porch washingYour home is likely one of the biggest investments you will make. It’s important to take care of your home to make it last as long as possible. 

In the Asheville area, where mold and mildew are a constant issue, regular exterior soft washing can help prolong the life of your investment. Mildew, algae, and other biological growths can attack surfaces and shorten the lifespan of paint, wood, vinyl, and other finishes. 

Most paint manufacturers recommend regular exterior cleaning to help extend the life of their coating. 

While soft washing takes some money, dedication, and hard work, you save much more money in the long run than if you didn’t do maintenance. 

Soft Washing Eliminates Mold and Protects Your Home

Do not use high-powered pressure washing to clean your siding. While it’s possible, you can force water up and under the exterior surface which can damage insulation, electrical wiring, and even encourage mold growth. 

Gentle soft washing with the proper chemicals mixture can be used to give optimal results. 

At HydroClean, we offer low-pressure house cleaning, using a biodegradable solution that will kill the mold, mildew, lichen, moss, and algae from the surfaces of your home, actually cleaning it and caring for it. 

This method will also increase the amount of time you can go between cleanings since we will be killing the bacteria. 

We developed a solution for each property that is appropriate for the surfaces we are cleaning. This helps to ensure we do not damage your home’s exterior, and any plants, or shrubs during our soft washing process. 

Areas we clean include:

  • Gutters include cleaning up debris from gutters, cleaning off gutter guards, and checking and cleaning all downspouts.
  • Roofs remove unsightly black stains, algae, mildew, and moss. 
  • Concrete and driveways including older drives, sidewalks, patios, pool decks, etc. 

Remove Damaging Moss on Your Roof

Green moss on your roof can cause damage from the roots systems and affect your home’s curb appeal. The root system will work its way through the shingle and down to the plywood. 

The damage is caused after it rains when the roots are full of water and the root system has worked its way to the plywood and will transfer that water to the wood. 

The waterlogged wood plywood will start to weaken and drip water onto your drywall and over time you will start to see brown spots on your ceiling. Our job at HydroClean is to stop this damage from happening. 

If you start to see black streaks, algae, and moss give the soft wash cleaning professionals a call and we can help. 

With over 21 years of experience in the pressure washing industry, and fully insured, you can count on HydroClean for your soft washing needs. Call or contact us to discuss your areas of concern, and how we can help.
