Residential Pressure Washing in
Isle of Palms, SC
When you own a home in the Lowcountry, its exterior is constantly exposed to the elements, resulting in mildew, dirt, and pollen. When not properly cleaned, the exterior surfaces of your home like brick, stucco, and vinyl suffer. With time, they can even break down. At Palmetto Pressure Clean Isle of Palms, we use a specially-crafted cleaning solution and time-tested techniques to remove hazardous contaminants safely and effectively.
Unlike some pressure washers in Isle of Palms, we use a no-to-low pressure washing strategy for residential properties. Also called "soft washing," this process includes washing and rinsing your windows, along with the exterior face of your gutters. High-pressure tactics are effective against mildew, but they run the risk of causing damage to your siding and windows. Our soft wash cleaner is specifically designed to remove mildew and algae gently, yet effectively from many porous surfaces. Our professional pressure washers also manually brush your gutters with a stain-removing agent to remove unsightly black streaks.
Our soft pressure washing process not only cleans your home but protects it from high-pressure techniques that damage your paint and siding. With soft washing, you won't have to worry about diminished curb appeal or reduced resale value of your home.
These techniques use gentle water pressure and at the same time, apply an environmentally friendly cleaning solution to remove contaminants. With this strategy, your plants and other landscaped areas won't suffer any damage, which is why many homeowners prefer going this route. Once the cleaning agent has removed mold, algae, etc., our team thoroughly rinses the exterior of your home. After rinsing, your home will be left with a squeaky-clean appearance that will make your neighbors jealous in the best way possible.
Our residential pressure washing services don't end with soft washing. Here is a quick glance at a few other commonly requested services from homeowners just like you:
High-pressure cleaning with hot water. Our high-pressure cleaning services are great for many different surfaces, like concrete, brick, and stone.
Gutter and roof debris removal with subsequent flush and removal of bagged debris from property.
Low-to-no pressure roof treatment to remove black staining and unsightly streaks resulting from algae, mold, and other contaminants.
Cleaning of wood decks, fences, docks, decks, and more.
Benefits of Residential Pressure Washing in Isle of Palms, SC
Your home's exterior is exposed to harsh elements all the time. After all, its job is to keep the elements out so that you can enjoy life inside your home. Natural conditions like wind, dirt, sun, UV rays, birds, bugs, and insects - not to mention things like smoke, acid rain, and car exhaust - are constantly beating on your home. With time, your home becomes discolored, soiled, and even damaged.
If you own a home in Isle of Palms, pressure washing is the most efficient and effective way to keep your home's exterior clean while safeguarding your time, family, and investment.
A few of the most common benefits of pressure washing include:
Pressure Washing Prevents Damage
When moisture builds up in the summer and winter months, it can cause serious damage to your home's surfaces. Should you let grime or stains remain on your exterior surfaces for a long time, it can result in permanent damage. Contaminants like mold actually feed off of your paint and other finishes, essentially removing these accents from your home. Throw in hard-to-reach areas like cracks and crevices that are notorious for mildew growth, and there's a lot of potential damage waiting.
Fortunately, a professional pressure washer in Isle of Palms, SC, can remove dirt, grime, mold, and other contaminants that can cause damage over time. This protects your investment and helps keep your family healthy.
Pressure Washing Primes Surfaces for Painting
If you have plans to resurface, refinish, or repaint exterior portions of your home, pressure cleaning is a great way to prep your work area. By removing all grime and dirt from your work surface, you can be sure that you're working on a smooth, clean area free of grit. Pressure wash first if you're planning on other projects like re-staining your deck or refinishing your in-ground pool. Doing so will help your outdoor surfaces hold their new finish easier.
Pressure Washing Protects Your Family
According to the ACAAI, some of the most common allergic triggers are mold, dust mites, pollen, and mildew. These contaminants can be harmful to your health. Having your home and its surfaces pressure washed at least once a year can be very beneficial for your family's health. This is especially true for people who are sensitive to allergens and mold. By removing contaminants and allergens from your home's surfaces, you can help prevent your family from getting sick. One of the best times to consider pressure washing your home is in springtime, when allergens are present. Our eco-friendly pressure washing solution will help remove and kill fungus, algae, mold, and even bacteria.
