DIY Pressure Washing
Renting a pressure washer is not too expensive. The benefit of choosing the DIY route for power washing, if you decide to do so, is that you have full control over the operation and outcome of the project. You can easily find a standard residential pressure washer at a local home improvement store for rental.
Pressure washing your home can be time-consuming and potentially dangerous. For example, countless hard-to-reach areas on a typical home are difficult to clean with a standard pressure washer. In this situation, your first instinct will likely be to grab a ladder. Additionally, the high pressure can easily damage the structure of your vinyl siding.
Another common perception is that, in general, it is cheaper to pressure wash on your own. While that may be true for small and concentrated areas, there are several overlooked factors:
- Cost of equipment (pressure washer rental/purchase, fuel, etc.)
- How much soap/cleansers cost
- Cost of water used
- Opportunity cost
It’s critical to know that washing a house without professional-grade equipment can take days to complete. Even then, the results may not be what you expected. Simply put, the best and safest way to pressure wash a home is to use a soft wash method in combination with professional cleaners. DIY pressure washing makes it nearly impossible to accomplish that.
Professional Pressure Washing
Hiring pressure washing services in your area will yield the best results for your home. Reputable pressure washing companies have the experience and processes to clean your property safely and efficiently.
As previously mentioned, a standard residential pressure washer will not have the capability to reach high areas or effectively clean stubborn areas of a home. Conversely, a professional pressure washing company will have the equipment and technology to clean your entire home thoroughly. On top of that, here are a few other advantages of hiring an experienced professional company:
- A reputable company is fully insured in case of any unforeseen issues.
- All contaminants, like algae and mildew, will be removed from your home.
- You will have a single expense vs. shopping around for a long list of equipment.
- You do not have to spend your weekend or free-time pressure washing.
When hiring a company to wash your home, it is understandable to look for the lowest price. Just like in any industry, price is often directly correlated to quality. We encourage you not to focus solely on price but instead spend time researching a company’s credibility and reviews. This will prevent a situation where someone shows up with just a pickup truck and the same pressure washer you could have rented.
