3 Questions to Ask Your Pressure Washing Company

Pressure Washing Gaithersburg MD

Your property needs some help to regain its luster – and a pressure washing company can make that happen. But before you entrust a company with your biggest investment, make sure to ask them a few key questions:

  1. 1.Do you tailor your cleaning approach depending on the surface?
    Your technicians should provide two options: Pressure washing and soft washing. Pressure washing is a great choice for driveways and sidewalks, while soft washing is a safe method for home exteriors and roofs.
  2. 2.Do you have testimonials?
    This is where you can feel confident that you’re getting a great solution. Your pressure washing company should be able to direct you to customer reviews and ratings that speak to their service.
  3. 3.What can you remove?
    Moss, mold, mildew, grease, dirt, oil: Grime can come in a lot of different forms. Speak with your pressure washer to make sure they have the technology to remove it all.

With the team at Superior Pressure Washing on your side, you’ll always have thorough, honest, and satisfactory answers to these important questions. A completely “like new” result is waiting for your property!

What’s Creeping and Crawling in Your Gutter?

What Might Be Lurking in Your Gutters?

We all know there are many things that get trapped in our gutters. Dirt, twigs, rocks leaves and pine needles all land on your roof and get carried to your gutters as rainwater washes them down. But do you know the other creepy crawlies that might be hiding in your gutters?

Mice and Other Rodents

The debris that’s left in a drainage system that has been left alone for too long, things like leaves, twigs and pine needles are the exact materials that mice and other rodents use to make their nests. In the fall and winter when mice and other rodents are looking for warm places to make their nests, piles of leaves, twigs and other materials are great places for mice to hunker down and stay warm. The presence of mice and nests can also attract snakes to your home who might find their way into the cracks and crevices of your home.

Birds

In much of a similar way to mice, birds also find these piles of leaves, twigs and needles to be a great place to make their nests. Birds are not as destructive as other unwanted guests, however, their droppings can stain parts of your home that are highly visible. Birds’ nests can sabotage the efficiency of your storm drainage system as well by acting as obstructions to the flow of water as well as by adding organic material that may undermine the strength of the materials and causing your gutters to burst at the seams. If birds do decide to make a nest in your gutters and lay eggs, they may also become territorial and aggressive.

Mosquitoes and Termites

Mosquitoes might be the easiest of all these pests to spot, but easily the least damaging to your home. Mosquitoes are drawn to any stagnant water as it is its ideal breeding ground, including any water that has pooled in your gutters due to a clog. Having a mosquito infestation on the very outside of your home can cause endless distress to you and your family, and carries risk of Eastern Equine Encephalitis which has been on the rise in some areas.

Termites won’t eat your gutters because they only eat wood. They will, however, happily eat away at the fascia board that your gutters are attached to. Termite damage can be particularly detrimental because you most likely won’t know it’s a problem until they’ve caused serious damage that will be costly to repair. Having a professional company to regularly maintain your gutters will ensure that someone who knows exactly what to look for will be able to spot any signs of termites in the fascia.

Squirrels and Chipmunks

If the trees surrounding your home are close enough that the branches reach your gutters, you probably have a squirrel issue on your roof and gutters. Like with mice, gutters act as a great safe haven to escape into to get away from predators like foxes. By keeping branches trimmed back (at least three feet away from your home and gutters), you can keep squirrels and chipmunks from climbing on your roof. Chipmunks, in particular, can be a real menace to your gutter system as gutters can be the perfect size for a chipmunk’s body. Rodents that build nests in your gutters will often build them in the downspouts, which will always lead to clogs and overflowing. Chipmunks can even get themselves stuck in your downspouts and perish, leading to a foul-smelling mess which can even attract bugs that will feast on the carcass.

Your Roof, Black Streaks, and Your Investment

Your roof can sometimes get relegated to “afterthought” territory. There are a thousand and one other property maintenance needs to consider, after all – and roof cleaning doesn’t always make it to the top of the list.

But consider this a plea to reconsider roof cleaning on your list of priorities. The maintenance of your shingles are, after all, directly connected to your property’s curb appeal and your investment.

Making sense of black streaks

Most roofs in our region get impacted by an issue we call “black streaks.” The title is self-descriptive – dark stripes run down the length of your roof, and the result isn’t exactly easy on the eye.

But these stains aren’t just an eyesore. They come with a whole host of challenges, but we return the favor with solutions.

  • What are black streaks?
    They’re caused by Gloeocapsa Magma, a type of bacteria that eats the limestone matter in your roofing.
  • Why do they spread?
    The more they eat, the more they grow. And that’s when the eyesore of a stain comes into play.
  • Are they bad for me roof?
    Yes. Black streaks degrade roof quality, strip away heating and cooling efficiency, and make it necessary to get a roof replacement prematurely.

Your roof cleaning solution

Okay, enough of the bad news. Black streaks aren’t good for your roof – but there is a solution. Superior Pressure Washing delivers a soft washing solution that will:

  • Remove black stains and other eyesores
  • Kill Gloeocapsa Magma, as well as mold and mildew
  • Wash away dirt and debris

With regular roof cleaning, your curb appeal is back on track. But you also have a roof that is ready to last for the long run – and look great every single step of the way!