Commercial Pressure Washing in Isle of Palms, SC
If you own a business with a storefront, you know how important first impressions can be. When customers walk up to your store and see it covered in mold, mildew, dirt, and grime, they may have second thoughts about buying your products.

Benefits of Commercial Pressure Washing in Isle of Palms, SC
When your commercial property takes a beating from the weather in Chucktown, the best way to achieve a clean, new look is with professional pressure washing. Our team uses high-pressure washing solutions for areas like parking lots, sidewalks, masonry, and concrete. We then use low-pressure washing techniques on your siding, windows, and other areas that need a gentler touch.
Additional benefits of commercial pressure washing include:
Commercial Pressure Washing Means Fewer Repairs
With time, dirt and grime will build up on your commercial structure's sides and roof. When you pressure wash regularly, you can prevent rot from taking hold in areas where fences, sidewalks, gutters, and other hard surfaces are common. In fact, our cleaning solutions can help prevent serious structural damage caused by mold, mildew, algae, and other contaminants.
Commercial Pressure Washing Helps Curb Appeal
If you are a business owner with a storefront, you have probably spent hours of time and thousands of dollars updating your facade. But when you don't take proper care of your businesses' exterior, all that time and money go to waste. Doing so gives customers a great first impression before they walk into your store. Additionally, you will almost certainly get higher offers on your store if it has been pressure washed and cleaned prior to listing it for sale.
Commercial Pressure Washing Creates a Healthier Environment
Pressure washing makes any commercial building cleaner, making it a healthier environment for customers and employees. Customers just feel better and more at ease when they shop in a store that is well cared for. They are also more likely to spend more time in your business and become repeat customers. Not only will customers enjoy the benefits of a cleaner building, but so will your employees. They'll be healthier, happier, and won't have to worry about health concerns from mold, mildew, and fungus. Happy, healthy employees mean more satisfied customers, which ultimately benefits your bottom line.

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCIV) — As Hurricane Nicole makes its way to the Lowcountry, officials along the coast are concerned about possible beach erosion.
In September, Hurricane Ian left its mark on the Isle of Palms.
“Lot of debris, for sure. Beach erosion was not so bad with Ian, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed for Nicole coming up. But a lot of debris, trees down, flooding in our hotspots," says Philip Pounds, the mayor of Isle of Palms.
In preparation for Nicole, IOP's Public Safety team surveyed the beaches.
“Our public safety folks did some drone footage earlier this week just to kind of have a base line for a pre-storm view, and then they’ll do a post probably Saturday when the storm clears out just to see if we have any erosion," continued Mayor Pounds.
The direction of the storm is also causing some concern.
“Didn’t have any issues with Ian. This one, again, since we’re on the other side of the storm, there’s certainly heightened concerns. But hopefully by the time it gets here, we’re talking 30 to 40 mile per hour winds mostly and storm surge of a couple of feet. Hopefully that won’t do too much, but we’ll probably have some issues," said Mayor Pounds.
Nicole is expected to bring heavy winds, rain, and possible isolated tornadoes, which is why Mayor Pounds is assuring the public he's preparing for the worst.
"We’ve pulled off all the trash cans that sit out on the beach for beachgoers. We’ll have some public safety personnel this week," Mayor Pounds says.
His main message is to be cautious.
“As we saw with Ian, the past changes pretty regularly and a few miles makes a big difference. This one seems pretty certain as far as the cone as where it’s going so, but certainly for residents just stay plugged in wherever you get your news from," said Mayor Pounds.
We also checked in with Sullivan's Island town officials. They say they will continue to keep an eye on the beaches, but no emergency evacuation order has been issued.
Isle of Palms council discussing limiting development in Wild Dunes

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCSC) - The City of Isle of Palms is holding the first of two public hearings to discuss limiting future development and protecting the golf courses in the Wild Dunes planned development district on Tuesday.
The discussion stemmed from a 1975 agreement that would make it possible for there to be over 300 more rooms built in the Wild Dunes between hotels and condos.
According to Mayor Phillip Pounds, it all started back in February when a group of residents asked the council to take a look at the decades-old agreement to see if they could make some changes. Anthony Santiago says he was one of those residents.
