Why You Need Columbia Brothers Power Washing
Did you just buy your home or property?
Have you owned your home or property for more than 5 years?
Are you trying to sell your home?
There’s a high chance that a yes to any of those questions means your homes exterior needs a good bath.
It could be your roof has black streaks or mold on it. Or you know your siding is supposed to be white, but instead it’s looking a little green.
That would be a curb appeal fail.
Real estate companies know that your home or property will sell much faster, and at a higher price, if the exterior is looking it’s best.
If any of that sounds familiar to you, then you need Columbia Brothers Power Washing.
Other companies may try to sell you on services you don’t need, but we won’t.
Sure, we may suggest something if we notice it, but if you tell us you need to wait and have your pool deck area power washed closer to pool season, we get that. Money is tight these days, we won’t push it.
So, don’t want to waste your weekend off figuring out how to go about soft washing your house. Take your hard earned weekend and enjoy yourself. We got this.

Soft Wash House Washing
This method of cleaning is also sometimes called low pressure cleaning. It is an effective cleaning method commonly used by power washing companies in Columbia. It cleans your home’s vinyl siding or roof shingles without the risk of property damage. Just because it’s called soft, doesn’t make it a less effective method of cleaning.
Why We Use Soft Wash House Cleaning
The idea of soft wash house washing sometimes confuses people.
They say, you guys are a pressure washing company! Doesn’t that mean you use high pressure to clean everything?!
The most honest answer we can give is that, yes, we are a pressure washing company, but that just means that we know how much pressure is best for the material we are cleaning.
For example, would you rinse your dirty dishes with the same high pressure nozzle that you would rinse bug guts and road grime off your car?
Okay, maybe you would if you’re a young single guy that hasn’t washed his dishes in a month…. but the normal answer should be, no, of course not!
That’s because a pressure that is too high for your dishes, could actually damage them.
The same principle applies with what we do. You need a much higher pressure to clean a concrete surface than you would the vinyl siding of your home.
Less experienced companies are still trying to figure out which pressure is best for which surface. Don’t risk your property being their guinea pig. It’s called trial and error for a reason….
Our power washing company has being doing this for years, so we have mastered the techniques, pressures, and nozzles needed to get each and every job done right.
It’s our job to make sure that none of your property is damaged. Which is why our soft wash house washing techniques are so crucial.
How We Soft Wash a House
The first step is to determine what material your home is made of. In most cases, we can tell just by looking, but there may be times when we ask the property owner to verify if they can.
We use a combination of low pressure and environmentally safe detergents to ensure that your property’s exterior is the color it was meant to be. No more green-colored house always makes the wife happy.
Pressure Cleaning Brick Exteriors
Many homes in Columbia have used brick in some or all of their property’s exterior. Like we mentioned before, it’s our job as professional pressure washers to know which pressure is best for the materials we are asked to clean.
Our policy is that we start with a lower pressure, similar to our soft washing method, to see if it is effective. If more pressure is needed, we slowly increase it while monitoring the effect on the brick.
When considering a soft wash house washing or even a roof cleaning, we recommend thinking about window cleaning as well.
A construction worker makes dust, a cook makes a messy kitchen, and power washers get windows wet. It’s just a by product of power washing.
If your goal is to increase your curb appeal and / or sell your property then window cleaning and power washing should go together like peanut butter and jelly.
Clean, shiny windows really adds the extra touch and will go a long way in making people admire your home.
Just be sure to warn the family and friends that you have had the windows cleaned…
We wouldn’t want any of them to walk into the glass because they can’t tell it’s there…
How Often To Have Your Windows Cleaned
We always recommend having your windows cleaned after having your home’s roof or exterior power washed. Aside from that those times, the answer depends on what type of property you have.
For a commercial property we recommend every 2 weeks to once a month. This gives your customers the sense that you are a well-established company that’s serious about keeping up appearances.
