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

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD)- A handful of businesses in The Bend at Carolina Park are open with locals responding well to one in particular.
“It was incredibility busy our first week. We’ve seen wonderful numbers. Literally our first week we had lines out the door,” said Webb Cheshire, the owner of The Front Porch Coffeehouse and Creamery.
Neighbors are thankful for the new shopping center which features several local businesses.
“It’s been wonderful to have things close by. We had Costco first. We’ve had the hospital here. We did get different amenities like the CVS Pharmacy down there. But we’ve not had individual small businesses,” said Tina Kaiser, who has lived in Carolina Park since 2017.
“I think it’s much needed. My wife and I came down here a year ago to see where we wanted to live. We love Mount Pleasant,” said Chad Anderson, who moved his family to Carolina Park in 2021.
The development comes as more homes are built along Faison Road in Carolina Park. Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie says that the town’s job is to zone and promote the area.
“The free market will decide which things go where, what is needed and what the demand is for that area,” said Haynie.
Haynie says that a business that is good for the town provides jobs, a needed good or service and better livability for neighbors. Another consideration for the town is how to balance growth and environmental impact.
“Town Council doesn’t sit there and decide winners and losers. If somebody has the zoning to build something they go ahead and build it,” said Haynie. “As you saw with the vote about where hotels should go that’s how we make sure that the feel and the livability of Mount Pleasant stays where it is.”
The positive of new businesses that has neighbors talking is not having to drive down Highway 17 to find local options to shop and dine.
“I think we’re able to find more things closer to Carolina Park,” said Kaiser.
“I think all these stores like The Front Porch in this plaza is much needed in this area,” said Anderson. “I definitely appreciate the small business.”
Long-standing Mt. Pleasant business facing major pandemic-related problems

MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – After 42 years on Coleman Boulevard, Chris’ Dry Cleaning is working through its most challenging years yet. Problems starting early on in the pandemic have become progressively worse as the supply chain clog grows daily and labor shortages wage on.
“It’s been a very different situation that we’ve never faced before,” said Chris Keil, the owner of Chris’ Dry Cleaning.
Fully staffed, the business would have 25 employees, but right now they’re operating with 12.
“There’s more pressure in the workplace for the people to perform. They want to perform but it’s like them having to do more in a period of time than what they had to do before.”
Keil says he’s been trying for months to hire more workers, but, according to him, nine times out of 10, potential employees don’t show up to a scheduled interview or, once hired, don’t show up for their new job.
“I don’t know where everybody is,” he said.
In 2022, employment ads have been running since the first of the year until now, but no one has responded.
On top of the labor shortage, materials needed to successfully run the shop are skyrocketing in price or are barely available at all.
“Prices have increased as much as 75%. In some cases doubled. Product is short…especially hangers. It’s impacted turning our product which is money to pay the bills.”
The problems going on behind the scenes have started affecting customers.
“Our turnaround time is stretched to a week now instead of same day or next day,” said Keil. “Normally we operate Monday through Friday from seven until six and Saturday from nine until five. We’ve been closed on Saturday for two years because there’s not enough staff.”
In order to keep up with the workload, Keil has started working 12 hour days on the floor alongside his employees, something he hasn’t had to do for years. Additionally, on holidays and Sunday afternoons after church, you’ll find Keil tackling the workload. But while he’s hanging jackets, folding blankets, sweeping the shop floor, and doing whatever else needs to be done, he’s thinking about his loyal customer base and is thankful for the support they’ve given him for over four decades.
“After being on Coleman Boulevard for 42 years, I’m able to survive this. If I was new, five to ten years old, I probably would not be here,” said Keil.
Residents raise concerns over Mount Pleasant Way Project

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — There is a proposal for a multi-use path through several Mount Pleasant neighborhoods.
But, some settlement community members say they do not want the path going through their community.
"We are just not willing to give up any more land, whether it's a bike path or for a safety matter," said Louis Jefferson, a 7 Mile community resident.
Jefferson has lived in the 7 Mile community his whole life. He said the proposed bike and pedestrian trail would cut through his neighborhood, taking valuable land from his friends.
"We have some folks in the 6 Mile community that practically live on Rifle Range Road," said Jefferson." Just to take eight to 10 feet away will put this in their yard or at their front door."
George Freeman has family in the 6 Mile community. He worries that the trails will attract more people.
"One of the things I can see coming from this is tourists will start coming into Mount Pleasant and riding this path into the community," said Freeman.
He worries more people could mean more traffic.
"We still have heavy traffic going through 6 Mile," said Freeman. "Now they want to bring in bicycle and pedestrians through the community, so it will be a double whammy."
Some residents in the Snowden community feel the same. They believe the trail would bring unwanted attention.
"We are a private community. We own our land here. We are cognizant of who comes in and out and we want to live in peace," said Merrielee Waters, a Snowden resident.
Waters said she does not see the benefit of adding a trail that would directly impact her neighbors. Plus, she feels ignored by town officials.
"I feel deaf ears. But when they want something, they speak it like it's a good idea when we never had a seat at the table. We don't like this idea," Waters said.
Mount Pleasant has not voted on the proposed trail. ABC News 4 will continue to bring you updates.
Artificial intelligence used for first time in SC for colon cancer screenings

