Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered by Property Shine Cleaning and Restoration

Why Should I Have My Concrete Surfaces Sealed?

Concrete is a porous material. This means that your concrete is made up of thousands of little pores that dirt, grime, and other contaminants can get into if your concrete isn't properly protected. By ensuring your concrete is sealed, you're protecting the pores of your concrete from various contaminants.

Concrete sealers are applied to concrete to protect it from surface damages, corrosion, and staining. Most concrete sealers also work as water repellents. These sealers eliminate or reduce the penetration of water and soluble contaminants, such as chlorides, into the porous concrete layer.

Before applying a concrete sealer, you want to ensure your concrete is clean. Pressure washing is a great way to keep your concrete clean and in great shape. Once the water used in pressure washing is dried, you can apply the sealant. The experts at Property Shine Cleaning and Restoration will ensure that your concrete sealer is properly applied, no matter the project.

What Are Those Black Streaks On My Roof?

Black streaks on your roof are likely the result of an algae called gloeocapsa magma, more commonly known as blue-green algae or black algae. Gloeocapsa magma travels as spores on the wind. Once it lands on your roof, it finds a shaded, cool spot to start growing. As gloeocapsa magma expands, it starts to look like black or dark green streaks on your roof.

While algae isn't harmful to your roof for short periods of time, if left to its own devices it can break down the UV protection layer on your roof. The good news is that cleaning away gloeocapsa magma is a fairly simple process. The pressure washing experts at Property Shine Cleaning and Restoration offer professional roof washing to fight against the gloeocapsa magma on your roof.

The professional soft washing process used in our roof washing will break down the gloeocapsa magma before washing away the remaining spores to leave your roof clean and clear of gloeocapsa magma.

How Often Should I Have My House Washed?

Professional pressure washers agree that you should invest in a professional house washing at least once every year. However, once a year might not be enough depending on where your home is located. If you notice dirt, grime, or build up on your home, it's a good idea to set up a professional house washing before a year has passed.
