In most cases, normal pressure washing is too hard on most homes such as vinyl. Depending on your home’s exteriors, we use different processes. Soft washing is what we do in the majority of the homes in the area. Soft washing is a process in which the cleaning solutions do the majority of the cleaning, instead of trying to blast stains away with high pressure and possibly damaging the home’s exterior. Microbial cleaning solutions are applied to the home’s exterior with a very low-pressure pump which would be equivalent to spraying your home with a garden hose.
The cleaning solution then dwells on the exterior allowing it to break down and kill any mold, mildew, algae, lichen, cobwebs, dirt, and grime. After a proper dwell time, we then use very low-pressure steam clean to safely remove any remaining debris from the surface. Using hot water or steam adds another degree of cleaning and disinfecting that cold water just can’t accomplish. Our equipment gives us the ability to use cold water adjustable up to 210 degrees. Our house soft washing process is safe on all plants and landscaping. Soft washing is an alternative to standard power washing.
Other types of homes may require a little more pressure on their material such as brick, stone, and metal. With the ability to heat our water and steam pressure wash we can clean that little bit more stubborn surfaces without damaging them. Low pressure and high heat are safer and more effective than high pressure and cold water any day. Don’t let someone inexperienced and under-equipped ruin the beauty of your home.
Any homes with wood exteriors are cleaned a little differently as well. Wood sided homes first receive an application of wood cleaner. This wood cleaner is different from our microbial solution for soft washing but essentially does the same thing in breaking down the organics on the wood. A low-pressure wash with cold water is done to remove any dirt, grime, mold, mildew, algae, moss, cobwebs, and debris.
Hot water is not used on wood as it will swell the grain of the wood making applications of paints, stains, or sealers not adhere properly and not last long. If staying with the natural wood look, a final application of a wood brightener is applied to bring back and restore the natural beauty and color of the wood.
So no matter what material, how big, how small, or how tall your home may be, Prestige Pressure Washing has the know-how, equipment, and cleaning solutions to get your home washed and give you back that curb appeal you and your home deserve.
