We provide superior home washing services along the Hudson so you always know that your home is in capable and competent hands.
A Fresh Start
Having your home washed at least twice a year is an important part of home maintenance. It is the quickest way to improve your property’s curb appeal, which can elevate the appearance of your entire neighborhood. Routine home washing can also increase the longevity of your home’s external surfaces. It can clear away accumulated dirt, grime, and even mildew and mold.
Mold and mildew present serious challenges to a home’s structural integrity and to the health of the home’s inhabitants if the insidious microbes are not taken care of early on. They can eat away at siding or wood, and they inspire respiratory issues like asthma. Cleaning such pests off of your home quickly and regularly is an important part of keeping your home a safe place.
Routine house washing is also an impressive way to keep your siding in healthy condition. When done properly, a deep clean is a powerful way to remove dirt, debris, and grime from vinyl siding, wood siding (painted and stained), stucco, brick, aluminum, and steel siding. When performed regularly, it can also prevent staining. Additionally, home washing is an important precursor to painting your property.
The Trouble with Siding
While cleaning your home’s siding on a regular basis is undoubtedly a good idea, that good idea can quickly become a very poor one if it is not performed properly. Siding should never be power- or pressure washed because doing so can force highly pressurized water up underneath the siding. This is problematic in two ways: it can pry siding panels right off of a building, leaving the wood underneath exposed to the elements, or that water can become embedded between the siding and wall where it creates a cozy breeding ground for mold.
The best method for cleaning the exterior surfaces of a home is soft washing. This method uses dramatically lower pressure levels than traditional pressure washing (175 psi as opposed to 4,000+ psi), and an entirely different system when performed professionally. The detergents used are also gentler on siding materials.
The soft wash home washing process requires finesse so as not to damage your home’s siding or stucco. If the pressure is too low, you’ll just get the house wet without actually clearing away any dirt or grime. If it is too high, you can score, dislodge, or circumvent siding panels, damaging the home. The best way to find the perfect sweet spot is to employ an experienced professional home washing team.
