As a professional painter, our customer, Mark in Largo, knows the importance of preparing a surface for a new coat of paint.
Throughout the ages, clay tile roofs have been a popular and durable way to protect building structures. The popularity of terracotta tiles as a roofing material has waxed and waned over the centuries, but one thing is for certain, these roofs are popular in Clearwater, Florida. Why is that so?
A guide to your DIY project: How-to Videos on Pressure Washing Basics - Using a Power Washer Correctly
I have collected a variety of videos and keep doing so to support you with any power washing DYI projects you might have.
Power washing is one of the best ways to keep a variety of surfaces on your property clean and free of organic material and other contaminants.
If you find yourself frequently using a pressure washer to clean various elements around your Clearwater area home or business, the question has probably arisen if you should buy your unit. Pressure washing is a great way to clean surfaces such as driveways, garage floors, sidewalks, sidings, patios, roofs and other outdoor areas, even garden furniture! The force exerted by a power washer will make quick work of your cleaning job, so you'll spend much less time doing maintenance, thus freeing you to do other things.
Here in the Clearwater and Tampa Bay area, we sure do love our outdoor living. With warm weather for most of the year, our backyard living spaces, which often include patios and decks, get a lot of use. That means these surfaces see a lot of foot traffic, not to mention the spills that happen when you cook or eat outside.
If you're planning to undertake a large painting project, proper preparation is key to a successful job. That preparation often involves stripping old paint from the surface that needs new coats. Removing old paint, however, is a time-consuming and tedious proposition if you do it by hand. Fortunately, pressure washing is a viable alternative to doing the job manually.
Homeownership involves considerable annual maintenance. When you consider all the dirt, general grime and organic matter that roofs, siding, driveways and more can accumulate, the work becomes never ending to keep your property looking good. If you have a pool, as many residents in the Clearwater area do, you have even more work.
Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a wonderful Holiday Season 2019!

One of the most common jobs that we do at DPI Pressure Washing in Clearwater is pressure washing driveways. First impressions are important. When someone visits your property for the first time, the driveway is one of the first things that they see.
When holidays come around, you want every part of your home to look great, whether it's inside or outside. Taking care of exterior maintenance in Clearwater is easy at any time of the year because it never gets too cold.
Metal roofs are popular in the Clearwater area for both homes and businesses because of their ability to withstand the high winds of tropical storms and hurricanes. The average lifespan of a metal roof is slightly longer than for asphalt.
Residential and commercial roofs in the Clearwater area can sure take a beating during the course of a typical year. High humidity levels and salt spray, if you are near the ocean, do their work daily, while the occasional tropical storm pounds dirt and debris and make a dingy roof look even worse. Soon, moss, algae or lichen can begin to take hold and slowly damage your roof, shortening its life.
We hope you have a really spoooookey time tonight!
Watch out for trick-or-treaters to get into the mood for a fun Halloween night tonight ...

We went to clean a community in Seminole the other day and were very happy to receive such a positive response from the president of this building complex after we were done.
Some older homes and commercial buildings in the Clearwater area can have roofs or cement siding that contain asbestos. Asbestos was commonly used as a component in many different building components between 1930 and 1950. Older building materials that contain asbestos can also include base flashing, cement wallboard, asphalt and vinyl floor tile and vinyl sheet flooring.
When it comes to cleaning your roof, you have two options: do the job yourself with rented equipment or hire a qualified professional to do the work for you. Because of the hassle of climbing up on a ladder and the danger involved in doing so, many homeowners opt to have a contractor do the job instead. At the same time, however, some may put off the job, thinking that the cost will be prohibitive.
Cleaning your roof is much less expensive than you think, especially when the method used is power- or softwashing.
Almost every day we hear reports on the news about how consumers need to pay attention to the environment to save the Earth from pollution, global warming and similar issues. In many instances, maintaining a clean home and property in Clearwater, FL, will, by the use of harsh cleaning solutions, contribute to the degradation of our environment. When you use pressure washing as part of your cleaning regimen you can significantly reduce the impact on Mother Nature.
Tile roofs are common in the Clearwater-Tampa Bay area. After all, they are the perfect accompaniment to the Spanish architecture that our regional favors for construction. A well-constructed terracotta tile roof can last 100 years and even longer with the proper care. Not only are tile roofing materials durable, but they are also fire resistant.
In a climate like here in Clearwater, the exteriors of buildings take big beatings. Sun, heat, humidity, winds and tropical storm all combine to batter your home or business. One of the exterior areas that takes the hardest beating is your roof. Because the roof is up high, we often don't think about it until it becomes discolored or otherwise show massive amounts of accumulated dirt and debris.
I'm wishing you a really
fun and enjoyable
Labor Day Weekend!
Since many homeowners in Clearwater and the Tampa Bay area take care of their pools themselves, we thought we have Matt from Swim University, who is a self-proclaimed "algae hater" ;-) tell you in his video how to get rid of that nasty green algae himself.
For many parts of the country, termites, aka wood destroying organisms (WDOs), are a significant problem that cause millions in property damage annually and create unsafe living conditions.
