How Renew Crew of Charlotte is making the competition green with envy
Who cleans your exterior surfaces? Do you have a company you use for scheduled deck and exterior cleaning? Do you clean your surfaces yourself? No matter what your answer is, chances are one of the main ingredients being used in the process is bleach.
The debate about using bleach as a deck cleaner has been ongoing for decades. The truth is, unscrupulous and uneducated cleaning companies will incorrectly use bleach to clean your deck and other outdoor surfaces. This is because bleach is abundant and cheap, which is dangerous not only for the environment but for you and your family!
Bleach is highly poisonous to breathe in and it breaks down decking made of natural wood and composite to the point that it will need to be replaced because it deteriorates the structure’s integrity. In fact, many composite decking manufacturers will void your warranty if bleach is used as a cleaner. It’s so damaging and harmful that it can cause innumerable health problems such as vomiting, injury to your lungs, burns, and excruciating headaches. And it doesn’t only affect humans—it also affects your pets and plant materials within your landscape, too.
Bleach damages your landscape and turf grasses.
Chlorine bleach is so destructive that it causes chipping, cracking and splintering of both natural and composite deck boards. It is highly corrosive, putting the structural components of your deck at risk. Vital elements used in the construction of your deck, such as screws, nails, bolts and hangers will be damaged and pitted over time as bleach wreak its havoc on the support of your deck. Instead of having a structure that can last several decades, you will be replacing it sooner rather than later thanks to the acidic nature of this harsh chemical.
In honor or Earth Day, which is April 22nd, Renew Crew of Charlotte wants to discuss how our eco-friendly cleaning solutions differ from others.

As spring approaches, many Charlotteans are poised to begin sprucing up their homes to get their property looking its best. In recent weeks, we have experienced a great deal of interest in our Whole House Cleaning Service. With this in mind, we thought we would explain what our whole house clean includes…
Renew Crew of Charlotte Whole House Clean Includes:
Exterior siding cleaning including your home’s soffit & fascia
Exterior of your home’s gutters
(We can also clean the inside of your home’s gutters for an additional fee)
Time and exposure to the elements can cause mold, mildew, and allow dirt to accumulate on exterior surfaces, including your home’s siding, soffit, and fascia. Renew Crew has worked with chemists for almost 20 years to perfect our exclusive 3-step cleaning and sealing process to combat both time and the elements.
Our process begins with pre-soak foam which loosens the grime that has built up on the surfaces. Unlike outdoor cleaners other companies use, ours is environmentally friendly and won’t cause any damage to plants, animals or your home. This is followed by a non-damaging controlled pressure rinse. However, it is our third and final step, which truly sets us apart from the rest. We take cleaning and exterior surface rejuvenation one step further by protecting it to repel harmful outdoor elements, including UV rays.
The result of our 3-step process is a brighter clean than any pressure washing company can provide. Renew Crew of Charlotte makes your whole home look like new!
Want to learn more about our famous three-step process? Contact us today to get your home’s exterior clean and ready for spring! (704) 944-1350.
Drive around in any neighborhood in the Charlotte area. Park Road, Elizabeth, South Charlotte, Ballantyne or Center City, and you will see Charlotteans busy at work decorating their homes in honor of the season.
Renew Crew of Charlotte wants to know if you have given any thought to the status of your home’s exterior prior to installing holiday lights, wreaths or other outdoor decor? It might not be something you give much thought to. However, placing beautiful, festive decor onto a dirty exterior will not give you a clean base to work from and will fail to place your home in the proper light for the holidays.
Much like preparing the interior of your home prior to putting up the tree or other seasonal decor, it is important to begin with a clean working area to achieve your desired results.
Our talented crews are experts at cleaning ALL your exterior surfaces. Whether it is your front porch and window sills in order to hang Christmas lights, or your driveway and sidewalks to install a candy cane lined path or decor leading to your door, we can have your entire home gleaming and ready to welcome all your holiday decor.
Since our exclusive cleaning system is eco-friendly, it is safe for all your outdoor surfaces. Renew Crew of Charlotte has perfected a quality exterior cleaning experience through our exclusive cleaning process to combat time, grime and the elements.
We begin with a pre-soak foam which loosens the grime that has built up on the surfaces. Unlike outdoor cleaners that most pressure washing companies use, ours is environmentally friendly and won’t cause any damage to plants, animals or your home.The pre-soak foam application is then followed by a non-damaging controlled pressure rinse. All work is completed by hand to give your the best clean possible without missing details other companies miss.

Companies claiming they can pressure wash, clean and maintain your exterior surfaces are abundant. However, if you do the research you will see that many of these companies promote a wide range of services with no area of specialization. They may be performing leaf cleanup in the fall and deck pressure washing in the spring. I guess you could quantify them as being a “jack of all trades, and master of none” so to speak.
Trust your exterior surfaces to the pros
Renew Crew of Charlotte is different. Exterior surface cleaning, renewal and maintenance is ALL we do. We take pride in our ability to deliver you a Renew Crew Clean and the training, knowledge and expertise to stand behind our services. Our team is trained, at length, on every tiny detail involved in correct and safe pressure washing protocol, cleaning, staining, sealing and maintaining your home’s siding, hardscapes, concrete surfaces and outdoor living spaces. We make sure each member of our team masters power washing, how to properly utilize our exclusive products and the process involved in each crucial step before they begin work on their first project - I guess you could say they get their degree in the “college of clean” prior to becoming a part of our team!
Pressure or power washing is great at removing surface dirt quickly. For a deep, long-lasting clean, there’s nothing better for outdoor surfaces. Unfortunately, if done incorrectly, it can also quickly gouge your surfaces, leaving irreparable damages to your home or deck. If you want a true, deep clean — with no risk of gouging — nothing beats a Renew Crew Clean.
While commercial pressure washing hastily bullies surface dirt away (leaving damage behind in the process), Renew Crew takes a more meticulous 3-step approach. We start with a presoak, using a gentle (yet effective) foam to work even the most persistent dirt and grey wood fibers out from any cracks or crevices. Next comes our signature pressure washing service, which powers any grit and grime away. After the first two steps, your surface will look good as new — but unlike other companies, we don’t stop there. For our final step, we apply a protective finish to help maintain your surfaces and keep them much cleaner for longer.
The result of our 3-step process is a brighter clean than any pressure washing company can provide. Renew Crew of Charlotte makes your deck, siding, concrete, etc. look like new!
Here at Renew Crew of Charlotte, we realize that your home is the single biggest investment many will make. Would you trust a novice to clean and maintain your biggest investment? Of course not. In the same manner you wouldn’t hire your lawn maintenance company to install your new air conditioner, why would you trust your home’s exterior surfaces to a company not specialized in this area of expertise? It may seem like your “saving” in the here and now, but lack of training can, and will, become evident after a short time has passed. This can include the use of inferior products, improper sealing techniques and damage caused by amateur power washing.

