It removes unsightly mold, gum, and other dirt stains on concrete, and makes wooden decks look new. It also removes pollution and mildew to improve the appearance of aluminum and vinyl siding on houses.

What are the Benefits of Pressure Washing?

Cleaning will remove the discoloration and prepare the surface for new paint or protective sealer.
