Pressure washing can be used for an array of jobs. Most commonly pressure washing is utilized to clean tough stains and contaminants such as mold, mildew, and other build-ups. Pressure washing has the ability to remove mold, but does pressure washing kill mold?
Does pressure washing kill mold?
Mold and mildew typically affect damp and shady areas such as wooden decks and driveways. Mold must be targeted from the root to completely eliminate it and ensure that it does not return.
Traditional mold removal methods involve manual scrubbing with bleach and multiple cleaning sessions to kill the mold which is tedious, time-consuming, and expensive. Pressure washing is an effective cleaning method that utilizes a pressurized stream of water to remove contaminants. Pressure washing effectively cleans small and large areas. Mold is sprayed with a pressure washer before soaking in a cleaning/bleach solution and being washed off. Thus, killing the mold in its tracks and preventing it from spreading further!
The benefits of pressure washing for the removal of outdoor contaminants are vast:
- Water – Pressure washing saves between 50% and 70% of water, compared to standard hoses which use more water.
- Time – Pressure washing saves time and effort because the water pressure is strong enough to wash away most contaminants, such as mold.
- Versatility – Pressure washers can be filled with various cleaning solutions and detergents, including bleach solutions which are crucial for effective mold and mildew removal.
- Costs – The time, effort, and water usage that pressure washing saves results in money saved and helps prevent future costly damages caused by mold or mildew.