It’s almost that time of the year again, when tradition dictates we put away our summer whites after Labor Day. You may remember hearing your Mom, or Grandmother say “it’s bad taste to wear white after Labor Day.” This may be the case when it comes to fashion but when it comes to your home’s siding and trim, or you driveways or sidewalks, white is always in style!
If your home’s siding, trim and architectural elements are meant to be white but are now dingy, dirty and discolored by the elements and time we can make them clean and bright again! The same goes for your concrete driveway and sidewalk(s) that may be stained or discolored from neglect.
No matter what specific color your home’s siding and exterior features are meant to be, Renew Crew of Charlotte can keep them the color they are meant to be. Free of mold, mildew, stains, algae, dirt and debris.
We can clean and renew the look of all your exterior outdoor surfaces, and maintain that clean on a regular basis. Ordinary pressure washing can leave mold, mildew and embedded dirt untouched. That’s why Renew Crew of Charlotte employs exclusive solvents that penetrate deep, loosening grime from pores that typical power washing or pressure cleaning can miss. Commercial pressure washing services simply can’t provide the superior siding cleaning, concrete cleaning, deck sealing, etc. you’ll enjoy with Renew Crew. A simple pressure washing company does not have access to Renew Crew’s proprietary cleaning compounds and sealing polymers. These were developed and refined exclusively for Renew Crew of Charlotte. Neither you nor any pressure washing company can purchase these exclusive formulas in any store.
With the summer now in full swing and Labor Day just ahead you can welcome all your anticipated outdoor events with a beautifully renewed home façade, entryway, deck, patio, shed, pool deck, porch and more! We can tackle any surface on your property and brighten it. You won’t have to lift a finger while we take care of it!

July is UV Safety Awareness Month, and in honor of the occasion Renew Crew of Charlotte wants to discuss the way direct sunlight can destroy your wooden deck and wooden outdoor structures. We also want to educate you on the proper course of action to prevent sun damage.
Unprotected wood will quickly degrade with constant exposure to the sun’s damaging ultra-violet rays, and this is a big problem for decks, docks, fences and other outdoor wood structure. After consistent sun exposure over one or more years, you will notice that your surface starts to turn a silvery gray—and this is a clear indication that the fibers in your wood are breaking down. If left to continue, this damage will darken and will ultimately shorten the life of any wood surface and lead to structural issues if not cleaned, stained and protected. Decks are an expensive asset that adds value to your home, so don’t go throwing good money away by not properly maintaining it.
It doesn’t matter it if its pressure treated, cedar or any of the exotic hardwoods—no wood installed in horizontal/flat position can escape the damage that water and sun will inflict over time without protection. To avoid the wallop of a big repair bill or full-on replacement of your deck destroyed by UV sunlight, call Renew Crew of Charlotte to keep your investment protected on an annual basis.
Heat, sunlight, rain, ice and snow are speedily absorbed by unprotected wood, and it will cause it to alternately shrink, get soft and swell due to exposure to wet and dry. This punishing cycle quickly breaks wood down and degrades it to the point where it will require a pricey repair or even a complete replacement. Renew Crew of Charlotte will help you eliminate all the headaches involved with caring for one of your biggest backyard investments, and we will take a shabby or run-down looking deck and give it a revitalized look that will add plenty of years of life.
Our ecologically-friendly foaming cleansers remove years of grime and mildew and lifts off nasty dirt without harming the wood’s surface. All our products are people, landscape and pet-friendly since we don’t use any noxious products like bleach. We will then stain your deck’s surface and seal it to guard against mold and mildew, the detrimental UV rays of the intense sun and other elements. You will see your has-been wood pop back to life and look almost good as new!
Ongoing annual maintenance will ensure your deck can survive punishing weather and still look fantastic even after years of use. Our patented protective cleaning, staining and sealing gives you a lot more time in between cleanings and extends the life of the deck, and that makes it far cheaper than replacing bad boards or even a costly replacement. And beware of the cut-rate “man with a power washer” who puts a flier in your mailbox touting bargain services! We can’t tell you how often we’ve been called in after the fact to repair damage caused by high pressure water in the hands of a non-professional. We stand by our work and make sure it’s done correctly to give you peace of mind and ensure the durability of your backyard deck.
Trust us to have your deck cleaned, stained and sealed right! Contact Renew Crew of Charlotte today to learn more about our keeping your outdoor surfaces looking great year after year! Give us a call for a free consultation at 704-944-1350 or send us an email at charlotte.renewcrewclean.com

