Greater Houston Pressure Washing
Over time the harsh Houston weather can wreak havoc on your property and home, slowly robbing it of that glimmer that it once held. Here in Houston our weather has a multitude of factors that help add to the conditions that take from the beauty of your home’s appearance.
Living in the Houston area humidity is one factor that we all know too well. This humidity helps with a couple of these afflictions of the home. Green Algae is typically what we see on our wood or vinyl siding of our homes. Typically this algae is green but it can be black or even brown. It’s caused by the wall being damp a majority of the time, either by a tree that is blocking sunlight not allowing moisture to be evaporated from the area, or quite possibly a faulty or clogged set of gutters allowing water to stream down constantly in one particular area. Using a mild detergent, as to not harm the paint layer, a pressure washer and some elbow grease, this algae can be removed to help your home have that new appearance. This works especially well for vinyl; wood may have some imperfections and is porous, having algae go unchecked for extended periods of time can lead to damage and need of new paint to reseal chips that may occur from algae breaking the seal of the paint coat.
Your sidewalk is another area that gets its fair share of damage from our weather. UV rays, high temperatures and humidity allow black algae to grow on the sidewalks surrounding our homes. Black mold slowly grows over time and darkens the appearance of your sidewalks or patios. Sometimes on areas that have low friction this can cause a slip hazard. We use pressure washers and mild detergents as to not harm the environment surrounding your sidewalks or patios, especially in the case of surrounding flower beds and gardens.
