Does your home or facility have dryvit or synthetic stucco material also know as EIFS (Exterior Insulating Finish System)? If so you may have heard that it is temperamental when it comes to cleaning. Many people ask, can dryvit be pressure washed? Some think having it pressure washed is the only way to get it clean. Having dryvit pressure washed can “clean” the surface, but this method comes with a risk. The high pressure can potentially damage the very thin layer of cement finish and compromise the overall system leading to an expensive repair. We are here to show you there is a better and safer way!
We utilize “soft washing” which is the application of specially blended detergents via a low pressure pump system. The pressure is no more than a garden hose and applies the detergents to the dryvit surface safely. The detergents do the majority of the cleaning by breaking down the dirt and mildew stuck in all the nooks and crannies of the dryvit finish. Once the detergent has dwelled on the surface and done its job, we follow up with a low pressure/ high volume rinse with water. This removes the detergent and loosened dirt from the surface leaving behind a much more thorough clean than using high pressure.
We want you to know there is a safe method for cleaning your dryvit. Our company has cleaned millions of square feet of dryvit using this very method. The result is always a very happy customer! Often we are asked if we painted the building because it makes that much of a difference!
Check out our video below and watch the process for yourself:
Another major benefit of using “soft wash” methods is cost! Price per square foot of cleaning using this “soft wash” method is much less than traditional pressure washing because it takes far less labor hours to achieve the results. Less labor hours on the job = less cost.
