Why should I pressure wash my house?
Over time your house exterior can gather a build up of dust, dirt, film, and oxidation. In damp areas it can also build-up mold, mildew, and fungi. The build-up of these contaminates causes your house to appear old, dull, dirty and can contribute to the degradation of the paint.
Having your house pressure washed will remove all of the aforementioned contaminates leaving the exterior of your home vibrant and clean, and give your home some great “curb appeal.”
Can you remove oil stains from my driveway?
Driveways are usually made of concrete or asphalt. In the case of concrete driveways, the concrete is porous. This causes it to act like a sponge when oil is spilled on it. Because of this, the oil can be removed from the surface and lighten the oil stain, but will most likely leave behind a stain.
In the case of asphalt, the asphalt itself is made from oil. The stains are more easily removed from the asphalt, but cannot be completely removed due the fact that it would degrade the asphalt itself.
My fence is gray and weathered, is it even worth pressure washing?
Sure. Pressure washing the fence, as with decks, will remove the gray weathering from the wood bringing it back to its original color. Fences that have been weathered to the point of extreme dry rot won’t experience a good result though.
Will pressure washing remove the rust or black spots from my siding?
Yes. The black spots that can appear on siding are mildew. Rust streaks found on siding are caused by the rusting of the fastener used to attach the siding. In either case, pressure washing will leave your home’s siding clean and free of these contaminants.
Why not just buy or rent a pressure washer and do it myself?
There are many factors that will determine the results you will get when pressure washing. The pressure washer machine that you most likely will get when you buy or rent one are not capable of providing the same output as a professional pressure washer machine. Professionals also use industrial detergents and chemicals that are not available in general home improvement stores. Professionals have the knowledge and experience in using the combination of the equipment and chemicals. An inexperienced individual can easily cause damage to the surface they are attempting to clean with the pressure washer and/or chemicals. Considering these factors, hiring a professional will most certainly save you time and money in the long run while giving you better results.
