If you’ve let another year slip by without cleaning and pressure washing your home’s exterior, it’s probably too late to try it now. With too little sun and early nightfall, you shouldn’t risk having water freeze on your exterior surfaces after a cleaning. Unevaporated water in concrete pores, under siding and in wood grain can expand and damage as the temperature drops rapidly after dark.
Instead, grab your new calendar, make the call and anchor your spot on your cleaner’s spring schedule. Once the short days, snow and ice give way to the annual thaw, pressure washing companies get booked out in a hurry. While a mild winter may allow for some exterior cleaning, if the weather cooperates, to really do it right, you should plan ahead.
Gutter Cleaning and Leaf Guards
One project you can schedule during the cold of winter is to have your gutters cleaned out and covered with a leaf protection system. If they’re still packed with fall leaves, you’re setting yourself up for potential ice dams. Since snowmelt must run off the roof to avoid the destruction of ice damming, clogged gutters and spouts spell big trouble. Keep an eye out for indications of blockages when it snows. If your gutters begin to produce icicles, they may have a problem we can solve for you.
Soft Wash Roof Cleaning
Come springtime, if you notice dark streaks forming on your roof, you’re probably farming algae up there. Left to its own devices, algae, moss, mold and mildew will wear out your roof long before its normal service life. Once you see its ugly signature, you should schedule a soft wash cleaning. With a gentle spray, an effective algaecide and sealant, we can restore your roof’s beauty and protect it from re-growth for years to come.
Siding and Fence Wash
Like the roof, your siding and fences may be looking dingy and stained. The same fungi that can destroy your roof love your vertical surfaces, too. Whether your home or fencing is clad in wood, vinyl, aluminum or masonry, a good, careful pressure wash can make them all appear new again. But care must be taken around the windows and doors, so be sure your contractor has the experience to avoid washing out the seals.
Concrete and Deck Cleaning
Departing polar bear weather usually leaves behind a film of dirt and dust. Your deck and patio furniture will want for a good scrub before you can enjoy the lovely days ahead. Your sidewalks, driveway and garage floor may have the residue of de-icing chemicals clinging fast. You don’t want to have those compounds lingering on your expensive pavement, corroding its way deeper into the concrete. Pressure washing your deck and power washing your concrete will eliminate winter’s inevitable mess.
