Hello and welcome to my cleaning blog. Cleaning can bring you a lot of joy. Without it, our homes and businesses would literally be covered in old food, dust, and garbage. My name is Penny, and in this blog, I'm going to cover cleaning techniques and tips for staying organized. Whether you are trying to wash a stain out of a shirt or keep on top of the vacuuming, I hope these posts help. I also plan to write about hiring professional cleaners for your home, office, or even your industrial facility. My hope is that this blog brings you as much joy as a clean space.

The exterior of your home is the very first thing your company will see as they pull up. This is one reason why you want to keep it looking its best. However, there are many other reasons why the exterior should be kept clean, which can be done by having it soft-washed when it needs it. Below, you will be introduced to soft washing and get to read about some of the other reasons why having the exterior soft-washed is a good thing to do. 

About soft washing for home exteriors

Sometimes, power washing is used on exterior areas of a home. However, you need to be careful with power washing because the stream can be so strong it causes damage. Soft washing will get your home looking great without the same concerns because it uses a softer touch that's still effective. Soft washing involves the use of pressurized water with a lower stream. When soft washing is done to a home's exterior, a special cleaning solution is also used in the water to help remove that more stubborn dirt, as well as stains. Soft washing helps to clean the exterior surfaces and also helps to keep the surfaces stay clean longer, thanks to the additives in the solutions. 

Some of the advantages of having your home's exterior soft-washed

Prevent mildew and mold growth — If there is mold or mildew already on the home's exterior, it can be removed by soft washing the surface. Also, the cleaning solution used can help to prevent both returning growth and new growth. 

Help the roof stay in great shape — The roof should also be soft-washed, as it can help keep it looking its best and keep it in good condition longer. Debris will be removed that can cause problems like mildew or mold growth, rotting, and other damage. 

Get the most out of your paint — When your home is dingy, it can leave it looking like it's time for a paint job. Soft washing the home can give you amazing results, and sometimes the paint will even look nice and fresh again. 


If you're looking at your home from the outside and thinking it's starting to look bad, then you might want to have it soft-washed. Now that you know more about just some things it can do for your home, you likely understand why it's a good thing to have done.
