1. How often do you need pressure washing services ?

Pressure washing experts suggest homeowners get services at least once a year. 

You may need your home washed if: One it has not been done yet this year, two if you have an hoa violation or three if the sides of your home look dirty. 

The benefits of getting your house washed regularly are the following: 

  1. Your home will last longer.
  2. Protects your home, children and pets from harmful exterior substances.
  3. Saves you money from home repairs and also saves money on your utility bill. 
  4. Gives your home an amazing curb appeal.
  5. Gives you peace of mind.   

Getting Pressure Washing Done Yearly

Together we can protect your homes exterior surfaces from all the outside elements that cause rot and decay over time. 

Pressure washing once a year reduces the cost of repairs from damages cause by mold, mildew and algae. Home owners must realize the price for house washing spread over a one year time period is less than $2 a day. Look at it from this way to make the purchase easy to digest because everyone should want their home in the best shape.

2. Does the Company have a valid Website presence and good reviews?

In 2021, the technology age, Businesses look legit and real when they have a professionally made website that is mobile friendly. 

Next the company’s social media should match their website to confirm to the customers/clients that this is a real business. These are the bare minimum for people to be comfortable doing business with a company. 

Finally every trustworthy business needs to have referrals. These recommendations can be any referrals from well known brands companies like google reviews, Facebook reviews, Yelp, and even word of mouth referrals from friends and family.  

Especially be sure to see pictures of their past work, the photos typically are on the business website and social media. 

3. Do they have liability insurance?

Does the company your hiring for your pressure washing service have insurance?

Companies with liability insurance have less accidents on the job than a company without insurance. 

This protects you and your property from any potential damages in addition protects you from any lawsuits if the technician gets hurt on your property.

You should certainly hire a business that is licensed and insured first because anyone that is licensed and insured will take better care of your home. And secondly they are most likely trained better than the average person on how to perform pressure washing work better than some one that is not licensed and insured. 

Although professionals are trained correctly, we are all humans, so accidents do happen. Moreover be sure to hire a company with liability insurance. 

  • Extra tip– Full-time professionals tend to have better job quality, customer service and a smooth overall job performance. Businesses that are full-time providers, are more experienced than someone that does pressure washing on the side. Resulting in less mistakes and a better overall experience. 

4. Do they provide residential pressure washing services ?

Pressure washing services

Ask if the business provides residential power washing services because it can help you save money.

Companies that only focus on commercial power washing or government power washing will be very expensive. Secondly they may not do residential work or little of it. Which means they are not specialized in home services, you’ll want a residential pressure washing pro not a commercial pressure washing pro.

There are some pressure washing companies that will never do residential house washing. Because they focus on commercial work, they only want to clean huge stores/buildings that pay thousands of dollars per job. So if they are willing to fit you in their schedule they will charge you an arm and a leg. 

To sum this up, search for businesses that specialize in residential power washing because this works in favor of both parties. In addition the biggest pressure washing company near you is not always the best fit if they are booked out for months.

5. What is the cost of house washing?

Pricing Never follow googles pricing range when you search for pressure washing cost. Because every quote is unique and google is taking information from all across the country near and far. Therefore the information on google for prices in your area tend to be inaccurate.

To find the average price in your area call 3-4 pressure washing companies near you and get quotes and the middle number between all of the estimates will give you your answer.

No home/property is the same so pressure washing costs tend to be unique. The obvious three levels of price range are high, middle and low and this is what they look like. 

High end companies charge from $700 and up for house washing on a 3,000 sq-ft home. 

Low end companies for the same size house charge around $200 and down for three reasons. One they are a good workers but desperate for work. Two because they are bad workers and don’t have a license or insurance which means they may cut corners. Or three and the most impossible, they are generous to do the work for cheap.

Exterior Cleaning with water has only three main techniques of doing so. All three methods of cleaning aim to produce the same results but in a different manner.

Pressure washing- is the use of spraying high pressure cold-water on surfaces to remove dirt, grime, mold, algae, moss, paint and more.

Power washing- uses high pressured hot water rather than cold water in order to clean.
