We know, we are a little bias on professional power washing, but hear us out. Buying pressure washing equipment can be one of the best purchases you will make. However, this tool does not mean the job will be easy or done right. There are many aspects to power washing many people do not understand, leading them to make irreversible mistakes. We will let you in on why choosing a professional power washing service is a better idea.
Pressure Washing can be Dangerous and Messy.
- It might not seem too hard to handle, but power washers are… well… extremely powerful, and should not be underestimated. If you so much as to forget to wear the right shoes, gloves, or eye protection, you could be in a world of hurt. Do you have an aversion to water? We hate to state the obvious, but you will get wet. There is no getting around it. Even the most trained professional power washing technicians understand and prep for this fact.
- Does your roof need a deep clean? Don’t even think of using an aluminum ladder, even with someone holding it. The machine could recoil, and you will be shot off in no time. Standing on the rooftop is very dangerous as well. Trained professional power washing contractors have the tools and experience in handling this tricky job.
- Are you wanting to use an electric power washer? Use extreme caution to avoid being shocked. You will need the correct power extensions and a grounded power supply. Cleaning around wires and meters can also be very daunting. Do you have adequate water access? Some houses only have a spigot in the back. In that case, you will need to purchase hose extensions.
- Most important of all, don’t underestimate the power that you yield. This means you will need to be super aware of your surroundings as not to harm anyone. The pressure from these machines can be strong enough to land someone in the hospital. Professional power washing contractors take all these precautions and preparations to heart. They are also insured so that if something happens to a house or an individual, it should be covered.
Experience is Needed to Do a Good Job
It can take some time to get familiar to do a great job at power washing. Patience is the key. Streaks are hard to avoid when you are in a hurry. At the same time, you don’t want to linger. Focusing on one spot for too long can cause damage. Though it seems satisfying a fun at first, it is very wearing. Professionals have this rhythm down to a T, making their job take much less time and have a guaranteed satisfactory outcome.
Having knowledge on what type of machine will work best is imperative. Pressure washing machines can be very expensive, and you get what you pay for. You must know if the PSI and nozzle fits the job. The same pressure and nozzle used on your sidewalk is not the same you’ll want to use on your siding. There are also a ton of extensions and tools to add to the bill, making it even more expensive. Going the rental route over having a professional do the cleaning can be a big waste of money if you are not up to the task.
It’s a one-time purchase of a tool that you don’t get to keep with an uncertain outcome. Instead, you could just pay a professional power washing business to take care of it, saving you time, garage room, and effort. You’ll also be supporting the local economy, which is an extremely important thing to do currently.