“We thought we were developed already after The Sweetgrass Inn,” Santiago said. “We don’t even have parking for that. And then through the due diligence we discovered the capacity to expand this more than double.”
Santiago and others who are against future development in Wild Dunes say that more development would overwhelm public safety and public works resources, cause more drainage and sewage issues, and make traffic and parking on the island more of a nightmare.
“Every city municipality has the right to rezone as you develop,” Santiago said. “This is almost fifty years ago when we did this. Nobody thought we’d be as big as we are.”
The Isle of Palms City Council now has five ordinances up for discussion that would preserve public and private facilities and put a cap on density in the planned development district.
Beverly Miller is the executive director of the Barrier Island Preservation Alliance, a nonprofit formed to address challenges unique to the barrier islands. She said she wanted to show support for the ordinances through a petition. It now has over 750 signatures.
“When that was written, this island was erratically different, and it’s so different now that we need to amend those zoning ordinances so that we are up to today and the demands that are on the island today that were not here in 1975,” Miller said.
Pounds said the Wild Dunes agreement was one of the first of its type in the country.
“Unusual maybe, but as areas get built out there’s certainly an opportunity for cities to revisit the zoning and the density and the future development,” Pounds said.
Pounds said the city has received many phone calls and emails from concerned residents worried how much the island could take. He says there’s confusion about the slow process, but he says with the public hearing, that will stop development even though they aren’t completely through the process.
“When you’re on an island where you have such little landmass to develop anything, the ability to put 300 plus units in Wild Dunes today, I don’t even know where they would put them because there’s not that kind of landmass,” Pounds said. “But some of the concern was, could they do something on the golf courses, could they do something on the tennis courts. That’s some of the ordinance that we’re looking at during this process is protecting those areas.”
Tuesday’s public hearing will take place at Isle of Palms city hall at 5 p.m. Another public hearing will take place Nov. 1 at 5 p.m. at the city’s recreation center. The city’s planning commission will take a look at the ordinances and give feedback to city council. Then, it will be up to city council to schedule a second reading which would solidify the ordinances.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- In addition to electing candidates to federal, state, and local offices, Lowcountry voters got to weigh in on a number of countywide and municipal referendums on Tuesday.
By a narrow margin, voters in the Town of Mount Pleasant agreed to pay higher property taxes in order to raise $50 million for various parks and recreation projects.
Voters approved the measure by a margin of 51 percent to 49 percent.
According to officials, taxpayers will now pay approximately $80 per year or $6.67 per month on a home appraised at a value of $500,000 for a period of 15 years.
It was a victory for town council members who encouraged votes in favor of the referendum, but a blow to Mayor Will Hayne who called the tax increase “irresponsible.”
The referendum will fund the newly proposed Rifle Range Park, renovate the Park West indoor pool, and add $1.7 million in new paths for the Mount Pleasant Way, among other projects.
There was a trio of referendums on the ballot in Berkeley County on Tuesday, all of which were overwhelmingly approved.
Voters approved two separate 1% sales tax referendums to fund road and school projects in one of the state’s fastest-growing counties.
The first question asked if Berkeley County residents would agree to fund $587 million across seven years of various transportation-related projects and facilities. That measure was approved by a roughly 48-point margin, with 74% of voters saying ‘yes.’ The second question asked voters to approve the issuing of $89 million in County Obligation Bonds from the special sales and use tax fund to fund the completion of infrastructure projects, which was also approved by a wide margin.
The one-percent special sales and use tax in Berkeley County was established in 2008 and approved in a separate, but similar referendum in 2014. It will now continue for another seven years.
The other one-percent sales tax increase, approved by a 71 percent to 29 percent vote, will be used to fund school improvement projects.
Dorchester County voters were asked whether they were in favor of continuing the one-percent sales and use tax to fund transportation improvements throughout the county.
The measure was approved by a 59 percent to 41 percent vote on Tuesday.
According to officials, the tax program has had a “significant” impact on Dorchester County roads since 2005, including providing funding for constructing new roadways, widening major thoroughfares, paving hundreds of miles of dirt roads, and financing drainage facilities and mass transit systems, among other projects.
