Clean Your Deck Before Inviting Guests

Clean Your Deck Before Inviting Guests

Cool evenings are perfect for Fall gatherings and a clean deck is needed for entertaining.

Fall parties on your deck or patio in Hagerstown, MDSeptember is here and it’s the time for outdoor gatherings on your deck or patio. Warm days and cool evenings create the perfect atmosphere in the Tri-state area for hosting friends and family. The smell of cookouts and the glow of patio lights will fill the air for the next two and half months. It’s what many people long for following the scorching hot days of summer. This idea of hosting such an event is an easy decision for most homeowners. However, if the deck is not clean, it could put a damper on the excitement to invite guests over to gather.

Many people don’t even look at their deck closely until this time of year. Then they scramble to make it presentable.

Wood deck in need of pressure washing by Complete Power Wash in Hagerstown, MDDoes your deck or patio have ugly stains hiding the wood or composite decking’s beauty? If so, just know that these dark areas can be more than the difference between a beautiful or unsightly outdoor living space. And while these stains do take away from your deck’s beauty, the real problem may not present itself for many years. These stains are much like the symptoms of disease that are there for years before death. The cause of those stains can lead to costly damage, because they are the result of harmful elements. That buildup of grime, mildew and algae can break down the deck materials.

The good news is that the cleaning professionals at Complete Power Wash in Hagerstown, MD are the Tri-state area’s deck cleaning experts.

 

Safely Cleaning Your Deck is the Right Choice

The pressure washing experts at CPW have years of training in the proper cleaning of deck materials, hardscapes and other exterior surfaces. They use the softwash cleaning technique, ensuring your surfaces will be cleaned safely. Softwash is a combination of gentle water pressure and environmentally-Pressure washed deck by Complete Power Wash in Hagerstown, MDsafe detergents. This approach is the best for thoroughly cleaning with no threat of damage to wood, composite decks or patio materials. Amateur pressure washers likely won’t take this approach.

Many amateurs think you can just “blast away” grime on patio blocks and concrete. That’s a bad assumption, because block can break under intense water pressure and concrete can scar, like a knife in hot butter. This damage is costly to a homeowner, especially if the “cheaper option” is not insured. The Complete Power Wash techs are trained to clean the right way with the right products. 

CPW’s cleaning experts will also assess your other building materials in need of cleaning. Failure to remove grime can shorten the life of siding, fences, outbuildings, etc….

CPW Pressure Washes Commercial Buildings

Commercial buildings get dirty and ugly and reflect on a company’s image.

commercial power wash on a Hagerstown, MD restaurantBusinesses have reputations. Those reputations are built on image and customer relations. Much of that image is found in the physical location the company calls home. An online business has to make sure everything looks good and works on its website and a bricks-and-mortar business has to make sure the façade is clean and inviting.

Clean bricks, walkways, signs and windows are the perfect way to invite new customers into your showroom. People make judgements in fewer than three seconds. Make sure they want to come in and have a great experience from the fourth second forward. Existing customers also like to enter through a clean entrance.

Softwash Cleans Your Commercial Building Safely

Most people think the best way to clean through pressure washing is to use high-powered water pressure and blast away the dirt and grime. While this can work, it will often blast away part of the surface too. This can be costly, because replacing building materials is never cheap.

Softwash pressure washing by Complete Power Wash in HagerstownSoftwash is the technique of using “just the right water pressure,” combined with gentle, environmentally-friendly detergents. These detergents are used to weaken the grip of dirt, mold, mildew and other natural elements. Once the detergent takes affect, the technician can gently wash away the grime.

The most-costly pressure washing damage is done by inexperienced technicians. Common mistakes in the pressure-washing world include the scarring of wood, concrete and siding. Commercial pressure washing equipment and personal use machines have enough power to blast into the hardest of building materials, not to mention flesh and bone. Once lines are carved into driveways, bricks, fences, etc…, a building professional will likely have to fix the damage.

The Foundation of the Independence Day Celebration

Did You Know: On July 4, 1776, the thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States. The colonies and England had already been at odds for a year when the colonies convened a Continental Congress in Philadelphia in the summer of 1776. In a June 7th session in the Pennsylvania State House (today it is called Independence Hall), Richard Henry Lee of Virginia presented a resolution with the now-famous words:

“Resolved: That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent states, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.”

These words led to the drafting of a statement presenting to the world the colonies’ case for independence. Members of the committee included John Adams of Massachusetts, Roger Sherman of Connecticut, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, Robert R. Livingston of New York and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia. The drafting of the actual document — The Declaration of Independence — was given to Jefferson.

