Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.’s)
What Is That Growing On My Siding?!
It’s probably mildew, mold or algae. Growth usually occurs in humid, shady areas, typically the north side of the building. Virtually all exterior surfaces are susceptible to mold and mildew infestation: so-called “maintenance free” vinyl siding, stucco, brick, concrete, wood decks and fences, vinyl decks and fences and roofs to name a few.
Why Hire Us?
End Results. We realize that any “Joe” can purchase a pressure washer from the hardware store and advertise a service. Unfortunately, we’ve also seen the costly damage caused by unskilled operators. We are trained and experienced using the most modern “softwash” techniques. Our hot/cold water equipment is state-of-the-art, and when combined with industry leading detergents, allows the best possible results for your property, the first time, every time!
Are You Insured?
Yes! We carry $1M General Commercial Liability with $2M Aggregate. We also carry Workman’s Compensation. You can view our Certificate of Insurance HERE.
What Is “Soft Washing”?
Soft-washing is a cleaning process which utilizes low pressure to deliver a customized cleaning solution, specially blended to meet the demands of each project. It differs from pressure washing in that the cleaning solution is applied at low pressure which will not harm or damage painted surfaces, shingles, wood, or vinyl siding. Pressures do not exceed 300 P.S.I. That’s 300, not 3,000!
The power of chemistry is what makes our Soft-Wash process so effective. Different surfaces and different contaminants require different levels of “soft washing”. With each cleaning job we perform, our cleaning solution is custom mixed on site and applied. We do not have a “one size fits all” approach to cleaning. We will customize a cleaning plan to maximize effectiveness while also keeping your cost as low as possible!
Will This Cleaning Harm My Plants?
No! We pay special attention to thoroughly wet down all surrounding vegetation before, during and after the cleaning process. Our bio-friendly cleaning solution is very mild yet it allows us to achieve amazing results. Very sensitive plants will be covered, if necessary.
Do I Need To Be Home?
Absolutely not! We understand and respect that you have a busy schedule and we will work with you to find a time that meets your specific needs. We know that you have more important things to do…spend time with the kids, catch a Cardinal’s game, or hit the links. We do ask that all windows are tightly closed and that any pets be placed inside for the duration of the cleaning or estimate.
How Much Will It Cost?
There are so many variables that factor into the cost of our services, it is next to impossible to give an accurate and competitive quote without giving the property a visit. This visit is always free and it allows us to give you a detailed estimate outlining the surfaces that need attention. To give you a ballpark idea, our minimum housewash charge is $200.
Do You Accept Credit Cards?
Yes! We accept all major credit cards on-site or through PayPal on our website. It’s a fast, easy and secure way to pay for our services. There is no need to register with PayPal to make a payment. Be consumer-savvy and earn points and/or cash back!
