Getting Your Patio Ready for the Summer
As the weather gets warmer starting in spring, our thoughts naturally turn to spending more time outdoors. For many of us, that means thinking of warm summer days grilling and spending time on the patio with family and friends. It may seem that those days are months away, but spring is the right time of year to get started cleaning your patio and getting it ready for all of your summer activities. In fact, the patio is one of the most important spots to make sure is on your spring cleaning list!
After a long winter of storms and cold weather, your patio needs a good, deep spring cleaning. You may notice that the decking boards on your patio or deck seem darker than you remembered it being in the fall. That ugly discoloration and unsightly stains on your siding, deck or patio are actually bacteria and fungus beginning to erode your patio surfaces. It’s clear that your patio and decking needs a deep cleaning treatment, but where should you start?
What Exactly Is Soft Washing?
Often, when we think of cleaning the exterior of our homes the first thing that comes to mind is using a pressure washer. The notion of pressure washing, however, often comes with the stigma of causing possible damage. You may associate pressure washing with paint being worn thin, damage to windows and siding, harmed landscaping or other possible damage from too much pressure. You don’t have to worry! The exterior of your home can be thoroughly deep cleaned using a system free of pressure washing that returns your decking and patio to its former glory with no uneasiness about the health of your property.
Ned Stevens’ team of cleaners are experts in safely cleaning all aspects of the exterior of your home, including your patio and deck. The professionals at Ned Stevens use a process called, “soft washing” which utilizes special low-pressure nozzles attached to the end of a pressure washing tool. Soft washing thoroughly cleans the outer surfaces of your home including the roof, deck, patio, siding, or fence while helping to elongate the life of your paint and masonry by removing erosive elements such as moss, mold, algae, and pollen. To really make sure that all the offending bacteria and fungi are killed and kept at bay, we deliver an eco-friendly, biodegradable chemical to remove all the biological elements, safely removing stains without damaging surfaces. Our process does not include any brushing or scraping, so you can be confident that our soft washing procedure won’t cause any damage.
