What is Exterior house washing?
Exterior House Washing does not only improve the street appeal of a property but helps maintain it. Cleaning the exterior of your house removes any moss, lichen, mould and other plant material that might damage your walls.
Exterior house washing nowadays is done by softwashing the building. A common mistake of home owners or DIY solutions is the use of high pressure cleaning that will damage the house exterior and reduce the durability and longevity of the materials.
Low pressure washes, also referred to as softwashing, is the process of washing a building by spraying it down with a light chemical solution that does the cleaning work, this is then rinsed off with fresh water. This process is significantly reduces or simply prevents any of the damage that might occur from high pressure washing.
How Softwashing increase the value of your property
Softwashes are the state of the art of exterior house cleaning. Exterior cleaning services that use high pressure washing can significantly damage the materials and the property. Softwashes use a gentle chemical solution to remove any unwanted algae, lichen and moss and don’t require pressure to remove the debris but is being rinsed off instead.
We assess every property individually to make sure to use the best possible house washing solution. Depending on the material and the type of contamination, we choose from different methods like soft washing, low pressure washing, high pressure cleaning, power washing etc.
Why is it necessary keep building exteriors clean?
One of the main reasons we do this sort of work is to maintain the appearance of houses and buildings, whether it the the presentation of an office or gym, or the preparation of a house for sale.
Private property exterior cleaning is as important as commercial building washing, as it not only maintains the appearance but also prevents damage, retains the properties value and even saves money in the long term.
The reason that may save you money, is to maintain the paintwork of your house or building. Lichen and black mould can cause a lot of damage to paint coatings. If these are removed and kept from developing on the paint, it can mean the coating will last another couple of years, sometimes more, before it will need to be repainted.
