Pre Wash for Exterior House Painting
Pre washing for Houses
Washing a House before painting or ‘soft washing’ is a vital part of the exterior house painting process.
It removes the dirt, debris, grit, moss, mould, spiderwebs making sure the surface clean ready for painting.
We also offer Pressure washing around path and pools it removes the grease and grime but also cleans up around barbecue areas and garages.
For homes located near main roads, pre washing is great as it cleans away road dirt. Plus it is wonderful for removing the green algae on the shaded side of your home.
Failure to remove these unwanted substances adversely affects the quality and longevity of the paint job.Foreign particles can be trapped beneath the paint. Also, over time paint breaks down, oxidising to become a chalky powder. This powder should be removed before painting.
Our Pre Washing Process
We uses a solution of mild chlorine and sugar soap to wash your home. A gentle wash is best, so the solution is gently sprayed on and then thoroughly scrubbed by hand.
Then the mild chlorine solution is hosed away with fresh water. We don’t use high-pressure Gerni or Karcher spray guns for house washing as they are too harsh. High-pressure spray guns are only used for cleaning driveways.
Please note that the chlorine solution is mild enough not to damage plants. If we are at your house on a very hot day, we like to ensure your plants are watered first so they will be less likely to absorb any solution.
