Spring is finally in the air. That means patio lounging, barbecues, sunny vacations and plenty of spring cleaning. With Mother’s Day just around the corner (May 10th!), go the extra mile and treat your mother to a deep home cleaning by a trusted professional.
The home cleaning projects most often neglected are the ones outside the house. Wood decks and patios take a lot of abuse from the elements, leaving them covered in dirt, algae, insects and moisture, which can lead to mold and rotting.
So you should hose it down, right? Wrong.
A hose doesn’t have the pressure needed to fully remove the base layer of dirt and grime. For optimal cleaning, an outdoor wooden fixture or patio should be treated by a trained professional who understands how to properly power wash a surface and refinish with a sealer if needed. A professional washer can make your deck look brand new again.
In addition, pressure washing can be used on vinyl siding to remove dirt and mold that accumulates over time. Having the siding professionally power washed will undoubtedly improve your home’s curb appeal.
If you’re like most homeowners, you don’t clean your windows. With the exception of a quick wipedown of the storm door and front windows, this is a neglected task. Not only does it take time but getting those top-floor panes requires a ladder and maybe you have a fear of heights, or simply just don’t feel like making the effort. A professional window cleaning will make a world of difference for your home. Using professional grade equipment and environmentally-friendly cleaners, a window cleaner can remove 99.9 percent of dust and residue, giving your windows a clean sparkle.
If you really want to impress mom this spring, have the gutters cleaned. During the fall and winter, debris accumulates, causing blockage, mold, deterioration and flooding if not properly maintained. Being the proud do-it-yourselfer you are, you’ll take a stab at cleaning them yourself but will soon realize it’s not as simple as running a leaf blower along the gutter line. There are wet leaves stuck to the bottom, sticks, dirt and a number of indescribables that require specialized equipment to remove.
A professional using wet-dry technology can eliminate all the leaves and sticks on the top, as well as all the wet gunk stuck to the bottom, ultimately creating a free flow of water next time it rains. Rest assured that your backyard won’t turn into a swimming pool during the next spring storm!
