Labor Panes’ Soft Wash Method and Its Benefits
Learn About Our Special Soft Wash Equipment
Commonly found on shingles and sidings of a home, algae and grime can cause unsightly staining. This stubborn staining can be very difficult to remove and often times requires a professional. Labor Panes’ soft wash method is designed to safely remove algae and dirt buildup from siding like vinyl, stucco, hardiplank, painted wood, cement, and more.
Soft washing is a cleaning method that uses low pressure and specialized solutions to remove bacteria, algae, and mildew from roofs and other exterior home surfaces. Our soft wash method kills the grime and has a surfactant that allows it to cling to the surface long enough to be effective. Our team uses specialized soft wash equipment like nozzles to apply the solution. These nozzles can spray solution up to 30 feet in the air. This allows us to clean most homes while standing on the ground, even up to 3 stories high. Our soft wash method allows the project to be done safely and limits the need for ladders or equipment coming in contact with the house.
What to Expect from Labor Panes' Soft Wash Service
When Labor Panes arrives at your home, we make sure the surrounding areas have been cleared of anything that could be damaged or interfere with the cleaning. This could include any outdoor electronics, potted plants, or decorations like wreaths.
Our soft wash method is a two step process, first applying the solution, then rinsing the solution. We will typically apply the solution to one side or area of a house at a time and then go back and rinse. The solution will be “working” for up to 5-10 minutes, then is thoroughly rinsed off. For siding with extremely built up grime or mildew, a second application may be needed. For most homes, our soft wash service can be completed in less than 2 hours.
Benefits of Soft Washing
Soft washing is incredibly beneficial to your home and can extend the longevity of stained or painted wood. Many people think their home needs new paint, but often times a soft wash reveals that the paint was in good condition, just very dirty. Some stains, like clay or rust, may lighten but are unlikely to be fully removed during the process, painting is recommended in those cases. Some additional benefits of soft washing include:
- Removes unwanted dirt and stains from home to increase curb appeal
- Eliminates harmful grime from outside of your home
- Prevents long-term damage to your home caused by dirt or mildew buildup
Whether you’re looking to improve the curb appeal of your home or remove stubborn staining on your roof, our soft wash method is incredibly effective, safe, and beneficial.
