The Importance of Professional Pressure Washing & Exterior Cleaning
Having professional exterior washing services done provides you with several benefits. First, it keeps your property free from grime, mildew, and algae. It also protects your home and your family’s health and safety. You can expect spotless results when proper cleaning solutions and equipment are used by an experienced professional. This regular preventive maintenance allows you to avoid any expensive and avoidable future repairs. Pressure washing enhances your home’s curb appeal too, which is especially beneficial when you’re selling or renting out your home. It can help you to increase your property value by up to 5%.

Pressure Washing vs. Soft Washing
Generally speaking, pressure washing relies more on pressurized water and soft washing relies heavily on chemical usage to clean. At CertaClean, we take more of a hybrid approach to these two methods. Pressure washing is highly effective at blasting dirt and grime away on resilient surfaces such as paved patios, stone, brick, concrete sidewalks, and driveways. However, using highly pressurized water on house siding, painted surfaces, wooden surfaces, etc. can potentially be damaging. For this reason, we reduce our water pressures and use safe cleaning solutions to aid in the removal of dirt, mold, and mildew on these more delicate surfaces. However, this is still far less chemical usage than soft washing. We are able to achieve this by still using moderate, non-damaging water pressure levels. This way we do not have to excessively rely on cleaning solutions to do the work for us. Which means far less solutions are being used around your family, pets, and gardens/flowers etc. For the reason, we refer to our exterior cleaning of homes as “house washing” instead of “pressure washing”.
