Many home improvement companies had a record year in 2020 as families canceled vacation plans and instead invested in their homes. This year, that trend will continue as social distancing recommendations will likely be with us well into the spring and summer.

So if you’re looking to have a home service performed this spring by a professional contractor, it’s best to call now and get on their schedule.

“That’s really good advice,” says Ken Wilson, the founder of the Northeast Ohio-based Pristine Clean. “We were so busy last spring and summer that we were forced to schedule jobs a month out. But if you schedule now, we can get to you as soon as the snow melts.”

To handle the growing volume, Pristine Clean invested in six new trucks this winter, bring its fleet to a total of 19 trucks. Ken and his team also retooled every vehicle with new equipment.

“We upgraded every truck in our fleet with state-of-the-art power washers,” he says. “These are big, beautiful machines with increased water flow so we can rely on more water volume and less pressure to get the job done better, faster and more safely. Our soft-wash system prevents damage to your home that old-school, high-pressure systems can cause.”

In addition to soft-wash power washers specifically designed for siding and roofs, the trucks also feature commercial-grade walk-behind washers for cleaning concrete. “When we clean a home, we really clean it,” Ken adds.

But having your home professionally power washed is about more than aesthetics; it’s also about protecting your investment in your roof, siding and concrete.

Protect Your Siding
Surprisingly, vinyl siding is not completely maintenance-free. Although you don’t have to paint it, you do have to clean it.

“Vinyl siding features a UV coating that prevents it from fading and cracking, but dirt, algae and bacteria break down this coating causing your siding to fade and look chalky. It’s designed to be maintained. We perform a soft-pressure wash using a mild mildewcide, which helps kill the algae, bacteria and other contagions.”

Protect Your Roof
Those black streaks on your roof are not dirt; they’re gloeocapsa magma, an algae that breaks down your roof by feeding off of the limestone granules embedded in the shingles.

“Gloeocapsa magma can reduce the life of your roof system,” Ken cautions. “If you see black streaks on your roof, give us a call. We offer a 100% guarantee to remove all of the algae. We use a soft wash here, too, to avoid damage to your roof. And when that algae comes off, you’ll think you have a new roof.”

Protect Your Driveway
Northeast Ohio’s harsh winters chip away at our concrete sidewalks and driveways. That’s because concrete is porous, so when water penetrates your driveway then freezes, it creates cracking and flaking. But Pristine’s Concrete Clean and Seal protects concrete, brick, and paver surfaces. It includes washing your concrete with a specially formulated detergent and a walk-behind surface cleaner, plus the application of a deep-penetrating, siloxane-based concrete sealant.
