Mildew and Mold

Mildew is a common problem in here in northern Michigan.  Mildew grows in areas with heat, humidity and are out of the sun for long periods of time.  Airborne mold and fungus spores can also produce similar harmful deposits. SparkleWash® uses environmentally friendly, GREEN products, designed specifically to eliminate mildew and mold while also removing dirt and pollution. Our SparkleWash® soaps leave behind a clean surface that is not readily hospitable to mildew and mold spores, therefore will slow their re-appearance. We can also apply a proprietary SparkleWash® treatment to further retard the future growth of mold and mildew.   Besure to ask us for more details.

Chalking Paint

Oxidation—or chalking—is a chemical reaction between a painted surface, air and sunlight. This chalk film causes the finish of your house to appear dull or the color to fade. If the condition has not gone too far, SparkleWash® can often restore the finish to improve its appearance dramatically. Rain may cause chalk from the siding to run, streaking windows, brickwork and foundations. SparkleWash® can remove the streaks from these surfaces as well.
