Pressure washing and staining old fence

Professional deck & wood restoration

An unfortunate fact about decks, fencing, and siding is that if they are not adequately maintained they will eventually acquire mildew, mold, fragments, and even permanent stains over time. Because wood is a porous material, it expands and contracts in response to changes in temperature.

Tannins and fungi are the most common causes. Tannins are frequently extracted from cedarwood and do not cause any problems. When tannins combine with metal and iron, a chemical reaction occurs, and a black stain may emerge. Cedar, like all other types of wood, is prone to mildew and mold growth.

With time, this expansion allows dirt and filth to work their way deep into the wood. Wood decks may also distort and deteriorate more quickly as a result of the grime. The end result is a deck or fence that is damaged to the point where you need to replace it, which we all know can be costly.

Fortunately, you can avoid all of these issues and restore the elegance of your deck, fence, or siding with gentle soft washing from the experts at ProServ Unlimited.

can you Remove Black Stains Using Soft-wash?

The ProServ Unlimited soft-wash solution has successfully removed black stains from cedar and most all other types of wood used for fencing, siding, and decks. Our soft wash solution will safely and effectively remove the stains from your wood, restoring the natural beauty of it.

Soft-wash is the only pressure washing technology that has been proven to work in practically every section of your home exterior, including cedar siding.

We clean and stain the following types of wood:

  • Beveled Cedar Shingles 
  • Cedar Shakes Cedar
  • Clapboard made of cedar
  • Tongue and Groove Cedar
  • All types of Redwood
  • Pressure treated wood

Cedar Shake Soft-washing is equally effective on your deck and fence as it is on the rest of your home's exterior. ProServ Unlimited uses environmentally safe water-based solutions to soften dirt and debris, eliminate bug colonies and webs, remove mold, fungus, and bacteria, and sanitize surfaces.

Soft washing uses a third of the water that pressure or power washing does, lasts up to six times longer, and does not break down or deteriorate the material like power washing may.

We utilize a mixture of safe, sustainable, and environmentally friendly detergents in the Soft-Wash System to ensure that the germs that cause accumulation are not only partially extinguished but wholly removed.

Soft washing your fence or deck utilizing our organic pre-treatment is similar to insect control, and a wash all rolled into one.

How we Clean Your Deck and Fence Correctly

The wood or vinyl layers of your fence should never be subjected to the high pressures used in power washing operations. High-pressure water sprayed on your fence will quickly damage the surface and produce unsightly stripe scars! We use a soft-wash for that very reason. 

Green Algae on Fences: What Causes It?

When algae, which is generally found in water, begin to accumulate rapidly on your fence, a green algal bloom occurs.

These blooms can shape warm water that travels slowly and is rich in nutrients from fertilizer and septic tank overflows. If they can thrive on your fence, it suggests there are nutrients nearby.

Exposure to high levels of green algae and toxins can cause diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and discomfort in the eyes, ears, nose, throat, and skin, as well as allergic reactions and breathing difficulties.

Green Algae on Your Fence: How to Get Rid of It

Our soft washing method employs specifically prepared mixtures that target years of mildew, grime, and dirt accumulation. We then gently rinse away 99.9% of the dirt and pollutants at almost garden hose pressure, leaving your deck spotless!

Additionally, we use environmentally friendly, biodegradable treatments to help break down impurities and infestations so they can be rinsed away rapidly. Simply put, our system leaves you with a beautiful refinished deck, fence, or siding at a lower cost to you.

Soft Washing Your Fence Has Many Advantages

There are various reasons to choose soft washing instead of power and pressure washing, but the following are the most important ones:

Power washing can damage any piece of your fence or deck that has deteriorated in any way, causing unnecessary repairs to incur.

Your deck, fence, or siding isn't just filthy; it's infected, and our expert soft washing technique addresses the infection, whereas regular power washing removes the superficial layer, but ignores the root cause.

Soft washing requires about 40 gallons of water, whereas pressure washing uses up to eight gallons per minute. Overall, our ProServ method is so effective that it lasts up to six times longer than power washing while taking half the time. This means better results and less costs for you!
