As a Realtor, I understand the importance of having a clean looking home when you are ready to sell it. Josh always does great work with every house he cleans and makes sure the customer is satisfied every time. Josh's services help me to better market the properties, and that's worth way more than the cost for his services. If you are looking for an affordable, quality house-cleaning or roof cleaning, you're in the right place! Also check out their concrete cleaning...blew my mind!

Josh cleaned the back fence and our LP tank at our church which was way overdue. It now looks awesome! He is very personable and gets the job well done. Would highly recommend.

Professional team and easy to work with! They listen to what you want and then give you options to get that accomplished. I like their estimate as it itemizes services so that you can see what each different service costs. We did a holiday light install. They did a beautiful job. The best thing was that they came back and removed everything and we didn't have to! Now we have an estimate for house cleaning, which will be done as soon as the weather and their schedule allow. Great, professional folks who value a job done right. Give them a try!

We had our deck, playground, and picnic table washed and it looks and feels like we got completely new everything. The difference is night and day. Quick, friendly, and efficient.

Mom plus- My kids watched as the super water guns went to town on our deck. They were entertained all morning and I drank my coffee in peace. WIN.

Thanks so much!

FAMILY-OWNED

WITH STRONG LOCAL ROOTS

Judge Services is a family-owned and operated business located in Carbondale, IL. Judge Services specializes in Exterior Cleaning & Holiday Lighting. Founded in 2014, our focus has always been to treat every customer like they are family and care for every home like it is our own.

family-photo-judge-services

My better half, Melissa, is a Special Ed Administrator for Tri-County Education. Our son, Jack, just turned three in January and his little brother, Silas, joined our family on July 7th, 2019.

 

In 2014 I decided to follow in the footsteps of my grandfather, Don Judge. He started his own service business when he was 35 years old. “Judge Antennae & Alarms”, in Olney, IL, was the area’s household name for antennae and alarm installation. I’ll never forget when he told me that he “hadn’t worked a day since he was 35”. This is a man that would climb 50-100 foot antennae towers on a daily basis to solve his customer’s problems with their TV reception. He loved his small service business so much, that it never felt like work to him.

 

I, too, love what I do. Providing these services to my community, meeting new people and developing life-long relationships with my customers give me a great deal of pride. Thank you for considering Judge Services. I look forward to meeting you and caring for your home like it is my own.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be home while you work or for an estimate?

You do not need to be home for an estimate or for us to complete the work. We will get everything cleaned up exactly like we said we would. We will send you a text message when we are on the way to your project and when we’re finished. Knowing when someone is on your property, especially when you’re not home, gives you peace of mind and that makes us happy!

How can I pay you?

We accept personal check, cash and all major credit cards. Payment is due upon completion of the work. So, if you won’t be home, just let us know and we can email you the invoice. This makes it easy and simple for you to pay online.

How should we prepare for our cleaning?

While you do not need to be present for us to do the cleaning, we do ask that you go through this checklist before we arrive.

  • Close Windows and Doors
  • Please have your vehicles parked away from the areas to be cleaned (20-30' from the house). The end of the driveway or in the street is fine.
  • Pick up doggy-doo if possible.
  • Keep children and pets indoors during the duration of our cleaning
  • Unlock any backyard gates.
  • If possible, remove any flags, doormats, cushions, bird feeders, hanging plants, etc. that you'd prefer to move and place them indoors or in the garage. We can move most items and place them on the lawn while we clean and replace them afterwards.
  • Make sure your outside water source is on.
  • Let us know if there is a water source that we should not use.
  • If you’re not able to be home for the job, please leave a check in a privately disclosed location.
  • Let us know if there are any areas of concern. (Leaky problems areas, a window that doesn’t seal well, etc.).
  • If you're concerned about door seals, you can place a towel on the inside of any exterior doors.

Do you work in the rain?

Yes, we can work in the rain! It can be quite nice to let Mother Nature help us rinse! If it is storming too hard we may have to postpone or reschedule.

Do you work weekends?

We try to reserve our weekends for family time and relaxation. However, sometimes we have to work around the business hours of our valued clients.

Will you let me know when you're on your way?

We know you’re busy and you don’t have time to sit around your house in the middle of the day while we do our work. That’s no problem! Most of the time, our customers are either at work or away from home while we make their property shine. This is why we send you text notifications when we are “On our way” to your job and another text when “We are all finished up!”. This way you know when someone is on your property, even when you’re not.

Are you insured?

Great question! Yes, we are fully insured with Worker’s Compensation and $2 Million in Commercial Liability.

How long have you been in business?

Judge Services started in 2014 as a Painting and Pressure Washing company. In 2018 we began focusing on Exterior Cleaning.

What are those black streaks on my roof?

Those streaks are actually a living bacteria called “Gleocapsa Magma”. Often referred to as “Black Algae”, this bacteria spreads by air and the critters that run across your roof.

Will pressure washing damage my roof?

Yes! It will damage it and void your warranty! This is why we never use high pressure for roof cleaning. We use a method called Soft Washing which is not only safe for your shingles, it is the cleaning method recommended by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association.

Why does the “green” always grow on the North side?

Algae, moss, mold and pretty much any other organic growth love to hang out in cool, damp areas. The north side of a building provides an abundance of shade and moisture. That’s why the “green” is always more prominent on the north side of your house.

Will pressure washing damage my house?

Using high pressure to clean your home can absolutely cause damage. Siding can be broken, windows can be cracked and water can be pushed into places you don’t want it to go. Which is why we also Soft Wash all siding, windows and other common home surfaces.

What is Soft Washing?

Soft Washing is a cleaning process that utilizes low pressure to deliver a customized cleaning solution, specially blended to meet the demands of each project. It differs from pressure washing in that the cleaning solution is applied at low pressure which will not harm or damage painted surfaces, shingles, wood, or vinyl siding.

The power of chemistry is what makes our Soft Wash process so effective. Different surfaces and different contaminants require different levels of “soft washing”. With each cleaning job we perform, our cleaning solution is custom mixed on-site and applied. We do not have a “one size fits all” approach to cleaning. We will customize a cleaning plan to maximize effectiveness while also keeping your cost as low as possible!

Some surfaces will require pressure to get the maximum “clean” effect. When this is the case, we are fully equipped with the latest in today’s pressure washing technology as well!

Is your soap safe for plants and animals?

Yes, our soaps are eco-friendly and biodegradable. However, they could cause damage if they were used by someone without the proper training or experience. We are certified in Plant and Property Protection and we work around beautiful landscaping every day! We always go above and beyond to make sure your plants are happy and healthy.

Do you work in the winter?

We tend to get some warm days scattered throughout our winter and this allows us to clean 12 months out of the year!
