Residential Pressure Washing in
James Island, 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 James Island, we use a specially-crafted cleaning solution and time-tested techniques to remove hazardous contaminants safely and effectively.
Unlike some pressure washers in James Island, 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 James Island, 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 James Island, 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 James Island, 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 James Island, 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. After all, if you can't take the time to make your business presentable for customers, why would you put any effort into the service or product that you're selling?
At Palmetto Pressure Clean James Island, we work with business owners across James Island who know the value of a professionally cleaned storefront.

Benefits of Commercial Pressure Washing in James Island, 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.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — The 33rd Holiday Festival of Lights is back and as bright as ever.
It features over 2 million lights and more than 700 displays.
Guests are invited to drive along a three-mile stretch of colorful blinking bulbs and get out of the car for more holiday experiences.
"There's two areas in the park, Winter Wonderland and Santa's Village, and there's a lot more to see in those areas such as gift shops, Santa will be here in a few weeks. We have marshmallow roasting, food, all kinds of other great things that you have to experience while you're here," said Sarah Reynolds, Public Information Coordinator for Charleston County Parks.
Reynolds says almost 6 million people have come to the event since it opened in 1989.
She says it takes the staff more than an hour to turn on the displays.
"We have some really unique light displays, and you know, some iconic Charleston imagery that are reflected in the light displays here. So it's a really beautiful, really amazing event to drive through," Reynolds said.
Many people say they were ready to get into the holiday spirit. That’s why they attended this season’s debut.
"Every year is something different, and it just always makes people so happy," returning visitor Alexandra Yakobleba said.
Parks and recreation officials say there are more lights this year and you can buy tickets to see the displays from a dragon boat tour.
You get to dry you get to paddle next to like some of the light displays and so it's a really unique opportunity to see those light displays up close," Reynolds said.
Tickets can be bought online in advance or at the gate.
But they’ll be slightly more expensive on busier evenings.
"We have identified peak nights and regular nights at the Festival of Lights. So if you come on a regular night, you're going to be paying a lower admission rate for your vehicle. So we encourage everyone to check out our website, check out the calendar and try to come on a regular night if you can. And we're also offering advance ticket purchases so you don't have to buy your ticket at the gate," Reynolds said.
"Whoever is seeing this, you have got to come out here," Yakobleba said.
If you didn't make it opening night, the festival will be open each night from 5:30 to 10 p.m. through December 31st.
Mayor: 2 illegal stop signs cause confusion, controversy in James Island neighborhood

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - Two fake stop signs have been found in one James Island neighborhood, which the mayor says has caused confusion and controversy between town officials and locals.
A neighbor’s security camera captured the Town of James Island’s public works department removing the illegal stop signs from the corner of Clearview Drive and Tennant Street on Oct. 21.
“You cannot put your own stop signs out. You can always come to the town and make a request, and it will always be merited,” Mayor Bill Woolsey said. “We won’t often be able to put them up, but you can’t put them up yourself, and how we respond is we immediately contact SCDOT. We would have been very surprised if they put a stop sign out there without telling us beforehand.”
A worker could be seen wiggling one of the signs a couple of times before lifting it out of the ground and placing it in the back of a truck.
Not only were the signs put in illegally, according to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, but the ground next to the street was painted with white stop bars, as well.
“It’s the first I’ve ever heard about it, and I hope it doesn’t spread,” Woolsey said. “[I’m surprised] someone would come and paint a line in the road and buy some online stop signs and install them themselves in the middle of the night or early in the morning.”
Deputies said they were patrolling the area the night before and didn’t see any new signs, but when they went back the next day, they said the signs, which were apparently purchased online, had been put in overnight.
The South Carolina Department of Transportation has also confirmed they have not installed any stop signs at the intersection.
Neighbors initially thought the stop signs were put in by DOT to help with speeders and said the fake signs hurts their ability to address the issue.
“I guess somebody duped us, and they were putting in fake stop signs,” neighbor Jim Boyd said. “They looked to all of us legitimate and 100% real. We are just in favor of anything and everything that we can get people to slow down. Yes, we understand first responders need to get here quickly as well, but we want everything and anything.”
However, Woolsey said he believes the signs did not pop up at random.
“If we find out who did it, they will be charged, and we believe that, most likely, it was someone who lives close by,” he said.
Woolsey also said there was a recent incident where an illegal speed bump was found and removed near the intersection. He said the speed bump had black and yellow stripes and was similar to one found in parking lots across the Lowcountry.

