Frequently Asked Questions About Pressure Washing

Q. What Is Pressure Washing?

A. Pressure washing is the process of using highly-pressurized blasts of water that can be used to clean many of the surfaces around your property. Pressure washing can be a highly effective way to remove many of the common contaminants found on the surface of your home, including dirt, grime, mold, mildew, and even algae.

Q. How Often Do Surfaces Need To Be Pressure Washed?

A. For many surfaces around your home, having them pressure washed on an annual basis is often enough, but this is highly dependent on the type of material as well as its overall condition.

Q. Can I Pressure Wash My Home On My Own?

A. While it is possible to rent or buy a pressure washer and perform the job yourself, for the best results, it's often best to leave the job in the hands of the pros. Not only do professional pressure washing contractors often have access to higher-grade equipment, but they often have the experience necessary to get the job done quicker and more effectively.

Q. Will A High-Pressure Wash Damage The Surface Of My Home?

A. If done improperly, pressure washing can actually cause damage to the surface of your home. This is one of the primary reasons that it's often best to leave the job in the hands of the pros. Professional pressure washing contractors have the equipment and experience necessary to clean the exterior of your home without causing damage in the process.

A. These terms are actually wholly synonymous. Pressure washing and power washing are often used interchangeably by various professionals, but at the end of the day, they are the same thing.
