Pressure washing is a great way to remove the dirt, grime, grease, and mold that frequently forms on your house siding, roofs, decks, and concrete. When done correctly, pressure washing can safely remove these harmful elements from your surfaces. But if done incorrectly, it can definitely cause problems and possibly permanent damage to your property.
There are three components that a professional pressure washing company will consider before cleaning any surface. They are:
- Choosing the correct cleaning solution
- What pressure will be most effective
- Is heat needed for the best results
Knowing how to combine these four elements isn’t something that one can learn by trial and error. There is actually a lot of science that goes into the proper combination based on the type of job which is why hiring a professional pressure washer that uses commercial power washing equipment is highly recommended. It’s an urban myth that pressure washing “blasts” dirt off your house with high pressure. Different surfaces require different water flow rates and this type of knowledge requires training.
Be cautious of DYI contractors that offer exterior power washing as “just another service we offer”. I highly doubt they have been properly trained which can result in all types of issues like not removing the dirt and grime off your surfaces, damage to your siding, concrete streaking and permanent damage to your deck. And don’t forget about the possible damage to your landscaping from chemical run-off and general carelessness.
