What to Use For Exterior House Washing

exterior house washing - before and after

Your house shouldn’t look brownish and greenish, but there it is, sitting on your exterior walls. If you live in Florida, this is a common problem, and you’re used to washing your house. 

Maybe you’ve done it yourself or hired a contractor to do it for you. No matter who does the job, your house needs to be clean. The dirt isn’t just an eyesore, it’s a buffet for bacteria, mold, and algae.

If you enjoy breathing easy, an exterior house washing also removes pollen and dust that could make your nose itch and eyes water.

So what exactly should you use for exterior house washing? Let’s dig deep into this question and not only answer what, but also why!

What is the best method for exterior house washing? 

In the past, you may have hired professionals to power wash your home. Hopefully, the intense pressure didn’t break your siding, windows, or vinyl fence! 

Power washing is tough on stains but it’s also rough on painted surfaces and fragile building materials. One wrong move and the high pressure will damage your property or cause serious injury.

Ten years ago, the high-pressure method was your only option, but now, you have a better choice. Soft washing is gentler and more effective at cleaning the exterior surface of a house.

What is Soft Washing?

The soft wash method, also known as “soft washing”, is a technique that uses low water pressure and a special cleaning solution designed to break down the grime, not your property! 

The truth is, soft washing offers a deeper and longer-lasting clean because it sanitizes. Instead of simply pushing algae, mold, and dirt around, a soft wash mixture has microbial properties that kill bacteria.  

We also treat your exterior home with an anti-fungal solution that helps to keep your home clean and beautiful.

Soft washing is better for the environment

Not only is the solution we use environmentally friendly, but soft washing uses less water! 

Did you know that power washing will use nearly 500 gallons in an hour? Soft washing only uses a fraction of that! Because of its low-pressure delivery, soft washing only uses about 100 gallons of liquid an hour (including the cleaning solution).

What’s more, you’ll need to soft wash less than you would need to pressure wash to keep your property clean. Since the solution disinfects the exterior of a house, the mold and algae have nothing to eat and won’t stick around.

If you’re worried about “chemicals”, our cleaning mixture should ease your fears. Our solution breaks down within a month, so any remnants vanish without a trace. There are no contaminants left behind to pollute the soil or water, so you can feel good about maintaining a spotless property.

A Professional Touch

You may be tempted to DIY your exterior house cleaning or hire a cheap handyman to rent a pressure washing machine. Although those options are available, they aren’t recommended.

The value of a professional house wash is much greater than you think. Pinching pennies leaves room for error and even disaster. If something goes wrong, you don’t have insurance to repair the damage like the pros do.
