Regular House Washing: The Key to Preserving Your Home's Integrity and Beauty
The damp and warm climate in the Greater Vancouver Area, BC provides a perfect breeding ground for organics such as mold and algae to grow. Over time homes tend to cultivate a layer of green and black dirt and grime. Not only is this ugly to look at, it slowly rots away the surface of the home. Algae is acidic, it causes oxidation and increases the rate of aging of most surfaces such as paint and vinyl. Mold causes health problems and allergies. We recommend annual house washing to keep it looking good, extend the lifespan of your siding, and prevent white surfaces from permanently staining.
What Is Soft Washing?
We use a method of cleaning known as soft washing to clean the exterior of a house. Soft washing is the safest and most effective method to clean most surfaces. Soft washing is similar to doing laundry because it uses detergents to remove dirt and grime. Unlike power washing which uses high pressure water to blast away dirt, soft washing does not use any pressure and is gentle on surfaces. High pressure causes damage to siding and paint and can force water into small openings causing mold. Cleaning vinyl siding with high pressure will strip the factory UV protection layer causing it to oxidize and become chalky over time.
Our House Washing Process
We spray a blend of environmentally safe chemicals onto the home with specialized equipment that is mounted to the back of our truck. Our soft wash system can spray up to 35ft. We can easily wash up to four story homes safely from the ground, and have methods to clean even taller structures. The soft wash solution gently dissolves away organic materials and dirt. About 10 minutes after applying the solution we rinse the home with clean water. Soft washing is very effective at cleaning irregular surfaces such as soffits, fascia, and vinyl because the solution penetrates into all the cracks and crevices that are inaccessible by conventional cleaning methods. The soft wash solution kills organics such as algae and mold instantly therefore the surface stays cleaner for a longer.
