If your home is about to receive its first power washing service, you may be wondering what you can do before, during, and after the service to help. It is important to ensure that you are properly prepared before the service and know exactly what to do after. Follow along with this blog to read about your role throughout the entire process!


Pressure washing, when done by a professional, takes a little bit of preparation on your part. You are in charge of deciding what gets washed down and what doesn’t; meaning that before your service begins, you should move and cover up things you don’t want to get wet. Whether it be patio furniture or your potted plants, get them covered or to a safe spot. Another imperative thing you need to do is check all openings into your home. Make sure every entrance is locked and sealed. You don’t want any water coming in through open windows and doors! Only the essential and non-fragile things should be washed.


This part may go without saying, but you should always make an effort to stay out of the way during the service. Gather up your children and pets and remain inside the house. While you are receiving the service, the last thing your professional pressure washer wants to worry about is accidentally hitting you or your loved ones. The power of a pressure washer is very, very strong. There is a good chance that an unsuspecting hit from the hose could lead to broken skin.


Whether you were just looking for a cleaning or had plans following the wash, there are some things to keep in mind. It may be worth looking into a sealer for your concrete as it can keep your driveway looking brand new for much longer, but keep in mind that your home is going to need a bit of time to completely dry. You don’t want a wet home to take away from the effects of a good sealer or even a fresh coat of paint. Allow your home time to dry for a good three days, just to be safe; then you are free, in fact encouraged, to seal and paint away!


The best part about hiring a professional to come and pressure wash your home is the little amount of effort on your part. While there are a few key things to keep in mind before, during, and after the wash, overall it is a pretty simple process.
