Your Skimming and Surface Cleaning Experts

At Residential Pool Cleaning, we do professional skimming and surface cleaning in Sterling VA. Regular pool cleaning, including skimming, is crucial for maintaining a hygienic, safe, and inviting swimming environment. The main function of a pool skimming service is to remove debris, leaves, insects, and other floating contaminants from the pool’s surface before they sink and decompose.

Comprehensive Skimming and Surface Cleaning Procedure

Our skimming and surface cleaning procedure has a systematic approach. We inspect the pool area for any visible debris and remove it. Then, our pool technicians check the skimmer basket, emptying it of debris. Also, we use a telescopic pole to attach the pool skimmer net for manual skimming and move the net across the surface, targeting floating debris. Our staff cleans the waterline with a pool brush to prevent algae buildup and inspects and cleans the above ground pool skimmer, ensuring it’s free of obstructions.
