3 Reasons to Hire a Professional Pressure Washing Service

by | Feb 7,2016

A pressure washer is used when driveways, sidewalks, decks, siding, and roofs have a build up of dirt, grime and mold. This power tool is used by spraying water at high pressures to clean large surfaces.

Pressure washing is not as easy as it looks. Thousands of dollars are spent every year due to damages and injuries. Save yourself the time and trouble and hire a professional.


1. Damages

Many people underestimate how intense the water pressure from a pressure washer can be. Most pressure washers operate at 2000-4000 psi. (That’s a whole lot of pressure!) Therefore, you can completely destroy your driveway, roof, deck, siding etc. if you don’t know how to properly use the machine. Paint can be chipped off, screens can be torn and windows can be broken if you are not at the correct distance from these surfaces and use too much pressure. Chemicals used in a pressure washer can also kill plants and trees if proper precautions aren’t taken.


2. Time

Chemicals used in a pressure washer can also kill plants and trees if proper precautions aren’t taken. Pressure washing and soft washing can take many hours depending on the amount of grime and how large the surface is that needs to be cleaned.


3. There are Risks

The strong spray of water from a pressure washer can inflict serious injury if not used properly. According to the CDC, these wounds can seem minor at first may result in infection if they are not treated immediately. Most injuries are abrasions or cuts due to the water pressure itself or slips and falls due to falling off of ladders.
