Professional Steam Cleaning Services in Kent

There's Pressure washing and there's Power washing and then there's Steam cleaning.  There are so many more advantages when it comes to cleaning with steam.  Surfaces can be cleaned using significantly less pressure which helps to protect the integrity of the surface being cleaned.  Standard pressure washing a.k.a jet washing, relies on brute force to clean surfaces whereas cleaning surfaces with steam provides a far less aggressive approach to removing contaminants such as general dirt, moss, algae, lichen and blackspot.

A common misconception is that cleaning with less pressure would have a negative effect on achieving best results but on the contrary;  Cleaning with steam produces far better-quality results and a deeper clean.  An analogy for comparing pressure washing to power washing & power washing to steam cleaning could be:

  • Pressure washing with cold water is the equivalent to flying economy class.

  • Power washing is the equivalent to flying business class.

  • Steam cleaning is the equivalent to flying in a Private Jet.

What is Exterior Steam Cleaning?

It is a process that uses hot water and high pressure to clean the exterior surfaces of buildings.  It works by boiling water and then pumping it through a very long hose, which sprays out as a fine mist or fog that turns into droplets when it hits the surface being cleaned.

Exterior steam cleaners are a great way to get rid of dirt from hard surfaces such as stonework, brickwork, block paving, roof tiles and more. The hot water/steam forces the grime away, without being abrasive like other types of cleaner because no chemicals are involved!
