SERVICE AREAS

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

Unlike some pressure washers in Goose Creek, 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:

Benefits of Residential Pressure Washing in Goose Creek, 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 Goose Creek, 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:

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 Goose Creek, 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.

Commercial Pressure Washing in Goose Creek, 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?

At Palmetto Pressure Clean Goose Creek, we work with business owners across Goose Creek who know the value of a professionally cleaned storefront.

Benefits of Commercial Pressure Washing in Goose Creek, 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:

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.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Hiring issues aren’t only affecting employers and workers. The problem is affecting the people they provide services to.

Almost not having enough bodies to get the job done is what first responders said they are dealing with.

The Goose Creek Fire Department is one of many in the Lowcountry not fully staffed. As of February 2022, 19 people work in the department, but 13 positions are open and waiting to be filled.

“Those things you don’t necessarily want to see on the news, our people are going to those calls and responding and taking care of those hundreds of calls, thousands of calls all along the Lowcountry,” said Mike Nixon, fire chief for the city of Goose Creek Fire Department.

The Professional Firefighters Association of South Carolina said hiring for public safety jobs has always been hard but especially during the pandemic.

“Because of shortages in the fire service and COVID, they’re being mandated to work an additional 24 or an additional 48 hours. So, they could be in the fire house for three straight days, and it could be longer in some places,” said Bill Pesature, Vice President of The Professional Firefighters Association of South Carolina.

Chief Nixon said he knows that his crew is feeling the effects of being short-staffed.

“When we can’t fill seats, we have to have our people that normally work there normal work week pick up more hours,” said Nixon.

The association said with not enough time to recuperate on days off, it’s taking a toll on people in the field.

“The amount of traumatic injuries and traumatic events that you would see in your lifetime is probably three. The amount of traumatic events that a fire fighter sees every year is three,” said Pesature.

According to the association, mental health counseling or therapy isn’t covered under workers compensation for firefighters and EMTs.

“They have to either not get paid or use vacation or use sick time,” said Pesature. “It’s an injury that you got at work, why aren’t they covering this to take care of people at work?”

Goose Creek Fire crews respond to calls in both Berkely and Charleston Counties. Chief Nixon said the spike in population in those areas play a huge factor.

“We love to see that business is booming. We love to see the neighborhoods blossom, but it taxes our service sometimes before we are even ready for it,” Nixon said.

Out of the nearly 8,200 calls Goose Creek crews respond to, about 70% are for medical purposes, which is why they Nixon said hiring paramedics and EMTs is so important.

“We’re looking to build a great team here, and we want great people that want to do great things. If you’re one of them, please look us up.”

GOOSE CREEK - In one season, the Cane Bay High boys basketball program has gone from worst to first in Region 7-AAAAA.

After Friday night’s 48-40 win at Goose Creek, the Cobras clinched at least a share of the region championship and can secure the title outright with a win in their final game of the season against Berkeley next Wednesday.

Cane Bay won just one game last season, ending a winless season on the final day of the COVID-shortened season. But coach Shawn McKeen, who was promoted to the varsity position after five seasons on the junior varsity level, has guided the Cobras to a 19-6 overall record and a No. 7 statewide ranking in Class AAAAA.

Cane Bay swept the two-game season series with Goose Creek, which entered the season as the favorite to win the region. Goose Creek and Wando will play for second place on Tuesday night,

“These kids are unbelievable,” McKeen said. “I’m just here to point them in the right direction. They go out and play. They play so hard and they have been so determined all season. They knew in their hearts this was possible and tonight they would not be denied.”

Senior point guard Rob McLeod paced the Cobras with 14 points and Christian Smith added 12. Elijah Dates paced Goose Creek with 15 points while Justin Britt scored 14 for the Gators.

Cane Bay led from start to finish, opening a 16-5 lead after one quarter. The Gators (15-7) trimmed the margin to four late in the second quarter but the Cobras held a 24-18 at the break.

Cane Bay was very sharp early in the third and claimed a 37-28 lead after three quarters. The Gators mounted a late comeback in the final quarter, closing to within four at 42-38 with 2:23 left in the game. But the Cobras hit five of six free throw in the final minute to seal the victory.

“We win with defense and tonight we were very good,” McKeen said. “We always feel like we can score enough to win games if we play defense. Goose Creek is such a talented team. We knew this would be tough but our kids never flinched. I’m really proud of them.”

Cane Bay has secured a first-round home playoff game, a first in school history. The program sets a new school record for wins with every victory.

Goose Creek to work on disaster preparedness improvements following COG presentation

GOOSE CREEK — City officials are adding disaster-preparedness considerations to their efforts to manage and map out issues of growth.

During a special City Council meeting on Feb. 22, Kathryn Basha and her planning team with the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments highlighted some of the notable disasters the city could face.

According to Basha, the South and Southeastern region of the United States have the highest national frequency of billion-dollar disasters. In Goose Creek, she broke down the area’s disaster risk into three categories: high, moderate, low and minimal.

