Wood Cleaning AA County Maryland

wood cleaning

Looking for a wood cleaning service in AA County Maryland?

Did you know that traditional methods for wood cleaning with pressure uses nothing more than high pressure and water? Also did you know that high pressure does damage to the wood? It’s called “furring” of the wood. It actually looks like fur? It needs to be sanded. Unnecessary damage to the wood, and extra work to make it right. Is there a better safer way to make your deck or fence look new without damaging it? A uniform cleaning of the wood? The answer is Yes!

Our 4 step process for wood cleaning.

First we apply a stripper, if there is already a water sealer, stain, whatever on the wood, or we apply a gentle cleaner on the wood if it’s just grayed old wood with no sealer or stain on it. We let it sit on there for a lil bit and do it’s job. Then the finger nail test to see if there is new looking wood below the cleaner. We wait till desired results. Then we power wash the wood with very low pressure, you can put your hand under it. While the wood is still wet we apply a “brightener” to the wood. What has happened to the wood, durring the gentle cleaning process, is the PH of the wood has changed. To bring the PH back to normal a mild acid is used. It brings the PH back to zero. During the cleaning process a mild caustic was used, and that pulls the tennin out just a lil. What is tennin? That is the dark lines in the wood. I always ask the Home owner to watch this part. It’s like our roof cleaning process, Just like magic the wood brightens right in front of your eyes. Well can’t leave the brightener there, so the final, 4th step, is to gently rinse it off. Brand new wood minus what you wanted to remove. This method provides a uniform cleaning of the wood and NO damage.

Roof Cleaning Anne Arundel County Maryland

roof cleaning beforeThinking about roof cleaning? Does your roof have ugly Black stains on it? Wondering if cleaning your roof is an option versus replacing? Replacing a roof costs thousands, while roof cleaning costs about 10% of what it costs to replace.

Roof cleaning, What is that on your roof?

The black stains are a living organism called gloeocapsa magma. Of course there is moss and lichens too. All living organisms feeding on the limestone in your shingle.

Roof cleaning methods:

There is cleaning a roof with a pressure washer and without a pressure washer. Even light pressure dislodges the granules in the shingle. This method to clean a roof also doesnt really get down into the rooting structure of the organisms eating away at your roof. So this roof cleaning method doesnt last as long. The other method is to kill everything on your roof. This method produces a longer lasting roof and a better looking roof too!
