It's more than clean, it's Renew Crew Clean

At Renew Crew of Charlotte, We Never Use Bleach. Here is Why.

During a recent consultation Renew Crew of Charlotte was asked how long it would take the “burnt” areas of the landscaping to revive after the deck was cleaned and sealed. I must confess that we were flabbergasted!! We asked the homeowner to elaborate upon what they meant by “burnt” and that’s when two of the most harmful words in the deck cleaning and maintenance industry were uttered…chlorine bleach. Not only is it toxic to your grass, shrubs and other plants, but exceptionally harmful to your deck’s surface as well. It is for these reasons why bleach is not a part of the Renew Crew proprietary 3-step process.

Although chlorine bleach will remove mold and mildew on the wood of your deck, it will also damage your deck’s surface and almost always remove the natural color from the wood. In addition, it will accelerate corrosion of nails, screws, and metal framing connectors, which can lead to premature failure of the deck structure. With so many potentially harmful effects from its use, it’s quite shocking to discover the number of homeowners and business owners who still use it.

At Renew Crew of Charlotte, we do not use bleach. Our goal is to offer you excellent personal service while delivering a cleaner clean, a greener clean and a longer-lasting clean – all without risking damage to your surfaces or landscaping. Our unique, 3-step process developed as a result of this goal, is as follows:

  • Step 1 – Pre-soak Foam – Our exclusive biodegradable and environmentally-friendly foam clings and penetrates, loosening deep-down dirt and grey wood fibers. The foam lifts the loosened dirt, bringing it to the surface, while also killing mold and mildew without harsh chlorines.
  • Step 2 – Power clean – Non-damaging pressure rinses grime away and releases grey wood fibers. Surfaces are restored to their original appeal without gouging or blasting away good wood, and our power cleaning will not harm your plants.
  • Step 3 – Protective finish – Special polymers enhance and prolong the natural beauty of woods and extend the life of your surfaces. Our protective finish fights weather damage by repelling the elements, including UV rays. It also seals pores to fight dirt buildup.
