Can Brick Surfaces be Pressure Washed Safely?

Pressure washing is a common method for cleaning various outdoor surfaces, including brick. However, many people wonder whether pressure washing brick surfaces is safe or not. Should you pressure wash brick walls, sidewalks, decks, pool areas and driveways?

Alpharetta Brick Pressure Washing Services

Brick is a durable and resilient material. It can withstand a lot of pressure, so pressure washing your brick surfaces is generally safe. However, you should be aware of some potential risks and safety concerns before you start pressure washing your brick.

One of the main risks associated with pressure washing bricks is damage to the surface. If you use too much pressure or the wrong type of nozzle, you could chip or crack the brick. This can lead to costly repairs and a less-than-perfect end result.

The mortar between your bricks is another concern. Older or damaged mortar may easily flake away and allow unwanted moisture intrusion behind your brick walls, which causes significant damage. The professionals at Alpha Pressure Washing in Alpharetta can determine if your brick walls or other surfaces can be pressure washed safely and can perform the job without causing damage to your home.

How We Clean Your Brick Safely

So, how do our professionals pressure wash your brick surfaces safely?

We Use Low Pressure Settings

Knowing the correct pressure for the most effective and safest results is the key to pressure washing any surface. While brick and mortar are extremely strong and typically last for decades, both materials are somewhat porous. A gentler pressure setting avoids damaging the brick surface or blasting away loose areas of mortar. This and safe cleaning agents allow our team to effectively scour away mold, mildew, grime, weathering and other unwanted substances to reveal pristine and undamaged brick surfaces.

We Use the Correct Nozzle

Along with a lower pressure setting, our team chooses a nozzle that is appropriate for your brick and mortar surfaces. For brick, a fan or rotary nozzle is typically best. In addition, the distance of the nozzle from the surface is critical. Even a lower pressure can damage some materials if the nozzle is held too close. Our teams know the proper techniques for cleaning brick and other surfaces to produce stellar results without damage.
