h2o april 4It’s just about time to start firing up the grill and rolling up the pool cover for the warm season ahead of us here in the Triangle and the Capital City. The weather here in this part of North Carolina is beautiful throughout the spring and summer months, and we all look forward to spending much more time outside.  But first thing’s first!  We’ve got to clean up the cool weather clutter that the fall and winter have left behind!  Some of this is easy to handle on our own, but some of it is hard enough to clean that the call to H2O Wash may be the best thing to do as we head into May and the long summer season. It just makes sense to call  H2O Wash, the Triangle’s most trustworthy and competent professional pressure washing team!  We will take care of your home or business as if it was our very own. H2O will give your property the TLC it needs to prepare for all the action this warm weather will provide.  From backyard cookouts and pool parties to get-togethers  and sidewalk sales, H2O Wash can get your home or business looking its best for those wonderfully warm months. There are certain clean up jobs that pressure washing can handle in just a fraction of the time compared to conventional cleaning methods. Here are five examples of jobs that pressure washing can handle in a hurry:
  • Cleaning the dirt and grime off siding:  This could take days with a scrubber and hose.  Let us spray down your building and have it looking good as new in no time!
  • Bringing the light back to your sidewalk or stoop:  We can wash away oil or hard water stains, shoe scuffs and even chewing gum quickly, and with no chemicals!  With our expertise, you can rest assured we won’t damage the material while doing it!

Spring Cleaning in the Triangle with H2O Wash

The time for Spring Cleaning is fast approaching us here in the Triangle. It is almost March!  For businesses and office buildings in the Triangle this can be quite a challenge.  But don’t let yourself be overwhelmed by the amount of chores!  Let a trustworthy team of professionals lighten the load for you!  Businesses, office buildings and parking garages here in the Raleigh area can accumulate a wealth of dirt and grime throughout the winter season.  Algae, fungus, mold, and oil slicks are just a few problems that can be easily solved with a professional pressure washing.  Taking care of these issues alone can be a serious undertaking, and H2O Wash can help you clean away that concern. We can take on virtually any project, both large and small. This way you can use your valuable time preparing for the busy year ahead doing other things. There are several services pressure washing can perform to spruce up your business and get it looking good-as-new:
  • Entrance ways - the entrance to your building is going to give a powerful first impression to your clients.  If your doorway is needs a cleaning, or your stairs are greasy and dark from heavy foot traffic, you may be giving the wrong impression.  Let our H2O Wash team take care of this quickly, safely and efficiently so you can get back to positive first impressions.
  • Awnings - Many businesses utilize awnings for covering, outdoor shading, signage space, or just as an accent. No matter what the purpose, a dirty awning can be an eyesore.  Don’t let your awning catch the eye for all the wrong reasons!  Power washing will bring it back to life, and help get your physical presence looking good again.
  • Parking Garages and Parking Lots - The first experience your customer has with your business is always the parking area.  Though it may not seem too important, a dirty parking area will subconsciously give a poor impression to your clients.  Rubber markings and greasy spots build up over time, as well as accumulation from exhaust on walls (interior parking).  These surface areas typically can be large, much more than a single individual should tackle alone.  Let us destroy the grime and make your parking area a pleasant experience for both you and your customers.
These are just a few of the several service options we provide, along with siding washing, cleaning of external fixtures and much more.  Don’t let the grime get you down, call us today and we’ll make Spring Cleaning a snap! ** If you liked this blog post about pressure washing and want to know more, contact H2O Wash in Wendell, NC (info below!) for quality service and dependability!

Exterior Cleaning and Holiday Decorating Go Hand-in-Hand

Thanksgiving Day is almost here!  Soon it will be the Holidays and you will be hanging wreaths on the front door and decorating the house with everything from snowmen, candy canes and Santas to light-up snowflakes and big piney Christmas trees!  And not only will your house be wearing the holiday decorum -- it will also be filled with family and friends, and the savory smells of holiday cooking.  This is a time of year many homeowners look forward to.  It’s a time to show your home off looking its best, and be proud of what you’ve worked so hard for all year.  But don’t forget, your home has worked hard all year as well, braving through harsh spring weather and summer humidity.  It might need a little sprucing up before it can be dressed to impress.  Here are a few ways H2O Wash can get your household looking top-notch for the holidays:  
  • Deck/Porch Cleaning:  When entertaining company, the deck (or porch) is a very common gathering place.  After long springs and humid summers, your deck can be looking tired and old.  With a simple pressure washing, H2O Wash can have your deck looking fresh and new, and practically sparkling for the holidays.  But don’t delay! This is a great time of year for appearance. Your deck will need a few days to dry out after washing, so call H2O today and get it done!
  • Entrance Cleaning:  Your entrance way will be the first thing that welcomes guests to your home.  Make sure it looks as inviting as possible.  Bricks can dull the look of your entrance, whether on the steps or the frame around the door.  Pressure washing is the quickest and most efficient way to take care of this and brighten up that first impression for your guests.
  • Roof Cleaning:  If you haven’t done this yet, it’s not too late!  Many homeowners will make the roof a focal point of their holiday decorating.  If you plan on having a Santa display on the roof, or even just lining it with lights, you’ll want it looking its very best. In the summer and post-summer months, algae and mold can grow on many types of roof surfaces.  H2O Wash will remove this growth safely, leaving your roof looking clean and new.
  If you’ve got company coming for the holidays and want your home looking its very best, or if you just think it could use a tune-up, call H2O Wash today and get the holiday make-over your home wants and needs to invite and impress the way it should. ** Photo Credit: elkinspaintingssav.com If you liked this post about residential power washing, brought to you by Ronnie Wilkins and the H2O Wash Team in Wendell NC, visit below for further information!

