Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered By Absolute Cleaning Services

What's The Difference Between Pressure Washing And Soft Washing?

The differences involve two primary considerations - and a few other factors: Detergents and water pressure. While standard pressure washing relies on the sheer power of the water and a spraying motion, soft washing employs the application of a mixture of water and an anti-contaminant solution. One washes away the dirt and grime, the other washes it away and cleans the surface.

How Often Should I Get My House Washed?

We recommend pressure washing at least once a year. It's dependent upon such factors as the condition of the material being treated and the impact of natural elements. Pressure washing in Portland is a crucial consideration, especially since humidity is a breeding ground for mold and mildew. This could mean a twice-per-year option might be best - spring and fall.

I Have Old, Set In Stains. Does Your Service Clean Those Up?

If you take a look at our recent jobs, you'll see before and after photos that depict just how effective our pressure washing techniques are. Just because there is a long-standing stain doesn't mean it can't be removed. Rust stains on concrete, for instance, seem like they would be impossible to remove. But the combination of proper equipment, proper detergent, and proper pressure washing technique bring positive results.

Are Your Cleaning Methods Or Chemicals Environmentally Safe?

Our anti-contaminant solutions are environmentally friendly. Absolute Cleaning Services uses only eco-friendly detergents to clean siding when house washing or shingles when roof cleaning. We also ensure the vegetation around the foundation of your home is protected when we perform our pressure washing practices.
