It's that time of year again - cleaning time! From patios to rooftops, people everywhere in San Diego are cleaning their home or business exteriors, and they're utilizing pressure washing to do it. Pressure washing is a thorough, efficient, and powerful way to clean many home services, but it does require some expertise to do it right. To get your property in top shape, keep reading for the FAQ on pressure washing.
Can Anyone Complete Solar Panel Cleaning Services?
In the state of California, you don't need a license specifically to clean solar panels. However, you'll want to hire pressure washing professionals who are insured and have a regular business license. The benefits to a professional service include safety (which is always a big concern when working on roofs) and technical know-how.
You'll want to have your solar panels cleaned every six months. This keeps debris and stains from building up and affecting how much sunlight reaches the solar cells. Regular cleaning can also help keep your manufacturer's warranty valid. A receipt from a professional pressure washer is the perfect way to document this.
How Can I Keep My Pavers Looking Clean For Longer?
The best way to keep your new pavers in premium condition is to have them professionally sealed. An expert contractor like Northman Exteriors will know exactly how to prepare the hardscape and apply the proper sealant, so your paver walkway or patio stays protected for the next four to five years.
How Often Should I Get Exterior Cleaning Services?
It depends on the surface type and the material. A general rule of thumb is that an asphalt roof should be cleaned every year. House washing should also be performed yearly. Other exteriors that work best with annual cleaning include driveways and pool decks. With fences, on the other hand, you can go two to three years between cleaning.
For windows, every month or two is good, depending on how much dust and pollen are in your area. If you'd like one service that can take care of all your home or business exterior cleaning needs, call Northman Exteriors.
