How to Choose a Pressure Washing Contractor

Pressure Washing your home is a great way to maintain the value and curb appeal while protecting the surfaces from costly repairs and damage. Here’s how to choose a pressure washing contractor.

Many homeowners may believe that pressure washing is easy and that they can handle it themselves. This may be true for some but there are some things you should know. Even consumer grade pressure washers are capable of causing great damage to just about any surface of your home.

Long gone are the days of blasting away at your siding with high pressure trying to remove the dirt, mold and mildew. The truth is, this just does not work. It may remove some of the surface dirt but it is not killing the mold spores which will only make the mold return really quickly. The proper detergents should be used to kill the mold spores and then should be followed by a low pressure rinse. There is no need for high pressure. It can damage your siding, blast water through windows and doors, etc. A professional pressure washing company will only use the “Soft Wash’ cleaning methods.

By hiring a professional licensed and insured Peninsula pressure washing contractor trained in these methods, you can rest assured that your home will look great and you will not have to worry about damaging your largest investment.

A professional company can provide you with license and insurance information. They should also provide you with a written proposal for any work to be performed as well as referrals or testimonials from past customers.
