A contractor sent these images of Cedar Clapboard Restoration job. Their client (a new home owner) thought the wood siding was naturally that dark! After cleaning with Cedar Wash, the home looked new again. The dark color was black mold that took over the home. Black mold is alive and (with open windows) the spores can blow in, causing headaches, allergies and other health issues. Spores leave dust film over everything inside of the home when it enters. Most home owners do not understand the potential health risks and danger that exterior mold can cause. A house with cedar siding or any wood siding should be kept clean and sealed with Cedar Seal which will not allow the mold to grow because the Cedar Seal, "water proofs" the surface and mold can't grow without water being absorbed by the wood siding.

A happy home owners house images sent to us after using Cedar Wash

Here is another set of images sent in from a happy home owner who used Cedar Wash and a Soft Tip nozzle to clean his cedar siding.

Our hydrogen peroxide based formulation receives compliment after compliment for its wood brightening properties. The alternative has always been chlorine bleach or TSP but that leaves wood surfaces with an unnatural, bleached look and rarely comes out uniformly clean. More often than not it, it has a "blotchy" look that looks as if a bucket of bleach was thrown on the house. Once those products soak into the cedar and the sun beats down the almost "bake" in the sun, it causes extreme drying, making the shingles or shakes dry, thin and brittle.

With Cedar Wash, cedar siding and roofing shingles come out uniformly clean. Our Cedar cleaning product does not contain bleach nor does it require bleach to be added. Cedar Wash comes in a powdered form that when mixed with water creates millions of tiny little bubbles; these bubbles loosen all the old dead wood particles to be easily washed off along with mold and mildew stains. Our secret is the natural adhesives that we added to keep the product on vertical or steep pitched surfaces long enough to clean before running off. If your cedar had an old stain or sealer on them, the Cedar Wash will penetrate it, dissolving the old stain enough to be washed off. The quickest way to wash is with a pressure washer but good results can come from light brushing with a scrub brush and a hose powered rinse this is all that is needed to clean up your cedar shakes or shingles and save them from rotting away.

Using a garden hose and deck brush is one way of cleaning the cedar but it is slow, using a pressure washer is much faster. The key to pressure washing cedar is the pressure and the nozzle on the end of the pressure washer. Stock pressure washing nozzles put out a very sharp stream of pressure if you get the wand to close to the cedar you will leave a scar.To much pressure is also bad, often dislodging or cracking the shingles or shakes. We recommend a nozzle called the soft tip that we had made for our cleaning technicians back when we had the cleaning company. We figured that if we could not teach the guys to avoid scarring the wood we could make a tip that would make it impossible to scar the wood. The Soft Tip has an "open mouth" the water comes out just like a hose nozzle, this open mouth reduce pressure by 75%. you could clean with 2,000psi and by adding the Soft Tip reduce pressure to about 500psi. We highly recommend adding a soft tip to your pressure washer when cleaning cedar.

Unlike chlorine bleach and TSP the Cedar Wash will not harm the vegetation around the house, it also will not stain any painted surface or any fabric that it may come in contact with.

Cedar Wash works great on all types of cedar or any type of natural wood. Use it to clean fences, decks, furniture, cedar siding or roofing, barn board and log homes.

When you have completed your cleaning, let it dry for 48 hours and then apply our Cedar Seal to protect it. Cedar Seal penetrates the cedar and forms a water resistant barrier that moisture can't pentrate. This water barrier will remain  in the wood for up to 15 years! Cedar Seal also contains a fungicide to protect against any mold or mildew growth. The secret to preventing mold on wood, is not allowing the wood to absorb water, mold needs water, no water no mold. Cedar Seal should always be used after cleaning any cedar, you can use Cedar Seal as a base coat if you were  going to apply a stain or paint to the cedar or if you just like the look of clean natural cedar. Without Cedar Seal just cleaned cedar will show mold again in as early as one year. Don't do all that cleaning work without apply Cedar Seal to protect it, it makes no sense at all. Cedar Seal is your insurance policy that your newly cleaned cedar will last.
