Hi there. My name is Andy. I'm the owner of Kohona when no cleaning in this video, we're going to show you a quick example of a house that we washed in the Stillwater area. Now, obviously, this house hadn't been done in quite some time, most of the houses we do aren't quite this bad and are quite the screen. Sometimes it's a Brown. Sometimes it's a gray kind of color, but algae can come in all sorts of shapes and colors. As you can see in the video we are just lightly applying our soap and algaecide to the side of the house. We're going to want to give it a nice even coat. And we're going to let that sit there and dwell for about five minutes and the algae is going to turn a brown color, and then it's just kind of going to melt, melt away.
Two reasons we do it like this first reason is when you take a pressure washer and blast decide the house that you're speaking speed and excuse me, you're speeding up the aging process of the siding. And you could even, in some cases permanently damage the siding, it could crack or can break. You can cause leaks or water to go underneath the siding. In any case, it's not, it's not good. It's not ideal. So we like to use a soft wash method here. The second reason we do it that way is anytime you're dealing with organic growth, black algae, green algae lichens, mildew, that kind of stuff it's going to come back. It's just a matter of when using the soft wash method, it's going to stay away for a lot longer because we're actually killing the algae and versus a pressure washer.
It's just kind of going to blast it away, leaving some the using some of the organic matter in the pores of the sighting. And it's just going to bounce back a lot faster. Our method takes care of it and this homeowner should be good for at least a year, although they're in an area that it gets, it gets hardly any sun and there's a lot of tree shade. So this homeowner might have to get theirs clean more often. But they should be good for a lot longer versus if we used a pressure washer. So go ahead and enjoy the rest of this video and have a good day. Bye now.
