Pressure Washing Isn't Always the Best Choice
Did you know power washing smooth surfaces can do more harm than good? High water pressure can erode a surface layer, allowing dirt, mold and mildew to accumulate and grow faster than if you'd never pressure washed it. Also, since pressure washing with water does not kill the mold, mildew or algae, your property's exterior will get dirty again within 6 months. Soft washing smooth surfaces, such as trim, siding, metal, and most painted surfaces, is your best choice for a clean exterior. For this reason, we perform soft washing services in Parkton, MD and Baltimore County.
Benefits of Soft Washing
You clean the inside of your home on a regular basis, but what about the outside? Soft washing involves applying cleaning detergents at a low pressure, then gently rinsing away the contaminants with water. Unlike power washing, soft washing causes less damage to your home and helps it stay clean for longer. Here are the most common benefits to soft washing:
- Family Health & Safety: Mold and mildew can be hazardous to your health, causing respiratory issues and allergic reactions. Mold commonly enters the home through open doorways, windows, vents, and HVAC systems. Mildew loves moist environments, and can seep in through windows, carpets, or even under the refridgerator. Soft washing is a highly effective way to rid your home of mold, mildew, and dirt so they don't seep into the siding, and even worse, into your home.
- Curb Appeal: Having your home professionally cleaned extends its curb apeal! Soft washing involves a cleaning solution that removes tough stains and growth, and even helps prevent the growth from returning for a period of time.
- Pest Control: Removing dirt, algae, mildew, and mold on your siding, roof, and other outdoor surfaces destroys the habitats and breeding grounds of potential home-invading pests. Common contaminants are destroyed at a molecular level, which means your home will stay cleaner for longer.
