West Ashley is one of the best places to live in the United States.

Residential Pressure Washing in
West Ashley, 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 West Ashley, we use a specially-crafted cleaning solution and time-tested techniques to remove hazardous contaminants safely and effectively.
Unlike some pressure washers in West Ashley, 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 West Ashley, 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 West Ashley, 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 West Ashley, 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 West Ashley, 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 West Ashley, we work with business owners across West Ashley who know the value of a professionally cleaned storefront. Some just don't have the time to pressure wash their business themselves. Others prefer to rely on our team of professional pressure washers to get the job done right the first time.

Benefits of Commercial Pressure Washing in West Ashley, 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.

Nonprofit collects donations for victims of Palms Apartment fire

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A nonprofit, West Ashley Connects, has partnered with the Citadel Mall and others to provide a space for community members to volunteer and donate items to those affected by the Palms Apartment fire.
Kenneth Marolda with West Ashley Connects says this is their largest project to date.
“It’s the biggest initiative physically, literally, financially and in every sense,” Marolda said.
Food, baby clothes, household supplies and undergarments are just a few of the many items that have been donated by the community.
West Ashley Connects says they were able to get many items from pods full of donations collected by West Ashley Tool Rental, Software Solutions and Designs and the Palms Apartment.
Volunteers have been sorting through and handing out the donations at a storefront inside the Citadel Mall.
“They can fill up a cart; they can come back as many times as they’d like,” Marolda said. “We have food. We’ve been getting donations of primarily nonperishable, and we go through that to sort out expired foods to make sure that whatever we have here is immediately usable for them.”
Not everyone lost their homes due to fire damage. One resident, Earnest Bain, was forced out because of smoke damage and says he is grateful the community has come together to offer their support.
“I appreciate it, and I hope we always stay this way,” Bain said. “A lot of times things happen, and we don’t look out for each other, you know what I mean. But anytime there’s a storm or something comes, we look out for each other then.”
The organization says they will continue to accept volunteers and donations so long as the residents need supplies. They are also looking to help beyond this initiative.
“We are planning the next step for the residents as well as at least some options for them to choose from,” Marolda said. “Whether that’s helping them out with a security deposit, an application fee, or furnishings.”
West Ashley Connects says they have also opened their doors to residents recently affected by the apartment fire in Summerville.
The donation center will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at their storefront in the Citadel Mall.

A new apartment development is in the works for West Ashley.
Whitfield Construction Co. plans to build 296 multifamily units called The Exchange at West Ashley Circle on part of a 45-acre site near Bees Ferry Road and Glenn McConnell Parkway.
The property sits on the northeast corner of West Ashley Circle near Church Creek, where nearby residents have expressed concerns about flooding in recent years.
The proposed development’s site plans show 18.5 acres of high ground after accounting for wetlands preservation and utilities.
The project proposes about 40,000 square feet for restaurant and retail space along Bees Ferry while the apartments would be built just off West Ashley Circle. The acreage closest to Church Creek would be preserved as wetlands.
Four Walgreens pharmacy sites in South Carolina are now under new ownership.
Covestre Capital LLC, a Delaware company, bought the drug store operations in Bamberg, Beaufort, Chapin and Williston for $6.06 million from C3 Investments Inc., according to Jack Owens and Will Sherrod of the commercial real estate firm NAI Charleston, which handled the transaction for the seller.
Eric Wasserman with Acropolis Commercial Advisors LLC represented the buyer.
“The rural markets in the Carolinas and Georgia continue to perform well, and this portfolio sale, at asking price, shows the investment interest from groups outside of the Southeast,” Sherrod said.
On the move
Commercial real estate giant JLL is the latest tenant to announce it is moving into a Charleston office building now under construction.
The global firm’s local outpost will occupy 4,642 square feet on the seventh floor of the nearly 150,000-square-foot Morrison Yard building being built at 850 Morrison Drive at the base of the Ravenel Bridge on the peninsula.
The firm said it needs more space because of its growth in the Charleston market, including the recent addition of lines of business for property management and capital markets.
Chicago-based JLL set up shop in the Charleston market in 2014, when it went by Jones Lang LaSalle.
The 12-story structure, with 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, is set to be completed in July.

