Benefits of Power Washing
Dirt is everywhere, and for home owners it’s a nuisance. For cleaners, it’s a dream. Power washing is the chosen method for cleaning dirt, grime, pollution, and oil off of hard surfaces like concrete. There are several benefits to hiring a power washing service.
This is one of the easiest benefits to notice - curb appeal! Blasting away the dirt build up is an easy way to make your home look better. Rain easily distributes mud onto walkways and patios, and over time the mud dries and just cakes onto the concrete. Surface cleaners and pressure wands make short work of dirt build up.
Grease and grime from shoes also builds up over time. You notice this especially on well-worn walking paths and entry ways. The black discoloration can be cleaned up to make your entry way look new.
Mold is another element that can build up in concrete. Mold grows into the pores of the concrete, and the longer it is left untreated or uncleaned, the harder it is to eradicate. Mold also retains moisture and becomes slick when wet. This makes it a slipping hazard during and after rainfall. Be careful when walking on concrete overgrown with mold.
Soft Washing and Sealing
While power washing is an option to remove mold, we recommend having the concrete treated with a soft washing method. Soft washing uses low pressure and a cleaning solution as opposed to high pressure water. The soft washing solution contains a small percentage of sodium hypochlorite, or essentially chlorine, that kills the mold and releases its bond on the concrete. Light pressure is then used to rinse the mold away. This method is ideal because it kills the mold and helps prevent regrowth. Since mold is spore-based, simply blasting off sends spores into the air, which resettle on the concrete and begin growing again. Soft washing is more reliable at stopping the mold from returning.
A surefire way to prevent mold regrowth is to have the concrete sealed. Concrete sealer fills in the pores of the concrete and helps prevent moisture from seeping through. Not only does sealing prevent mold growth, it protects the concrete and prevents cracks due to moisture. When water gets into the concrete and freezes, it expands, then contracts when the weather is warmer. This fluctuation causes micro fractures in the surface that often become larger cracks.

Commercial Curb Appeal
Managing a business comes with no small list of things to do on a regular basis. Exterior maintenance and cleaning is an important task to remember, as curb appeal directly influences how a customer feels about your business. Agent Clean specializes in both residential and commercial exterior cleaning. Here are a few of our most used services.
Commercial Cleaning - Pressure Washing
Sidewalks and Entryways: One of the quickest areas to become dirty and covered in grime is the sidewalk and entryway to your business, or a patio if its a restaurant. Agent Clean can wash and treat those areas to remove dirt, grease, and mold. Gum and rust removal service is also available.
Dumpster Pads: These are quick to become greasy and dirty, especially at restaurants. Agent Clean utilizes a powerful degreaser to remove oil and grease build up around dumpster pads, reducing slipping hazard and fire risk as well as keeping the area tidy.
Drive through: Banks and restaurants benefit from our drive through cleaning. We use a strong degreaser to remove oil and grime from the driving lanes, and rinse wash the canopy and pillars. This keeps your drive through lanes looking pristine and professional.
Commercial Cleaning - Window Washing
Agent Clean also offers routine window cleaning services. Windows, especially in restaurants and in entryways, quickly become smudged and dirty. Professional window cleaning is fast, high-quality, and leaves the windows sparkling.
Whatever business you have, routine maintenance is always best. By scheduling routine cleanings, your business benefits from clean exteriors and the process is generally faster because it’s performed on a regular basis. Give us a call for a free commercial cleaning service estimate.
Professional Exterior Cleaning Service
Keeping the exterior of your home clean can be an exhausting effort as it’s constantly being exposed to the elements. Dirt is a persistent problem with keeping your windows clean, and nearby trees fill your gutters with leaves causing them to clog and not drain properly. The equipment required to maintain a clean exterior properly is heavy, expensive, and only used periodically. Why not let an exterior cleaning expert take care of the dirty work for you?
Quality House Cleaning Service
Agent Clean excels at a variety of cleaning services and offers custom cleaning packages for your home or business. Take advantage of our roof cleaning, power washing, window washing, and gutter cleaning services. We offer custom recurring scheduling for business looking to have window cleaning, dumpster pad cleaning, and concrete cleaning performed regularly.
Soft Washing and Pressure Washing Service
Agent Clean does more than blast surfaces with high pressure water. Our soft washing method uses low pressure and a cleaning solution to gently wash the surface, getting rid of mold, mildew, dirt, and algae in the process. The benefit of soft washing is that it eliminates mold and mildew spores, thus stopping regrowth.