The special sales and use tax will continue for the next 15 years.
They rejected the measure by a 71 percent to 29 percent vote.
Voters on the Isle of Palms were asked on Tuesday whether they would support reducing the size of the city council from eight members to six members.

Some of you may be wondering what is a subtropical storm. In simple terms, it is a hybrid storm that has characteristics of both a tropical storm and an extratropical storm. An extratropical storm is an ordinary low-pressure area that we see typically move from west to east across North America with attached warm and cold fronts. Nicole formed out of a strong tropical wave joining forces with an upper-level low that was spinning east of The Bahamas.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecast indicates a wandering track in the general direction of Florida, then a northward turn toward us.
The NHC forecast track for Nicole, uncertainty cone,and current watches and warnings as of 11 a.m. Monday.
Remember that the track forecast indicates where NHC predicts where storm’s center will go and that the uncertainty cone refers to the range of possible center tracks, and not where actual impacts will occur. Significant effects from Nicole will occur outside of the cone. A full description of the cone is on NHC’s website.
The forecast track will take Nicole over water that is still around 82°F.
The 11 a.m. Monday NHC forecast track superimposed overa plot of sea surface temperatures.Source: NOAA PhOD Observations Viewer.
The forecast calls for Nicole to become a tropical storm by tomorrow evening, then a Category 1 hurricane by Wednesday morning. Interaction with land as it passes over Florida and perhaps Georgia will weaken Nicole as it turns northward, but it is still forecast to be a tropical storm with 50 mph winds when it passes over or near South Carolina on Friday night and early Saturday.
The current forecast track keeps the impacts from the storm mainly over the Coastal Plain, with limited rain and wind risks into the Midlands and Central Savannah River Area. Unless Nicole goes farther west than currently forecast, the parched Upstate will welcome the inch or so of rainfall Nicole will bring.
However, significant impacts will be felt in South Carolina well ahead of Nicole’s passage. Like we saw with Hurricane Ian, a strong high pressure area will be moving into the northeastern part of the country as Nicole approaches Florida. The resulting steep pressure gradient (the change in pressure over a distance) between these two weather features will cause gusty winds as air flows rapidly from high pressure toward low pressure.
These gusty winds will be out of the northeast on Wednesday, then becoming more easterly on Thursday, pushing water ashore along our coastal areas. If this wasn’t enough of a problem, we also have a full moon tomorrow (I incorrectly said a new moon in Friday’s alert … sorry for having my head in the clouds), and high astronomical tides from that will last all week. The onshore flow and high astronomical tides will cause another round of tidal flooding. This becomes a problem with tomorrow’s high tides and flooding will occur with each high tide the rest of this week. There is potential for major coastal flooding on Thursday morning along the Lowcountry coast.
Major tidal flooding is in the forecast for Thursday.
Coastal flooding will also be a concern along the Grand Strand, but the Lowcountry coast tends to be more vulnerable. Another round of coastal flooding appears likely Friday and Friday night as Nicole passes along our coastline and generates a storm surge. If this happens at high tide, major flooding will occur again.
With the current forecast track, the heaviest rain will occur over our Coastal Plain. The storm should be moving fast enough to prevent extreme rainfall totals, but there is potential for 3-6 inches in the Lowcountry and Pee Dee regions. That’s still a lot, so there will be a flash flooding risk. Of course, heavy rainfall at high tide will exacerbate coastal flooding, especially if there’s a storm surge ongoing. However, aside from the soaking that we saw from Ian, it’s been dry across the state for months, and river flooding will not be a big concern.
If Nicole passes along our coast as forecast, the risk for isolated tornadoes will remain confined to our coastal areas. Should Nicole track farther west while passing through South Carolina, the tornado risk will be higher and affect more of the state. A track more to the east will mean little or no tornado risk in the state but might result in more wind and surge along our coast.
It’s still early in the game with Nicole and some adjustments to the forecast are likely to happen. Still, it’s time to batten those hatches again if you live along our coast. Visit hurricane.sc for storm preparation tips. Meetings may keep me from issuing an alert tomorrow, but you can expect regular updates on Nicole Wednesday until the storm passes.
