Need to Find a Great House Inspector?

Are you looking at buying a home and are wondering if there are potential costly unseen troubles that may be lurking?  You will likely need to hire a reputable house inspector to find them.

There are a wide variety of homes of all ages for sale in the market today. Some houses may have been built 20, 30, 40 years ago. Some may be even older.

Since building codes are progressively changing over the years, it’s possible the house your considering buying may require some upgrades and/or it could have some unseen issues that are going to be brought up to current code.

In order to find those potential unseen issues that may cost you a lot of money to fix, it is very important to order a house inspection by a qualified, trained professional.

An experienced, skilled home inspector will find and document those hidden issues on your behalf before you make the full commitment to purchasing your new home.

With the many home inspection companies in the lower mainland, Fraser valley area, you may ask how do I find a qualified, reputable house inspector in the Greater Vancouver region?

You may search online and find an inspector through websites like HomeStars.com. On HomeStars you can find many companies with reviews shared by real customers.

How We Treat & Kill Roof Moss

In this video, you will see the product activating (foaming) when coming into contact with moss, black mold, and other undesirables growing on your roof.  This is oxygen activating and killing the moss and other undesirables.

Each time it rains, it will slowly and gently reactivate (killing the moss), resulting in a gradual rinse/wash of your roof over the next 3-6 months.

If you are planning a gentle, long-term roof maintenance solution, we recommend having your roof treated every 2 years.

We have tested this on our own roof and find this is the safest, gentlest way to wash a roof the natural way.  Although it can take longer to see results, it is the safer, softer alternative to preserving and extending the life of your roof.

Exterior Building Cleaning Services [VIDEOS]

Exterior Building Cleaning Services

If you live in the Vancouver area of BC, Canada, you know how dirty buildings get over time (especially on the North side).  And as we all know you only get one chance to give a good first impression.  Our homes and businesses always tell a story.  What does our business/home say to the public?

 

Is Your Building Looking Dirty?

 

Due to the rain and overcast green and black algae as well as moss can rapidly grow out of control on many buildings if you don’t have a schedule for having it cleaned regularly every few years.

 

Building Types & Exterior Types

There are many types of buildings we clean in lower mainland, British Columbia.  They can include commercial concrete buildings, townhouse/condo complexes, apartment buildings, and residential homes.

 

There are also many types of building exteriors that we clean in Greater Vancouver, BC.  They can include vinyl, aluminum, and wood siding.  At times even brick, stucco, and concrete exteriors can use a clean.

 

Local businesses may have glass canopies and awnings that accumulate dirt and spores causing them to become black & filthy over the years if left to the elements.  This can potentially cause customers to find cleaner facilities to do business.

 

A dirty exterior really becomes evident when the windows need a good clean.  You may find yourself looking more at the dirt on the glass than the view beyond the dirty glass.  When you find this happening, you know it’s time to have your building washed.

 

Our Cleaning Methods

 

At Langley Window Cleaning our core service is cleaning windows by squeegee and we also offer the latest in window washing technology.  For this method we utilize a carbon fibre water-fed pole and soft-bristle brush system.

 

Here is a brief demonstration of our system in action at Lynn Valley library in North Vancouver:

Cleaning commercial windows as well as high condominium windows using this system becomes very safe since we can safely work with our feet on the ground.  Our lightweight poles can safely reach up to 5-stories vertically and they do a great job because we know how to use them to effectively clean windows.

 

Here is another demonstration of us cleaning 5-story condo windows in Abbotsford:

The added bonus is we can also safely wash vinyl siding up to 50 feet vertically with this system.  The soft brush doesn’t cause any damage to the siding because it gently washes and rinses as we clean.

 

We have been using this system for many years now and we find our customers prefer their siding to be cleaned by brush.  Check out some customer testimonials here.

 

Another bonus is when people hire us to clean their gutters, windows, and siding, we can do this all in one shot with the water fed pole and brush system.  This can save you a lot of money when having it all done at the same time rather than hiring multiple companies to come do separate services at different times.

 

Our goal is to be your one stop shop for cleaning building exteriors.  Whether it’s a commercial or residential application you can feel safe and reassured knowing your building is in good hands by fully insured professionals.

 

If you would like to receive a free quote for any of our services, please fill out a quote request today.

Thank you for visiting our website.  We look forward to being of service in the near future.

 

Sincerely,

Hidden Gutter Cleaning Langley

Stages of Gutter Vacuuming
Stages of Gutter Vacuuming

Stages of Gutter Vacuuming

1. Pull debris toward you with a plastic gutter scoop

2.  Vacuum debris up out of gutter

3. Repeat

Seems pretty easy to clean gutters huh?  Well it is not.  It’s a lot of hard, awkward work since you will have to use a ladder to reach your gutters.

We always recommend hiring a professional who has many years experience with working on ladders.  Ladder work is not for the faint of heart.  You can injure yourself if you were to fall, so please be extremely cautious and take your time if you plan on cleaning your own gutters.

Of course, you can always request a free estimate here if you wish to hire us.  We offer more than just gutter cleaning as you can see on our home page.

We serve communities of Fraser Valley, BC:

  • Cloverdale
  • Township of Langley
  • Fort Langley
  • City of Langley
  • Aldergrove
  • Abbotsford

Roof Moss: Treatment and Removal

Roof Moss RemovalNew for 2014!

We now feature roof moss treatment and removal at LangleyWindowCleaning.com.  Removing moss from a roof is extremely hard work, yet the results can be nothing short of amazing after you see the difference.

You can see how to remove moss from a roof in this video I made on location in 2014 in Langley, BC, Canada.

We Live in a Rain Forest

If you live in Greater Vancouver area, you know how much it rains here and what a favorable environment we have for moss growth; especially on the north side of a roof!

We are always working on improving our removal process so as to do no harm to your roof.  In fact, having it removed properly can extend the life of your roof.

Depending on your location, your house may be a little more prone to moss growth, especially if you have trees nearby.  It’s best to not let it get too out of hand, so we recommend having your roof treated once a year to keep things under control.

In really extreme cases, we can also gently clean roofs as shown in the above video.  We can access most gentle pitched roofs.  We will not climb on steep pitch roofs.  We will utilize fall arrest harnesses and safety lines where necessary for our safety.

If you have problems with moss growth on the roof of your house, and you would rather not risk climbing up and tackling it yourself, you can always fill in a quote request to get a free estimate delivered to your inbox.

By having moss removed from your roof, you may save the thousands of dollars it would cost to have your roof replaced.  You can save money by allowing us to clean the moss of your roof.  Why not give us a call today?
