Green cleaning is becoming more popular, as more people are growing concerned with the harsh chemicals that make up typical housecleaning products. While it’s easy to find a variety of interior green cleaning products, many people are still releasing harmful chemicals into the outside air when they clean their home’s exterior. When cleaning your home’s exterior, you may think there is no harm done since the chemicals are releasing into the open air. However, chemicals in many pressure washing cleaners and other home exterior cleaners are harmful to the environment and you. When it comes to cleaning your home’s exterior, there are green cleaning solutions that are safe for you and the environment.

Pressure Washing Your Home

Green cleaning your home’s exterior is easily done using water and a pressure washer. When you use only soap, water, and a pressure washer, you are not releasing any harmful chemicals into the air. While you may think chemicals are necessary for a deeper clean, they are not. The soap used in green pressure washing gives you the same results as a chemical pressure washing. In addition, green pressure washing doesn’t strip away paint, sealants, and layers of building materials like harsher chemicals can.

Deck Cleaning

It’s easy to forget about your deck since you don’t use it throughout the whole year. When it is finally warm enough to start using your deck again, you realize how dirty it’s become, your first instinct may be to reach for the pressure washer to clean off all the mold and mildew. However, pressure washing not only wastes water but it also damages the wood. Instead of pressure washing your deck, you should be using green cleaning products to remove mold and mildew. Green cleaning companies use a solution that is gentle enough to preserve the wood but strong enough to give your deck the cleaning it deserves.

Roof Cleaning

Your roof is what protects your entire home. When it comes to roofs, there is no such thing as a small problem. Even a little leak means your roof materials are aging and decaying. Choosing the wrong cleaning solution can aggravate these issues. A cleaning solution like pressure washing can cause damage due to the chemicals. Using green cleaning solutions instead helps preserve your roof while ensuring it gets thoroughly cleaned.
