Cedar Cleaning & Restoration
With 11+ years of cleaning houses on Cape Cod and over 2,500 clean homes in our portfolio, we’ve developed an original eco-safe Cedar Restoration service that delivers superior results and restores its original beauty without stripping your home. Thanks to the prominence and popularity of cedar homes in New England, we have a tenured understanding of cedar cleaning, its deterioration, causes and cures as well as how to maintain its classic curb or “Street Appeal”. We use quality chemicals, equipment and techniques blended with professional workmanship and techniques to raise property values by bringing Street Appeal to your roof and helping you avoid the costly repairs associated with mold, moss, algae, lichen and more.
RESTORE YOUR CEDAR’S ORIGINAL NATURAL BEAUTY
With a Cedar Wash Restoration, as you can see in the image above, the cedar siding and roofing shingles come out uniformly clean. Our sodium per carbonate powered Cedar cleaning solution does not contain bleach nor does it require bleach to be added. When applied on your home, it will loosen all the old dead wood particles to be easily washed off along with mold and mildew stains. If your cedar has old stains or sealer on it, a cedar cleaning by the Pros will penetrate it, dissolving the old stain enough to be washed off the cedar shakes or shingles and save them from rotting away.
Eco-Safe CEDAR Cleaning
We take a conscientious approach for the long-term quality and health of your home, landscaping and family with Eco-Safe cleaning solutions. If you are afraid of spraying chemicals on your home you should be. Not only can the chemical run off and damage your plants and lawn, but some cedar cleaning agents can be fatal to your pets. These toxic chemicals can completely bleach out your cedar making it dry, cracked and brittle. Our Cedar Cleaning method uses an earth-friendly hydrogen peroxide plus a mix of 20 powerful cleaning surfactants that will not harm people, pets or property. As an oxygen based cleaner, the solution only has an active life of 4-6 short hours before it biodegrades, making it by far the safest product in the roof cleaning industry.
Our Pro team takes immense pride in their work and thoroughly and safely clean cedar shingles, shakes or clapboard with the proper PSI method and custom tooled equipment so your home’s materials are not scarred or damaged in the process. Remember that a pressure wand in inexperienced hands can cause serious problems to the curb or “Street Appeal” of your home. We offer the best quality and longest lasting “clean” available using special nozzles for pressure washers that we manufacture called “Soft Tips”. We’ve customized that technique to reduce the impact pressure on cedar by up to 70%. When cedar is professionally cleaned this way, no damage occurs to the home.
DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOUR CEDAR
This is what is looks like when toxic chemicals, such as bleach, are used to clean a cedar home. Bleach changes the cellular structure of the wood making shingles and shakes dry and brittle like a cracked nail. It's a quick fix — a cheap, unsafe substitute for quality chemicals and it causes irreparable damage to homes and landscaping. On top of that, it will kill mold and mildew but it does not eliminate the spores,
