Residential Pressure Washing in
Seabrook 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 Seabrook Island, we use a specially-crafted cleaning solution and time-tested techniques to remove hazardous contaminants safely and effectively.
Unlike some pressure washers in Seabrook 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 Seabrook 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 Seabrook 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 Seabrook 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 Seabrook 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 Seabrook Island, we work with business owners across Seabrook Island who know the value of a professionally cleaned storefront.

Benefits of Commercial Pressure Washing in Seabrook 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.

By Theresa Stratford for The Island Connection
Under the existing contract, the franchise agreement fee is set at 3%, but Seabrook Island can go up to 5%. Berkeley Electric reached out to Seabrook earlier this year about adopting a new franchise agreement.
Town staff began that process and came up with the ordinance presented at the Dec. 13 Seabrook Island Town Council meeting for first reading. Berkeley Electric is the only electric company that services in the town limits of Seabrook Island.
Dominion Energy services some of the areas in the periphery of Johns Island. Since the state’s Public Service Commission has approved the service area maps, Berkeley Electric wanted municipalities to update their franchise agreements to reflect what has been adopted at the state level. Seabrook Island will need an agreement with Dominion Energy as well, even though Dominion Energy doesn’t service the Town of Seabrook Island. Town Administrator Joe Cronin said that he thinks the reason they need the agreement with Dominion Energy is so that both Berkeley Electric and Dominion Energy agree on the service area set by the S.C. Public Service Commission.
Cronin said that the franchise agreement in the new ordinance is pretty much a “boiler plate” with “no significant changes from what we have had for decades with Berkeley Electric.”
The minor revisions that Cronin and Town staff did recommended were:
• Should the Town install electric charging stations, Seabrook would have the ability to have a credit card swipe in order for users to recharge their vehicles.
• The Town will go up to 5% for their franchise agreement payment by Berkeley Electric.
Cronin also explained that the Town will start collecting the 5% fee in January 2023, but they wouldn’t receive the revenue until 2024 because it will be based on what was collected in 2023. The check in 2023 will be based on what was collected in 2022, which was at 3%. Cronin reiterated that this agreement is “nonexclusive” meaning that it is not limited to Berkeley Electric, however Dominion Energy would have to discuss adding infrastructure with Berkeley if they were to offer electric on the island as well. “By adopting that map, Dominion (Energy) is saying ‘we recognize it isn’t worth our time, money and effort to go into this area because we wouldn’t get the return on it,’” Cronin said. “If Dominion (Energy) were to offer electricity here, that would be something they would both have to agree to with the Town’s franchise agreements.”
This agreement with Berkeley Electric pertains to Seabrook Island town limits only and what is in the public right of ways. Everything inside the gate is private. SIPOA owns the property and therefore they pay for the private electric service inside the gates. In other words, Seabrook Island Town is not involved in the electric service inside the gates – they only deal with the service in town limits. Berkeley Electric owns the electric infrastructure built on the island.
The next step will be for the ordinance to go for second reading and then a public hearing after the first of the year.
Seabrook Island neighbors push for short-term rental cap, mayor says no cap needed
SEABROOK ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - Seabrook Island neighbors are petitioning their leaders to cap the number of short-term rentals, stating there is overcrowding due to what they called over-tourism, but the mayor said the town has no plans to do so.Seabrook Island homeowner Ted Flerlage says over 700 of his neighbors want to cap the number of short-term rentals on the island.“What we’re trying to do is cap, not end the process of short-term rentals, cap at roughly the present numbers, evaluate what happens after that,&...
SEABROOK ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - Seabrook Island neighbors are petitioning their leaders to cap the number of short-term rentals, stating there is overcrowding due to what they called over-tourism, but the mayor said the town has no plans to do so.
Seabrook Island homeowner Ted Flerlage says over 700 of his neighbors want to cap the number of short-term rentals on the island.
“What we’re trying to do is cap, not end the process of short-term rentals, cap at roughly the present numbers, evaluate what happens after that,” Flerlage said, “and then, determine whether or not we should lower the number of short-term rentals.”
As of June 19, there are 484 of these properties on the island, which residents said has led to overcrowding on the island’s streets and amenities.
Mayor John Gregg said for this year, data gathered over the past few months suggest otherwise.
“We’re not going to be looking at imposing limitations on the number of short-term rental units,” Gregg said.
Coastal Getaways owner Nancy Buck said more people are starting to call the island home, and good rentals are full for around 40% of the year.
She says all of her clients are property owners who rent to help offset the costs of the amenities, taxes and insurance.
“We’ve also gone from 35% permanent residents to 60% residents in the last two years,” Buck said. “Twenty-five percent of the properties have turned over since 2019.”
Buck also adds the majority of the amenities are mostly used by members and not rental guests.
However, the homeowners want the town’s government to hear them out.
“I’d like him to reconsider,” Flerlage said. “I’d like him to look at the reality and listen to the people who are property owners here, the residents on the island. You know, 700 people is a big number.”
“Let’s wait and see how this year goes,” Buck said. “They instituted the short-term rental ordinance couple of years ago, or actually, last year, so let’s give it a full year to see how it goes.”
Both Buck and the homeowners said they want to work out their differences over the next several months to come up with a solution that works for everyone.