National Deck Safety Awareness Month Has Renew Crew Thinking About Your Family and Outdoor Structures
It’s National Deck Safety Awareness Month and we know that the deck is the hardest working part of your backyard without question. It serves as a major entertaining hub where all the action happens in your garden from family gatherings, barbecues, relaxing and dining. For most people it’s square footage that extends from the indoors to the outdoors and sees a lot of activity nearly daily. Because of that, maintaining your deck is a MUST since replacing it is costly! Keeping your deck in tip-top shape is essential and the way to do that is through regular maintenance.
You don’t want to wait until there are problems to begin addressing a worn out deck, and the key is proper upkeep to preserve it for many years to come. This includes a good annual cleaning so that it not only looks fabulous, but it stays in great shape. Mold, mildew and moisture pose significant threats to a deck and if you see green, black or continual wet areas this is a major problem that cannot be ignored. If you wouldn’t overlook issues with your car, you shouldn’t disregard problems facing the most expensive outdoor structure on your property either! Just like you change your oil and fluids on your vehicle, your deck needs regular cleaning, staining and a sealer to ensure it lasts beyond its statistical life. At Renew Crew of Charlotte, we can take a dingy, grimy deck and get it looking virtually brand new.
A beautiful deck is safe, functional and can have an extensive lifespan when taken care of; and much like a car mechanic, we come out and help you ensure the endurance of your deck, fencing, shed, siding and most outdoor structures that are continually exposed to the elements. Heat, sun, cold, snow, ice and rain are a major detriment to your wood structures and they need proper care on an annual basis so they can withstand what the elements throw at them every day. If you want your deck and other outdoor structures to last, you need to make sure they are cleaned and sealed and under the care of a Renew Crew of Charlotte’s annual maintenance plan. This helps you forget about the upkeep of your deck as we take care of all the logistics for you. It’s simply one less thing for you to think about that we can take off your busy list.
Renew Crew of Charlotte will come in each year to inspect your deck to identify problems such as splintering, loose rails, wood rot, mold, etc. We will be sure to point out any issues that may affect the lifespan or safety of the structure so it can be addressed and extend the life expectancy of your deck. We then use our environmentally friendly foaming cleansers that are safe for your family, pets and landscape to get things sparkling clean without the use of a heavy-handed pressure washer that can damage the surface. We then re-stain it and seal it so that it lasts for years. We are much MORE than just a deck cleaning service—we care about your home and your family’s safety too!
Let Renew Crew of Charlotte take the responsibility for caring for your wood deck and other outdoor structures so you don’t have to. Give us a call for a free consultation at 704-944-1350.
Being an exterior cleaning and finishing company we often find ourselves playing the “name game” when consulting with homeowners in regards to our services. Many times, we experience a communication problem in regards to the appropriate name used to refer to the exterior services we offer. Though many are universally known under one title, some are called by different names according to the part of the country you reside. For instance, in some areas deck staining is commonly referred to as “deck painting.”
In an effort to provide the most comprehensive outdoor surface cleaning to each and every one of our clients, we have compiled a list of the services we offer, and the various names our services are sometimes referred to.
Deck Cleaning: Sometimes referred to as pressure washing, power washing and according to the name used geographically in reference to the structure itself (deck), we have also heard it called sun porch cleaning and backyard deck cleaning.
A deck is a deck. Though some areas of the country may call it by another name, a deck is a horizontal structure capable of supporting weight, similar to a floor, but typically constructed outdoors, often elevated from the ground, and usually connected to a building. Historically, in early deck design softwoods were used for decking and these were logged from old growth forests. These include Atlantic white cedar, redwood and Western red cedar (red cedar). Atlantic City, located in New Jersey, built the first coastal boardwalk (also called a dock or pier) in the United States, originally constructed of Atlantic white cedar. Over the years, decking materials have evolved to include many wood options, including hardwoods, as well as low-maintenance materials such as synthetics.
Deck Staining: Often referred to as deck painting or deck sealing. Keep in mind, Renew Crew of Charlotte does indeed offer exterior cleaning and painting services. However, we strongly discourage the use of paint on horizontal surfaces. This is because paint doesn’t provide longevity on horizontal surfaces such as decks. Traffic and normal wear and tear can cause paint to peel and crack over time. The problem with painting a deck is that most deck surfaces are horizontal, so the paint just “lies” on the deck. As a result, those areas hold water. Painting, or using a solid-color stain with no sealer, will only help trap that moisture in the wood. So, as your deck boards expand and contract with variations in temperatures and weather conditions, paint begins to chip and you end up with peeling paint, rotting wood and other potential problems. Renew Crew of Charlotte does recommend use of a tinted stain for adding color to your flooring surfaces such as deck, porches, etc. A quality stain and sealer penetrates the wood grain to seal it, while also allowing moisture to escape from the wood. It won’t chip, peel or crack as the deck wood swells and shrinks. The more tinting the stain has, the better protected your deck will be from fading and moisture.
Patio & Hardscape Cleaning: Patio and hardscape cleaning is sometimes called patio power cleaning, power washing or pressure washing — much the same as we often hear all our cleaning services referred to. Patios are usually built from brick, brick pavers, concrete or either natural stone such as flagstone. Cleaning brick or natural stone is no more difficult than cleaning other hardscape materials but requires expertise in order to make sure the cleaning is conducted properly. If you have a brick or natural stone patio it’s a good idea to have it sealed for protection and to make future cleanings easier. Patios that have not been sealed will require more time and effort to keep them looking clean.
Patio Sealing: Sealing a patio, whether a tinted or clear sealer is applied, is sometimes referred to patio painting or tinting. With new patios we also hear it referred to as a patio finishing.
Exterior Home Siding Cleaning: Sometimes referred to as house cleaning, pressure washing or power washing. Renew Crew of Charlotte cleans virtually any type of home siding including vinyl, stucco, Hardie, painted wood and brick. Our method includes application of pre-cleaning foam that clings to your siding, loosening and lifting the dirt. Then we follow up with a non-damaging pressure washing: Siding comes out sparkling clean.
The next step in our siding cleaning process is a special polymer that penetrates and seals the surface of your siding to slow the dirt buildup and the debilitating effects of the elements. Rain, snow, pollution and even UV rays are repelled. The natural luster and texture of your siding are enhanced and, if it’s made of wood, our polymer brings out the grain. Renew Crew of Charlotte can also stain, or paint your homes siding to whatever hue you desire as a finished look.
Concrete Cleaning & Sealing: Most often referred to as pressure or power washing. Pressure washing concrete is as much sculpting as cleaning, and we pride ourselves on being artists in this area. Don’t trust a yellow-page, weekend pressure washer with your property — come to the masters. Our exclusive, 3-step, modified pressure process does a better job of concrete cleaning and concrete sealing. Thanks to our revolutionary way of renewing your concrete, your driveway or patio can take on new life and stop being the eyesore it once was. Plus, with our experts on hand, renewing your concrete is botch proof! Sit back and let us transform what used to be a hassle into a breeze.
Our goal at Renew Crew of Charlotte is to provide you with a superior clean on all of your outdoor surfaces. We hope the information contained in this post helps you better define the wide range of services we off. Contact us today to learn more about getting your home and outdoor spaces Renew Crew clean!

