Consider Pressure Washing Your Home Before Listing It for Sale

With the novel coronavirus on the rise, now isn’t exactly the best time to sell a house. Health and wellness demand social distancing right now, which means avoiding crowds and staying at least six feet away from other people. However, if you’re working from home now and have some extra time on your hands, you can get some pre-listing work out of the way. For example, have you considered pressure washing your house before you list it? Here are some reasons why many homeowners brighten their houses with pressure washing before putting them on the market. 

Pressure Washing Adds Curb Appeal 

Even under normal circumstances, curb appeal matters when it comes to selling a house. Your home’s curb appeal serves as its first impression. It’s what convinces people to take a closer look. A lot of people start their home search by taking a day or so to drive past homes for sale. They make mental notes of the homes that look appealing, and they cross non-appealing homes off of their lists. You’ll definitely want your home to be in the first category, and that’s where pressure washing comes into play. Pressure washers can remove years of built-up dirt and dullness, leaving nothing but brightness in their place. 

Pressure Washing Options 

Next, pressure washing makes a great choice because there are so many things that you can do with it. You can use it for the outside walls of your home, of course. You can also use it for walkways, driveways, and similar hard surfaces. All of these places contribute to your home’s appearance, and they all take on a dull look after a few years. They get dull so gradually that we usually don’t notice it happening, but once a pressure washer reveals what’s underneath, you’ll be amazed at how clean these places can be. 

Make It Extreme  

The best choice for pressure washing is always a professional service. Professional cleaners know all of the techniques for getting hard-to-reach places, and they have specific training for the job. If you’re looking for expert pressure washers, then you need to call the Extreme team here in Tallahassee. We’re the experts on all things clean, both inside and outside the home.

How to Clean and Take Care of Your Tiles and Stones

Tile and stone flooring can add a lot to your home. They fit into almost any type of home design, and they can handle a lot of foot traffic. Still, if you want to get the most out of your tile and stone floors, then proper care is essential. With the right care and cleaning, you can make sure that your floors maintain their shine and durability for years to come. Proper tile cleaning can make all the difference. Here’s what you need to do to keep your floors looking their best.

Daily Tile Cleaning

First, daily tile cleaning will keep your floors looking fantastic. The same applies to stone cleaning. Of course, you don’t need to scrub your floors every day. However, it’s a good idea to sweep your floors with a broom on a daily basis. You should also wipe up spills right away to avoid stains. With just a few minutes of effort every day, you can save yourself hours of time cleaning later.

Mop or Sponge

Once a week or so, you should include mopping in your tile cleaning routine. Whether your tiles are made out of stone or another material, weekly mopping will keep your floors safe and sanitary. If you have a family or pets, mopping is even more essential for maintaining clean surfaces.

Neutrals for Naturals

When choosing cleaning products for your floors, try to do a bit of research first. This idea goes back to your high school chemistry class. For natural materials like stone, don’t choose any cleaners that are too base or too acidic. Look for neutrals instead. Bases and acids can strip your floors, but neutrals are safe for stone tile cleaning.

Professional Cleaning

Next, you should get professional tile cleaning for your floors every 12 to 18 months. This way, you can keep your floors sanitary and maintain their beauty for years. Professional cleaners can reach the spots that regular cleaning won’t reach. For example, they can reach into crevices that you may miss during your weekly mopping sessions. Furthermore, the best cleaning companies can personalize your cleaning experience based on your floor type and other needs.

Urine in carpeting is a severe problem that often requires major restoration work, not just simple cleaning and treating. Because dogs and cats don’t sweat, their urine contains alkaline salts which absorb moisture out of the air. As the urine dries, the liquid evaporates and these crystals become even more concentrated and pungent, becoming a feeding ground for bacteria.

Urine deposited on carpet does not stay on the surface; it penetrates the fibers and contaminates both the backing of the carpet and the flooring material below the carpet. Often, without your knowing, pets will urinate continually in the same general location. Urine odors can permeate from the floor, be it cement or wood, from the tack strip, and even from the framework of the house behind the walls. Simple cleaning will not remove this odor. We offer urine and odor removal services designed for any situation.

1. Inspection. The source and severity of the odor are determined.

2. Application of enzyme. The carpet will be treated with our special enzyme treatment to neutralize urine and aid in removal of the stain and odor. Heavily stained areas may be more heavily saturated and extracted to reach the padding.

3. Deep steam extraction. The carpet will be rinsed and extracted with our exclusive hot water extraction method to remove the bulk of the urine crystals and the pre-treatment agent.

If the first three steps do not remove the staining or odor, or the problem is severe, more extreme measures may be taken. This level of service is labor intensive and would include cleaning and sealing the sub floor, and replacing the carpeting and padding. Our office can assist you with more information and pricing.4. Inspect padding and subfloor. The carpet is pulled back in the suspected areas to reveal the extent of the damage.5. Carpet and pad removal. Carpet padding pad will be removed and discarded. In some cases, the carpeting may be salvageable.6. Seal subfloor. Over time, urine can wick up from the sub floor, damaging the new carpet and pad. An odor blocking shellac is applied to affected areas which may include the sub-floor, tack strips, carpet backing, baseboards, and walls.7. Replace padding and carpet.
