Other Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions. However, should you have any other questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us.

 

  • How often should I power wash my property?

    Most customers power wash their property every year or two. However, you can power wash the exterior of your property whenever you feel it looks dingy or dirty. Often, you will notice moss and  mold on the north side of the structure first.

  • Will power washing hurt or damage plants, shrubs, or flowers?

    No, the chemicals we use are biodegradable and environmentally friendly. In addition, we will take care not to step on or damage plants, shrubs, and flowers. We can also protect garden areas with plastic when necessary, or requested, to provide you with additional peace of mind.

  • Do I need to move lawn or patio furniture?

    No, we are usually able to work around most furniture and barbecues. If anything needs to be moved, we will move it and then put it back before we leave.

  • Do I need to move or cover air conditioners?

    No, it is not necessary to move or cover your air conditioners.

  • Do I need to remove window screens?

    No, it is not necessary to remove your window screens. However, we do ask that all windows are locked shut to assure water does not get into the structure.

  • Will water cause problems if it gets under siding or soffits?

    The siding used on homes and office buildings is overlapping and interlocks with each other, so no water get underneath or behind it. There are also leak holes underneath the siding that allow moisture to escape. When cleaned properly this moisture is minimal.

  • Will water get behind windows and doors?

    No, water should not get behind windows and doors unless they are not locked shut. However, if the areas around the windows and doors are very dirty, a small amount of water may get in — but it would not be enough to cause damage.

  • How long does it usually take to clean an average size home or small office building?

    Since we only use the best industrial strength cleaning products, hot water, and the appropriate water pressure cleaning an average sized home or office building should not take longer than a few hours.

  • What is the best time of year to power wash exterior structures?

    Since we only use hot water when we power wash, we can clean property any time of the year. However, it is best perform exterior building restoration when temperatures are above 50 degrees. This is because cleaners often lose their effectiveness in cold weather. We can, however, remove ice dams during the winter months with no damage to roof shingles and gutters.

  • Do I need to be present when you power wash my property?

    No, it is not necessary for you to stay at the property site. Everything we need we bring with us, and there is no reason for us to enter your home or office building at any time. So, please leave your property locked.

  • How do I pay for your service when the job is finished?

    Most customers just put their check in a sealed envelop and tape it to the front door. However, we can also come back to pick up your payment once you have had the chance to inspect the job. In addition to personal checks and cash, we also accept credit card payments from MasterCard, Visa, and American Express as well as PayPal.

  • What should I do on the day my property is scheduled to be power washed?

    Please make sure that all windows and doors are locked shut. If we are not supplying the water, be sure that at least one outdoor faucet is turned on. Then relax, we’ll take care of the rest.
