Prepping and Protecting Surfaces
Preparing your home before any improvement project is essential for obtaining high-quality, long-lasting results. Not only is it the most crucial step, but it also tends to be the most time-consuming part of the job. As experienced residential painters serving southeastern Pennsylvania, Nolan Painting strives to be the best when prepping and painting a customer’s home. Our mission is to protect surfaces, and in doing so, we might suggest to our customers that specific projects must first be power washed before we begin painting. Our home power washing services can ensure your property will look great and be in its best condition whether or not you choose to have it repainted.
Types of Power Washing Methods
Power washing removes surface materials like dirt, mud, mildew, mold, grime, and other contaminants from the exterior features of your house by using specialized equipment. At Nolan Painting, we offer two types of power washing services: pressure and soft washing.
Our pressure washing services involve using a powerful hose with high pressure and low volume. Using water and a biodegradable cleaning solution, we blast away dirt, mold, mildew, stains, and old paint. Loose paint, especially lead, is of particular concern on houses built before 1978. As a result, we thoroughly contain and clean up all paint chips. Sometimes, we might scrape the house first to remove loose paint before pressure washing. It is best to hire a skilled and experienced pressure washing company like Nolan Painting to provide this service to avoid damaging your property or exposing your family to lead paint. Due to the force of the pressure washing, we recommend applying it only to hard, exterior surfaces.
The Best Areas for Pressure Washing include:
- 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 exterior surfaces of your home can withstand 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 because it’s low pressure and high volume. The process is ideal for cleaning your home between paint jobs to keep the house looking fresh without damaging the previous paint job. The soft wash application has become the safest and most effective way to clean fungus and algae growths on various surfaces. You’ll see the best cleaning results when applied to:
- vinyl and wood siding
- masonry surfaces
We recommend using a professional, experienced power washing company like Nolan Painting to complete soft washing on your home. The cleaning solutions and dirty removal process are hazardous enough to require professional attention.
