Questions about Pressure Washing

What’s the difference between pressure and power washing?

There is really no difference between the two terms. Either phrase can be substituted for our service. Don’t be concerned about the term “power” or “pressure". Our technicians are trained to use the proper pressure to clean each surface.

What is softwashing?


Unlike pressure washing, softwashing uses low-pressure pumps (softwashing uses about as much pressure as a regular garden hose) and a combination of biodegradable mildewcides, algaecides, and soaps that are custom-blended for your particular need. Softwashing is not only more effective, but it uses less water than power washing too!
Softwashing is the method recommended by most major insurers as well as the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturing Association (ARMA), so it won’t void your warranty!

Why should I clean my roof?

Many homeowners don’t think they need to regularly clean their roof because their shingles came with a multi-year warranty, but the manufacturer actually suggests that you clean them. Just like having a 100,000 mile warranty on your car doesn’t mean that you don’t need to change the oil for that long, taking care of your roof will make sure your roof takes care of you.

 

Why should I choose a professional to wash my home or business?

Pressure washing and softwashing can quickly become a science project without proper experience. The surface, cleaning product, pressure and type of pressure washer you’re using all play a vital role in how clean your surface will get. More importantly, for how long they will stay clean too. With over 20 years experience, we understand what it takes to clean even the most difficult surfaces. From vinyl siding, to concrete, decks and paver stones, we have the products, equipment and insurance to guarantee you a clean surface, every time.

Are your chemicals safe?

All of our products are home-safe and we make a strong effort to ensure the use of only “green” products. The surface you need cleaned will determine what chemical will be used. How dirty your surface is will determine how much chemical will be used. Our power washers allow for variable pressures to keep minimal pressure on a particular surface. Cleaning vinyl siding with our soft washing technique uses a mixture of eco-friendly chemicals and very low pressure. For some concrete cleaning jobs, we do not need any chemicals. Just good ole fashioned water pressure and a flat surface cleaner designed specifically for concrete cleaning. The deck cleaning chemicals we use depend on the type of deck and staining application that is currently being used.

How often should I pressure wash my home?

Will high pressure damage my home?

Yes, high pressure can wreak havoc on your home’s surfaces. Without proper training, you can rip the siding off a home, etch a deck causing permanent damage or injury can be caused if high pressure touches skin or clothing. Our fully insured and skilled technicians will deliver the perfect care to your home. We use only safe and tested methods for pressure washing.

Why should I pressure wash/clean my concrete?

Concrete cleaning is as much protection as it is aesthetic. Pressure washing concrete removes built up dirt and grim. Pressure washing and cleaning concrete can also help prevent a slippery surface. Concrete can become a breeding ground for mildew. This is especially important around swimming pools, fountains, and ponds.
