Pool Cleaning Services
Every family with a swimming pool in their backyard deserves to enjoy splashing around in a clean pool on a hot summer day. While the process can be daunting and tedious—leaving you unmotivated to keep your pool water clean—it’s an essential part of pool maintenance. After all, no one wants to swim in a pool infested with germs, bacteria, and potential illnesses. Your pool needs a dedicated professional committed to the health and safety of your loved ones. At ASP - America's Swimming Pool Company, we offer you pool cleaning services that help protect you and your family. Our pool professionals are highly skilled, trained, and licensed to handle the cleaning process and make being a pool owner enjoyable again.
Why is it Important to Keep My Swimming Pool Clean?
You expect your pool water to be crystal clear, indicating a seemingly germ-free environment. However, unclean water can create an atmosphere that’s unsafe for your family and friends, resulting in serious health conditions.
What Happens When You Don’t Keep Your Pool Clean?
It would be a shame to have a stunning pool in your backyard that isn’t maintained properly. More than a passing annoyance, an unclean pool can be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria that can cause many health issues, including exacerbating chronic conditions.
Additionally, an unclean pool can:
- Leave stains on the surface of your pool and irritate your eyes
- Break down pool filters and pumps, causing components to malfunction
- Contain a wide range of bacteria and viruses, leading to hospitalization
- Cause significant health problems, including ear, nose, and throat infections
Other factors, including rain, airborne microorganisms, and synthetic oils and lotions, can lessen the quality of your pool water. For these reasons, regular pool cleaning and care can help you prevent harmful pollutants from entering and remaining in your pool.
How Often Should I Have My Pool Cleaned?
We recommend cleaning your pool at least once a week, especially during the summer when it gets used most. This includes using the proper tools and adequate chemicals to treat your pool and maintain the correct pH levels.
Signs You Need a Professional Pool Cleaning Service
Keeping your pool clean is a combination of attention to detail and having the right tools to do the job. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time or resources to devote to sufficient pool care or knows the indicators that cleaning is overdue. When it comes to the upkeep of your pool, the water will give you several visual signs that it’s time to hire professionals to help.
One of the most overt signs that your pool needs to be cleaned is water discoloration. When your water isn’t treated properly or frequently with the right combination of products, the water can develop algae or other contaminants that affect the color. Whether your pool is green, brown, or yellow, any color other than clear is a significant sign that professional cleaning is necessary.
Bugs, Bugs, and More Bugs
Bacteria isn’t the only thing that could be living in your pool. Bugs tend to find their way around the water and sometimes accidentally fall in. No one likes to look in their pool and see bugs having a field day. Insects like mosquitoes, water beetles, gnats, tiny red pool mites, and more can end up in your pool, creating an unclean and unsanitary environment. The best thing you can do is call one of our professionals to get rid of these critters once and for all.
Irritation to Eyes and Skin
Minor skin and eye irritation is fairly normal if you’re swimming and like to keep your eyes open underwater. However, you could get a serious skin condition called “hot tub rash” from unclean water that lingers on the skin long-term. The germ Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a common cause of negative reactions to pool water, especially when water isn’t treated properly or chemically balanced.
Scaling is the buildup of inorganic material found on pool tile, stone, fiberglass, and other hard surfaces. Normally, scaling is an indication that the calcium, pH, and alkaline levels in your pool are too high. Having your pool professionally cleaned can help mitigate these kinds of issues.
Bubbles or Foam in the Water
Bubbles or foam on the surface of your pool water might look fun, but this simply means your pool has strong surface tension caused by:
- Contaminates like sunblock, lotion, and/or soap
- A high concentration of surface bacteria and germs
- A chemical imbalance (having too many or too few chemicals)
Cleaning My Pool on My Own Vs. Professional Swimming Pool Cleaning Services
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with going the DIY route when cleaning your pool. In fact, we recommend that you know a little about pool maintenance as a pool owner so that you can maintain it if the professionals aren’t available. Fortunately, ASP - America's Swimming Pool Company is here whenever you need us. Still, we understand the specific chemical levels, can save you time and money, and help you avoid accidents or injury.