On July 1, 1776, the Continental Congress reconvened, and on the following day, the resolution for independence was adopted by 12 of the 13 colonies. The process of revision continued through all of July 3 and into the late afternoon of July 4, when the Declaration was officially adopted. Today, the original copy of the Declaration is housed in the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence. The tradition of it being a patriotic celebration became even more widespread after the War of 1812, in which the United States again faced Great Britain. In 1870, the U.S. Congress made July 4th an unpaid federal holiday. It became a paid federal holiday in 1938.

Independence Day Trivia

  1. Only John Hancock actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. All the others signed later.
  2. The Declaration of Independence was signed by 56 men from 13 colonies. Each could have been tried for treason had the revolution failed, losing their lives and their family property.
  3. The average age of the signers of the Declaration of Independence was 45. The youngest was Thomas Lynch, Jr (27) of South Carolina. The oldest delegate was Benjamin Franklin (70) of Pennsylvania. The lead author, Thomas Jefferson, was 33.
  4. The only two signers of the Declaration of Independence who later served as President of the United States were John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.
  5. The stars on the original American flag were in a circle so all the Colonies would appear equal.
  6. The first Independence Day celebration took place in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776. This was also the day that the Declaration of Independence was first read in public after people were summoned by the ringing of the Liberty Bell.
  7. The White House held its first 4th of July party in 1801.
  8. Presidents John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe all died on July 4th. Adams and Jefferson (both signed the Declaration) died on the same day within hours of each other in 1826.
  9. In 1776, there were 2.5 million people living in the new nation. Today the population of the U.S.A. is 326 million.
  10. Fireworks are part of the tradition of celebrating this national holiday. More than 250 million pounds of fireworks will go up in smoke in 2018.
  11. Grilling food is also big on Independence Day. Approximately 150 million hot dogs are consumed on this day.
  12. Every 4th of July, the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia is tapped (not actually rung) thirteen times in honor of the original thirteen colonies.

Mulch is Culprit for Black Dots on Your House

Mulch is Culprit for Black Dots on Your House

Shotgun Fungus is among the toughest challenges for homeowners and pressure washing companies.

Shotgun Fungus live in mulch and shoot the black dots onto exterior wallsHomeowners love to add mulch to flower beds this time of year. It makes the house look great. But beware, because not all mulch is the same. Pressure washing techs can clean nearly every tough stain on a house, sidewalk, roof, fence, etc…. One of the toughest stains to clean are the little black dots that show up days or weeks after mulch is put down. If you’ve seen these on your home, you’ve likely tried scraping them off with a fingernail until your fingers hurt. And finally, just short of tearing off a nail, gave up in frustration. The best advice is to prevent the fungus from attaching and then spreading.

What Are These Black Dots?

Artillery fungus or Shotgun Fungus on houses in the greater Hagerstown, MD area.“Shotgun” fungus — also known as Artillery Fungus — originates in mulch. Its name is from the Greek word for “spear thrower,” because of how the black spores are propelled from the ground onto the siding. The spores can launch up to 20 feet high. They will stick to any surface. The spores aren’t harmful, but are extremely difficult to remove.

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to know which mulch is affected. It’s a common misconception that more expensive mulch will be fungus free, or that cheap mulch is more prone to having the fungus. Artillery fungus can infect any organic mulch, and under the right conditions, it will flourish and create a pesky problem. Artillery fungus thrives in cool, moist, shady areas. If you have the telltale black dots on your home, you will notice that they are located above mulched areas where the fungus has shot their spores. In Maryland, the fungus is actively shooting spores for approximately two weeks each year.

Inspection is Better than Cleaning

The obvious solution is found in the wise saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” When adding mulch, routinely inspect your home’s exterior after putting it down. As soon as you see the black dots, remove it immediately. After that, you can replace it; remove it and allow it to “season” and put it back; and/or add mushroom compost to the mulch. None of these options has a complete guarantee, but the compost has been shown greatly reduce the fungus’ action.

“I once sprayed my foot by accident. At the emergency room they told me they see three or four pressure washer accident victims a week. The surgeon said, ‘I can’t believe you didn’t do more damage than that.’ I must also add that this was a pretty powerful machine; it’s 4000 PSI and I had it locked on full throttle.”

They do May pressure washing to be ready for summer fun in Hagerstown, MD.This poem by William Hamilton Hayne (1856 – 1929) paints a beautiful picture of this time of year.
