SERVICE AREAS

Residential Pressure Washing in
West Ashley, 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 West Ashley, we use a specially-crafted cleaning solution and time-tested techniques to remove hazardous contaminants safely and effectively.

Unlike some pressure washers in West Ashley, 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.

Benefits of Residential Pressure Washing in West Ashley, 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 West Ashley, 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 Wash West Ashley, SC

01

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 West Ashley, 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.

02

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.

03

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.

 Best Pressure Washer West Ashley, SC

01

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.

02

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.

03

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.

Contaminated West Ashley pond sees significant improvement

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — A West Ashley pond needing to be cleaned after a nearby restaurant dumped oil into a storm drain is improving significantly, according to City of Charleston leaders.“It was in very bad condition, but it is getting much, much more where we want to see it,” said Matt Fountain, Director of the Stormwater Management Department for the City of Charleston....

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — A West Ashley pond needing to be cleaned after a nearby restaurant dumped oil into a storm drain is improving significantly, according to City of Charleston leaders.

“It was in very bad condition, but it is getting much, much more where we want to see it,” said Matt Fountain, Director of the Stormwater Management Department for the City of Charleston.

On Tuesday, the department met with the contractor hired by Rio Chico Mexican Restaurant for a status update.

“They’ve installed oil absorbent booms to make sure that they are not getting any additional spill that hasn’t been identified or there’s some other issue occurring, [and] replace the absorbing materials necessary,” Fountain said. “So, we’ll continue our inspection, probably on a weekly basis, to make sure all of that is happening.”

While the bulk of the work has already been handled, Fountain said a timeline of when normal conditions will return is a bit murky.

“The idea is to get the concentrations down to a low enough level so they are not causing any harm, and they can be handled by normal biodegradation. You just want the normal processes that would break down oil and the environment to do that,” he said.

The Carolina Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is now a temporary home to turtles and birds covered in thick layers of oil.

On Tuesday, more arrived.

“Ten turtles,” said Keenan Freitas, a staff rehabilitator with the center.

"Apparently, every time we get a transport in, they appear to be more and more oiled.”

Freitas said the facility is now caring for five birds and 45 turtles.

“Ideally, they go back into the pond, but we can’t do that,” he said. “They’re just going to be re-infected or contaminated. So that will be up to the state’s herpetologist where they want to put those turtles.”

When it comes to businesses putting anything in the storm drain that shouldn’t be there, city officials are offering a reminder:

“It’s always cheaper to do maintenance and do things correctly in the first place,” Fountain said. “Then they come back and try to hire a contractor and basically do emergency repair work. That’s a huge financial burden.”

School district executive leaves behind 21 years of experience

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Of the recent high-level departures from the Charleston County School District, none leave with as much experience in the organization as Jennifer Coker.

Her tenure with the district spanned 21 years and saw her in a number of leadership positions climbing the ladder until she rose to become the executive director of the Department of Alternative Programs and Services.

Coker announced her retirement last Thursday and is expected to officially leave her position at the end of the month.

The position came with the challenge of overseeing some of the most difficult students and tasked her with not only educating them but setting them up for success after high school. The most notable schools under her care have notoriously been Liberty Hill Academy and Daniel Jenkins Academy which have seen a bevy of violent incidents towards staff at the hands of students.

To Coker’s credit, the challenges at Daniel Jenkins are nothing she would not put herself through. Coker says she spent five years as the principal of the school, restoring more than100 students back to their home school. While there, she says they completed a “meaningful instructional program for students in the Juvenile Detention Center”.

Before that, she served as the principal of West Ashley Middle School.

“The school’s report card rating went from ‘At Risk’ in 2006 to ‘Average’ in 2009, an improvement of two levels under that system,” Coker said.

As the head of the district’s alternative programs, Coker had her hand in almost all of the programs aimed at helping students and addressing behavior. Coker says some her achievements include implementing a restorative practices framework that is now being implemented in 35 schools and initiating several task forces aimed at addressing issues like bullying.

