Unwashed windows accumulate layers of grime that can build up and block out the sun, causing light-hungry houseplants to turn to TV sets and birthday cakes. Keep the planted masses happy with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $80 worth of gutter or window cleaning or pressure washing from Higher Ground Rainwater Systems.
The technicians at Higher Ground Rainwater Systems manage residential exteriors, scouring surfaces to leave houses shining. Tube specialists extricate leaves, mud, and bowling balls from gutters, all the while carefully identifying and fixing damage. Service starts at $65 for a small cottage or bungalow, with $80 covering two-thirds of an average-size home. Hands wipe windows, cleaning panes ($9/window per side) for a clear view of any neighboring forests or pies, and fingers pop out screens and remove dust and bugs ($1.50/screen). Water blasts walls during pressure-washing services, rinsing away mildew and lichen while removing stains, leaving paint jobs looking minimalist instead of expressionist. One side of a one-story house can be pressure washed for $150, and $50 for each additional story and side.
Higher Ground Rainwater Systems
The technicians at Higher Ground Rainwater Systems like the look of a cloudy sky—they just want to make sure that any rain that falls ends up in the right place. To that end, they clean out gutters and install protection systems with meshed steel that repels debris. With water now routed correctly, the technicians might build harvesting systems, which capture rainwater in secure tanks either above ground or below the earth. That stored rainwater can either irrigate yards or tie into a home's plumbing system, cutting down on water bills and allowing for the purest of homemade lemonades. When not dealing with rain, Higher Ground's technicians also wash windows and home exteriors, relying on pressurized water for the latter task.
