Debunking 5 common pressure washing myths

In the world of pressure washing, there are many myths circulating that make people second-guess whether they want to use this service on their home or commercial property.

Myth: Pressure Washing Is Too Costly

Truth: Many people assume that pressure washing is too pricey. The fact of the matter is that pressure washing is actually incredibly affordable when you look at the costs compared to the time and money you'd spend on trying to handle the pressure washing on your own. At the end of the day, it makes much more sense financially to hire a professional pressure washing service.

Myth: You Can Use High Water Pressure On Any Surface

Truth: Pressure washing utilizes high-powered water jets to eradicate grime and gunk from most surfaces, such as brick, stone, pavers, asphalt, and concrete. While this is an effective tactic, it doesn't work everywhere. For more delicate areas, such as vinyl siding or shingles, you'll want a gentler approach. This is where we'll utilize a method known as soft washing, which involves a combination of lower water pressure and special chemicals to remove grime.

Myth: Soft Wash Chemicals Are Dangerous

Truth: As mentioned previously, we sometimes use special chemicals and soaps in our soft washing services. This may sound concerning, but there is nothing to worry about. The soft washing chemicals are completely eco-friendly, meaning they won't cause any harm to your property or the environment. In addition to this, you'll be able to let your kids and pets outside almost immediately after we've applied them.

Myth: Only Large Properties Need Pressure Washing Help

Truth: While we take great pride in helping out larger property owners with their residential or commercial pressure washing needs, they're not the only ones who can benefit from our services. Even if you own a small, one-floor ranch home, you'll want to take advantage of our pressure washing packages in order to make your property look its absolute best.

Myth: Pressure Washing Is DIY

Truth: A common mistake made by homeowners is assuming they can handle pressure washing all on their own. Pressure washing requires a level of experience and knowledge in order to get the best results. You also need the right equipment and training; otherwise, you could end up injuring yourself in the process.
