In addition to roof cleaning services, we offer exterior house washing services including washing down siding, decks, patios, walkways, driveways, and chimneys. It is important to maintain the exterior of your home to preserve the overall value as well as curbside aesthetics. We have learned through our research that certain surfaces have a longer lifespan when washed correctly. Each surface we apply a specific formula for cleaning. It is important to note that the proper solution applied to a specific situation is a crucial first step in the cleaning process. Using the proper pressure is important as not to damage surfaces and to adequately clean off the chemicals and leaving a dirt and fungus free substrate.
House Washing Services to Remove Mildew and Algae
Whether you need vinyl siding cleaning, wood siding or have mildew or algae on your brick home, we have a formula and the solution to clean it properly and improve the longevity of your paint job and surface integrity. Molds and mildews can penetrate the surface and eventually eat away wood over time. Almost all surfaces will be damaged by mildew or mold if left unchecked. We use a mild cleaning solution to arrest the growth and eliminate it. Keeping your home’s interior and exterior surfaces in good looking shape will save you money in the long run and maintain the market value. Over time, you can tell if a home has been kept maintained on a regular basis. One word of caution: the integrity of vinyl siding can be compromised if cleaned unprofessionally. The cleaning solution should be what cleans the surface from any dirt or fungus growth. The pressure washer is just the means to rinse off the chemicals. A garden hose with adequate pressure can provide the same results.
Removing Mold on Sidewalks, Patios, Driveways, and Hardscapes
We use a concrete surface cleaner and adequate pressure to remove the dirt, mold, mildew, and algae off any exterior wall, walkway, patio or driveway. We will remove the furniture off patios, blow off the surface and apply the detergents at a rate as needed per the soiled surface. After the agents are administered, the microorganisms break down on the surface so they can be rinsed away by a pressure washing. Our cleaners do a great job of removing black stains, and algae often found on the north side of a house. Our cleaners will not harm your plants. We replace the furniture to its original place, and your exterior surface looks new!
Pressure Washing a Wood Deck or Not?
Decks get used a lot in the spring, summer, and fall, so it stood to reason you want it clean and maintained throughout the year. Removing algae or grease stains from wood after grilling isn’t as simple as pulling out the pressure washer. A high-pressure machine can break down the fibers in the wood and leave marks on the surface. High pressure is not what cleans the wood as some mistakenly think; it’s the deck cleaner you use that does all the heavy lifting. Using the correct deck wash products and applying the right amount of pressure but not too much can clean moss off the deck.
