For many homeowners who live in beautiful brick houses with lovely colored hues of brown or red brick, maintaining the captivating charm of their homes is beneficial to not only the curb appeal of their homes, but their homes’ overall value as well. Over time, brick can begin to look faded, dirty and present with much wear and tear. Often, when this occurs, homeowners look to power washing their homes because they think it is the best option for extending the lifespan of their home and its resale value.
Here at APro Pressure Washing, we do not recommend power washing your brick home since brick is porous and is not waterproof. This means that the bricks can easily retain water. When water is retained, the brick can become damaged and decay over time and the now distressed brick can chip and even begin to recede.
Bring Your Beautiful Brick Back to Life with Soft Washing
If your brick house is beginning to look weathered and old and has lost its curb appeal, you want to be sure that you choose an effective and sustainable means of washing your home. Soft washing is the ideal option when it comes to washing your brick house. Brick is by far one of the strongest materials for a home’s exterior on the market today. However, the team here at APro Pressure Washing wants all our valued clients to understand that though it is the strongest material, safely cleaning and washing a brick exterior is a remarkably delicate issue altogether.
Although power washing is a preferred method of washing the average home because of its ability to remove layers of elements, debris and dirt and bring the surface of a home back to life, soft washing a brick house actually targets the prime root and source of all the microbes and debris on the surface of the brick. The soft washing process involves the use of biodegradable cleaners that are able to break up the contaminants on the surface of the brick. With a rinse that is low pressure, you can easily and effectively remove the contaminants by way of safe soft washing.
