We have some extreme weather in North Carolina, and your house takes the brunt of it—whether it’s an ice storm, hurricane winds, and rains, or a hot bake in the unsufferable 90-degree-plus, humid summers. This changing climate can cause damage, of course, but it also creates a welcoming environment for organic growth of mold, mildew, and algae.
When you add in the disfiguration caused by the pollution from our urban industry and power plants, it’s not hard to see why your house and roof have trouble maintaining their bright, fresh color as they become increasingly dingy.
Beside causing cosmetic concerns to the face of your home, these microorganisms and pollutants are all potential health hazards for people living in the home.
The solution is regular washing of the exterior of the house to remove the grimy, allergen-laden buildup.
At Vortex Pro Wash, we are a family-owned pressure washing service based in Raleigh, NC. We offer a full range of pressure washing and cleaning services, including our soft washing program for residential housing. We use the newest technologies and equipment to ensure that our service is top-of-the-line and fully effective on the first try, without the need for follow-up visits. Additionally, our soft washing techniques ensure that your house does not suffer any damage in the process.
Soft washing is an industry-standard technique for washing and cleaning the exteriors of residential housing. It means that during the process of cleaning the home’s exterior, the equipment will not exceed the water pressure of 400 psi. Using higher pressure may damage the surface.
Depending on the material used on the exterior and the area that needs washing, the pressure we apply varies. Delicate surfaces often require a no-pressure technique, meaning that we only use water running from the hose, without any added pressure.
The success of soft-washing techniques lies in the cleaning solutions and technologies we use. Most of the modern cleaning solutions for house washing are powerful enough to get the job done, even at low water pressures. All of the cleaning solutions we use are free from harmful chemicals and are safe for use in homes.
Rust occurs through a natural process called oxidation. When iron gets in touch with water, it starts to react and slowly dissolve refined iron into a ginger-colored surface called rust. Rust is a natural, unrefined state of iron but does not have the structural qualities of refined iron.
For this reason, removing the rust as soon as it starts to form is essential. Rust will begin to collect on the surface of the iron construction and is easily removable without any consequences. If left untreated, however, rust will penetrate the iron construction and destroy its structural properties, making it impossible or very difficult to salvage.
Curb appeal plays several roles with regard to your house. Not only will your home look beautiful and appealing, but keeping it clean will also contribute to the overall image and perception of the neighborhood, raising the property values. Additionally, houses with excellent curb appeal tend to repel burglars and intruders because of fear of high-end security systems.
By eliminating organisms such as mold, mildew, and algae, you protect the health of your family members living under the same roof. All of these organisms, if left untreated on the house, can cause serious health issues. Regular house washing every 12 to 18 months should keep your family’s respiratory health safe.
If left untreated, pests, mold, and mildew can cause significant structural damage to your home. Expensive repairs and renovations will significantly affect the return on investment for your home and negatively affect its current value. Similarly, cleaning it up will restore your house to a pristine condition and make your house the pride of your community.