For our residential customers that just want a general maintenance clean, we can come out once a year. After that it is up to each homeowner’s preference. Some love having us come twice a year, while others insist on us coming quarterly. Columbia Brothers Power Washing is happy to come out as often as you’d like.
Did you know that gutter cleaning should be done at least once a year? If not, your property becomes at risk for water damage to the interior or exterior. Clogged gutters can also become an attractive place for unwanted pests to make their home.
For a variety of reasons, many have a hard time cleaning their gutters regularly.
Here’s the most common reasons we’ve seen:
- Owners forget about them – out of sight, out of mind
- Owners don’t want to risk falling off a ladder
- Owners don’t have a ladder tall enough
- Owners can’t remember the last time the gutters were cleaned
We understand all of these reasons. Because of this, we offer full service gutter cleaning throughout all of Columbia, Maryland. We have the equipment we need to get the job done quickly and safely.
Why Gutter Cleaning is Important
Gutters serve as a drainage system for your property. When that drainage system gets clogged, bad things can start to happen. A leaky roof is the most common issue. Thousands of dollars in roof repair can be avoided with regular gutter cleaning maintenance.
Save your time and your back – call us to get your gutters cleaned out!
How Often Should Your Gutters Be Cleaned
This answer will depend primarily on how many trees you have near your home or building. Some areas of Columbia, Maryland are okay with only having us come out once a year. Other areas have more pine trees close to their building and need us 2 or 3 times a year. If you’re not sure, we would be happy to assess your specific need.
Wood Deck Restore
Having a wood deck or patio is a beautiful thing. Some consider it an extension of their home. But if your deck is more than a year old, it probably needs a good bath. The dirt, debris, and grime that builds up on a deck often leaves it looking, well, dirty and unappealing. If it’s been several years, the deck will start to look aged.
Our deck restore services can help make your deck look like new again. The combination of experience, the right environmentally friendly detergents, and the right pressure with the pressurized hose can get it looking it’s best.
Why We Use Detergent When Cleaning a Wood Deck
With wooden decks it is important that the least amount of pressure is used as possible. Most new power washers don’t know this and will start with too high of a PSI.
That mistake can actually damage the wood. Our job is to restore the deck, not damage it. By using a specialized detergent we are able to loosen embedded dirt. This step allows us to get your deck as clean as possible while still using a low pressure.
If you have a concrete driveway, walkway, patio, deck, or pool area you have probably noticed it gets dirty. There’s not much you can do to keep it from starting to look like the weather has given it a beating. After we’re finished though, you’ll want to show all the neighbors.
Our Concrete Cleaning Process for Driveways
What happens to driveways over time? They get nasty! Cars tend to leak fluids over time. Most of these fluids will create stains on your driveway. We know how to get those out too. Below is our process for cleaning most driveways:
- After finalizing with you about what areas you would like us to focus on, we begin by removing any larger debris from the surface. This could include things like branches, leaves, and bugs.
- We take special care to make sure that the surrounding areas of your home are protected or distanced. This could include moving patio furniture or potted plants.
- Depending on the area, we may apply a degreaser to help break up any oils that may have built up. This is often needed on concrete driveways if you park your vehicles there.
- We will then apply a detergent to the area to help break up the dirt and grime.
- Using the correct amount of pressure we will clean away the detergent, leaving your concrete looking like concrete again.
- If you would like, we can apply a waterproof concrete sealant to help protect the newly cleaned surface. This helps keep the area clean longer.
Our Process for Pool Areas
The best part about living in Columbia is that once winter is over, summer comes and we get to enjoy being outside again. With our concrete cleaning services for pool areas and other outside living areas we can take care of the cleaning while you focus on the fun stuff.
When power washing a pool area we like to take extra steps to help keep your pool clean.
Our process is similar to how we clean driveways, but not entirely the same. You wouldn’t want the detergents and degreaser we use to end up in your pool would you?
Some companies don’t care if your pool is dirtier when they leave. But we do. Not sure how we do it? We’d be happy to show you our secret once we get there!
