There is something unique and different about stucco that is really attractive. It shows a pleasant alternative to siding, brick, and stone.
Stucco is also prone to collecting dirt and dust because of its textured surface and porous nature. This means what started as a beautiful exterior look becomes unsightly in short order. This means the walls need quality pressure washing services, and Squeegee Squad is the perfect solution for that purpose. It is highly recommended to have your home pressure washed at least once a year.
We wholeheartedly recommend that you allow us to do the pressure washing on your behalf. We work when you work, so you won’t need to give up your weekends and evenings to pressure wash your stucco home. This will save you precious time for the family.

What Happens Before Pressure Washing Stucco?
The first thing we will do with you is an external inspection of the home. We are looking for cracks and gaps in the stucco. These need to be patched completely before we can start pressure washing. Failure to do so will mean water can work into the cracks and spots between the stucco and walls. This will result in mold or mildew on the internal walls and will lead to even more significant issues down the road. It is best to have a contractor come to your home and make these repairs before Squeegee Squad gets started on pressure washing the stucco.
Pressure Washing Stucco and Stubborn Stains
Spots on the home’s stucco that are exceptionally stubborn, typically on the northwest corner, often need to be spot treated. We have rotating scrub brush attachments to focus on these specific spots.
The rotating brush makes the cleaning quick and easy. This allows us to work more quickly and efficiently for the remainder of the home.
If there are signs of rust on the home, it needs a special detergent designed for rust specifically. Often, rust spots mean additional scrubbing and work. Something that Squeegee Squad has worked on plenty of times previously.
Detergents For Pressure Washing Stucco
We pressure wash stucco in sections. We will start one specific area and work our way around the home until done. We also have specific detergents for stucco and external sidings that help get the dirt, grime, mold, and mildew. We spray the entire surface, working bottom to top, ensuring we cover all of the areas. This sits for about 10 minutes to work into the porous spots on the wall.
Specific detergents are necessary for specific parts of the walls. We have all of the correct chemicals on hand all the time for this. Again, why we recommend professional services.
Pressure Washing Your Stucco Clean
Once the detergent sits for a time, we come back, and pressure wash the stucco walls with a soft washing technique. We work slowly, carefully, and deliberately to clean the entire wall. Leaving behind even a small amount of mildew or mold can cause real problems on stucco, including significant damage.
We work from the top down this time, as the additional water and detergent will wash parts of the dirt and grime away. However, we still take considerable care to be sure and clean the entire wall.
