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.

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.

Lush landscapes and year-round outdoor weather makes Daniel Island the right recipe for picturesque picnics.

Lush landscapes and year-round outdoor weather makes Daniel Island the right recipe for picturesque picnics. When twin sisters Nicole Kunz and Kristin Socci moved to Daniel Island over a year ago, they both knew it was the perfect place to open Southern Bubbles LLC, a luxury picnic business.
“The community is full of fun-loving, happy, outdoorsy people who have welcomed us into their community. The island itself is full of beautiful parks and back yards, perfect for picnics,” Kunz said.
Southern Bubbles officially opened last month, with a launch party at DI’s Smythe Park. The concept evolved after a friend visiting from New York suggested luxury picnics would be a great business for the growing area.
“With COVID, a new category of entertainment had arisen, providing people with an option to dine outdoors with others in parks, beaches and their own backyards, while keeping safe,” Kunz said. “… As South Carolina is warm most months of the year, it makes for the perfect place to start a luxury picnic company.”
Both sisters bring a lot of experience to the table. “Southern Bubbles was started with the idea of pulling together all our creative talents, and life experiences to share a little bit of us with the Lowcountry,” Socci said.
Kunz had a successful career in marketing and public relations when she lived in New York. After taking time out to start a family she eventually opened a photography business.
Socci had a career in the New York fashion industry before moving with her family to Germany and later Japan, where she owned a baking company. During her travels she collected exotic items, such as antique dinner plates from Japan, a Buddha head from Bali, and platters from Cambodia. Many of these will be part of Southern Bubble’s décor.
Kunz’s photography services and Socci’s tasty treats can be added to any picnic package. A Southern Bubbles picnic lasts two hours and includes everything from decorations, table set up, charcuterie to a teepee tent. Additional add ons, like an extended food menu are available for purchase.
Daniel Island’s Cycle House owner Brynn Fields was the first customer and she had no reservations about being the first reservation. “Nicole and Kristin are members of Cycle House, and we were chatting before class about a new luxury picnic business they were starting. I love picnics and this was mine and my husband’s first date, so I went right to the website!”
Fields booked the Romantic Picnic Package and was thrilled with her intimate picnic. “Everything from their attention to detail on the table to the location on Smythe Lake they picked, was perfect. I love that these picnics come with everything. Charcuterie, water, table settings, flowers and even a Bluetooth speaker so you can listen to some music. It’s not that often we get to relax… We will definitely do this again either by ourselves or with friends!”
The two sisters hope to collaborate with other local businesses.
“We would love to keep Southern Bubbles local to Daniel Island. We want to cater food from local businesses and use add ons from local businesses like balloon artist @flairchs,” Kunz stated.

