Patio Cleaning

santa monica patio cleaning



Pressure cleaning a wood, brick or concrete patio isn’t as easy as many homeowners assume. Standard garden hoses can’t properly wash away silt, dirt and mud that falls into the cracks and pores of typical patio materials. Cleaning a patio with a pressure washer can also lead to chipped patio paint, a damaged lawn and muddy water splattered onto your home’s exterior! Patio cleaning is best suited for a professional home exterior cleaning service in Santa Monica.

Our soft wash patio cleaning process starts with the application of a strong but safe detergent that dissolves embedded dirt and debris. Your patio, can then be rinsed gently, with low water pressure and without harming your landscaping or lawn or creating a mess on your property.


For wood patio cleaning in Santa Monica, we use the same professional equipment to power wash patios that we use on a home exterior, we use a different technique. “Softwashing” is like power washing except the pressure is kept much lower. This is necessary to protect the paint, stains and finishes. Soft washing also keep the wood from splintering which can cause structural issues. We have knowledge and years of experience to determine the exact pressure needed. If the patio has visible damage then we will use the absolute lowest pressure needed to get the job done right.


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

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


Pressure washing a concrete patio does more than make the space look better. Dirt, dust, grime and other debris that gets caught in the cracks and crevices of concrete can eventually get blown into the lawn and will then ruin its appearance. Cleaning a concrete patio can also remove moss and mildew, mold and algae. When this debris gets damp, it becomes very slick and very slippery, creating a hazard for anyone that’s walking around the patio!

Don’t count on a garden hose or DIY videos that try to show homeowners how to clean a patio, but leave this job to the professionals. Santa Monica Pressure Washing has years of hands-on experience in patio cleaning in Santa Monica and the surrounding areas, and our soft wash techniques and specialty brushes guarantee all areas of your home’s patio are spotlessly clean and are ready for you and your family to enjoy!
