What is soft-washing?
This is how we guarantee to protect your most important investment...your home! The term "soft-washing" is exactly what it sounds like. Using lighter pressure to safely and effectively clean the exterior of your house or business. This process uses chemicals to do the heavy lifting rather than a jet stream of high-pressure water to force the dirt off.
It is particularly effective for removing mold and other stubborn stains without the worry of damaging your home. This process also provides a more complete clean, removing mold spores hiding in the tiny cracks of your siding and not just forcibly pushing off the surface layer of mold. Done incorrectly, pressure washing can seriously damage your home.
Using too much pressure you can streak, crack or dent the siding or even strip off the vinyl clear coating. If the angle is incorrect, you can trap water behind the siding or cause damage the structure underneath.
How often should I wash my house and roof?
Good question! Ideally, siding should be cleaned once to twice a year, particularly in shady or damp areas where mold and mildew thrive. If your siding is not shaded or damp, and it looks clean, you can probably reduce the frequency to once a year.
When you begin to see green mold on your house you are greatly overdue for a cleaning. Besides being unsightly on your home, if left untreated it can pose serious health risks and permanently discolor and damage your home.
Your roof should be washed once every 3 to 5 years. A good indicator that you are overdue for cleaning is the black streaks coming down your shingles. Those streaks are a shingle-damaging black bacteria called Gloeocapsa magma and can cause serious damage if left untreated.
Besides eating the lime in your shingles, slowly eating away your roof, it harbors moisture and makes a perfect home for moss to grow, further damaging your roof. A roof cleaning will generally run anywhere from 3%-5% of the cost of a complete roof replacement.

How are we so successful? We are in a unique situation. We are a family owned business with low overhead and use only industrial-grade commercial equipment, and have access to the very best pressure washing chemicals and informational resources in the industry.

Why are some companies cheaper or more expensive than us? All companies are not equal so comparing us to the lowest bidder or even the highest is not an accurate comparison. Would you trust just anyone to work on your most expensive investment, your home, for next to nothing? More importantly, would you trust him or her to put in the same level of care and take the same pride in it as you do? Ask questions when a company sends you a quote.
Are they properly trained and insured to protect your home or will they give you the run-around if they need to settle any damage caused to your home, roof or surrounding structure? Are they using the proper techniques to complete the work such as soft-washing easily damaged materials such as siding and shingles? Do they have professional equipment and the proper chemicals? Are they members of any certifying governing body or organization in the industry?
Does the technician on your property actually care if your property looks amazing? Ours do! We treat your property like it's our own and take great pride in our work!
If we are being outbid by a company with a similar process, we offer price matching plus 5% off based on the quote you receive from other companies.
Bottom line: If they beat our prices they won't even come close to our service.
