If you're a property manager or business owner looking for relief, your property is in good hands with Tidal South Pressure Washing. Some of the most common pressure washing options we offer to commercial customers include:
Having served apartment complex owners for years, we step in when you need us the most. Some of our apartment and condo pressure washing services include:
Our highly-effective pressure washing services for apartments cleans oil, gum, grease, grime, dirt, and just about everything else. We can also pressure wash your community's sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, and much more.
Our washing methods help remove mildew, mold, dirt, and stains in a safe manner for your buildings and tenants. By cleaning the exterior of your apartment building, you can boost curb appeal, maintain siding quality, and protect your tenants' health.
We use safe washing tactics to clean the roofs in your apartment community. This process protects your shingles and eliminates those ugly black streaks that ruin your shingles.
Why let your walkways, parking lots, gutters, and siding accrue dirt, grime, mold, and algae? When residents and guests complain about how dirty their apartment community is, you must act quickly. Tidal South Pressure Washing is here to serve you with streamlined, efficient pressure washing services that keep tenants happy.
Here are just a few surprising benefits of apartment complex pressure washing:
If you want to attract new residents to your apartment complex, make a great first impression. One of the best ways to do that is with professional pressure washing. As an owner or landlord, you need to show future residents how beautiful their soon-to-be community is. That's true even if you're not charging a lot for rent. Nobody wants to live in a filthy-looking apartment complex.
As a property manager or landlord, you must abide by your tenant's rights. You have to provide them with a habitable place to live. As such, you must keep your apartment complex clean and free of health hazards like mildew and mold. To avoid liability and litigious action, include pressure washing from Tidal South on your maintenance checklist.
Even the most well-built apartment buildings will suffer from wear and tear with time. Exposure to the elements, especially in areas with a lot of rain and snow, may cause your complex to degrade. When pollutants fester, it accelerates that degradation. By getting rid of those pollutants with pressure washing, you can extend your property's lifespan.
Though Tidal South Pressure leads the field in commercial pressure washing, we're also proud to offer premium pressure washing for homeowners too.
As one of the premier home power washing companies in metro SC, we're passionate about restoring the outside appearance of homes. We guarantee your satisfaction by using the highest-quality power washing tools and proven techniques to clean your home. Whether you're trying to sell your house or just need to update its look, we're here to help. Give us a call today to learn more about the Tidal South difference.
Some of the most popular residential pressure washing services we offer include:
A lot of homeowners believe they can spray down their home with a hose and get the same effects as pressure washing. While DIY cleaning methods are great for minor issues, residential pressure washing is much more comprehensive and effective. It's about more than removing a little dirt from your siding or your gutters.
Here are a few of the most common benefits homeowners enjoy when they use Tidal South for their pressure washing:
So you've got mold or moss growing on your home's exteriors. What's the big deal? As it turns out, grime, moss, dirt, and other built-up substances can cause corrosion, running your home's exterior surfaces. When left unaddressed, that corrosion can seep into the materials under your concrete sealant or paint, like the wood on your deck. Substances like dirt also tend to accumulate in the small crevices that every home has. Out of reach of the wind and rain, this type of grime can add up for years until it becomes a bacterial breeding ground. Tidal South's residential pressure washing removes dirt, grime, and mold while hitting those impossible-to-reach crevices that damage your home.
When you think about all the damage that pressure washing prevents, it makes sense that you'll be saving money when you hire Tidal South. Having your home pressure washed regularly is usually less expensive than the repairs you'll need to pay for if you were to avoid keeping your property clean.
As you probably know, you can't paint over a dirty surface. If you're thinking about applying a new coat of paint to your home or even adding a deck or new room, pressure wash first. Pressurized washing helps clean your surfaces and can remove peeling paint and other defects that may affect the surface you're working on.
Keeping your home or business looking its best is a great feeling. But pressure washing goes beyond aesthetics. It protects your property from unnecessary damage, keeps your family or employees happy and safe, and even saves money, time, and stress.
Remember - a thorough pressure wash isn't an extravagance. It's a necessity. Let the friendly professionals at Tidal South Pressure Washing handle the hard work for you. Our goal is your 100% satisfaction, whether you're tending to your home or protecting your business.

Maybe it’s the cobblestone streets. Or the friendly locals. Or the incredible food, charming hotels, and endless water views.

