HOA Property Maintenance
Home Owner’s Associations have a lot on their plate. One of the obvious goals of an HOA is to keep the area in good shape to maintain the property value and curb appeal for the owners.
The problem is: getting various services done can be time consuming and intimidating. Getting various quotes, researching all of the companies, scheduling timelines, etc. You might hire a window cleaner to clean all of the areas, and then a pressure washer comes the next day and the windows are dirty all over again. Not efficient.
That’s where we come in! Our goal is to make things easier for HOA boards in east Alabama. You simply need to find one good exterior cleaning company (that would be us, ideally) and one good landscaping company. That will cover all of your bases. Again: we can do almost everything… except landscaping.

A Comprehensive List of Our Services
For our HOA customers, we provide the widest array of cleaning so that you don’t have to find, research, and hire multiple companies for each service.
Below is a list of all the services that we offer to HOAs in Auburn, Opelika, and the Lake Martin area.
Home owners typically are not going to get out ladders and clean the upper-level exterior windows of their homes. Many aren’t going to clean the bottom-level ones, either. A professional window cleaning will ensure that your expensive-to-replace windows last as long as possible. Plus, we use pure water-fed-poles instead of ladders, therefore eliminating the possibility of damage to the property from ladders. There are numerous other benefits of clean windows that you can read about here.
Please note for the sake of efficiency and to ensure we clean all windows, we ask that all screens are taken out before our window cleaning. We will gladly clean all screens before returning them back to the homeowners. If any homeowners have a difficult time removing their screens, we will happily help.
Our window cleaning equipment cleans the frames and sills, not just the glass!
Roofs are typically one of the most expensive replacements for HOAs. One of the most costly mistakes is replacing a roof, when a roof CLEANING would have been just as good at a fraction of the price. We simply spray a thin layer of our roof washing mix with very low pressure, let it dwell, and rinse it off to reveal shingles that look new again! Don’t you dare hire a cleaner that is going to power/pressure wash your roofs, as this leads to damage and a terrible appearance afterwards. You can learn more about our roof cleaning service here.
House Washing (AKA Soft Washing)
Our house washing service has exploded in popularity in the last few months. Similar to our roof cleaning service, our house washing service uses low-pressure and a larger focus on the right concentration of solutions to kill algae and mold. You’ll be shocked at how easily our mix can restore your siding. If you are interested in our house washing service, check out this article.
Pressure washing is a service that is FAR overused in our industry. We only pressure wash concrete, bricks, and some decks depending on the goal. The most common use of our pressure washing service for HOA customers is driveway, sidewalk, and patio cleaning. Keep in mind that all homeowners will have to move their cars off of the concrete for us to properly pressure wash larger areas. Check out this article if you’d like to know more about when we pressure wash and when we soft wash.
Clean gutters that flow properly are imperative to avoid costly foundation repairs. Many companies use ladders (which is far more likely to lead to damage) or pressure washers (which is far more likely to lead to a wet mess all around your property). At The Clear Difference, we use long poles and powerful vacuums to suck up all of the debris. This leaves a clean property and gutters that properly lead water away from the property’s foundation.
Soffit and Fascia Cleaning
It truly is the small details that make the difference. Soffits and fascias are notorious for 1) getting dirty easily and 2) being difficult to clean. It often takes a couple different applications of the correct solutions to truly make them shine. Plus, we have found the best way to clean them is using long poles and brushes, which can be a tiring shoulder workout.
While we clean soffits and fascias, we also clean the exterior of the gutters, which often goes uncleaned and left with nasty black streaks. We also call this service “gutter brightening”, and wrote a more in-depth article about it here.