A great example is one of the many clubhouses we maintain around the Lake Norma area in Belmont, NC. We are tasked with ensuring that the decking to and from the water and clubhouse is always looking its best. You can believe it’s quite the feat given the constant foot traffic and the proximity to water. In this case we painted the entire clubhouse and cleaned, stained and sealed all the surrounding decking including the ramp to the dock.
We offer commercial and managed properties all around Charlotte the same expert care we provide to our Charlotte’s homes.

Then, as summer rolls in it packs yet another wallop with sun bleaching and damage if you do not guard your backyard surfaces and protect them. It can cost you hundreds and even thousands of dollars in repairs or even the cost of full replacement if you do not take the right steps to protect your wood, hardscape and siding right now.

Savvy Charlotte homeowners already know Renew Crew of Charlotte is the only place to trust for cleaning, sealing and maintaining their upscale hardscapes, patios and outdoor living spaces.
Hardscapes, including pavers and natural stone, are increasing in popularity for upscale outdoor living space additions. Not only are they astoundingly beautiful but very durable and low maintenance. However, they are still outdoors and exposed to the elements and require care to keep them looking great. As your hardscapes are exposed to the outdoor conditions certain elements will reach their surface and could cause staining and impact their pristine appearance. These include:
Hardscapes can encompass a significant investment and you want to make sure they are being cared for in a manner that keeps their integrity intact. This is certainly the case with new and existing hardscape areas on the exterior of your home and/or business. Here are Renew Crew of Charlotte’s recommendations for maintaining the beauty and integrity of your hardscape(s).
For New Installations:
Sealing your hardscape soon after installation will help prevent the penetration of oil, grease, leaves, and dust making regular maintenance much easier for the homeowner. Properly sealing your hardscape(s) will substantially reduce the damage caused by salt, freeze-thaw cycle and acid rain. Sealing pavers and hardscapes also help prevent moss and fungus formation and some sealers can stabilize the existing jointing sand and inhibit weed growth as well.
For Existing Hardscapes:
If your pavers and hardscapes are already suffering from the elements Renew Crew of Charlotte can help. We have a proprietary line of products formulated to treat stains uniquely based on their source. After removing stubborn stains we apply a cleaner that allows us to rinse away efflorescence and ground-in dirt. The cleaning process restores your hardscape(s) back to a “like new” condition.
Sealing and Protection:
Renew Crew of Charlotte offers several choices of sealers depending on the look you want to achieve. You can choose from matte/natural finishes to a wet look/color enhancing gloss finishes. Our professional outdoor surface specialists will work with you and guide you in choosing a product that best meets your needs. Contact us today to learn more at 704-944-1350.
As we begin a new year, many Charlotte area homeowners are making plans to not only enhance the curb appeal and beauty of their homes, but also get their homes ready to place on the market in the early spring. Late February through March are known to be the best time of year to list your home. Whether you are looking to upgrade to a larger home, downsize or move into a different area, making your home more appealing to more buyers is important. Before you begin to schedule costly upgrades to your home it is always a good idea to improve the appearance and “sale-ability” of the investment you already have by having the inside and outside of your home clean and looking its best.
According to a recent article featured in HGTV that outlines the top 30 tips on increasing your home’s value, cleaning and maintenance are some of the least expensive and easiest things a homeowner can do to boost curb appeal!
According to the article “30 Tips for Increasing Your Home’s Value” these two recommendations “shine” through for increasing the face value for prospective buyers:
The old adage that you only get one shot at a first impression is true. So, make your home shine from the moment someone pulls into the driveway and walks through the door. Hiring a cleaning service to clean the exterior and interior of your home will ensure a thorough top-to-bottom scrubbing. Even if you clean your home regularly, there are nooks and crannies that you may miss or overlook. Let a cleaning service do the dirty work to really make your home sparkle.
Keeping up With Regular Maintenance
The article suggests walking around your home and making a list of all the little things that are broken or in need of repair. This includes the exterior as well as the interior areas of your home. Individually, small repairs might not seem important, but if every area has just one thing wrong, those small things will add up to create the impression that your home has been neglected. This may include a front door bell that doesn’t work or even a backyard deck that is dirty and in need of staining. Staying on top of maintenance today also eliminates problems down the road should you decide to sell. There is no substitute for being a proactive homeowner and keeping up with maintenance on your home and outdoor structures — and the difference shows!
These two areas are where Renew Crew of Charlotte can help. Our specialty is helping you maintain a clean and maintained home through our exterior cleaning and renewal services. We offer a wide menu of services from whole home exterior cleaning to deck cleaning and staining and much more a’ la carte. Our experienced exterior cleaning and sealing professional can evaluate the surfaces during a free walk-through consultation to help you determine the areas that need the most attention. If you are thinking of selling your home in the near future — you can leave all the “dirty work” to us!

