General Syracuse House Washing FAQ

Why should I wash the exterior surfaces of my home?

Cleaning the exterior surfaces of your Syracuse home is good preventative maintenance. Keeping surfaces clean reduces dirt, grime, and biological growths that contribute to decay and can lead to premature weakening of surface coatings and materials.

Keeping your home’s exterior clean also adds to its curb appeal. While we often think curb appeal is only valuable when a house is put “on the market,” almost all homeowners feel it is important to live in a place they are proud to call home.

Finally, the growth of mold or mildew on decking, sidewalks, or walkways can lead to slippery surfaces that increase the risk of falls. Removing these hazardous conditions enhances the safety of your home.

But I heard that high-pressure washing can damage my home. Is that true?

The use of high pressure when washing your home’s surfaces is a mistake that can wind up costing you money. Using high pressure can do considerable damage, including:

  • High pressure marks (called scarring) on wood, concrete, pavers, bricks, etc.
  • Cracked or dislodged vinyl siding
  • Damaged stucco, Dryvit, or painted siding
  • Loss of granules in roof shingles, and potentially cracked or broken shingles
  • Excessive pressure that forces water behind siding, under shingles, etc.
  • Damage to plants and landscaping

CNY ProWash uses only the latest soft wash technology, which includes low-pressure equipment and biodegradable washing solutions that are specifically selected for the surface being washed and the type and severity of the growth on it.

I was told my house has artillery fungus. What is that and where did it come from?

If you are seeing many small blackish/brown spots on your car, home exterior, and other surfaces you may have what is called artillery fungus (Sphaerobolus stellatus). The fungus grows on wood and bark chips, as well decaying wood (such as that used in landscaping mulch). The fungus ejects spore masses for a distance, which leaves dark brown specs on surrounding surfaces.

Because the spores of the artillery fungus are extremely hardy, your Syracuse house washing contractor does not guarantee that all spores will be removed during the washing process.