How Much Does Pool Cleaning Cost?
Pool care can vary in cost, depending on the duration, frequency, products used, and type of services your pool requires. A one-time deep cleaning may be more expensive than weekly cleanings (if your pool is exceptionally dirty). During our initial contact, we can provide an estimate for the specific pool solutions you need and make any necessary adjustments along the time.
Types of Pool Cleaning Treatment and Services
Our pool techs around the country are proud to serve homeowners, offering specialized, affordable, and effective pool services that range from routine maintenance, inspection, repair, and remodeling. Accompanying those services, we use state-of-the-art and industry-standard products to get and keep your pool clean all year long.
Your pool filter is one of the most important pool components, as it helps remove contaminants from the water and keep it clear and healthy. When a filter is polluted or incorrectly cleaned, your pool’s system pressure is impacted, causing parts connected to your plumbing to perform insufficiently and potentially deteriorate. We are ready to handle the dirty work, so your only concern should be how long to spend in your crystal-clear pool.
ASP has comprehensive maintenance plans that help sustain the four components of your pool: filtration system, the water, returns and skimmers, and the pool’s surface. Our goal is to make pool and hot tub and spa maintenance as simple and stress-free as possible.
Any discoloration in your pool is a sure-fire sign that bacteria and/or algae are present in the water. After all, you can’t enjoy your pool if it could compromise the health and well-being of you and your friends and family. Our Green-to-Clean recovery process transforms discolored pool water back into a crystal-clear oasis in about 3-5 days. An ASP-certified technician removes debris, chemically kills algae, and makes your pool transparent again.
When people think of acid washing a pool, they usually think of just scrubbing the bottom of the pool. On the contrary, our pool cleaners apply acid wash to remove a thin layer of plaster, algae, minerals, chlorine, and dirt stains. Any pool stains are nearly impossible to eliminate without the acid washing process. As a result, you get a freshly exposed layer of plaster that helps maintain a clean environment in your pool.
Why Do I Need Professional Pool Cleaners?
Keeping your pool clean takes more than just skimming the water’s surface every so often to remove debris and bugs. Our pool technicians follow a very strict process that helps balance your chemicals and remove pollutants and irritants to mitigate problems down the road.
Additionally, our professional pool cleaners provide:
- Ongoing service and maintenance - When you hire one of our experienced specialists to keep your pool clean, you’re trusting us to provide consistent service and care so that you don’t have to. We’ll provide all the necessary products and show up on time with the proper tools to get the job done right promptly.
- Pool opening services - After the cold months have passed, it’s time to get your pool opening to-do list together. Our pool opening services can include reattaching pool ladders and railings, reassembling the pool filter and pump, and removing the pool cover and winterizing plugs.
- Pool closing services - Pool closing or winterizing services help you wrap up pool season at your backyard retreat. The professionals at ASP can remove debris, add the correct winterizing chemicals to protect your pool during cold weather, drain the pump, and decrease the water level.
- One-time pool cleaning services - Routine maintenance is important, but sometimes, you just need a one-time cleaning to jumpstart the habit of regular pool care. We can deliver superior quality one-time cleaning that makes your safety a priority.>
Pool Cleaning Services for All Residential Inground Pool Types
Whether you have a large vinyl or small concrete pool in your backyard, our cleaning services are designed for all residential pool types. Homeowners can get the most use of their pools when they implement our comprehensive and affordable pool services.
Inground Vinyl Liner Pool
Inground vinyl liner pools are extremely durable and nonporous. One of the great things about a vinyl liner pool is that they require fewer chemicals than concrete pools. Additionally, the smooth surface reduces the growth of contaminants such as algae and decreases the chances of deterioration and unclean water.
Concrete pools can last up to 50 years or longer when properly maintained. Our team has extensive experience working with concrete, as it requires the most maintenance. Calcium tends to build up in concrete pools, making chemical levels vital to a healthy environment.
When you’re considering a pool for your backyard, fiberglass is a popular option that gives you the installation cost of concrete with the easy pool maintenance of vinyl. While maintenance will be minimal, it’s important to have a professional pool cleaner on hand to care for your fiberglass pool frequently.
