The difference between “us” and “them”:
The difference between “us and “them” is simple it’s the products and techniques that we use to clean your property with.
In the pressure washing industry there are two types of cleaning companies, they are referred to in the pressure washing industry as the “bleach” guys and the “eco-safe” guys. The “bleach” guys clean with bleach (sodium hypochlorite) based products, they use catch phrases like “soft wash” and “no-pressure” cleaning. When a home is cleaned by a “bleach guy” the average home will have the equivalent of 80-120 gallons of house hold bleach sprayed on their home and all of that bleach is going directly into the ground the surrounds your home. When bleach comes in contact with landscape vegetation it burns it dead, so the trick for a “bleach guy” is to station a person with a water hose to keep spraying fresh water over the plants and bushes to dilute the bleach and wash it off quickly before it can burn the leaves, some “bleach guys” cover the landscape plants and bushes with tarps or plastic sheeting. The “bleach guys” are good at this and when they finish the job and you don’t see and burnt leaves you think “great they did the job without damage”. Well that might be the case that day but guess what? All that bleach is now in the ground, burning all the roots, destroying all the nutrients and next year, the plants don’t bloom, the flowers grow half their size, the worms are gone, the birds don’t come back. The environmental impact is real, you’ll notice it and you won’t be happy.Read More
The “bleach guys” are also “illusionists” they make you see one thing but it’s not reality. If you were to take a white sheet and lay it on the ground, then take a black sock and lay it on top of the white sheet, you could clearly and easily see the black sock. Now take the black sock and soak it in a gallon of bleach, soon the black sock will turn white, now lay the white sock on the white sheet. It’s a lot harder to see correct? One might think the black sock is gone but it isn’t its still there it has just been “bleached”. Mold grows in different colors but usually in black or green, when bleach is sprayed over mold it becomes translucent but it is still there and guess what? When the next “blooming” season comes the mold will show up again, the mold is never removed. When the Street Appeal Pros clean mold the mold is removed completely it takes many, many years for the mold to return, a house washing by Street Appeal Pros will last 4-6 years longer than when clean by a “bleach guy”.
