Best Time of Year to Clean Your Gutters

Best Time of Year to Clean Your Gutters  You likely don’t give much thought to your gutters on a daily basis, but now is the time of year that you should. Thanks to all the falling leaves, twigs and acorns from the fall, your gutters are becoming clogged by the day. When this happens, water flow is restricted and can cause backups. Your gutters get heavy and can actually start pulling away from the home. Ice dams can develop now that the weather is cold enough for freezing temps. Gutters aren’t there just to provide an aesthetically-pleasing accent for your home; they provide a critical service that keeps your roofs, siding and structural foundations in check. A clear gutter system will divert rain fall [...]

Roof Cleaning for Property Managers, Adult Communities and HOAs

Roof Cleaning for Property Managers, Adult Communities, and HOAs - Soft roof cleaning is the way to go these days. It used to be that traditional power washing was the go-to approach. Now we know that that approach is far too harsh for exteriors. High-power pressure washing can lead to water within your walls, mortar that can be blasted away, gouged wood, and even safety hazards where paint chips are left around the property. If you are a property manager or owner of an adult community or HOA, this is an important consideration when hiring someone to clean your exteriors. High pressure can be as much as 2000-3000 psi while low pressure is between 1250-2000 psi. Low-pressure cleaning is best for roofs, and this [...]

Chandelier Cleaning: Leave it to the Professionals – Chandelier Cleaning Rumson

Chandelier Cleaning: Leave it to the Professionals - There are some things best left to professionals. That is never truer than with chandelier cleaning. Not only are chandeliers highly expensive, they are also highly breakable which requires a steady and polished hand. For that, you need to turn to someone skilled in interior cleaning. Chandeliers are gorgeous lighting fixtures found in larger homes and mansions, business offices, malls, hotels, museums, and more. Giving off a warm glow of opulence, beauty, and grace, chandeliers are desired for their appearance, their ability to give off a lot of light, and for what they represent: wealth and high standards.

What is the Cost of Roof Cleaning? Roof Cleaning Ocean County

What is the Cost of Roof Cleaning? - The maintenance of your roof goes beyond simple repairs when you spring a leak. It also involves cleaning your roof regularly to extend its life span and protect your biggest investment: your house. When you see those ugly dark streaks or algae stains, it’s already too late in many respects: mold, lichen, algae and moss are already attacking your roofing material. These elements tend to proliferate in shady, damp conditions, made easier by overhanging trees. There are alternatives to fixing this other than replacing the roof to the tune of thousands of dollars. A thorough cleaning is usually all that is needed to get your roof looking its best again.

Soft Washing vs. Pressure Washing | Window Washing Holmdel

Soft Washing vs. Pressure Washing - You’ve probably heard these two terms tossed around and assumed they were interchangeable. They certainly do have similarities but while their purpose is the same (to clean the exterior of a home or other building), the method to achieve that is a bit different. Traditional pressure washing uses high-powered jets of water blended with harsh chemicals to remove stains from siding, concrete walkways, decking and the like. Unfortunately, while effective at removing stains, this method can also cause a lot of damage in the process. Because it’s so powerful, it can cause dents and pitting in siding, peel paint from wood, blow window seals, and destroy surrounding landscaping. That’s why the shift is underway for many companies to switch [...]
