What is Soft Washing? and why is it beneficial to my property?
The term soft washing refers to a cleaning method that is exactly how it sounds. By professionally applying the correct cleaning and disinfecting detergents we can wash your roof or home with with the pressure from a garden hose!
The industry standard for cleaning and maintaining your properties curb appeal is soft washing, why? The reason soft washing has become so popular with the leading cleaning contractors throughout the world is that it offers a deep clean without the risk of irreversible damage to the sensitive materials that protect your home or building.
Have you ever seen a "roof cleaner" blasting away a roof surface with their pressure washer (and by blasting away we literally mean blasting away the protective granules and the lifespan of that roof) only to see algae regrowth within the year? Not only will pressure washing void your shingles warranty in some cases it can as well void parts of your home insurance all while not removing the spores that are causing the issue in the first place! Soft washing is the answer to this, by completely irradicating the organic growth that is damaging your roof without using damaging high pressure! Learn more on our
roof cleaning page.
We also apply the principles of soft washing to exterior siding. The protective siding on your home or business is designed to keep moisture and rain out, the typical design is to shed water from the top down and can not withstand high pressure water application from the lower side. When this happens water is forced in behind the siding and can lead to further very costly repairs. With the correct application of a soft washing technique we can apply our cleaning detergents to kill organic growth on the surface and break the bond of dirt and other buildups essentially lifting them to the surface where they can be gently rinsed away. To learn more about why soft washing achieves a deeper and longer lasting clean for your home and business please visit our
house washing page.
Why is exterior cleaning and maintenance important?
Everyone loves that fresh and clean look to their business and home, but what are some of the other advantages to keeping your property sparkling?
- Water and wind damage can result in costly repairs to your roof. Lack of maintenance of your roof or gutters may impact your ability to obtain affordable home or property insurance. Debris-free gutters help safeguard against water ending up inside your walls and ceiling; a roof in good repair, free of moss or algae will assist in reducing the risk of loss from wind or rain storms.
-Though your insurance company is there to help you with many unexpected or accidental losses, the maintenance and upkeep of your home or business property is your responsibility. Whether it be your deck and fencing, or the exterior maintenance of your home, keeping your property in good repair for your enjoyment and the safety of others who visit your home or business, will help prevent small issues from becoming large problems.
- Keep your warranties. Did you know that most ashpalt shingle warranties will be void if there is algae staining or moss present.
