Contrary to what most people think, there are different ways to use a this kind of technique, depending on what surface you’re trying to clean. For tough surfaces, a stronger technique is fine but for softer surfaces, it’s safer to use a softer technique.
This technique is a fairly new method that’s used in order to get more delicate surfaces clean. We put a special nozzle at the end of the pressure washer and use a special environmentally friendly detergent to get the job done. The pressure that comes out of the hose in soft washing can be compared to the pressure that comes out of a garden hose. This isn’t a ton of pressure but with the detergent, it can really get things as clean as they need to be in order to get rid of contaminants and protect the surface.
This softer technique is best used for surfaces such as siding, roofs, decks, patio furniture, and other things that would be damaged if the full pressure from a pressure washer was used.
Yes! This aspect is what many of our clients in Baltimore County, MD, are concerned about, and understandably so. Our job is to not only get your surfaces clean but to educate you on our processes.
The environmentally-friendly detergent that is used does most of the heavy lifting. We use a pump sprayer to apply the detergent, and then we let it sit for a few minutes to do its job. When the detergent is done working, it’s gently washed away with contaminants, dirt, mold, moss, and any other debris that needs to be eliminated from the surface.
Harder techniques are really good methods for taking care of things like driveways and patios. Sometimes we’ll use chemicals to clean with more force but a lot of the time it’s not necessary. Unlike or softer techniques, where the detergent is the muscle behind the cleaning, this stronger technique uses the force that comes out of the nozzle to do the job.
Our technicians are highly trained and know which method to use with what surface. Sometimes pressure washing will clean well but it’s not safe for all surfaces.
When it comes to windows, we don’t believe in just blasting windows free from dirt. We take the time to make sure that your windows are completely taken care of, intact, and streak free.
It’s easy to overlook your windows, but we find that there are customers who don’t know about keeping them clean. Not only do they make your home look amazing, but they also let in more warmth and light from the sun and can reduce your energy bills!
The general answer to this question very much depends on where you’re located. The trees and vegetation that surround your home or other building play a huge part as well.
If you live in a heavily vegetated area, you may want to get your windows taken care of quarterly. If you’re not in a wooded area and don’t find that your windows get very dirty all that often, you may be able to get away with once or twice per year.
We pride ourselves on being able to help you care for your roof. Roofs are one of the least thought about areas of a home and, in turn, tend to get the least amount of attention when it comes to cleaning.
Unfortunately, when homeowners notice a problem with their roof, it’s way past just needing maintenance, and ends up costing them thousands of dollars in repairs. Instead of letting your roof rot away until you need to shell out money on a new one, give our power washing company a call, and we’ll come out and assess your roof’s condition and provide you with our master-class roof cleaning services.
Your roof is the first line of defense between your home and the elements — especially if you live in a heavily wooded area or an area that gets severe weather. It’s one of the most important structures of your home or office building, and it needs to be kept clean and free of any debris in order for it to continue protecting you from the underlying elements.
Things like dirt, debris, mold, mildew, and moss can not only create a poor-looking roof, but some of these elements, such as mold, can actually damage your shingles by pulling them up if left there for too long. Debris can also build up and keep rainwater from draining off of your roof properly. Standing water from a poor drainage system is detrimental to the health of your entire home.
Instead of living with a worn-down and unsightly roof, Baltimore County, MD, residents can turn to EcoTek for roof cleaning services that can save them from eventual property damage and high repair and replacement costs.

Before you replace the siding on your property, make sure it actually needs to be replaced due to structural damage and not a more fixable issue! Many homeowners see the condition of their siding and assume that they need to spend tons of money on a new look in order to both raise their home’s value and look great. This is especially true if you’re trying to sell.

An environmentally friendly detergent is applied, and the dirt, grime, and other debris are gently washed away, making your siding look brand new! Give us a call, and we’ll come out for a consultation to see how we can help your home or commercial building look its best!
Patios are a great place in the house for fun and family gatherings. Cookouts and get-togethers cause this area to be a pretty highly used area of your home or office building. However, because of the high usage, patios can get very dirty.
An unclean patio is not only unsightly, but it can also lead to health problems and attract pests and rodents. To combat this, we wash your patio with high pressure (in most cases) to ensure that the whole surface is cleaned.
Decks are another area of homes and even some office buildings that get a lot of use and traffic, especially during the spring and summer months when entertaining and outdoor activities are at an all-time high. Most homeowners either avoid having their patios cleaned because of the fear of damage, or they try to power wash it themselves, which can result in damage if you are not experienced in pressure washing.
We use a softer approach with a gentle detergent to make sure that the surface of your deck gets cleaned but remains undamaged. Before you try to power wash your deck on your own without having attempted this before, give us a call! The technicians at EcoTek are highly trained to know what chemicals, pressure, and cleaning distances are safe.
After parking on and driving over your driveway for a period of time, they can get worn and very dirty. Vehicle stains and stains from other uses can make your driveway look dingy and desperately in need of a good cleaning.
Aesthetics is definitely a concern, but another thing to think about is function. Because driveways are a high-usage area, they also take a physical beating. Unfortunately, contaminants sitting on the pavement over time can weaken your driveway and lead to cracking, discoloration, and other deterioration.
When cleaning your driveway, we understand that special considerations must be taken on different substances. Using the wrong chemicals and techniques can lead to discoloration, which is why we do not recommend pressure washing your driveway on your own. EcoTek has the equipment and expertise to make your driveway shine!
