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.

Excellent job! Great team and overall very pleased. Very thorough and detailed.

I'm a business owner myself, and am tuned-in to customer service. All around, this is a great family-owned and operated company. Our driveway looks brand new following their cleaning, re-sanding, slight repair work even, and sealing. It was wonderful working with everyone there. From the owner, to the sales leader, to the workers on the job, everyone was polite and professional. There was a slight delay in completing the job, but it was unavoidable and weather-related, and the owner rearranged his schedule to get the job completed as soon as he could. Plus, it was a week away from Christmas day, and these folks were ON IT! Very impressed. Highly recommended.

This service was exceptional ! The guys showed up even earlier than expected. They were very professional, moved our outdoor furniture to our recently put down mulch so that they could clean the area and did so without disturbing anything. The cleaning of our driveway was very well done. We recommend them highly. Great job guys.Rick and Gitta Medaugh

22:39 28 Nov 22
Sunco did an outstanding job cleaning my very filthy windows sfter a major remodel. I was extremely pleased, they showed up on time, worked diligently until the job was completed to my satisfaction. They didn’t hesitate to go back and redo a couple of areas at my request. They also power washed my driveway, which was long overdue, did an excellent job. I highly recommend. I also felt their quote was very reasonable compared with others.
22:00 28 Nov 22

Have utilized the services of Sunoco PowerWash for 2years. Been extremely pleased with their work. In addition to PowerWash the home, they scrub/clean the gutters (no more dark streaks). PowerWash the concrete driveway, clean windows in and out and PowerWash the screened porch. When they are done the home looks brand new. There are many PowerWash companies. Sunoco is the best.
18:46 21 Nov 22
Sunco was fantastic. The three guys (the A team) showed up exactly on time and did a very professional job. The roof looked like new. The stained deck across the back of my house was never effected by the spray they put on the roof. All the plants were covered and also protected. Great Job!
19:27 14 Nov 22
Wonderful and complete service, as usual! They did my house, outdoor kitchen, and barn. All look fabulous and were done thoroughly and with great consideration. Always a great price!

Sunco's work was exceptional. They cleaned my gutters and power washed my house and my driveway. My home is sparkling--prettiest on the block. I was happy to have them do the work since they could do both the gutters and the washing, but I was blown away by the quality of their work and professionalism. They took the time to do my front porch and wash off my patio furniture as an extra surprise for me, too. Will definitely hire them again. The have my highest recommendation!

Scott and his crew did a great job power washing and sealing my mold covered patio. We just had a rain shower c=and I can't tell you how happy I was to see that rainwater pool and run off - no soaking in to feed the mold. Very happy with work. They arrived on time and did the work as agreed. I would highly recommend Sunco Exterior Solutions.

This is our second year using Sunco to revive our house from the spring & summer mildew and we are always blown away by their customer service, staff, and the miracles they perform. Our house always goes from looking like it was swallowed whole by green muck to looking like a new build in just a few hours!
21:34 28 Oct 22
The 3 professional young men showed up on time. Covered all plants/shrubs that were near the house, did EXACTLY what was promised/agreed upon in a timely manner, uncovered plants & left our home looking brand new. We own a pressure washer, but they did in 3 hrs what it would have taken us 1 -2 weeks to do! Worth every penny! Highly recommend!
18:49 27 Oct 22
I had my drive and walkway cleaned recently and they look great!
16:57 27 Oct 22
Exactly what I was looking for fake and competitive pricing. Would hire again in a heartbeat. Even helped me figure out my new windows
22:26 24 Oct 22
Everything went as I was told and the results were great. The crew was responsive and I will definitely use them again

15:45 20 Oct 22
So easy to work with! Responsive, reliable and having used them for several years I can say the work is always high quality. Employees are respectful of my home and make sure I am pleased with the results before they leave. I highly recommend Brian and the Sunco team. If I didn't already have a long term relationship with a window cleaner I'd use them for that, too!

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
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!

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.

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.

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.
