Residential Pressure Washing in
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 Ladson, we use a specially-crafted cleaning solution and time-tested techniques to remove hazardous contaminants safely and effectively.
Unlike some pressure washers in Ladson, 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 Ladson, 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 Ladson, 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 Ladson, 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 Ladson, 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?

Benefits of Commercial Pressure Washing in Ladson, 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.

Latest News in Ladson, SC
He caught passes from Trevor Lawrence and was in playoffs. But now Miami’s Ladson is ‘home’
Susan Miller Degnanhttps://www.miamiherald.com/sports/college/acc/university-of-miami/article264270886.html
Former Clemson/current University of Miami receiver Frank Ladson will likely be among a rare group of players who by the end of 2022 can say they played for one team, transferred to a program they previously faced, then faced their original team after transferring.“I missed home,’’ said the 6-4, 205-pound Ladson, a fourth-year junior who was rated as high as a five-star prep receiver (PrepStar) and four-star wideout by other major recruiting sites when he played at Homestead South Dade High School. “It was time...
Former Clemson/current University of Miami receiver Frank Ladson will likely be among a rare group of players who by the end of 2022 can say they played for one team, transferred to a program they previously faced, then faced their original team after transferring.
“I missed home,’’ said the 6-4, 205-pound Ladson, a fourth-year junior who was rated as high as a five-star prep receiver (PrepStar) and four-star wideout by other major recruiting sites when he played at Homestead South Dade High School. “It was time to come home.’’
Not only has Ladson caught passes from No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick Trevor Lawrence, he’s now catching passes from projected first-round pick Tyler Van Dyke.
He’s also the second UM transfer receiver in as many years who has competed in the College Football Playoff. Ladson’s Tigers lost to LSU in the Jan. 13, 2020, national championship game following the 2019 season. Though Ladson participated, he didn’t record any stats. After the 2020 season, Ladson’s Tigers lost to Ohio State in a national semifinal. He caught one pass for 9 yards.
Charleston Rambo, who set UM’s single-season school receiving record in 2021 (1,172 yards and seven touchdowns on 79 catches) and is now battling for an NFL spot with the Carolina Panthers, played in the 2019 and 2020 College Football Playoff.
“Some of the guys asked me about it. Like, ‘What’s the biggest game you ever played in? The loudest game you ever played in?’ Ladson said Thursday after the the sixth day of fall camp and first session in full pads. “It’s just a different type of atmosphere. You’re in the playoff [and] you’re playing for a championship. At the end of the game they bring a stage out and confetti falls.”
Ladson, whose Clemson career was marred by consecutive seasons of sports hernia injuries which he said necessitated two surgeries — one on each side — said he’s now healthy, fighting for a starting spot and doing everything he can to become the big-bodied receiver the Hurricanes need.
“I ask Frank questions all the time,’’ said Canes wideout Key’Shawn Smith, another dominant pass-catcher on the outside. “It’s nice to have a big type of receiver like him, because we don’t have that. We got stretch-the-ball or stretch-the-field speed. To have a big receiver like him for the red zone is good to have.’’
Ladson’s transfer marked the third time since 2019 that UM has gotten an elite receiver from the portal. Besides Rambo, the other time was KJ Osborn, now with the Minnesota Vikings, in 2019.
“It’s cool to come home, right?” said ACC Network analyst Eric McClain, a former Clemson offensive lineman who watched practice Thursday. “There’s a bunch of stuff with the transfer portal that I kind of feel bad about, but that’s a good one. There are times when guys just need fresh starts, guys just need to go home.
“I hope and pray he’ll blossom here, because he’s a heck of a player — unbelievable talent.’’
Ladson started four games for Clemson in 2021, tallying four catches for 19 yards before he had to undergo his second surgery. In 2020, Ladson caught 18 passes for 281 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games, four of them starts despite multiple injuries.
“It was kind of like one injury carried over to both years,’’ he said. “It’s great now. It was healed even before I came to Miami [for spring practice]. “ He said it’s been a good experience “learning from a new coach and being around a new group of guys.’’
Ladson was an All-American at South Dade and rated the No. 23 player in USA Today’s “Chosen 25” national high school rankings The 247Sports composite ranking had him as the nation’s No. 7 wideout and 39th best player, regardless of position. He earned his degree in communications at Clemson in three years.
Ladson lauded Miami coach Mario Cristobal and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney. “Great coaches. Both are real big on culture and putting the work in.”
Swinney told the Miami Herald at the ACC media days last month that he was “really proud” of Ladson. “I’m disappointed he wasn’t able to really enjoy the fruits of his labor and talents at Clemson because he was hurt,’’ Swinney said. “But he graduated, a really smart kid. Hopefully he can stay healthy and have the type of year he’s capable of having and wants to have.’’
As for his similarities in Lawrence and Van Dyke, Ladson said they were both students of the game, perfectionists, wanting the best for their teammates and “demanding that from everybody” around them.
He said he appreciated Van Dyke coming into the receivers’ meetings from time to time. “That’s been great. He’s the quarterback. Whatever he wants he gets. It’s like, ‘What you thinking about this route? How do you want me to come out on this?’... Angles, coming out of the route, ball placement, stuff like that.
“I love to get the feedback. The whole room loves it.’’
His goals this season? “Just to win as many games as we can,’’ he said. “Put in the work and everything is going to fall in place.’’

DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Dorchester County Fire Station 21 on Ladson Road is now closed while construction begins on a major remodel.
The $3.3 million project will see the station completely demolished and reoriented so the building faces the road.
Fire Chief Tres Atkinson says the new station is part of the county’s strategy for redeveloping the Oakbrook area. He says the new station will have four bays, office space, living quarters and at least six bunkrooms.
“This is a big deal for this area. I think not so much for the call volume but just the way this area is growing and the way it looks,” Atkinson said. “We really need to make it fit the ticket for the remodel of the Oakbrook area. We really need to make this more aesthetically pleasing, and I think it’s a win for both sides - for the fire service and for the community as well.”
It will also feature a weight room and a dedicated area for turnout gear. This is a decontamination area to purge gear of harmful chemicals picked up during fire calls. Many of those chemicals are carcinogenic, meaning they can cause to cancer.
The project is currently $300,000 over the original budget with construction expected to be completed sometime next year, although a more specific timeline is not yet available. In the meantime, the fire trucks and ambulances have been moved to other areas.
That has some people living in the area concerned.
“The new station will be great in the long run, but I am just concerned that they were not planning their coverage in the meantime,” said Fred K. “There are numerous apartment buildings being constructed within a half mile from here. How are we going to have the same coverage while this construction is going on?”
Atkinson says they moved the fire engines to Station 22, about four miles away. They transferred EMS services to a Summerville fire station one mile away.
“We worked with our automatic aid partners in Summerville and North Charleston,” Atkinson said. “North Charleston has two stations right close by. . . There really won’t be a big impact to the response times.”
Fred’s concern isn’t about distance so much as it is about traffic.
“I’ve seen EMS have to drive over the concrete medians they put down on Dorchester Road. It’s not too easy for them to get down this way in heavy traffic,” Fred said. “The areas they have to go through are some of the most congested traffic in Dorchester County up here on Ladson Road and Dorchester Road. There’s so much more traffic here than there used to be even from just a few years ago. "
Atkinson says they’ve done the math and can guarantee there will not be a noticeable change in response times.
“We’ll be on scene very quickly,” Atkinson said. “It’ll be a big truck, a big red truck and it might say North Charleston or Summerville or Dorchester County on it but we’ll be there in a timely manner.”

LADSON, S.C., Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Hunter Quinn Homes is partnering with Ladson Youth Organization (LYO) to renovate the lavatory facilities at Tom Conley Park in Ladson, SC. The renovation will kick off Monday, September 26th, and conclude Friday, September 30th at 6:00 pm with a celebratory kickball game between Ladson Youth Organization program participants and team Hunter Quinn.
The renovation project is a result of a much-needed upgrade to the existing facilities of Tom Conley field, where LYO, and the surrounding Sangaree community, regularly host games and events. Hunter Quinn Homes' HQ Gives Back initiative will mobilize local contractors and suppliers to donate materials and labor to improve the facility.
"Over the years, the biggest complaint that Tom Conley received is the lack of functioning restroom facilities and how outdated they are," says Tommy Newell, President of LYO. "All of the other parks in the area have municipal financial support where LYO at Tom Conley Field is solely self-financed. We generate money off registrations, donations, and sponsorships, that contribute to the upkeep of the ball fields."
The renovation will be a complete gut and remodel of the existing lavatories. The facilities will receive new plumbing fixtures and partitions, a fresh coat of paint, partial roof replacement, and newly coated floors. The purpose of the renovation is to provide the local community with updated and functional facilities at a much-used community park that has been around for over 50 years. Hunter Quinns' trade partners are donating all materials and labor.
"Our team is passionate about providing excellent experiences building homes for our neighbors here in the Charleston market. Not only do we build homes, but we also build communities. We're fortunate that we can give back and see this as another opportunity to do some real good for the youth in the local community" explained Will Herring, Founder & President of Hunter Quinn Homes.

Staffing woes could be over for Charleston County’s 911 Call Center
LADSON, S.C. (WCBD)- Over 100 people are going through the process to become 911 telecommunicators in Charleston County after a month-long hiring event took place because of a staffing shortage.“We’ve had a lot of questions from the 911 floor about how open interviews have been going so I’m excited to get these numbers to them as well.