Most recently and, perhaps most successfully, Coker found herself championing the district’s effort to address the mental health of students. She established a partnership with the Department of Mental Health to increase mental health services by 300% in six years and led the effort to supply calming kits and calming rooms to any school that wants them. She also launched the district’s art therapy program and took on the effort to develop and lead the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund III effort centered on wrap-around services.

Coker also lists securing a Project Prevent Grant among her top achievements. The grant provides $5 million to support seven North Charleston Schools.

“Throughout my tenure, no matter the role, developing leaders and encouraging people to see beyond their current position has been an honor,” Coker said. “Again, there are too many individuals to mention, but I hope they know impacted me far more than I could ever impact them.”

With her retirement, the Department of Alternative Programs and Services is expected to be reorganized. The details on what that means are still being finalized.

Several birds covered in oil from Charleston restaurant admitted to wildlife rehab center

Amy Salim started caring for an oil-covered osprey the moment it was admitted to the Carolina Wildlife Rehabilitation Center on Aug. 11.The bird, found in a West Ashley pond, was rehydrated with IV fluids and received activated charcoal treatments to treat the effects of ingested oil it may have swallowed while preening, or cleaning its feathers with its beak.“He was just absolutely coated in it.

Amy Salim started caring for an oil-covered osprey the moment it was admitted to the Carolina Wildlife Rehabilitation Center on Aug. 11.

The bird, found in a West Ashley pond, was rehydrated with IV fluids and received activated charcoal treatments to treat the effects of ingested oil it may have swallowed while preening, or cleaning its feathers with its beak.

“He was just absolutely coated in it. His feathers were sticking together,” Salim said. “This is possibly the worst case that I’ve ever seen.”

Ospreys are huge eagle-like white birds with black markings on their wings. They are not an endangered species but are protected under the Migratory Species Act.

Ospreys are unique because they feed on live fish and can dive to catch them, which is how Salim said the one under the rehab center’s care likely ended up in the pond. Two green herons were also rescued from the pond and treated at the Carolina Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, a nonprofit with locations in the Charleston, Myrtle Beach and Charlotte areas.

When covered in oil, ospreys and other birds cannot regulate their temperature and eat, among other obvious problems like pain and discomfort.

The oil in the pond next to Ashley Crossing Drive came from West Ashley restaurant Rio Chico, located at 1975 Magwood Drive. Citizens of a nearby neighborhood notified the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control, and the state agency visited the pond with an inspector from the city of Charleston’s Department of Stormwater Management.

On Aug. 12, the city issued Rio Chico with a notice of violation and gave the restaurant one week to remedy the situation.

“I think it’s a valuable thing for the restaurant industry to remember how important proper disposal is,” said Director of Stormwater Management Matthew Fountain, who estimates he receives 10 to 12 calls about “illicit discharge” from restaurants each year. “It’s great when someone does let us know because then we can stop it.”

Rio Chico Manager Victor Castro said a broken kitchen line caused a combination of grease and water to travel from the restaurant through the parking lot to a storm drain that feeds into the pond.

In the 30 or so feet between the restaurant and the storm drain sits a grease trap, where Castro said the restaurant’s excess grease is deposited and picked up once a month.

“Because it was raining a lot the past week, it went really, really fast all the way over there,” said Castro, who has worked at Rio Chico for 18 years, while pointing to the storm drain on Aug. 15. “We have the container right there, so there’s no reason for us to dump oil in the street.”

Rio Chico has hired Moran Environmental Recovery to lead the cleanup efforts, project manager James Outten confirmed. Outten, who first visited the site Aug. 15, was unable to elaborate on what those efforts would entail.

Rio Chico was not fined, and the city of Charleston will reassess the situation on Aug. 19. Whether the oil was intentionally dumped or the result of accidental runoff is not the city’s immediate concern, Fountain said.

“Either way, we’re just saying, ‘Hey, we need to get this stuff out of our waterway,’ ” Fountain said, discussing what he expects from Rio Chico in the next week. “Normally we want to see that there’s been a true, significant good-faith effort.”

