House Washing Services

    Dirt, grime and mildew can collect on your home's  siding. If not cleaned, these factors can cause costly repairs, renovations or replacements. These contaminates are removable without using excessive water pressure. Weather you have a 1 or 3 story home we will have your home looking new again. With our special equipment we can reach the top of any sized home. We clean houses in the Charlotte and surrounding area from top to bottom using low pressure and soft washing techniques that will not damage or etch the exterior of your home.

  • Vinyl siding & Stucco are two of the most delicate materials we clean. Safely doing so requires a process which professionals refer to as “Softwashing.” This process utilizes cold water and very specific cleaning agents that do all the work rather than high pressure. These detergents are applied at 600-800 psi. Our cleaning detergents have surfactants and rinse aides just like your dishwasher soaps. 
  •  Brick is obviously a much harder and durable material than siding. For this reason, when needed, we can use higher pressure. Dirt and algae collect here just like anywhere else. The only difference with brick is it being more porous, thus allowing algae to go deeper than just the surface. Just like siding we would first apply a cleaning agent and let dwell. The difference is being able to rinse with more pressure.
  • Vinyl sealing how old is the vinyl on your homes exterior? Chances are if the siding is over 5 years old its barrier could be breaking down due to UV light and atmospheric conditions. Is your vinyl faded, discolored, or chalky? If so that is oxidation breaking down the exterior of your vinyl. We can restore the appearance of your siding with our special vinyl gloss enhancer and surface sealant.When applied this product  impregnates the vinyl with silicone, polymer, and hardeners and also has a mold /mildew formation retardant in it  that forms a protective shell against the elements.
  • Gutter Streak Removal Have you every seen those black streaks on gutters. Most people think its mold and mildew from the moisture that accumulates on gutters. While some of it may indeed be mold, there is usually a black film or distinct black stripes (called zebra stripes) caused from the tar and asphalt in roofing shingles electrostatically  bonding to the outside of the gutter while at the same time pollution and dirt buildup on the surface. When moisture combines with these pollutants, it streams down the face of the gutter building up over time. Gutters require regular maintenance to prevent the normal build up of soil deposits and oxide accumulations. This stain has to be treated with special cleaners to break the electrostatic bond.  

Low Pressure Roof Washing

    Roofs have to breathe. Ever see those black streaks on asphalt shingles? This is known as roof algae, called Gloeocapsa Magma. It will cause hot spots on the roof not letting the roof reflect the sun and heat. Sadly, if not treated, it will only get worse over time . Algae likes to thrive on the north side of roofs where the proper amount of shade is present. It feeds on the crushed limestone that is used in asphalt shingles, literately eating your roof. Rain spreads the algae down the roof causing unsightly black streaks. Eventually, the algae will take over the entire roof. We can kill and remove the algae using contractor grade cleaners and low pressure which will make your roof look new again. In fact, 1/3 of roofs are replaced prematurely do to algae decay.  

Concrete Cleaning and Paver Cleaning

    Having your driveway cleaned along with a house wash, is a great way to increase curb appeal. A lot of people do not realize how dirty their driveways, sidewalks, and patios are and are amazed with the difference once cleaned.

Cleaning Decks and Wood Restoration

    Wood restoration is one of the most misunderstood processes. Wood is soft and can be easily damaged with too much water pressure. A lot of factors determine what deck cleaner we will use to restore the wood. Once we choose the correct cleaners, we wash the wood with the right amount of pressure. We then use a neutralizing process to prepare the wood to be sealed. The number one reason a sealer fails is because the wood is not prepared properly. After the wood dries to the proper moisture level, we then apply a contractor
grade sealer.
