Our pressure washing process includes using a special powerful hose with high pressure and low volume. Water and a biodegradable cleaning solution are used to blast away the dirt, mold, mildew, stains and loose paint. Loose paint is of a particular concern because paints chips from houses built before 1979 may have lead. We need to contain and clean up thoroughly all paint chips. So sometimes we might scrape the house first to remove the loose paint prior to pressure washing. Or we may decide to use a soft-wash method. This can be discussed with your estimator. It is best to hire a professional power washer and skilled painting company like Nolan Painting to handle the pressure washing application in order to avoid damaging you or your property. Due to the force of the pressure washing, we recommend applying it only to hard, exterior surfaces.
The Best Areas for Pressure Washing
- Concrete areas like sidewalks and pathways
Some of the more popular items we clean include but are not limited to:
- Traditional Wood, Stucco, Brick and Vinyl Siding
- Cedar Shingle Restoration
- Deck, patio and outdoor furniture maintenance and restoration
Soft washing uses low, non-destructive pressure and special nozzles combined with a biodegradable solution that removes outdoor elements, such as mold, algae, pollen, dirt, moss and other stains without damaging surfaces on your home or killing your plants.
Protective coatings on the surfaces of your exterior home were obviously made to withstand the harsh, outdoor elements. However, they can be chipped away by power washing methods like pressure washing. But with soft washing you don’t have to worry about your paint chipping. Its low pressure, high volume, process is ideal for cleaning your home in between paint jobs to keep the house looking fresh without damaging the previous paint job.
The application of soft wash has become the safest and most effective way to clean fungus and algae growths on various different surfaces. You’ll see the best clean results when applied to:
- vinyl and wood siding
- masonry surfaces
It is highly recommended that you use a professional, experienced power washing company like Nolan Painting to complete the soft washing process on your house. The cleaning solutions and dirty removal process are hazardous enough to require professional attention.
We use a special truck with mounted equipment to apply the cleaning solution. The solution consists of water and biodegradable cleaning solution. Plants are protected and rinsed with fresh water throughout the entire process.
