Cleaning Residential Stucco Surfaces

Stucco is a beautiful material that can enhance the curb appeal of any home. It is timeless and may be seen on traditional and modern homes. However, this unique material can get dirty just like any other exterior material. Regular cleaning keeps your stucco home looking lovely. Which is why Washh offers pressure washing services to keep your home pristine.

Pressure Washing Stucco

One of the positive attributes of stucco is that it’s not a flat surface. The cavities of stucco give it a textured appearance and feel. However, it’s this unique design that makes it a challenge to keep clean. Dirt, mold and mildew and other grime can get inside those areas and cause damage if not taken care of. Some homes use stucco only for trim while brick or another material is used on the majority of the exterior. In these situations, you must know how to clean both materials without damaging either. Stucco is a delicate though durable material. High pressure cleaning can cause damage to the stucco, which is why a lower pressure is needed for washing. A professional pressure washing company will know exactly how to clean your home without causing issues. Stucco can stain just like any other material including vinyl siding, which adds an even greater challenge for cleaning. However, a professional company will know what cleaning products are safe for use on stucco and what methods will achieve the greatest results. Some stains may not be able to be entirely removed, but they can be lightened where they won’t be noticeable.

Pressure Washing Services in Charlotte, NC

Before you hire a professional pressure cleaning company for your stucco home, you want to make sure they know what they’re doing. Find out if they have experience with stucco siding or trim. Washh has many years of cleaning stucco houses, and we know the best methods to get the results you want. We use detergents that are designed specifically for use with stucco. We also use only low pressure cleaning to remove dirt, mold and mildew so it won’t damage the underlying surface. Another issue with using high pressure for cleaning stucco is it can increase the size of the cavities in the material. The result is more dirt and mold are trapped in these areas. Water can be forced behind the stucco, which will cause mold to grow in this area and damage the wall from the inside out. The wrong cleaners may contain acid which will take the color out of the stucco. The result is your house may appear faded and dull where the cleaner has been used.
