What Services Do We NOT Offer?

We do not offer NON VINYL WRAPPED aluminum siding cleaning. The risk of damaging these surfaces is very high due to neglect, becoming dry and brittle with age, or in the case of aluminum siding that is NOT vinyl coated, the painted coating tends to be heavily oxidized and nearly impossible to clean.

What Does "Soft Wash" Mean?

Soft washing is a process that uses a high pressure machine with modifications to clean algae, mildew, and other grime off of surfaces with a biodegradable detergent at low pressure instead of high pressure. It's much safer for vinyl and painted surfaces and follows most siding manufacturers recommendations for cleaning vinyl. A low pressure electric pump machine can be used in some cases.

How Should I Prepare For My Pressure Washing Service?

If it's a house wash we require:

All windows closed and locked.

All exterior lights and electrical devices must be turned off.

Any potted plants or fabrics of any kind should be moved at least 20 feet from the house.

Anyone that may be entering or leaving the house during the service should be made aware that the detergent can stain clothing and that hoses, machines, ladders and other trip hazards may be present.

If it's a concrete cleaning service we ask that no vehicles are present and that the area is clear.

If it's gutter cleaning service we ask that anyone entering or leaving the house is aware that ladders may be outside a door and that the contents of the gutter will be falling from overhead.

Can The Detergent Kill Plants And Grass?

The simple answer is yes, however, dilution and neutralization of the detergent is a part of the process. The detergent ultimately is biodegradable and after neutralization is no more harmful than pool water. Proper process is key to ensuring safe use of the detergent. We have strict guidelines for use that protect your property and landscaping.