Live A Leaf-free Life With Our Lifetime Clog-free Warranty

The absolute last thing any homeowner wants to care about is how well their gutters are working. Even more, nobody likes getting out the ladder a couple of times a year to get up on the roof to clean debris and leaf clogs out of the gutters.

leaves in a gutterImagine a world where you never have to think about your gutters again. The good news is that such a world already exists! The K-Guard Gutter System requires no maintenance, no more ladders to the roof, and no more scraping goop and clogs out of your gutters.

Not only that, they come with a lifetime clog-free warranty. You read that right – the K-Guard Gutter System is so effective that it comes with a lifetime promise that it will never clog! There is no other gutter system on the market today that can not only make such a claim but also back it up in writing.

Can I really live life clog-free?

The short answer is yes! As long as there is no external damage to K-Guard gutters and downspouts, they will function perfectly year after year. If for some reason they actually do clog, one of our technicians will come out to your home right away and clean them out at absolutely no cost to you, no matter how long you own your home.

Think about it. You’ll never have to climb your ladder to clean out your gutters again! All you have to do is give us a call. One of our professional technicians will come out and give you a free estimate. Then, all that’s left is for our team of professional installers to come out and install the best investment in your home that you’ll ever make.

How does the K-Guard Gutter System work?

K-Guard gutters are the best solution to an age-old problem. When leaves and other debris are blowing around, they need a place to land. Unfortunately for homeowners, where they land most often is in the gutters, where they become collecting places for even more leaves and debris. Soon, the leaves and debris create clogs, which causes the gutters and downspouts to get backed up. These backups mean that the water that is supposed to be moved away from your home instead overflows, seeps into your roof, and can cause significant damage.

The K-Guard Gutter System prevents water overflow by preventing leaves, sticks, debris, and other airborne objects from ever getting into the gutters to start with. The sophisticated covers create a barrier that allows rainwater to flow in and be safely moved from the home while preventing leaves from ever getting in.

The system consists of two main parts, the hood, and the gutter. A narrow gap between the two allows the water to pass through and keep the clogs out. No leaves in the gutter mean no clogs in the gutter, which means no need for ladders to climb up and clean the gutters!

What about the gutters themselves, are they included in the warranty?

They are. If there are any defects in the installation or materials, we’ll come out and fix them right away, free of charge. Our exclusive Finish Guard Paint Finish will not chip, flake, or peel due to a manufacturing defect. If a problem develops, we’ll come out and refinish or replace them as long as they aren’t externally damaged for the lifetime of your home!

Is it possible to live a leaf free life with the K-Guard Gutter System?

It sure is. All you have to do is give us a call. You love your yard, your house, and your trees, but you hate dealing with leaves and clogs in your gutters. Our lifetime clog-free warranty means you can have all the pleasure that comes with having beautiful trees on your property without the worry of gutter clogs.

The K-Guard Gutter System gutters consist of the hood, gutter, and downspouts, the entire system needed to safely remove rainwater from your home. They are made from heavy-duty aluminum that won’t corrode, able to withstand virtually any weather condition.

Not only that, they will save you money too! Without K-Guard gutters, you may manage to avoid climbing the ladders yourself by hiring someone to clean them regularly for you. But keep in mind that the average cost of hiring professionals to clean your gutters is just under $200 a year. Since most experts recommend a cleaning at least three times a year, that means you could be shelling out $600 a year just to have your gutters cleaned!

Why not avoid both the hassle and expense? With K-Guard gutters, you can enjoy your home the way it was meant to be enjoyed, a leaf free, clog-free life! Contact us now to learn more about the K-Guard Gutter System, get an estimate, and start enjoying a life free of clogs and ladders.

Are Your Gutters Properly Pitched?

Gutters seem simple enough, but if they’re not installed correctly, they won’t be able to move water away from your home. A properly pitched gutter is tilted slightly toward their downspouts to ensure rainwater. This allows water to flow freely without getting trapped along the way. As a general rule of thumb, your gutters should slope down from their peak at least one quarter inch for every 10 feet of gutter.

So, how can you tell if your gutters are properly pitched? And what can you do about it? Read on to learn more:

Check your gutters after a rainstormAre Your Gutters Properly Pitched?

An easy way to make sure water is flowing through your downspouts is to inspect your gutters following a rainstorm. If you see any standing water in your gutters, and it’s not being blocked by debris or other obstructions, the pitch of the gutters is too shallow.

Try bending the gutter hanger

In some cases, you may be able to correct isolated gutter pitch issues by gently bending the gutter hanger in the affected area to allow water to drain into the downspout. If the pitch problems are more widespread, however, you may need to have your gutters rehung by a professional installer.

Avoiding incorrectly pitched gutters

If your gutters were originally hung by professionals and have been properly maintained, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about pitch problems unless they’re damaged by something like a falling tree limb. You’re also less likely to encounter pitch problems with seamless gutters because they must be custom cut to suit the unique dimensions of your home.
