Why Power Washing Your Patio is More Than Just A Home Improvement Hack
Updated: Jul 25, 2022
Power washing your patio is a great way to get it clean and ready for Summer. It removes all the dirt, grime, mold, pollen, and other nasty things that may have collected on your patio during the spring months. While you might think power washing your patio is only good for making it look new again, there are many other benefits to be had by doing so:
Removes Dirt and Sweeping it Away
Sweeping is a manual process that can be time-consuming and tedious. Power washing, on the other hand, is automated – meaning you don't have to do any of the work yourself!
It's also more efficient than sweeping because it cleans surfaces quickly and effectively. A power washer can get into corners that are unreachable by sweeping or vacuuming, which means you'll be able to remove dirt quickly and efficiently when using this method.
Blasts Away Debris
You'll also be able to remove dirt, debris and other things that can damage the patio surface. For example, leaves build up over time and they need to be removed. If you leave them there, they might attract pests like ants or termites that could harm your home. They might also attract mold, mildew and fungus which will cause damage over time as well. Or maybe you just want to get rid of dead leaves so you don't have them sitting around your patio area?
If you are having problems with birds nesting under your deck or patio because it has become a popular spot for them due to its location near water sources such as rivers or lakes then power washing is an excellent way of getting rid of this problem once and for all! It will blast away anything from their nests including eggs which means no more bird poop everywhere either!
Gets Rid of Bird Droppings, Mud and Grime
Bird droppings, mud and grime are all things that can be removed with the power of water. That’s not to say you should avoid cleaning your patio in other ways, but if you’re able to use this method for bird droppings or mud, it will keep your patio looking fresh and clean. You may also want to consider having a professional power wash your patio if it has become too dirty or covered in mildew, fungus or mold due to lack of proper care.
Removes Mildew, Fungus and Mold
Mildew, fungus and mold are common problems on patios. They can cause health problems for you, your family and pets. They are unsightly and can cause damage to your patio. With power washing you can remove these annoying problems without harmful chemicals.
Keeps Your Home Pest Free
If you’re a homeowner, keeping your home pest-free is no easy task. Pests like ants, roaches, and spiders can be a problem for homeowners. But power washing your patio can help kill these bugs. Not only does it keep them from coming into your home in the first place but it also prevents them from laying eggs or breeding inside your house. This helps keep disease at bay by making sure that they don’t spread their germs on surfaces of items throughout the house—things like food prep surfaces and bedding areas where we sleep every night after work or school hours have ended for the day!
In terms of safety risks posed by pests invading our homes there are other factors to consider as well: having an infestation of ticks living near doors or windows could result in someone getting bitten if they were standing nearby while opening up those locations during entry into their residence (especially given how many people tend not wear long pants when entering/exiting). This would obviously be very unpleasant but could also lead someone else into becoming infected with Lyme Disease which is spread through bites."
