Not every surface requires a pressure washer, especially since our Soft Wash method give a longer lasting clean than standard pressure washing. We treat the organic material on the house as a pest, so we eradicate it! Just because one cannot see the organism growing in the siding crevices, doesn’t mean that it isn’t. Our solution breaks down the dirt and grime and we are able to just rinse it away. The solution will not harm your plants and tends to last longer than standard power washing.  Check out the pictures of houses we’ve cleaned just this year in Easton, a lovely historic town on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Gutters were intended to collect water from the roof, so a house would not be surrounded by a stream of water creating a small trench in the yard. The problem is they don’t just collect water – they collect leaves, twigs, pollen, seeds, etc.  There are a myriad of gutter protectors out there: guards, helmets and even sponges that are designed to alleviate the need to clean out the gutters on a regular basis.

Dirty gutters, roof, soffits and fascia

The problem remains though – what happens when the metal holes get clogged or the sponges can’t dry out? The gutters clog and water ends up backing up into the roof, fascia and soffits and it doesn’t evaporate creating a healthy environment for algae/mold to grow.  We cleaned a roof this week that had sponges in the gutters. Not only were they ineffectual, but the sponge became a wonderful nursery for trees and weeds to grow. See how dark the wood is under the gutters? That was white last year!

Failed Gutter Sponges

When we got on the roof the clean out the gutters and remove the sponges, this is what we found: The sponges prevented the gutters from flushing the detritus.

So, after removing all the sponges and flushing out the gutters, we are able to perform roof cleaning! Not only that, but we cleaned the fascia too. All I can say to gutter guard companies is: keep it up! You are aiding our industry considerably.

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!

Ease Your Stress – Call a Pro

I’m a DIY kinda gal, but sometimes, it just isn’t worth all the time and effort. I spent my Sunday cleaning the mattresses in the house. Now if the weather was nice, I think I would have spent that day outside instead and called a professional to do some of my heavy Spring Cleaning. Trying to save money balanced with the value of my time can be tricky and sometimes I fail at solving that equation.  I got married a few years ago and I wanted to make my own wedding dress. I had the skill and the desire, but I did not have the time. So, I ended up buying a wonderful dress and just did the alterations myself. I compromised-I got a beautiful dress and saved money by altering it myself.

For some, the year starts in the Spring. Everything starts coming together and life becomes much more hectic. We take stock of our surroundings and decide what we want to improve and what requires to be improved. Houses are an expensive investment that need constant maintenance, some of which can only be undertaken in good weather. We put out a flyer recently detailing our methods and company profile.

Your home actually isn’t dirty at all, it’s infested.

Infested with an organism that affects your home’s appearance; it will eat and destroy wood, deteriorate roofing materials and absorb heat. These pests are algae, mold, mildew and bacteria. These pests are costing you money!

Standard pressure washing only attacks these pests at the surface. Though the stain is gone, the roots remain. Our SoftWash System treats the problem like a pest, not a stain! We clean the surface and achieve a 100% kill ratio on these pests.

~The SoftWash System Lasts 4 to 6 Times Longer Than Pressure Washing.

Quality is important – we are full time cleaners, not weekend warriors.
