Questions & Answers
Q: What advice would you give to a customer looking to hire a company like yours?
A: I would say, educate yourself. For example, when it comes to roof cleaning and powerwashing, there is a right way to do it and a wrong way. Unfortunately many companies don't take the time to learn the right way. The damage that can be done to your roof and property can be pretty great. Expertise and experience count. Find a company who will take the time to explain the how, and why of what they do. Taking the time to educate you. Don't go with someone who is pushy and all about, closing the job and getting it done. A good company will have plenty of work in our area, and won't be desperate for work. Which brings us to the next thing. Plan ahead. Try to schedule your window cleaning, power washing, roof cleaning at least 3 weeks before you need it. This way you can wait for the good companies to come. The new guys in the industry are usually not booked up, and so if you are in a rush you often get one of the new guys, who are still learning and making mistakes. You don't want someone, learning on your property, as this can become costly. Having said that, many companies, like ours can accommodate rushed needs on a limited bases, by moving other customers who are not in a hurry, and/or moving commercial projects that are not time sensitive. It is still a lot easier both for the companies, and you if you can plan ahead and schedule early. I would recommend looking at reviews. Actually, not just reviews, but also are there video testimonials? Some companies make fake reviews, but having real customers in front of their home tell you about their experience helps, as these would be much harder to fake. Do they have a guarantee? Well every company these days seems to have some guarantee, but what is that guarantee really? Ours for example is simply put if you are not thrilled with our service or our work you won't pay. Right up to $5000 worth of work. Our guarantee is your happiness. You will be happy with our work, or you won't pay a dime. Any company can mak

Q: What is the most common type of project or service your company provides?
A: We about evenly provide the following services: Window Cleaning House Washing Roof Cleaning We also do a fair share of Gutter Cleaning

Q: In what ways is your company environmentally friendly?
A: We choose products that won't harm the environment. For example the solution we use for window cleaning has the earth friendly seal, and is approved for use in L.E.E.D buildings. It also is the only solution that was built from the ground up to leave your windows clean longer. On the powerwashing side, all of our products are environmentally benign. From the "Eco House & Roof wash" surfactant we use, to the active ingredient, it contains nothing that will harm the environment. Some companies are still using TSP, and other products like that that contain Phosphates that harm our environment. Others are treating roofs with solutions that put heavy metals into the environment. Not only is this against what the roof manufacturers instruct on cleaning, it is also environmentally irresponsible. Additionally, we as a company recycle where possible. Our washing process uses far less water than traditional blast away pressure washing. We try to quote using, google, bing, zillow, and other sources where we can get a clear view and save driving out to the many homes we quote each week. We also strive to keep our routing tight to use as little fuel as possible, and reduce our carbon footprint.

Projects  
Project Image 1 Window Restoration - Acid Damage Removal  

Years ago before the new owners took over this historic DC Building, someone had washed the building with acid. In the process they severely etched the windows. These curved historic windows, would have cost a mint to replace in an historically accurate manor. When they were doing the renovation years ago they contacted over 30 companies to find someone to fix the windows. Everyone told them it couldn't be done. When we were hired to clean the buildings windows, I offered to restore the windows. They were surprised to learn that we could do this, after they had been told it wasn't possible. The etching was so severe your fingernail would catch on the ridges from where the acid had etched. We literally sanded the damage out then buffed out the window to a new distortion free, like new, finish. The customer was thrilled as were the office staff, who could now see out of their windows. We restored over 20 windows like this.
Project Image 2 Slate Roof Cleaning  

Years ago, Slate never got the black streaks on it, so why do they get it now? Gloeocapsa Magma, a big name for a small algae organism. The streaks are from an algae that feeds on limestone. So why has it only recently become a problem? Asphalt shingle manufactures about 20 years ago changed the formula to take asphalt out of the shingles. They replaced some of the asphalt with limestone so the shingles would still have enough weight. They also provided a food source for this algae. The algae then migrated up from the florida area where they have had it for 60 plus years. Now it could survive the winters. Once up here the algae discovered it could also feed on slate roofs too.

How do you clean a slate roof? Well it is a little different than asphalt roofs. If you used the exact same method as an asphalt roof you could actually cause discoloring in the slate. You also don't want to use any high pressure means to clean it. We are experts in getting great damage free results.
Project Image 3 House Washing - Green to Clean  

This customer thought he was going to have to paint. After we washed his siding and painted areas, he decided it could wait a few years.

We love make stuff clean!
Project Image 4 Slippery concrete? Not anymore  

Not only can our cleaning of your concrete surfaces make things look way better, it can also improve grip. Dirty concrete, especially if it has some green growth on it, can be slippery when wet. Our cleaning removes it, makes it look good, and returns the grip. Don't slip :-)
Project Image 5 Are your windows Dirty? These were.  

Sometimes the windows are so dirty that we are even amazed at the difference.
How We Charge For Our Services
Deck or Porch - Clean, Seal, Stain or Waterproof
- $0.75 to $3.00 per square foot
We don't strip, or stain decks, we just clean them. Our cleaning process is designed not to strip any stain present.

These variables combine to create the pricing.

Gutter Cleaning
- $135.00 to $489.00 per cleaning
We look at several factors like how many ladder sets are needed, House / Building height, The tree coverage in the area, whether or not their are gutter guards, and other access issues. We charge more if there are gutter guards present because they make cleaning much harder.

Pressure Washing - Commercial
- $150.00 to $400.00 per hour
We leverage very high end professional equipment to accomplish in an hour what other companies often take 6 hours to do with lesser equipment.

Peaks, valleys, hips, pitch, square footage, safety considerations, landscaping, ladder sets etc. We warranty every roof we do, and often return within 3 months to rinse down lichen that have now died and can be rinsed without pulling roof granulars off. We have some of the most experience of any company in the area. Our owner is an instructor and has taught many of the companies in the are and nationally how to safely and properly clean a roof.

Window - Washing and Cleaning
- $5.50 to $12.00 per pane (inside and outside)
We offer different levels of service: basic, deluxe, premium. We look at the project as a whole and have built a sophisticated quoting software that takes many factors into account.
