Whether you’re looking to sell your home or eliminate grime from your property, a solid pressure washing can deliver lasting results. Of course, this knowledge can only take you so far if you’re not careful about who you trust to wash your property. Fortunately, we know a thing or two about what makes a reliable pressure washer!

Read on and pick up some quality practices you can employ today to find an experienced professional for your next pressure washing.

Find Out How Long They’ve Been Working

Pressure washing employs the use of chemicals and pressurized water to eliminate contaminants like mold, mildew, and dust. While the treatment itself may be a rejuvenating, if left in the hands of an ill-equipped “specialist”, it can easily cause damage to your home in the form of stripped paint and damaged siding.

Always make sure the team you’ve elected to work with is experienced and trained to perform the service they are providing you. More often than not, a quick background check on the history of their company will tell you everything you need to know.

Ask How Long it Will Take

A lot can be derived from a professional’s answer to this question. On average, a 2000 square foot home should take around 1-2 hours to completely wash. Of course, not every home is of the same size and build so these numbers can vary. However, if your pressure washer has an outlandish answer like “a few days” or “4-5 hours”, that can be cause for concern. Always make sure you have a core understanding of what the pressure washing process entails so you can catch red flag signs such as these.

Do Your Research

There’s a reason we call this the age of information! All you need to know about a service provider or team is at your beck and call. That being said, always make sure you are looking up reviews and researching your prospective power washer’s approach towards customer satisfaction. Even the best team in your area won’t amount to much if they don’t treat you or your home with respect.


Don’t leave your all too important property in the hands of those who won’t treat it with due diligence and professionalism. Always do your homework and ensure you find a team that values your business and will show that through their professional service!
