Renew Crew began as Wood ReNew back in March of 1993, when founder, Stan
Krempges, was a partner in a fence installation business. His customers
needed a way to keep their decks, fences, and other outdoor structures
clean and protected. Stan did extensive research before developing a wood
cleaner that was both eco-friendly and highly effective. This cleaner
clings to vertical surfaces better, which allows it to emulsify and remove
dirt, mold, and mildew as it soaks into the wood.
Inspired by the success of his product, Stan continued working with leading
coatings chemists to create an equally environmentally friendly protectant
that would permeate the wood and provide a deep seal against UV rays,
dirt buildup, and damaging moisture. Not only do the special polymers
provide great protection, but they also provide an immaculate finish that
shows off the natural luster and wood grain.
Outdoor Living Brands acquired Wood ReNew in 2012 and quickly diversified
the business by adding services such as the cleaning and sealing of concrete,
pavers, windows, gutters, siding, and more. Wood ReNew was rebranded to
Renew Crew to align with the rollout of the newly added services.
A Process That Benefits Both You & Your Future Customers
While our process is relatively simple, it can transform any outdoor space
and, more importantly, your future. When you join our family of franchise
partners, you and your team of expert technicians will follow our three-step
process to clean, protect, and revitalize all outdoor surfaces while pursuing
your financial and lifestyle goals.
The Renew Crew exclusive cleaning process involves the following steps:
Pre-Soak Foam – Your technicians will apply our eco-friendly, proprietary foam cleaner
to the designated surface to loosen embedded grime and dirt. It also loosens
dead wood fibers in wood surfaces.
Power Clean – Next, your team will use low-pressure tools to rinse your surface, wash
away debris, and restore it to its original condition.
Protective Finish – Your technicians will then apply an eco-friendly protectant that seals
the surface’s pores and ensures it looks as new as possible for
as long as possible. This finish contains proprietary polymers that repel
the elements, including UV rays.

Why Invest in an Eco-Friendly Outdoor Surface Cleaning Business?
Did you know that when our competitors clean outdoor spaces using chlorine-
and bleach-based products, dioxins, and harsh chemicals are produced and
dumped into our streams and waterways? The ingredients found in chlorine
and bleach are highly toxic and carcinogenic. Once in our waterways, these
chemicals come in contact with other organic materials that combine to
form a host of toxic organic chemicals.
At Renew Crew, we work hard to prevent this. Consumers like to make educated
choices when selecting which companies they work with and there is a growing
desire to work with businesses that are eco-friendly. Our proprietary
environmentally friendly products clearly differentiate us from typical
pressure washing companies that employ harsh chemicals. In fact, 50% of
today’s global consumers are willing to pay more for socially responsible products.
Our customers often have beautiful landscaping and vegetation around their
homes, so it is important that our cleaners and protectants are biodegradable
and harmless to the surroundings. Our products allow us to deliver efficient
services, achieve higher quality results, and improve the life of outdoor surfaces.
