Gutter Cleaning at Its Best

Keeping your gutters clean does more than increase your home's curb appeal - it helps prevent flooding inside and outside your home. Leaves and debris can build up overtime, causing rainwater to overflow into your yard, creating puddles that can seep into your home. Agent Clean offers routine gutter cleaning, with options such as twice a year or more, to ensure your gutters are functioning properly.

Three Step Process | Gutter Cleaning

1) Clean Out the Debris

The first step is to clean out the leaves, twigs and other debris that has built up in the gutters over time. We can also check the condition of your gutter covers, if applicable. Gutter cover cleaning and removal may be an additional cost; we will inspect them during our initial call to see what needs to be done.

After debris is removed, we collect it in trash bags and haul it away to keep your yard area clean.

2) Downspout Test

After the debris is removed, clogged gutters are not the only potential problem. Sometimes it is the downspouts that become obstructed, so that even if the top gutters are clear, water can pool and flood as it cannot traverse the downspout. We ensure that the downspouts are clean and working before leaving the gutter cleaning job site.

3) Water Jetting

While many times a gutter can be cleaned out by hand, sometimes debris or mud has built up to the point of needing some extra power. Using a jetter tip, which attaches to a power washing wand or hose, a jetter shoots water in multiple directions at high velocity, clearing practically any clog. 

4) Gutter Treatment Upon Request

Do you notice discoloration or oxidation on the exterior of your gutters? We offer gutter restoration to make your gutters look new. Aluminum or metal gutters often oxidize over time, revealing a powdery or discoloration on the exteriors. We can treat the gutters to clean them up and bring back the original appearance.

Spring Into Clean

The winter months can feel stale, with so much time being spent indoors and out of the weather. It’s no surprise that our homes can start to feel like they're in a state of disarray. Clutter tends to accumulate around the house, and dirt and debris left over from autumn, then covered by snow becomes more obvious as the snow melts away. One of the best ways to shake off the dust is to do some spring cleaning.

Five Tips to Clean Up for Spring

1) Move and Organize. 

The first thing you should do is any organizing or moving of furniture that you might want to do. Since organizing things can kick up dust, it’s best to start out with this. Vacuum or dust items before putting them away to prevent build up over time. Try rearranging the furniture to change up the feng shui and to give it a fresh look, or replace some of the old furniture and accessories to brighten up the room.

2) Grab a Duster

Next, try focusing on dusting off your furniture, TVs, and bookshelves. Don’t forget those hard-to-reach places that tend to accumulate dust bunnies. Dusting sends particles into the air that settle onto the floor, so we recommend dusting before vacuuming.

3) Vacuum

A good detailed vacuuming can make a huge difference. Vacuum your carpets and floors, and use the extension to  get corners of rooms, baseboards, and underneath couches and tables. Also remember to hit the tops of things like microwaves and refrigerators. 

4) Clean out the closets

Spring is also a great time to clean out your closets, especially ones that may have been neglected over the fall and winter such as outdoor storage or sheds. Organize your garden tools and get ready for planting your spring flowers!

5) Clean up the exterior

While you’re cleaning and organizing the rest of your home, it’s a great opportunity to clean up the exterior as well. Concrete cleaning and power washing, window cleaning, and gutter cleaning are popular cleaning services we offer at Agent Clean. You can also opt to have your siding and roof cleaned if you have mildew and mold growing on your house.

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.

Curb Appeal

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. 

Safety

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. 

What can be power washed?

Power washing is a great solution to cleaning up hard surfaces around your home. Commonly, these are patios, sidewalks, and driveways. Power washing is also useful around pools, on retaining walls, and brick steps or entryways.

Commercial Curb Appeal

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.

The Power of Clean

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.
