What a difference power washing makes on a deck.
This particular deck was dirty and had mildew. When mildew builds up on the wood of the deck, it becomes slippery and dangerous.
We first applied a solution, allowed the solution to sit and carefully power washed the entire deck using a low pressure power washer and a white tip. The reason for the low pressure power washer is because you don't want to splinter or score the wood.
When the power washing is complete the deck needs to dry a minimum of 2 days and the deck is ready for staining. In this case the customer simply want the dirt and mildew removed to have a clean looking deck.
The customer asked if we could clean their brick stairs. I not only told them we could but that we would make the brick look like new.
Over the years ground-in dirt took over the look of the brick stairs. Using a wand, a white tip and a 3500 psi/8 gallon per minute pressure washer, the dirty brick stairs received a bath and was fresh and clean.
As you can see the customer's front brick stairs are no longer an eye sore and are now bright and clean.
This roof is in dire need of a cleaning. What you see on the roof is black algae(also call black streaks). The black Algae typically grows on the north side of the roof. When you drive through a neighbor you will see the black algae on 1 side but not across the street. However across the street the black algae will be in the back yard of the roof.
As you can tell, the black algae is unsightly and needs to be removed without harming the shingle. The only method approved by the shingle manufacturers is soft wash roof cleaning. Soft wash roof cleaning will remove the black algae using a solution and applying the solution using pressure no greater than a garden hose. Without a doubt, soft wash roof cleaning will clean the unsightly black streaks without harming the shingle and restore the roof to it's natural color as depicted in this photo.