Maybe it’s the cobblestone streets. Or the friendly locals. Or the incredible food, charming hotels, and endless water views. Whatever the reason, our readers continue to be utterly charmed by Charleston, South Carolina. In fact, it was just voted the best small city in the United States in our 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards.
Now in its 35th year, our annual Readers’ Choice Awards continues to capture the travel experiences our readers love best, from hotels and airlines to cruises and islands. The numbers prove what we already knew: Enthusiasm for travel has never been higher, as demonstrated by the nearly quarter of a million of you who filled out this year’s survey. The best cities in the world (large and small) are a testament to the staying power of perennial favorites, through thick and thin—with some newcomers to consider.
Charleston is no stranger to accolades. Our readers named it the best small city for an incredible 10 consecutive years until it was edged out by Aspen in 2021—not surprising, with most travelers seeking out wide open spaces during the pandemic. But the Holy City took back its crown this year, and everything feels relatively normal once again.
While there are clearly many reasons to love this Southern city, you really can’t talk about the destination without immediately calling out its dining scene. “Excellent restaurants” and “delicious food” were mentioned in countless survey responses, with particular attention paid to seafood, sweet tea, and hearty breakfasts.
The city excels at Southern cuisine, of course, but don’t sleep on Charleston’s more diverse dining options. Be sure to try the escargot at Maison, the tender agnolotti and veal scallopini at Wild Olive, the gazpacho at Malagón Mercado y Tapería, and the fried smelt with garlic skordalia sauce at Stella’s. We wouldn’t dare tell you to skip the Southern classics, though: If you’re lucky enough to find an empty parking spot at The Glass Onion, break any mild traffic laws to get it. The shrimp po’boys, fried grouper cheeks, and lemon meringue pie are the stuff of legends.
Luckily for any calorie counters out there, Charleston also boasts an extremely walkable downtown area and a plethora of outdoor activities. You can hop onboard one of the famous horse-drawn carriages (“carriage rides both day and evening are a must,” writes one reader), or take a self-guided walking tour past Waterfront Park, the live oaks at White Point Gardens, Legare’s gorgeous homes, and more.
There are many great beaches to choose from in the spring and summer, with “water as warm as a bath,” but we’re particular fans of the stretches of sand on Sullivan’s Island. These beaches are wide enough to fit the crowds, have gentle waves, and are surrounded by natural walking paths through lush vegetation. Get out on the water with a kayaking tour—one of Charleston’s trademark outdoor activities—and you might even spot a pair of surfacing dolphins or an elusive summer manatee.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WCHS) — The second annual Holly Jolly Brawley takes over downtown Charleston this weekend. While festivities start on Friday at noon, the area is already decked out for Christmas.
“One of my friends actually said to me, 'It kind of reminds me of Whoville, if Whoville was out of the television and movie screen and onto the streets of Charleston,'” Mayor Amy Goodwin said.
Summers Street, Capitol Street, and Lee Way are closed to traffic until Sunday for the festival set-up. However, parking is still available in the Summers Street parking garage
More than 100 trees line Slack Plaza and Brawley Walkway in preparation for holiday festivities this weekend. Local businesses decorated these trees for the public to vote on.
Meanwhile on Brawley Walkway, Shannon Larwa, owner of Shannon's Suite Salon, was out decorating her salon's tree Wednesday.
“This is a really special thing for me to be a part of. It makes my heart so happy to see Charleston alive and everybody happy,” she said.
Covering her tree with pictures of her clients, Larwa said people often sit in her chair and ask her to make them beautiful. This is her way of letting her clients know how beautiful they are.
"Every time they say that, I think to myself, I love your smile. I love your heart. I love your kindness. If you could see what I see what I see when I look at you, you wouldn't be in my chair, but I'm glad that you are," Larwa said.
Larwa said the location of her tree couldn't be more perfect, too.
“I will say that this brings a sentimental piece for myself because my mother was a hairdresser and she worked at a salon on this street that used to be Fife Street, and so for my tree to be right here and my mom is gone. It’s a special thing for me,” Larwa said.

Goodwin said the light shows and the live music is bigger this year than last, but it's that sentimental touch and togetherness that will make this event special for the community.
"Most important, it's about being together, and that's what we all want to do in the city of Charleston," she said.

A Charleston-area business is helping local restaurants divert waste from South Carolina landfills.
Though the process is fairly straightforward, less than 25 restaurants are utilizing the services of SMART Recycling, which also counts the Charleston County School District, Horry County Schools, University of South Carolina, College of Charleston, The Citadel and the city of Charleston among its nearly 60 member users.
Founded in 2014 by Gary Bilbro, SMART Recycling collects food waste from its clients and delivers it to a composting facility in the three areas the company serves: Charleston, Columbia and Horry County.
Charleston restaurants using the 8-year-old company — Husk, Obstinate Daughter and Melfi’s, among others — are making a difference.
Bohemian Bull owner Chad Biel said SMART Recycling helps his James Island bar and restaurant divert about 2 tons of waste from the landfill every month.
“We really did it because it felt like it was the right thing to do,” Biel said. “Understanding what food waste does in a landfill is a big piece of it.”
Food waste is the largest category of material that ends up in municipal landfills, according to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency. Once in the landfill, it emits methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. Municipal solid waste landfills are the third-largest source of human-related methane emissions in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
“When food waste is buried like that, it doesn’t have access to oxygen,” said SMART Recycling accounting manager Meghan McGill. “And when it doesn’t have access to oxygen, it just rots.”
Composting facilities break down the waste organically, producing a nutrient-rich soil supplement, McGill said.
“It creates this environment where the healthy bacteria can break that down and turn it into compost,” she said.
SMART is an acronym for Specialized, Measurable, Adaptable, Realistic and Timely. Before working with a restaurant or organization, SMART Recycling conducts a site assessment, decides the number of bins needed and trains the organization’s employees along the way.
The for-profit company supplies 64-gallon carts to restaurants, picking them up and hauling to the nearest composting facility. After they are emptied, the carts are pressure-washed and returned to the restaurant.
The service starts at $125 per month.
“It is a cost, so ideally they’re caring about the environment. A lot of the fine-dining restaurants, they have a larger profit margin for this type of thing,” McGill said. “We certainly want to see it grow.”
SMART Recycling has saved Bohemian Bull money, according to Biel, by allowing him to scale back his garbage pickup service.
Biel estimates he was spending $400 to $500 per month on garbage pickup before teaming up with SMART Recycling seven years ago.
The $200 a month SMART Recycling now costs him is offset by cutting in half the cost of his garbage services.
Biel is preparing to franchise Bohemian Bull, with plans to add locations in Mount Pleasant, Greenville, Dallas and Jacksonville, Fla. He plans to utilize SMART Recycling at the South Carolina locations, but Biel will have to find an alternative in other states where the company focuses its operations.
