Pressure washing or power washing is the use of a high-pressure water spray to deep clean. Pressure washing is most commonly used to rid surfaces of mold, grime, dust, mud, and overall build-up. It can completely transform a deck, driveway, home, or sidewalk and is a great way to freshen up the exterior of your home.
What’s Included with a Pressure Wash Service?
Absolute Painting & Power Washing can pressure wash many different surfaces around the home or business. Most homeowners call us to pressure wash the siding and trim on the exterior of their home. Many ask us to wash the concrete surfaces or decks around the home as well. Many pressure washing companies do not use any cleaning solution when washing surfaces. At Absolute, we have been using a cleaning solution mixed in with the water when we wash almost any surface as it helps it get cleaner and stay cleaner. Many surfaces can get damaged with too much pressure from a pressure washer so the cleaning solution helps to avoid that. Some types of siding are more likely to get damaged than others so you need to know how much pressure to use in each situation.
Reasons to Hire for a Professional Pressure Wash Service
Hiring a professional portland Oregon pressure washing team is usually the best option. Most homeowners that have pressure washers are not strong enough for the job. Larger pressure washers make the job much easier and will take much less time. Pressure washing companies have better equipment than most homeowners and know how to use it without causing damage to any surfaces being cleaned. Pressure washers have different types of tips depending on what you are doing and some tips can damage siding very easily. Any type of wood siding is very easy to damage when pressure washing as it is very soft. Hardie Plank siding is much easier to wash without damaging it if you are not very experienced. What you’re pressure washing matters!
Pressure Wash Driveway Tips
We use special equipment to pressure wash flat surfaces such as driveways and other concrete surfaces. Using a surface cleaner with a high-pressure washer can make the job go much faster and turn out much better. Using a traditional pressure washer gun on flat concrete can be a very time-consuming process. Pressure washing your driveway can help keep it looking great and also safe for walking when it is wet. Driveways with moss and mildew can get extremely slippery and dangerous.
Pressure Wash Fence Tips
If you need to wash your fence you will likely not need a lot of pressure. Most fences do not get that dirty as they are not a flat surface that dirt can build up on. They may turn grey and look bad but with a light pressure wash and some outdoor cleaner of some type you can make them look great again.
Pressure Wash Deck Tips
Pressure washing a deck can be dangerous if you do not have experience. They are typically very soft wood and can be damaged easily. We recommend not getting very close and using an outdoor cleaner on any wood deck surface. Some composite decks or hardwood decks are much harder and more forgiving and harder to damage. Keeping your deck clean can help keep it from getting very slick especially during the wet season. Decks can be like a skating rink when they are dirty and wet so better to be safe than sorry.
