    "JP and Mike did an EXCELLENT job. They were punctual, polite, thorough, neat, and accomodating. If we were unhappy with anything, they sought to make us happy. In addition to doing the work we requested, they found additional problems, told us what they were, and then corrected those problems after we asked them to. We would be very happy to have them come back to do additional work in the future, when necessary."

  • Does Your Deck Need To Be Cleaned?

    After snow, ice, debris and other odds and ends falling on your deck, you most likely need to give it a good cleaning. Using a pressure washer is your best bet to get the deck spick and span. You're going to need one very crucial tool to do this, and that is a pressure washer. Reilly Painting your Cleveland Contractors and Home Mechanics handle all areas of exterior cleaning, and specialize in pressure washing...especially those dirty decks. Take a minute and read-up on the importance of cleaning your deck, and be sure to give us a call to come out and clean your decks, siding and patio!

    Routine cleaning will expand the life of your deck. After the winter, there is the possibility trapped dirt and debris have taken hold between the gaps on the decking. Spring time means lots of blooming flowers, fruits, and leaves. Nature is bustling, and frankly, it doesn’t care if it gets your deck messy or not. This is where you come in. Keeping your deck clear of any foreign debris is crucial. When organic elements sit on you deck, it becomes a breeding ground for mold and mildew. The mold and mildew can wreak havoc on your decking by slipping into any crevice it can find. These trapped elements can make it easier for any material to decay. It’s crucial to keep your deck clean as you possibly can.

    Since changes to your deck’s appearance happen slowly, it’s difficult to notice when it’s time to clean or refinish. Creating a calendar can help you keep track of scheduled maintenance. Not only does routine deck cleaning save your deck from becoming a snack for your uninvited guests, but it keeps your deck looking fresh, all with just a few sweeps of a broom.
