Many people begin their hunt for a good powerwasher by researching on their own. After just a few minutes, many people discover that powerwashing is a bit more complicated than they thought. From turbo nozzles to surface cleaners, there is more to it than what meets the eye. Professional powerwashers make it look easy so many people assume that they can do it themselves. Before you run out and rent or buy a powerwasher there are a few things you should know.
Many people think the words Powerwash and Pressure Wash are interchangeable. However, in reality, they are completely different. Pressure washing uses cold water and high pressure and is what most companies and homeowners. High pressure can cause damage to whatever is being cleaned, this is not the ideal solution. We perform powerwashing, which is far superior because this uses low pressure and hot water with cleaners and detergents. Powerwashing is gentler, yet more effective compared to pressure washing.
With our cleaners and detergents our gentle softwash process will be the safest way to clean your home. Using high pressure and cold water can actually spread the moss, mildew, and algae. Cleaning this way simply removes the top layer of moss/mildew/algae; however, with hot water and our cleaning solutions, we are actually killing all of those spores. This helps prevent them from coming back. Softwashing extends the life of paint and brightens up fences, porches, driveways, and sidewalks. In addition, it keeps everything looking cleaner for a longer period of time.
Finding the right balance of water pressure, heat, and cleaners takes years of experience. Hiring an inexperienced powerwasher may be cheap at first but fixing the damage they can cause may end up costing more in the long run. Experienced and professional powerwashers know how different materials and surfaces must be cleaned to ensure no damage will occur and do an effective job. Knowledge and experience play a crucial role in performing a great powerwashing job.
Powerwashing is said to be the best return on investment when it comes to home care since it is relatively inexpensive and brings amazing results. If you're considering selling your house, the few hundred dollars you'll spending powerwashing your home will ensure thousands more when you sell it.
