Keeping your home and surrounding area clean can sometimes be a big job. Particularly if you have a lot of difficult to clean areas, like extensive walkways or brickwork, or multi-story spans of aluminum or vinyl siding.
What Is Pressure Washing?
Pressure washing is using a pressurized spray of water, usually generated by a small gas engine with an attached water tank, to clean various surfaces. While the phrases “pressure washing” and “power washing” are often used interchangeably, power washing often uses heated water. If this heated water is needed, there is often an option for it on many large pressure washing units. Pressure washing is one of the easiest, quickest, and most effective way to clean just about any outdoor surface.
Why Pressure Wash?
The main benefit behind pressure washing is cleaning things extremely fast, and extremely well! For example, if you have exterior brickwork on your home, you probably know that things like ivy, kudzu, and other vining plants love brick. Hiring a pressure washing service to come and give your home a bath, is often one of the most cost-effective and quick ways to spruce up its appearance.
Not only will it effectively remove things like plants, moss, and algae, but it can strip off months or years of dirt and grime in a single pass. Doing the same for your walkways can make them look brand new, especially with custom masonry or cobblestone walks.
What Can I Have Pressure Washed?
Not only can you have your home washed, removing layer after layer of built-up dirt, grit, and grime, along with anything growing on it that shouldn’t be, but you can have nearly any outdoor item pressure washed.
Sidewalks, driveways, and custom stone paths are perfect for pressure washing. It is a huge hassle and time sink to get the soap, bucket, and hard bristle brush and spend several hours on your hands and knees, scrubbing away at the masonry like the maid in some 19th-century novel. A professional power washer can set up the machine, and clean the stonework well enough to pass as new, at a pace nearly as fast as a leisurely stroll.
Gutters are another great thing to have your power washing service take care of. Clean gutters flow better and have less debris build up over time. Do you have a boat or maybe some jetskis? Get that algae and lakewater blasted off the hull in just a few minutes. The same goes for your patio furniture.
Why Should I Hire Someone To Do It?
Aside from having to worry about buying and maintaining the equipment, you also have to worry about what type of cleansers you use, some will degrade the washer’s connections, and some won’t. Then you have to find a place in your garage or shed to store an appliance you might use a few times a year at most.
