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.

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.

A new retail destination with a larger Harris Teeter supermarket to serve residents of Kiawah, Seabrook and Johns islands is one step closer to becoming a reality.
The Charleston County Planning Commission voted 7-1 on Aug. 14 to recommend a land-use change from low-density residential to a planned development district for about 50 acres in the Andell West tract next to the Freshfields Village Shopping Center.
The proposal failed to move forward last October when the panel deadlocked 4-4 after questions were raised about the connectivity to Freshfields, the placement of the connections and the architectural blending of the new retail site with businesses in the neighboring center.
Freshfields is owned by Columbia-based Edens. It paid nearly $125 million for the property last year.
The new plan for the project off Kiawah Island Parkway clarifies the points of connection between the two retail sites, puts a 100-foot vegetated buffer between the road and the development and sets aside 20 percent of the land as open space.
Plans call for the existing Harris Teeter supermarket at Freshfields to move to the new location in a larger building of up to 65,000 square feet, according to Chris Corrada, a principal with the development firm Riverstone Properties LLC of Richmond, Va., which owns the 50-acre parcel.
The North Carolina-based grocer also would operate a gas station with seven fuel pumps on the site. A Harris Teeter representative did not immediately respond for comment.
The new retail center would measure about 160,000 square feet, including the grocery store. No other tenants have been lined up yet, and it could be several years before the entire project is completed, Corrada said.
A representative of Edens did not immediately respond for comment on its plans to backfill the grocery store site once it relocates, but Corrada noted the new supermarket probably won’t materialize until 2027 since the project still has hurdles to clear.
They include a public hearing on Sept. 12 and subsequent approvals by a County Council committee and the full council.
After that, the developer would initiate architectural plans and prepare the property, which has been used for parking during the two PGA Championships at the Ocean Course on Kiawah in 2012 and 2021.
Industrial and residential uses are not planned for the property, and the development would allow drive-thrus for a business such as a pharmacy, but not fast-food restaurants.
Several residents told the Planning Commission they favored the project. No one spoke against it.
Warren Lasch, president of Cassique Homeowners Association on Kiawah, had concerns about the proposed development last year. He said he supports the revised plan, saying it no longer appeared as a competing retail site with Freshfields.
“It will be a seamless experience,” he said. “It will complement the existing charm and appeal of Freshfields Village.”
The town of Kiawah Island, which includes the neighboring Freshfields Village and the parkway, also is in favor of the new venture.
“We extend our support for this venture and believe it will positively impact Kiawah and its community members,” Mayor John Labriola wrote in a letter to the county.
A public hearing on the project is set for Sept. 12.

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (WCBD)- The Kiawah Island Community Association (KICA) teamed up with biologists to conduct their annual alligator count last week.
Town biologists reported counting 146 alligators on July 18 and 143 alligators on July 19 across the island.
“We’ve been doing these surveys every year since 2003,” Kiawah Island wildlife biologist Jim Jordan said. “And we’ve seen some ups and downs like you would expect, but overall the population has remained stable.”
The route, which covers 48 ponds and approximately 153 acres of water, is surveyed twice in order to ensure the most accurate count possible.
“We actually, we reverse it the second night, so we start at the endpoint just to try to take out some potential variability,” Jordan said.
Biologists use the count to determine the estimated density of alligators on the island, which is reported as the number of reptiles per 100 acres of water. It also is used to help determine the population size on the island, which the town estimates is between 600 and 700 alligators.
“The best use of the data is to look at trends over time and you know, again, particularly with density, but also with kind of a breakdown of size classes,” Jordan said. “So we tend to kind of look at it over a long period of time, looking for any significant upward or downward trends.”
Data shows that alligator density on Kiawah Island has remained relatively stable over the past two decades despite some fluctuations in the count. In 2003, density was reported as 134, while this year it was reported as 249.
A number of factors can contribute to the slight fluctuation, according to Jordan, including how active the alligators are at night and whether or not they are visible in a given location.
“Alligator populations typically do, you know, remain stable once they get to what we call carrying capacity,” Jordan explained. “So when there are as many alligators out there as the habitat can support, the numbers tend to remain pretty stable.”
As the team moves along the route, they also keep track of the relative size of each alligator that is counted. If an exact size cannot be determined, the animals are categorized as “unknowns” either under or over six feet in length.
“As a rule, probably 70 to 75% of the alligators that we see on the survey and are able to put into a size class are under six feet,” Jordan explained. “So most of these alligators are very small juveniles and a lot of them probably won’t make it to adulthood and that’s pretty typical for an alligator population.”
Determining the relative size of the alligators is also useful in helping biologists to track shifts in population size and density on the island, according to Jordan.
“Typically, when we see a little bit of a spike in numbers, it probably has to do with just a year where reproduction was really good and so we’ve got a lot of smaller alligators out there,” he said.
As for large alligators, which are generally considered over eight feet in length, only five were counted during the two-day survey period.
But, whether large or small, there are a few key points people should keep in mind if they encounter an alligator while living or vacationing on the island.
The town encourages people to stay at least 60 feet away from alligators whenever possible, do not swim in a body of water other than the ocean, and keep pets away from water.
“Alligators are, you know, they’re a large predator and they need to be treated with respect,” Jordan said.

