We are in the thick of winter now, but you might be surprised to know that it’s still a great time to have your home power washed! However, during the harshest months of the year, there are several reasons why it makes sense to trust the professionals with your next exterior winter power washing.
Effectiveness in Cold Weather
The freezing point for water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit, making it quite tricky to power wash during the deepest parts of winter. Luckily, as long as it’s not windy, we can continue to use most standard techniques on days when temperatures drop down to as low as 15 degrees. If it is extra breezy, we prefer to power wash on days above 35 degrees to account for wind chill temperature drops.
Cold Weather Takes its Toll on Equipment
Pressure washers are very easy to damage once colder weather arrives. If you own one yourself, even a simple mistake like failing to drain the water lines fully can cause the washer to freeze and break. Rather than dealing with all that hassle and risk, let us take care of it for you! We always transport our equipment in fully enclosed vehicles to keep them at safe temperatures and warm them up before starting each pressure wash during the winter. We get the little details right, so you don’t have to worry about them!
Our Winter Specific Approach
Typical power washing chemicals start to work a little more slowly when colder weather rolls around. Some chemicals may not work at all due to their reliance on heat to help lift stains. As such, we carefully choose our winter formula to ensure we can deliver the same stunning results you are used to seeing from us. Additionally, we are open to planning your power washing in advance based on daylight and upcoming weather forecasts to avoid extreme temperatures and wintery weather.
