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.