Other animals have been found injured in the pond since the osprey and green herons were rescued.

Two anhingas — long-necked, long-tailed birds sometimes called snakebirds — were on their way to the rehab center on Aug. 15, Salim said, and multiple turtles will soon be transported to a local facility. An alligator was also exposed to the oil.

Some animals did not survive the spill, including a hawk and a couple of aquatic birds.

The osprey and green herons remain in stable condition, but they are not out of the woods yet. According to Salim, the birds have gone through multiple washes — a stressful process that can require anesthesia — and will be in the rehab center for weeks.

The recovery of injured and oiled animals is ongoing, Salim said. More than 20 volunteers have assisted in the rescues so far.

“Our concern moving forward is just obviously mitigating the environmental concerns,” Salim said. “It’s a really stressful process for the animals.”

Those wishing to contribute to the care of these animals can donate to the Carolina Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. For more information on how to donate, visit cwrcwildlife.org.

Charleston committee authorizes agreement to move pedestrian bridge forward

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A plan to build a standalone $40 million bicycle and pedestrian bridge across the Ashley River is one step closer to reality, and city leaders say the bridge will be a safer alternative for people to get around.

The City of Charleston’s Traffic and Transportation Committee voted Monday afternoon to authorize Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg to sign an agreement between the city and the South Carolina Department of Transportation. That agreement will go before full city council at Tuesday’s meeting.

“We are going to build, in the City of Charleston, connectivity between West Ashley and downtown that we’ve never had before,” Seekings said, “and it’s going to change the face of this community for the better.”

Seekings said the signed agreement will finalize grant applications for the 20-foot-wide bridge and allows the city to begin designing the structure.

He also said the city will own the bridge under the agreement and will work with DOT on the structure’s long-term maintenance once it’s built.

“In a city where we have mobility challenges, to be able to build a project like this cooperatively with dollars coming in from local to federal and everything in between levels, this is a no-brainer for us. This is something we should have done a long time ago.”

Nicole Farina works in downtown Charleston and drives across the bridge every day.

“It kind of like freaks me out when I see people walking by there, so it would definitely be a lot safer to walk across there,” Farina said. “I’m always really nervous about that. Even people bike down there, too.”

Seekings also said the current versions of the bridges are very dangerous for pedestrians.

“If you had to cross either the north or the south version of the bridges that go there, those are built for cars and cars only,” Seekings said. “There are very narrow walkways that I would not recommend people to use. There is no way to get across that river currently that is safe for bikes and pedestrians, and that’s really too bad.”

The city said they’re looking to finish construction by the end of 2026. They also said the bridge will be able to open in the middle, so larger boats can pass through.

Farina said she is excited for the bridge to be completed and looks forward to using it once complete.

“I love to take walks on my lunch break, but there’s really not too much walking-friendly areas where my office is, so that would be the perfect spot for me to go take a little stroll for like 30 minutes or something.”

New restaurants coming to 3 shuttered dining venues in Charleston

The sites of three shuttered restaurants in Charleston could soon be serving diners again.In West Ashley, a Japanese restaurant that serves sushi, steak and seafood plans to open in a former Chinese diner while two Mexican-themed offerings are in the works for different sites on the peninsula....

The sites of three shuttered restaurants in Charleston could soon be serving diners again.

In West Ashley, a Japanese restaurant that serves sushi, steak and seafood plans to open in a former Chinese diner while two Mexican-themed offerings are in the works for different sites on the peninsula.

Konnichiwa is upfitting a space at 975 Savannah Highway in the Harris Teeter-anchored St. Andrews Center. The site previously was A1 China Super Buffet, which closed in June 2021.

The name Konnichiwa stems from the traditional Japanese greeting from midday to onset of evening, or a standard way to say “hello.”

The restaurant originated in its Charlotte location and has five more sites throughout South Carolina, including Greenville, Florence and Lexington. Two are in Spartanburg County in Moore and Boiling Springs.

Business partner Eka Lesmana said the West Ashley restaurant is aiming for a late October opening.

