The most recent tornado that swept through Tallahassee devastated many homes and buildings. Debris-covered property needs proper cleaning and restoration—that’s where our soft washing and pressure washing services come in. Soft washing and pressure washing are essential for maintaining your home or business’s appearance, health, and infrastructure after a tornado, tropical depression, or hurricane. By understanding the appropriate applications of each method, homeowners can ensure their properties remain clean, safe, and in good condition after severe weather.

Soft washing uses low-pressure and specialized cleaning solutions to gently remove mold, mildew, algae, and other organic stains likely from bacteria buildup for roofs, siding, and other delicate surfaces. Pressure washing is best for hard surfaces like driveways, sidewalks, decks, and brick walls, as this method uses high pressure to remove stubborn dirt and grime.

Remove Debris and Dirt.

Storms like tornadoes create a literal whirlwind of debris everywhere, from leaves, twigs, and dirt to outdoor decor and signs. Pressure and soft washing rid your property of these items and the potential damage they may have caused or will cause.


Prevent the Growth of Mold and Mildew.

Mold and mildew flourish in moist environments, so the moisture accumulated by a storm is the perfect breeding ground for them. Mold and mildew pose health risks by producing toxic air quality but can also damage your property.


Protect the Home’s Foundation.

Preventing mold and mildew will protect your home’s foundation and the other dirt and debris that can rot and corrode on its exterior surfaces.


Improve your Home’s Appearance.

If your home’s curb appeal is essential to you, whether you appreciate its pristine appearance or you plan to put it on the market, pressure washing its exteriors is an optimal way to quickly restore its appearance—not to mention the fact that storm debris can stain and discolor different surfaces of your home!


Ensure Safety.

Wet leaves, algae, and other debris along your driveway, sidewalk, and other walkways can create a precarious surface susceptible to slipping accidents. Pressure washing can keep these surfaces smooth and free of safety risks.


Extend the Longevity of Your Home. 

Regular pressure and soft washing extend the longevity of your home. They mainly help if performed after a traumatic event, such as a severe storm, on your home’s exterior. The buildup of harmful substances can cause wear and tear to shingles, concrete, brick, and more.


Prevent Water Damage.

Other washing methods help to ensure that your gutters and downspouts are clear of any debris that may have clogged them, allowing the buildup of rainwater to channel freely away from the home’s foundation. This effective prevention measure eliminates the risk of water damage and flooding, providing security even in the harshest storms.

The aftermath of a harsh storm can be daunting, but with the right approach, recovery can be swift and effective. From removing debris and preventing mold growth to protecting your home’s foundation and enhancing its curb appeal, exterior cleaning is essential for post-storm recovery.
