Soft Washing Your Home for Christmas

Winter is here, and so are the jolly festivities of Christmas. The past seasons have brought winds, dust, and rainfall. That is not a Christmas look you want to give off when your friends and family come over to celebrate the holiday at your home. Make your home feel like new again with the benefits of soft washing!

  • Soft washing will give your home a makeover.

Soft pressure washing uses low-pressure jet streams to clean off any stubborn dust and grime on the structure. Once the exteriors are cleaned, your house will give a beautiful glow like a newly built structure. This method gently removes moss, algae, and other build-ups instantly, providing a long-lasting and high-quality result.

  • It helps reduce the level of allergens.

Soft washing can do wonders when it comes to cleaning your home. Dust build-up and growing mold is the reason for many allergies and can cause sneezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. Nobody wants to be sick during the holiday season. Soft washing gets rid of dust and helps reduce the level of allergens in your home.

  • Soft washing prevents damage to the structure.

Grime in the winter season can lead to tough stains and cause serious damage to your exterior surfaces. As discussed earlier, soft washing utilizes equipment with low-pressure settings to clean off any accumulated dust and grime. Low pressure will do the job without causing any harm to the structure of your home, pavement, or outdoor furniture. 

  • Your windows will be cleaner than ever.

Don’t forget to clean your windows and tackle this cleaning project with soft washing to make your windows neat and clean again. Say good bye to hard water spots, dust, and dirt with a professional soft washing session.

Can You Pressure Wash in the Rain?

Pressure Washing in the Rain

You scheduled a cleaning service with the local pressure washing company, but when the day comes around, it’s raining! What should you do now? Before you call to cancel your appointment, read this blog post for more information.

Benefits of Pressure Washing in the Rain

The answer to your question is… yes! You definitely can pressure wash in the rain. Pressure washing in light to medium rain offers two main benefits that speed up and improve the process.

  1. Rain Keeps Detergents from Drying: On hot days, the sun evaporates the water and detergent mix, leaving soap circles and stains on windows and other exterior surfaces. While professional pressure washers are trained to handle this, it is much easier for them when it rains. Since the detergent doesn’t dry up, an extra rinsing isn’t necessary, making the process much quicker.
  • Rain Allows for Greater Visibility: The sun causes glares and harsh shadows that make it difficult to see and can harm the eyes. Overcast skies eliminate these conditions, which helps washers clearly see the areas they need to clean. Many contractors prefer to work during rainy or overcast days because they don’t have to deal with eye strain and other visibility issues.

Weather Limitations

Light to medium levels of rain can make pressure washing easier and more efficient, but anything beyond that can impede the process and cause safety hazards. Heavy rains and torrential downpours can damage the equipment, while hail, snow, tornadoes, and other severe weather conditions are obviously a no-go. Thunder and lightning pose life-threatening risks for pressure washers who stand on top of buildings.

When there is a storm, many pressure washing teams will wait it out in their truck to see if it subsides. If the storm doesn’t let up, they will leave and you will have to reschedule your cleaning service.

Leave it to the Professionals

Many people who own pressure washing machines prefer to do the job themselves. However, the average, inexperienced person should never pressure wash in the rain, as it can threaten your safety. Surfaces are wet, so there is always a risk of a slip and fall accident. Also, mixing electrical equipment with rain is never a good idea. If it is raining, store your pressure washing machine in a dry, indoor location.

Call on a professional instead – pressure washing contractors undergo extensive training to learn how to handle various weather conditions. They adjust their safety measures based on the weather to ensure that everything stays safe while your home gets cleaned. For example, most pressure washers will keep their equipment inside their work trucks as they are working, so that the equipment doesn’t get damaged by the downpour.
