Your patios, driveway, and decks are usually the first thing you see when you step outside, so why not enhance the look? Sweep all the sticks and debris off your deck to clear space for you, your guests, and your furniture.


Seeing spotted, dirty windows from the outside of your home can lessen your curb appeal. Take some glass-cleaning spray and either a microfiber cloth or a squeegee to get your windows to shine. Doing this from both the inside and outside is recommended for the best results. If there are exterior windows that are tough to reach, hiring a local window cleaning company should do the trick.


Once the snow is gone and you can see your lawn again, you typically see leftover leaves from the fall. It is a good idea to rake the leftover leaves off the lawn as soon as you can. If you have a larger lawn, you should mulch the leaves with a lawnmower for faster removal or hire a landscaping company to do the job for you.


Over the winter, garbage can pile up near or on your property. Once the snow is gone, take a walk around and see if any wrappers, aluminum cans, or other litter have found their way to your property and get rid of it.


Soft washing your house is the best way to clean it. Over the winter, and throughout the year, surface contaminants like algae, mold, and dirt make their way to your siding. Soft washing your home will safely eliminate those surface contaminants and return your siding to a like-new condition.


While you have already swept your driveway and patios, they may not look as good as you would like. Soft Washing these surfaces will help restore their look. . If you are not comfortable using a cleaning machine, calling a professional soft washing company is always a great option.


Just like on your home, algae and mold can grow on your deck. Not only will removing these contaminants improve the look of your deck, but it will also make it safer. Algae can make your deck very slippery when wet. And considering a deck is one of the primary places to host guests during the summer, you will want to make sure yours looks pristine.


Debris will commonly find its way into your gutters as the winter season concludes. Make sure you inspect the inside of your gutters and any clogged areas. If they are clogged, try to unclog them. Hiring a gutter company is always an option if there are many problem areas.


Now that your decks and patios are looking fantastic, you probably want your furniture looks great too. Clean and rinse off any pieces of furniture that you plan to place out on these surfaces.


If you are noticing black streaking or moss on your roof, reach out to a professional soft washing company to clean this. The black streaking on the roof can eat away at the granules within shingles and deteriorate them time. The moss on the roof will embed its roots in the shingles as well, and these areas must be treated extra carefully or could lead to leaking. A reputable soft wash company will use a soft wash method to remove the black streaks and neutralize the moss.
