Gutter cleaning and vinyl cleaner Cicero, Cook County

Have you taken a look at your siding lately especially on the north side? You may discover that it is covered with green and black stuff. That stuff is actually algae, mildew and mold!  Those organisms are alive and it can create an unhealthy environment for your family and pets, not to mention they are destroying the appeal of your property. They release air borne spores into the air. That is how they got there to begin with. We are seeing more and more of this in Cicero and surrounding communities in Cook and other collar counties.

The good news is that these invaders can be safely removed by a process called soft washing. This process is quite different and preferred over the conventional pressure washing and power washing. Go here to read more on the differences. This non-pressure washing system uses a specially formulated cleaner that not only cleans the dirt and discoloration off the gutters and siding, but more importantly remediates the organisms causing the ugly stains. The same process is used to clean aluminum, vinyl and Dryvit siding. Furthermore, it is also used to clean the same organisms and ugly stains off of roofs, patios, driveways and sidewalks.

Cedar Roof and Siding Cleaning in Elgin, Kane County Illinois

Cedar Roof and Siding Cleaning in Elgin, Kane County Illinois

The owners of this house were almost convinced that their cedar shake roof was beyond cleaning and would need to be replaced. Unfortunately most people don’t realize cedar shake roofs, as well as siding, needs to be periodically cleaned.  A properly maintained cedar roof will last at least forty years. The cedar shingles had dark gray, black and greenish colors.  The green spongy organisms that were growing on the cedar roof were moss. These are signs that the roof was overdue for a cleaning.

Cedar does not rot on its own. Rot is caused by continual moisture combined with moss, mold, mildew, lichen, or fungi. If these organisms are not removed in a timely fashion, the cedar roof will not live its expected life span resulting in a major expense for the home owners.

The good news for these home owners was that we were able to preserve the cedar roof by cleaning it. Our non-pressure cleaning process stopped the deteriorating condition by removing all the infestations.  We do not use pressure washers as they tend to damage the cedar. The cedar shakes were returned to their intended functioning condition.  This saved the owners some serious money. The cost of the treatment was less than 5% of what it would have cost to replace the roof.