In downtown Charleston, Azul Meeting St. LLC recently applied for an alcohol license at 385 Meeting St. next to Charleston School of Law. The company is registered to Armando Navarro, who owns Azul Mexicano Restaurante near Park Circle in North Charleston. He could not be reached for comment on the proposed restaurant.

The site is the former location of Sol Southwest Kitchen & Tequila Bar. An opening time frame has not been announced.

And in downtown Charleston, a new Mexican-themed restaurant and tequila bar is in the works.

The Matador, with nine restaurants in the Seattle area as well as Idaho and Oregon, plans to open in the former Sticky Fingers site at 235 Meeting St., according to plans presented to the city of Charleston.

Plans show the front entry door shifted to the left, with a window replacing the existing entry to match current elements. Interior renovations are planned on the first two floors of the three-story building.

The restaurant chain, with its bull-horned logo, offers an array of Mexican dishes such as tacos, enchiladas and burritos and specializes in tequila with more than 150 offerings, all from Mexico. It also offers hand-crafted cocktails and a full menu of other items.

A restaurant representative did not immediately respond for comment on a projected opening timeframe.

Sticky Fingers closed the Meeting Street site in September 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. It had operated downtown for more than two decades. Before that, the space at the southwest corner of Hasell Street housed Marianne, a popular French bistro that closed in 1995.

Lidl update

Work resumed over the past month or so on the inside of the new discount grocery store Lidl coming to North Charleston after interior upfitting had stopped earlier this summer.

The German-based grocer that runs its U.S. headquarters from Arlington, Va., recently posted a “Now Hiring” sign in front of the shop on an outparcel of the Ross Dress for Less-anchored Cedar Grove Shopping Center on Dorchester Road.

The company also recently applied for its state license to sell alcohol at the future store.

Lidl spokeswoman Chandler Spivey said the new North Charleston store is expected to open in the fall while the company hopes to have a better sense of timing at a later date for the store proposed for Bowman Place Shopping Center in Mount Pleasant.

Seeking variance

A new dining venue is in the works for downtown Charleston. Applicant Michael Hebb is requesting a special exception from the city to allow a restaurant at 30 Pinckney St. with 198 square feet of inside patron space without providing two required off-street parking spaces. The Board of Zoning Appeals will consider the request Sept. 6.

On the go

Food Lion supermarket has added five stores in South Carolina to its growing list of locations that offer its “To Go” order online and pickup grocery service.

New locations include stores at Richland Avenue West in Aiken, S.C. Highway 81 North in Anderson, U.S. Highway 321 in Gaston, U.S. Highway 701 North in Loris and Jefferson Davis Highway in Warrenville. The grocer also offers the service at 55 other locations across the Palmetto State.

In the Charleston area, the service is offered at five of Food Lion’s 19 supermarkets. They include locations at Ashley Crossing in West Ashley, College Park Road in Ladson, Maybank Highway on Johns Island, North Street in Summerville and St. James Avenue in Goose Creek.

The service is free on the first pickup and delivery for an order of $35 or more. A pickup fee of $1.99 is charged on subsequent purchases over $35 and $3.99 for orders under $35.

A delivery fee of $3.99 is charged on orders over $35 and higher for orders less than that but at least $10. A delivery service fee of 5 percent of the order also is assessed, and it could be higher during peak times.

Changing hours

Ruke’s roadside fruit and vegetable stand in Mount Pleasant will change its days of operation after Labor Day.

The produce vendor at 378 Mathis Ferry Road will be open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday from Sept. 8 until Dec. 31.

The roadside stand near Holy Trinity AME Church was previously open the same hours Monday through Saturday during the summer season.

Now open

Beach Cowboy Fitness is now open at 1200 Queensborough Blvd. in the Publix-anchored Queensborough Shopping Center in Mount Pleasant.

It offers home-school physical education classes and inclusive and adaptive fitness programs for special needs students.

It’s open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays and 9-11 a.m. Saturday as well as other times by appointment.
