Residential Pressure Washing in
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 Cottageville, we use a specially-crafted cleaning solution and time-tested techniques to remove hazardous contaminants safely and effectively.
Unlike some pressure washers in Cottageville, 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 Cottageville, 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 Cottageville, 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 Cottageville, 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 Cottageville, 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?

Benefits of Commercial Pressure Washing in Cottageville, 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.

COTTAGEVILLE, SC (WCIV) — A lot of confusion and unanswered questions stemmed from Tuesday night's public hearing on gun ordinances in the town of Cottageville.
Mayor Tim Grimsley said he called the emergency meeting because of possible gun ordinance changes that he said were causing confusion in the town.
The mayor said the meeting was held to address rumors he felt were causing confusion in the town. Even though that was the goal of the night, many people left with concerns about the wording of their gun laws.
There was only standing room by the start of the meeting at Cottageville Town Hall. The Mayor said the town could change the language of the current ordinance.
“Pellet rifles, slingshots, or other devices — we changed the word other device to other firearms. Somehow that got misconstrued,” said Grimsley.
He said this word change would only clarify the current laws that are in place.
“It got all turned around that we are trying to infringe on people’s Second Amendment rights,” said Grimsley.
Grimsley explained that there is no need for an open carry on town property, including the park next door.
“We are not trying to limit or take anything away. We just want you to be safe and use commons sense. Unfortunately, common sense is out of the window nowadays.”
However, some people in the crowd don’t think a word swap will do the job. Gerald Grenier said he owns a gun for protection and wants better protection from town leaders.
“It’s not that I am against what they are trying to do. It’s just that they need to incorporate the laws that exist to do it,” said Grenier.
John Dodson said he isn’t a gun owner but still wants more transparency from officials.
“I think it’s a step forward to something else. Or else they wouldn’t change it in the first place,” said Dodson.
It’s a change some believe could be the difference between life or death.
“When you are dead it’s too late. People can smile and say well at least you weren’t carrying a firearm. But you’re dead. You are dead because you couldn’t defend yourself,” said Grenier.
The Mayor clarified that the potential changes would only apply to the town's property such as town hall, not everywhere in town limits.
Grimsley wasn’t able to give a timeline on when any changes to the ordinance could happen. Grimsley explained that he doesn’t expect any changes to be made.
The emergency meeting comes on the heels of the last Cottageville Town Meeting where the proposed ordinance was announced.

Representatives in the S.C. House Ways and Means Committee have approved an approximate $14 billion spending plan that would include pay raises for teachers and law enforcement officers.
If approved, the plan includes about $230 million that would increase the base teacher pay for South Carolina teachers by $4,000 per teacher.
Additionally, the pending state spending plan includes $150 million to help poorer school districts build new schools and an additional $100 million to help rural school districts replace old textbooks and classroom materials.
Included in the pending state budget is also $2.6 million that would go into teachers’ pockets to help them pay for classroom supplies. This $2.6 million would increase teachers’ reimbursement for school supplies from $275 to $300 for the school year.
If approved, increasing teacher salaries could surely help the local school district, which has multiple teacher vacancies. The Colleton County School District has had a teacher and staff shortage for several years. (See current teacher vacancies below).
Locally, a teacher coming into the Colleton County School District with no experience and who has a bachelor’s degree has a starting base salary of approximately $36,868. This increases to about $41,768 a year for teachers who have a masters degree and no experience.
The teacher base pay in Colleton County increases with years of experience and with the degrees and certifications that a person has.
For example, a teacher with five years of experience and who has a Master’s Degree would start at about $44,649 per year.
Currently, the Colleton County School District has multiple teacher vacancies.
These vacancies include:
Bells Elementary School: 1 teacher plus media specialist
Black Street Early Childhood Education Center: 2 special education teachers
Colleton County High School: 7 teachers plus media specialist
Colleton County Middle School: 8 teachers
Cottageville Elementary School: 1 teacher and 1 art teacher

It’s hard to believe that anything good could come from the pandemic, but for one couple, something good did come out of it - a thriving business.Florida natives April and Aaron Williamson moved to Summerville, SC after they married 16 years ago. Finding the town “drastically changing,” they moved to Cottageville near the Edisto River. The family visited it the same day they saw the ad and bought it just weeks later.Aaron is a SC Dual Licensed Optician, but has a background in financial services. He also worked in sales, served as a regional sales trainer, recruiter and was eventually vice president of Branch Development. Now, he writes children’s books. April is vice president of marketing for Cornerstone Advisory Group in Summerville, but she has a background in web design, writing and business consultation. In their professional lives, they have worked for fortune 100 businesses with big problems to solve, as well as small, upstart family-owned businesses. Those experiences taught them the value of effective communication, solid branding and creativity.“After years of sharing our experience with our employers, we decided it was time to go directly to our customers with our talent, to make ourselves more accessible, more effective and to allow us to work together as a husband-and-wife team to grow our business,” said Aaron.Aaron and April decided to go into business for themselves and meet the needs of Colleton County businesses, as well as online business that need help to expand and have a better online presence.For new businesses, timing is everything.Ironically, the Williamsons found themselves opening the doors of Blue Collar Marketing, only to find the pandemic spreading out of control across the nation before they could even cut the ribbon. Worried that this might affect their business goals, the Williamsons pushed harder and focused on creating close relationships with customers and helping them develop new ways to generate revenue and become more competitive.Because so many employers and employees were working from home during the pandemic, the computer became a vital tool for everyone. Employers were eager to find other ways to do business rather than owning a storefront.This desire for finding alternative business plans drove many customers to Aaron and April who readily assisted them in finding new pathways to market themselves.Surprisingly, the Williamsons found themselves flooded with work, even during Covid.During the pandemic, Blue Collar Marketing has now added three remote designers and two writers who assist with larger projects.“Frankly, we aren’t interested in growing Blue Collar to the point where we can’t put eyes on everything that goes out the door,” Aaron said. “What we enjoy the most is meeting new business owners, learning their industry, and figuring out how to place them to be competitive. Helping owners either grow their businesses or bring them to life is the fun part,” he added.The Williamsons were eventually able to meet their next-door neighbors in Cottageville and found to their amazement that the property owners were needing assistance marketing their new project… an alpaca farm.Aaron and April worked with Herd it Here Farm on Sullivans Ferry Rd. in Cottageville to prepare for their grand opening. That project included creating a website, marketing materials and consultations. Then, they showed the owners how to take charge of the project and continue the marketing strategy themselves.“Once we learn your business and what makes you different, we plug you into our protocols and execute what we’ve designed. We also teach our customers as much as we can about what we do, so they can be more confident in marketing for themselves instead of being locked into a never-ending contract,” said Aaron.The Williamsons say they have a simple goal for Blue Collar Marketing. “We want to make the path to a solution as easy and affordable as possible and ensure that businesses move on with tools and confidence to keep going and growing. “We want to leave them more profitable and optimistic than when we met,” said Aaron.“I think a lot of people don’t know there is a specialty marketing company right here in their backyard. We want to help businesses grow while remaining a small, family owned, and local business right here in Colleton County.”

