Frequently Asked Questions

Pressure washing your residential or commercial property is an important step in maintaining your property by cleaning the exterior surfaces of your home or residential property.  Routine pressure washing preserves the appearance and curb appeal of the property.  It cleans away dirt and grime, mold and mildew from your roof, gutters, exterior walls, deck, driveway, sidewalks, lanai pool deck, fencing as well as any paver surface leaving the surface clean, crisp and looking years newer.

If you’re new to home or commercial property ownership or have no experience with pressure washing, below are the answers to our most frequently asked questions.

Power washing, or pressure washing, is the application of a high pressure water spray to surfaces that need cleaned.

It is used on concrete to remove mold, gum, mold, mildew and dirt stains. Typically most surfaces that are not concrete are soft washed.  High pressure can cause damage when not used properly. For this reason it is best to hire a professional to make sure that everything is used with the right amount of pressure and the correct surface pretreatment is performed.

A concrete surface will vary on how often it needs to be cleaned based on a couple variables. How much sunlight does the area receive daily? How much rainfall does it receive? What is the drainage like? Typically most areas will require a good cleaning once a year. This will include a chemical application or a bio safe alternative that will not harm your exterior paint, bushes, trees and grass, then a high pressure cleaning after.  However, some areas as long as that area is kept clean, will require only a chemical cleaning twice a year to stay clean.

Absolutely, here in SWFL we get caught in the rain once in a while. There are safety precautions you must take, power washing in a light to medium rain can speed up and enhance the power washing process. Why? Rain allows power washing pretreatment to sit on exterior surfaces without drying.  We do not pressure wash during heavy rain or thunderstorms.

The best way to prevent pavers from getting dirty, or looking worn, is having the pavers professionally cleaned and sealed. Every 3 to 5 years, you should hire a professional pressure washing service to pressure wash and seal your pavers, and they will last longer and look like new!

Absolutely! Regular cleaning and pressure washing your gutters not only makes them look and function like new, but it prevents damage not only to your gutters, but prevents damage to your home due to clogged gutters.

The short answer is yes, however it can be a bad idea.  High pressure can cause a lot of damage to surfaces. The chemicals used can also damage paint and kill plants. Wood is extremely sensitive to pressure washing and should always be cleaned by a professional. Using too much pressure, or the wrong chemicals, or improper dilutions WILL cause damage to the surface and any plant or paint the chemical comes into contact with.   If you are not experienced, it’s best to leave the pressure washing to the professional.

After pressure washing your house, you have to wait for it to fully dry before you can paint it. This waiting time can be anywhere from 24 hours to 3 days depending on the amount of moisture in the air and the amount of direct sun.   All surfaces should be allowed to fully dry prior to painting the surface. Pressure washing your home isn’t for beginners.

In general, houses should be power washed at least once a year.  Luckily, in SWFL, we don’t have to worry about freezing temperatures making anytime of the year a great time to brighten up the exterior surfaces of your home.
