Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered By Atlantis Pressure Cleaning

While both pressure washing and soft washing are effective exterior cleaning methods, they aren't meant to be used for the same surfaces. Pressure washing is a process that uses highly-pressurized, sometimes heated, water spray to power through tough stains, buildups, and organic matter on hard surfaces like driveways, sidewalks, and other concrete fixtures. Pressure washing works effectively on these surfaces thanks to its strong application, but it's much too harsh for breakable exteriors like windows or softer ones like roofs and siding. For these fixtures, soft washing is the appropriate method. Instead of using high-pressure water spray to remove stains and buildups, soft washing relies on chemical cleaning agents and mild water application to achieve the same result in a much gentler manner. If you're unsure which method to use for a particular surface, then you can always reach out to Atlantis Pressure Cleaning. We'll immediately be able to recommend the appropriate type of cleaning for any exterior, and we'll take care of the job for you quickly and affordably.

Concrete is a durable material, but it's not totally impervious to damage. Things like sun fading, cracking, and spalling can all occur and take a big toll on the look and longevity of your concrete installations. That's why you should prioritize concrete cleaning and sealing. Cleaning services remove corrosive toxins like mold and algae from your concrete surfaces, so they don't cause premature disintegration. Paver sealing then coats your concrete in a protective substance that acts as a barrier to the elements and helps prevent damage. Investing in concrete cleaning and sealing not only keeps your home's hard surfaces looking great but also helps ensure their longevity.

There is no one answer to this question as house washing needs vary from home to home. We generally recommend a house washing service at least 1-2 times a year. However, things like storms, mold growth, or allergen buildup may warrant an extra cleaning throughout the year. The best way to determine when it's time for a house washing is to monitor the buildup on your exteriors and schedule a cleaning when you notice your exteriors getting dingy and discolored.

High-pressure water spray can be too harsh for wooden installations like decks and wood or vinyl fencing. For these exteriors, we recommend that only soft wash cleaning be used. Soft washing delivers all the same cleaning benefits as traditional pressure washing without the harsh water spray that can damage these more delicate exteriors.
