With several options available, Clear Skies is sure to meet your window cleaning needs in a way that is tailored to you: you have the choice of saving money by just having the outside of the window cleaned and the screens simply wiped off, or you may opt for the deluxe job that involves cleaning both the inside and outside of your windows, wiping your tracks, and hand-washing the window screens. Just think how pleased and satisfied you will be when the place where you live or work is brightened by these spotless, stunning, CLEAN windows!
Let us maintain your gutters. Neglected gutters become clogged, weighed down, rusted and otherwise broken due to fallen leaves, pinecones, evergreen needles, toys, and moss growth. Plus mosquitoes will breed in the standing water, and the leaking or overflowing water can breach the home’s foundation, potentially flooding your basement. Put Clear Skies Cleaning to work on a yearly gutter upkeep schedule. And here’s a tip: ask us to whiten the exterior of your gutters. (It makes a major difference when viewed from the curb!
Don’t let the moss wreck your shingles! We start with a light scrape for thick moss, a proven process that does not affect the shingles. We then take a backpack air blower to the loose debris, followed by a complete clearance of all the debris from the inside of the gutters and thorough check to ensure that all the downspouts are clear of any clogs. We then apply a powdered “faux-zinc” treatment (thinking of the fish) to the roof that terminates the spores and any remaining moss, which will dry up, a process you will see happen around 2 weeks after the next rain. Weather will abrade away remaining dead moss over roughly 9–12 weeks of normal Seattle rain, AND none of this will harm your plants, home, or pets, thanks to our environmentally friendly approach!
Collect all the Sun's rays you can!
Collect all the sun’s rays you can! $15/panel w/ $149 minimum. We use a soap that is biodegradable and formulated specially for use on solar panels. By keeping your solar panels clean you maximize the panels’ photovoltaic potential. Solar intake routinely jumps 10%–40% with cleaning. Solar panels are supposed to be dark, since that is how they best absorb light. Dust and grime by contrast are often lighter-colored, reflective, and filter out the sun’s rays.
Light Bulb or Battery Change (hard to reach)
Change the battery before it starts chirping! $89, or $45–$55/each when added on to other services. We can reach that entry light that requires a 24-foot ladder or replace the battery to that smoke or carbon monoxide detector that is beyond the reach of a footstool.
Exterior of Gutter Cleaning
Polished exterior gutters look amazing! $120/hr w/ 2-hr minimum. We can clean the outsides of the gutters too! Removing the green algae, moss, mildew, tiger stripes, and dirt will unveil a whole new gutter look that’s clean and bright! Depending on the gutter's exterior discoloration and condition, the end result can vary. After we’ve treated a gutter, it usually shows remarkable improvement with some even looking just like new!
Remove an Old Satellite Dish from the roof or side of the house
Get rid of that weathered eyesore for $149–$159, or $129–$139 when bundled with other services. When removing dishes from roofs, we can hit it with Henry®’s tar. If installed on siding, we can advise on which compound you will want to supply (wood putty or another compound depending). If we need to paint over it, this may require waiting while the compound dries, so just bear in mind that we do bill by the hour.
Deck Plexiglas® Awning
Let the sun shine through! We are equipped to clean all your Plexiglas® or glass awnings.
Roof Anchors Installed
Steep roofs please consider!
$69/anchor. Two and sometimes three anchors are recommended on steep roofs. We believe it is worth the small investment in order to keep our Technicians safe and injury-free.
Healthy gutters work better!
$120/hr w/ 2-hr minimum, or $49–$85 each repair when bundled with other services.
Save electricity and time!
Dryer vents are the leading cause of house fires in the United States, and it is recommended that they be cleaned yearly or even every 6 months depending on usage. Dryer vent cleaning also improves the efficiency of your dryer (usually by 5 to 20 minutes a load). First-floor dryer vent cleaning is usually $125/vent or $98 when bundled with other services. 2nd- and 3rd-floor dryer vents come with an additional charge (usually $129–$149). Rooftop dryer vents are usually $179–$199. If the dryer and dryer vent are on your structure’s sidewall or directly above to the roof then we can usually access it. We can get up to 3 stories if it isn’t more than 30 or 33 ft from the ground. The distance between the dryer and exterior vent should be no more than 10–12 feet and with only one or two 90° turns. A regular cleaning may even lengthen the life of your dryer. You may also find laundry loads are done in just one cycle.
In total, clothes dryer fires account for about 15,600 structure fires, 15 deaths, and 400 injuries annually.
“Failure to clean” is the leading factor contributing to clothes dryer fires in residential buildings.
** Dryer must be functional because an air current is needed to purge the vent line.
** If the venting hose is under the house, daisy-chained beyond two 90º turns, has come apart in the wall, you may need to call the installer or a construction repair service company to do this work.
