Not All Projects Are The Same

Freequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to wash my house?

This depends on the size of the house. A basic one level rambler will usually take under an hour while a larger two level detailed Colonial with wrap around front porch, can take 2-4 hours. 

Do you use high pressure washing?

Contrary to popular belief, high pressure washing techniques will damage your home. You can feel confident with our extensive training and experience that your house will be cleaned in a professional manner – however, we provide a “softwash” cleaning experience for your property, which is in fact much more effective and long-lasting.

Does your service use hot or cold water?

Many people believe hot water is best for cleaning, however – we actually do not use hot water for house washing. Contrary to popular belief hot water is not needed and the high temperature of the hoses [200+F] on your lawn will kill the grass where it lays. Hot water is primarily used for cleaning greasy flat surfaces and the removal of gum in commercial areas. It is also used for fleet cleaning and heavy equipment. It is not necessary for residential homes.

Are you able to remove bird's nests?

Only if there are no eggs or baby birds residing. We WILL NOT, under any circumstance, remove a nest that is occupied. If the nest is empty we are happy to remove it for you.

Do I need to be home for this service?

No you don’t need to be home, however, we ask that you read our Terms and Conditions requirements and work out payment arrangements before the scheduled service date.

Will your service kill my plants?

No our service will not kill your plants.  All In-ground hardy plants are watered down before and after any soft chemicals are applied to the house. All potted plants are removed from the work area. We do cover certain features such as fish ponds, garden plants (such as tomatoes, newly planted flowers, and roses.) When covering plants, we first rinse them with water, then we simply cover them for a short period of time while your service is being completed.

What's included in the service?

We wash all the siding from top to bottom including: eves, soffits, front covered porch, [ceiling and rails] or stoop, as well as up to 20ft of sidewalk

★ Does not include roofs, decks, driveways, sheds, detached garages, screened in porch, gazebos, furniture, patios, etc. All items can be added for a small fee.
Does your process use harsh cleaners?

It does not. We use a proprietary mix of soft chemicals that are designed to kill the mildew while also loosening cobwebs and other pollutants from the siding. Our house washing chemicals kill all mildew, unlike competitor’s products which leave microscopic mildew attached to the siding. When competitor’s take these shortcuts, it allows mildew and mold to grow back in a month or two. Keep in mind we have been doing this for nearly 20 years!

How long have you been doing this?

Atlantic Power Washing was established in October of 1998. This is our passion and we have been in business for over 20 years. Malcom Gladwell states that it take 10,000 hours to become a master of anything, and we have applied that rule to the fullest within our business for our customers.
