When you first see your home with the green-black mold or algae, you want it off immediately.  Often times, homeowners want to use a pressure washer on their home because it seems like a good and simple way to wash the grime and dirt off, however, it may actually cause more problems.  The paint can be ripped off, screens can be torn, and vinyl siding can be damaged, knocked off or loosened.  If your home is made of brick and mortar, that can also be damaged. This why a professional Power washing Company is needed.

The problem with Power Washing is that the pressure can blast through wood, asphalt and even concrete if close enough.  So, you’re forcing water behind the siding which could cause problems within your walls, and you wouldn’t even know until it’s too late.  It could soak the wall cavities, insulation, flooring, etc.  Then once it is inside, it’s hard to solve the problem, making an easy fix extremely difficult.

If there are any cracks or gaps, the pressure washer will find them.  Along with the damage to your home, pressure washing also increases the risk of personal injury.  Many people feel that they need to be up close and personal with the grime and dirt, so they use a ladder which often results in injury.

A strong sprayer can cause wounds that don’t seem serious but can result in infection and lead to other serious problems.  It can also injure those around you while you’re spraying.  Our soft wash process uses pressure similar to a garden hose.  And not only do we wash the house, but we also treat it as well. It’s 100% eco-friendly and will not damage your home or you!



Power washing can degrade a concrete surface.  You can notice visible damage from water pressure at the level at which even light-duty power washers can operate.  Therefore, if you aren’t careful, you can cause irreversible damage to your driveway or patio.  Also, some concrete is weaker than others, making some areas more vulnerable to developing lines, pitting or other surface imperfections, not to mention the deterioration to joints if mortar or joint sand is washed away during the process. The top reasons for pressure washing damage are using the wrong nozzle, excessive pressure, spraying too close to a concrete surface and holding the nozzle on a particular spot for too long.



If you have never used a Power Washer, you should know that there is a learning curve and that you can’t really rush the process.  You’ll probably want to start on an area that’s less visible until you get the hang of how your pressure washer works.  You’ll need to stay a consistent distance from your surface for uniform results.  If you start pressure washing further away, and then get closer, some parts of your driveway will look darker than others.  You may want to focus on one area at a time.  Power washing can become tiring, so you’ll probably need to take breaks, especially if you are working on a large area.

Homeowners power washing their concrete can often cause accidental damage, either to their home or themselves.  In addition to concrete damage, power washing horror stories include stripping paint off of houses, ripping off siding and shingles, damaging wood decks, destroying car paint jobs and even causing serious injuries.
