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.

Mold and Mildew Prevention

It is very important for you to keep your home free of mold and mildew. Allergies are just a few of the many health problems that have been linked to mold and mildew exposure. When a person inhales mold cells, the immune system will try to destroy those cells. In some cases, the immune system overacts, and that can cause sneezing, runny nose and scratchy throat.

Mold and Mildew Prevention

Mold and mildew exposure may also worsen asthma symptoms. Asthma is a lung disease that causes the airways to constrict. It affects about one in 11 children and one in 12 adults. Asthma symptoms can range from mild to life-threatening.

Additionally, mold and mildew can cause a respiratory infection. Healthy people are not likely to develop a respiratory infection after they are exposed to mold. However, people who have a weakened immune system are at an increased risk for developing a severe respiratory infection.

Fortunately, pressure washing can help prevent mold and mildew from accumulating in your home. Powerwashing is the act of using a mechanical sprayer in order to remove dust, grime and mold from the home. You should contact J&L Professional Services if you want to get your home powerwashed. They have been providing powerwashing services for 15 years.
