Why You Should Pressure Wash Your Patio This Summer

pressure washing patio service

With summer on the way, it’s time to get your outdoor space party-ready. An unkempt patio can not only add an aged appearance to your property it could also decrease its overall value as deep-rooted dirt and debris can cause fractures within the brickwork, costing homeowners thousands every year for tile replacement or reporting. 

As spring comes to a close, it’s time to get your property looking its best for the rest of the year. We took the time to talk to the Paul Dyson team and are ready to answer some of the top questions this season. 

1. How can I get my garden summer ready? 

Calling in a professional cleaning team can give your garden the boost it needs for summer. Whether you use it as an entertainment space or to park your cars, the build-up of grease and dust is a cosmetic concern and can become a costly issue if left too long.

Pressure washing can easily cut through the dirt and debris and bring life back to your patio or driveway, and we have a host of tools and techniques (such as soft washing) at our disposal to ensure your driveway or patio is not damaged during the process.

2. I don’t want to replace my patio – will pressure washing do the job? 

Pressure washing can add years to your patio’s life and, if done correctly, will not cause any further damage.

While pressure washing can improve the overall aesthetics of the patio, for those deep-rooted issues caused by incorrect materials or burrowing bugs, repointing a patio’s joints may be the solution. We also offer a repointing service and can ensure that your patio is strong enough to withstand pressure washing well into the future.

3. What can be pressure washed? 

We can pressure wash a variety of surfaces and can deliver quality results on block paving, patio, tarmac, natural stone, imprinted concrete and brick. We take care to assess the quality of the stonework before any project and will be able to administer the correct service based on this.

Of course, if you’re uncertain whether your surface is a good candidate for pressure washing then get in touch with us and we can assist you.

4. How long does pressure washing take? 

This is entirely dependent on the type of pressure washing required and the size the of patio or driveway that we are working on. For the majority of our pressure washing jobs, it takes half a day to a full day, this way we can assure you that you’re receiving the best treatment available and we will work around times that suit your needs.

5. Is pressure washing expensive? 

Depending on the size of your space and the servicing needed, it may seem like pressure washing is an expensive option. pressure wash patio

However, since it uses cold water, it is cheaper than most power washing devices that rely on hot water. It is also cheaper than replacing your driveway or patio.

I also had a couple of stains on another carpet that they offered to do a spot clean at no extra charge. I will definitely use Paul Dyson again, and cannot recommend them highly enough.”