LADSON, S.C. (WCBD)- Over 100 people are going through the process to become 911 telecommunicators in Charleston County after a month-long hiring event took place because of a staffing shortage.
“We’ve had a lot of questions from the 911 floor about how open interviews have been going so I’m excited to get these numbers to them as well. Hopefully we can keep all these people and have them be able to fill staff on the floor and help our community and staff as well,” said Kaitlin Jordan, the Public Education Specialist at the Charleston County Consolidated 911 Call Center.
The 47 vacancies in the center that have contributed to short staffing are still open because none of the new hires have completed training, but that will change in the next couple months.
One of the new hires is Jess Gongaware, who is new to Charleston.
“It’s more about the passion and the purpose for me working in support of our first responders on the road and being able to help serve and give back to our community,” said Gongaware.
Once applicants like Gongaware receive their offers they undergo training to learn about geography and CPR certification.
Despite new employees still being in the pipeline, Jordan is optimistic that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
“We definitely have enough people and enough applicants to fill those positions. We just have to get them into the training class,” said Jordan. “We’re moving through the application process way faster than we normally are which is great because we had groups of people coming in to do multiple things at once.”
Charleston County saw a total of 142 applications received last month which is over a 260% increase from last year. 105 of those applications are moving along.
A calling to help law enforcement, emergency medical works and firefighters is what compelled Gongaware to apply.
“Training can be a lot. It’s overwhelming at first. I’m not from here either so as far as geography goes it’s been a little bit tough. I’m excited to be here and happy to see where it goes from here,” said Gongaware.
Telecommunicator Qualifications and Job Details
No prior experience needed. High school diploma or equivalent required.
Training occurs within the department. The training program was recently re-accredited by Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials. (APCO)
Open 8 hour shifts: 5:45am – 2:00pm, 1:45pm – 10:00pm and 9:45pm – 6:00am
Shifts for new employees are issued based on staffing needs.

Groundbreaking Thursday on 'state of the art' mental health facility in Ladson

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) — Officials with Trident Medical Center are officially breaking ground on a new, standalone behavioral hospital!
It will be the first the first freestanding behavioral hospital to open in the Lowcountry in over 30 years.
The nearly 58,790-square-foot facility in Ladson will include a single-story hospital and interior courtyard with space for recreation and therapy. The facility will have “state of the art” inpatient and outpatient services for Lowcountry residents.
The main difference this building will provide in comparison to general hospital care is more of a focus and extended resources for geriatric and adolescent care. The behavioral hospital will continue adult care as well.
The medical director for behavioral health at Trident, Jeffrey Culver, says he starts every day in the emergency room.
Currently, there are only 250 beds for mental health patients in the Lowcountry, and without a dedicated space for them — in most cases — a lot of them must go to the emergency room.
But with the construction of this new facility, Culver hopes it will help provide a safe space for real change and will get more people the help they need.
“I fully expect when this facility opens, that the dialogue both locally and nationally will continue to help chip away at that stigma. I think we're still a long way from where we need to be, where we can talk about mental health and mental illness the same way we talk about things like heart disease and cancer, but we're getting there. And I think being able to open up a brand-new facility and have people see that what we're doing is part of medicine,” Culver said.
ABC News 4's Sean Mahoney spoke with longtime mental health advocate Kelly Troyer, who works with the National Alliance of Mental Illness - Greater Charleston area.
She says the Lowcountry has come a long way in providing mental health services, but that there is still more work to be done and she hopes this will help kickstart that change.
Troyer also says the need for mental health services has drastically increased over the course of the pandemic.
The City of Charleston reported a 78.1 percent increase in the number of suicides from 2020 to 2021.
Troyer also has a personal connection to mental illness, as her son, Alex, was diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age. She says finding resources in the Lowcountry was nearly impossible in the beginning, as she had to go out of state for care.
However, she says the construction of this new facility is a step in the right direction.
“As far as access to service, no, there's not enough in our state, especially in the rural areas. Then also, even here in the Lowcountry, we have great resources and we have people. But look at the Latino community and the African-American community, there's more [of a ] stigma around mental health conditions, so they don't reach out as much to the access that's here,” Troyer said. “So this groundbreaking of this hospital is very good news for us in our community. And we want to celebrate that.”
The hospital is expected to start out with 60 inpatient beds with the ability to expand and also will provide outpatient resources.
Construction started on the $30.4 million facility started in December, but officials with Trident waited until Thursday to hold the ceremony because of the weather.
Work is expected to wrap up in spring of 2023.
The groundbreaking ceremony and celebration is taking place at 11 a.m., at the construction site, which is about two miles from Trident Medical Center and right off highway 17 in Ladson, at 3445 Ingleside Boulevard.
