Everyone desires for a sparkling clean and shiny house. The state of cleanliness of a house
reflects the morale and hygiene of the occupants. No one loves to step into a house which is
ugly and full of dirt. Maintaining cleanliness adds life to your home as well as boosts the
visual appeal. That’s where pressure washing enters the scene.
There are different parts of our houses which cannot be cleaned simply with a sweep of
your brush and requires deep cleaning. For instance, brick pavements, garage floors,
driveways, chimneys, patios and roofs are not very easy to clean. The stubborn stains are a
real pain to wash off and time consuming too. The high pressurized water used in this
process makes the job a whole lot easier. Dirt, mold, dust and mildew gets collected over
your fence, driveways or the exterior surfaces of your house which can be thoroughly and
made to look like new by hiring a professional in this area.
How Pressure Washing Works
A pressure washer can be defined as a device which produces a very strong water jet which
knocks off even the grumpiest dirt and debris from the surface of any structure. In this
device, the pressure can be regulated to release water jets of variable strengths on the basis
of the type of surface and the thickness of dirt stuck on it. Changing the nozzle in the device,
releases jets of different pattern suitable for different cleaning requirements. Professionals
dealing with pressure washing often add detergent with the water in order to loosen the
dirt and reduce the pressure strength to ensure that the surface is not damaged by any way.
What can be cleaned by Pressure Washing?
This is used to clean exterior surfaces such as siding, brick pavement, concrete and asphalt
driveway, wooden fences or floorings and other housing surfaces. However, all pressure
washing companies do not offer the option for all these cleanings. You can call your nearest
pressure washing company to know what kind of services they are offering.
Professional Pressure Washing vs. DIY Pressure Washing
Power washers can be purchased from the market for personal use at home. Naturally they
are comparatively smaller units than the industrial power washers and are run by electricity
or gas. For cleaning in small scale, a personal power washer can be used. But for cleaning in
a larger scale such as full house or property cleaning, which is done once in a couple of
years, it’s wiser and also cost effective to call in a professional power washing company.
If not used following proper methods, power washers can be very dangerous. The pressure
of the water jet can be strong enough to cause severe injury on direct hit. Sometimes the
power washing may dislocate objects from their surfaces and bolt them at high velocities
causing damage to nearby objects or hurting people. Using a power washer at a higher than
appropriate pressure may damage the surface as well. To save energy, money and time, it’s
always suggested to go for a professional power washing company ensuring a perfectly
clean, shiny and beautiful home.
