Questions To Ask Prior To Your Power Washing Services

If you’re considering hiring a professional to power wash some of your property, it’s important to know a little about how it works, what it can do, and what it can’t. Here are the most important questions to ask before your power washing experience.

Why Power Washing?

Most people hire power washing services instead of replacing a deck or driveway due to staining and curb-appeal. While some issues can be resolved using power washing (dirt build-up, debris, mold/fungus growth, grease stains), other issues (rotting, severe mold/fungus, deterioration of surface) need to be properly dealt with. If you’re hoping to give your sagging deck a facelift with power washing, you may want to consider a different service.

What Is the Difference Between Power Washing and Pressure Washing?

While they function virtually the same, power washing uses heated water, while pressure washing does not. The heated water can be more effective against certain substances, and can also aid in disinfecting the area.

What Surfaces Can Be Power Washed?

  • Driveways
  • Roofing
  • Siding
  • Wood/Decks
  • Natural stone
  • Outdoor furniture
  • Stucco
  • Brick

Really, almost any surface can be power washed, if it is done with a skilled, careful hand.

How Long Will It Take?

This depends on how many surfaces you want to clean, how large the surface is, and how many layers of grime need to be disposed of. In general, driveways take time (several hours), as it’s a large surface area and often has a lot of grime to disperse. Furniture usually takes less time. Be aware, power washing can be addictive, and you may be tempted to add more surfaces to the to-do list when you see the results!
