Most people get their homes cleaned once per year but because our solution kills mold, algae, and mold at the root, on average our customers get their homes cleaned every 2 years. Every home setting is different depending on the amount of shade, low-lying areas, proximity to large bodies of water, rain percentages, and foliage around your home. Some homes have large patios and porches or pool decking and lake docks which need more frequent cleaning. If mold and mildew are left on paint or stain, its byproduct of acid will eat through the paint or stain. Cleaning it insures that you won’t need to repaint. It is much cheaper to get your property cleaned compared to repainting or replacing it.
The team does a walk around to identify plants that are hyper-sensitive plants like potted plants or freshly planted flowers, trees, and bushes. We may opt to cover sensitive flowers with Tyvek wrap. When a plant is thirsty it immediately drinks in the liquid that lands on it which is why the first thing we do is water all your surrounding plants to quench their thirst and satisfy them with water versus our solution. Plants are watered before, during, and after cleaning. The rinse technician waters the foliage to quench its thirst and then places a protective layer of water on the leaves. We apply our solution and then we rinse the plants a third time, insuring all plants are thoroughly protected from the initial solution application. Once the solution is diluted with water, it is biodegradable leaving behind a safe environment for plants. It is always advisable to run your sprinkler system for 3-5 days in succession after your service, especially during very hot, dry weather. By the time we are done, our solution is as safe as pool water!
No, in fact, 95% of our customers are not home at the time of service. We will send email reminders and instructions about the kinds of things you can do to prepare your property for our arrival. For example please leave your gate and or screened porch unlocked if we are cleaning that area. Move all vehicles away from the cleaning areas. Be sure that all pets have been contained. We will email your invoice after your service has been completed and payment can be made online! Our customers really love our text notifications and pictures of the techs coming to their homes! They know when we are coming as well as leaving and the entire process is digital!
The majority of our customers own a pressure washer which is high pressure and low GPM. This method translates to taking a very, very long time for the homeowner to clean his property. In the wrong hands, a pressure washer can cause extensive damage to a house. Not only that, pressure washers only remove the surface layers of mold, algae, and bacteria, leaving behind spores etched into surfaces to bloom again in a short period of time. Homeowners can purchase low-concentrated solutions from do-it-yourself stores like Home Depot or Lowes. Many times these solutions are not strong enough to get the job done right. We use commercial-grade pressure washers that have multiple connection options to disperse pressure evenly for different applications on hard surfaces like concrete, non-powered brick, and wood. Typically we use soft washing equipment systems which are not available for purchase to the general public. Soft washing uses low-pressure and high GPM sprayers that can reach up to 40-50 feet high. We use highly concentrated solutions and different types of commercial-grade solutions for special applications such as rust removal, oil stain removal, or graffiti removal. We have all the right solutions and equipment, and most importantly know how to get the job done quickly and right. After calculating money spent on machines and products plus your time, energy, and possible body damage… homeowner grade machines are great for washing your car or keeping your exterior surfaces rinsed of dirt for a longer maintained clean after a pro performs an annual deep clean!
