How often should building exteriors be cleaned?
All buildings are different, but typically surfaces stay clean for years. However, trees and shrubs in shaded areas will increase the growth of mold and mildew. If you see staining or mold-like substance – you may want to consider powerwashing.
I have small, dark spots on my siding. What is this?
Most likely they are Artillery Fungus Spores. This fungus lives in mulch and will shoot its spores into the air. This often lands on your siding. They are not always completely removed with normal power washing.
