Cleaning and maintaining your driveways, sidewalks, walkways, porches and patios will have a dramatic affect on your homes appearance and will show that you are a proud homeowner. Your community and neighbors will recognize this and appreciate it as well.
The dark coloring or staining on surfaces in Hawaii are typically not just dirt. Hawaii is a very humid environment and is conducive to the growth of various molds and mildews. These molds and mildews hold moisture and are extremely slippery at times. Slips and falls can not only injure you and your family, but can also injure the public leaving at risk for a lawsuit.
Concrete and most other surfaces are extremely pourous, by allowing mold and mildew to colonize on your surfaces will allow the pours to fill with moisture. This may cause cracking, swelling, discoloration and even speed up the decomposing process of your surface.
It is a fact that molds and mildews are a huge trigger of allergies. Asthma, dermatitis, excessive or regular nose bleeds, headaches and respiratory dysfunctions such as difficulty breathing and shortness of breath are also reported side effects
Increase the value of your home
Regular cleaning and maintenance of any type to your home increases the value. Appearance is a critical factor in determining a homes value. Example; Two identical homes, House (A) very clean and presentable home and house (B) fairly presentable home. 100% of the time House (A) will be assessed at more value and thus sell for more money at a quicker rate than house (B). Not only does house (A) increase their home value it also increases the value of the surrounding homes.
