Patio Cleaning

athens patio cleaning



Pressure washing a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as simple as most homeowners think. Residential garden hoses can’t properly wash away grime, dirt and mud that settles into the pits and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a home’s patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn or garden and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Athens.

Our soft wash patio cleaning process begins with the application of a powerful but safe solvent that eliminates deep dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be gently rinsed, with low water pressure and without damage to your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess.


For wood patio cleaning in Athens, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use on a home exterior, but we use a different system. “Softwashing” is like power washing but the pressure is considerably lower. This is important to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing a patio also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural problems. We have the knowledge and experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.


Brick patios are often much harder to clean than wood or concrete. Brick patio tiles have raised, textured areas along their surface. These sections make effective brick patio cleaning challenging, even if using a pressure washer.

Our Athens brick patio cleaning service starts with specialty solvents that can easily reach deep areas of dirt and grime, dissolving the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will dissolve moss, mold and algae that is growing in those cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push off all the heavy and unsightly grit and debris.


Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the space look nicer. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete will get blown into the lawn and ruin its appearance as well. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss, mold and algae. When this type of debris becomes damp, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that is walking on the patio!

Do not count on a garden hose or DIY videos that try to show you how to safely clean a patio, but leave this job to the professionals. Athens Pressure Washing has several years of experience in patio cleaning in Athens and the surrounding areas, and our professional soft wash systems and brushes ensure all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
