You name it we can do it! We use a low pressure (or soft washing) method for safe and effective cleaning.
What Is Low Pressure Washing or Soft Washing?
Low pressure washing or soft washing is performing exterior cleaning using a much lower amount of pressure than most pressure washing companies are associated with. With the tools we use the pressure coming out is no more than that of squeezing your thumb over the end of a garden hose. There are times when the high pressure method is needed to clean. This high pressure method is more commonly used on concrete and paver driveways and low pressure washing is used more for roofs and homes. Using the soft washing method prevents damage to the home’s exterior such as paint chipping, screens being shredded, vinyl siding damage or knocked loose, or water being forced through seals in doors and windows. Using the soft washing method and our specially designed soap/water mixture will give your exterior superior results.
Concrete Pressure Washing
Concrete is like a sponge and is very susceptible to an array of environmental contaminants. To rid the concrete of these contaminants we use a "Surface Cleaner". It is a concrete cleaning machine that can cover a large area, at a faster rate, and cleans more accurately than using the typical wand. This assures we get your property done in a timely manner.
We often get asked “Can you remove oil stains from my concrete?" The answer is yes, and maybe no. Many factors go into if oil can be removed from concrete. The most important factor is how long the oil has been on the concrete. Long term oil stains are almost impossible to remove completely. They can be removed enough to were only a shadow of the oil stain is visible in most cases. Another question is what type of oil is it? And finally, how porous is the concrete? With all these factors going into the removal of an oil stain, it is hard to be able to tell someone if an oil stain can be removed completely. The only true way to be able to tell if an oil stain is removable is to have us evaluate it.
Like oil stains, rust stain removal depend on many factors. What is the rust stain caused by? How porous is the concrete? Fertilizer rust stains are one of the more difficult to remove completely. Granules left on concrete from fertilizing the yard, or leaking from a potted plant can be one of the hardest rust stains out there. Most of the time these rust stains cannot be completely removed, but can be lightened to a faint shadow. Rust stains from a piece of outdoor furniture can usually be removed with no problems. The only true way to be able to tell if a rust stain is removable is to have us evaluate it.
Concrete Coatings & Design
Concrete designs are one of the hot new trends for driveways, entryways, concrete patios, concrete floors, pool decks, and more. We work with Sherwin Williams for your color choices. You can choose any color for the base coating, and can be further enhanced by decorative designs or paint chips. There are so many design options to choose from to enhance your home. The advancements in concrete tools, concrete stains and dyes, textures, and patterns have made concrete the most versatile, durable and cost-effective material on the market.
