From Military to Pressure Washing

Not many people can say that they were born and raised in Lakeland. I am proud to say that I am and that my family has been in Lakeland for seven generations! In tenth grade, it became apparent to me that I just wasn’t all that interested in attending college after high school. I knew I still needed to do something with my life though. After I graduated, I decided to enlist in the United States Marine Corps.

The Marine Corps was an extremely impactful part of my life. Boot camp was thirteen weeks in Parris Island, SC. From there I went to Infantry Training School for eight weeks. Unlike most of the Marines I started with who all got to stay on the east coast, I was one of a few others who were stationed on the west coast. I found myself reporting to 1st Battalion 7th Marines (1/7) in Twentynine Palms, California. Once I got to 1/7 the real adventure began. From there I did desert training in the Mojave Desert. Mountain and snow training was in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Jungle warfare training was in Okinawa, Japan, and Thailand. Mountain warfare training was at Mt. Fuji, Japan.

Finally, I ended up in Kuwait and was a part of the initial invasion of Iraq in 2003. While in Iraq, my unit did eight months and three days of combat. We participated in the most combat operations than any other unit since Vietnam. Due to our actions we were awarded the Presidential Unit Citation.

After my four year enlistment, I decided to get out and received an Honorable Discharge. I wasn't sure what to do with my life, but I knew that I didn't want to settle for just any old job. I was renting a house and my dad let me borrow his pressure washer to wash my driveway. While I was washing my driveway a neighbor asked if I would do his for thirty dollars. I agreed, then his neighbor came out and asked the same thing. A business was born.

That was ten years ago as of February 2015. Just like any other business, I started out really slow and not working much at all. My goal was to do $1,000.00 per month. I figured if I could reach that goal, then $12,000.00 per year washing driveways sounded like some good extra money. Eventually, the company grew and we added house washing, roof washing, fence washing, pool enclosure washing, pool deck washing and any other random item a person has at their property.

Why Hire a Professional Pressure Washing Service?

Professional Pressure Washing Service vs. D.I.Y

Why should I hire a professional pressure washing service instead of just doing it myself? Most people think that pressure washing involves waving a high pressure wand back and forth to blast away stains on outdoor surfaces. This is a common assumption, but we’d like to explain how this is actually incorrect pressure washing technique which usually causes a lot more harm than good.

Aside from the high pressure wand method taking up your entire weekend, causing pain in your back and hands, and leaving unsightly lines behind, using high pressure on residential surfaces can cause severe damage. High pressure can lift paint, dull windows, leave permanent marks on concrete, and the list goes on. I have serviced many properties where I see evidence of improper pressure washing techniques. Often times the damage is so severe that it requires repainting or replacement of damaged surfaces.

Are You Using Proper Detergents When Pressure Washing?

At Xcellent Xteriors, we use safe and effective detergents that penetrate the mold, mildew, and fungus to ensure that they are eradicated from the surface. In conjunction with our low pressure system the exterior of your home is kept intact without damage and left sparkling clean! Proper detergents are the key to washing a house or any other surface for that matter. I always tell my customers that pressure washing a house without using proper detergents is like pulling a weed without killing the root. Within a couple weeks the weed just regenerates and causes aggravation. Well pressure washing without the use of detergents allows the mold, mildew, and or fungus to return in a short amount of time and therefore would just be a waste of time and money. By allowing a proper dwelling time, the detergent removes the stains and prevents regrowth. This also creates a much cleaner environment for you and your family. The detergents we use are safe for your home, plants, and family members as well.

Time is precious! Don’t spend your entire weekend waving a wand back and forth endlessly! With our proven system, we can complete most residential jobs in under two hours! So enjoy your weekend by letting Xcellent Xteriors clean your home exterior quickly, efficiently, affordably, and thoroughly!

If there is one thing to take away from this article it is that high pressure should not be used to wash your house. Any pressure washing company that is not using proper detergents is wasting your time and money. The improper use of pressure will cause severe damage to surfaces on your property. It is also a safety hazard if used incorrectly. The pressure we use is so low that we can actually hold our hands in front of it without causing injury.

Xcellent Xteriors has over ten years of pressure washing expertise. We are also fully licensed and insured. We are also a combat veteran owned business. To learn more about who Xcellent Xteriors is and how we operate, contact us online at www.XcellentXteriors.com or feel free to call us at 863-838-6850.

Spring Cleaning for Charity

Spring CleaningXcellent Xteriors loves Lakeland!

We wanted to give back to our beloved community, but how? This past March, a brilliant idea was developed as we sat and brainstormed with the geniuses of Maximize Digital Media... A charity campaign!

We are all subjected to solicitation on what seems like a daily basis, so we didn't want to bombard our fans with more solicitation. Instead, we just asked for participation!

The nomination phase was for nominations of a local charity who would then be added to a voting list. After a couple weeks of nominations, we started the voting phase! Anyone could vote once per day and at the end of the voting phase the highest number of votes won!

This great photo features Ryan and Lauren Edrington of Xcellent Xteriors alongside members of the winning organization, Lakeland Youth Alliance, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2008. Their mission is to provide a safe space for GLBTQ youth and their straight allies in Central Florida.

We were honored to present them with a check for $1,776.40!

The 1st Annual Spring Cleaning for Charity was a great success! We are thankful for all those who participated! See you in the Spring of 2016!
