House Washing Will Give Your Greater Pittsburgh Area Home A Like-New Luster

House washing

If you're a Pleasant Hills homeowner in need of a reliable house washing service, then look no further than D & L Landscaping and Exterior Cleaning.

We've been the most highly regarded landscaping and lawn maintenance company in the region for the past 17 years, but what you may not realize is that we're also true pressure washing pros as well.

From roof cleaning to concrete cleaning, we handle it all. One particular service we'd like to emphasize is our house washing package, which can help boost your residence's curb appeal.

If you're wondering whether or not to power wash your house, take an honest walk around your home – remarking any spots that look dirty or dingy. On the northern side of your home, you’ll typically find far more dirt – including things like black mold or algae growth. You'll see the discoloration on your siding, stone landscaping, asphalt, brick, etc. If you live further out in the country you’ll notice more dust and dirt coating your exterior surfaces.

As you walk around your home, take an honest look at your roof. If you see dark gray or black streaks, that's a symbol that you have algae growing which is the early stages of something far more sinister. That algae growth will eventually become lichen which attacks your roof shingle granules and lessens the lifespan of your roof. Lichen can take a 15-year roof and jump it straight to the end of its lifecycle.

As part of our house washing service, we'll clean your residence's exterior from top to bottom. This means we'll blast away grime from every nook and cranny along your roof, the siding, the doors, the windows, the stoop, and much more. Every single corner of your home deserves to look its best, which is why we do such an in-depth and thorough cleaning.

One of the most differentiating factors of soft washing and pressure washing is one using high and one using a lower pressure. Pressure washing or power washing uses water that runs at a really high PSI. Depending on the type and strength of pressure washer, the PSI can range from 1300 to 3100 PSI. Meanwhile, soft washing uses much less power than that — more sort of a strong powered hose.

Another difference is what comes out of the hose with soft washing vs pressure washing. While a pressure wash relies on the high-pressure water alone to wash properly, soft washing systems use a mixture of soaps and water to make sure your exterior stays clean for the long-term.

Exterior surfaces that may be washed using pressure or soft washing include siding, gutters, decks, concrete sidewalks and driveways, fences, retaining walls, and more. Roofs can only be cleaned using soft washing, or low pressure. There’s no real timeline for how often you would like to use these techniques to clean your exterior, and you'll usually tell just by observing it. But it's important to understand that homeowners living in rural or wooded areas may have to soft wash more often. If you want to take advantage of our house washing service, we highly recommend you contact us today.

You may be wondering about whether a whole house wash is necessary when you can just hose it down or wait for the rain. The fact of the matter is that certain grime and gunk can't be removed with low water pressure. You need to use a high level of water pressure to penetrate deep into the surfaces, and in some instances, you need to combine it with special soaps to make a huge difference (which we will discuss down below).

Don't wait too long. If you don't wash your house regularly, certain molds and mildew can actually penetrate the surface and seep into your home, potentially causing health problems for you and your family. We recommend washing your home sooner rather than later.

How Soft Washing Can Supplement Your House Washing

For certain parts of your home, regular pressure washing might be too tough, and you don't want to cause any accidental damage. That is why we employ the use of a technique known as soft washing. To do this, we turn down the water pressure and add special eco-friendly detergents to the mixture. This allows us to remove the stubborn stains and grime without harming the surfaces underneath.

Don't worry. The soaps and detergents we use are completely safe for you, your family, and the environment. After we've finished using it on your home, you and your family will be allowed outside almost immediately without having to worry about harmful effects.
