What’s Growing On My Roof & Siding?
Mold, mildew and algae make up the majority of stains found on homes. Rust, lime or clay stains represent non-living stains. Both stains can be approached in a soft wash manner. Our exclusive soft-wash cleaning process that eliminates the need for aggressive high pressure allowing for stain removal effectively and completely.
Most homes are stained by living matter such as moss, green algae, lichen and more. Anything less than a full sanitizing treatment may leave residue allowing the stain to regenerate rather quickly.
Although todays cleaning equipment have improved not long aggressive pressure washing was the only game in town. In contrast to todays “soft wash” revolution earlier methods relied exclusively on “pressure” or “psi”.
Old school pressure washers never used detergent. Imagine never using a sanitizing product to clean your kitchen/eating area. In light of pure sterilization a disinfecting product will create sterilization. Bleach-based detergents leave behind no residual toxicity and biodegrades back to sodium chloride (table salt).
Not only will the stain effectively disappear, it will stay clean longer. Mold and algae can regenerate if there is any residue left behind. Solving the underlying issue is pertinent to creating a sterile clean environment.
Why Are We Different?
Our experience sets us apart and dates back to the early 90’s. Most companies still in business since the 90’s have learned hard Knox lessons on cleaning. Cleaning schools did not exist (until now) and the internet was no where in site and manufactures never give solid answer on what product suits best in the manner of the surface at hand.
Most pressure washing companies in New Jersey would use high pressure to blast every stain. The need for high pressure is no longer necessary since the inventions of proper detergents.
In comparison to other home services such as plumbing or electrical service, there is no trade school to learn to clean. Most can buy a pressure washer and learn by trial and error. With 20+ years cleaning experience we know all of the pitfalls.

I will agree most anyone can effectively shoot water without incident. In a manner of speaking we have seen it all after cleaning more than 20,000 home units. If it could go wrong it did. There was no internet to lean on. The early 90’s was a special time for the cleaning trade.
In spite of the early struggles hard earned experience accumulated. Without particularly noticing we’ve grown into one the leading cleaning contractors in New Jersey. We have the resources to handle the local community needs as well as large HOA communities. Government and school facilities trust Thompson to power wash bleachers, tennis courts and other buildings.
Pressure cleaning can remove stains that can make walking surfaces dangers. Have you ever walk on wet sidewalk or a wet wooden deck that has thick mold? One wrong move and you slip. Soft wash has become the preferred choice for New Jersey homes and business by offering a gentle cleaning process using safe biodegradable ingredients.

Professional grade detergents with proper ph calibration remove mold, mildew and other forms of general pollutants. Soft wash detergents contain gentle surfactants, water softeners (to prevent window spotting), and subtle hints of bleach for sterilization purposes. Our low-pressure process is the ideal choice for the most delicate of surfaces such as painted sidings, cedar shakes, stucco and even synthetic stucco.
Washing a home is not that much different than washing a big car except that our detergents have sterilizing features. 98% of the stains found on a home are organic such as mold and mildew. You can mostly find these stains on the shaded sides of the home. Mold grows best in shaded areas with an abundance of moisture. We use a 2-step cleaning process to clean all types of sidings.
First step is a low pressure application of our detergent. Detergents lift stains and holds it in suspension. Proper ph detergents will dissolve organic staining like mold and mildew. After a short dwell period we follow up with a high volume, low-pressure rinse.
Power washing units utilize a chemical injection feature the allows for detergent application. We calibrate to operate at lower pressure and will not use high pressure to clean sidings. Our operating cleaning pressures are roughly 100 to 200psi. There is no reason to use pressures in the thousands of psi.
Professional Equipment For Any Job
Full flow 8 gallon per minute pressure washer is the minimum standard. Top of the line Home Depot provide 4 gallons per minute at best. Home owner model machines lack the volume of water to efficiently clean. High volumes of water, though at lower pressure generate higher cleaning capacity than those of a higher psi rating.
Most people think that it’s all about the psi however it’s the weight of the water that finishes the job. Indeed no need for high pressure is necessary. Let’s put in into perspective: A fire trucks water operates at low pressure of roughly 150 psi, but it has a flow of 100 gallons per minute or more. This type of water flow can move a car and certainly tumble you down a street.
Analogies better help understand the benefits of water volume over pressure. Pressure washers operate in accordance to proper washing specifications ranging from 150-250 psi of water pressure. Water volume flows minimum 8 gallons per minute. High volume to clean and low pressure to eliminate the risk of damage. Average homes take roughly 2 hours to clean the sidings. Practically anything outside can qualify for a detergent soft wash. Wood decks, tree and composite decks, vinyl fences, patios, vinyl, aluminum, cedar shakes both stained and painted. We can pressure clean paves, sidewalks and driveways, solar panels, and more.
