PRESSURE CLEANING STUCCO

PRESSURE CLEANING STUCCO

Many people have questions about PRESSURE CLEANING STUCCO.  Stucco refers to a fine plaster used for coating wall surfaces.  It can also refer to sculptural and artistic material in architecture.  Stucco covers less visually appealing surfaces like concrete or metal.  It is a very porous material and often has a textured surface.  The porous nature of stucco is what results in heavy staining.  And the fact that it is textured means that high quantities of dirt and grime find a home in stucco rather quickly and easily.  This is why PRESSURE CLEANING STUCCO is so important to understand.

COMMON MISTAKES

One of the biggest mistakes people make is trying to repair cracks in stucco before cleaning the surface.  Another mistake we see is that people try to use pressure washing or power washing to cleaning stucco.  We have seen many things go wrong with the PRESSURE CLEANING STUCCO method.  This includes chipping paint and creating more cracks, along with water intrusion where stucco becomes trim, windows and doors.  In addition, mold and mildew spores are left behind.  This is why the stains reappear again rather quickly.

THE SOFT WASH SOLUTION

At Clean and Green Solutions, we have over twenty five years of experience cleaning stucco.  We use a SOFT WASH approach to cleaning this surface so that no damage occurs to the structure.  In fact, we have always recommended SOFT WASH for ALL vertical surfaces of homes and buildings. Soft Washing is a procedural process which effectively utilizes a cleaning detergent, along with a cold water rinse to remove dead algae and other stains.  This reduces the risk of damage to your home through surface deterioration of high pressure cleaning, and ensures the surface stays clean much longer.  This is because all mold and mildew spores are immediately killed.

Clean and Green Solutions is proudly certified through the UAMCC. In addition, we are a trusted pro with Tom Tynan’s Home Show Radio. Call or text 281-883-8470 for a free estimate for soft washing your stucco surface.

EVALUATING PRESSURE WASHING COMPANIES

EVALUATING PRESSURE WASHING COMPANIES

You might be getting ready to hire an exterior cleaning service for your home or business. So EVALUATING PRESSURE WASHING COMPANIES is an important part of the decision making process. This is because much is at stake when it comes to the professional exterior cleaning industry. The most common risk factors are damage to your property, and using an inexpensive provider that leaves you very dissatisfied. And as is the case with most financial decisions, cheaper is usually not better. So the old adage “you get what you pay for” applies to pressure washing service providers.

FIVE IMPORTANT FACTORS

ARE THEY INSURED?

This is an important question for two reasons. First, their insurance will cover any incidental property damage caused. Some common examples include water intrusion into the building, surface discoloration, and killing plant life. And second, it provides coverage for any accidents or injuries occurring on the job. Here is where you can find more pertinent information regarding insurance.

ARE THEY CERTIFIED?  

Technicians need professional training with certification before they are able to clean properly. In addition, there are local, state, and federal requirements they must abide by. Training is necessary to operate professional equipment effectively and safely. Different surfaces require different cleaning methods. Clean and Green Solutions is proudly certified through the UAMCC.

ARE THEY EXPERIENCED?  

We have over twenty five years of experience in the industry. The owner is past President of the UAMCC and provides extensive training for pressure washing starts ups. We accomplish through local and regional training events, as well as online video instruction. Take a careful look at the about us section to assess experience.

ARE THEY EQUIPPED?  

Professional pressure washing equipment is vital. Concrete scrubbers, soft wash kits, and dozens of specialized cleaning agents are critical for complete removal of stains. Rust, grease, and graffiti and just a few examples that water pressure alone can never remove.

ARE THEY RESPONSIVE?  

You will want to consider how promptly they return phone calls and emails. It’s not a good sign when it takes multiple attempts to get in touch. Clean and Green Solutions even uses texting to communicate effectively with customers. We schedule all projects regardless of size, and follow through on our word. We strive to make the process as easy and as smooth for our customers as we can.
