3 Reasons You Shouldn't DIY Pressure Wash Your Home
Hundreds of online articles give advice on how to pressure wash your home without hiring a professional pressure washing contractor. The problem with taking this task on without the proper training is that pressure washing is a dangerous project. Without knowledge and experience, you're putting yourself and your home in the Woodlands at risk. Below, our experts from City Cleanz list the top three reasons you shouldn't DIY pressure wash your home.
1. Home Surface Damage
Pressure washing is a great way to clean dirt, grime, and other contaminants off your outdoor surfaces. But one of the most important aspects of pressure washing is choosing the water pressure and proper attachment for each project. DIY pressure washers often don't know the dangers of using high water pressure on a fragile surface.
The siding on your home is a fragile surface. Because of this, utilizing high water pressures when engaging in house washing can cause breakage, cracking, and interior structural damage to your home. This is why professional pressure washing companies like City Cleanz use low-pressure washing options during our house washing services.
Pressure washing experts are trained to assess each surface that is being cleaned to ensure the proper pressure and pressure washing tip are being used in a project to avoid damaging the exterior of your home.
2. Save You Time
Pressure washing might be one of the fastest options for cleaning your home, but only if you're an experienced pressure washing technician. For DIY pressure washers, the process can last days as you figure out how to use your pressure washing machine, handle the machinery, what detergents you might need for your project, and gather supplies.
The benefit of hiring a pressure washing contractor is that the technicians assigned to your project are already trained in techniques and proper methods for whatever service it is they're providing you. We also have all the right cleaning equipment, detergents, and technicians, so you don't have to spend your time learning how to pressure wash from scratch.
3. Saving You Money
Perhaps the most important reason to hire a professional pressure washing company is that it will save you money. DIYers often work under the assumption that doing the work themselves will save them money in the long run. However, in the case of pressure washing, acquiring the pressure washing machine, detergents, and other equipment necessary to finish your project is more expensive than hiring a company that outfits its technicians with all required equipment.
Not only are you paying for the equipment to wash your home, but you're also paying for a trained technician with years of experience at their back.
Another great benefit to hiring a professional contractor is that contractors have insurance. If a mistake happens and there's damage to your siding after a professional house washing, the company you're working with will have insurance to cover damages.
All-in-all, hiring a professional pressure washing company for your house washing project is cheaper, safer, and less time-consuming than trying a DIY job. Before you try DIY pressure washing, call and talk to the experts at City Cleanz in The Woodlands to learn why we're the best option for your next project.