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month, and now, there's new artificial intelligence changing the way the cancer is treated. Its effectiveness is being seen for the first time right here in the Lowcountry.
ABC News 4 got an exclusive, in-depth look inside the operating room of Dr. Marguerita Murphy, who used this technology during a colonoscopy to help identify possible developments of colon cancer that may be missed by the human eye.
The AI technology is called GI Genius. The software uses an algorithm to identify possible lesions in a person’s colon by highlighting them with a green square on one of three screens from a 4k camera.
Murphy says without it, the miss rate on these lesions are 50 percent, but GI Genius cuts that rate in half. If these lesions are overlooked, which is common by just looking at them from the human eye, they have the possibility of being pre-cancerous tumors or could turn into a spot where colon cancer is developed.
Murphy says this technology was able to identify 30 percent more tumors than the regular endogram. She says her passion for her patients pushed her to invest in this technology.
“My patients have always been the most important thing for me is, this is what I do. This is what I love to do. This but to live for,” Murphy said, “The possibility that we could prevent them from having those cancers where we could just do this corner, squeeze, and we can just remove those polyps, so they never have to go through the difficult road that colon cancer is with surgery.”
ABC News 4's Sean Mahoney spoke with Murphy while she was using this technology during a colonoscopy for the first time. She joked, saying, “It hasn't taken over my job yet” – key word, "yet."
She also added that "AI doesn't get tired or distracted.” Those are reasons why the technology would be so helpful.
But in a more serious tone, she believes this technology can help save lives and solve major medical issues here in The Palmetto State.
Currently, colorectal cancer is the second highest cause of cancer related deaths in the country, according to the CDC.
Roughly 52,000 people die a year from colorectal cancer.
Murphy hopes that this new technology will open the doors for artificial intelligence to be used in other medical fields to help curb statistics we see in diseases like colorectal cancer.
“I think we're very blessed in the Charleston area and we just need to aim at expanding that incredible care that we have here into the rest of the state where we may be falling behind,” Murphy said. “That’s what the artificial intelligence is going to come in and revolutionize how we treat patients, how we diagnose everyday patients. And it's going to be amazing. I mean, I’m so excited about the future, and it's not even the future. Here it is. Today, artificial intelligence is here and is here to stay and it’s gonna just help us improve the way we take care of patients every day.”
This technology was first approved by the FDA in April of 2021, but Murphy’s office in mount Pleasant is the first to use this technology in the South Carolina.
Murphy says she can see it being used in other Lowcountry hospitals and medical practices in the near future.

Get ready for posts featuring gourmet cookies to flood your social media feed.
Crumbl Cookies, a fast-growing bakery sensation, is holding its grand opening today and Saturday in North Huntingdon. Owner Tammy Ornowski isn’t sure what to expect as far as turnout goes but said the news has been quickly spreading on Facebook.
General manager Correy Fossick of Penn Borough, a Norwin graduate, said would-be customers for the past several weeks have been driving by and pulling into the parking lot in Huntingdon Marketplace at 714 Mills Drive in the Walmart plaza off Route 30.
“It just seems like everyone is very excited,” he said.
Today’s grand opening will be Crumbl’s first location in the Pittsburgh region. Ornowski, who owns the store along with her husband, Mark, learned about the Utah-based brand after visiting a Columbus, Ohio, location a year ago. Crumbl is the fastest-growing gourmet cookie delivery and takeout company in the United States, according to Business Wire.
Concerns about potential difficulties in hiring enough staff turned out to be unwarranted, she said. The store employs 70 people and has more applicants on file.
“That’s been great, everyone wants to work here,” she said.
Despite being part of a franchise, Ornowski said it’s more like a “mom and pop” store because the couple lives in North Huntingdon. Crumbl has a staple cookie that is always available — milk chocolate — and four or five other specialty flavors that rotate on a weekly basis. All are packaged in a pink box and can be ordered for delivery, takeout or curbside pickup. Other flavors for the week include hazelnut sea salt, blueberry muffin and snickerdoodle.
The business has grown a cultlike following on social media, with people posting weekly reviews to TikTok and other platforms. Trinity Garbacz of Penn Township stopped by Thursday during the soft opening after learning about it from a friend who works there. She’s been following the buzz around Crumbl on social media and is thrilled one finally made it to the area.
“I got literally everything,” she said, opening one of two boxes to show off the cookies.
She said she planned to share them virtually with her Instagram followers.
Other locations around the region are in the works with separate ownership groups. There are more than 370 locations nationwide.
The North Huntingdon store will be open 8 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday for the grand opening and regularly. Weekday hours will be 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
