Power Washing in Burke, Virginia
Northern Virginia is a lovely place to live, but Burke residents know that the harsh winter, rainy year after year. Luckily, the beautiful aesthetic of your home is still there, it’s just hidden under a layer of dirt, algae or maybe even both. When the time comes for a house washing or roof cleaning, Shine Select is the go-to professional in Burke, VA.
Why Should Burke Homeowners Choose Shine Select for House Washing and Roof Cleaning?
Shine Select has experience house washing and roof cleaning for residents across Burke, VA. For tough staining, our power washing methods eliminate even the most stubborn marks. Not all areas of the home can stand up to high pressure cleaning, however. If your home could use cleaning on delicate surfaces, we can make sure it gets taken care of without any damage whatsoever. Our Soft Washing method allows us to dial the pressure back and relies instead on a careful selection of bio friendly cleaners to make stains disappear. This protects windows and siding during a house washing and prevents the risk of voiding your roof’s warranty during a roof cleaning.
Which Surfaces Does Shine Select Clean?
Between our standard house washing and Soft Wash methods, we can ensure the following areas are squeaky clean with no damage whatsoever:
- Asphalt Shingle
- Wood Shake
- Aluminum Siding
When is it Time for a House Washing?
If your home has any combination of black spots, green algae-like growth, or discoloration, it is time for a power washing. Most likely, those substances are mildew, algae, bacteria, mold, or a mixture of each!
When the conditions are right for any of these substances to grow, which they often are here in Burke, they absolutely will continue to do so. In the short term, that means homeowners must deal with infestations promptly. In the long term, your home and the areas surrounding it can easily become damaged and weathered.
When is it Time for a Roof Cleaning?
Any type of new growth on your roof is also a sign that it is time for a roof cleaning. In Burke, VA, the main factors that will determine the necessary frequency of roof cleanings are:
- Amount of rainfall
- Amount of shade surrounding your home
- Accumulation of debris
- Accumulation of snow
Why Should You Avoid Delaying Your Roof Cleaning and House Washing?
Don’t put off power washing your Burke, VA home! Here are five reasons to schedule your roof cleaning and house washing with Shine Select Today:
Extend the life of your home’s exterior. The unsightly growth we notice on the exterior of our homes can actually slowly eat away at their surface over time. Routine power washing can extend their lifespan greatly depending on the conditions and moisture of your location.
Boost curb appeal. After a morning or afternoon of power washing, your home will look the best it has since the day you moved in!
Keep yourself safe. Mold, fungus, mildew, and algae are all allergens that can worsen your outdoor experience. If left to grow, they can even trigger symptoms indoors assuming growth spreads from your roof to your attic.
Homeowner’s insurance compliance. Homeowner’s insurance usually covers damage incurred to roofs. Damage may not be covered if your insurer suspects that it only occurred in the first place by ignoring infestations or avoiding general maintenance.
Improve energy efficiency. If a home’s exterior blackens over time due to algae growth, it will absorb more solar energy from the sun and heat up your home as a result.
