The Truth About Washing Your Home
Because of the term “Pressure Washing” is used in general to describe washing your home or decking there is a certain warranted anxiety among some about having their homes exteriors, decks, or roof washed. The thinking is that when done, shingles or siding will be damaged or missing, water will rush inside the home, decks will be damaged, etc.
Mildew Busters Inc. was the first company on the East End to develop a non toxic citrus mildicide which first kills the spores of mildew or mold. It also will not damage plantings, animals or people. We then wash the house/decks/roofs off using very LOW pressure and eliminating any risk of damage to your home. With the mold and mildew gone your home looks brand new and removing the mildew and mold will prolong the life of your shingles and roof by many years.
We use “GREEN” products
Mildew Busters will begin by doing a thorough inspection of your home to identify areas where mold and mildew may be present, and where conditions may contribute to its growth.
Mildew Busters will then employ mold and moisture remediation solutions to eliminate any existing mold and mildew, and to prevent a recurrence of this hazard in your home in the future.
In order to stop mold and damaging moisture in your basement, the walks and floor need to be waterproofed. Mildew Busters Inc. does this by applying a waterproofing sealer with stucco like surface to the walls and an epoxy based paint to the floors. This stops the ability of moisture from entering your basement and home, eliminating any health risks to you and your family.
Siding Cleaning & Restoration
If your home’s siding does not receive any maintenance, it may only last 10 years or more, depending on the severity of the elements. On the other hand, proper maintenance and preservation techniques will insure a much longer and less expensive alternative.
Teak Furniture Cleaning
Mildew Busters has developed an effective system to first clean your teak furniture safely, without damaging it and then using Tung oil sealers to restore it’s appearance to that “new” look while protecting it from the elements.

Brick & Stucco
Using our environmentally friendly mildicides, Mildew Busters can first kill the mildew and mold growing on the brick and then powerwash it off. Then after drying, we can apply a clear silicone based masonry sealer that will preserve the integrity of the brick surface and eliminate costly repairs or replacements down the road.
For stucco we again use our non toxic mildicides that will remove the mildew and mold easily and then powerwash or rinse the surface before patching the stucco.
