FAQs

What is power washing?

Power washing, or pressure washing is cleaning, using controlled high pressure water spray. The pressurized water is created with specially designed pumps, and is extremely powerful. Power washing can be used on cement to remove mold, gum, oil, and other dirt stains. Treated lumber decks can be restored to looking almost new. House siding can be cleaned, removing pollution, mildew, and other grime.

Why shouldn't I just buy or rent a pressure washer and do it myself?

There are a few reasons... Professional level pressure washing equipment will have a much higher pressure output. Professionals have the knowledge, training, experience and know how. to use the equipment properly, so there is no damage to your property. (Or yourself. A professional-quality pressure washer is powerful enough to actually cut a 2x4 into pieces). Without experience, a DIY'er can easily cause damage or injury. With that said, hiring a pro will most certainly save you time and money in the long run, and give you better results.

What are those black streaks on my roof?

Those black marks are roof algae. They usually appear first on north slopes of your roof where moisture is more apt to accumulate. Roof algae can leave black streaks.
