It’s only natural to take pride in your home. This is why it makes sense to turn to ARC Power washing to give your home the thorough cleaning it deserves. Even if you’re fairly dedicated when it comes to cleaning, there’s always dirt that’s not easy to get out with a simple cleaning. With Soft Washing, with a force similar to that of a garden hose, there are many benefits to using this method on cleaning your home.

Roof Cleaning

Your roof collects dirt and debris throughout the year. Unfortunately, it’s not always convenient to hop up on the roof to clean it. Our contractors use the right combination of water pressure and cleaning agents to remove dirt and mold you see and ground-in dirt that you only notice once it’s gone.

Gutter Cleaning

Gutters can collect everything from leaves to sap. Why struggle with ladders or take a risk of falling when removing debris that’s accumulated in your gutters? With ARC Power washing, your gutters will be free of debris and will be virtually spotless.

Pressure washing gets into areas you can’t easily reach with other cleaning methods. This method of cleaning can also extend the life of your roof and other parts of your home, which also saves you money. If you’re looking to sell your home in the near future, a good pressure washing treatment is likely to boost the resale value of your home, not to mention your overall property value.

Get Rid of Unsightly Stains on Your Roof

Over time, your home’s roof is susceptible to becoming stained by unsightly black streaks. Not only do these unattractive blemishes ruin the curb appeal of your home, but they can also decrease the overall value of the property. Although some people think that these black roof stains are caused by the presence of mold, they are actually the result of an accumulation of algae. The algae effectively feed on the calcium carbonate that the shingles are made from.

Avoid Algae Build Up

If you notice the appearance of algae, it is of the utmost importance that you have the roof cleaned as soon as possible. The moisture-rich environment of the roof is the perfect breeding ground for more algae to develop. In an effort to rid the roof of the unsightly stains, some people opt to pressure wash the roof. Unfortunately, the destructive process of pressure washing makes a bad situation even worse. High-pressure washing is a poor choice because it ruins the integrity of the roof. The structure of the shingles can become damaged in a matter of minutes.
