CLH Painting uses a trailer-mounted Low-Pressure Soft Wash system when power washing your home to protect the painted surfaces.
What does Power Washing Mean for Your Home?
Traditional power washing is a combination of high pressure and temperature water used to blast away dirt and materials from outdoor materials, however soft-wash systems are the recommended method for power washing your home. Soft Wash systems work where the pressure of the water is no harder than the pressure coming out of your home’s garden hose. It’s the commercial bleach solution that does the cleaning of the house not the high pressure of the water – therefore, there is no blasting off good paint on the house. Also, there is no pushing water through windows or doors using the old school high-pressure technique.
Aside from cleaning the exterior surface of your home, power washing is also used for removing residue like salt, mildew, and mold from outdoor patios, decks, driveways, and more. It is also an extremely effective method for removing oil and grease stains sitting on driveways or garage floors.
Power washing machines can be very dangerous if they’re not used appropriately. Rather than trying to complete a power washing project by yourself, it is recommended that you hire a professional. It’s imperative to power wash an area from the appropriate distance to avoid damaging the material being washed. The commercial chemicals we use to power wash are safe and do not harm plants, foliage, grass, or your pets.
At CLH Painting, we understand that power washing is a must for getting longevity out of your home’s exterior paint. If you leave the exterior of your home dirty and grimy, your paint will more quickly degrade and be rendered less effective at sealing your home. When that happens, you may see large-scale structural damage as the wood or stone rots or erodes away under the paint.
What is Power Washing?
Low Pressure Soft Wash Power Washing is the removing of surface material including but not limited to mud, mildew, mold, dirt, grease, and excessive amounts of pollen (depending on your geographic location) from exterior features of your Raleigh home. Power washing is executed by spraying a commercial bleach in a low pressurized manner. Low Pressure soft power washing is much more effective when compared to run-of-the-mill pressure washing that uses local rental sore machines and big box store cleaners. Power washing machines can be very dangerous if they’re not used appropriately. Rather than try to complete a power washing project by yourself, it is recommended that you hire a professional. It’s imperative to power wash an area from the appropriate distance to avoid damaging the material being washed. Therefore we recommend a Soft Wash system as it almost eliminates the potential of this damage happening.
Why Do You Need Power Washing Services In Raleigh?
All exterior surfaces of a home need to be pressure washed every year to keep the painted surfaces free of mold, mildew, dirt, pollen, and debris. Mold, mildew, and dirt on a house speed up the breakdown of the paint that is on the exterior of your house. In addition, on a purely aesthetic level, it is good to have your Raleigh home’s exterior power washed yearly in the late spring to prepare for the hotter but less pollen-filled summer. This not only helps keep the exterior of your home sealed, but also guarantees that during the months when many people are outside that your house is looking fantastic.
Another use for power washing in Raleigh is preparing your home to be sold. Much like Raleigh exterior painting, pressure washing increases the curb appeal of your home and can reap outsized benefits when it comes time to get an estimate on your home. A cleaner home can look years newer than an old and dirty home, and if you combine this with an exterior painting, your house can look brand new
