Pressure Washing Howell NJ

In its extreme high pressure form, water is used in many industrial cleaning applications requiring the removal of surface layers as well as dust-free cutting of some metals and concrete. For exterior applications, gas or propane powered pressure washers provide enhanced mobility not available in electric models, as they do not require use in proximity to an electrical outlet. However, for indoor applications, electric pressure washers produce no exhaust and are much quieter than their gas or propane powered counterparts. Pressure Washing Howell NJ.

High-pressure water, in combination with special chemicals, aids in the removal of graffiti. This process (especially when the water is hot) is used as a quick rinser of the softened graffiti. Sometimes people use a pressurized mixture of air/sand or water/sand to blast off the surface of the vandalized area, thus etching the surface and therefore making it extremely difficult for anyone to ever use high-pressure cleaning as a follow-up process. Sandblasting, when used in graffiti removals, often overcleans a surface and is capable of leaving a permanent scar on the building surface. Pressure Washing Howell NJ.

Some pressure washers, in combination with a particular nozzle, allow detergent to be introduced into the water stream, assisting in the cleaning process. Two types of chemical injectors are available — a high-pressure injector that introduces the chemical after the water leaves the pump (a downstream injector) and a low-pressure injector that introduces the chemical before water enters the pump (an upstream injector). The type of injector used is related to the type of detergent used, as there are many chemicals that will damage a pump if an upstream injector is used. Pressure Washing Howell NJ.

Pressure washers are dangerous tools and should be operated with due regard to safety instructions. The water pressure near the nozzle is powerful enough to strip flesh from bone. Particles in the water supply are ejected from the nozzle at great velocities. The cleaning process can propel objects dislodged from the surface being cleaned, also at great velocities. Pressure washers have a tendency to break up tarmac if aimed directly at it, due to high pressure water entering cracks and voids in the surface.

Most readily available consumer units, commonly found online or at hardware stores, are electric- or petrol-powered. The electric ones plug into a normal outlet, use cold tap water and typically deliver pressure up to about 2,000 psi (140 bar). Petrol powered units can often deliver twice that pressure, but due to the hazardous nature of the engine exhaust, they are unsuitable for enclosed or indoor areas. Some models can generate hot water, which can be ideal for loosening and removing oil and grease. Pressure Washing Howell NJ.

pressure washer is a high pressure mechanical sprayer that can be used to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles, concrete surfaces, etc. The volume of a pressure washer is expressed in either gallons or litres per minute, often designed into the pump and not variable. A pump's pressure, expressed in pounds per square inch, pascals, or bar (deprecated but in common usage), is also designed into the pump but can be varied by adjusting the unloader valve. Machines that produce pressures from 750 to 30,000 psi (5 to 200 MPa) or more are available.

The basic pressure washer consists of:

Power Washing Howell NJ

The Howell NJ area includes a very diverse geographical section of New Jersey, with many different power washing applications being required to be a full service exterior cleaning contractor. Xtreme SRG offers power washing services for residential and commercial property owners in all sections of Howell NJ.

Roof cleaning is one of the services that Howell NJ residential home owners are most in need of. The heavily wooded properties that make this section of Howell NJ a very desirable living area also may increase the growth rate of Gloeocapsa Magma Algae. This is the organic growth that is responsible for the ugly and destructive black stains commonly seen on the north side of many homes. In heavily shaded and wooded properties it is not uncommon to find this growth on all roof areas of a home in Howell NJ. 

Xtreme SRG is a pressure cleaning contractor also referred to as a power washing contractors, but very little power is ever used in the roof cleaning process. The shingle cleaning process used by Xtreme SRG is a soft wash that incorporates highly specialized cleaning compounds and only enough pressure to distribute the roof cleaning solution. These black roof stains which are the result of moisture and mold spore growth, happen most often in areas with pines trees, old growth oak or other deciduous trees that shade the sun and prevent the roof area from thoroughly drying out. The Xtreme SRG roof cleaning process completely removes the growth and stains, returning your shingles their attractive appearance. Power Washing Howell NJ.

The power washing of outdoor decks in Howell NJ requires Xtreme SRG to have cleaning expertise for a diverse group of wood, composites and other commonly used decking materials.

