The following is a list of common questions we have encountered while on the job:
What is power washing?
Power washing, or pressure washing, is the growing application of high pressure water spray. Produced by specially designed pumps, this spray is a hundred times more powerful than the typical garden hose. On concrete it is used to remove unsightly mold, bubble gum, and other dirt stains. Wooden decks are returned to the look of new wood, void of graying and fatigued finishes. And on houses, the appearance of siding (namely aluminum and vinyl) is greatly improved by removing pollution, mildew, and other signs of neglect.
How often should I have power washing done?
Yearly is a good interval, but it does depend on the surface. Most customers have low-maintenance decks, patios, and siding, so we recommend at least once annually. Bubbles Power Washing will help you to figure out your maintenance schedule and cleaning needs.
Can’t I just do power washing myself?
The difference between DIY and professional is in the capability of the equipment and the expertise of trained pressure washers. Most rental power washing equipment have the same PSI (pounds per square inch) as commercial-grade equipment, but the volume of water that they can hold is minimal. This results in projects that can take days instead of hours, wasting your time and money.
Most DIY power washers also do not realize that a proper and thorough cleaning is not always a result of high pressure. Because of this, an untrained power washer may use a water pressure setting that is too high and too close to the surface being cleaned, which often results in damaged screens, chipped painting, and ruined siding. Professional power washers have the equipment and training to recognize appropriate pressure and distance for each project in order to protect your home from damage.
Will high pressure damage my home?
All pressure washing services is capable of producing high pressure output, but most cleaning is done at low pressure. Our pressure washers are sure to examine the type of surface they are power washing to make sure that the right amount of pressure is used.
Do you break tiles?
Most roofs can be easily and safely walked on when using the proper techniques. We wouldn’t recommend the average person try it themselves. Untrained attempts could cause breakage. There are only a few types of tiles we cannot walk on – lightweight, hand-made Mexican tiles would be one example. But don’t worry, we can still accommodate you with our telescopic poles.
