There’s nothing quite so taxing for a first time home-owner as trying to figure out how to clean the exterior of your home. It’s definitely important: keeping the outside of your home clean is essential in preventing organic buildup of materials like dead leaves, tree branches, or storm debris can mold or rot through parts of your siding. Mold, mildew, and pollen can build up in gutters, vents, and other crevices along your home, damaging air quality in and outside of your home. A dirty home also ruins your home’s aesthetic appearance, making your house look dilapidated and broken down which can in turn drag down property value for your home and others and send the wrong message about you to your neighbors.
Washing your home is a great way to transform your house from dirty and outdated to sparkling new, but figuring out exactly how to clean it is a major challenge. Many people would suggest pressure washing, a common exterior cleaning method. This method can be effective, but it’s highly labor-intensive and requires close contact between the person using the pressure washer and the surface being cleaned. This can make cleaning taller parts of your home a major problem as well as create safety concerns if the pressurized water jet were to rebound back on you. Another drawback is that sometimes water alone, no matter how high the pressure is, just can’t remove certain stains that are commonly found on the exterior of a house. The harder the stain is, the more pressure you use to remove it, and the higher risk you have of damaging your home. Thankfully, there’s an even better alternative available to you: hiring a professional exterior cleaning team to soft wash your home.
Soft washing involves using a foamy cleaning mixture and low-pressure water that gently rinses off any dirt or decay from the home. The cleaning agents dissolve any mold, mildew, algae, dust, dirt, spider webs, and other debris, making it easy for them to be gently washed away in the stream of soft water. With a professional cleaning team’s skilled touch, you run no risks of damaging your home while keeping your exterior in tip-top condition. Another advantage of soft washing is that entire buildings can be cleaned from ground level. A professional cleaning contractor has the expertise and equipment to spray the cleaning solution and clean water to heights of up to 50 feet from the ground. This makes the entire project take less time and produces a better and longer-lasting clean overall. No matter what the condition of your home is, soft-washing is guaranteed to provide a thorough and long-lasting shine that benefits you and your family.