Cedar Deck Cleaning Howell NJ

Cedar decking demands regular cleaning to maintain its great natural appeal. The use of high pressure washing is not recommended for cedar decks. Cedar is a very durable wood against the natural elements but it is soft in texture and can be easily scared and gouged with high water pressure. Xtreme SRG uses special cleaning solutions manufactured and mixed specifically for the safe application on cedar decking. Power Washing Howell NJ.

Pressure Treated Deck Cleaning Howell NJ

Treated decks are very similar in nature to cedar. They require extreme care and minimal pressure when cleaning. Power Washing Howell NJ.

Composite Deck Cleaning Howell NJ

Most composite decking is made from a percentage of recycled material making it a green building material. The colors in most products run completely through and can add visual appeal, as well as providing a practical, low-maintenance outdoor deck material. Originally advertised as no maintenance, composite decking does require regular cleaning. 

Power Washing / House Washing for Howell NJ residents usually involves only a minimum amount of water pressure. Xtreme SRG is capable of cleaning homes with vinyl siding, brick, wood siding, stucco, aluminum siding or cedar shingles. High Pressure cleaning on homes can push water into unwanted areas and create more harmful effects then good, low pressure cleaning is better for many types of siding and soft exterior surfaces.

Roof Cleaning Howell NJ

roof is the covering on the uppermost part of a building. A roof protects the building and its contents from the effects ofweather and the invasion of animals. Structures that require roofs range from a letter box to a cathedral or stadium,dwellings being the most numerous.

In most countries a roof protects primarily against rain. In Persia the citizens used their roofs for milling wheat, farming, gardens and extra space. Depending upon the nature of the building, the roof may also protect against heatsunlight, cold, snow and wind. Other types of structure, for example, a garden conservatory, might use roofing that protects against cold, wind and rain but admits light. A verandah may be roofed with material that protects against sunlight but admits the other elements. Roof Cleaning Howell NJ.

The characteristics of a roof are dependent upon the purpose of the building that it covers, the available roofing materials and the local traditions of construction and wider concepts of architectural design and practice and may also be governed by local or national legislation.

Restoration Howell NJ

Building restoration describes a particular treatment approach and philosophy within the field of architectural conservation. According the U.S. Secretary of Interior's standards, restoration is defined "as the act or process of accurately depicting the form, features, and character of a property as it appeared at a particular period of time by means of the removal of features from other periods in its history and reconstruction of missing features from the restoration period."

In the field of historic preservation, building restoration can refer to the action or process of accurately revealing, recovering or representing the state of a historic building, as it appeared at a particular period in its history, while protecting its heritage value. Work is often performed to reverse decay, or alterations made to the building after its initial construction. A part of heritage restoration can involve the replacement of outdated heating and cooling systems with newer ones, or the installation of climate controls that never existed at the time of building. Tsarskoye Selo, the complex of former royal palaces outside St Petersburg in Russia are an example of this sort of work. Physical materials of an earlier time, that might have been state of the art at the time of construction, might have failed and now need replacement with contemporary better functioning, but aesthetically similar materials. Restoration of buildings at the Bauhaus inDessauGermany corrected a failed c. 1925 peat composition roof. Restoration Howell NJ.

Exterior and interior paint colors present similar problems over time. Air pollution, acid rain, and sun take a toll, and often many layers of non-original paints are applied before an attempt at restoration is made. Color spectrum analysis of old paint now allows a corresponding chemical recipe to be produced. But this is often only a beginning as many of the original materials are either unstable or in many cases environmentally unsound. Many eighteenth century greens were made with arsenic, a material no longer allowed in paints. Another problem occurs when the original pigment came from a material no longer available. For example, in the early to mid-19th century, some browns were produced from bits of ground mummies.

In this case organizations like Britain's National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty will work with a historic paint color recreator like Farrow and Ball to replicate the antique color in durable, stable, and environmentally safe materials. In the United States the National Trust for Historic Preservation works similarly with Fine Paints of Europea small manufacturer located in the US state of Vermont that uses mostly Dutch and Swedish pigments and binders. The polychrome painted interiors of the Vermont State House and Boston Public Library are examples of this type of heritage restoration. Restoration Howell NJ.

Storm restoration is the restoring of a building due to damage from a severe storm. Most damage is caused by strong wind gusts or hail, but may also include large amounts of rainfall as well as extreme storms such as tornadoes and hurricanes. The majority of storm damage occurs on roofs, sides of structures, and in basements, but over time causes damage to the interior. Unlike heritage restoration, storm restoration takes place on buildings with no historic significance as well. Restoration Howell NJ.