An abrupt turn of events at Berkeley County School District’s school board meeting on Nov. 15 resulted in the surprise firing of the superintendent and in-house legal counsel followed by the hiring of a new superintendent and legal counsel.
The turbulent mid-year transition came in two separate motions to fire superintendent Deon Jackson along with in-house general counsel Dr. Tiffany Richardson. Both motions passed by a vote of 6-3, with much anger and disgust from dissenting board members and members of the community in attendance who chanted phrases such as “unjust” and “no process.”
Jackson was hired in July 2021 as the first Black superintendent in BCSD’s history. He worked in the district for more than a decade, including as the first principal of Cane Bay Middle School. Richardson, a graduate of Stratford High School, was hired in April 2021.
The votes in favor to fire Jackson and Richardson included: board chair Mac McQuillin, vice chair Sally Ballentine Wofford, secretary Michael Ramsey, Joe Baker, Kathy Littleton and Jimmy Hinson. The board members who opposed the firings were David Barrow, Yvonne Bradley and Crystal Wigfall.
Both Richardson and Jackson excused themselves from the meeting without comment. Board members Bradley and Wigfall followed suit and dismissed themselves before the end of discussion. Citizens in attendance joined them to form a mass exodus.
“The board policy needs to be revised, amended to give reason why you’re terminating someone,” Bradley said. “… How in the world can you terminate somebody without giving a reason.”
Jackson has been replaced by Dr. Anthony Dixon, Charleston County School District chief of schools and former BCSD chief academics and innovation officer and chief administrative officer. Dixon was a semifinalist for the superintendent position that Jackson was ultimately appointed to last spring. He formerly served as principal for Philip Simmons High School, Philip Simmons Middle School and Cainhoy Elementary School. As well as assistant principal at Daniel Island School.
Richardson was replaced by Brandon Gaskins, an employee of Moore & Van Allen law firm. Gaskins previously served as deputy chief counsel to former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford.
The motion to terminate Richardson was made by Littleton. The motion to terminate Jackson was introduced by McQuillin, the Daniel Island and Philip Simmons representative of District 2. The board did not specify the rationale for Jackson’s firing. He earned a proficient rating from his recent school board review.
When asked for the grounds for firing Jackson, McQuillin replied vaguely that it was a “personnel matter.” However, his colleague, Barrow, said that he was told that the cause stems from an “unconstitutional” and “unlawful” contractual matter.
When Jackson was hired as superintendent last year, he was given a multi-year contract with a provision that a supermajority must vote unilaterally to terminate him with “no cause” from his position as opposed to a simple majority. In this case meaning that six board members would have to terminate Jackson as opposed to five. This is exactly what happened at the board meeting.
Barrow cited an opinion from a local legal professional that said Jackson’s contract was not illegal. Andrea White from White & Story LLC informed Barrow that Jackson’s provision is common practice.
White, a member of the Richland County Bar and the South Carolina Bar, represents a number of school districts around the state. White practices in all areas of school law, with an emphasis on providing advice and counsel on issues relating to personnel matters and employment discrimination.
The question remains whether Jackson’s provision is a violation of state law. White noted that there haven’t been any cases in South Carolina circuit and appellate courts that address this issue.
Reached via email after the meeting, McQuillin added, “We understand that the public wants and deserves answers regarding Mr. Jackson’s termination, but the prospect of litigation and the fact that the termination involves personnel issues limits our ability to comment fully at this time. However, we expect to be able to share our rationale in the near future, and we are confident that we made a decision that is in the best interest of the district and its students.”
Barrow, who hired Jackson as an assistant principal at Timberland High School in 2006, called the termination a “political witch hunt,” a “travesty,” a “sham” and a “political hit job.” He questioned if there were any “clandestine meetings” among board members outside of executive session prior to the vote.
McQuillin said via email that “…there was no meeting prior to Tuesday’s Board meeting. Four board members were re-elected incumbents. On Thursday of last week, in accordance with Board policy, those board members requested that then Chair of the Board Dave Barrow add the personnel item to the agenda’s executive session. Prior to the meeting, Mr. Jackson and Dr. Dixon were notified of the agenda items. On Tuesday, the Board met as a whole, for the first time, to discuss the matters in executive session and returned to regular session to vote on the matters.”
The school board authorized Dixon to hire a deputy superintendent, chief academic officer and to restructure his cabinet without further board action.
Efforts to reach Jackson for comment were unsuccessful. Barrow said, when asked for help reaching Jackson, “He is not responding personally at this time.” Dixon did not respond to emailed questions prior to the paper going to print.
This is a developing story that will be updated as new information becomes available.

Bishop England High School girls’ basketball coach Paul Runey always looks for ways - and games - to get his teams ready for deep playoff runs.
That’s why the Bishops were more than willing participants in the Charleston Math and Science’s Riptide Tournament, which was contested over the weekend, tipping off the 2022-23 season.
“No doubt it’s good to get a couple of games under your belt,” said the veteran coach. “There’s always practice, but that only gets you so far. It’s always good to play someone wearing different uniforms.”
The Bishops seemed to be in postseason form, winning the tournament with victory over a pair of bigger schools. On Saturday, the Bishops posted a 31-25 victory over James Island and followed that up with a 31-26 victory over Lucy Beckham in the championship game.
“The girls played really hard, but we have a lot of work to do,” Runey said. “We have five players returning from last year, but only one starter. The five players combined to average something like only 17 points (a game). You know our forte: play pressure defense and turn turnovers into fastbreaks that result in layups and foul shots.”
That’s the formula that BE has used to become one of the state’s biggest basketball forces, winning six state titles in the 2010s. The Bishops claimed their first state title in 2012 and then won four in a row from 2014-17. The Bishops’ other title came in ’19.
The defensive pressure was the difference against the Bengals from Mount Pleasant. Lucy Beckham led 21-12 at halftime, but the Bishops pitched a shutout in the third period to cut the deficit to 21-18. The Bishops’ offense responded in the final eight minutes, outscoring the Bengals 13-5 to start the season with a 2-0 record. Izzy Woods led the win with nine points. She had 14 points the day before in the victory over James Island.
“This team is revamped,” Runey said. “The girls have to play hard. This just might be the smallest team I’ve ever had. But they are pretty quick and I think they will come around offensively. The key is to be more consistent, and if we can do that and stay out of foul trouble, we will be OK.”
The Bishop England and Philip Simmons High School boys’ teams also competed in the Riptide Classic. The Bishops beat the Iron Horses 50-42 Sunday to claim third place.
The Iron Horses took a 15-11 lead at the end of the first stop but the Bishops rallied to tie it 21-21 at halftime. The Bishops exploded for 22 points in the decisive third quarter to take a 43-25 lead into the final stanza.
Jack Raup led the Bishops with 12 points and Charlie Ranney chipped in with 10. Jac’Que Green of PSHS led all scorers with 15.
The Iron Horses topped Porter-Gaud in the opening game but fell to Goose Creek and BE to start the season 1-2.
Bishop England played two games in the tourney, losing to Goose Creek in the opening round.