Chelsea Smith Reeves is reaching her goal of having it all. She and her husband, Hunter, have been married for just over a year. They lived in Summerville for a while, but decided to move to Cottageville to be near family. With the birth of their little girl, Cumberland Mae, Reeves chose to be a stay-at-home mom. Knowing that she had a love of cooking and baking, Reeves decided to start a bakery business, Little Cottage Bakery. “I have been cooking and baking since I was a little girl,” said Reeves. “Our family is full of amazing cooks, and I have so many wonderful memories growing up being in the kitchen with my mom, aunts and grandmas. I’ve always loved the idea of growing up, having my own home where I can host parties and do all of the catering. I love how so many wonderful memories are created around the table,” she said. Those memories are still going on as Reeve’s mom, Cindy, is her part-time partner in the business. “I decided to start this business to give me the opportunity to stay home and raise our little girl while showing her she can do anything she puts her mind to if she works hard and stays dedicated,” said Reeves. Those values are important to her since she was raised on those same principles. With her talent for cooking and baking, combined with her strong work ethic, business has spread by word of mouth and Facebook throughout Cottageville and neighboring communities.
Business is so good that she is fully booked through Thanksgiving. “Business has been great! We have received so much support from our community. Right now, our business is in home; however, we are strongly considering expanding,” said Reeves. Her future plans are to continue to expand and grow and work her way to a retail location to benefit her customers. According to Reeves, her specials are her famous chocolate chip cookies and homemade-from-scratch cakes and pies. “We bake cookies, cakes, pies, cupcakes, quiche, loaf cakes, muffins, cheesecakes and have more in the works at Little Cottage Bakery,” said Reeves. “We use family southern recipes for all of our products and use as many farm fresh ingredients as possible.” Reeves is proud of the success of Little Cottage Bakery and the rapport she has with her community and family. “My entire family is an inspiration and full of so many incredible people,” said Reeves. “My faith in God inspires me to use the gifts and talents I’ve been given and serve others. And my husband and little girl are the lights of my life and make me want to be better each day for them.” Reeves wants her customers to know that she is taking orders for Christmas and will be rolling out some specialty items. Some of these are decorative Christmas jars filled with cookie ingredients. People can order through Facebook or call 843-789-0266.

The ACE Basin Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol, which meets weekly in Cottageville at the Methodist Church, celebrated its year end awards night and the accomplishments of its members. During this Tuesday meeting, Cadet 1st Lieutenant Nathan Mercer accepted the position of Cadet Commander during a time-honored Change of Command Ceremony.
C/1st Lt Nathan Mercer succeeds his older brother, Cadet Major Payton Mercer, as the Cadet Commander of the squadron. C/Maj Payton Mercer has served as the Cadet Commander—the first ever for ACE Basin—since April 2019. During this time period the squadron earned three consecutive Quality Cadet Unit Awards—the first time ever to earn this national award. The squadron continued to earn the Aerospace Excellence Award yearly. C/Maj Payton Mercer, who holds a pilot’s certificate and is now a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University worldwide, will move to Huntsville, Ala., in January to begin working at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. He credits the leadership and aerospace lessons he has experienced in Civil Air Patrol since age 12 with helping him reach the goals he’s been dreaming about for years.
The ACE Basin Composite Squadron has seen a decline in the number of active members who are participating on a regular basis due to two years of COVID-19 stops and starts. However, the squadron’s mission, in keeping with Civil Air Patrol’s outreach, is to reach the adults and youth of the Walterboro, Cottageville, and Summerville communities with lessons about leadership, aviation, aerospace, and military life. No members are required to have previously served in the military and no cadets are obligated to perform military service after their membership in Civil Air Patrol.
Members often get to perform unique missions in times of disaster, which locally has included performing Foreign Object Debris (FOD) walks at the Lowcountry Regional Airport following the 2020 Walterboro Tornado and performing site security at the location of the 2021 Colleton County plane crash. Anyone interested in learning more can visit the squadron’s Facebook page (@ACEBasinCAP) or its website at www.gocivilairpatrol.com.
The Civil Air Patrol is the longtime auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force and as such is a valued member of its Total Force. In its auxiliary role, CAP operates a fleet of 560 single-engine aircraft and more than 2,000 small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS). It performs about 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and is credited by the AFRCC with saving an average of 82 lives annually.
