It’s hard to believe that the July 4th holiday is well in the rearview mirror and summer is almost half over. That means soon we’ll be hearing more about back-to-school and football season, however nontraditionally these pastimes may enter our lives during the Covid-19 pandemic.

It also means now is the time to get moving on important home maintenance services that need to be completed before fall, including pressure washing your siding, cleaning and sealing concrete surfaces, unclogging gutters, and cleaning your windows. You could contact three different companies to tackle these tasks, or just one—Rolling Thunder Window Cleaning and Pressure Washing.

They do it all.

Pressure Washing
“Cleaning your home’s siding is one of the fastest and most affordable ways to make a huge difference in curb appeal,” says Rolling Thunder founder Rick Winrod. “In a single morning or afternoon, we can rid your home of mold, mildew, and algae and make it shine, especially vinyl siding which can lose its luster if not properly cleaned.”

Of course, in the wrong hands a pressure washer can damage your home, concrete, landscaping and more. That’s why it’s best to rely on a seasoned professional.

“We use a soft-wash process to protect your siding, trim, gutters, and shingles,” Rick explains. “And our specially-formulated detergents are safe for your family, pets and flowerbeds. We also clean and seal concrete, including driveways, sidewalks, and patios to protect them from Northeast Ohio’s damaging freeze-thaw cycle. We can even clean those unsightly black streaks off your roof.”

Every Rolling Thunder technician is trained and experienced in pressure washing, and arrives with all of the leading-edge equipment required to get the job done safely and effectively.

Gutter Cleaning
One of the most dangerous jobs in all of home maintenance is gutter cleaning. Climbing an extension ladder and reaching some distance to remove gunk and debris can easily result in a life-altering fall. It’s just not worth it.

“Our team is trained and experienced in ladder safety,” Rick assures. “We go up and down ladders more times in a single week than most homeowners do in years.”

Clean gutters are essential to protecting your home’s basement and foundation from overflowing water. “We don’t just clean the gutters,” Rick says. “We get into the nooks and crannies, the twists and turns, and we even clean the downspouts. It’s more complicated than people think.”

Window Cleaning
You know the old joke, “We don’t do windows,” well, Rolling Thunder does. In fact, the organization was founded as a window cleaning company before expanding into other home maintenance services.

“Summer is beautiful in Northeast Ohio,” Rick points out, “and you don’t want the view of the summer sky or your landscaping and gardens to be ruined by dirty, hazy windows. It’s surprising the difference clean windows can make, especially if they haven’t been cleaned for a long time. Your entire home is lighter, brighter and feels so fresh.”

Rolling Thunder is big enough to tackle almost any cleaning job—commercial or residential—but it’s small enough that Rick can typically charge less than the big guys. “We keep our overhead low, we don’t have to pay franchise fees, and we don’t spend a bunch of money on advertising,” he explains. “We like to keep our costs down so our services are affordable for everyone.”

The Rolling Thunder Window Cleaning offices are located at 33480 Liberty Parkway in North Ridgeville, and the company services homes throughout Northeast Ohio. For more information or to receive a free estimate, call 440-897-6317. The website is
