Maintaining a building’s exterior is just one of the many benefits of regular power washing. And with the weather extremes we experience in Northeast Ohio, be sure to put power washing on your residential or commercial building’s yearly maintenance to-do list.

Over time, the trees, sun, wind, snow, and rain can do a number on a building’s exterior. From the roof to the foundation, dirt, debris, mold, and mildew can collect on the siding and in the gutters and downspouts causing extensive damage.

A yearly cleaning, or twice yearly depending on the location of your home or building, can help you avoid unnecessary and costly repairs and replacements, extend the life of a paint job, and remove health hazards like pollen and mold.

You may have seen those unsightly dark streaks on your rooftop. That’s Gleocapsa magma, algae that forms on shaded and damp areas of the roof and spreads when it rains. Power washing will remove the algae before it has a chance to spread, avoiding the streaks and extending the life of your roof.

Allergy sufferers know that pollen season can be nightmare. The heavy pollen, mold, and mildew can collect on your siding, creating a health concern for your family. Power washing will greatly cut down on the pollen accumulation, and rid your home’s exterior of mold and mildew. Just think, you can open the windows again and enjoy the fresh air.

Before you rent a power washer to tackle the job on your own, consider calling a professional. It is very often cheaper than renting the equipment, and an expert knows just what cleaning solution to use on your particular siding materials to get the best results. A power washer can also be a dangerous tool. It exerts a great amount of force and can cause damage to siding, gutters, and roofing materials if not in trained hands. So sit back, let a professional handle the job, and get a professional result.
