Getting Ready for a Spring Patio or Deck Pressure Wash

As winter’s deep snows melt and spring begins to emerge, it’s time to start getting ready to enjoy the outdoors. However, winter can be harsh on your patio or deck, leaving it covered in leaves, algae, and other debris that needs to be cleared off during your initial deep cleaning for the season. Here’s a quick look at how to prepare for a spring patio or deck pressure washing for your Rochester home.

Power washing uses water at high pressure, often with detergents, surfactants, or similar cleaners that help remove dirt, mold, algae, and other material from your deck or patio surface. As the mixture impacts the surface of your deck or patio, it lifts these items off of it and washes them away, much more effectively and quickly than you can achieve with a garden hose or soap and a bucket.

This service is often hired out, and you want to get the most from your money, which means a little preparation work is required to get ready for your pressure washing appointment. Here’s a quick list of items you should consider:

  • Any outdoor furniture, rugs, or other furnishings should be removed ahead of the appointment. This makes it easier for the pressure washer to treat the entire surface of your deck or patio.
  • Do those furnishings also need cleaning? Keep them close by so that they’re within easy reach, and the pressure washing company may be able to help you with that part of the process as well.
  • Is anything plugged in to an outside outlet? Outside outlets have gaskets that protect them from water, but not if something is plugged into it. Unplug those items so that the water in the area doesn’t cause a shock.
  • Is there excess debris anywhere? We get it, snow and wind cause leaves and other debris to build up on your porch or deck. Use a push broom or rake to remove them from the surface to make pressure washing easier.

By taking these few steps ahead of your pressure washing appointment, you can ensure that the technician can focus on making your patio or deck look amazing again instead of having to move things around.
