What It Means To Be A Green Pressure Washing Company in Charlotte

In today’s environmentally conscious society, many local companies are scrambling to jump on the green bandwagon.  Every bit helps and those that truly make an effort to reduce waste, use biodegradable products, and reduce their carbon footprint should be commended for their actions whether it be a pressure washing company, baker, or candlestick maker.

            There are, however, many pitfalls in this surge of environmental concern.  Many companies falsely claim to be green to capitalize on the trend only to benefit their bottom line by trying to outwit the public they serve.  Not only does this isolate the consumer by insulting their intelligence, but it destroys the integrity of the industry.  This is particularly evident in the pressure washing industry. 

Pressure washing is an industry that is relatively easy to become involved in.  It is an industry plagued by unknowledgeable operators that are attracted to the low start up costs and high income potential.  They do not belong to professional organizations, participate in industry round table events, or educate themselves on the latest products, techniques, and trends that help keep our customers investments safe and clean.  These same folks will sometimes use the “green” angle to help gain new customers that are legitimately concerned about the environment.

Professional pressure washing companies that claim to be “green” should use water saving equipment, biodegradable chemicals, and have the ability to reclaim and reuse their waste water.  All of this should be coupled with the proper education on how to use the equipment and cleansers properly.  As a consumer it is important to do your research by trying to find companies that are knowledgeable in their field, not knowledgeable on the art of tricking potential customers.


Clean Gutters Can Save Thousands | 704-400-0623


Gutters are designed to be the “sentries” of your home.  Ideally, they control the flow of water around your home, protecting it from a myriad of ailments.  Clean, debris free gutters can not only save your home from premature decay, but can save you thousands of dollars in repair bills.  An important tip to remember the significance your gutters have on your home is “as the gutter goes, so the water flows.”

             Clogged gutters cause water to overflow and collect around the foundation of your home.  During colder months, this excess water freezes and expands causing “frost heave”, or cracks in your foundation wall.  Water that backs up in the gutter can also cause moisture damage to the wood in the fascia around your home.  When the water backs up in your gutters it also creates undetected roof leaks that can result in interior damage to walls and ceilings.

             The same ill effects of improper gutter drainage can affect property around your home.  For example, water that collects on concrete sidewalks and driveways can freeze and similar to your foundation, will result in cracks and sagging concrete.  The water that pools on this concrete also causes rapid mold and mildew growth during warmer months and ice during colder months.  Both of these events result in a slippery hazard for the home owner and their family.  The same runoff can wash away landscaping, cause soil erosion, and kill grass and trees due to overwatering.

             Many pressure washing companies will clean gutters for a nominal fee, allowing the home owner to avoid getting on ladders and putting themselves at risk.  These same pressure washing companies will also clean the black streaks off the outside of the gutters making your home more aesthetically pleasing!  Cleaning your gutters inside and out on a regular basis will keep your home safe, save you thousands in repair bills, and make your home look great.
