Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered By K&S Ultra Clean Pressure Washing LLC

Is That Black Stuff On My Roof Really Not Dirt?

While there may be some dirt on your roof, the majority of the black spots you see are actually black algae, a harmful buildup that, over time, can cause expensive damage to your roof. Warm and humid climates create the best growth environments for algae, so they're fairly common in Texas. The most common type is called gloeocapsa magma, and can actually be carried via wind from rooftop to rooftop in your neighborhood. Because of this, it's incredibly important to have your roof cleaning done regularly, so that the algae doesn't spread and bring the potential of a much more expensive problem! At K&S Ultra Clean Pressure Washing LLC, we can help ensure that your roofs and gutters are clean from algae, and also prevent algae from returning.

What's The Difference Between Pressure Washing And Soft Washing?

Soft washing is a type of pressure washing that relies mostly on the cleaning solution, along with lower water pressure, to get the cleaning job done. It's best to use soft washing on softer surfaces, such as wooden decks and fences, so that further surface damage isn't leftover.

Pressure washing has a higher water pressure and is great for cleaning hard surfaces, like concrete, but can potentially leave streaks and indentations on soft surfaces, so it's best to avoid using it for your wooden decks and fences.

Do You Use Any Harsh Chemicals In Your Cleaning Processes?

We do not use any harsh chemicals in our cleaning process. Instead, we rely on the water pressure itself, as well as a signature cleaning mix, to gently lift algae, mold, weeds, and more. At K&S Ultra Clean Pressure Washing LLC, we know how harmful leftover chemicals can be for the environment, as well as your lawn, a place where your children and pets often come in contact with. That's one of the reasons why we do not use harmful chemicals for our pressure washing in Pflugerville.
