Would you clean your dishes with a fire hose? The idea probably seems crazy – and the same principle applies when you’re considering whether pressure washing should be used for your siding or roof.
Here’s the skinny on why pressure washing is not a good fit: It’s all in the name. This method uses up to 5,000 PSI (pounds per square inch) of water to clean a surface – and that’s a lot of pressure. While it’s a good match for concrete cleaning, it can prove to be too much force for shingles or siding and cause significant damage.
Thanks to advancements in exterior cleaning technology, there’s a better way. Carolina Power Washing is outfitted with a soft wash system that can deliver complete stain removal, mold and algae remediation, and restoration services to your roofing or siding. It achieves all of this using less than 100 PSI, which is equivalent to a garden hose. This means that it is safe and effective for all surfaces.
