5 Reasons to Hire a Pressure Washing Company

Updated: Dec 12, 2018

Pressure washing is a great way to clean up a lot of surfaces around your home. Whether you are looking for a way to clean up your house, driveway, or deck; pressure washing is a great way to do it.

Even though many people believe that they can do it on their own, it’s a good idea to hire a professional company. Below are five benefits of hiring a company to do it for you.

It Will be Safer to Have It Done Professionally

It is a common belief that you can simply pick up a pressure washer learn how to use it quickly and with ease. When you do this, you might actually be putting your property and yourself at risk.

These types of machines are very intense and powerful. Even the smaller machines are hard for novices to control. But when you hire a professional pressure washing company, they know how to use them safely and effectively.

When you hire a professional pressure washing company, you will get a licensed and insured expert. They are trained on how to use the tools. They are going to know how to handle the force and direct it safely. If something does accidentally happen, they will be able to fix it.

Your Surfaces Will Be Protected

When pressure washing is being done, there are many different types of pressure washers and settings. The temperature and water pressure used on one of your surfaces may not be right to use on another.

An example of this would be using certain settings to wash a home made of brick and then reusing those settings on a wood deck. This is not recommended. A professional pressure washer is going to know what they should be using for different surfaces. They’ll know the way to adjust their settings order to protect different surfaces and avoid damaging them.

This is important when you’re pressure washing a house in order to sell it. The last thing you want to do is make a mistake that could cost you the sale of your house or cause you to get less money than you would have.

An expert is going to know the way the stream should be directed to get the work done. This means that you don’t have to worry about them spraying curbside landscaping like your flowers.

They’ll Have An Accurate Solution

If you look up solutions for pressure washing, you can find a lot of homemade options. The thing is that they are all going to have different blends of detergents, soaps and water.

You might mix one of those batches up and then do the job. However, there’s a good chance that you are going to leave a lot of harmful residue on the surface. If you hire a professional company to do it, they’re going to know which of the solutions that should be used to protect your house or surface.

A company will have no trouble evaluating your house so that they can determine if the solution has to be adjusted for accommodating different surfaces. That means you’ll be confident knowing that they’re doing the work right.

You’ll Be Able to Conserve Water

Pressure washers are able to use as much as 4 gallons/minute. Looking at the project, most of the water’s going to run into your own yard and neighboring areas.

Professional pressure washing companies are going to know how to conserve water that can be used for other projects. Even though this may not be really significant when you compare it with other advantages, this can help with reducing how it impacts the environment.

It’s Going to Save Money and Time

Even though you might think that you are going to save some money when you buy the pressure washer and do it on your own, think about this more closely. How often are you going to use it? If you think you’re going to only use it a couple times a year, does it really make sense to buy it?

When you think about the storage and maintenance it will need for replacing parts, it might be more expensive than you think. To contrast, think about the price of hiring someone to do it.

A lot of teams will offer discounts and deals through the year. When you consider the price of ownership versus hiring someone to do it, chances are that you will find it’s going to be less expensive. Not only that but when you hire someone to do it, you can do other things while they are doing the pressure washing.

As you can see, it often is a better choice to hire a company to do it. Elite Pro-Seal knows what to use, how to use it safely, and we can help protect your property and the environment.
