What is Softwashing?
Simply put, Softwashing uses safe, low pressure cleaning on a micro level aided with surfactants and chemicals whereas pressure washing only cleans on a physical level using high pressure in most cases. Softwashing offers an exponential reduction in pressure, resources, noise, and can be done without harming constructed elements such as siding, wood, stucco, vinyl, roofing, windows, trim, gutters, as well as desired vegetation. Because softwashing treats the source of mold, algae, & mildew at its source, the treatment is able to actually clean many surfaces thoroughly, extending the duration before another visit is due.
How often should I get exterior cleaning work?
“Treatment Overlap” is visible when “Growth” occurs before another treatment is performed. In order to prevent this occurrence we usually recommend soft washing or pressure washing at least annually or semi-annually for most surfaces and at least quarterly for commercial applications – depending on materials and site conditions. For other services such as Window Cleaning and Gutter Cleaning you will find Treatment Overlap more frequently and usually follows the seasons, therefore requiring at least four visits annually. We recommend enrolling into one of our recurring service plans that best fits your needs in order to make your outdoor maintenance projects as hassle-free as possible.
Do we need to be home during quote/service appointment?
Generally speaking no, but please be sure that any areas that we may need access to quote/service are accessible prior to our appointment such as gates, driveways, sidewalks, locks, doors, or neighborhood gate codes.

We ask that any furniture, toys, lawn equipment, vehicles, pets, or any other items be removed prior to arrival and that all gates or screened porches remain accessible during your appointment. If possible schedule exterior cleaning prior to pine straw or mulching and edge all driveways and sidewalks to ensure consistent results. For House, Building, or Roof Washes, if possible, please run a water sprinkler cycle in your yard the night before as well as have any overgrown vegetation such as vines, grass/weeds, shrubs, or trees trimmed to allow adequate space for cleaning. For Window Cleaning, please have all screens removed prior to appointment or contact us if you would like us to add-on this service to your appointment.