Three years ago, James Island had a mediocre football program.
The Trojans finished the season 5-5 and were searching for an identity under first-year head coach Jamar McKoy.
In three short seasons, McKoy, who came to the James Island from Hunter Huss High School in Gastonia, N.C., has built the Trojans into one of the best programs in the Lowcountry.
Liam Nixon threw for 187 yards and Amor Scott scored two touchdowns to lead James Island past York, 32-14, on Nov. 4 before a raucous crowd at The Backyard at James Island Charter School.
The Trojans (10-1) will face Irmo, a 14-7 winner over North Myrtle Beach, at home on Nov. 11 in the second round of the Class AAAA playoffs.
“To win this time of year, you’ve got to play great football and win all three phases of the game,” McKoy said. “I thought we played a complete game in all three phases. Offense was able to move the ball, the defense bent a little bit, but didn’t break and the kicking game connected on some big field goals.
“It takes that kind of effort to win this time of year. We made some plays on both sides of the ball when we needed it the most.”
A week ago, the Trojans won their first region title since 1995. James Island’s playoff win was its first postseason victory since a 56-55 victory against Wren in 2009.
“This is a huge win for us, for the program and for James Island,” said James Island linebacker Walker Woodall, who finished with eight tackles, including a sack and a tackle for loss. “We’ve been working toward this all season, especially the seniors.
“We were 5-5 my first season and to be where we are now is crazy. The players have put in the work, watched a lot of film and now all the hard work is paying off.”
The Trojans hadn’t played many close games during the regular season. Coming into the game, James Island had outscored its first 10 opponents, 402-62.
And while the Trojans jumped out to a 22-0 lead — on two short TD runs by Scott and another by Tykell Maxwell in the first half — the Cougars made things interesting in the second half.
Tristan Barnett came off the bench and threw for 193 yards to get the Cougars back into the game.
“You have to give (York) a lot of credit,” McKoy said. “They used another quarterback and we didn’t expect that. He threw some good balls and they didn’t quit.”
York’s Aiden Davis closed the gap to 22-7 on the first play of the fourth quarter with a 1-yard TD run.
But James Island answered when Gray Dangerfield connected on a 48-yard field goal with 9:13 to play in the game to give the Trojans a 25-7 advantage.
“That was a big field goal for us,” McKoy said. “Gray has a strong leg. We were confident he could make it from there.”
Barnett scored on a 10-yard run to narrow the Trojans’ lead to 25-14 with 7:42 to play.
The Trojans put the game away when Cam’Ron Williams recovered a Barnett fumble in the end zone for the final margin of victory.
“We want to play games in December, that’s the goal,” McKoy said. “Right now, we’re not worried about records of milestones. We want to play for state championships.”

Some Midlands school districts are shutting down in-person classes on Friday as Tropical Storm Nicole threatens South Carolina with severe weather.
The storm is expected to produce heavy rain, gusty winds, flash flooding, and isolated tornadoes in the Midlands beginning Thursday and lasting through Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
Here’s a look at where specific districts stand and any plans that have been released:
All Richland 1 schools and administrative buildings will be closed Friday, which will be an e-learning day for students and a work-from-home day for employees. Additionally, all after-school activities scheduled for Thursday have been canceled.
Richland 2 will switch to an eLearning/remote work day on Friday. This means all school buildings and district facilities will be closed and all after-school activities are canceled. Officials said the switch was made based on the potential for hazardous travel conditions.
All schools in the district, including FIVE, will transition to an eLearning day on Friday. Other events in the district have also been affected, including
? Dutch Fork High School’s playoff game has been postponed until 8 p.m. at Dutch Fork High
? Irmo High School’s playoff football game will take place Saturday at 6pm at James Island Charter High School
? The AAAA Competitive Cheerleading Qualifier at Irmo High School has been postponed until Monday at 6 p.m.
All schools will shift to e-learning on Friday. That means the school buildings and offices will close Friday, with teachers assigning both virtual instruction and/or take-home lessons. Because power outages are possible, students will have five school days to complete all assignments to be counted present.
Additionally, all after-school activities and sports are canceled for Friday.
Out of an abundance of caution, Lexington 2 schools will move to an eLearning day on Friday, and all after-school activities, programs and athletic events that were scheduled for Friday are canceled or will be rescheduled. Thursday afternoon’s after-school programs and activities will continue as scheduled, but the Thursday night activities will be canceled or rescheduled.
Lexington 3 said Friday will be an eLearning day for students and staff members across the district.
In coordination with other Lexington County school districts, Lexington 4 will transition to an e-Learning day for all schools on Friday. All after-school activities and athletics are canceled for Friday.
All after school activities, including athletic events, and field trips are canceled Thursday, and Friday will be an eLearning day for all students. This means schools and office buildings will be closed, and all activities, including athletic events and field trips, are canceled.
All after-school activities scheduled for Thursday are canceled, and students will have an eLearning day on Friday.
Out of an abundance of caution because of the threat of Tropical Storm Nicole, Clarendon County School District will operate on an e-Learning schedule Friday.
School officials said that Friday will be an eLearning day for students.
As a result of potentially hazardous weather conditions, the Fairfield County School District will have an eLearning Day on Friday.
After school officials initially said they were not making changes to the school schedule, they reversed course saying Friday is now an eLearning day. All school buildings and offices will be closed.
Columbia officials canceled the Veterans Day parade after several event entries canceled, in addition to staff assessing weather forecasts for Friday.
This is a developing story, check back to see if there are any additional changes, or if any other area school districts adjust their schedules.
