Read on through to the next section to find out.
Just know that each home, each building substrate comes with its own level of protective abilities and tolerance. We understand this and is why our approach to washing homes varies from one customer to the next.
Low Pressure House Washing
House power washing - Should you do it?
Before we go into what exactly soft washing is, we need to understand why we need it. So why use this method? Why not get any old power washing equipment and douse your property with a highly pressurized stream of water?
It’s because most sidings are not designed or built to take on that level of pressure. You will seldom (if ever) see the rain coming down at that rate. When a vinyl siding is pressure washed, the water seeps into the walls causing a whole lot of moisture. This, in turn, encourages the growth of moss and algae from the outside through to the inside of your home. Sooner or later, you start to notice dampness inside your home. All these impact your property’s structure as well as your health. That right, the algae, moss, and mildew can cause respiratory issues (especially to young, developing children).
Why Soft Washing?
Alright, alright I get it, you say. So how is one to keep their home exterior clean then? Enter Soft washing. This low-pressure method is simply pressure washing dialed down to a point where it is still effective in cleansing the outer layer all the while sustaining its protective capabilities. It is not simply a case of low pressure though, we use a higher volume of water mixed with a bio-degradable chemical. This combination has proven to just as effective (if not more) in achieving stellar results.
With this method, you will still find no traces of algae, mold, moss or dirt. You will see the same aesthetic results. What you won’t find is surface damage affecting your home wall’s life span, nor introducing health-affecting micro-organisms swarming through your home.
Unique Methods For Your Unique Siding
As we all know, not every house is built the same and the same goes for its sidings. Every varying substrate comes with its own set of washing and caring requirements. Unfortunately, a lot of house washing companies take this matter lightly and blindly use incompatible procedures. Not us. We take the appropriate amount of time to carefully analyze each one of our customer’s property before suggesting and advising on how to proceed with the washing service.
There are a few types of commonly-found sidings: fiber cement, vinyl, and cedar.
With a vinyl siding, you will notice that it does not absorb liquid substances as much. This helps the surface stay stain-free. The downside is that it tends to be quite the magnet for pollutants which means it does indeed get dirtier than other siding types. The good news is with proper cleaning it can regain its once beautiful look.
If you notice stains quite regularly then you most likely are dealing with a cedar siding. Moreover, once the top layering begins to lose its protective capabilities the algae and fungus waste no time in entering into the walls. On the bright side, because of the top-most protective layering, the surface does not very easily show dirt. It’s important to note that cleaning results will not be as stunning as that with a vinyl siding and one should set expectations accordingly.
