This homeowner reached out to us to help in power washing their brick siding house and a screened in porch that needed sanitized. We performed a low-pressure soft wash on the brick siding, windows, and any trim or vinyl areas. On areas heavy with mold, algae, and moss, we put a strong biocide treatment on the problem areas, let it sit for a while, and then used enough water pressure to dislodge the contaminants but not enough to degrade the mortar. It is important to know what tips, how much pressure, and how strong of a biocide to use on all the different surfaces around the house.
Our reason for performing a sanitization of the patio was due to small animals being bred in the patio. Various animal droppings and food crumbs were littered throughout the painted wood flooring. We used the same soft wash process that we performed on the house, but included a mild degreaser to pick up any oils and food grease. By cleaning with a biocide, we effectively killed any bacteria, parasites, and mold and then washed it down between the floorboards to be degraded by the soil underneath.
Using biocides to sanitize and wash houses safely and effectively requires extensive chemical knowledge, the proper safety equipment, as well as the machines to spray hard-to-reach areas that may not be accessible via residential-grade equipment.
