Frequently Asked Questions for Pressure Washing

What is pressure washing?

Pressure washing, also known as power washing, is a cleaning method that uses high-pressure water spray to remove dirt, grime, mold, mildew, and other contaminants from surfaces such as buildings, driveways, patios, decks, and vehicles.

Is pressure washing safe for all surfaces?

While pressure washing is safe for many surfaces, some materials require special care to avoid damage.

Our trained technicians assess each job to determine the safest and most effective cleaning method.

The frequency of pressure washing depends on various factors, including the climate, the amount of rainfall, and the level of exposure to dirt and pollutants.
