Pressure Washing: Your Questions, Answered
A Comprehensive Guide to All Things Home Pressure Washing.
What Type of Service Do You Need?
10 Years Of Cleaning Excellence
In the last several years there has been a lot of new terms in our industry. You hear about Pressure Washing, House Soft Washing, Roof Soft Washing, Surface Cleaning and Hot Water Pressure Washing just to name a few.People also use the terms power washing and pressure washing which are both the same thing.
To decide on which service is needed it typically just comes down to what surface you are trying to clean. Hopefully this page will help clear up any confusion and give you the knowledge you need to schedule the proper service for your project.
House Soft Washing
House Soft washing is still performed with a pressure washer, we just make a few changes to get the pressure down into the range we need. Instead of using high pressure tips we use tips with a large orifice so that the pressure is lowered but the volume of water is at the max.
Our large commercial pressure washers are capable of spraying 10 gallons of water per minute. This large volume of water is how we are able to rinse all the dirt and debris off of your house so efficiently and without damage.
House Soft Washing starts with a detergent which applied at around 300 PSI. The water coming out of our spray guns is at such a low pressure you can even rinse your hands off with the stream without hurting yourself. So obviously it is not enough pressure to damage your home. You never want to have high pressure used on your home. High pressure can damage your home and windows, removing paint and blowing out window seals. House soft washing is the new industry standard.
Concrete & Driveway Cleaning
We have talked about the house and the roof. Now lets go over the last type of pressure washing we provide. Concrete and hardscape pressure washing covers a lot. Pool decks, driveways, patios, drive throughs, sidewalks and parking lot cleaning all fall under this category. Where a low pressure soft wash is used on siding and roofing, high pressure is used to clean these hard surfaces.
We use a walk behind surface cleaner which is powered by our commercial pressure washers to evenly clean concrete and other hard surfaces. A surface cleaner allows us clean at a safe distance from the surface at the exact pressure needed. For really dirty concrete like drive throughs and gas stations we go even further by using our hot water pressure washers to cut through grease, oil and road grime.

Contacted Sunco for window cleaning services. Company was very responsive and came out within a few days to give us an estimate. Price was fair especially since we have high ceilings and could not clean them ourselves. The workers were extremely professional and did a fantastic job. We will be using them again.
21:38 29 Aug 22
Sunco performed an exterior soft wash on our house.The men doing the work were very professional and they did a great job. The price was in line for the work they did. We were very impressed with how our porch and railings came so clean. We were sure they would need to be painted but once Sunco finished, it wasn't necessary! We will definitely keep them in mind when another cleaning is needed.

They did a great job. My fiber-cement siding gets kinda green, especially on the north side of the house. Now it looks like it was just painted! They show up on time and make sure you are satisfied before they leave. Very professional.
19:44 02 Jul 22
I can’t thank Sunco enough for the work they did on my house. It looks great and will keep the HOA at bay.Brian was on time, professional and thorough.From the moment Sunco arrived in their state of the art truck, professional Uniform, you can tell this is a first class operation. Brian moved everything away from my house, explained to me the process and got straight to work.Without a doubt the best experience I have had. We will definitely be calling Sunco and their team of professionals in the future.
14:09 02 Jul 22
The crew showed up early and finished quickly. They did a better job of removing some of artillery fungus (black specks) from the vinyl siding than other companies we've used.
15:21 30 Jun 22
The team did a great job and were very professional!
14:03 30 Jun 22

I had the roof, house, deck, driveway and walkway cleaned. Sunco did a fantastic job. From my initial call and contact to the scheduling to the arrival on date and time ( they were going to be 15 minutes late, they called to tell me ) to the protection of shrubs to the outstanding job of cleaning, I rate them 5 star. I will definitely be using them annually and highly recommend their services to everyone. Veterans check to see if your eligible for a discount. They are very veteran friendly.Tim Ewell HHI

