Pressure washing has become a very popular way to clean outdoors in both residential, commercial, and business locations. Pressure washing is the preferred way to clean driveways, walkways, sidewalks, houses, patios, roofs, etc… Pressure washing is suitable and safe for a number of different surfaces and the cleaning power is efficient and effective at removing all dirt of salt deposits that contribute to surface weathering. Many homeowners have saved time and money on repairs and replacements of their decks and roofs by power washing them first.
Pressure Washing is Easier Than Traditional Methods
Conventional cleaning methods usually require a lot of time, equipment, and energy. With pressure washing, there is no need to spend time scrubbing and retreating to get rid of stubborn debris and stains. Pressure washers save you the time, effort, and back strain by letting you stand upright while the power of the water and, in some cases, cleaning agents do the work.
Pressure Washing Saves Time
Pressure washing saves a lot of precious time that all of us seem to need more of. Using the sprayer to systematically blast dirt and grime off of surfaces is much more efficient time wise than scrubbing and rinsing and repeating where and when necessary. Pressure washing gets off all of the layers of a deck, also, so you won’t have to worry about cleaning and then stripping. If you choose to hire a professional, you save ALL of the time it would have taken you to gather materials, learn how to operate them, prepare the cleaning solution if needed, and do the washing.
Pressure Washing Keeps Everyone Safe
Your home is home to more than just you and your family. There are microscopic harmful organisms that live on decks, exterior walls, and sidewalks as well as other areas of your home. From dirt, dust, and harmful mold and mildew, these contaminants are not good to keep around in your environment. Keeping your home as clean as possible is a surefire way to cut down on the number of illnesses and sickness that plague the people and pets that you love.
Pressure Washing Boosts Curb Appeal
Curb value (what your house looks like from the outside) is a thing. Believe it or not, cleaning the outside of your home can raise you home’s value by as much as $10,000. Curb appeal allows your home to stand out from your neighbors and more importantly, other home listings. When it comes time to have an open house or have prospective buyers come for a house tour, it’s important that it be as clean as it can be. Yes, the new homeowner can clean it but you have a much better chance of selling it by making sure that it’s ready to go, clean, and beautiful.
Pressure Washing is Easy on the Environment
When it comes to the major cleaning around your home, many people think of mountains of harmful chemicals that they think are necessary to get the job done. This isn’t true! By power washing around the outside of your home, you’re not only getting your house clean, you’re saving the environment by skipping all of the harmful chemicals that are used in traditional cleaning. Pressure washers work by blasing water at a high rate and the power of the water stream is what does the cleaning. The only scenario where an environmentally friendly chemical is used is during soft washing, when the water pressure isn’t as strong.
Pressure washers also use less water than would be used if a garden hose was used to spray everything down. The amount of force applied by pressure washers means that much less water is needed to get the job done. Some estimates suggest that as much as 75% of water is saved using pressure washing.
