One of the most asked questions our customers have is the effects of Power Washing chemicals on their plants, shrubs and lawns. During the cleaning process, bleach can and most often will be used to sanitize (remove) the mold, mildew and bacteria that are on the surface; however, it is diluted when mixed with other cleaning agents and water. When the solution is applied to the surfaces it is diluted to a maximum of 1 ½% for a standard wash. After cleaning has taken place, the bleach actually breaks down into salt, which can be damaging to plant materials. The resolution for this is to rinse plants well and provide them with nutrients.
