The fall brings millions of tourists to Johnson City, Kingsport, Bristol, and the charming small towns in between. As the leaves change and fall, our area begins preparing for winter. If you have been through a few winters here, you know how important it is to make sure your commercial property is ready for a long cold season. That includes making sure your property is thoroughly pressure washed. Here are five tips for making sure your business is clean and ready for winter.

One of the best things about living in the Tri-Cities area of Tennessee is Autumn. While the hills and mountains are beautiful throughout the year, for a few months of fall, usually after the first frost, they put on one of the best displays of color in the county. Millions of tourists visit our area to see the leaves change from green to brilliant red, orange, yellow, and even violet. Some of the favorite spots to visit in the fall include:

  • Beautiful Lake Watauga east of Elizabethton 
  • Buffalo Mountain in Johnson City
  • Roan Mountain State Park near the North Carolina 
  • Bays Mountain Park near Kingsport
  • The Appalachian Trail near Ewin
  • South Holston Lake near Bristol 

If you are a resident of the area, your favorite place might be your neighborhood park or your own backyard. While the colors of October and November are spectacular even until the final leaf falls, all of those leaves have to go somewhere. Often, the place they end up is in your gutters and on your roof. While they seem harmless enough, those fallen leaves can lead to significant roof damage that can go on to cause water issues inside your home.
