Most cleaning companies use pressure washing to clean the exterior of their home. The problem is that pressure washing blasts water at an extremely high pressure to remove dirt and stains that can cause damage to the exterior of your home, especially for softwood or aged siding. It also doesn't treat the root cause of the fungus, mold, and moss, which will simply grow back because pressure washing does not kill their spores.
Soft washing uses water at low pressures combined with specially designed solutions that are environmentally safe, yet strong enough to kill the mold, bacteria, and fungus as well as remove algae, bug nests, dirt, and grime, leaving the surfaces sanitized and completely clean. Soft washing will not harm your home's exterior and will return your home to its true beauty.
Those black stains on your roof are caused by common roof algae known as Gloeocapsa magma. This type of algae leaves spores and grime that makes your roof look dingy and old, with ugly black streaks.
Algae doesn't just make your roof look bad, it can also damage your roof's integrity. Blue-green or black algae feeds on the limestone in asphalt shingles, destroying your roof tiles and decreasing the lifespan of your roof.
Standard power washing won't get rid of the algae that are causing the stains. The high-pressure washing only removes the stains only to have them reappear because the spores weren't destroyed. Soft washing safely removes algae and mold and helps prevent them from coming back by sanitizing your roof.

Your outdoor deck is often the first place your guests see when you're entertaining. But like the rest of your home's exterior, decks are constantly exposed to the elements. Without proper care, wooden decks can rot, which is not only unsightly, but also a hazard.
We know that dirt, grime, algae, and moss are culprits in making your decks look bad, but without protection, your decks can look old and weather-worn. When we clean your deck, we use specialized solutions created specially for your deck's material. Then, we scrub the deck to remove algae, moss, dirt, and grime, followed by a low-pressure rinse with a solution that sanitizes your deck, leaving it fresh and clean.
We also provide services that sand, stain, and seal your deck to keep it looking great for years to come.
Your paver patio sees a lot of wear from foot traffic and nature. Because pavers are porous, they often absorb grime and dirt from standard use and are subject to mold, algae, and other contaminants. It's not surprising that within a few year's time, pavers can look old and uninviting.
We clean pavers carefully with solutions that are both biodegradable and eco-friendly. At this point, we recommend sealing your pavers to get the most out of them. Not only will they retain their beauty, but sealing keeps out water, dirt, algae, moss, and mold that can destroy them over time. This will keep your patio pavers looking new for more years to come.
When your backyard pavers are cleaned, it's done with a 100 percent biodegradable water-based and bleach stable cleaning solution. This will remove caked-on dirt, debris, and stains that build up in and around your pavers. When you have the experts at Gulf2Bay SoftWash perform this service, the goal is to prolong the life of your pavers and prevent breakage.
Once clean, we recommend having our techs sand and follow-up with an application of sealant to add another layer of protection. Sealing prevents wear and tear from becoming an issue and preserves the original color of your pavers. It prevents weed growth too!
