Health & Safety
Mold and Mildew are Major Health Hazards!
According to the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine:
“The presence of mold adversely affects human health through three processes: allergy, infection, and toxicity.”
In simpler words, mold can cause illness and in some rare instances even death. Mold and mildew can be found inside and outside of your home.
To reduce the risk of mold and mildew in your home, it must be controlled from its source, from where it grows… the outside. Controlling exterior mold greatly reduces the chance of mold and mildew transferring into your home. By controlling the mold, it helps your family or employees not to be exposed.
Did you ever drive down the road and notice that some homes or office buildings have greenish mildew or black mold on the side of their building? This is the result of poor curb appeal and is a breeding ground for mold and mildew. We at Chicago Racoons will do pressure washing service and eliminate all the mold and mildew and at the same time giving your home or office building a brand new look.
Concrete and Sidewalks
Concrete and sidewalks are not immune to the mold and mildew process either. Over time they lose their white appearance and begin to get black or even green with mold and mildew. Concrete is very easy to clean and is a very easy way to make a home have very good curb appeal. When we pressure wash a house, the sidewalks are always included in the job.
Concrete and sidewalks also can carry mold and mildew. Have you ever noticed sidewalks and concrete, in general, losing their white appearance and turning black or even green with mold and mildew? We can clean your sidewalks, driveway, and concrete to give it back its natural look!
If you have ever sold your car, one of the first things you did was clean it, right? So why not do this with your most valuable possession? Clean home increases curb appeal and will be more attractive to potential buyers. It may even boost your appraisal price by thousands of dollars. So it makes sense to spend so little money for a very huge return. That is why many homeowners choose to get their home pressure washed before putting it on the market.
