    Why
    Aside from the obvious reason to improve the visual appeal of your home or business, keeping your exterior surfaces clean helps extend the life of surface materials, allowing you to delay repair and replacement costs to save money over the long run. Keeping exterior surfaces clean also helps slow the spread of germs and allergens around and into your home or business. If you plan to sell your home, cleaning its exterior will boost curb appeal and help you get the maximum price. Also, having dirty solar panels can reduce their energy efficiency by a whopping 40%. Finally, having a clean roof improves energy efficiency by improving its ability to reflect ultraviolet rays of light and maintaining its ability to insulate.
    Do
    Yes. Having dirty solar panels can reduce their energy efficiency by up to 40%. It’s important to have your panels cleaned at least twice a year to maximize the ROI of your solar power configuration.
    What
    We use state-of-the-art Softwash technology to clean exterior surfaces. The Softwash system, invented in 1991, uses low-pressure equipment that delivers special chemical formulations designed to kill stain-causing microorganisms at their core. The system boasts a 100% kill rate. Once the fungal spores are killed, they, along with inorganic staining materials, are gently washed away. The process also leaves behind special chemical inhibitors that slow the re-growth of fungal microorganisms, which is why Softwash results typically last 4-6 times longer than the results from old-fashioned high-pressure power washing. Click here for a more detailed overview of the Softwash system.
    Can
    No. There is absolutely no risk of property damage because the system uses a low-pressure process – we guarantee it.
    Will
    No. We only use 100% biodegradable, environmentally-friendly chemicals that are guaranteed to not harm plants, grass or vegetation. The chemicals are designed to kill fungal spores and bacteria, not plant life.
    How
    This is an impossible question to specifically answer because the duration depends on the characteristics of the property, the climate, the time of year, and the surroundings (number of trees, degree of shade, etc.). That said, Softwash results generally last 4-6 times longer than traditional power washing results because the Softwash system leaves behind special chemical inhibitors that slow the re-growth of the stain-causing organic materials.
    Does
    No. Our process works immediately to kill algae and mold spores on contact regardless of the outside temperature.
    How
    Softwash equipment uses 66% less water than traditional pressure washing equipment.
