Roof Cleaning

Black roof stains are caused by airborne algae. The stains will not go away over time, they will darken and spread. Roof stains can be removed with our unique, no-pressure washing process. Our non-caustic cleaner is environmentally friendly and gently dissolves away stains, grime and layers of seasonal pollen. Prices are reasonable starting at 15 cents per square foot of area cleaned. Our process can also remove green algae stains on your house siding! Call or email us today for a free estimate!

Soft Wash and Pressure Washing

Does your deck or patio look dull? Is there green algae, dirt or stains making it look old and worn out? IDW uses both Soft Wash and high pressure water delivery depending on the areas being cleaned. Soft Wash uses very low pressure to apply environmentally friendly cleaning solutions to your home which remove mold, mildew, algae, moss and other contaminants. It’s a completely safe and inexpensive way to restore the curb appeal of your home and maximize your property value. We can clean concrete surfaces such as walkways, sidewalks and driveways. Pavers, brick, siding, and gutter fronts often need dirt or algae stains removed and IDW can make them all look like new again.

IDW also provides pressure washing services on commercial buildings and works with building managers or janitorial companies to improve the exterior quality of the building.

Our Story

The year was 1992. Keith Kroehler and his wife, Lisa, moved from Minnesota to her hometown of Lima, Ohio. Keith had started a window cleaning company in Minnesota in the late 1980s where he was born and raised in the agricultural industry. But they decided to move closer to Lisa’s family and to a climate that was a little warmer in the winter. Keith worked alone until 1996 when Lisa left her career in television journalism/ marketing and joined her husband in expanding I DO WINDOWS! LLC. After many years of hard work, the company now employs several window cleaners and services clients across Ohio and the greater Fort Wayne area. In 2006, IDW was honored by the Lima/Allen County Chamber of Commerce as “Woman Owned Business of the Year.”