Driveway Sealing Howell NJ

Sealcoating your asphalt will restore a dark black appearance while putting the flexibility back into your job. New asphalt 1 year or less is dark black in color and shows a smooth finish. As time goes on your asphalt will start to fade to a lighter gray color. This is the sun drying out the liquid tar in the asphalt and making it vulnerable to cracking and seam splitting. Sealing  your asphalt will slow the brake down process and restore the color of your job. Driveway Sealing Howell NJ.

We seal driveways , parking lots , cart paths and roads with seal master coal tar to ensure a long lasting application. Asphalt should be sealed every 1 to 3 years depending on the amount of car traffic, sunlight and thickness of  your blacktop. 

Cleaning the blacktop properly will allow the sealer to soak into the asphalt and leave a smooth finish.

Parking lots and large driveways should be cleaned at least twice a year of dirt, sand, salt and loose stone by the landscaper of your property. Driveway Sealing Howell NJ.

All vegetation along curbs, concrete, aprons, pavers, and in cracks should be sprayed with ground clear or any other weed killer during these two cleanings. This will prevent further damage to unprotected cracks and seam splitting in your blacktop.

All cracks in your asphalt need to be addressed with hot pour crack filler. This seal master crack filler starts out in solid blocks of tar and is melted down to a thick pour able liquid. Its then poured into a large canister and triangle squeegeed into all cracked areas.

Addressing the cracks in your asphalt must be done in order to maximize on the life of your driveway, parking lot, cart path or private road. We will give you a professional job without stopping operation of your business Driveway Sealing Howell NJ.

Sealcoat is a liquid that is applied to asphalt to protect it from oxidation and the damage caused by winter cracking, as well as UV rays and traffic. In areas of the world that experience freezing and thawing, the reapplication timeline will likely be sped up.

Sealcoating is needed in cold climates, but is useful in warmer climates as well. Since asphalt is a petroleum product, other petroleum products will react with the surface. This includes vehicle oil and gasoline. The sealcoat will act as a barrier against those materials. A sealcoat is not a crack filling agent; this must be done prior to applying the sealcoat. Properly applied, sealcoat can save an owner huge costs over the life of a hot mix asphalt pavement. Driveway Sealing Howell NJ.

Concrete Sealing Howell NJ

Concrete sealers are applied to concrete to protect it from corrosion and staining in Howell NJ. They either block the pores in the concrete to reduce absorption of water and saltsor form an impermeable layer which prevents such materials from passing. Concrete Sealing Howell NJ.

The American Concrete Institute, Portland Cement Association, and National Ready Mix Concrete Association, state that most damage to concrete is attributable to moisture intrusion: alkali-silica reaction (ASR), chemical intrusionfreeze/thaw, and corrosion of reinforcements.

Six major compounds are used in concrete sealers: acrylic resinsepoxysilicatessilanesiloxane, epoxies, and polyester sealers. Concrete Sealing Howell NJ.

After many years in the concrete sealing business in Howell NJ, and trying more types of concrete sealers than we can count, we grew tired of running into the same problems over and over again... delamination, popping, flaking, pitting, staining, poor longevity, inadequate surface penetration and every other problem imaginable.

As many other Howell NJ concrete contractors have experienced at some point, sealing jobs became a liability instead of being as successful and profitable as we knew they should be. Concrete Sealing Howell NJ.

Curing and sealing concrete in Howell NJ increases the strength and durability of the concrete surface. The appearance and visual coloration of decorative concrete is greatly enhanced. New colored concrete should be cured with a liquid applied, film-forming curing compound. Curing with plastic sheeting or water spray should never be utilized with colored concrete. Sealing concrete provides economical protection for floors and hardscapes, reducing maintenance costs. It also minimizes the effect of de-icing salts and exposure to gas or oil and discoloration from dirt and spills. Concrete Sealing Howell NJ.

Warning: Treated surfaces in Howell NJ may be slippery during application prior to drying, and when wet with water or liquids after drying. Concrete should be textured sufficiently to eliminate potential slipping hazards. In addition, use a non-slip additive when sealing. Interior floors may be maintained with a slip resistant wax. Test and confirm that the material is adequately slip resistant prior to opening installation area to any traffic.

