Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered By Steady Flow PowerWash LLC

What Are Those Black Streaks on My Roof?

The black streaks on your roof are algae. There are many contaminants you have to worry about damaging or discoloring your roof - soot, mold, dirt, and mildew, but algae are the culprit when it comes to those hideous black streaks. Algae is easily transferred through the wind from other homes and environmental areas surrounding your home. It quickly builds-up if not cleaned properly to form those streaks you see on your roof. Roof cleaning and pressure washing in Mt. Juliet are wise investments for maintaining your home and its property value.

How Often Should I Have My House Washed?

You should be pressure washing your home every three to five years depending on weather conditions and the material your siding is made from. If you see unsightly grime and build-up earlier, it is a good idea to pressure wash sooner to avoid causing any damage and expensive repairs.

Are the Chemicals You Use for Cleaning Eco-friendly?

Yes. Steady Flow PowerWash LLC strives to use cleaners that are safe for your home, inhabitants, and landscape. Often, cleaning detergents are only needed for the toughest jobs, and a steady stream of water pressure will remove most grime.

Can I DIY My Pressure Washing Projects?

We advise you to leave pressure washing to the professionals. Steady Flow PowerWash LLC has the tools and expertise to clean your home without causing unnecessary damage to the exterior or landscape. It is easy for a weekend warrior to use the wrong amount of water pressure when cleaning their home. Too much pressure from a pressure washing hose will cause damage to surfaces. There is also danger in trying to reach high places in your house. You are not trained to climb ladders or rooftops. You could sustain an injury or worse. Lastly, the necessary equipment is expensive, and if you plan to use it only once in a while, it may not be worth the investment.
