Why Hire Us?
More often than not, if you hire someone who is not qualified or “does this on the side”, this is what you could end up with.

We want you to choose the right company for your needs, so here are some things to consider when comparing companies.
Are you licensed in the state of Maryland for home improvements?

Do you use a low-pressure system to prevent water from entering behind the siding?

Do you use soaps that are not harmful to plants?
YES, our house washing products have a neutral pH and are safe for vegetation.
Do you have the proper knowledge of wood restoration and sealing?
YES, our employees have gone through many hours of professional training.
Do you neutralize the wood after cleaning and/or stripping?
YES, this is a crucial step in the restoration process.
What types/colors of sealers are available to me?
We have several professional grade products to choose from and we will evaluate each job and make recommendations based on your needs at that time.
Do you use a sprayer or hand-apply the sealer to the wood?
Both, dependent on the best application for each job at hand.
What pressure do you use to clean the wood?
Under 1,000 PSI to avoid damaging the woods surface.
Will the cleaning solutions that you use be harmful to my plants, children or pets?
We have spent a great deal of time perfection our solutions to make them safe for your plants, children and pets. With any type of cleaning solution, there is some risk involved if not properly used and that is why we are trained in chemical safety and handling and carry the OSHA requires M.S.D.S. (Material Safety and Data Sheets) on every job site.
Is the pressure of your machine going to damage my siding, brick, wood or any thing else?
NO. We use a soft wash or low pressure system that is designed to limit your properties exposure to high pressure washing. House washing is typically kept under 500 psi (pounds per square inch) and wood restoration under 1000 psi. This is done with the use of cleaning solutions that kill 100% of the mold and mildew. They also remove pollution buildup, pollen and insect webs and droppings.
Do we bring our own water?
We generally use the client’s water due to the excessive weight of hauling the water on our trailer mounted units. An average sized house will only use about $3.00 worth of water.
