Soft wash cleaning starts with a specialty detergent or surfactant. This cleaner dissolves thick dirt, mud, dust, soot, and other debris. Next, a contractor uses a low-pressure rinse to remove all that dirt and grime, without splashing, splattering, or mess!
Soft wash pressure washing is safe for virtually every outdoor surface and especially roofs! Low-pressure cleaning eliminates the risk of stripping shingle granules or loosening shingles and tiles. Soft wash detergents also penetrate all the nooks and crannies of a roof, ensuring a thorough clean.
Soft wash pressure washing is a great choice for any exterior materials and surfaces around your property. This includes shingled or tiled roofs, wood fences and decks, patio pavers and stone, and aluminum siding. Low-pressure soft washing also provides excellent cleaning where you need to avoid messy splatter, such as gutters and doorways.
Any cleaning using pressurized water is pressure washing. However, soft washing uses special cleaners and then low-pressure rinsing, usually just slightly stronger than a garden hose.
Gutters trap rain, snow, and ice, and direct this water to nearby downspouts and away from your home. Clogged gutters allow that water to wash over their sides where it might then pool around a foundation, risking damage. Also, roofs absorb standing water in gutters, also risking damaged shingles, wood rot, and mold!
If you notice rainwater running down your home’s exterior walls during a storm, your gutters probably need cleaning! Also, call us if you see leaves and twigs building up in the gutters. Standing water also attracts insects, so if you notice mosquitos and other pests swarming around your home’s gutters, it’s probably time to schedule needed cleaning!
Soot, air pollution residues, and other debris clinging to a home risk damaged brick and siding. Additionally, power washing removes bothersome pollen, mold, dust, smoke, and other irritants trapped along brick and siding, for easier breathing!
Most homeowners find that annual exterior power washing offers a sufficient clean. However, if you notice dirt and debris clinging to your home between washing appointments, give us a call! Your neighborhood might experience more airborne sand, silt, soot, and other debris that require repeated cleaning. Also, if you’re bothered by mold, dust, and other irritants, you might appreciate more frequent house washing!
