In a previous post, we highlighted some useful tips for those interested in working with a professional pressure washing service. However, many may find themselves asking, “Why hire a team when I can wash my property on my own?” After all, all of the necessary equipment can easily be rented so there’s no stopping the adamant do-it-yourselfer from rolling up their sleeves and getting to work!
While the sentiment of wanting to work on one’s own property is admirable, we’re here to explain why it might not be the smartest option available to you. Read on for a few reasons we feel a pressure washing should be left to the professionals and make an educated decision before that next spring cleaning.
No Collateral Damage
Pressure washers, while available to the public through renting, require an experienced hand to operate well. From the amount of pressure and chemicals used to the time taken to clean each fixture of the home, a pressure washing involves a number of variables the washer needs to keep in mind. Simply washing for too long or using an overly powerful cleaning solution can actually strip away layers of your home, making it prone to quicker degradation after the wash has concluded.
Needless to say, a professional pressure washer is more than experienced in properly washing houses, siding, decks, and more and can put that experience to work towards a beautiful clean worthy of your home!
No Environmental Damage
Like we mentioned before, pressure washing involves stripping away dangerous pollutants such as mold and mildew. While this may be great for your home, it could spell disaster for the surrounding neighborhood if performed by unskilled hands. A strong pressure washing can strip away those toxins and spread them to nearby water sources and homes. A clean home is no excuse to endanger yourself or those around you. A professional pressure washing team can ensure a pristine home doesn’t come at that hefty of a cost.
A Guaranteed Clean
Finally, a pressure cleaning performed by an expert is simply the best bang for your buck you could afford! If you’re already paying the rental fees for a pressure washing machine, the last thing you want is for your home to still be littered in mold, dust, and grime. Working with a professional team ensures you don’t eat the cost of renting a machine, realizing it didn’t work out as planned, and THEN hiring an expert.
Self-reliance and ingenuity are beautiful qualities but each has their place and time. When the time comes to clean your home with a pressure or power washing, it helps to be able to reach out to the pros who can save you time, stress, injury, and money!
