Charlotte makes houses dirty!
In Charlotte there are many environmental elements that tends to make our cars and houses rather dirty and grimey. Below, we investigate some of the top culprits in house grime!
Charlotte has the great luxury of having more trees and multiple arboretum type of areas (not counting The Arboretum – a popular Charlotte shopping center). Pollen in this area typically comes from pine trees but all the trees and shrubbery in the area has the ability to make our houses dirty. Pressure washing, typically on a lower setting, can take care of the pollen collecting on your roof or siding. We also do driveways, walkways and back patios as well.
City Dirt & Dust
Let’s face it, Greater Charlotte is growing fast! With all the new people comes lots of traffic and cars. Areas like Ballantyne, Uptown and even smaller towns like Waxhaw, Matthews and Weddington are growing with enormous speed, houses are popping up everywhere. All the exhaust and dirt kicked up by vehicles has to go somewhere – and usually it ends up on your house and property. Pressure washing can clean all of this away.
Carolina Red Clay
We all know about it here in Charlotte. That messy, sticky, thick red clay that gets over everything. This is the culprit of many hard to clean messes. Power washing services can blast away red clay from siding, driveways and patios.
Mold & Mildew
Do you have a slab concrete back patio? Many of us here in the Greater Charlotte region do. This concrete is notoriously susceptible to black mold and mildew and often the only answer is pressure washing. Using the machine on a high pressure setting is the only way to take care of this nasty problem. Mold and mildew can be a health risk to your family and pets – so often its best to follow up with hot water to make sure to kill all the germs.
