Why should I wash my house?

Well first of all, for curb appeal. There’s no better way to maintain the value of a property than cleaning the exterior of a home, or business. It’s the most economical improvement for general appearance before painting or replacing siding.

What causes the build up of mold and algae?

Mostly the environment. We have very few dry months in the south, and it’s generally humid in the summer with cool damp weather in the winter. This creates a perfect environment for the mold, mildew and algae to grow, coupled with regular fall out pollutants like, dust, bird droppings, bugs and pollen.

How often should I have my house washed?

Most of our customers prefer once every 2-3yrs, but it will depend on where the structure is located. If it’s near lots of trees, a body of water, farm land, or a dusty road it may need to be cleaned once a year.

Will the chemicals harm my plants?

The few plant damage complaints we’ve had actually turned out to be diseased plants prior to our work being performed. We will inspect all vegetation before the job is started, and bring it to your attention if we see a problem. As a professional service, we thoroughly wet all vegetation before application of cleaners, and thoroughly rinse them afterwards. Sometimes when dry conditions exist we may ask you to water the day before, and the day after, we’ve completed the service.

Are your chemicals eco-friendly?

All of our cleaners are reported by the manufacturer as eco-friendly when used according to directions, but the key to this is proper handling. Professional cleaning compounds are sold in concentrated amounts and we dilute them to the strength needed for effective cleaning.

What do I need to do before you arrive to do the job?

We ask all customers to remove personal items such as – wind chimes, hanging plants, and patio furniture at least 15ft from the area where we will be cleaning. Items like grills and tables can be moved around during cleaning. It is advised to remove window screens so we can fully rinse windows and sills. We arrive with 400 gal. Of water on the trailer, but access to water supply is still recommended.

How much water will be used?

Most houses (2000-3000sq.ft) will generally take 200-400 gal. of water to clean. But this also is dictated by how large of an area and how dirty the surface is and how long it’s been since the last cleaning.

What forms of payment do you accept?

At this time we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover, as well as cash or check.
