Our Patio Cleaning Services
Pressure washing is powerful and effective, but sometimes, it’s also damaging. That’s why our team uses safer soft washing techniques to clean concrete, bricks, stone, and pavement.
You can trust our team to treat your patio with:
- The right water pressure and temperature
- Environmentally friendly cleaning agents
- High-quality post-wash sealers for protection
Soft washing doesn’t just clean your patio with blasts of water - it kills algae or bacteria growth. This protects your outside space for months (if not years) to come.

Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend pressure washing (or soft washing) your concrete patios at least once a year. This removes grime and debris while also preventing future dirt buildup and mold/algae growth.
The most ideal times to clean your patio are during the spring and summer months. This is when pollen, algae, and mold growth is most prevalent. Power washing your patio can treat these issues, cleaning your outdoor space and reducing common allergy symptoms.
The cost of professionally cleaning a patio varies, depending on its size and current condition.
Typically, most homeowners pay between $200 and $400, but that price can increase if you also pressure wash decks, driveways, and other outdoor elements.
For a more accurate price estimate, contact Pacific Exterior today. We treat homes throughout Northern California and can give you a specific quote for your property’s needs.
Yes - power washing can be very harsh on concrete or stone patios. This is especially true if the incorrect tip or water temperature is used.
Washing a patio with a water pressure level that’s too high can cause:
- Surface degradation
- Permanent marks
- Joint sand damage
Before purchasing a power washer and cleaning the patio on your own, we recommend speaking with a professional to learn what level of wash you need and how you can safely tackle the job.
Better yet, talk to our team about the benefits of soft washing rather than harsh power washing.
Although water alone may remove some stains and dirt, you’ll need to use a cleaning agent to effectively remove bacteria, algae, mold, mildew, and other potentially harmful substances.
At Pacific Exterior, we use eco-friendly soaps and materials to wash our clients’ patios. Our goal isn’t just to make the patio look better - we want it to be truly clean and safe for homeowners to enjoy.
We recommend sealing concrete patios at least every two to three years. This keeps them looking newer and cleaner, but it also prevents the quick buildup of dirt and grime in the future. Sealers can also prevent concrete patios from cracking, pitting, and generally deteriorating.
This is often the most expensive part of professional cleaning a patio. Sealing concrete usually costs between $1,400 and $3,000, depending on the size of the space and the kind of sealer used.
Fortunately, you do not need to seal your concrete every time you wash your patio. Talk to our team about how often you should seal your concrete to preserve its appearance for many years to come.
You can use 3,000 PSI to wash patios, as well as driveways and sidewalks. Going beyond 3,500 PSI can damage concrete, so be wary of using heavy-duty commercial pressure washers on an average residential patio.
We typically recommend waiting at least a month to seriously wash a new concrete patio, driveway, or sidewalk. This gives the concrete time to cure and set properly.
If you notice slick spots from mold or algae, or you can smell the growth, then you need to schedule a professional patio washing appointment soon. This is the best way to tackle the problem before it spreads and causes more damage.
