Why Use Professional Deck and Patio Cleaning Services?
Decks and patios take a beating in the Texas sun. Poorly maintained decks and patios will deteriorate and become damaged; just hope that your loved ones or guests are not standing on it when the worst occurs. When it comes time to stain or seal your outdoor surfaces, give it a good pressure washing first to ensure no dust or debris becomes trapped underneath. This can compromise the performance of the stain and cause moisture to gain access to the material below. Plus, a clean surface is always the easiest to work with when it comes to paint or stain.
Those Texas UV rays will weather and fade your decking, especially if it is made of wood. The deck color turns gray and it becomes vulnerable to the elements that can wear it down and cause it to deteriorate prematurely. Eventually, this will result in the need to repair or replace the deck which can carry a hefty price tag.
Pressure washing your deck brings other benefits. There are potentially damaging substances that can foster, grow, and spread on decks and patios during hot, humid, or wet weather. These bacteria can put people at risk for both a nasty slip or fall due to the slick surface as well as the propensity to cause respiratory illness from exposure to toxic mold, mildew, and algae.
Stops the Spread of Bacteria and Disease
The inherent purpose of a pool deck is what makes it most vulnerable to the growth of bacteria and mold. The excess pool water that can get sprayed, puddled, and spread across the deck carry bacteria, and in some instances, harmful bacteria. The longer this excess water can sit and pool on your deck, the more growth and spread of bacteria is likely. Certain bacteria can lead to illness and disease, making an unkempt and ill maintained pool a significant health risk.
Regular cleaning and maintenance of your pool deck resolves this issue. Having the deck pressure washed routinely removes the bacteria via hot water and removes any residue like mildew or algae with high pressure methods.
Prevent Slip and Fall Accidents
The reason your pool deck becomes slick and slippery is due to a build-up of algae and bacteria. Debris, dirt, grime, and pollen can also contribute to making the surface of your pool deck a major fall hazard. Reduce the risk of accidents, falls, and injuries by having the pool deck cleaned professionally regularly. It is that simple to create a safer environment for everyone who uses or crosses your pool deck and surrounding area.
Boost Curb Appeal
Did you know that pressure washing your house can improve your family’s health and well-being? Protect your family by pressure washing surfaces that can become slippery when left unmaintained, resulting in falls and subsequent injuries. Also, improve the air that they breath by removing toxic mold and mildew that can cause respiratory distress when left untreated.
Prevent Deck Erosion
Mold, mildew, bacteria, and algae can cause damage to your home and compromise your property value. Over time, these substances can create permanent stains that take away from your entire property. These spots may also require expensive repairs if you ever choose to resell your property. Preserve your investment with professional pressure washing.
Walls and Landscaping Cleaning
Over time, your retention walls, garden edging and other landscaping structures can take a beating. They are isolated and mainly close to the ground, which allows them to be constantly exposed to the elements and sediments embedded in the soil. This creates a perfect environment for green and black algae to grow. If not treated, the next level of organic growth starts to form. These micro-plants are called lichen, and appear as small green/black dots the size of a dime. They eat the algae and root themselves into the surface, which can result in cracking and ultimately collapse the structure. Activate Pressure Washing uses a penetrating eco-friendly solution to break the algae barrier and remove the lichen down to the root. By using this safe technique, we are able to restore the surface and prevent organic growth from returning.
