Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Will Power Washing damage my siding?
A.We use low pressure, aka “soft washing” when power washing vinyl and aluminum sidings. This is the safest, least intrusive way to clean siding.
Q. Are the chemicals you use safe?
A. Yes, we use special cleaners to remove algae, mold and other pollutants. No damage will be done to surrounding plant life or landscaping, in fact your plants may look even better after we are done. Our chemicals are environmentally friendly and biodegradable.
Q.Will pressure washing damage my windows or force water into my home?
A. No, because we are using low pressure cleaning these dangers are limited. That being said, windows seals that are very weak or failing may experience some water entry, but this will be minimal due to our low pressure cleaning methods.
Q.Is there anything that power washing does not remove?
Yes, unfortunately there are. The 2 main things that power washing will not remove is the “white powdery” oxidation that forms over time, and whats called “artillery fungus” which are the small pin like dots that can sometimes be seen on the lower part of siding in northern Virginia. Currently there is no way to remove artillery fungus (a quick google search will pull up more info on this fungus, also known as “shotgun fungus.” For more on oxidation check out the our blog.