Once your interlocking brick pavers have been cleaned, we return the following day to sweep sand into all paver joints, in most cases, we typically use a high grade polymeric joint stabilizing sand.  We then proceed to plate compact and activate the binder.  The following day we will seal your brick pavers with Techni-Seal's Thermoplastic micro porous acrylic sealant to enhance the beauty of your pavers.  If you desire a sealer which does not change the appearance of the brick we can apply a natural finish Siloxane to waterproof the surface without any visible change in appearance or color.

When unqualified contractors and residents clean & seal their brick pavers with their own the sealant, your pavers may become blushed and blotchy.  This typically happens with improper cleaning, the lack of proper equipment used as well as the lack of knowledge and use of the chemicals being applied. These situations can be very expensive to correct.  Restore Interlocking Pavers Howell NJ.

Why maintain your interlocking brick pavers and stamped concrete in Howell NJ?

Over time all surfaces take a beating from the elements. Rain, wind, ultraviolet light and freeze-thaw cycles and deicing materials all combine in a constant attack on your investment. In the short term this may go unnoticed, however if left unprotected, over time, irreversible and costly damage may occur. Restore Interlocking Pavers Howell NJ.

All sealers we apply in Howell NJ are commercial grade. This is important because there are many low grade, low quality sealers available on the market which prematurely break down, discolor or delaminate. The main reason that people seal their pavers and stamped concrete is for aesthetics... creating an enhanced "wet" look, which creates a darkening effect and satin to semi-gloss shine. The acrylic in the sealer enhances the natural color tones and adds a semi-gloss shine. The gloss level is dependent on the solid content of the acrylic, porosity of the substrate, and how many previous coats have been applied. Typically only two coats of our high quality sealer is needed. If a natural look is desired then we can apply a natural look sealer which will protect, without changing the color of the surface to which it is applied. Aesthetics aside, sealing is essential to the long term durability of the product in Howell NJ.

Another big problem is the sanded joints between the paver bricks themselves. Over a number of years in Howell NJ, contaminates and debris build up in the joint. Weeds, grass and moss begin to grow. Restore Interlocking Pavers Howell NJ.

In order to address this problem we are able to clean out all the joints between the brick and install a polymeric sand. This sand will greatly reduce and in most cases completely eliminate this problem. How it works is that the sand actually has a binder mixed into it and after our trained technician's install and activate the product it hardens up the joint, thus preventing not only weed and vegetation growth, but also washout as well as sand being tracked into your home or swimming pool.

Vinyl Fence Cleaning Howell NJ

synthetic fenceplastic fence or (when made of vinyl) vinyl or PVC fence is a fence made using synthetic plastics, such as vinyl (PVC), polypropylenenylonpolythene (polyethylene) or from various recycled plastics. Synthetic fencing was first introduced to the agricultural industry in the 1980s as a low cost/durable solution for long lasting horse fencing. Now, synthetic fencing is used for agricultural fencinghorse racing and residential use. Synthetic fence is generally available preformed, in a wide variety of styles. It tends to be easy to clean, resists weathering and has low maintenance requirements. However, it also can be more expensive than comparable materials, and cheaper products can be less sturdy than more traditional fence materials. Some types may become brittle, faded or degrade in quality after long exposure to extreme hot or cold conditions. Vinyl Fence Cleaning Howell NJ.

Synthetic materials used for residential fences can be in a solid cast form, or a reinforced hollow rail design that resembles sawn timber, Most commonly extruded profiles. Higher quality vinyl fence components are ribbed or include reinforcements, often of aluminum, for added strength. For agricultural use, synthetic fencing can consist of a heavy synthetic strapping product inlaid with cable, synthetic-coated high-tensile wire, or a synthetic coating over a wood or metal rail or plank. Residential synthetic fencing products are usually hollow, and thus too fragile to contain livestock, but some designs may be suitable for containing dogs or other pets. Residential grade rails are also made of a thinner material. Vinyl Fence Cleaning Howell NJ.

Synthetic fences are used as the side-rails along horse racecourses, because they make a good visual barrier for the horses, but are unlikely to cause injury if horses break through them.

Synthetic fence profiles are made in a wide range of sizes and shapes. They come in many different colors which are integrated during the extrusion process, which means they do not require painting. Usually this ability to resist discoloration leads many manufacturers to offer very long warranties, from decades up to "lifetime" for some brands. Vinyl Fence Cleaning Howell NJ.

