FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: WILL MY PAINT WORK OR RENDERED SURFACE BE DAMAGED FROM PRESSURE CLEANING?
A: No, At Sunshine Pressure Cleaning we use a method called soft washing. We have the latest technology in pressure cleaning equipment that has been carefully designed to allow high quality results for a range of different surfaces without damage. Using a specialised chemical tank and pump we apply the chemical to the surface and allow this to work, we then gently rinse it off using a low pressure setting. Alternatively if you are wanting your house high pressure washed we can also complete this. Many clients complete a high pressure wash down to prepare the surface for re painting.

We have experience in all roof types and have the expert knowledge on the cleaning applications required.
Q: HOW OFTEN DO YOU NEED TO PRESSURE CLEAN?
A: This is a question that I get asked a lot. The simple answer is when it appears dirty or mouldy again. We use mould inhibitors on all areas when we complete a pressure clean. Our repeat customers usually book in between 6 to 12 months for the area to be pressure cleaned again. There are many different factors that can add to an area becoming dirty and mouldy, including climate, trees and use.

Q: DOES MOULD DAMAGE PAINTWORK?
A: Yes, if not removed mould will attack any surface leaving paintwork to blister, roof tiles to oxidise, rendered walls to discolour. Mould soaks into surfaces and can ingrain in paintwork and sometimes cannot be removed if left untreated for a long period of time, getting to it early and maintaining the surface can add years to the life of the surface and prevent the need to repaint or replace. Pressure cleaning is a much more cost effective measure of maintaining a surface. Mould not only looks unsightly and can compromise the integrity of the surface but can be harmful to your health.
