Why pressure wash a house?

Over time your house will grow some green and black filth on its surface, depending if you just like your house clean and well kept. Now with that being said  let’s say you live in an HOA that has rules and regulations most of them require for your house to stay clean, yards well kept, ect.. 

Why pressure wash a deck?

Just like your house depending on who you are, you enjoy your house being well kept and clean. Sometimes you live in an HOA where it is required to keep your house clean.

Will pressure washing remove rust?

Using high pressure will indeed lighten the stain but will not always fully remove it. Removing a rust stain requires a commercial grade chemical to really eat at the stain and pull it from whatever it’s stuck in.

Pressure washing vs soft washing

That big difference between soft wash and pressure wash is one uses a lot more pressure then the other. When you soft wash you are using little to no pressure but you are cleaning using a cleaner. Your cleaner can be anywhere from your Walmart dish soap and bleach all the way up to your commercial grade cleaners. Pressure washing will indeed do the same job but you are using pressure to remove the dirt not actually kill the organic growth on the surface of your cleaning. Can you use soap to clean with a pressure washer? Yes you can! Just add your soap and you’re ready to go.