Synthetic fence posts are placed into pre-dug holes, or sometimes the synthetic post is fitted over a pre-set post of wood, rebar, or pipe for additional sturdiness. Rails or pickets are inserted into specifically designed slots and grooves within the rails.

Synthetic fence materials are often in the form of rigid rails or posts, but flexible forms are also used, including mesh for hazard fencing or deer fencing, or string, rope or tape of polypropylene interwoven with stainless steel wires for electric fences ("electric braid"). Vinyl Fence Cleaning Howell NJ.

Aluminum Fence Cleaning Howell NJ

The only regular maintenance other than cleaning is inspecting the fasteners. Fasteners should be inspected once a year. Aluminum Fence Cleaning Howell NJ.

Over time fasteners may loosen and may need to be tightened down as necessary. A light coat of floor or car wax can be applied to the tops of any exposed fasteners every 3-6 months to help prevent oxidation (more often if you are located in a high UV and salt spray climates).

Fastener surface rust is a normal part of the aging process. This does not affect the integrity and strength of the fastener. Aluminum Fence Cleaning Howell NJ.

During the natural aging process of the powder coating you may notice a white ‘chalk’ or powder that forms on the surface. This is normal and can be cleaned and polished (Using ‘Vim’, ‘Soft Scrub’ or a cut-polish) to bring back the sheen.

Railing should be cleaned at least twice a year with a mild, non-abrasive soap and water, using a soft sponge. In areas where salts and pollutants are more prevalent (beach front or industrial areas) then the railings should be cleaned more frequently. Always rinse with fresh water to remove any residual soap. Aluminum Fence Cleaning Howell NJ.

Avoid using a dry sponge, which may scratch the surface.

Use regular glass cleaner for glass.

To remove minor scuff marks or scratches use ‘Soft Scrub’ or ‘Vim’ or equivalent mild or nonabrasive products.

To remove paint or sealant spots use Methylated Spirits, Turpentine, White Spirits, Alcohol or Isopropanol.

Always remove any sap, tree seeds, bugs, etc. as soon as possible, as sun exposure and heat will make them more difficult to remove. Aluminum Fence Cleaning Howell NJ.

Retaining Wall Cleaning Howell NJ

It is much better to have your property cleaned routinely to prevent costly damage from mold  algae, and other organic compounds. With that being said we can still turn most eye sores into pleasant sight again. Retaining Wall Cleaning Howell NJ.

Retaining walls are structures designed to restrain soil to unnatural slopes. They are used to bound soils between two different elevations often in areas of terrain possessing undesirable slopes or in areas where the landscape needs to be shaped severely and engineered for more specific purposes like hillside farming or roadway overpasses.

retaining wall is a structure designed and constructed to resist the lateral pressure of soil when there is a desired change in ground elevation that exceeds theangle of repose of the soil.

A basement wall is thus one kind of retaining wall. But the term usually refers to a cantilever retaining wall, which is a freestanding structure without lateral support at its top. These are cantilevered from a footing and rise above the grade on one side to retain a higher level grade on the opposite side. The walls must resist the lateral pressures generated by loose soils or, in some cases, water pressures. Retaining Wall Cleaning Howell NJ.

Every retaining wall supports a “wedge” of soil. The wedge is defined as the soil which extends beyond the failure plane of the soil type present at the wall site, and can be calculated once the soil friction angle is known. As the setback of the wall increases, the size of the sliding wedge is reduced. This reduction lowers the pressure on the retaining wall. 

The most important consideration in proper design and installation of retaining walls is to recognize and counteract the tendency of the retained material to move downslope due to gravity. This creates lateral earth pressure behind the wall which depends on the angle of internal friction (phi) and the cohesive strength (c) of the retained material, as well as the direction and magnitude of movement the retaining structure undergoes. Retaining Wall Cleaning Howell NJ.

Lateral earth pressures are zero at the top of the wall and - in homogenous ground - increase proportionally to a maximum value at the lowest depth. Earth pressures will push the wall forward or overturn it if not properly addressed. Also, any groundwater behind the wall that is not dissipated by a drainage system causes hydrostatic pressure on the wall. The total pressure or thrust may be assumed to act at one-third from the lowest depth for lengthwise stretches of uniform height.

Unless the wall is designed to retain water, It is important to have proper drainage behind the wall in order to limit the pressure to the wall's design value. Drainage materials will reduce or eliminate the hydrostatic pressure and improve the stability of the material behind the wall. Drystone retaining walls are normally self-draining.