Editorial: Walking away from I-526 extension is no easy task, but it must be done
THE EDITORIAL STAFFhttps://www.postandcourier.com/opinion/editorials/editorial-walking-away-from-i-526-extension-is-no-easy-task-but-it-must-be/article_3ebba9ea-7d6e-11ed-8045-2fae096d5b88.html

Charleston County Council’s Finance Committee had the common sense last week to defer action on the state’s request to allot $75 million of county money to continue design and engineering work on a plan to extend Interstate 526 from West Ashley to James Island.
With the project’s price tag ballooning to about $2.2 billion this year, far beyond the county’s current means, spending $75 million to continue such work — with no plan on how the project would be paid for — would have been, in the words of Councilman Dickie Schweers, “the most fiscally irresponsible action I have ever witnessed” in his 16 years on council.
We are hopeful Thursday’s decision, or lack of a decision, marks a turning point in the nearly two-decade saga of whether this project will be built.
Such a turning point is overdue. It has been clear since May that the county no longer has the ability to pay for this project, as required under its current deal with the state, but County Council has been hesitant to accept that reality. Instead, it sought a new cost estimate, which took six months and reduced the projected price from $2.35 billion to $2.2 billion, essentially changing nothing. The county’s $1.78 billion share of the revised cost estimate is still about five times its annual budget.
Meanwhile, the county continues to slow-walk smaller, more affordable projects that would improve traffic flow on and off Johns Island, particularly at its two biggest chokepoints.
As a new council meets for the first time next month, we hope it dispenses with any notion of placing Interstate 526 before voters, which would only waste more time. Instead, council should begin working to unravel the project and use the committed money to speed up work on assorted projects that we know will go a long way toward helping to relieve congestion on Johns Island. Vince Graham, a former chairman of the state Transportation Infrastructure Bank, sent council members a message last week urging them to do that, noting that fresh negotiations between the county, the bank and the S.C. Department of Transportation could bolster the county’s finances, in part by selling the right-of-way properties acquired for the project.
Wetland mitigation credits purchased for the 526 extension also could be used for other projects; ideally, the dissolution of the 526 project also would lead the county to walk away from an expensive and ill-conceived mitigation bank deal it made on Wadmalaw Island and allow it to proceed with a plan to build new access roads parallel to Maybank, one on the north and another on the south, to connect to River Road. It’s a sensible scheme that has taken an agonizing amount of time to get designed and built. A deal also could recognize that Charleston County already spent more than $100 million as a local match toward the 526 extension (back when its total price tag was $420 million). County and state officials should agree on finding an alternative project in Charleston County that the Infrastructure Bank could finance in coming years instead.
Some of the newly freed up money could go toward traffic improvements on and around Johns Island that we believe have been delayed partly in a futile attempt to maintain public support for the 526 extension. These include projects already in the works, such as the so-called “flyover” at U.S. Highway 17 and Main Road that will prevent southbound traffic on Highway 17 from having to wait at a traffic light to access Main Road toward Johns Island. On Johns Island, the flow of traffic along Main Road could be greatly helped by a few relatively minor and inexpensive improvements to certain intersections.
Other than U.S. 17 and Main Road, Johns Island’s other great chokepoint is the intersection of Maybank Highway and River Road. Again, this can and should be improved for only a tiny fraction of the cost of extending 526. Instead of widening Maybank to four lanes, a move that would claim several of the iconic live oaks marking the island’s front door, residents and environmentalists agreed to a pitchfork instead — a plan to build two new access roads parallel to Maybank from near the Stono River to River Road. The county finally awarded a $4.3 million contract to construct the northern pitchfork tine last month, but progress on the southern tine remains in limbo — despite a donation of the necessary right of way by a key landowner along the route. This inaction must cease.
There are important, doable steps County Council can and should take to reduce congestion for motorists heading to Johns, Wadmalaw, Kiawah and Seabrook islands, steps that have been partly shelved as the county pursued its overly ambitious and unworkable solution with Interstate 526. It’s time to turn the page.

