Avoiding Damage From Professional Concrete Cleaning

Concrete cleaning damage

Can power washing damage concrete? The surprising answer is yes.

It's a common misconception that because concrete is so durable that it's impossible to damage, especially from just a stream of water. Of course, the logical conclusion is that you shouldn't schedule pressure washing for your concrete surfaces.

That's not true, and you should most certainly include your concrete surfaces among the exterior details you get professionally cleaned when it's time for power washing. What's essential is that you better understand what helps, so you get the best possible results from your exterior cleaning services without damaging your personal property.

Safe But Effective Concrete Cleaning

There are several exterior surfaces that you can pressure wash:

  • Concrete Surfaces
  • Driveways
  • Pavers
  • Patios
  • Sidewalks

Yet, before scheduling professional concrete cleaning, there are some things that you should know:

  • Pressure washing can degrade your concrete surface.
  • This damage can be minute enough not to be easily visible.
  • Irreversible damage can occur without anyone seeing it happen, even industry professionals.
  • Some concrete is weaker than others; natural aging can weaken it.
  • The most common reasons for damage include excessive pressure, incorrect nozzle, or holding the nozzle too close to the concrete. Also, if the injector is held over the same area for too long, this can cause damage.

The best way to avoid damaging your concrete is to choose the professional you hire carefully. An established pressure washing company with a flawless reputation is the smartest place to start.

Don't work with contractors who do this as supplemental side work to their primary professional focus. Also, don't agree to work with anyone who uses the same cleaning technique for all exterior surfaces.