3 H2O Wash Gutter Cleaning Services that Work

The time of year is here when the responsible homeowner must asks, "When was the last time I cleaned my gutters?"  This is a task that many homeowners tend to forget about, but some serious maintenance may be in order!  There are many reasons to give your gutter a good cleaning in October and November, because there's a good chance you won't have time to get to it before the holidays.  Summer humidity causes a lot of mold and algae growth, especially if a gutter becomes clogged, resulting in stagnant water and flooding.  Even if your gutter made it through the summer, sticks and fallen leaves can cause debris buildup in your gutter that could result in a clog.  If left unattended, a clogged gutter can cause thousands of dollars in damage to a home.  Don't wait any longer, call the professionals at H2O Wash today and give your gutter the V.I.P. treatment it deserves!  Here are some gutter cleaning services H2O Wash can perform for you:
  • Cosmetic Cleaning:  Does your gutter have black or brown tiger stripes running down its face?  These stripes occur when pollution and dirt build up on the lip of your gutter; then an overflow of precipitation spills over that lip running down the face of your gutter and bringing the dirt/pollution with it.  This is caused by heavy rainfall or, in a worse-case scenario, a clogged gutter.  The correct pressure washing can safely and easily remove these streaks, leaving your gutter looking like new.
  • Buildup Removal:  This is the season when your gutters can accumulate all kinds of debris: leaves, pine cones, even small branches that get blown off the trees by that brisk autumn wind.  H2O Wash will go the extra mile and clear out the buildup that poses a threat to your gutter's draining system.  Some companies may begin to spray out the gutters before making sure the downspouts are cleared.  The flow of water can compact the debris in the downspout resulting in a much more severe problem, but H2O does it right.
  • Function Restoration:  After the debris is removed from your gutter, an environment-safe algae-killing formula is applied, followed by a low-pressure spraying to remove any gunky growth caused by stagnant water.  This will leave your drains functioning as well as the day you moved in.
So now you know, a properly functioning gutter system is something to be taken seriously!  And the team at H2O Wash has the skill and expertise to get your gutter back in tip-top shape. Give us a call today! ** This blog post about commercial and residential power washing is brought to you by Ronnie Wilkins and the H2O Wash team in Wendell NC.

3 Ways to the Cleanest Roof in the Neighborhood

If you live in a house with a shingled roof, you may often find yourself looking up as you pull in the driveway after a long day’s work and wondering “where did all those dark streaks come from? “ This problem is very common here in the Triangle because of our high humidity, especially in areas on a roof that face in a northerly direction or get a lot of time in the shade.  It is called roof algae and it affects the  looks and the integrity of your roof.  This highly common problem is also one of the most dangerous and time-consuming to deal with on your own.  This is where H2O Wash can step in! It may be hard to find time in your busy schedule to climb up on that roof and start scrubbing or brushing away that ugly algae growing between your shingles (asphalt, wood shingles or shakes - any kind of roof can be effected).  And even if you do find the time, it can be extremely dangerous to get up on a slick and damp roof to take a shot at this task all by yourself. You may have heard stories about pressure washers destroying shingles during the cleaning: removing the granule, cracking several, or even removing them. With H2O Wash’s low pressure process you can be assured the highest quality service and reliability, and here’s why:
  • Growth-Killing Solution:  Some pressure washer services may not use a solution to kill the algae before beginning to spray.  What only the professionals know is that killing the growth before spraying allows for a much gentler pressure to be used, eliminating the possibility of damage being done to your roof.  H2O Wash uses a solution that will be safe for any roof material, while taking care of that pesky growth for good.
  • Low Pressure:  After the solution has been applied to your roof and left to do its job for a few minutes, the H2O Wash team will come in and gently wash the growth away.  After killing off the roots, the pressure washer can be set to a very low P.S.I. and easily peel away the dead growth.  Other pressure washers that don’t use a growth-killing solution may try to use a much higher P.S.I. setting to clean the roof, resulting in shingle destruction.
  • Proper Procedures:  It may be tempting to just use your garden hose and spray your roof from the yard.  This is not the easiest or the best way to handle algae removal.  The professionals know to never spray against the grain of the roof.  Spraying water under your shingles can loosen them, resulting in a weakened barrier, or even remove them.  The pros at H2O Wash know to go from the top, and work their way down.  This is the safest procedure for your roof, but much more dangerous for you.  That’s why this is a job for H2O Wash.
Trust the best power washing team in the Triangle to make your roof like brand new again. Adding value and appearance with no worries is what we do. ** This blog post about commercial and residential power washing is brought to you by Ronnie Wilkins and the H2O Wash team in Wendell NC.

