House Washing Galveston - Mother nature is constantly assaulting your home. Mold, dirt and carbon stick to your house causing degradation to your aluminum or vinyl siding, stucco or wood. A pressure cleaning or a good house wash service is the solution. A2Z Wash Pros prefers to utilize landscape friendly eco-cleaners and a low pressure, high volume cleaning method when performing our house washing service.
Pressure washing a house can be dangerous. The materials used on the exterior of your home, such as brick, vinyl siding, hardiplank, stucco, dryvit, stained wood, and others are not made to withstand thousands of pounds of pressure. However, most pressure washers generate over three thousand pounds of pressure per square inch! Imagine what that could do to your home if it wasn’t used carefully.
Our pressure washing service is a much safer, more effective, way of cleaning the exterior of your home. Our house wash or soft wash cleaning method consists of very little pressure and high volume. The low pressure is safe for all building materials and the high volume allows us to perform a complete rinse. This low pressure spray is so safe we can spray our hand with it!
The Soft Washing Process: First we treat your entire house with our exterior cleaning detergent. This kills all the mold and algae and breaks down contaminates such as dirt, pollen, dust, spiderwebs, dirt daubers nest, and virtually everything else that isn’t supposed to be there. While we allow this detergent a few minutes to work, we carefully scrub areas such as your windows and window sills. Then we rinse your house from top to bottom. This gentle rinse flushes all the loose contaminates off your house, leaving your house looking as good as new. Not only will your house look clean, it will really be clean! Rather than blasting the top layer of dirt off the surface, our cleaning detergent gets into the nook and crannies and details the entire exterior of your house. It kills the mold and algae on the microscopic level and removes dirt that can’t be seen. Because of this, our Soft Washing clients notice that their home stays cleaner for a longer period of time. Many of our clients can go 24-36 months before they call us back to Soft Wash their house again.
There are a lot of reasons to select soft washing over pressure or power washing, however here are our biggest reasons:
1. Alternative to pressure washing
Power washing creates erosion and strips away materials that may have been loosened by decay or aging. It might be suitable for some tasks and not others.
2. It actually treats the infestation
Your home or business isn't just dirty – it's contaminated. Regular pressure washing simply gets rid of the outer layer of this biomass and does not fix the root of the issue, leaving your surface vulnerable again not long after power washing is completed.
3. No damage from pressure
Poorly trained or unskilled pressure washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, specifically if it's older to begin with.
4. More sustainable cleaning option
Pressure washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a pressure washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Conversely, soft washing only applies approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which is comprised of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so powerful that it lasts 4 – 6 times longer than power washing. Making it more viable for the environment and your wallet.
