Envirowash took an old, worn out deck and gave it a makeover!

Unprotected Wood is Subject to Damage!

Not only does it make your deck look great but staining also improves its permanency.

The first step done by Envirowash for protecting the wood decking is to wash all decking areas to remove mold, mildew and other atmospheric pollutants using low pressure and heated water. The second step in protection is neutralizing the wood using a wood brightener. Washing and neutralizing the wood prepares it to be stained. The final step in protecting the wood is staining and sealing it. The railings and raisers are Olympics' Ebony Solid and the handrail caps and decking are Olympics' Butternut Solid.

Take a look at your #garage floor. It's probably not as clean as you want it to be. That just means you need the services of professionals like us to do the garage and drive way cleaning for you. You can be confident that we have the right tools and that we know the right procedures to get the job done. Using special surface cleaners, we can safely pressure wash the garage concrete floor without damaging drywall, appliances or the electrical outlets. Oil stains, grease, paint, chewing gum and many other contaminants can be removed safely using our proprietary citrus based degreaser. After rinsing thoroughly using low pressure hot water, we neutralize the surface to achieve a proper pH level. Once the surface is dry we can repair #cracks using our proprietary 2 part epoxy, then stain and/or seal the surface with a high quality sealant. There are many options to choose from depending on your lifestyle and performance needs.

Siding

Siding Are you tired of seeing those stains on your siding? Do you still remember that shiny new look of the siding on your house? Afraid you might not get it back? Don't worry! You can still have your siding looking as good as new! Siding is the material placed on the walls of buildings, and is used mostly for houses. Siding comes in different shapes, sizes, and colors. Two of the most commonly used sidings come in vinyl and aluminum. These two sidings are popular due to the fact that it is inexpensive yet it still gives off the illusion of wood from afar. However, there is a flip side to vinyl and aluminum siding. Vinyl usually has wider seams than regular wood siding thus giving dirt more opportunity to stick. Some of these stains are hard to take out, the surface tends to be stubborn when removing unwanted dirt. Other stains tend to spread or smudge the moment you try to wipe it off the surface. Although vinyl and aluminum siding are, for the most part, considered as maintenance free, however it loses shine and starts gathering molds and mildew that are awful to look at. Some mold can even be dangerous to one's health if removed manually. Here at Envirowash we promise you a safer and more efficient way to remove the stubborn stains on your siding and have it looking good as new. With our advanced technology, we guarantee you a quick and smooth finish to your dirty vinyl or aluminum siding.