It’s no secret that the Charlotte area has received more than its fair share of wet weather this season. Rain continues to fall in and around Charlotte paired with unusually higher than usual temperatures. This combination of wet, humid conditions and warm weather can lead to increased amounts of mold and mildew building up on your home and outdoor surfaces.
Both mold and mildew belong to the fungi family and require moisture and organic material to grow. Some molds are useful (like in cheese making or penicillin) while others can be extremely toxic. Mold can cause structural damage too. Mold can start to grow on surfaces within 24 hours and reproduce quickly.
Mildew is also a decomposer of dead organic material, much like mold, and grows in wet and warm areas. Mildew can be more easily found as it surfaces quickly and in smaller patches, rather than larger infestations like mold. It can appear more powdery and white, but it can also be yellow, gray, brown, or black in appearance.
Mold and mildew accumulation on your home’s siding, walkways, patios, deck and other outdoor surfaces not only looks bad, it can take make horizontal walking surfaces slippery and treacherous to use. Thankfully, Renew Crew of Charlotte has the perfect answer for ridding your outdoor surfaces of mold and mildew and helping them stay clean for longer periods of time.
Notice the mold accumulation on this outdoor stone fireplace before Renew Crew completed the cleaning:
Our eco-friendly solutions kill mold and mildew without harsh chlorines that can bleach your wood and kill your plants. And your surfaces look lovelier longer thanks to special polymers that seal and protect against grime and the elements.
Ordinary pressure washing can leave mold, mildew and embedded dirt untouched. That’s why Renew Crew of Charlotte employs exclusive solvents that penetrate deep, loosening grime from pores that typical power washing or pressure cleaning can miss. Commercial pressure washing services simply can’t provide the superior concrete cleaning, deck sealing, etc. you’ll enjoy with Renew Crew. A simple pressure washing company does not have access to Renew Crew’s proprietary cleaning compounds and sealing polymers. These were developed and refined exclusively for Renew Crew of Charlotte. Neither you nor any pressure washing company can purchase these exclusive formulas in any store.
At Renew Crew of Charlotte, we know that your home’s outdoor surfaces are more than just an investment — they’re a showcase. That’s why we’ve invested years of research in developing eco-friendly cleaning compounds that, when paired with a controlled pressure cleaning, lift dirt, mold and mildew away and enhance your surfaces’ natural luster — despite Mother Nature.

When I think of the methodology behind our power washing technique here at Renew Crew of Charlotte, I automatically begin to hear the chorus from the classic 1979 song by Nick Lowe “Cruel to be kind” play out in my mind. The reason for this is because so many other pressure washing companies assume you have to use a high PSI in order to achieve successful exterior surface cleaning results, when this is certainly NOT the case.
To retain the integrity of your surface, whether it is a wooden deck or fence, the siding on your home, concrete driveway or even a paver or stone sidewalk, requires a “kind” approach to this vital step involved in surface cleaning. Traditional pressure washing can leave embedded dirt within the nooks and crannies of your outdoor surfaces untouched. That’s why Renew Crew of Charlotte employs exclusive solvents that penetrate deep, loosening grime from pores that power washing or pressure cleaning can miss. After our special solvents bring the dirt and grime to the surface, our professionally trained technicians then wash it away with our special gentle power washing technique.
At Renew Crew of Charlotte, we know that your home’s outdoor surfaces are more than just an investment — they’re a showcase, and a reflection of you. That’s why we’ve invested years of research in developing eco-friendly cleaning compounds that, when paired with a controlled pressure cleaning lift dirt away and enhance your surfaces’ natural luster.
(Before and after flagstone sidewalk cleaning by Renew Crew of Charlotte)
A standard power cleaning uses unnecessary brute force to blast dirt away, but it doesn’t penetrate to kill mold and mildew, or scour away deep-seated grime. Worse yet, if the amount of pressure used or the angle of the cleaning is just a little off, the pressure cleaning could take gouges out of your siding, decking, driveway or mangle nearby plants.
Our eco-friendly solutions will kill mold and mildew without harsh chlorines that can damage your surfaces and kill your plants. And your exterior surfaces will stay clean longer thanks to special polymers that seal and protect against grime and the elements.
Commercial pressure washing services simply can’t provide the superior concrete cleaning, deck sealing, etc. you’ll enjoy with Renew Crew at Charlotte. A simple pressure washing company does not have access to our proprietary cleaning compounds and sealing polymers. These were developed and refined exclusively for Renew Crew. This means that neither you nor any pressure washing company can purchase these exclusive formulas in any store.
Take a look at the Renew Crew clean in action:
If you are ready to get your outdoor surfaces looking their best while maintaining their integrity, contact Renew Crew of Charlotte, and remember your power washing company doesn’t have to be cruel to be kind on your outdoor surfaces!

