The most important thing for any consumer to know is that wood restoration takes knowledge, skill and experience to do the job correctly. The pressure of a power washer in inexperienced hands can cause irreparable damage in a matter of seconds. The use of pressure like 3,000 PSI to wash can destroy wood and similar surfaces! Using a contractor with experience, knowledge of the right cleaners, and the proper equipment is the most cost-effective way to get the job done. That's why it's important to use an established, experienced contractor like City Clean.

IPE, what is it? Also known as Brazilian walnut, IPE (pronounced ee-pay) wood is typically found in South America and Central America. In recent years this wood has become a popular choice for consumers for several reasons; It’s is one of the densest woods available, which means it’s very durable, it has a natural oil that keeps bugs out, it's resistant to mildew and decay which makes it ideal for humid environments and coastal construction. IPE wood lasts a minimum of 25 years, although many architects say it can last up to 50 years if maintained properly. Your wood needs to be gently washed and oiled on a routine basis. We always apply the product by hand to force it deep into the pores. Due to the wood’s density, we highly recommend repeating this process on a yearly basis.
