Clean Siding

CLEAN SIDING

Clean Siding is an important consideration for homes and apartments in the Houston, Texas region.  Thus, vinyl siding is plastic exterior siding that provides a nice, decorative finish to the structure.  By far, this is the most common exterior cladding for residential areas in the United States and Canada.  We often receive inquiries about providing professional service to clean siding.

Soft Wash Method

We use a soft wash approach to clean siding, because using high pressure could cause damage.  Examples include dents or bends in the surface, discoloration, and water intrusion.  Make sure you do not use high pressure on your home or apartment for clean siding.  Not only do you get clean siding from our soft wash system, you also get healthy siding.

Improves Curb Appeal

If you ever decide to sell, a clean exterior most certainly will help increase curb appeal and property value.  When regular cleaning is not employed, the siding will develop heavy stains over time.  Build up for stains like dirt, grime and mold appear subtly.  Some of those stains may not come off, depending on the age and makeup of the stain.  This is why we always suggest exterior maintenance cleanings with regularly scheduled maintenance every 1-3 years.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICE

In addition, we possess professional grade equipment plus commercial cleaning solutions.  This equipment and solutions are not available for DIY projects in local home improvement stores.  Our professional cleaning crew has been adequately trained to use the equipment.  This includes both classroom instruction and on the job training.  In fact, we provide this training for cleaning crews each month in Houston.  We have cleaning professionals from all over the country attend our monthly training events.

Clean Brick

CLEAN BRICK

If CLEAN BRICK is what you want to accomplish, you are in the right place.  Many homeowners and business owners are seeking solutions for this challenge.  From minor stains in small areas to stains that seem to touch every brick, it will not come easily.  The initial thought of most people is to simply drag out a pressure washer to clean brick that way.  However, this is definitely NOT the right answer!

PRESSURE WASHING DAMAGE

Attempting this with a pressure washing machine will result in damage.  For example, water can easily intrude or seep into the walls without your knowledge.  Missing mortar and chipped brick will also result from using a pressure washer.  There are other risks such as injury to yourself or others and damage to grass, plants and landscaping.  For these reasons, it’s important to hire a professional for brick cleaning service.

Storage facilities provide space for highly valuable articles.  Pressure Washing can result in water intrusion into the units, which may damage furniture and other precious family treasures.  Because of this, Clean and Green Solutions will always use a SOFT WASH approach.  Water will fall softly and slowly to the ground, rather than unintentionally being forced into units.  This is a highly typical mistake inexperienced cleaning contractors make when Pressure Washing Storage Facilities.

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.
