Aaahh... don't you love it when those cold fronts start coming in? Fall is in the air that means Thanksgiving and Christmas are just a few weeks away. It's not too late to get your home in tip-top shape for your decorating and lighting decor. Fall is a great time to not only clean up before decorating; it is also a great time to thoroughly look over structures and parts of your home that may be neglected.
Here are some other things you may want to consider checking off before the holidays:
1. Gutters- Cleaning gutters of debris and leaves is important so they can function properly. Clogged gutters can cause roof damage if left unattended.
2. HVAC system- Having your air and heating system checked is always a good idea in spring and fall.
3. Dryer vents- K&N Softwash can easily check out your dryer vents. Cleaning dryer vents prevent potential fires, reduces drying time, and conserves energy.

WHY HAVE YOUR BUSINESS POWER WASHED THIS FALL
Thank goodness 2020 is coming to an end soon. Even though we will be glad to say adios it doesn't mean that this fall shouldn't be used to invest in your commercial building. Pressure washing services in indeed an investment and should be done on a regular basis for many reasons. The front of a building and the parking lot leave the very first impression on your customers, patients or visitors. So as you are getting ready to put out your fall arrangements and decorations think about what the exterior of your business looks like right now. Here are a couple of other reasons why pressure washing is important.
1. Your Building Will Look Better
Perhaps the most important reason to hire a pressure washing company to clean the exterior of your commercial building is that it will make it look better. The heat and humidity of our summer months leave not only dust and dirt, but lots of mildew and mold on surfaces that you may overlook. Power washing will safely and quickly remove all dirt and mildew, leaving your brick, concrete, and paint looking exceptionally clean. With a beautiful, clean building those fall decorations will look super fantastic now and into the next year.
2. Awnings and Canopies Appear Cleaner
If your building has awnings and/or canopies to protect the interior from sun damage, but also protect your customers in the entry way this is another often overlooked structure that can also suffer from the heat and humidity of summer. These structures will also tend to have bird droppings, nests and tree leaves, etc that lead to stains on canopies if they are fabric. Power washing ensures your canopy and awnings are free and clear of these stains and dirt. An easy way to increase the value and perceived looks of your building by your customers and employees.
3. Parking Lots Last Longer
Pressure washing your parking lot is also very important. While cleaning is important, it is also critical to inspect your parking area for cracks, holes and other potentially dangerous obstacles. Routine cleaning of concrete and asphalt will extend the life of your parking lot by removing oils, tire markings, dirt and other debris as well and keep a well maintained appearance.
4. Keeping Sidewalks Safe
Finally, pressure washing the sidewalks and other concrete pathways approaching your building is very important. Neglected sidewalks can have pooling water, which leads to mildew. This is a fall hazard! Keep your customers and employees safe by making sure your walkways are clear of any debris, grass overgrowth and mildew. Pressure washing will easily remove any accumulated dirt as well and make your sidewalks look like new again.
All in all it's a wise investment to clean the exterior of your building at least twice per year. Trust us, your customers will notice!

DRYER VENT CLEANING BENEFITS
How often in a week do you use your dryer? For most people that would be at least 3 to 4 times per week. So when we think about the need to clean our dryer vents it's really ironic. A washer and dryer are used to clean.... but we never really think about the dust and lint that is probably lurking in that vent leading out of your home.
Dryer vent cleaning is a neglected task that can lead to fires in the home. According to the National Fire Protection Agency, nearly 17,000 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year. If your dryer vent is over ten feet in length, it can really become a fire hazard if left unserviced.
“Cleaning will reduce potential fire hazard” says Nate Falgoust, owner of K&N Softwash. “Cleaning will also reduce drying time saving you money.”

TOP QUESTIONS ABOUT PRESSURE WASHING HOMES AND RESIDENTIAL STRUCTURES AND ANSWERS
K&N Softwash gets lots of questions about soft washing or pressure washing homes and exterior structures. Let's get a few of those common questions answered right here. Of course we are always happy to talk with you about any questions you may have and look forward to having you as a K&N Softwash customer.
Why should I clean my roof?
Just because your roof seems less than appealing lately doesn't mean it's time for a costly replacement. Black streaks are caused by an algae that grows in South Louisiana and loves the moisture down here. K&N Softwash are professionals that can remove this algae. Your roof will look amazing and will give you 3-5 years before having to do it again. A clean roof is not only good curb appeal but a way to keep your roof healthy.
Do we sanitize?
Yes, K&N Softwash is certified and trained to sanitize residential and business exteriors. Our process includes using ecologically safe cleaners that will not only be safe for you and your family but will remove bacteria, mold and mildew from your home. Call us for a free quote and to get a quote on sanitizing your home today.
Will my wood fencing or deck get damaged from pressure washing?
K&N Softwash uses gentle cleaning and the proper cleansers to ensure your deck or fence will be made to look new again without any damage. While it may seem easier to do it yourself, it's very easy to damage wooden structures by using too much pressure or harsh chemicals. Too much pressure can cause gouging that will require repair. K&N Softwash understands the proper techniques required to make your wooden structures like new again.
Do I have to be home to have my home cleaned?
It is not necessary for you to be home on the day that we schedule your home or exterior structure cleaning. The only thing we need is access to water. We do want to make sure that you check your windows and doors to ensure they are shut so we can get to work.
As always we strive to give our customers the best service possible. We look forward to hearing from you. Remember no pressure = no damage.
Giving Back to the Community
2020 will be one of those years that will be remembered for many things. Many unfavorable events but also many opportunities for our communities to come closer together. Many of us have shared heartaches, separation of families, loss of jobs but we have done it all together.
South Louisiana will be stronger than ever as a result of the 2020 challenges. We will work hand in hand to help each other and make our communities better.
I understand the importance of community and I know that without the support of the surrounding communities I would never be able to have my own business. Customer service, professionalism and expertise in the power washing field are always at the forefront of every job.
Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to get an estimate on any business or residential cleaning job. I am proud to say that K&N Softwash is certified to properly sanitize as well. Thank you for your support over the years and into the future.
