Mildew, mold, and grime can lead to permanent damage of a home's exterior. Parker's Pressure Washing puts a stop to that with eco-friendly cleaning solutions. Wielding wands that yield a gentle but powerful spray, they wash away unsightly organisms and dirt, leaving siding, gutters, and roofs looking like new. The detergents they use are biodegradable and get deep into the pores of surfaces, breaking down spores of mold, mildew, and other growths. Those detergents are safe for family, pets, plants, and yards, ensuring homes and surrounding areas are well kept. With the same tools and attention to detail, they also tackle gritty grime sticking to decks, driveways, and fences.
