Frequently Asked Soft Washing Questions - Answered By Cornerstone HydroWash

So That Black Stuff On My Roof Isn’t Just Dirt?

While dirt is undoubtedly on your roof, it's not the culprit that's blighting your rooftop. Dark black streaks that are so often seen on roofs are the cause of pesky algae known as Gloeocapsa magma. Gloeocapsa magma appears wherever there is a hard surface to cling to, moisture, and a touch of shade. It's most often seen on roof shingles, but it can appear on most external surfaces.

With a professional roof cleaning service from Cornerstone HydroWash, our experts will remove all algae, mildew, and muck that is spoiling your shingles. Your roof will look better, last longer, and enjoy increased energy efficiency with a routine maintenance service from our pressure washing services.

Do You Work With Commercial Clients?

Cornerstone HydroWash is known for its excellent residential pressure washing services in the Chesapeake Bay area. However, did you know that we also service commercial clients as well? Whether you own a small, one-room restaurant, or a sprawling industrial park, we’ve got you covered for all your pressure washing in Aberdeen needs.

How Often Should I Get My House Washed?

House washing is a necessity for any Aberdeen homeowner! You want your home to always look its best, and you can achieve that by hiring a professional pressure washing company to give it a good, thorough cleaning.

As far as frequency goes, you want to have your house washed at least once a year. Please keep in mind that a strong rainstorm doesn't count as house washing! You need water pressure to get deep into the surface to draw out the impurities. You also want to employ the use of soft washing, which involves special detergents and low water pressure to clean more delicate surfaces around your home without causing damage.

Do You Use Any Harsh Chemicals In Your Cleaning Processes?

No. We use only eco-friendly, biodegradable chemicals, and cleaning solutions. Your children and animals can play safely in the yard as soon as we're finished.

Will This Kill My Plants?

No. Our highly trained technicians pretreat and presoak the foliage before we wash and they post treat after the wash is complete. This keeps your plants safe during the washing process.