Excellent customer service. Service was timely, individuals performing the service were very professional. Soft wash on the stucco was excellent, all of the stains from the shingles were removed. I will make this an annual task to be completed by SUNCO. Highly recommend this company.
18:32 29 May 22
Good work and even though I had a problem it was taken care of the next day and the job was excellent. Thank you!!!!
19:36 27 May 22
They showed up on the appointed time, and did a great job on our home, driveway and sidewalks. Definitively recommend. They are usually backed up but worth the wait
22:15 26 May 22
My wife and I couldn't be happier with the service provided by Sunco. We just moved into our home with a need of a complete top to bottom power wash. Sunco arrived early (when does that ever happen) and by the time they were finished our roof, driveway, pool deck and outside windows were the cleanest they have been in years. We look forward to using Sunco each and every spring to maintain our beautiful home.
15:38 25 May 22
Great family owned local business. Terrific job for me.
20:23 24 May 22
16:59 23 May 22
I really like the professionalism. They show with an iPad, take the measurements, email the quote and insurance proof and exact schedule time. No waiting around forever for a quote or a scheduled date. They did the best job of anyone we’ve had.
20:07 17 May 22
Great service. On time and thorough.
17:52 17 May 22
12:47 17 May 22
So very happy w/ SUNCO in every way! Easy to get an estimate and once I booked a date the update until service was amazing! The 2 gentleman who washed my windows were prompt, professional and courteous and oh so neat! Follow up after the job was great. I would recommend them and will use them again!
19:07 16 May 22
I am not certain my roof was ever soft washed before. The front of the house is north facing so it is easy for mold to accumulate. Your crew waited until the roof was completely dry before again hitting the areas that needed extra attention. I appreciated that all my plantings were well protected. It is amazing how quickly the job was completed to my full satisfaction. This was costlier than some similar services, but quality is a commodity that is hard to put a price tag on. Thanks.
22:27 10 May 22
Dalton, New Mike, Old Mike & Liam arrived on time and did the most amazing job. Our house, driveway, deck look brand new. They are the dream team. They arrived on time, were professional and polite and patient with us as we had never pressure washed our home before and we had all the questions. What a pleasure to work with such terrific people who know what they are doing and work with a smile. Highly recommend.
14:38 09 May 22
The crew did a great job cleaning my solar panels! They spent a lot of time making sure they were clean.

The Sunco crew was here yesterday for my twice annual cleaning and the place looks really great. The windows just sparkle. They were running a little late yesterday and I had a courtesy call to let me know in advance of the appointment time. Much appreciated. As usual they were courteous and careful of my home and finished the job in good time. Thanks Sunco

I had my patio, lanai screen, and windows washed, and the 2 men did a great job. They moved and replaced all the furniture and potted plants and were very courteous and efficient. Thank you for the nice work.
21:46 16 Apr 22
The house and windows were cleaned very well. The windows are sparkling ! Sunco made all efforts to prevent breakage of garden items. The employees were pleasant and professional. We have used them annually and never disappointed! Our friends and neighbors have used them and are happy with the services they provide. Thank you for a job well done!! The Surrusco’s

They did an excellent job on the house and driveway. What a great group of people working for Sunco. The house looks like new and the driveway is unbelievable I plan on using them four times a year!!
20:35 14 Apr 22
Our windows never looked so clean ! ! The guys did a fabulous job and even went back and redid a couple of the hard too reach windows. Guys were considerate and courteous, cleaned up everything and put furniture back. Love the job that was done and will definitely keep Sunco's name and number for the next time.
15:28 14 Apr 22
16:10 12 Apr 22
The crew was very professional and did an amazing job. But most importantly a storm came through an hour later and the back windows were all dirty again from the pollen. They offered to come back out and redo them. I thought that awesome of them. I would highly recommend Sunco!
21:52 08 Apr 22
I always have Sunco do my windows, skylights and gutters. They are the best. Their staff is ultra professional from the receptionist to the technicians.Their prices are fair and they are accommodating.Very happy to be their client.
12:31 08 Apr 22
We just had our driveway, walkway, front porch, and back patio pavers cleaned, sanded, & sealed by Sunco. I can’t recommend them highly enough for response to my first inquiry, to timely start of the job, and professional work throughout. Our pavers look absolutely wonderful now! We recommend everyone call Sunco for an excellent job!
15:30 05 Apr 22
00:30 08 Mar 22
Great company to work with. On time, professional and pleasant! Highly recommend!!
01:37 04 Mar 22
From the minute I reached out to Sunco to the time the team finished the job, they communicated so well. They showed up exactly on time and were complete within one hour. I got two estimates for a roof soft wash and Sunco was half the cost of the other company. I highly recommend Sunco for your home detailing.

