Why Hire a Professional Power Washing Company?

Why Hire a Professional Power Washing Company?

You may have seen it before on homes in your neighborhood. Mold and mildew creeping up vinyl siding, marring the exterior with ugly blotches. Has it creeped over to your house too? Whether you’re dealing with stained siding, marks and smudges on your beautiful deck, or grit and grime buildup on your driveway, their stubborn refusal to go away can be frustrating!

Thanks to the weather — particularly the heat and humidity — we experience here in North Carolina, these issues are incredibly common. There's one way to get rid of them: a solid power wash. But before you buy or rent a pressure washer, ask yourself if this is a job better left to the pros.

 

A DIY Job?

Thinking about heading down to the hardware store to purchase the latest, greatest pressure washer model on sale? Not so fast! There are some real drawbacks to handling this job on your own. While it's always rewarding to tackle a big task, when it comes to power washing your siding, your deck, or your driveway, calling a professional team for help is a smart choice.

Why?

We're Your First Line of Defense Against Damage

One reason to consider working with a professional commercial pressure washing team is that they can ensure your home and other surfaces are not damaged in the cleaning process. A power washer can deliver pressure ratings up to 4000 pounds per square inch (psi). With such  power behind it, spray could destroy the siding you're trying to clean or leave holes in your deck. It could even erode the mortar between bricks in your chimney.

You may have been trying to clean up your home when you started, but at the end of the process, you could be calling companies for estimates on siding repair. When you work with a professional power washing company, though, they know exactly how much pressure each surface requires. They clean —  without being mean to your property!

It's a Better (and Greener) Clean

Cleaning “solutions” can cause more problems than they solve. Some products contain ingredients that could kill your lawn, flowers, and gardens, hurt your pets, and force you to bar your kids from the backyard for the next several months.

With a professional team on your side, you're going to get a precise solution that works for your surface and doesn't leave behind harmful chemicals. You can feel confident knowing that you are getting a clean clean.

Moreover, you'll be conserving water when you work with a professional team. Power washers can use four gallons every minute. Professionals understand how to clean your home without wasting water. And in some cases, they can even capture the runoff for use in future projects, which may help save you a bit of money when it comes to your next water bill.

You Could Save a Life

Power washing can be dangerous. You are not just risking damage to your home — you could put yourself and those around you in danger. The Centers for Disease Control advises that risks include serious injuries caused by the fast, powerful spray. Imagine, for a moment, that strong spray accidentally hits your leg. Doesn't seem so bad?

It happened to a man in Alberta, Canada. He was power washing his ATV, and the spray passed over his calf. The wound was small, just two inches in length. Unfortunately, the force of the spray pushed bacteria deep into the muscles. An infection resulted, and it took several operations and physical therapy for the patient to heal.

His story is just one of many. More than 6,000 people go to the ER each year due to power washing equipment mishaps, according to the Consumer Products Safety Commission. The last thing you want is to be one of those individuals. Hiring a team of commercial pressure washing professionals means you can avoid injury and still get the clean you wanted.
