What is pressure washing?

Does your home look a little worse for wear? The appearance of your home reflects a great deal on you. The state of the exterior of your home affects the curb appeal of your property and therefore its value. However, many times all your property needs is a good clean. Pressure cleaning can help to breathe life into your property. It can make the exterior surfaces of your property look brighter and thus enhance the curb appeal of your home. It also gets rid of the dirt and grime accumulated on surfaces. This helps protect surfaces from damage. Below, we discuss exactly what house pressure washing is.

What is Pressure cleaning?

Pressure cleaning is cleaning surfaces using a pressurized jet of water. The water doesn’t have to be heated. You can use cool water and still get great results. The pressurized jet of water helps to loosen dirt and grime on surfaces. Different pressure settings may be used when ranging from very low pressure (as is the case for soft washing) to very high pressure.

There are instances when pressure washing services will add cleaning agents to the water being used. This helps when dealing with badly stained surfaces or surfaces that have mold and mildew.

How Often Do Most Surfaces Need to Be Pressure Washed?

Pressure washing is one of the best ways to get rid of tough stains and brighten exterior surfaces on a property. The jets of water will blow off the dirt and grime and refresh the surface. However, when used too often, it can damage surfaces. We recommend limiting pressure washing of most surfaces of your home to once a year. You can clean some surfaces twice a year such as driveways. However, this should only be the case when the surfaces are extremely dirty.

What’s The Difference Between Pressure and Power Washing?

These terms are often used interchangeably. However, professionals like to make a distinction between the two. When comparing a power washer vs pressure washer, the distinction between the two is in the use of a heating element. While both machines are able to produce a high-pressure jet of water, the power washer uses a heating element to heat the water and create a jet of steam or very hot water to get rid of dirt on the surface. Power washing is highly effective for getting rid of especially stubborn stains. It is effective for getting rid of mold, mildew, oil, gum, grease and other stains on driveways, patios and other outdoor surfaces.
