Pressure Cleaning in Deerfield Beach

Deerfield Beach is rated as one of the nation’s cleanest places to live. Residents of Deerfield Beach really care about keeping their houses cleaned. Power washing in Deerfield beach houses is a daily activity. Excelsior Power Cleaning is one of the pressure cleaning company that regularly performs pressure cleaning in Deerfield Beach along Parkland, Boca Raton, Coconut Creek, Coral Springs and other cities surrounding.
This week, as the owner of the company, along with my team, we pressure clean two houses in Lob Lolly Lane. The power wash was done on the roofs, driveways, walkways, sidewalks and inside of a two-car garage which was to remove an old sealer paint on the garage floor. The owner of that house, Michael was very satisfied of the result and the care we gave to the job from start to finish. And the price we did the job was unbelievably affordable.

As the owner of this family owned business, I enjoy power clean properties in Parkland, Boca Raton, Coconut Creek, Deerfiled Beach, Coral Springs and the cities surrounding Broward, Palm Beach and Dade Counties. I do not plan on stopping any time soon. So you know that as the owner performing the job, I have to do it to the best of my ability so you can be satisfied to the fullest. That’s the difference when you hire Excelsior Power Cleaning versus a big company that relies on employees. I have many years of experience and I won’t stop until you are completely satisfied. Any concern if you happen to have one, it is fixed right away and free of charge with words of apology.

How to Power Wash A Roof Tips

Read these tips on How to Power Wash A Roof  to make your life smarter and better.

Tip # 1

When operating your power washing equipment wear eye protection, gloves and proper clothing at all times. Test the pressure on a small section and get used to the feel of the force of the jet in your hands. Do not use bleach as it will damage your power washer and the back spray would be landing on your own skin. Use an environmentally safe cleaner instead.

Tip # 2

How to choose your power washing chemicals

There are several options of cleaners that professionals use to clean your roof, but many include bleach. The disadvantage is that bleach will discolor your walls and siding wherever it streaks down, and will also kill any plant or animal life along the way.

If you are looking to pressure wash the roof yourself, consider using an environmentally safe product such as Biocleanse. This is not only important to protect your house and plants, but also for your personal safety because the inevitable back spray from washing will end up on you as well.

A good quality power washing chemical will reduce total cleaning time. Rinse with plenty of fresh water after you are done

Tip # 3

When to  Power Wash your Roof

Power washing your roof will extend its life, and prevent any health hazards from the accumulation of fungus or mildew. Additionally, a moss and fungus covered roof will absorb more heat and therefore increase your utility bills.

The recommended frequency to clean your roof depends on the location of your home. In the northern states roofs can go longer between cleanings but wherever they are exposed to high temperatures and humidity year round, they need to be cleaned at least every three to four years.

Whichever the case, avoid using your power washer if temperatures are near freezing as you may risk damage when the drained water freezes.

Tip # 4

How to Prepare your Roof for Pressure Washing

The first element to consider is the type of power washer that you will use. A regular pressure washer will do a good job, in particular if you add some useful pressure washer attachments such as a 15-degree spray nozzle and a good quality detergent.

If you are looking to speed up the job, however, you will need a flat surface cleaner. Although at an angle, a roof is in fact a flat surface for power washing purposes.

1. Start by cutting away any overhanging or protruding tree branches to allow the roof to receive plenty of sun and aeration.
2. Remove debris and any obstructions from the gutters and make sure that the water will drain freely.
3. Test the power washer on a small section of the roof to make sure that the pressure is adjusted correctly and the spray will not cause any damage to the roofing material.

Depending on the complexity of the job, hiring a professional pressure washing business may be your best bet.


Tip # 5

How to Pressure Wash your Roof

After following the steps for preparation of the job, proceed in two phases. Water pressure under 2000 psi should be sufficient for a quick and efficient job.

*Begin from a corner of the roof and work your way down, from top to bottom.
* Keep the spray at a 45-degree angle with the surface to avoid gouging and move the nozzle in even strokes at a distance of 8 to 10 inches from the roofing material.
* First power wash the entire surface with an environmentally safe soap to remove mold and fungus.
* Don’t let the cleaning solution sit for more than 10 to 15 minutes, particularly if the roof is hot when you are power washing it.
* Next wash everything again with water to remove the grime and residue.
* Finally rinse with plenty of fresh water. If you encounter stubborn stains, attack them with more soap and more water, and if necessary move the power washer over the stain several times.
