Frequently Asked Questions

What is pressure washing, and how does it work?

Pressure washing is a high-powered cleaning method that employs pressurized water to remove dirt, grime, and contaminants from various surfaces. It’s akin to using a supercharged hose that sprays water at extremely high pressure levels. This forceful water stream effectively dislodges and washes away stubborn dirt, mold, mildew, and other unsightly substances that accumulate on surfaces over time. The process works by harnessing the energy of water at elevated pressure levels, which is then directed through a specialized nozzle to create a concentrated and powerful stream. This forceful water jet has the ability to dislodge and eliminate even deeply embedded particles, leaving surfaces looking clean and refreshed.

What surfaces can be pressure washed?

Pressure washing is versatile and suitable for a wide range of surfaces. It’s particularly effective for cleaning hard outdoor surfaces such as driveways, sidewalks, patios, decks, fences, and exterior walls. Additionally, pressure washing can be employed to clean roofs, provided it’s done by professionals who are experienced in this delicate task. The adaptability of pressure washing makes it an excellent choice for both residential and commercial cleaning needs, and it can address various types of surface materials including concrete, wood, vinyl, and stucco, among others.

Is pressure washing safe for my property?

Yes, pressure washing is safe for your property when carried out by experienced professionals. Our technicians are well-trained in the proper techniques and use equipment that’s suited for different surfaces. We take precautions to ensure that no harm comes to your property during the cleaning process. For instance, we adjust the pressure levels based on the surface being cleaned to prevent any damage. Additionally, we take care to protect delicate landscaping and plants around the area. When done correctly, pressure washing not only cleans effectively but also preserves the integrity and appearance of your property.

How often should I have my property pressure washed?

The frequency of pressure washing depends on several factors, including the type of surface, environmental conditions, and how quickly dirt accumulates. Generally, annual or biannual pressure washing is recommended for most surfaces to maintain their appearance and prevent the buildup of grime, mold, and mildew. However, surfaces exposed to heavy traffic, pollution, or humid conditions may require more frequent cleaning. Our experts can assess your specific situation and provide you with a customized maintenance schedule to ensure your property remains clean and well-maintained.

Do you use hot or cold water for pressure washing?

We employ both hot and cold water pressure washing methods, choosing the most suitable option for each job. Hot water is highly effective for removing tough stains, grease, and oil because it can break down these substances more effectively than cold water. Cold water pressure washing is often used for routine cleaning tasks and is generally gentler on surfaces. Our technicians are trained to select the appropriate water temperature and pressure levels for your specific cleaning needs, ensuring optimal results while safeguarding the integrity of your surfaces.

Do I need to prepare my property before pressure washing?

While we take care of the heavy lifting, some simple preparations on your part can help the process go smoothly. It’s helpful if you can move outdoor furniture, decorations, and other items away from the areas to be cleaned. Covering delicate plants and landscaping can also be beneficial to shield them from the high-pressure water. However, don’t worry too much about these tasks; our team will guide you on what needs to be done before we start the pressure washing job.

How long does a pressure washing job typically take?

The duration of a pressure washing job can vary depending on several factors, such as the size and condition of the area, the type of surface being cleaned, and the complexity of the job. Generally, most pressure washing projects are completed relatively quickly, often within a few hours. However, for larger or more intricate jobs, it may take a bit longer. We always provide you with an estimate before we begin the work, so you’ll have a clear idea of the time involved.

What chemicals or detergents do you use in pressure washing?

Can pressure washing remove specific stains or mold?

Pressure washing is a powerful tool for removing a wide range of stains, including mold, mildew, algae, oil, grease, and dirt. The force of the high-pressure water stream, combined with the appropriate cleaning solutions, can effectively break down and remove these stubborn stains. Our technicians are skilled at assessing and addressing specific staining issues to deliver impressive cleaning results.
