Power Washing

Hmmm: what to do? Using high pressure to remove mildew, bacteria, algae, and other organic stains risks damaging the surface. But a soft wash may not thoroughly clean, particularly if the proper detergents are not used.

Soft washing is spraying solutions at low pressure but high volume to remove surface contaminants. The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association recommends washing with low-pressure cleaners as the preferred method for cleaning asphalt roofs to prevent damage to the shingles. For the safest and most effective removal of surface contaminants such as mold, algae, mildew, and dirt, the best method to use is a soft wash.

Pressure washing or power washing is the use of high-pressure water spray to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, and dirt from surfaces. Pressure washing is used to reduce allergies and improve appearance. A pressure washer can be used to clean gutters, roofs, decks, sidewalks, patios, driveways, siding, parking lots, cladding and windows.

Depending upon the surface to be cleaned, higher or lower pressure should be used, as well as the appropriate nozzle.
