Let’s face it—your outside surfaces may have seen better days. After a few years, your sidewalks, driveways, patios, decks, and pathways begin to show wear and tear. But do not worry—this is no fault of your own. Outside surfaces are subjected to around the clock exposure to sunlight and heat, rain, snow, wind, and foot traffic. After a while it may seem slightly discolored, and running the hose over it just does not work. Luckily, Lakewood Ranch Pressure Washing and Handyman Services offers surface cleaning as a solution to your not-so-perfect surfaces.

There are several reasons your sidewalks, driveways, patios, decks and pathways seem to be slightly discolored. After years of foot traffic, dirt and grime can collect over these surfaces. Wind is also a way for dust and soil to be picked up and transported to these surfaces. Packed into the microscopic air pockets, these deep stains are difficult to remove, and rain just does not do the trick to wash it away. 

Also, exposure to water is a common factor for discoloration of your surfaces. Whether it is only localized around your pool, gutter, or leaky hose where water is constantly dripping, or it is over the entire driveway because you live in an area with prolonged rainy seasons, outside surfaces can become a breeding ground for mold. In areas that are in contact with water every single day, such as a pool deck, a layer of slime can easily form on the surface. Don’t fret—these slimes and molds tend to be perfectly harmless, however they are displeasing to look at and can be potentially dangerous. Especially in homes with the elderly or children, mold and slime increases the fall risk on your property. 

Whether you want to keep your driveway spotless so the neighbors don’t talk, keep your pool deck clean so the children don’t slip, keep the stone pathway you spent hours building looking new, or keep your outdoor patio looking like the backyard paradise you intended it to be, surface cleaning is the best way to address the dinge and grime of your outdoor surfaces. 

Surface cleaning is similar to pressure or power washing. High-pressure hoses are used to blast away dirt, dust, mold, and grime from walkway surfaces. It is relatively quick, and can restore your surfaces to their original condition. Lakewood Ranch Pressure Washing and Handyman Services has trained staff who are versed in surface cleaning, and can complete the job quickly and efficiently. They staff are able to determine what amount of pressure to use so it does not damage the surface. Certain materials, such as a stone pathway, will require less pressure than a concrete slab, so it is pertinent to the safety of your surfaces to have a professional conduct the surface cleaning. 

Surface cleaning is a great way to restore your driveways, sidewalks, patios, decks, and pathways, but if it is not done properly and professionally, you can risk permanently damaging your surface.
