It’s that time of year again – hurricane season!
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), there’s a 65% chance of an above-normal season hurricane season this year. But, the good news is that hurricanes are foreseeable events.
In the event that a storm affects our area, consider adding pressure washing to your clean-up checklist. The sludge, dirt, and debris often left behind by tropical events create a prime environment for mold and mildew to develop. When your property is wet and waterlogged, organic debris from the storm will feed the growth of mold and mildew spores. After the deluge passes, the sun heats the surfaces where the debris is lodged, allowing spores to multiply. Without action, your building and property can soon become covered in mold and other undesirable particles, including bacteria and viruses.
The high pressure produced by a power washer will blast away dirt that high winds or floodwaters have embedded on your building exterior, on driveways, etc. Power washing is the ideal method to bring many different types of surfaces to like-new conditions following a tropical storm.
