Having your home treated to a pressure washing is more important than you think.
At a spa, before any beauty enhancers are applied to one’s face, a pore-cleaning facial is called for before anything else is done.
Likewise, before we apply anything to your home’s exterior, we first give those walls, concrete, or deck a refreshing power wash.
Perhaps your home has not been cleansed in such a way for several years, if it has ever been put through this treatment.
Suffice to say, if this is the case, your home will immediately be much more vibrant than before with just a simple power wash.

What Surfaces Can Be Pressure Washed?
Pressure washing is a versatile cleaning method that can be used on a wide range of surfaces.
Here are some common surfaces that can be pressure washed:
- Exterior Walls: Pressure washing is effective for cleaning exterior walls made of various materials, including vinyl siding, brick, stucco, wood, and concrete.
- Driveways: Concrete and asphalt driveways can accumulate dirt, oil stains, and grime over time, which can be effectively removed with a pressure washer.
- Sidewalks and Walkways: Concrete and paver sidewalks and walkways benefit from pressure washing to remove dirt, algae, moss, and other contaminants.
- Decks and Patios: Wooden and composite decks, as well as concrete or stone patios, can be cleaned to remove mildew, mold, dirt, and discoloration.
- Fences: Wood, vinyl, and metal fences can be pressure washed to remove dirt, mold, mildew, and stains, revitalizing their appearance.
- Roofs: Pressure washing can be used on some roofing materials, such as asphalt shingles and metal, to remove moss, algae, and stains. However, caution should be exercised to prevent damage.
- Vehicles: Pressure washing can be used on cars, trucks, and other vehicles to remove dirt, road salt, and grime from the exterior. Lower pressure settings should be used to avoid damage to the paint and finish.
- Gutters: Pressure washing can effectively clean gutters and downspouts, removing leaves, debris, and blockages.
- Outdoor Furniture: Patio furniture made of plastic, metal, or wood can be pressure washed to remove dirt and grime.
- Pool Decks: The concrete or stone surfaces around swimming pools can be pressure washed to remove slippery algae and other contaminants.
- Boats and Docks: Boats and dock areas can be cleaned with pressure washing to remove barnacles, algae, and other marine growth.
- Garage Floors: Concrete garage floors can benefit from pressure washing to remove oil stains, grease, and dirt.
- Commercial and Industrial Equipment: Pressure washing is commonly used to clean heavy machinery, construction equipment, and industrial surfaces.
While pressure washing is effective on many surfaces, it's important to use the appropriate pressure settings and techniques for each type of surface. Using too much pressure or the wrong nozzle can cause damage.
Additionally, some delicate surfaces like certain types of roofing or painted surfaces may not be suitable for pressure washing, so it's essential to exercise caution or seek professional help.
