Along with brighter days, warmer temperatures and good feelings, spring also serves as a reminder that it’s time to tend to our homes after a long, harsh winter. This is why in the mid-19th Century, the term “Spring Cleaning” came into common use in England. It wasn’t long before the tradition spread to America. Our ancestors picked up the habit of giving their homes a thorough scrubbing every March, because it was warm enough to open every window, but still not time for the arrival of those pesky flying insects. Also, with their coal furnaces turned off for the year, Americans of an earlier era could remove a winter’s worth of soot from walls and furniture.
America today honors this tradition by celebrating National Spring Cleaning Week at the end of every March. Mike Palubiak owner of Perfect Power Wash likes to remind people at this time of year, that spring cleaning should not stop at the interior walls of a home. Along with dusting shelves and throwing away those old souvenirs from last summer’s cross country road trip, home owners should give the outside of their home a complete spring cleaning too, says Mike.
Perfect Power Wash offers an extensive variety of services that will help get a home’s exterior in top shape this spring. These include power washing driveways, patios, stoops and decks as well as power washing roofs and siding.
The power washing services offered by Mike and his team of highly trained professionals are safe, fast, effective and environmentally friendly. A nationally recognized expert on power washing, Mike helped write standards on this cleaning method for the trade group PWNA, the Power Washers of North America.
With a fleet of 22 state-of-the-art equipped service trucks out on the road, Perfect Power Wash offers unparalleled speed of service. The professionals who staff those vehicles are not only fast, they also know their way around the block when it comes to home exterior cleaning. For example, Mike and his team have power washed the roofs of over 40,000 homes in northeast Ohio. As far as power washing concrete goes, they’ve cleaned over 20 million square feet of driveways, enough to cover 400 football fields.
A call to Perfect Power Wash should be on every home owner’s “Spring Cleaning To Do List.” Mike and his staff are Happy to answer any questions. Here is a brief guide to some of their services:
- ROOF CLEANING – Perfect Power Wash’s exclusive Safe Pressure Soft Wash Roof Cleaning process begins with an application of an algaecide solution. Although safe for people, pets and the environment, this solution is murder on the algae and mold that builds up on roofs (especially as winter turns to spring), leaving unsightly black and green streaks. As a follow up, Mike and his staff add a second application to ensure that these unwanted house guests are completely eliminated. Each application contains a special additive to inhibit future algae growth and keep your roof looking newer, longer.
- DRIVEWAYS AND CONCRETE – Despite its great strength, concrete is a very porous material. When debris and water get trapped in the tiny pores below its surface they can cause considerable damage. Perfect Power Wash protects the concrete in driveways, patios and other areas around the home with a three-step process that begins with the application of a cleaning solution. This is followed by pressure washing and finally by the application of a siloxane sealer. Because it is highly flexible and aligns itself near the top of most porous surfaces, like concrete, siloxane is an ideal shield, protecting against dirt, water and other contaminants while also allowing the concrete to breathe.
- HOME SIDING – Winter is rough on home siding; its winds and storms often bringing contaminants that can become trapped within crevices. Perfect Power Wash’s Safe Pressure House Washing System works to remove debris from all types of siding, from vinyl and aluminum, to brick, wood and stucco. The process includes a double application of biodegradable cleansers to remove contaminants from siding and inhibit future buildup. This is followed by a selective soft bristle brush scrub and Perfect Power Wash’s signature double fresh water rinse
Giving your home’s exterior a spring cleaning with Perfect Power Wash will not only enhance its appearance, it will also protect your family by removing potential health hazards posed by contaminants – and it will save you money too. For example, cleaning your roof should reduce cooling costs in the summer by removing algae, which being dark, absorbs more heat.
Of course, cleaning the exterior of your home can also make you money. According to the National Association of Realtors, power washing a house before putting it on the market can increase its value by up to $15,000.
Turning to the pros at Perfect Power Wash will help you realize the benefits of home exterior cleaning quickly and easily. Using their professional service saves money over less effective do-it-yourself options that call for using rented equipment. It will also let you finish your cleaning faster, which is a good thing, because this will give you more time to get out an enjoy the party nature throws every year around here during our beautiful Northeast Ohio spring.
