House Washing Experts Explain Removing Green Algae

If you live in a beautiful part of New Jersey like Cherry Hill, you want your home to be as beautiful as its surroundings. You certainly don’t want unsightly green algae to accumulate on your siding. 

Unfortunately, this can happen. Algae often accumulates on siding after winter, when the combination of wet snow followed by spring showers creates an environment that is ideal for algae to thrive in.

Luckily, while algae can build up on your siding, this is not a problem you need to live with. Scheduling house washing service with our team at Diamond Roof Cleaning, serving homeowners in and around the Cherry Hill area, is key to removing algae from your siding and restoring your home to its pre-winter facade.

How Soft Wash House Washing Service Removes Algae from Your Siding Effectively and Safely

Removing algae from your home’s siding sooner rather than later when it builds up is important for many reasons. Naturally, you don’t want your home to be an eyesore. There’s even evidence to suggest that the presence of algae on your house’s siding can potentially have a negative influence on your overall mood throughout the day. Research consistently shows that when a person is in an environment that’s generally clean and attractive, their baseline emotional state tends to improve.

Additionally, you must consider the fact that if algae is not removed from your house’s exterior, over time, it’s possible for the algae to work its way into your home. This might have a detrimental impact on your health and comfort.

You simply need to keep in mind that removing algae is not necessarily a DIY task. While you may assume that you can remove algae on your own by rinsing your siding down with a garden hose, this method is not going to yield the desired results. On the other hand, if you were to attempt to remove algae by spraying your siding with a power washer or pressure washer, you run the risk of causing unexpected damage.

You’re much better off hiring professionals who specialize in soft wash house washing to handle this task for you. The soft wash approach to house washing is one of the many exterior property cleaning techniques we at Diamond Roof Cleaning specialize in. 

Our soft wash house washing method involves applying special eco-friendly detergents to your siding. These products are designed for the specific purpose of removing algae and grime. When mixed with a gentle rinse of water, they restore your home’s appearance without the risk of damage. 

At Diamond Roof Cleaning, offering house washing services throughout the Cherry Hill, NJ area, we believe you deserve a gorgeous home in which to live. We also believe you deserve the peace of mind that comes from knowing those washing your home will not damage it in the process. To that end, we use the most advanced methods to deliver quality results. Learn more about scheduling house washing service by contacting us online today or calling our office at (609) 929-5812.

It was easy to get a quote and schedule the work. They came out and definitely did a great job of cleaning the house. It is the cleanest it ever was. My only issue is that two of the exhaust fan covers were blown off (?) and no one said anything about it before they left. I did not get the covers back so I assume they were taken away. I'm attaching a picture of one of them. If it was at least mentioned, then I would have given a 5 star review. -Changed to 5 Stars- This is a class A company to deal with. The owner came out and inspected the damage and issued a reimbursement. He also offered to do the installation which was more than I expected. They really do care that their customers are 100% satisfied!

This is the second time I’ve used Diamond Roof Cleaning to wash my stuccoed home. I’d heard horror stories from others who’d had their homes power washed and questioned the owner, Mike, who gave me addresses of homes similar to mine so I might see his work. I liked what I saw and took a chance with DRC. They did a fantastic job. The workers were friendly, respectful of my property by removing cushions from the patio chairs to keep from damaging/wetting them and answered any questions I had. Now my house looks brand new and I couldn’t be happier.

We recently completed our fourth job with Michael and The Diamond Roof Cleaning crew. This time was cleaning the house and detached garage roofs included. Another beautiful job which started punctually and did not take long to complete. The house is 45 years old with mostly original western red cedar, which comes up looking new when they’re complete. I had started, 4 years ago, to replace the western red cedar on the south and SW corner. The contractor rode by after that cleaning, 3 years ago, and thought I had someone else replace the cedar because it looked new. I’d recommend them to anyone (and have) wishing to clean their house, walls or patios. You won’t be disappointed, I’m surely not.

There are only positive remarks I can make about Diamond Roof. They did a whole house soft clean, washed the windows, and made our stone walkways and patio look like they did when put in 20 years ago. Really! The two gentlemen doing the work were wonderful, too. We had two windows with lots of algae on them and I noticed that they came back to them a few times to wash them over and over again. Would definitely hire them again!

We had the house, roof and gutters cleaned and could not be happier with the results. This is the 3rd time we have used this company and have had a great experience every time. They were on time, professional and make the house look 10x better than when we do it ourselves.
