Pools, Decks, and Patios: Haven or Hazard?
Learn why the health and safety of your pool and pool apron is a serious matter.
Everyone looks forward to soaking in the summer sun and taking that first dip in the pool. The joy and serenity of the crisp, clean water eclipses our troubles, even if for just a moment. But unfortunately, that moment can quickly become tragic, which is why it is important to refresh safety protocols for the health of your family.
According to stopdrowningnow.com, “10 people die every day” from drowning, “3,400 people drown each year,” and is known as the “#1 leading cause of death in children ages 1-4.” Such tragic loss of life emphasizes why one can never take for granted the state of their pool and surround. It is recommended that in addition to adult supervision, swimming lessons, established safety protocols, and learning CPR are imperative for pool owners.
While there are various dangers associated with pools, everything from faulty ladders to dodgy electrics, poolwatermedic.com lists slip and fall hazards from slippery algae growth on pool surrounds as one of the top injurious offenders, even though it is completely preventable. They recommend that annual flat surface cleaning is essential for pool aprons, patios, decks, and any flat surface surrounding your pool. A closely related danger is water quality of your pool. Bacteria and chemicals can linger in your water if not properly maintained, leading to infections and skin issues.
The health and safety of your pool and surrounding flat surface have direct bearing on the health and safety of the people enjoying them. As summer heat and storms progress, your pool and patio will take a battering with debris and humidity-fostered biological danger (moss, mold, mildew, algae), creating more work for your pool filter. If you choose to try DIY to clean your flat surfaces, it is important to know and have the right tools, techniques, and solutions to properly handle the needs of your deck, patio, pavers, whatever your pool surround. This can be an expense of time, money, and learning curve, procuring all that is needed to safely clean the variety of issues on your flat surfaces.
A professional flat surface cleaning by a trained team of technicians with the tools and knowledge of how to treat various surfaces as well as the surfactants used to restore luster, while avoiding dirt and solutions leaking into your pool, will save you time and money. But how do you know which Flat Cleaning Service is right for you?
BASIC vs. DELUXE
A BASIC flat surface cleaning is performed using only water, and is ideal for those who schedule regular, annual maintenance. This service is also recommended for customers who may be sensitive to the idea of solutions used in the DELUXE service.
A DELUXE flat surface cleaning is ideal for customers who have stains or who have not been able to have a regular, annual maintenance cleaning. This service includes an ECO-wash, green-friendly, additional surfactant used for mold, mildew, moss, and algae growth, to destroy and remove anything biological growing in pores of the concrete which create a slippery surface and creates a more habitable environment for organisms to transfer and grow on your house. Lack of maintenance can also lead to breakdown, cracks, and degradation of the surface around the pool, also providing trip, fall, and splinter hazards.
