Our process restores a dirty surface to a like new condition at a small fraction of the cost of painting or replacement.
Many facilities utilize a contractor to perform regular cleaning on the system to prevent these problems from occurring. If they are not maintained, air laden with contaminants such as mold, dirt, and dust can be breathed regularly by every customer that enters the facility. Depending on the type of contaminants, adverse health conditions can result. This is the basic reason that many commercial establishments, engage in such a preventative maintenance program.
Most buildings have exteriors consisting of brick, vinyl siding, aluminum siding, stone, masonry, or cedar. Up to now, high pressure washing with bleaching agents and acid cleaning were the only method to clean these surfaces. Besides being harmful to the environment, these products actually damage the surface. Vinyl becomes chalky with bleach. High pressure acid cleaning damages the brick by pitting it, and it can burn the brick, turning it to an orange color.
Awnings prevent dirt, leaves, mold, and even rain from falling upon you. However, these biological agents that fall on the awning discolor it, adhere to its surface, and cause the growths to start eating into the surface! The Caltex System removes these growths, cleans the surface, and restores it to a “like new” appearance.
Mussels, algae, and other marine growths over time adhere to boat keels that are below the surface. The boat surfaces may also simply appear discolored or dirty from oil and grime. Typically at the end of the season boats are cleaned prior to “dry docking” them for the winter or off season.