Out of all the inquiries we receive at Renew Crew of Charlotte in regards to our exterior cleaning and sealing services, the question of “how often should my Charlotte wooden deck be stained”, is the most frequently asked.
To answer this question, there are many factors that come into play. #1 has your wooden deck been maintained properly since installation? #2 what is the proximity and placement of your deck in regards to the sun, or is your deck located in a more northerly exposure? What type (or species) of wood is your deck built from — Pressure treated pine or a hardwood such as Ipe?
(Newly cleaned & stained pressure treated deck on Lake Norman by Renew Crew of Charlotte)
Answering these questions helps determine the frequency your deck needs to be stained in order to keep it looking, and performing, its best. Keep in mind that the location of your deck in proximity with the sun, or shade, can determine how your deck’s surface will respond to outside influences such as fading from sun exposure, or mold and mildew accumulation from a northern orientation. There are dozens of factors involved when determining the frequency to stain your outdoor deck each of which can influence the stain’s longevity. Keep in mind your outdoor living space is exposed directly to the elements such as UV rays during summer and during winter is exposed to extremely cold temperatures.
(Same Lake Norman deck before Renew Crew of Charlotte completed cleaning and staining)
When all these factors come into play, your particular deck may require restaining each year, or maybe every other year. Here at Renew Crew of Charlotte we have the solution for homeowners that may have a deck that requires more or less attention — our Renew Crew Maintenance program! This program takes the “guess-work” out of knowing when is the right time to maintain your outdoor space in order to keep it looking, and functioning, at optimal performance. Once we have cleaned and sealed your deck we can sign you up to participate in our maintenance program. This means every three months following completion of the initial service, one of our experts will inspect your deck to make sure the stain is doing its job, to see if a cleaning or any touch ups are needed. If this is the case, we will schedule accordingly. By paying close attention to your deck, and using this approach, we can keep your deck looking beautiful much longer and save you money over the life of your deck. We care about our customers and strive to enhance their outdoor living experience by taking care of maintenance of your space, so you don’t have to worry about it!
If your existing deck is in need of a makeover or if you are interested in keeping your new deck or wooden outdoor structure looking new, give us a call for a free consultation at 704-944-1350 or send us an email at to learn more about all the exterior the surfaces we clean and renew through our proven cleaning and restoring process.
You may think it is impossible to have your outdoor surfaces cleaned and renewed during the rainier seasons of the year, but this is a common misconception. In lieu of the deluge of rainfall that has recently occurred in the Carolinas we feel it is important to address the logistics of how wet (or inclement) weather can contribute to a pause in moving ahead with cleaning your outdoor surfaces.
Why put off what Renew Crew of Charlotte can do today?
The truth is when it comes to the time period needed for a successful deck, patio, siding or other exterior cleaning project to take place we adhere to the 24/24 rule. This means in order for your deck or other outdoor surface to receive a Renew Crew of Charlotte clean your outdoor surface only needs to be free of rain for 24 hours, and once we have completed your cleaning and sealing it only needs to remain free of rain for an additional 24 hours. That is a total of just two days which means now would be the perfect time to move ahead with your outdoor surface renewal plans so your home and outdoor spaces are sparkling clean in time for the holidays ahead!
In addition to having your humble abode looking its best, our exclusive 3-part process protects your deck, patio and outdoor space from the wrath of Mother Nature as we look ahead to the inclement winter weather. Having your surfaces properly cleaned and sealed prior to the arrival of winter provides a barrier against rain, ice and the mold and mildew that can accumulate and cause damage to your outdoor surfaces — our sealers protect your deck in much the same way an umbrella keeps you protected on a rainy, winter’s day!
Our 3-step process starts with pre-soak foam. Unlike outdoor cleaners that most pressure washing companies in Charlotte use, ours is environmentally friendly and won’t cause any damage to plants, animals or your outdoor surfaces. Once our foam has had a chance to penetrate your outdoor surfaces to loosen the dirt and grime, we use non-damaging controlled pressure to rinse it all, leaving your outdoor exteriors and spaces looking beautiful. The third and final step in our Renew Crew process is what truly sets us apart from other outdoor surface cleaning companies. We take cleaning and exterior surface rejuvenation one step further and protect it to repel harmful outdoor elements, including UV rays.
Before the chill in the air turns into harsh winter weather, clean and protect your deck to prepare it for the long winter months ahead. Contact Renew Crew of Charlotte to winterize, renew and protect your outdoor surfaces.

We would also like to mention our neighbors in South Carolina who have experienced a catastrophic amount of rainfall in recent weeks. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all residents in these areas as we come together for strength, patience and a time to rebuild.
Within the realm of outdoor living space maintenance, such as decks, there are new products that come onto the market everyday that are full of false promises. One product may boast resurfacing benefits, while another may promise to keep your deck looking new for decades. In our line of business we have seen many deck owners place their hopes of restoring their aged or worn wooden deck into products that usually won’t deliver on their claims. Case in point are the new “paint on” plastic deck coatings you may have seen on TV or noticed in the “big box” home improvement stores. Some retailers have been stocking products in the paint section that appear to put a thick coating on decking boards, giving them the appearance of synthetic decking. These products claim to offer superior protection for the wood and to eliminate splinters, nail-holes and minor cracks with ease of application touting a homeowner can apply the product over the course of a weekend.
Too good to be true?
With any new product that comes onto the market, we are careful to research it thoroughly before forming an opinion, in the case of many of the plastic deck coatings on the market today however, the old saying “too good to be true” comes to mind. Here’s why:
Although each individual case is different, our experience with “fix all” products such as these is anything but positive. These products only serve as a short-term solution to a long-term problem. Many are made up of epoxy-style coverings that appear to be smooth, flawless and cool to the touch when exposed to the sun but in reality can come out rough and retain heat on structures that have a southern exposure. Does the scenario of your flip-flops melting into your deck on a balmy Saturday afternoon seem pleasant?
These products also require frequent and costly reapplication in most scenarios. With wooden decking, as with any of the effects of sun and water on horizontal surfaces application over rotten wood, damp wood will likely cause failures of the coatings.
Additional inconsistencies that must also be addressed are tight spacing of existing deck boards and reduced drainage capabilities. The circumference of these coatings will make tight spacing worse, and the area between your decking boards must be cleaned out regularly or face side rot — even down to the last tiny pine needle. Flashing issues at the ledger are also a concern as is lack of proper waterproofing over joist tops.
The possibility of success, if any, of using these “paint-on” products lies within the surface preparation itself. Wood needs to be cleaned and free of any debris, oils or grease (this includes barbecue sauce). Prerequisites also include replacement of any loose nails. Manufacturers of the product even recommend your existing deck be screwed down to avoid the chances of any nails working up through the new finish.
With all the shortfalls and preparation necessary why would a deck owner even consider plastic deck coatings as an alternative to regular deck maintenance?
Deck maintenance from Renew Crew of Charlotte is the trusted, tried and true answer to your decking woes. Our eco-friendly, 3-part exclusive clean and seal system will keep your deck looking new at a fraction of the cost of applying plastic deck coatings, and we stand behind our promise of delivering a deck that is clean and protected! No hype, no empty promises, just honest professional results every time!