There is another possible developing storm well to the east of Bermuda today. However, it won’t pass anywhere near South Carolina and isn’t a concern for us. It will wander around east of Bermuda for the next day or so, then move away to the northeast.

The South Carolina barrier island just 30 minutes from Charleston may just be the area’s best-kept secret.
Swaths of uninterrupted white-sand beach, the smell of salty spray, warm sun on your skin, and the rustle of palm fronds gently blowing in the wind—these are the sights, sounds, and scents of Isle of Palms. The South Carolina barrier island packs a lot of relaxation and big fun into a vacation destination that's just seven miles long and one mile wide. The island's proximity to Charleston (just 18 miles by car), make it a preferred summer hideout for locals. An abundance of vacation rentals and the iconic Wild Dunes resort have been drawing visitors from across the country since the early 1970s.
With the deep blue Atlantic on one side and marshy creeks of the Intracoastal Waterway on the other, Isle of Palms offers the best of the Lowcountry and the beach in one stunning setting that's begging to be added to your vacation calendar.
Six of Isle of Palms' seven total miles are occupied by public beaches, which means you'll have your pick of the litter when looking for a sandy spot where you can post up for the day—or the week. Once you've staked your claim, all the normal beach activities are yours for the choosing, from splashing around in the surprisingly calm seas to building the ultimate sandcastle or playing a game of beach volleyball. For families, the Isle of Palms County Park, located in the middle of the island's coastline, is ideal. The public beach has lifeguards, outdoor showers, chair and umbrella rentals, restrooms, and even a playground for little ones retreat to once they tire of the sun and surf.
Make the most of a visit to Isle of Palms by scheduling a charter to take you offshore. Get your sea legs at the Isle of Palms Marina, where you can easily rent a boat and spend a day exploring the island's bays and waterways. Fishing charters are plentiful and offer both reef fishing and Gulf Stream fishing. For adventure enthusiasts or wildlife lovers, Barrier Island Eco Tours hosts a range of naturalist-guided tours that take visitors through winding salt marshes, tidal creeks, and the Intracoastal Waterway on the way to uninhabited Capers Island. Animals you might see along the way include loggerhead turtles, bottlenose dolphins, and every shape and size of coastal birds.
Breakfast is noteworthy at Sea Biscuit Café. The tiny beachside shack has been dishing out delicious morning meals since 1968. While they offer all the classics, the daily specials are where the magic happens. Past offerings have included chocolate banana challah French toast, lemon lavender pancakes, and tomato pie.
When you need a mid-day refuel for the whole family, Coconut Joe's is the obvious choice. Located on Isle of Palms' main drag, you won't have to venture far to get fresh seafood and impeccable vibes. The open-air covered deck is the ideal spot for munching on the restaurant's namesake shrimp, while rocking sandy toes and sun-bleached hair. When happy hour hits, venture to the rooftop bar for a frozen cocktail or painkiller. Nothing will put you on island time faster.
By the time you're finally ready to come in from the sun and go out to dinner, Isle of Palms will be waiting with plenty of options. The Boathouse and Acme Lowcountry Kitchen are island staples that have stood the test of time thanks to excellent quality food and good old-fashioned Southern hospitality. For a special night out, try Coda del Pesce, a fine dining restaurant that specializes in Italian with lots of influence (and fresh catch) from the nearby seas.
All trips to Isle of Palms must include at least one visit to The Windjammer at Front Beach. The legendary local music venue is known for its incredible live shows, stellar views of the water, cold drinks, and unbeatable fried pickles.
The obvious choice for places to stay in Isle of Palms is Wild Dunes Resort, a 1,600-acre family-friendly resort that offers everything from rooms and suites at two inns, to private beach condos and home rentals. In addition to a more-than-comfortable stay, the resort also features several resort-style pools, a spa, and two championship golf courses.
If you're hoping for a cozier stay, the newly renovated Palms Oceanfront Hotel consists of 68 modern rooms with gorgeous views of the sparkling Atlantic. There are also plenty of rentals through Airbnb and VRBO for everything from multifamily waterfront homes to one-bedroom condos.
Whether you book for a long weekend or stay for an entire week, the memories and magic of Isle of Palms will stay with you for months and years to come—maybe even until you have a chance to make another trip back!