You’ve already been charmed by Charleston, maybe even made the trip to some of South Carolina’s best small towns like Bluffton, Georgetown? and Mount Pleasant. But there’s a lot more awesomeness waiting to be discovered in the Palmetto State…or, shall we say, just off the coast. South Carolina has some really incredible islands that are perfect for vacation, whether you’re intrigued by pirate lore, love exploring salt marshes, fancy a birdwatching holiday or just need a stress-free escape where wild horses run free.
One of South Carolina’s most popular tourist destinations for a plethora of reasons, Hilton Head Island offers an incredible mix of natural wonder, upscale delights and outdoor activities. You can book whale watching and dolphin spotting boat charters, hit the links, go cycling, hiking and kayaking, play tennis and polo, do some shopping, snap pics in front of the red-and-white-striped Harbour Town Lighthouse and, of course, catch some rays on the beach.
No doubt you’ve heard of Hilton Head Island and Savannah in the neighboring state of Georgia. Sitting just off the coast between these well-known vacation destinations is a tiny hidden gem called Daufuskie Island with a population of just 500 residents. There aren’t hotels or big-name attractions. Instead, it's a place of peace, quiet and magical natural wonders—bottlenose dolphins bob in the waters and loggerhead turtles nest on the shore.
In terms of true vacation destinations, Kiawah Island is a hole-in-one. It has a huge gated luxury beach and golf resort with loads of swish accommodation and amenities like world-class fairways. You don’t need to be a guest to explore the island, which is open to the public. Daytrippers from Charleston often drive over to enjoy the sandy beaches, hiking and biking trails, tours at Heron Park Nature Center and Marsh Island Park.
4. CAPERS ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA
A pretty, undeveloped barrier island oasis, Capers Island is the perfect spot for a family vacation. Beaches, maritime uplands and salt marshes provide the perfect backdrop for outdoor adventure. It’s excellent for birdwatching and wildlife peeping. Be sure to bring your camera to the eye-catching “boneyard beach” where old tree stumps dot the sandy expanse. Bonus: accessibility from Charleston means no long travel days with the kiddos.
5. DEVEAUX BANK, SOUTH CAROLINA
By now you’ve likely gathered that birding is a big deal in South Carolina. Deveaux Bank, a horseshoe-shaped spit of sand at the mouth of the North Edisto River estuary, takes it to the next level as the island actually encompasses a 215-acre sanctuary that’s a protected nesting habitat for many sea and shorebirds. If you’re keen to see eastern brown pelicans and black skimmers, hightail it over to Deveaux Bank.
Seabrook Island is a downright dreamy place to live or visit. A lot of people choose to reside in this private, oceanfront community. That’s because it’s pretty as a picture with natural beauty galore, nationally recognized birdwatching, two award-winning golf courses, near-empty beaches, a racquet club, an equestrian center and stunning houses we’d happily call home. And the fact that it’s just a few miles from downtown Charleston yet retains a sense of seclusion definitely helps, too.
A nature lover’s dream, Bear Island feels rugged and remote despite sitting just an hour outside Charleston. This undeveloped and pristinely beautiful 12,021-acre Sea Island is part of the ACE Basin estuarine reserve area and managed by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. That translates to ample opportunities for bird watching (it’s among the top-ranked spots for twitchers in the entire state) and wildlife viewing, fishing, hiking and biking.
For a fantastic family-friendly holiday, consider Edisto Island. A laid-back Lowcountry Sea Island not far from Charleston (some people even call it home and commute into the Holy City, just to give you a sense of proximity) that’s approximately 68 square miles and has loads of low-key appeal in the form of sandy beaches and outdoor activities for all ages, including hiking and camping in Edisto Beach State Park.
Fripp Island doesn’t scream "Shiver me timbers" in that really obvious sort of way. But its treasure hunting past is really interesting and the legends live on. Though, these days, the most seaward of the barrier islands feels a lot less pirate and more residential vacation resort with sandy beaches, tennis courts and golf courses. It’s also a designated wildlife sanctuary. Visitors and residents frequently see great blue herons, wood storks and dolphins.
If you’ve spent some time in South Carolina or are generally familiar with the Palmetto State, Beaufort probably rings a bell. Port Royal Island is the island where the aforementioned seaside city resides. There are beautiful beaches, scenic walking trails, boat tours and tons of opportunities for birdwatching. It's also a popular pick for foodies, specifically seafood lovers who come from far and wide to sample fresh-caught Lowcountry fare.
11. CALLAWASSIE ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA
Callawassie Island may be one of the hundreds of barrier and sea islands, but this 880-acre private slice of paradise just 17 miles from Beaufort sets itself apart from the rest with its coastline, tidal creeks, lagoons, salt marshes and moss-draped trees. There’s also a butterfly garden and a golf course. Callawassie Island is accessible via the half-mile-long causeway that connects it to the mainland as well as by boat.
Sure, bigger isn’t always better. But, then again, sometimes size ups the appeals of a place. Sprawling 738 acres, Johns Island, the largest island in South Carolina and famously a filming location for The Notebook is enchantingly beautiful with miles of wooded trails, farms and lakes. Back to the whole size thing…its most famous feature, the massive ancient Angel Oak stands a whopping 65-feet tall and shades an area of 17,000 square feet.
