Patio Cleaning

oakland patio cleaning



Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as easy as a lot of homeowners assume. Residential garden hoses can’t adequately wash away grime, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also result in chipped paint, a damaged lawn or garden and dirty water splashed onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is better left for a professional home exterior cleaning company in Oakland.

Our soft wash patio cleaning service begins with the application of a powerful but safe detergent that breaks down ground-in dirt and grime. Your brick, concrete or wood patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without damage to your lawn or landscaping or creating a mess.


For wood patio cleaning in Oakland, we use the exact same professional equipment to power wash patios as we use home exterior, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is a lot like regular power washing except the water pressure is considerably lower. This is important to preserve the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also helps to keep the wood from splintering which can lead to structural issues. We have knowledge and experience to utilize the exact pressure needed for the patio. If the patio has noticeable damage then we will utilize the lowest water pressure needed to get the job done safely.


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

Our Oakland brick patio cleaning process starts with solvents that can easily reach hidden areas of dirt and grime, dissolving even the toughest mud and ground-in debris. These solvents will remove moss, mold and algae that might be growing in cracks and crevices! We then use special brushes for deep cleaning brick patios, to push away all the heavy and unsightly grit and grime.


Pressure cleaning a concrete patio does more than make the space look better. Organic dirt, dust, silt and other such debris that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices of concrete might eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance too. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris becomes damp or wet, it becomes slick and slippery, creating a hazard for anyone walking on the patio!

Do not count on a garden hose or DIY online videos that attempt to show homeowners how to safely clean a patio, but instead leave this work to the professionals. Oakland Pressure Washing has several years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Oakland and the surrounding communities, and our professional soft wash techniques and brushes ensure all areas of your home’s patio are pristinely clean and ready for you and your family to enjoy!