5 Areas that Will Improve Your Medical Facility

The field of medicine is one that is constantly growing and evolving.  With medicine finding new ways to solve nearly any problem, patients are coming and going each and every day.  As everyone knows, when you are experiencing an illness or infection, you want to be able to view your medical center as a place for help and support. A hospital or medical center should be an environment of both sterility and safety. Creating this experience and inspiring trust in your patients and visitors begins with first impressions. If your building doesn’t sparkle, potential patients are going to begin their experience with the subliminal message of doubt in the environment.  Getting a regular professional exterior cleaning can eliminate this problem quickly and efficiently. Pressure washing technology today has cut the cleaning time for large commercial buildings like medical centers, and H2O Wash is both affordable and effective.  Here are five areas pressure washing can affect that improve the appearance of your medical center:
  • Parking Areas:  A greasy parking lot can be very misrepresentative of your practices, especially for patients who need wheelchair accommodation.  Oil/grease slicks can be removed easily with a pressure washing.
  • Sidewalks:  Plenty of foot traffic can wear out a sidewalk, leaving it looking dirty.  Pressure washing can cut through the deep layers of dirt, and even remove old, hardened gum that has been smashed into the cement by foot traffic.
  • Building Facades:  The look of your building speaks volumes for your levels of expectation when it comes to cleanliness.  Water or rust stains, dirt and mold are easily removed with a pressure washing.  Whether your exterior is made of brick, vinyl, large stone, ceramic tiles, or even large glass windows, these can all be brought back to like new appearance.
  • Ventilation Hoods:  These can accumulate dirt and mold very quickly, and can look very bad on the exterior of your building.  Pressure washing will do in minutes what hand-scrubbing would need an hours or more to complete.
  • Gutter Systems:  The gutter is the outline of your building.  A dirty gutter is like a dirty frame around your medical center.  Keep these clean and free of mold and rust, and make sure your building appears as clean as possible.
There are several variables that the effective, affordable services of pressure washing can do to spruce up a medical center or hospital.   And your pressure washing provider should be as trustworthy as your staff.  Ronnie Wilkins, owner of Wendell’s H2O Wash, has been providing reliable service to the Raleigh Metro area and the Triangle, NC for over ten years.  When you decide it’s time to give your medical center a thorough cleaning, give Ronnie a call at (919) 669-7173, where you can expect quality service at an affordable price. ** This blog post about commercial and residential power washing is brought to you by Ronnie Wilkins and the H2O Wash team in Wendell NC.

5 Ways Power Washing Can Make that First impression

Is your business appearance a little tired?  Lost that new-business smell?  Has nature, or even the neighborhood kids, taken a toll on the appearance of your building?  It is all about first impressions. Professional power washing may be the answer you and your building exterior need.  In Wendell, NC and across the Triangle, excellence and power washing has a new name in H2O Wash!  Operating throughout the Raleigh metro area, H2O Wash can spruce up the look of your building in a matter of hours.  Awnings, windows, brick or concrete building facades, sidewalks, parking areas, entrances, you name it! Here are some of the professional services H2O Wash can offer your business:
  • Exterior Wash:  This is the most important part of the business: the first impression!  If the building you work from looks dirty and unappealing, potential clients will be less likely to want to enter.  Fungus on bricks or concrete can be sprayed away with ease.  Gunky buildup on windows is handled simply and effectively with a power washing.  And any unsightly graffiti on the sides or back of a building can disappear.
  • Gutter Cleaning:  This can be more important than you realize.  Dirty gutters create a dirty looking frame around your building.  And gutters full of build-up can cause water to leak down the face of your business, leaving dark water spots and streaks.
  • Awning Cleaning:  Whether your awning is for shade, signage purposes, or just to highlight the look of your business, it’s general appearance has a great effect on the overall aesthetic of your building.  And awnings that do not get regularly cleaning do not last too long.  With power washing, water spots and mold build-up can be removed leaving your awning looking as good as new.
  • Sidewalk Spray:  Heavy foot traffic can make your sidewalk look tired and worn.  Pressure washing can get rid of dirt and grime from the wear-and-tear of daily commuters with ease.
  • Parking Lot Clean-Up:  This is another part of the first impression.  If your clients are stepping out of their cars onto grease-spots and oil slicks, they’re already experiencing displeasure before even entering your business.  Make the trip from car to desk as neat and tidy as possible with a quick spray down.
So, as you can see, your business may be in need of a power washing more than you think!  Maximize your potential with a building make-over, and call Ronnie Wilkins today to schedule a quick and easy power wash.  You won’t regret it! ** This blog post about commercial and residential power washing is brought to you by Ronnie Wilkins and the H2O Wash team in Wendell NC.
