Your home is a sanctuary for you and your family. It protects you from the cold winter months and keeps you cool during hot summer days. Houses are designed to protect you from the extreme changes in weather. However, your home takes a lot of wear and tear in the process.

If your home’s exterior looks like it could use a thorough cleaning, you may be tempted to power-wash the surfaces to achieve an immediate difference. This classic cleaning method might not give you the lasting results you want, though. There are some things you should consider before you rent or pull out your machine.

What Pressure Should I Use to Wash My Home?

One benefit of power washers is that they are adjustable. You can change the pressure washer settings according to the surface you are targeting. Siding, concrete and brick can only handle so much pressure before the materials begin to weaken. You want the right amount of power for cleaning a surface without causing damage.

So, what pressures work best for the surfaces of your home? While there are several settings to consider, the best way to remove algae and other bacteria is to be patient. Lower settings may take longer to remove grime, but a lower power means that the slime washes away gradually and thoroughly. 

It takes more than water to efficiently wash the dirt away from your home’s surfaces, though. If you want to eliminate bacteria and algae and keep them from returning, you need reliable cleaning products. Instead of trying to figure out which detergent to use and the right amount of pressure for a power washer, trust a professional exterior cleaning company to do the job for you.

What Is Soft Washing?

A company like My Guy Services has years of experience in exterior cleaning. When you call My Guy, we will specifically recommend a procedure called soft washing.

Just as the name says, soft washing is a form of power washing that employs gentle washing pressures. We begin by lathering the dirty surfaces with eco-friendly cleaning detergents. These detergents sink deep into the grime, loosening its hold on any surface. Then, we rinse the detergent and dirt away to reveal a beautifully clean surface.

If there is some residual grime after the first rinse, we will repeat the soft washing process until the surface looks new.
