No, due to our cleaning process, equipment and experience this is not a problem. Exterior cleaning will actually help prolong your paint life by removing mold, mildew and other elements that are hard on your painted surfaces.

Our roof cleaning method is a manufacturer prescribed, “no pressure” soft-wash cleaning process designed to safely clean without any roof damage. When cleaned properly by a qualified and experienced technician, the result will be a roof that looks new again and hassle free.

No. By cleaning your lanai or screen enclosures and having mold, mildew and algae removed – it will also help reduce algae growth in your pool. We can also remove pine needles from your screen enclosure.

We use a surface cleaner that hits the surface on an angle instead of directly into cracks so not to remove sand from your pavers.

We use a balance of detergents that are designed to break down, kill and remove mold, mildew, gum, dirt and other contaminants on their own. Therefore, very little pressure is used for most cleaning applications. The proper chemical is sprayed on the surface, allowed a short dwell time to work, then is rinsed off restoring your surface to it’s natural clean beauty. This specialized cleaning process will not harm plants or grass and will last longer than traditional pressure washing with water only. Most customers comment that their house and/or cleaning surface looks like it has been freshly painted after our cleaning process.

We rinse plants before, during and after cleaning and sometimes cover as needed. Each situation is different depending on the landscaping and plant materials. We will let you know what you can expect. This is why it’s important to choose a reputable company.

We use a rinsing agent to aid in leaving windows clean. Some spotting and streaking may occur, but most customers are happy with the results.

In most cases once a year is sufficient on houses, screen enclosures, pool decks and driveways. Roofs can last between three to five years. The above depends on shade, weather and location. Pool decks and entryways can use spot cleaning in six months.

If the proper detergents are not used to kill the mold/mildew, you can actually cause it to spread and it will reproduce quicker. Also, plants and grass can be killed or harmed if the proper detergents and methods are not used.

Every 3-4 years oak trees have what’s called a “mast” year. That means the trees produce and drop a lot more acorns than normal. We have the proper detergents and experience to remove those annoying acorn stains. Pressure washing acorn stains with only water will not remove the tannins that cause the stain. So give us a call when they stop falling. Also, watch your dog’s, they seem to like these nut’s and eating them could get them sick to their stomach.

Pressure washing is no longer about “Blasting” dirt away with very High Pressure (Or at least it shouldn’t be). It should be done by using the correct high quality detergents, which are based upon the type of surface we are cleaning. We let the detergent dwell, and then fully rinsing it off. This is all done with very LOW pressure. We only use the best detergents (They are not the ones they sell in the big box stores, or local hardware stores, those are not very good). We wash homes with a proprietary three part detergent. The first part kills mold, algae, and mildew. The next is a surfactant that helps draw out dirt and grime. Lastly, we add a rinse aide to help remove the detergents. We only use the highest quality equipment. We do rinse all vegetation before, during, and after detergent application, eliminating the chance to harm your plants, grass and trees.

Pressure washing is thought to be a simple and easy task. However, when done improperly, with inferior equipment, TOO MUCH PRESSURE, lack of knowledge and/or experience, pressure washing can cause severe damage. Incorrect washing can etch glass, break and crack siding, window seals, and caulking, cause non-visible water damage, kill landscaping, ruin surfaces, loosen or remove siding and shingles, etc.
