Despite popular belief, pressure washing is only to be used on hard substrates and a select few wood species. Attempting to pressure wash your home will almost always result in damage to the material. At JET Cleaning Services, we use a soft house washing process.
Soft Washing ensures a deeper, safer clean by allowing the solution to eliminate the organic staining. Then, we rinse with a high volume, low pressure system. This process is no more expensive than pressure washing but requires specific equipment and training. If you are looking to have your home cleaned, soft washing is by far the superior method.
When it comes to chemicals, we have a few different options depending on your home’s materials. Sodium hypochlorite is almost always the best solution to use when dealing with organic material on your home, like moss, mold, and mildew. This ingredient is present in household bleach and other sanitary products.
Not only is this the recommended solution by many vinyl manufactures, but it also targets the source of organic growth while not adversely affecting siding materials. Sodium percarbonate and hydroxide are often used when cleaning wood or targeting non-organic stains. We recommend not letting pets or children play right next to the house for 24 hours after cleaning the house as chemicals can remain on the ground.
Specialized Equipment to Get the Job Done Right
Although most households may own a pressure washer, our equipment is commercial grade. Most household units push 2300 psi at 1.2 GPM. Our unit runs at 3500 psi with a volume of 8 GPM and weighs approximately 900 lbs.
When it comes to cleaning homes, we do so with a soft washing process using low pressure and high volume. While household units deliver high pressure, they cannot produce the volume needed for an effective soft wash. We almost always use the water available on-site, but if you are on well supply with a low yield or reserve, we are happy to provide water at a fee.
House Washing Cost
The average house washing starts at $299. Certain variables like siding material, house size, and level of soiling affect the time and solution needed, affecting the price. Not only will our service clean your exterior and extend the life of your house, but it will also instantly increase curb appeal and value to your home.

Give us a call or send us an email. We will be happy to give you a free estimate. If you provide us with an address, we can almost always give you a price over the phone. If you would prefer we come to provide an estimate in person, we are happy to do that. Pricing depends on the square footage and siding material rather than how dirty your home is.
We are Fully Insured
JET Cleaning Services is fully licensed and insured. We like to give our clients peace of mind, so you don’t have to worry about us on your property. We are happy to send you proof of insurance before doing any work on your property.
What to Expect When We Clean Your Home
When it comes to house washing, we make sure to kill and clean all organic growth on your siding, fascia boards, soffit, and gutters. We take care to rinse all the gardens and plants around the house as well. We watch where we step so as not to crush any plant life.
We understand people are busy these days. It is not necessary for anyone to be home during the cleaning process. We ask that all windows and doors are tightly shut, and we have access to an outside spigot.