The myth of using bleach as a deck cleanser has been ongoing for decades, and it can’t be more wrong! Unscrupulous and uneducated cleaning companies will incorrectly utilize bleach to clean a deck and other outdoor surfaces and this is very damaging and as environmentally unfriendly as it can get. Less knowledgable cleaning crews use bleach by the bucketful to supposedly clean your deck because it’s low-cost to them, but it’s extremely harmful to your surfaces, your landscaping and most of all — your family.
Bleach is highly poisonous to breathe in and it breaks down decking made of natural wood and composite to the point that it will need to be replaced because it deteriorates the makeup of the structure’s integrity. In fact, many composite board manufacturers will void your warranty if bleach is used as a cleaner. It’s so damaging and harmful that it can cause innumerable health problems such as vomiting, injury to your lungs, burns, and excruciating headaches. And it doesn’t only affect humans—it also affects our pets too.
Chlorine bleach is so destructive that it causes chipping, cracking and splintering of both natural and composite deck boards. It is highly corrosive, putting the structural components of your deck at risk as well. Anything such as screws, nails, bolts and hangers will be damaged and pitted over time as bleach wreak its havoc on the support of your deck. Instead of having a structure that can last several decades, you will be replacing it sooner rather than later thanks to the acidic nature of this harsh chemical. Why would you throw away a big investment in a deck only to have a cleaning crew destroy it because bleach is cheap and easily accessible at any big box store?
Not only is the fact that many exterior surface cleaning companies use bleach, but they also typically use a high PSI power washer to attempt to scour your deck clean, and there is nothing worse than an unqualified crew damaging your decking boards because they are using unnecessarily high levels of water pressure to wash your deck. You are risking pitting and rupturing your deck boards with excessive and unnecessary water force and the only way to fix that is simply through replacement.
Choose Renew Crew of Charlotte to preserve your deck for years of enjoyment and to properly care and clean your deck with environmentally-friendly foaming cleaners that are harmless to you, your pets, your shrubbery and the deck itself. With regular maintenance, we can assure you that your deck will last and provide your family with plenty of enjoyment for years to come.

Let’s face it, a dazzling clean home exterior is a great invitation to friends and family who are visiting, and it even makes the neighbors smile. You can be proud to stand in front of your property when your home’s siding, front entrance, sidewalk, driveway, deck and outdoor spaces are sparkling clean and looking vibrant. After all, who wants to stare at a dingy and dull house on the block where things look unkempt?
Autumn has officially arrived and that means family and friends will be coming to call as we move toward into the holiday season! The period of October through January is the “most visited” (and busiest) time of year for most households. In October Halloween arrives, and so do friends, neighbors, family and those sweet trick-or-treaters; in November Thanksgiving arrives and so will your dinner guests for a time of giving thanks and making memories; and of course, in December Christmas arrives and that means there will be holiday gatherings and guests to come-a-knocking at the height of the holiday entertaining season! With all the extra traffic converging on your home, you want to ensure your outdoor surfaces are sparkling clean. This includes your driveway, sidewalks, home’s exterior, entrance and your backyard structures too!
When visitors come over they will enjoy sitting on your deck or patio where everything looks fresh and new. They can huddle around your outdoor fireplace or fire pit with a hot cocoa and admire your beautiful property that is clearly being maintained. We are so lucky that Charlotte weather in the Carolinas affords us plenty of outdoor time well into the fall. We can host an outdoor barbecue and cheer for our Panthers during a Sunday afternoon football game while friends are digging into hotdogs and hamburgers outdoors. Show off a sparkling clean property without mildew, grime and mold in every corner. Best of all, you can hire Renew Crew of Charlotte to do it right and take the task off your hands.
Renew Crew of Charlotte can have your sidewalks, siding, deck, patio, driveway, fence and any outdoor structure looking spiffy before the big Thanksgiving dinner. Our patented foaming cleansers are environmentally-friendly and safe for your family, landscaping and pets. We do not use bleach or any harmful chemicals that are noxious, smelly or can irritate your respiratory system. Our technicians are specially trained to prevent damage to your home and outdoor structures. We can also stain or seal your wood surfaces as well so that they provide years of extended use.
Beware of the untrained home cleaners that knock on your door and use harsh chemicals and high pressure washers to do the job. It’s terribly damaging, unsafe and nasty on the environment. Why risk the health of your family and pets, jeopardize the structures of your home which can be splintered, pitted and ruined by improper cleaning. This can shorten the life of your siding and outdoor structures and even cause the need for early replacement.

Unlike our competitors, we stand behind our work and ensure you are satisfied. If you think you can tackle the massive job of cleaning your own home—think twice! Reaching up high onto a second story on a dangerous ladder to clean peaks and gutters is not something someone unqualified should be doing.

Let us take all the hard work out of it and do it quickly. Putting off the task only prevents necessary maintenance to prolong the life of your home and outdoor structures.
The holiday season is fast approaching starting with Halloween in a few weeks, so visitors will inevitably end up at our doorstep and will be checking out your home whether you like it or not. Before you put up your holiday decorations and lights be sure to start with a clean slate and have your home professionally cleaned.

Renew Crew of Charlotte specializes in cleaning ALL types of outdoor surfaces, from siding and sidewalks to patios and decks — decks built from a variety of mediums including PT wood, composite and hardwood. Hardwoods are very popular among discriminating homeowners. Ipe (pronounced Ee-pay) is at the top of this list and is among one of the finest exotic hardwoods on the market today. Coveted for it’s striking pattern and rich color, Ipe is one of the many hardwood decking surfaces Renew Crew of Charlotte is proud to clean and maintain for homeowners all over Charlotte and the surrounding region.
Exotic hardwood outdoor surfaces like Ipe are not hard to maintain, but there is some work involved. Over time Ipe begins to develop a dove gray patina as the sun’s rays bleach the exposed wood fibers. Some homeowners prefer the weathered look. But we can restore the original luster of the wood and keep it looking beautiful year after year. One of our most recent projects in South Charlotte demonstrates how we are able to clean and restore the beauty of an Ipe deck:

Autumn is the perfect season to improve upon your existing outdoor spaces, consider a new outdoor space addition or finally tackle that remodeling project you’ve been longing for.
Who is Renew Crew?
At Renew Crew of Charlotte, we pride ourselves in providing a comprehensive cleaning and protection service that our clients love. We clean decks, patios and other hardscapes, siding, sidewalks, fences, driveways and much more!
Our 3-step cleaning & sealing process starts with pre-soak foam. Unlike outdoor cleaners that most pressure washing companies in Charlotte use, ours is environmentally friendly and won’t cause any damage to plants, animals or your outdoor surfaces.
Once our foam has had a chance to penetrate your outdoor surfaces to loosen the dirt and grime, we use non-damaging controlled pressure to rinse it all, leaving your outdoor exteriors and spaces looking beautiful.
The third and final step in our Renew Crew process is what truly sets us apart from other outdoor surface cleaning companies. We take cleaning and exterior surface rejuvenation one step further and protect it to repel harmful outdoor elements, including UV rays.
Come join our open house this Saturday September 26th from 10AM – 4PM. Our indoor/outdoor showroom is located at 2311 Village Lake Drive, Charlotte, NC. Come by for a tour, to enjoy some food and drink, or just to browse our showroom and get some ideas. We look forward to seeing you Saturday!
Renew Crew of Charlotte will be at the Southern Ideal Home Show Sept. 11-13th, stop by and say hi!
With only a few more weeks before autumn arrives wouldn’t it be great to have you outdoor surfaces looking their best? Renew Crew of Charlotte is here to help. We use an exclusive, eco-friendly 3- step process to provide our clients with the cleanest outdoor surfaces possible.This includes your home’s deck, siding, patio, gutters, driveway and walkways — we can get the job done professionally, saving you time and aggravation.
Over time, exposure to Mother Nature can cause mold and mildew, and allow dirt to accumulate on exterior surfaces. Renew Crew has worked with chemists for almost 20 years to perfect our exclusive 3-step cleaning and sealing process to combat both time and the elements. It starts with pre-soak foam which loosens the grime that has built up on the surfaces. Unlike outdoor cleaners other companies use, ours is environmentally friendly and won’t cause any damage to plants, animals or your home. This is followed by a non-damaging controlled pressure rinse. However, it is our third and final step, which truly sets us apart from the rest. We take cleaning and exterior surface rejuvenation one step further by protecting it to repel harmful outdoor elements, including UV rays.

Being in the business of exterior home cleaning and restoration, it is not uncommon to arrive at a potential clients’ home for a deck cleaning consultation and proceed to ring the doorbell only to notice mold and mildew accumulation on their front stoop, or front entry to their home. Keep in mind, if we notice it, guests and visitors that enter your home through the front door are probably noticing it too. The good news is Renew Crew of Charlotte is so much more than just a deck cleaning company. We specialize in cleaning, renewing and maintaining all your home’s outdoor surfaces including siding, sidewalks, driveways and yes even the front entry (or stoop) of your home!
Mold, mildew and even moss can be a constant battle to keep at bay on the front stoop of your home, especially if the surface is constructed of brick, stone or pavers. Renew Crew of Charlotte realizes that your brick, stone and hardscapes are an investment, and we can keep your investment looking new and maintained. Our 3-step cleaning process that Renew Crew has employed for the last 20 years combines pressure washing services with a gentle hand.
Renew Crew of Charlotte utilizes a specialty foam, designed to spread into any and all crack and crevices, including the grouted areas of your front stoop that are prone to facilitate mold and mildew.This foam soaks in deep, allowing dirt, mold and mildew to adhere to our solution. This solution, once set, is rinsed away with our controlled pressure washing system. With Renew Crewof Charlotte, your surfaces won’t be “blasted,” causing damage like traditional pressure washing. Our system is controlled at a steady rate, ensuring the foam, dirt and mildew is lifted, without the classic gouges that power washers can leave.
Just look at the difference the Renew Crew of Charlotte clean can make!
Once rinsed, we also apply an eco-friendly sealant solution. This solution prevents your exterior surfaces from the classic signs of aging. Fading from the sun is eliminated with the UV-blocking properties in our ingredients. This sealant also acts as a barrier, to prevent that dirt, grime and mold from building up so quickly. This means that not only will your outdoor surfaces be clean, they will remain clean much longer than usual.
Let Renew Crew of Charlotte keep your home’s entrance clean, welcoming and a source of pride that compliments the beauty of your home and landscape. We can clean and renew your stone, paver, brick or hardscape front stoop, front patio and all your other outdoor surfaces safely and gently. Give us a call for a free consultation at 704-944-1350 or send us an email at charlotte.renewcrewclean.com
The term “gone to the dogs” is defined as something that has gone wrong or lost all the good things it had. This is an idiom we have heard used by many customers who have used a “fly by night” or inexperienced deck cleaning or surface renewal company that did not provide a satisfactory level of service or even caused damage to their structure during their project.
We have seen home siding with large holes and decks virtually ruined by a power washer with too high a PSI level and the wrong chemicals (like harsh bleach) used with disastrous results. Harsh chemicals can kill your landscape, bleach out the wood on your deck, and harm a wood plank to the point that it is permanently gouged and splintered which can result in hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repairs later.
Here at Renew Crew of Charlotte, we strive to be the best at what we do which is exterior surface cleaning and protection. Our highly effective three-step process lifts built-up outdoor dirt, mold and grime and brings it to the surface where we can wash it away leaving your outdoor surfaces not only clean but protected! We specialize in cleaning wooden and composite decks, outdoor structures, hardscape and stone structures such as patios and sidewalks, gutters, driveways and even the siding on your home.
Renew Crew deck cleaning before and after — amazing!
Our exclusive proprietary 3-step pre-foam, power clean and protection process is safe and eco-friendly to the surrounding landscape, your family and your beloved pets, we can assure you that our patented solution to eradicating years of grime and mildew growth is safe. We utilize a foaming cleaning agent that carefully removes nasty grime without harming the wood planks. We don’t use any dangerous chemical products such as bleach that can ruin your prized plants, shrubs and flowers and can harshly decolorize your wood and damage your patio. Renew Crew’s sealer specially guards your deck against mildew and mold, blocks UV rays of the sun which can lighten wood and cause it to dry out, and protects from the harsh winter effects too.