South Carolina has 35 barrier islands (also called sea islands,) more than any other state except Florida. Barrier islands run parallel to the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts and shield the mainland from the brunt of sea storms. The islands are home to wide sandy beaches, sea grass beds, vegetated uplands, and Lowcountry marshes.
At 84 square miles in area, St. Johns is the largest Island in South Carolina. Located in Charleston County, it’s the fourth largest island on the East Coast. Situated between the city of Charleston and the barrier island beaches that border the Atlantic Coast, a portion of the island is located within the city limits of Charleston.
Technically an island, yet not bordered by the open sea, the Stono and Kiawah Rivers are what separates Johns Island from its border islands and the mainland.
Colonialists arrived on Johns Island from English settlements in the Caribbean and named it after Saint John Parish in Barbados. However, Native American tribes, including the Stono, Bohicket, and Kiawah Indians, were already living on the island.
The settlers brought the crop, indigo, from Barbados and cultivated it in the Lowcountry of Johns Island. By the mid-1700s, indigo became the main export for the island. A popular bright blue dye, indigo grown on Johns Island was commonly sold to England. During the height of indigo production, the Stono Rebellion occurred. The settlers relied on slaves to grow and produce their crops. In 1739, a group of slaves on Johns Island rebelled and attempted to escape to Florida, which was under the rule of the Spanish at the time.
However, the uprising was unsuccessful and plantation owners captured the slaves before they could reach freedom. During the Revolutionary War, the British market for indigo was disrupted, and England began to turn to India for its indigo supply. By the 1800s, indigo was no longer listed as a crop for Johns Island.
Johns Island has been the site of several important historical events. Occupied by British troops during the Revolutionary War, Johns Island also endured the Battle of Bloody Bridge during the Civil War. Today, visitors can view the historical site marking the Civil War battle at the Burdens Causeway.
Currently, Johns Island has a population of 21,500 and growing. The nearness of downtown Charleston, the beautiful scenery of the Lowcountry, and the nearby sandy beaches of the barrier islands make Johns Island a popular spot for new development.
Today, Johns Island is known for local farmers’ markets, historical parks, and towering oak trees dripping with Spanish moss. Although new developments are cropping up on the island, about 75% of the island remains rural with agricultural and horse farms, large acreage estates, and waterfront communities. Just a few miles south is the resort community of Kiawah Island.
One of the main attractions on Johns Island is the Angel Oak, a live oak tree that is thought to be the largest living oak tree east of the Mississippi River. Estimated to be around 400 years old, it’s the oldest tree in South Carolina. The massive tree is 65 feet tall and 25.5 feet around. Further, it provides shade to a staggering 17,000 square foot area. Surrounding the tree is a small park with a visitor’s center and a gift shop.
Another popular activity on the island is shopping at the Freshfields Village, an open-air shopping center with over 30 shops, numerous restaurants, and a boutique hotel.
The Goatery at Kiawah River is a small artisan goat dairy farm specializing in goat cheese and soaps. The farm offers private tours, classes for children, and goat yoga. The farm also doubles as a goat sanctuary, offering many goats a forever home.
Johns Island is in between Charleston and the barrier islands. It’s surrounded by Kiawah, Seabrook, Wadmalaw, Edisto, James, and Folly Islands. The Stono and Kiawah Rivers separate Johns Island from the mainland and the barrier islands.
Johns Island is teeming with wildlife. Although there are many homes, shops, and restaurants on the island, much of the land remains undeveloped, providing habitat for numerous species. On the island, it’s common to see deer, raccoons, coyotes, bobcats, otters, wild hogs, and even alligators.
The rivers and marshes on the island are abundant with oysters, trout, black sea bass, bluefish, and bottlenose dolphins. Birds found in the area include many species such as osprey, bald eagles, wild turkeys, and egrets.

One of South Carolina's favorite spots along the coast has been ranked among the top 10 beaches in the country.
Kiawah Island's Beachwalker Park in Charleston County is listed as No. 8 on the 2023 list of best U.S. beaches released this week by “Dr. Beach,” aka coastal scientist Stephen Leatherman.
(Above video is the Friday morning headlines.)
The pristine beach is on the west end of Kiawah Island, and gives visitors ocean and river views, according to the Charleston County Parks website.
Charleston County Parks
Beachwalker is also the only public beach access on Kiawah Island, which is a 45-minute drive south of Charleston between Folly and Edisto beaches.
The park is operated through a cooperative agreement among Kiawah Development Partners, Charleston County Council, and the Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission.
North Carolina's Lighthouse Beach, in Buxton on the Outer Banks, came in at No. 5 on the list.
Located along Highway 12, Lighthouse Beach is about a six-hour drive from Myrtle Beach.
National Parks Service
Once the site of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, the beach is convenient and renowned for its good shelling and great waves, according to the National Parks Service.
Florida’s St. George Island State Park earned the top slot on the best beach list.
The barrier island park offers nine miles of pristine beaches along the Gulf Coast.
With nature trails for biking and hiking, plus birding, fishing, boating and camping, St. George offers excellent swimming and sunbathing and is also a prime spot for stargazing with limited light pollution, the list says.
Leatherman has been ranking America’s best beaches since 1991.
He uses 50 criteria to evaluate hundreds of public beaches in the United States. The criteria include beach width, sand softness, water temperature and color, wildlife and more.
Half of the top 10 beaches in the United States for 2023 are in Florida and Hawaii.
None of Florida’s Atlantic beaches appear in the 2023 top 10; Leatherman pointed out that the Atlantic coastline is being affected this year by sargassum seaweed.
