A low water pressure method of cleaning organic stains from the roof for increased curb appeal. This is especially valuable before listing the house for sale. In Montgomery County, MD it is common to see stains and streaks on the roof. In Silver Spring, for example, there are many wooded areas which in combination with warm wet weather mold, algae and fungus thrive. We provide a chemical cleaning with little run off to remove the organics. We also bag the downspouts and capture any runoff during the cleaning. However, this is minimized by our low-pressure application equipment which allows Carlton Cleans, LLC to apply the cleaning mix to the roof in low volume to kill the organics.
Adding Curb Appeal
Exterior House Wash:
Our exterior house washing service is an application of our house cleaning mix, dwell and rinse with hot water. We provide cleaning of siding, brick and composite siding; We do not use the pressure washer close to the surface of the house. We apply the hot water far enough from the house to “shower the surface” after the cleaning mix has pulled the dirt from the surface. The cleaning is performed by the cleaning mix and volume of water verses pressure. We provide an effective cleaning method without causing damage to the surface.
If you are having your house painted than a house wash is a must service for better paint adhesion and longevity. Many painting companies will offer a house wash service before painting. However, they often do not provide a quality service due to lack of experience and proper equipment. House washing is a necessary evil to the painting companies, and they rarely invest the necessary resources to the task.
Gutters typically need to be cleaned inside and out to maintain good water flow and keep the typical white gutters from turning black. The black marks on the exterior of the gutters are from air pollution, tree dirt and roof runoff. The black marks are oxidized into the surface and can only be cleaned by hand with specific cleaners for the task because of oxidization layer has to be broken. The cleaners are strong, and ladders are needed to access the gutters. We do not recommend homeowners try to clean their own gutters.
We offer a chemical low-pressure cleaning and high-pressure cleaning depending on the situation and state of the surface. Hot water is used in the cleaning.
