Why Pressure Wash Your House?
Pressure washing can be incredibly beneficial to your home and outdoor property. Not only is it great for cleaning the exterior of your house, it is also excellent for preparing the walls for paint, cleaning decks and railings, wood and vinyl fences, asphalt and concrete driveways, as well as metal patio furniture and stone.
Pressure washing is valuable, but only when it is done properly. The correct knowledge is needed to know how it affects different materials and how they react to pressure. Because of this, it is recommended to have your home pressure washed by a licensed, professional cleaner.
Below, are four reasons you should hire a professional pressure washer:
#1 – Danger To Yourself or Others
By definition, pressure washers pack a lot of pressure. In fact, they can generate up to 4,000 pounds per square inch (psi). In comparison, an average garden house only delivers water at around 50 psi.
This type of high-powered stream can be extremely dangerous for people and pets as it can pierce skin and eyes. According to a national news source, over 6,000 people were admitted to the hospital emergency room for pressure washing related injuries.
Professional washers know to handle this unique equipment as well as how to protect themselves and others in the area.
If the job requires a ladder or is on the roof, that added dimension of height can make the difficult job even more dangerous.
#2 – Danger To Your Property
Not only can these powerful water streams harm people, but they can also harm your property if used incorrectly. When used improperly, pressure washers can damage the roof, siding, stucco, window screens, and the surrounding landscape. This can cause an exuberant amount of money to spend to repair or replace areas that were damaged.
#3 – Requires Expertise and the Right Resources
Unfortunately, pressure washing is not as easy as simply turning on the machine and pointing it at a specific spot. Professionals know when to adjust the pressure based on the surface, and when to use other methods such as heat and cleaning solutions when needed. Also, only certain kinds of cleaning solutions can be used in order to comply with the EPA’s Clean Water Act.
#4 – Saves You Time, Effort, And Money
Not only does hiring a professional save you some hard work, but it also saves you time and money. It takes a lot of effort and physical labor to embark on such a task, and professional washers can guarantee results that last. What may take an untrained person a day to perform, a professional can do the same work in a few hours.
