3 Things to Know Before You Power Wash Anything

Taking care of your power washing now is a great way to prepare your outdoor living space for the spring. Whether you plan to call a professional or DIY your power washing, there are a few things you should be aware of first! Check out these three tips before power washing anything this spring.

There is Preparation Involved

So, you just scheduled your professional power washing. Job done, right? Not quite yet! If you want to get the most out of your power washing, you can follow a few steps to prepare your home for a power washing, whether you are DIY’ing the power washing or trusting a professional. For starters, you’ll want to secure every entry of your home. If there are any openings, water will find its way inside. You’ll also want to be sure to move anything you definitely need to keep dry, as objects outside of the direct power washing stream may be splashed with ricocheted water.  

Not all Power Washing Companies are the Same

If you decide to call on a professional for your spring power washing, don’t just trust the first company you come across online. Be sure to scope out reviews first to see that you’re dealing with a company that delivers top-notch service time and time again.

While you’re researching power washing companies, be sure to find one that is licensed and insured. Regardless of the contractor’s experience, the risk of them accidentally damaging your property is always present. If unintended damage happens with an uninsured contractor, you would personally be financially responsible for covering any damages. The damage could potentially cost thousands of dollars to repair or even more if you decide to file a lawsuit.

There is Risk Involved When You DIY Power Washing

Are you planning to DIY your power washing? That is totally fine, but make sure you understand that there is risk involved here. Most often, DIY power washers don’t realize that even rental units have quite a lot of water pressure. Be sure to use caution when washing the more delicate areas of your home, like your deck and siding. Alternatively, you could always trust Peak Power Wash and our Soft Wash technique!
