So you’ve researched all night about pressure washing and decided you want to try it for yourself. You’re thinking: “Can I D.I.Y this?” or “What are the risks?” If you want the job done safely and done right the first time, make sure to consult your local exterior cleaning expert!
Here are some common mistakes a first-timer might make that you want to avoid:
You can waste time.
As someone who works all of the time, you want to spend your weekends relaxing. Your first-time pressure washing, you can end up spending way too much time cleaning the outside of your home. An all-day project for you could be completed in just a few short hours by a professional exterior cleaning company. This benefits you because you know the job is getting done in a timely manner, so you don’t have to waste so much time doing it or worrying about it yourself. You want your time to be spent with your family, not outside stressing about if you missed a spot.
You can cause damage.
Obviously pressure washing uses high-pressure water. Did you know that the pressure could be too high? Different materials and surfaces all call for different intensities of pressure. Things such as wood panels, siding, and old windows all should be carefully treated in a way that’s safe for their surface.
Spending all of that time to make your home look great shouldn’t have the outcome of actually breaking down your home. These are problems experts know how to avoid and have learned through their years of pressure washing experience. As a professional, they know if pressure washing is right for your project or not. If not, they would know if soft washing may be the route you should take for your exterior clean.
You can end up wasting money.
Something to also consider is paying for potential damages you may cause if you do the pressure washing job wrong. Whether it be a broken window or chipped away cement, it’s a cost you wouldn’t have if you had gone with a professional.
Trying out pressure washing by yourself requires a lot of time and effort, and can cost a chunk of change. Make sure to leave it to the experts. Contact us at Beacon Cleaning to get the clean you’re looking for!
