Benefits of pressure washing

Got a dingy driveway? Has your roof become streaked and stained? Do you want to restore the natural beauty of your deck or fence? You might need the services of a qualified pressure washing company.

Though pressure washers can be bought by consumers, the machinery and process are dangerous, with water pressure powerful enough to cause serious injuries. Also, consumer pressure washers may not delivery the pressure necessary for all jobs.

The cost of professional pressure washing costs between 8 and 80 cents per square foot, depending on local rates and the type of job. According to Costhelper.com, pressure washing the exterior of a 2,100-square-foot home can cost between $150 and $750. However, if the exterior of your house is clad in lead paint, check with your local health department before pressure washing.

Questions to ask before hiring a professional

Ask how much pressure, which is measured by pounds per inch and gallons per minute, will be used. Some professionals believe more is not necessarily better, especially on surfaces like wood, grout and roofing.
Ask if environmentally-friendly cleaning solutions are used.
Ask whether cold water or hot water is used. Cold water might not be as effective on extremely dirty of greasy areas.
Ask for estimates, references, insurance, bonding and licensure.
