This week, we cleaned a lovely home in Potomac, Maryland. The stucco is in need of some repair, so it needed to be cleaned first. Stucco cannot be cleaned with a pressure washer as it would add further damage. The roof tiles were made out of concrete, colored a dark brown. There was lichen spots all over this roof. Add in some large slate patios and gutter whitening and this house took us two full days to complete. We threw in some free rust removal on the front concrete and viola! This recently purchased house is ready for summer parties and Memorial Day Cook-Outs! Here are a few pictures of the roof cleaning and stucco washing. Please view our Gallery for a complete album of this job.

Ever notice how dirty your roof looks? Well, it isn’t dirt – it is gloeocapsa magma, a bacteria that grows as an algae on many surfaces. Next, moss and lichen feed of the algae, putting roots down into those shingles around the granules. These organisms will start to wear away the shingle life. Getting a roof cleaning is a lot more affordable than getting a new roof. We do not use a pressure washer, not even low pressure to effectively treat the roof. Those black streaks on the roof will dissipate before your eyes. Call us about our 5 Year Spot Free Warranty or visit us on Facebook.
Let the Pros do the Roof Cleaning!

I love watching Myth Busters and this weeks episode explored the plausibility of medieval torpedoes. Now, what do pressure washers and medieval weapons have in common? Well, I’ll tell ya!

According to historical record, a tear shaped object was used to attack invading marine vessels. After a few small scale tests of varying designs, the Myth Busters decided upon a flat-bottomed, tear shaped object to test this myth. At first, Jamie welded a cannon ball to the end of a jack hammer to start shaping the sheet metal. Shortly thereafter, the weld broke and Jamie decided to try something new – Hydroforming!

After creating a mold or stencil of the tear shape, Jamie bolted the sheet metal underneath to a frame. He then used a pressure washer to pump water into the contraption. Sine sheet metal is malleable, the shape appeared within moments. He placed a top bar above the entire thing to know when to stop the pressure washer. Basically, this diagram, but upside down. It was very cool to watch and I was tickled pink that they used a pressure washer.
