Do You Have a Salt Stained Driveway?

Deicers can affect concrete both physically and chemically. According to the Utah DOT, the physical effects of deicers on concrete are mainly manifested in increased damage from freeze-thaw cycling, while the chemical effects include detrimental reactions between the deicers and the cement paste, aggravation of expansive aggregate-cement reactions, and initiation and acceleration of corrosion when reinforcing steel is present in the concrete. Damage from deicer exposure can be manifested as surface scaling, cracking, concrete degradation, delamination, and premature failure.

Hopefully, we are past the point of getting any more snow so get those salt stains removed from your driveway and don't let more unnecessary damage happen to, what can be, one of the most expensive investments of your home.

If you find that you need help to clean and/or seal your concrete to prevent more damage being done...

Do I Really Need to Clean, Polish and Seal Granite?

Why is it so important to protect natural stone?
To preserve the longevity of a natural stone installation it is very important to protect it with a proper sealer and clean with products designed especially for natural stone. All natural stone surfaces are porous. As long as there is an absorption factor, stone will stain and deteriorate over time. When your stone is properly sealed, the absorbion factor is eliminated.
Do I need to seal all my granite surfaces?
Yes! If you want to protect your investment and prolong the life of the material. Although we normally think of these surfaces as “hard as rock” but this can be misleading. They all have varying degrees of porosity and if left unsealed can easily be stained by everyday spills (juices, coffee, wine, oil…etc.). Acidic substances can even etch these surfaces and potentially ruin an expensive material. Although sealing does not make the material bullet-proof, it will reduce the chance of permanent staining, etching and/or discoloration.

We can help you protect your investment!

What's More Important Than Clean?

Dirty concrete, smudged windows, mold on your siding, dryer vents packed full of lint, decks that are algae covered, are just a few of the scenarios we run across every day. One of the other factors they have in common is that there are safety and health aspects of each of these to take into consideration -your's and others that may be visiting your property.

What's the difference?
Yes, we are a different kind of company. Our main concern is your health and safety. So in keeping that in mind, here are some things that we have done to ensure that your health and safety stay our priority.
  • We are certified through the United Association of Mobile Contract Cleaners (UAMCC). This testing consists of proving 5 years in the industry and third-party testing. These certifications cannot be paid for, but have to be earned. We are certified specifically in Wash Water Control, Window Cleaning, Hard Surface Restoration, Roof Cleaning and have tested for Safety Awareness.
  • We have specialized, on-going training on how to clean properly so as to not cause damage to your property, or cause problems down the road for you as a property owner or manager. 
  • Every year we go to training classes of various kinds from business management practices to hands-on technical training in the use of chemicals, equipment and safety.
  • We are fully insured.
These are the few of the things that make us different from other cleaning companies. Ultimately, what's more important than clean? The answer to that is your health and safety. We have the added benefit that once we've made it safer and healthier, it's also cleaner!

How You Can Have the Safest, Cleanest and Healthiest Establishment


Oil, grease, dirt, gum, chemicals, waste, mold, algae...these are just a few of the contaminants that are drug into your establishment from foot traffic.  All of that dirt can not only be unsightly, but could become quite slippery when wet, and may result in falls.  Add to that the health concerns with those disgusting contaminants entering your establishment.  This is an unnecessary expense that your company could avoid by doing some simple maintenance. It's not just pressure washing!  The cost of maintenance is a small price to pay for the peace of mind you receive, knowing that your establishment is being financially protected and visitors are entering a safe atmosphere. You will have the exterior looking fresh and new for many years to come because you have hired a skilled professional.

Super Secret Window Cleaning Tip!

Sometimes, you don't need your windows professionally cleaned just yet, but you have puppy nose art, baby hand prints or fingerprints on your windows.  What do you do?  Windex, paper towels? Grandma's recipe for window cleaner with vinegar, ammonia, newspapers? STINKY!

I beg you...please do not use the Windex!  Have you ever noticed that when you clean your windows there are always gunky corners that are impossible to clean?  When you rub those corners, something smears all over the rest of the window and you're back to square one.  The reason for those impossible corners is Windex, and the like, contains wax polymers that buff to a beautiful shine, momentarily, only to turn to gunk in the corners in a short time, building up more and more every time you "clean" your windows.

So now the secret that you have all been waiting for!  Here is what your professionals use.  Are you ready?  It's as simple as a 50/50 mix of Isopropyl Alcohol and steam distilled water.  That's it?  Yep, that's it.

Here's the benefits:  It's cheap!  We like to use the 90% isopropyl, but even the 70% will work.  Just add a little more of the alcohol than water.  We can get a quart of it for just over $2.00, and the water is practically free since we make reverse osmosis, deionized water for our professional window cleaning.  You can just get a gallon of steam distilled water at the local grocery store.  Again, cheap!
Put it in a spray bottle and you're ready to go.  We suggest you use a low nap microfiber cloth so as to not leave a lot of lint.

Another benefit is the germ killing properties in the alcohol.  We use it in our own home for bathroom chrome fixtures, mirrors, stove tops, refrigerator handles and more to remove fingerprints, lint, crud etc.! Again you are saving money on cleaning products.

Biggest benefit:  No more waxy, gunky corners!

This is definitely not a replacement for your professional window cleaner.  I would not suggest trying to do this on the exterior windows, but it's really good for an interior touch-up. Now when your guests ask you how did you get that bathroom mirror so lint free and clean, tell them you have a super secret recipe.

  • They are not used, since windows stay closed in the winter. 
  • They block some of your view.
  • They block that sunlight that is so important in the long winter months.
  • Your windows will stay cleaner longer.  Interior screens trap dust because of forced air heat and exterior screens collect falling leaves, allergens and sometimes even snow, again impeding your view.

When you remove your screens, use a marker to write on the top of the frame,(where it will not be seen), a description of where screen belongs, such as "Master Bdrm 1".  Then store in the basement or garage until spring.  In the spring, only replace screens that are needed.  If you never open that window, why cover it up?!

Which window would you rather look through?
