Pressure washing or power washing is the use of high-pressure water spray to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, chewing gum and dirt from surfaces. We use 3 GPM (Gallon per Minute) and 3,200 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch) machines when pressure washing your homes or businesses.
The terms pressure washing and power washing are used interchangeably in many scenarios, and there is some debate as to whether they are actually different processes.
When cleaning driveways, sidewalks and patios, we utilize a pressure washing surface cleaner, which is a tool consisting of two high-pressure jets on a rotating bar that swivels when water is flowing. This action creates a uniformed cleaning pattern that can clean flat surfaces at a rapid rate.
Pressure washing can be used by businesses and homeowners to reduce allergies, minimize hazards, and improve aesthetics. We use pressure washers to clean surfaces such as:
● Roofs (depending on the slope and height)
● Parking lots
Depending upon the surface to be cleaned, higher or lower pressure should be used, as well as the appropriate nozzle. Pressure washer nozzles alter the direction of flow and velocity of the water. Nozzles allow users to reach a greater distance or apply more pressure to a difficult to clean surface, however, they can be dangerous. We carefully analyze and take great care when selecting the nozzle that is appropriate for use on a particular surface. Our nozzles are color coded telling us which color is appropriate for each surface. These color coded nozzles tell us the number of degrees the water fans out when spraying and range from 0° to 65°. Whatever the surface, we make sure to take great care in protecting and more importantly bringing your surfaces back to the way they were when they were brand new. Let us improve the appearance of your home or business and improve its curb appeal.
Why Does Pressure Washing Matter?
Pressure washing can help in many ways and one of those being for renovation purposes. When repainting, resealing or staining the exterior of your business, home, decks or fences, you will want to completely clean off the surface before applying these products. By doing so you can take off old peeling layers of product that will cause the new application problems later on. This will eliminate headaches and problems later down the line.
How can I protect my home from disrepair?
Prevent the growth of destructive mold, mildew, moss, and algae that can cause repair issues down the line. A pressure washer can easily erase mold that has grown onto the side of your home or business. Pressure washing is such an easy solution so there is no need for you to live with the damage and dinginess these kinds of growths can inflict on your space. You may have noticed greenish and black spots on your concrete patio or driveway, this is mold and mildew. This occurs from damp or moist conditions from the rain or humidity. These conditions can also encourage mold and mildew growth in the nooks and cracks of concrete pavers, bricks and even flagstone. We use a concentrate that is completely safe on these surfaces to remove all mold and mildew that has developed over time keeping you safe.
