Thought of the day…In the last 7 days I have cleaned 12 Pool Enclosures and Pool Decks along with a 16 roofs and 9 exteriors and 20 driveways and sidewalks and 1 brick wall. I keep meaning to blog about this though and it has been a reoccuring question of many homeowners who have a dark/bronzed pool enclosure. If you have one or if you are another cleaning contractor who has seen this then you will know what I am talking about.

When the hurricanes hit in 2004 many pool enclosures were destroyed and rebuilt. Many were changed from the white colored enclosures to the dark/bronzed colored beams. Probably thinking it will hide the mildew better and not need cleaning as often and plus they look fancy. But when they are constructed they sometimes get etched or scratched during the shipment and will need touch up painting where the scratches were. In the first 2 years they may not be noticeable but after that the touch up paint fades it turns into a golden brown color. It can be as little as one small spot or it can be in several dozen spots. They are most noticable in places where the beams join together but can be anywhere that was scratched and you will notice it if you have one.

So it is not spots missed from your cleaning contractor and can’t be removed by simple cleaning. It will almost always require touch up painting every few years. So if you are deciding to purchase a new pool enclosure make sure that the builders take good care of the materials during installation and also shipment. Or just go with white, white lasts a lot longer and does not oxidize as fast. It is your preference though.

Also a note on Pool Deck cleaning. If you have a painted or coated deck never let anyone pressure wash it with a high pressure fan tip, make sure that they use a chemical pretreat and rinse lightly with low pressure or a water hose. High pressure will not properly kill the algae and it will also remove or pit the surface and will come back even worse in a short period of time. Plus a note to homeowners. Put all potted plants on rollers or on a stand so that the deck can dry underneath the pots. Clay pots will always stain the deck and the stains can not be removed so be sure to prop them up a inch or so with plastic stands or rollers so you do not get circles on the deck.

Pavers also should not be pressure washed with a high pressure fan tip because it will blow out the joint sand and cause your pavers to become uneven. I use a surface cleaner after prewetting the pavers with water to soften the mildew so that I can quickly go over the pavers without disturbing the joint sand and I rinse lightly at an angle with a ball valve to rinse all debris out the doors and not into the pool.

Choose your cleaning contractor carefully, there are a lot of inexperienced new guys in this – temporarily until the economy recovers and they may not be licensed or insured and can cause more damage than good. See how long they have been in business. Go to google and search www.sunbiz.org and look up by registered name and if they do not appear there than search with ficticious name. If they are not there either they are not legally licensed and definatley not insured and or not registered with the state of Florida. You will see how long they have been operating once found by the annual report, we are formally Jade Cleaning Systems and now Tropical Roof and Exterior Cleaning. Do a little research before you do any prospecting for cleaning contractors, and if they give you a copy of an insurance document do not assume it is real or in good standing call the agent listed on the document and make sure they are still insured and make sure that they are not using anyone elses insurance.

We are insured with Atlantic Casualty and carry a 2 million 1 million policy and our agent is Burchell Insurance in Winter Springs FL. We are registered with the state and we are licensed, plus we are workers comp compliant.
