Vancouver Siding Softwashing
Cleaning your siding shouldn’t damage it. Makes sense, right?
Still, pressure washing remains the overwhelmingly popular choice for siding cleaning in the Lower mainland.
But there’s a better way. Softwashing achieves more than pressure washing, with no risk of damage.
What is softwashing?
Softwashing is gentle cleaning process that involves a low pressure (80-100 PSI) chemical application, followed by a rinse to remove dead organics and loosened up grime. The pressure used is dramatically lower than that of a pressure washer (800-5000 PSI), and is similar to garden house pressure.
Once the chemical treatment has been applied, we let it dwell to break down any organics that may be growing on your siding. Some areas with stuborn stains or grime may need a second coat, or some gentle agitation with a soft brush.
The final step is always rinsing your siding to ensure it is not only sterilized, but free from dead organics, dirt, and grime.
Why is softwashing superior to pressure washing siding?
No siding damage. With substantially lower pressure, softwashing will not cause damage to your siding.
No water leaks. Pressure washing can push water into your home and cause expensive damage.
Longer lasting results. Softwashing gets to the root of the problem, and prevents algae from quickly returning.
