5 Things to Know About Power Washing

There are things to know about power washing that are very important that I will touch on below. Here are five things that you should know.

Power Washing vs. Pressure Washing

Though they sound very similar, power washing and pressure washing are two different house cleaning services. In the case of power washing, technicians heat the water. Pressure washing which uses cool or cold ground water is more suitable for projects like concrete, wood, stone, and painted surfaces.

It’s Dangerous

Many times homeowners are tempted to complete power or pressure washing projects on their own. Even if you rent or purchase the proper equipment there are many safety issues. The staff at Peak Power Wash will always come prepared with the proper safety gear such as gloves, headphones, boots, and safety eye-wear to prevent any unnecessary injury. The fact of the matter is, while power washing dirt, tiny stones, paint, and other contaminants can be thrown back at you due to the high intensity of the process. Our team of professionals are also highly trained to avoid making contact with human beings, electricity, faucets, and much more.

Protect Your Plants

It is advisable to cover any flowers or plants in the vicinity of your power washing project. You can use a tarp or other plastic material to accomplish this task. Additionally, be sure to take down any decorations and move furniture and outdoor toys from the area.

Avoid Winter

Summer is the best time to power wash and winter is probably the least ideal. In the winter there are concerns with freezing temperatures. When the water gets into nooks and crannies in the exterior of your home and then freezes as temperature drops, the expansion of the water in the freezing process can and will damage your home. At a minimum it should be at least May before scheduling a power washing project with Peak Power Wash.

Cleaning Solution

Peak Power Wash doesn’t use simply soap and water. Rather, we have specific cleaning solutions to ensure your home is properly cleaned while being gentle on the environment. We avoid solutions from the big box stores.

Smart Move