Dalton and Mike were very courteous, efficient and thorough and took the time to show me some issues of which I was not aware. These issues were not their doing but thought it best that I know about them for future repair or observation.
14:44 10 Feb 22
Roof was badly stained, and within a couple of hours, we got to find out the actual roof color. The guys were very professional and helpful, answering all our questions. They power washed the patio and front walkway improving the curb appeal greatly. For the cost, time and effort, it was well worth every penny..
20:16 02 Feb 22
The crew did a great job on a full house cleanup, roof to driveway. I was impressed with the prep work to make sure our foundation plantings, which are plentiful, were all well protected.
17:10 29 Jan 22
Great service, efficient, attention to detail and great to support a locally owned and operated business. Highly recommend them to everyone who needs the services offered. Great website, ease of getting an estimate for cleaning the roof and hope to pass their names onto family, friends and clients.
14:02 28 Jan 22
Great job, will use them again!
16:34 19 Jan 22
These guys always show up on the scheduled date. Their soft wash system makes the commercial properties I own/manage look great; as well as my Bluffton Home. Their solution helps keep mildew at bay for a year or more. I would not hesitate to recommend them 100%.
20:20 18 Jan 22
These guys always deliver a top notch job...professional, timely...and quality work. I have regularly scheduled with Sunco for over 10 years. Courteous and always do a fantastic job. Great follow up! Highly recommend 👌.

I was extremely satisfied and I would only use Sunco for pressure washing because you definitely know what you are doing. The employees should be awarded for their quality in providing 5 star services.Thank you,Stephani Johnson

We would highly recommend Sunco Exterior Solutions for their professionalism and quality work. They did everything they said they would do when they said they would do it, and they did it very well.
15:30 11 Oct 21
13:09 06 Oct 21
We thought the workers were excellent and knew what they were doing. We had algae removed from our roof. They covered the bushes where the runoff occurred, but the chemicals in the solution killed our bushes overnight. The workers told us this was a possibility, but with the plastic cover over them I didn’t think another thing about it. Unfortunately, chemicals got into the root system and they were dead the next day. Just be cautious when doing that kind of work.
21:07 05 Oct 21
These folks are terrific. Did windows in and out and power washed house and drive way. Arrived on time (early in fact) and could not have been more thorough and professional
19:58 04 Oct 21

We are new to the low country and learned that it is imperative to maintain the exterior of your home.I spoke to a few companies that provide power washing/ soft washing services in Bluffton. Saul’s team and specifically “the A team” were great. They educated me on the process and what they would achieve. They answered my questions on a professional basis. After completing the job they walked me around my property and pointed out some areas that I should be aware of. I would highly recommend Sunco. Well done Saul for building a great service oriented company.Terry M.
23:54 28 Aug 21
I really liker the job your men did . They were efficient and personable at the same time,
21:50 25 Aug 21
We were recommended to Sunco Exterior and were not disappointed. Got back with us immediately, gave a quote and were there within a week. Intended to have them power wash the house but added gutter cleaning and a roof blow off. They did it all! After years of not having it done they went above and beyond to get the house looking almost as good as new. Very, very happy at how it turned out. And the price was very affordable as well. Thank you!

The Sunco team did an exceptional job on our Palmetto Bluff home. The team performed an entire House Soft Wash including the main house and carriage house, a large exterior pavilion and screened porch, shutter doors, ceilings, ceiling fans and outdoor furniture. They meticulously cleaned all exterior and interior windows and glass doors. They carefully protected everything and used only water on all stained wood. Our house looks and feels so clean and fresh. The Sunco team arrived right on time, were exceedingly courteous, and took great care outside and inside our house. We will definitely bring them back year after year. Thank you Sunco team!
11:51 30 Jul 21
Living on an island you get a lot of companies that base their return calls and scheduled appointments on “island time” where things are left stuck in limbo for months on end...well Sunco Exterior Solutions LLC was a breath of fresh air!! They returned my inquiry next day and had me on their schedule for a total house, driveway, cement pad, staircase, interior and exterior windows and porch power/soft wash within a few weeks!

The Safest & Best Way to Clean
If your roof is starting to show dark black vertical streaks and darkening overall then a roof soft wash is the service you are looking for. This discoloration is caused by a type of bacteria called Gloeocapsa Magma. Its ideal environment is the warm, humid climate that Hilton Head and Bluffton provides, so it’s a common issue on roofing.
Here’s the issue: Gloeocapsa Magma isn’t just ugly. It actually feeds on the limestone in your shingles. This means that you’re losing out on curb appeal, roofing longevity, and even energy efficiency.
The good news is that Sunco can take that dirty, ugly roof and turn back the clock making it look new again. A roof soft wash is the only safe and effective way to remove the staining without damaging the shingles. Never let a pressure washer be used on your roof! Roof soft washing is different because you have to have a dedicated low pressure pump to apply your solution. The specifications for roof washing are set out by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association. Who better to tell you how to wash a shingle than the people who actually make them? Following ARMA’s guidelines for effective roof washing require a low pressure detergent application. This leaves the shingles looking as good as the day they were put on and also helps to preserve the integrity of the roof by eliminating the algae feeding on it which can cause granule loss.
