Why It’s Best to Hire a Professional Pressure Washing Service

Posted on: December 26th, 2013 by First Coast Home Pros No Comments

pressure washing Jacksonville FLEvery homeowner knows that no matter how much you clean the outside of your home, over time, dirt will accumulate that you just can’t remove on your own. Oil from vehicles and rust from machines or downspouts can stain your driveway. Dirt, mold and mildew can darken your siding and your roof. Decks can age from damage from the sun and rain. These things can make your home look old, tired and undermine your curb appeal. Now there’s no doubt that you will have to deal with this, but many homeowners face the question of how?

A pressure washer is one of the best tools for jobs like this. If you’ve gone to one of those car washes where you hold the hose to rinse off your car, you’ve used a pressure washer before. Pressure washers used at home are usually gas-powered devices that pressurize water and send it through a hose to a wand with a trigger where the user can direct the spray. Sometimes the pressure washer has attachments that are used for adding detergents and many times there are a variety of nozzle tips and attachments to use on the end of the wand. The nozzle tips restrict the water flow making the pressurized water more or less powerful. Some end attachments can be used to pressure wash your driveway in Jacksonville. Used properly, they can clean driveways, siding and decks.

Roof Cleaning Methods Defined and Which is Best

Posted on: December 20th, 2013 by First Coast Home Pros No Comments

roof cleaning JacksonvilleCongratulations on your new home! It’s bright and clean and just what you wanted. But, as we all know, time goes by and things begin to change. With regular maintenance, you should be able to keep your yard and siding looking new, but your roof may begin to develop dark brown or green streaks over time. While some of this is dirt, dust and pollen, much of it is lichen and algae. And while the dirt may wash off the next time it rains, the algae is there to stay. This can make your home look much older and detract from the overall appearance. Not only that, but algae and lichen can shorten the lifespan of your roof, causing you to replace your shingles more often. If you notice your roof beginning to look streaked and dark, you might want to consider roof cleaning Jacksonville FL with First Coast Home Pros.

Cleaning your roof isn’t something you want to make a quick decision about. Many cleaning services offer roof cleaning, but, in many instances, choosing the wrong one can void the warranty on your shingles and even damage the underlayers of the roof. In other cases, strong chemicals can damage the adhesive that holds particles to the shingles and kill the vegetation around your home. Picking the correct method can help lengthen the life of your roof and save you money.

There are three main types of roof cleaning Jacksonville FL and a large debate on which to use.