Flooding, hurricanes and earthquakes were the city’s highest risk type. Around 25 percent of the city is in a Federal Emergency Management Agency flood zone.

About 11 percent of the city is affected by rising sea levels. More than 8 million square feet of development in the city is also close to wetlands.

“That puts a lot of structures at risk,” Basha said.

Basha and her team also emphasized the high earthquake risk in the city because Goose Creek neighbors a fault line in the Summerville area. Berkeley County is listed as being in extreme risk of seismic hazard, Basha said.

Many of the city’s newer residents often aren’t familiar with the earthquake risk and the need to have earthquake insurance when purchasing a home.

Basha recommended the city require special construction features like rubber bearings for buildings prone to earthquake damage.

Hazardous material releases, dam failure and tornadoes and hailstorms fell into the city’s moderate risk level. At the low and minimal level, the risk types include wildfires, winter storms and drought.

But the risk type receiving the most attention is flooding.

Last June, many residents were clearing out water damage after a severe downpour and flood. The National Weather Service estimated roughly 5-6 inches of rain during the weekend of June 5.

City officials referred to it as a “worst-case scenario” in terms of the amount of rain last summer.

To enhance community resiliency around flooding, the COG group recommended the city push solutions like land conservation practices in developments and prohibiting development in the Special Flood Hazard Area.

Basha also recommended the city build requirements around what they refer to as “green infrastructure.” These are projects like rain gardens, green roofs and permeable pavement that reduce flooding in flood-prone areas.

Ultimately many of COG’s suggestions are centered around updating building and development requirements.

Brian Cook, Goose Creek’s assistant city administrator, said the next move is to take the recommendations and workshop them with the city’s planning staff.

City staff said they expect to present a community resilience ordinance to City Council between the end of March and early April.

Summerville beats Goose Creek, loses to Sumter in playoffs

Summerville opened the Class AAAAA boys basketball playoffs Feb. 16 with a 53-45 win over Goose Creek.“Goose Creek is a quality opponent,” Summerville coach David Long said. “I was a little surprised they were a three seed but I told our guys if we are going to do anything in the playoffs it might as well start with a tough one in the first round. They beat us earlier this season in our own gym and we were able to turn it around so this is a big win for us.”Summerville took an eight-point lead into the h...

Summerville opened the Class AAAAA boys basketball playoffs Feb. 16 with a 53-45 win over Goose Creek.

“Goose Creek is a quality opponent,” Summerville coach David Long said. “I was a little surprised they were a three seed but I told our guys if we are going to do anything in the playoffs it might as well start with a tough one in the first round. They beat us earlier this season in our own gym and we were able to turn it around so this is a big win for us.”

Summerville took an eight-point lead into the half, but the Goose Creek shooters warmed up and started hitting 3-pointers in the second half. The Green Wave had another surge to build the lead to 10 points late in the third quarter, but the Gators again came charging back.

Goose Creek cut the lead to two points with about 2:30 remaining. Summerville then began looking to get the ball inside the paint, which paid off with a bucket and free throws from Jai’viaun Chisolm, Yannick Smith and Melvin Teal that iced the game.

“Goose Creek started making some deep 3s,” Long said. “They got hot so we made a change to try to make sure we were staying out wide on their shooters to take some of those shots away. Freshman Melvin Teal had a big game not only scoring but also handling the ball and rebounding.

“After him our scoring was balanced. They obviously planned to take Yannick out of the game by denying him the basketball so others stepped up. Jai Chisolm, Yasir Smith and Colby Bowermaster all played great so our bench was a big help tonight.”

Teal finished with a game-high 18 points. Chisolm added nine points for the Green Wave and Yannick Smith added eight. Michael Jenkins, Elijah Horton, Delvin Davis Jr., Yasir Smith and Bowermaster also scored for Summerville.

Justin Britt led Goose Creek with 16 points. Shane Potts added 13 points for the Gators while Elijah Dates added 12.

Goose Creek, the No. 3 seed from Region 7-AAAAA, fell to 16-9. Summerville, the No. 2 seed from Region 8-AAAAA, advanced to face Sumter on the road Feb. 18 and was eliminated with a 39-36 loss to the Gamecocks. Sumter improved to 24-4 while Summerville dropped to 14-9.

“To my guy’s credit they hung around and fought back from a 10-0 deficit to start the game,” Long said. “We took a one-point lead midway through the final quarter, but shooting really let us down. Surprising since we have been shooting the ball well recently and we were 9-of-11 from the free throw line. The Sumter defense was a factor in our shooting but we were just off a bit.”

Summerville was only 26 percent from the field. Yannick Smith led the Wave scorers with 14 points.

The future does look bright for Summerville as it stands to return the majority of its starters. The team will graduate four seniors – Caleb Kinard, Hayden Albo, Horton and Bowermaster.

“I’m really proud of what we accomplished this season, especially with such a young team,” Long said. “We will keep working in the offseason and try to come back better next season.”
