Answering Orlando's Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions
Should I Clean My Fence Before I Paint Or Stain It?
Yes, we recommend cleaning your fence before painting or staining. If you were to paint or stain before cleaning, you would be trapping the dirt underneath, meaning the result of your treatment would not look as wonderful as you expected. Additionally, depending on how much debris is on the surface of your fence, the paint or stain may have difficulty sticking to the material, causing you to need to clean it after all. Thorough cleaning is the best way to prep your surface for any treatment.
How Does Pool Deck Cleaning Make My Property Safer?
There are many ways that cleaning your pool deck is a great way to improve the safety of your family and those that use your pool. One reason an unclean pool deck can be dangerous is due to what could be growing on it. Materials commonly found on decks are things like algae and mold, both of which absorb lots of water, making them slippery. Removing them is the best way to avoid a fall. Also, by maintaining a clean deck, you protect the integrity of your wood from rot, meaning you don't have to worry about your deck giving way under someone's feet.
So That Black Stuff On My Roof Isn't Just Dirt?
No, while you may find dirt on your roof, the commonly found black streaks are generally caused by something else. Gloeocapsa magma is the name for the type of algae that grows on roofs in black or dark green streaks. When you notice these streaks, it is important to hire a professional pressure washing company to perform a roof cleaning. Keeping your roof free of this will help increase the longevity of your roof as well as improve the visual appeal of the affected areas.
What's The Green And Black Stuff Embedded In My Walkways?
Discoloration of concrete surfaces around a property can be very disappointing when you'd like to have the best-looking home possible. Algae and mold can grow on concrete, especially concrete frequently exposed to water. This can lead to staining and dark patches cropping up on walkways and driveways. These spots can really damage the appearance of your concrete surfaces, but luckily, pressure washing makes it an easy fix to restore your pathways and pavers to their former glory.
