It is a common misconception that power washing cleans your home. In fact, it can make the dirt and grime on your house worse by pushing it into cracks in siding and trim, which then becomes ingrained in those surfaces. Power washing also causes damage to shingles, gutter guards, roof tiles, and more. When done incorrectly by inexperienced contractors, you end up with discolored siding or even damaged structures like gutters or fascia boards.
Power washing is an effective cleaning method but to selected types of cleaning. There are cleaning needs that require careful attention and a smart approach. For instance, power washing can remove molds and mildew from surfaces. However, the blasting and pressure eliminate them from the surface but they just mix in the air and go back into the surface to re-grow. After a few days or weeks, you’ll be dealing with the same problem again. Yes, you may have temporarily achieved a clean surface but you didn’t achieve a long-term solution.
**Why Soft Washing? **
Soft washing is the counterpart of power washing or blasting. We use biodegradable detergents that are safer for the environment as well as your property’s exterior finish and structure. This process does not cause damage to paint or stucco but will remove mold from brick walls; mildew from vinyl siding; algae stains from concrete driveways; dirt build-up on windowsills; grease residue on garage doors, and much more! Our soft washing process is gentle enough to be used every year without damaging any part of the structure.
