Residential Pressure Washing

Customers are always asking me “What are the benefits of pressure washing?” We’d like to take a moment and give a very detailed answer to that question.


Simply put, pressure washing uses a high-pressure water spray to blast away the dirt that is surrounding your home. It can be used to clean a multitude of surfaces, including: aluminum or vinyl siding, concrete, and even wood. There are also many benefits associated with pressure washing like Preventative Maintenance, Self-Satisfaction and Home Appeal, and not to mention Health and Safety.


Preventative Maintenance


One of the most beneficial reasons to having your home pressure washed is that it can help save you money on any repairs needed in the future. Pressure washing should be scheduled regularly just like any other home maintenance task such as window washing or cleaning out your gutters. Unfortunately though, because of the many different and high importance demands of our day to day, we tend to forget about home maintenance or simply just don’t make it a big deal. The reality of this though is that it can be a huge help, even when done only once a year. Pressure washing can increase the lifetime of your home and outdoor properties by years by reducing the amount of dirt, mold and mildew on these items and delaying any sort of rot and decay these things may cause. Simply put, something as small as a once a year pressure washing job could save you hundreds of dollars on future home repairs.


Self-Satisfaction and Home Appeal


Another great reason to have this service done is for simple self-satisfaction and the appeal of your home. Your home is a huge financial investment and we know you work hard for it. If you’re thinking about repainting or replacing some of that dirty siding, let us help before you spend all that extra money. Our customers are always impressed with how much a simple pressure washing can do for your homes attractiveness and end up saving money by not opting for those more tedious and expensive tasks. Another reason for this is may be you’re trying to sell your home. When a possible buyer looks at your home and gets a good first impression it can add a value of up to 5 or even 10 percent!


Health and Safety


Along with all the other reasons we’ve mentioned, there’s also the factor of health and safety. If you’ve got any of that excess build-up of dirt, mold, mildew, or even oil, it can be harboring several thousands of living bacteria and allergens. Mildew and algae like to grow in damp or shadowed area’s while oil may drip from your car onto the driveway. By pressure washing these area’s and removing all of these foreign invaders, you are not only protecting your family (and any visitors to your home) from getting sick but also from any bodily harm that may come from slipping on some of these very slippery surfaces.


Things your pressure washer should know and do:


  • Using the right spray nozzle. There are many different nozzles and each one provides a specific pressure for that specific surface.

  • Add a commercial-grade, eco-friendly detergent to the water being used to help with theremoval of any of even the toughest dirt and mold.

  • Start spraying with the stream away from the surface and slowly make your way closer to it.

  • Working from side to side, starting with the top working your way down.

With all of this information, we can conclude that pressure washing will not only save you money, but also increase the look and health of your home.
