FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
To get pure water you need to use a multi-stage purification system. Ned Stevens incorporates a 3-stage system for each cleaning.
- Carbon Sediment Filter: Prevents material and debris from entering the RO membrane, as well as chlorine.
- RO Membrane: This part does all the heavy work in the purification process, removing up to 90-95% of all Total Dissolved Solids.
- Deionization Resin: The final filtration step, designed to bring your water to 0 TDS.
You can pressure wash some patios, but only if you proceed with caution. If you use the wrong nozzle or set the pressure too high, visible damage can be caused. From pitting to lines to degrading the surface, many are surprised to see how damaging pressure washes can be on a patio. Plus, if your patio is made up of paving stones held together with mortar, a pressure wash can completely disperse the joint sand and the mortar altogether.
Yes! Under certain circumstances, including lack of available water and customer request, we will perform a “dry cleaning.” We will only perform a dry cleaning where we can ensure that the gutters and leaders are free from clogs. If we perform a “dry cleaning”, the service carries the same guarantee as a cleaning with water.

We do not recommend screening or gutter guards. Ned Stevens has searched for and experimented with all types of products that claim to prevent gutter clogs for over 50 years. In short, we’ve found that there’s no such thing as a “no clog” gutter.
We do sell and install gutter screens, but we stopped selling a top-of-the-line solid cover gutter guard. These systems allow debris in the gutters, they allow the water to pour off the top of gutters in heavy rain (which could lead to water in your basement), and they allow clogs. The screens we sell will keep out big debris, but let a significant amount of small debris into the gutters. This debris will cause clogs over time, and can even grow plants in the gutters. As such, even with screens, gutters need to be cleaned regularly.
The solution for gutter clogs is simple: clean the gutters on a regular schedule. You can do this by signing up for one of our ongoing service plans, and you won’t worry about your gutters again.
Yes, we guarantee every gutter cleaning we perform. Because of the amount of debris that falls every single day, and the small amount of debris required to clog gutters, gutters can clog at any time. However, we guarantee that your entire system will be cleaned and flow freely through the next rainstorm following your service.
Pressure washing a deck not only poses a risk to the deck itself, but also doesn’t fix the underlying problem. Timber deck boards can splinter and take damage when put under the strain of a pressure washer. The reason a deck needs a wash is because of bacteria that causes discoloration. Pressure washing does not kill germs, so it’s only a short-term solution (assuming your deck doesn’t sustain damage).
Yes, however, opposed to a power wash using intense water pressure that may damage your walkway, a soft wash uses a biodegradable cleaning solution.
