Last week, my wife and I brought our outdoor furniture out of the garage and set it up under our “veranda.” That’s the fancy name we give our back porch. I texted a photo of the furniture to my kids with the caption, “Spring is here!”

My son-in-law texted back, “Looks great. Now sanitize it so we can come over.”

He was right. Although we currently don’t allow our kids and grandkids in the house, we do occasionally hang out outside and yell at each other from 10 feet away. But is that even safe? What about the siding, the gate, the deck, the basketball goal, the playset?

Darn it, I’m ready. How do I clean everything?

One answer is a house pressure washing from Pristine Clean.

“We’re usually busy this time of year because homeowners want to wash away mold, mildew and winter grime,” says Pristine Clean founder Ken Wilson. “But right now the phones are ringing off the hook because of the added protection during the pandemic. Plus, it’s spring. Families want to be outside and they want a clean, attractive, safe environment around them.”

High-Tech Equipment
Volume is up so much that Ken has added four more trucks to his fleet to handle the increasing demand.

“All of our trucks are custom-outfitted with the most advanced equipment—exactly what we need to do our best work, including soft-pressure wash systems specifically designed for siding and roofs, as well as commercial-grade walk-behind washers for cleaning concrete. When we clean a home, we really clean it. The results are profound.”

But having your home professionally power washed is about more than looking good; it’s also about protecting your investment in your roof, siding and concrete—and your family.

Protect Your Siding
Surprisingly, vinyl siding is not completely maintenance-free. Although you don’t have to paint it, you do have to clean it.

“Vinyl siding features a UV coating that prevents it from fading and cracking, but dirt, algae and bacteria break down this coating causing your siding to fade and look chalky. It’s designed to be maintained. We perform a soft-pressure wash using a mild mildewcide, which helps kill the algae, bacteria and other contagions.”

Protect Your Roof
Those black streaks on your roof are not dirt; they’re gloeocapsa magma, an algae that breaks down your roof by feeding off of the limestone granules embedded in the shingles.

“Gloeocapsa magma can reduce the life of your roof system,” Ken cautions. “If you see black streaks on your roof, give us a call. We offer a 100% guarantee to remove all of the algae. We use a soft wash here, too, to avoid damage to your roof. And when that algae comes off, you’ll think you have a new roof.”

Protect Your Driveway
Northeast Ohio’s harsh winters chip away at our concrete sidewalks and driveways. That’s because concrete is porous, so when water penetrates your driveway then freezes, it creates cracking and flaking.

But Pristine’s Concrete Clean and Seal protects concrete, brick, and paver surfaces. It includes washing your concrete with a specially formulated detergent and a walk-behind surface cleaner, plus the application of a deep-penetrating, siloxane-based concrete sealant.

Protect Your Family
The same process that kills molds and mildew also eradicates other microscopic organisms, Ken says, including those that can make you and your family ill. Plus, Pristine Clean has implemented a 100% no-contact system, from your initial quote, through performance of the service, to paying your final invoice.

“Our goal is always to protect our employees and our clients while we do our duty to clean up our communities. Thanks to new technologies—from our advanced over-the-phone quote system to emailed invoices—we can do both.”
