The city of Duluth, Georgia is one of several small towns that sit just inside the Atlanta Metropolitan area. Duluth offers several fun attractions, one of which is the Southeastern Railway Museum, where you can explore historic Pullman and other train cars, as well as cabooses and locomotives. Or if you’re a fan of shopping, take a stroll down Main Street and see what shops our picturesque downtown has to offer.
Aqua-Nomics serves families in Duluth and the metropolitan Atlanta area. Visitors to Duluth should take time for dinner at Epicurean Cafe, a historic southern home-turned-restaurant offering southern cuisine and wine tastings, or pull up a chair at Good Word Brewing & Public House for a more casual vibe with microbrews and Latin fare.
Duluth, Georgia Pressure Washing
When researching the best investment for your money with an exterior home cleaning, there are a couple of important things to consider.
Know the difference between Power Washing vs Pressure Washing
Many people hear “pressure washing” and “power washing” and believe that they’re the same thing. And although these terms are sometimes used interchangeably, there is a small but important difference. That difference is hot water.
A pressure washer uses only cold water and relies on the high-pressure to blast stains and dirt from the surface being cleaned. Power washers use a combination of hot water and a variety of specialized pressures (and in some cases detergent) to target the problems with a solution designed specifically for the stain at hand.
Pressure washing equipment is a variety of nozzles, hoses, wands, power washers, detergents and other additives all used together to create the perfect combination of tools for each type of stain or soil. Commercial pressure washing services specialize in knowing exactly what to use where to make your home (or business) shine like the day it was built… Or at least close to it.
Understand the benefits of pressure washing your home
Mold, mildew, and dirt will be gone, leaving your home’s exterior bright and attractive. Not only that, the absence of these common allergens can improve your home’s air quality and ease seasonal discomfort. Removing the build-up of organic material from your siding also extends the life of the material and reduces repair expenses down the road.
This puts a whole new perspective on pressure washing services prices!
Roof Cleaning Servicing Duluth, Georgia
To find a roof cleaning service well-suited for your needs, it’s good to have an idea of a few roof cleaning facts.
Power Washing vs Soft Washing
Soft wash roof cleaning chemicals are mixed, ideally on location, to treat the specific molds, fungi, and stains on each roof. One of the benefits of roof cleaning, if it’s done by a professional, is that the chemicals will be measured and handled carefully to avoid contamination or over-concentration.
Power washing is not meant for shingle cleaning. It looks and sounds simple, but the water pressure scrapes off the limestone granules and protective layers beneath. This can take years off the life of your roof, causing expensive damage and the potential for leaks down the road.
Which Roof Cleaning Products Do You Want?
From oxygen-based products to chlorine bleaches and emulsifiers, the products used to clean your roof will depend on what type of roof you have, what the company uses, and whether or not you want to use non-toxic, eco-friendly, or biodegradable cleaners.
It’s also important to remember that most pressure washing companies calculate the roof cleaning cost per square foot. This ensures that you get exactly what you pay for with labor and with the products they use to clean and treat your roof. So if you pay for a more expensive cleaning solution, you’re only paying for what they use!
Duluth, Georgia Roof Cleaning
Power washing a roof can be done if the roof is metal. Because of the smooth finish, only a light pressure will be needed to remove most or all of the build-up on the metal. We still recommend a soft wash with detergent, even for metal roofs, because this ensures that the molds and mildews will be killed, not just rinsed away to sprout again.
Metal roof cleaning should be done annually for maintenance purposes, adding a deep clean every three to five years to restore the look of the roofing. This extends the life of the roof and the curb appeal of your home!
