We DO NOT pressure wash the aluminum, hardi, or vinyl siding on your home! Pressure Washing can drive the water underneath your siding causing extensive and costly damage. We do use a pressure washer on brick-sided homes, but as specialists, we know that extreme care must be taken not to damage the mortar between the bricks. Using high pressure or coming at it at the wrong angle can dislodge the mortar – and can break windows!
Soft washing is safe and effective, especially for large areas and whole houses; this works best for things like mildew and green slime. However, it doesn’t remove heavy dirt buildup, asphaltic staining of gutters, spider webs, arachnid frass, and insect nests.
Also, a delicate touch must be used in cleaning special wood shutters and trim. That’s where the hand scrubbing comes in, and that’s why we recommend both as part of a complete “house beautiful” cleaning package. We know of no other company that offers such thorough and comprehensive home exterior cleaning services.
Also, if you plan on doing any painting or caulking, especially around doors and windows, hand scrubbing the areas to be painted will make for a better, longer lasting paint job.
