[OVERVIEW] Soft Washing vs. Power Washing

Posted by on Jun 16, 2015 in Maintenance | 0 comments

soft washer or power washerIt’s very important to clean your home’s exterior and interior on a regular basis. I always wondered why people hired professional services when they could do it on their own. When I researched further hiring professional services became clear. Since then, even I have started hiring professional services for the job. A lot of people don’t understand the difference between soft and power washing. In this post, I’ve explained the differences between these kinds washing properly.

The most important benefits of having your home’s exterior professional cleaned are longevity. When you hire a professional company, the wash system lasts for a very long time. A professional company makes sure water, mildew, mold or dirt isn’t just pushed under the sidings or soffits. For example, VT Mobile, the company that does power washing in houston, texas ensures that this is the case for their valued customers – something that I wouldn’t be able to do as a novice.

There’s also no damage to window seals, siding, shrubs, bushes or screens. An advanced pressure-less washing system even eliminates the risk of suffering from a personal injury. A professional company makes sure the job is performed right the first time. This saves a lot of your money.

What are the Differences Between Soft Washing and Power Washing?

One of the most important differences between soft and power washing is that a soft washing system does not damage your house. Therefore, your house stays clean for a longer time. On the other hand, pressure washing increases the risk of damaging your windows, seals and siding around windows and other areas of your home. When a house is a power washed, screens need to be removed. With a soft wash system, screen removal isn’t required.

Which Kind of Washing is More Effective?

A pressure-less or soft wash system is considered to be more effective. A soft wash system proves to be more effective in the long run. Since the excess pressure has been eliminated, washers can’t blast away at your home’s siding. It’s worth mentioning that pressure washing only eliminates excretions but spreads various spots around the siding, on the foundation, under the siding and in every corner.

Due to this, about a year later the black mildew and green mold come back. In most cases, the condition can get worse. With a soft wash system, professionals can kill the spores with commercial grade solutions. A soft wash system doesn’t spread the spores or blasts off excretions. When spores are killed, it takes a minimum of three years before the black and green molds come back. Although power washing can be used in the exterior of your home, it should never be carried out inside your home.

How Often Should Pressure or Power Washing Be Done?

As mentioned earlier, power washing should never be carried out inside a home. With a soft wash system, a house with vinyl or aluminum siding will remain clean for a minimum of three years. Stained or painted wood siding is always more porous. Therefore, the cedar/wood requires a lot more attention. Thus, they need to be washed thoroughly every 18 months. When a home with cedar/wood siding is washed thoroughly with a soft wash system every 18 months, stain or paint lasts longer.

Important Considerations for Exterior and Roof Washing

It’s important to understand that roof washing is considered to be preventive maintenance. Roof maintenance is not done in a single day. When your roof is chemically cleaned, or power washed in a single day, there’s a possibility of some damage. In most cases, roof shingles are tar and sand pebbles. Excess pressure can expose the tar after removing the sand. Chemicals can also damage the roof. Overall, soft washing is considered to be more effective, and an ideal solution for cleaning your home. Power washing should be confined to exterior areas, such as a garage, driveway, pathway and more. An interesting case study is out done for Pressure Washing Humble, Texas – VT Mobile is able to preform power washing for roof washing without the need for soft washing – check them out for more information.

To wash the roof to eliminate any damage, the roof should be washed slowly over time, on a maintenance plan. With cleaning siding, many people still believe that power washing is the only way to get the siding clean. Actually pressure-less house washing, gets the siding clean because the system kills all the spores.

Why Should You Hire Professionals?

While most homeowners try to clean driveways, garages, drainages and other areas on their own, there are some smart homeowners who hire professional washers. A professional washing service also proves to be the best option. Although it may be a bit more expensive than a DIY job, the benefits of hiring a professional service still outweigh the cost.

Better Results – Just like professional washers can bring a shine to any vehicle, a professional washing service can leave your home looking much better than you could ever imagine. Most homeowners use just a damp cloth with some soap to wash different areas in their homes. However, if your compare the equipment and cleaning solutions used by professional washers, you’ll be able to understand why they can provide better results. Just like in our above Houston example, VT Mobile Pressure Washing Sugar Land gets these kind of results.

No Cut Corners – For most homeowners, the time to clean and wash different areas means sacrificing other productive or entertaining tasks that could be enjoyed with friends and family members. While some adamant DIY handlers may waste their weekend on cleaning and washing, most people choose to have some fun and get involved in other activities. To save some time, people try to cut corners and finish the job quickly.

However, a professional washing service will never cut any corners. Cleaners will give their 100% to clean your home thoroughly and properly. They make sure every part of your home looks perfectly clean and shiny. This leaves every area in your home spotless and clear as new.

Inexpensive – Contrary to the common notion, a professional washing service proves to be inexpensive and affordable. Although you will be spending a bit more than a DIY project, it will still save you money in case of damages and purchases of expensive cleaning solutions. When you consider the cost of static-free rags, ladders, cleaning solutions, extension poles, squeegees and other essential equipment, it can make the additional cost of a professional washing service understandable.

After explaining all the benefits you receive from a professional washing service, it becomes a lot easier to say that investing in a professional service is the best option for every homeowner. Moreover, when you consider the time and energy you will be saving, it becomes quite obvious.

Importance of Better Business Bureau

Posted by on Jan 28, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Often, we go around and go shopping around at difference businesses, you will see a few businesses that has a Better Business Bureau sticker on one of their windows, or somewhere on the company’s website. The labeling means that company is a part of the Better Business Bureau, also known as the BBB. The BBB has an active participation in the quality assurance program that many different companies use. What does the BBB do? The Better Business Bureau handles complaints from consumers when they have an issue with the way a company handles their business. When you go and look into the Better Business Bureau’s website, you will be able to search and find a list of companies and the list of the complaints against the company. This is one of the best tools out there that a customer can use; the BBBs website has the ability to help you decide which company to use when it comes time to choosing between two different companies.
A huge advantage for a user for often uses the Better Business Bureau is that those customers have the ability to see the details about how the company responds to the complaints. The BBB’s website will give you the list of how many complaints have been listed against the company, what each complaint is generally about, and about how the company responded to the complaint. If you identify a company that has a long list of complaints that have gone unresolved, then you will be able to make the smart decision and decide to not go and do company with that company. The Better Business Bureau also has a warning section that has a section where they warn customers to avoid specific companies that have developed a negative reputation for being a negative company.
