Commercial Power Washing in Galveston - Too much pressure can be dangerous. EIFS, dryvit, stucco, and other similar exterior building surfaces should never been cleaned with pressure. Too much pressure can easily damage these surfaces beyond repair. In addition, pressure does very little by way of cleaning. In a short amount of time, any dirt, grime, algae or mold will be present again, or even worse than before the pressure washing took place.
As a commercial pressure washer, we have adopted a special process that involves low pressure, high volume, and quality detergents. It's called Soft Washing and it's an industry standard for Building washing in Galveston or Houston for all professional power washing companies. It’s safe enough for the most delicate surfaces, but at the same time, extremely effective in killing mold, mildew or other organic material at its source.
On our commercial cleaning accounts, we start our pressure washing service or soft washing by applying our cleaning solutions to the surface to be cleaned. It's like squirting dish detergent on dirty dishes. Our cleaning solution breaks down the dirt, grime, mold, and anything else that’s causing the surface to be dirty. After a short amount of time to allow the solution to lift the contaminants, we rinse everything from top to bottom using a low pressure/high volume spray. This leaves a completely and thoroughly clean surface rather then simply blasting the top layer of dirt off. Because the spray we use is safe enough to spray our hand with, we can assure you that it will not harm any building material.

There are a lot of reasons to select soft washing over pressure or power washing, however here are our biggest reasons:
1. Alternative to pressure washing
Power washing creates erosion and strips away materials that may have been loosened by decay or aging. It might be suitable for some tasks and not others.
2. It actually treats the infestation
Your home or business isn't just dirty – it's contaminated. Regular pressure washing simply gets rid of the outer layer of this biomass and does not fix the root of the issue, leaving your surface vulnerable again not long after power washing is completed.
3. No damage from pressure
Poorly trained or unskilled pressure washers can cause serious damage to a roof or other surfaces, specifically if it's older to begin with.
4. More sustainable cleaning option
Pressure washers utilize from 3 to 8 gallons of water per minute (gpm). In one hour of cleaning a pressure washer can use from 180 gallons upwards to 480 gallons of water. Conversely, soft washing only applies approximately 60 gallons of cleaning solution, which is comprised of about 40 gallons of water.
The cleaning solution is so powerful that it lasts 4 – 6 times longer than power washing. Making it more viable for the environment and your wallet.
