Timber & Fencing Cleaning in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud and The Cotswolds
Wooden features such as decking and fencing are a great contribution to the exterior appearance of your property. Timber is a solid structure that has been used for construction as long as the Earth has been around.
Often we use treated timber to make our structures last longer. However, timber that is exposed to the outdoor elements constantly will become damaged, moulded, dirty and mildewed. This can cause the timber to rot faster and become slippery and dangerous if on ground level
An assessment of the type of timber and its location will determine the correct blend or indeed chemical to be used. This will ensure no damage to the structure of the timber.
High pressure will often damage the fibres of the timber and increase the ageing effect and reduce weather resistance. Sometimes a very light pass at low pressure may be used to remove a heavy build up before the soft washing.
Pressure washing is using high pressure water to remove dirt, mould, algae, lichen, moss, and other contaminants from the surface. It does have a place in cleaning as it will give you quick results that look good, however, they may last for a short period of time, or when used incorrectly do irreparable damage.
We offer pressure washing when we think it is suitable or sometimes it is used in conjunction with soft washing when needed.