A new bishop has been selected for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charleston in a historic appointment by the Vatican.
Pope Francis named the Rev. Jacques E. Fabre as the 14th bishop of the diocese, making Fabre the first Black man to oversee it in its 200-year history. The diocese spans the state of South Carolina.
Fabre, a Haitian immigrant, succeeds Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone, 76, who officially submitted a letter of resignation in 2020.
Standing in the diocese’s West Ashley Assembly Hall before a crowd of several dozen, Fabre expressed humility at the pope’s decision and thanked him for the selection “among better priests” to lead the Charleston diocese.
“If the Mother Church chose me, it’s because of something they see that I’m not able to see,” Fabre said.
Guglielmone welcomed Fabre to South Carolina, calling the bishop-elect “a great gift to the diocese.” Fabre is technically bishop-elect until he officially assumes his role April 29, when he will be ordained and installed as head of the Charleston diocese.
Charleston City Councilman Keith Waring, who is Catholic and is also one of council’s three African American council members, said Fabre’s appointment is a monumental step forward for the diocese, founded in 1820.
It points to progress happening in the Palmetto State, known as the “cradle of Confederacy in the South,” Waring said.
Fabre’s appointment is also significant for Charleston, he said.
“We tout ourselves as being an international city,” Waring said. “Certainly he has an international touch.”
Fabre, 66, was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and immigrated to New York City while still in high school.
He is well versed in five languages: English, Spanish, Italian, French and Haitian Creole. During the Feb. 22 announcement, he displayed his fluency by offering greetings in English, Spanish and Creole.
He spoke about the importance of unity in today’s divisive political climate.
“We are a divided country,” he said. “But we are one humanity.”
Fabre is priest of the religious order the Missionaries of St. Charles and has served as administrator at San Felipe de Jesus Mission in Forest Park, Ga., since 2010.
Also during that time, Fabre has served on various committees for the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
Fabre said the call from Archbishop Christophe Pierre informing Fabre of the appointment took place Feb. 13 just before Mass at his Georgia parish. Fabre would go on to distribute Holy Communion at church, the news still heavy on his mind.
“I just knelt down and said, ‘What am I going to get into,’” he said. “Because of that fear, I began to really trust in the Holy Spirit.”
Guglielmone has served as bishop of Charleston since March 2009 and has overseen the diocese as it has opened schools, outreach centers and new churches.
His tenure has also included tumultuous times. A lawsuit filed in 2019 in New York alleged Guglielmone sexually abused an 8-year-old boy while serving as a pastor in the late 1970s at St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church in Amityville. Guglielmone denied those accusations and said in 2020 the Vatican cleared him of wrongdoing.
Guglielmone will serve as an administer of the diocese until the Fabre’s installation.
“As bishop of Charleston, it has been a pleasure to serve the faithful in South Carolina,” Guglielmone said. “There is so much more to be done, and I’m more than confident that Bishop-elect Fabre will serve our diocese well in the upcoming years.”
The bishop-elect said he intends to build upon the work and ministry that’s already been established in the diocese by Guglielmone.
“I will be building on what I find,” Fabre said.
Fabre has a steep educational background. He attended St. John’s University in New York, St. Michael’s College in Canada, and Chicago Theological Union and Scalabrini House of Theology, both located in Illinois. Fabre received a master’s in Divinity and a licentiate in Human Mobility from the Pontifical Urbaniana College in Rome, and was ordained to the priesthood in Brooklyn in 1986, for the Community of Missionaries of St. Charles.
His ministry has taken him across the globe.
Fabre has served as chaplain to the Haitian refugees at Guantanamo Base, Cuba, and pastor at San Pedro de Macorís parish in the Dominican Republic.
Most of his ministry has centered in rural areas. He said he’s now been called from “the mission church into the cathedral.”
Residents say they did not hear smoke alarms in Monday's apartment fire

WEST ASHLEY, SC — WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCIV) – There are new safety concerns stemming from the massive fire at a Lowcountry apartment complex. Residents at The Palms Apartments said during Monday’s fire, they could not hear smoke alarms going off.
Laurie Hale, a resident at the complex, said she feels lucky to be alive.
“If not for the firemen, we would have all burned,” she said.
Now that the initial shock has faded, she’s frustrated and confused.
“No fire alarms in our building went off,” said Hale.
She wasn’t the only person who said they didn’t hear alarms. ABC News 4 spoke with neighbors who did not want to be identified. They live in other buildings and said the same thing.
“I had three in my apartment,” said Hale. “My neighbor had three in hers, and my downstairs neighbor had three in hers apartment, and none of our alarms went off.”
Earlier this week, our crews learned the buildings at The Palms didn’t have sprinklers because the complex was built before building regulations made sprinklers mandatory.
Hale said she at least expected to hear smoke alarms.
“If not for the firemen who pounded on our door and yelled ‘Get out now there’s a fire’ we’d all be dead,” she said. “That was a horrific fire, and it spread really fast, and it was really hard to stand back and watch it.”
Hale said she’s talked with ATF, police and the fire marshal about what she saw Monday morning. Now, she’s trying to start over.
“I’m trying to get back on my feet, and get back to work, and trying to have a normal life again,” said Hale.
We reached out to the Charleston Fire Department to get more details on whose responsibility it is to maintain smoke alarms. They sent us this statement:
"Smoke alarms are required in residential buildings in the State of South Carolina. The alarm should be installed per manufacturers recommendations and be located in an area where the tenant can hear the audible alarm if it is activated. Section 23-9-155 of the 2013 South Carolina Code of laws and National Fire Protection Association Standard 74, require the owner of the building to supply and install a working smoke alarm. A unit shall not be rented without a functioning smoke alarm at the time of occupancy. The tenant should also sign a statement that smoke alarms were fully functional at the time the lease was signed. The owner is also required to provide documentation on how the test and maintain the smoke alarm. The owner is also not responsible for damages caused if the smoke alarm is tampered with or disabled in any way by the tenant. The tenant is also required to maintain a functional battery in the smoke alarm and if there is electrical power going to the alarm the shall not disconnect the power. The tenant must not remove or relocate any alarms installed by the owner and shall test and maintain the alarms and notify the owner or agent in writing of any deficiencies found."
We reached out to management at The Palms to get details about placement of smoke alarms, or if they had received complaints abut smoke alarms not working. Management said they could not comment or issue any statements regarding the fire
