Low Pressure Washing consists of quality detergents and low pressure to gently remove mold and mildew from the exterior of your home.
High Pressure Washing is the use of high pressure to remove mold and mildew. High pressure can cause many issues including peeling of paint, damaging of siding or stucco. High pressure can also make water seep behind walls and cause major damage.
NOTE: High pressure is needed in certain applications such as preparing wood or concrete to be repainted.For pressure washing concrete driveways, sidewalks, etc. We use flat surface cleaners. Caution is still needed in these areas but for most general washing and maintenance of siding a low pressure wash is primarily best.
Why Choose Low-Pressure House Washing?
Low-pressure house washing provides a variety of benefits to homeowners including:
- Extends the life of paint: Painted surfaces, such as your home, can suffer damage from high pressure washing techniques. Paint can chip or become dull when too much pressure is used during the house washing process. By using low-pressure washing, you will extend the life of your exterior house paint and bring back the luster of your painted finish.
- Prevents damage to siding: High pressure washing can cause gouge marks, dents or even holes in vinyl siding. In some cases, the vinyl siding can become unattached from the home if the pressure is too much. High pressure washing on aluminum siding can cause streaks and wand marks, leaving homes and buildings looking unprofessional.
- Kills mold, mildew, and algae: High pressure washing only uses the water pressure to remove the mold, mildew and algae, which doesn’t prevent it from coming back. Cleaners will remove the source of the mold and mildew. This will leave no food source for the mold which keeps the mold away longer than high pressure.
