Cleaning Post Spring

We all know how spring cleaning is considered to be an essential part of every homeowner’s calendar, and you will find everyone trying to get inside every nook and cranny of their houses, and areas that they may have otherwise neglected throughout the year, and then giving them a thorough cleaning. Blankets and mattresses are aired out, all the windows are cleaned and so on. Spring cleaning is really important since we end up deep cleaning our house during the entire time, which is necessary, however, what a lot of us do not realize is that we should also be careful when cleaning post-spring as well.

After a cold and dreary winter, spring is considered to be very welcoming since the sun is out, the temperature is warmer and flowers are in full bloom and so on. However, at the same time, it also happens to lead to a rise in allergy symptoms, and a lot of people are left sneezing because of the amount of dust and pollen present in the air. So, once spring has passed, you should give your house a once over again to make sure that it does not have any remnants of pollen or other allergens that might continue to aggravate your allergies.

Our carpet alone ends up accumulating a lot of dust, allergens, pollens and other bacteria during this time, and can in turn, end up affecting the air quality of our house. This is why you need to send your carpet to a professional carpet cleaner post-spring so that they are able to get rid of any accumulated dust or bacteria in your carpet, because there is only so much you can do with a vacuum cleaner. So, sending your carpet to a professional cleaner at least once a year, preferably post-spring can be really beneficial for you.

Clean You Roof: Pressure Washing or Soft Washing?

A roof is basically your shelter. It is hence really important to take care of it and keep it clean. But unfortunately, roof cleaning can be tough. The materials of which roofs are usually made up of are difficult to handle. They include cement, metal and terracotta among many others. Your roofs need to be cleaned in a special way.

The opinions are divided into two parts on how your roof needs to be cleaned. One faction says that your roof needs to be cleaned with a water pressure cleaner while the other one says the completely opposite. They maintain that you should use soft washing.

The ones who say pressure cleaner is the better option form this opinion on the basis that pressure cleaners clean all the dirt, bacteria, slime, moss etc. rooted deep in the pores of the roof and give your roof a fresh and new look which increases its longevity. Pressure cleaners throw water at immense pressures and clean everything coming into its paths and it can reach the tightest of angles. A majority of the population maintain this view, including Matrix Roofing Glen Waverly.

The ones who root for soft washing are relatively smaller and not a lot of people are versed with this term. Soft washers generally say that they blasting high speeds of water on your roofing can potentially damage the concrete and your roof. It can make water reach all the nooks and crannies and then cause seepages, water hoarding, leakages etc. The way soft washing counters it is by applying a special mold on the roof which cleans all the dirt, bacteria etc. and then it is washed with normal water. Then the surface cleaner acts as a self-cleaner with a life of almost 1-5 years, totally depending on the environment.
