It’s time for your annual house cleaning! From snow and sleet to rotting leaves and mud splatters, our homes accumulate all kinds of dirt faster than ever, especially during the fall. When you’re confronted with a dirty and damaged house, it can be tempting to want to bust out a power washer and spray down everything in sight. But pressure washing is some of the most dangerous cleaning you can do on your home. Soft washing presents a far safer alternative to siding cleaning, but can you actually use it safely?

            Pressure washing is a commonly used solution to cleaning various surfaces on a home, including the exterior, but homeowners should know to stay far away from it by now. Pressure washing involves applying a highly pressurized water stream to a house to literally blast the debris away. In some situations, power washing might be appropriate for siding and can be a quick and effective way to spray the dirt away. Unfortunately, power washing is often far too harsh for siding, as the highly pressurized spray can dent, crack, or even destroy your home’s exterior. If you have a brick or slightly sturdier siding on your home, you might be in the clear, but it’s still best to consult a professional cleaning team for advice on what’s best for your home.

            Soft washing is a far better cleaning method that you can absolutely use on your siding for best outcomes in terms of home cleaning. Soft washing is done using less powerful sprays of water for cleaning and rinsing. Soft washing utilizes special cleaning solutions to break down debris trapped on your home’s exterior. These cleaning solutions are eco-friendly and will not strip protective coatings on your house’s siding, but will still scour away every speck of dirt until your exterior looks brand new. Soft washing is a safer candidate for cleaning your siding, and hiring a professional exterior cleaning company can ensure that your home is returned to tip-top condition in a safe, environmentally friendly way. Our professional cleaning team can adapt to any home need in order to safely and effectively scrub your siding sparkling clean!
