- Q: I already own a pressure washer, why should I hire Pressure Pro, I can surely do it cheaper?
- A: Pressure washing is more than just renting or buying a unit from a hardware store. The specialized equipment and techniques we use can provide safe and effective cleaning. We wash siding with our soft wash (low pressure) system, as well as specialty detergent, to prevent damage to your property. Our equipment flows over double the water of most homeowner pressure washing units. It may seem like a financial investment to hire a professional, but think of the potential costs if you have to repair or replace siding you may accidentally damage!
- Q: I had somebody tell me that they will wash my house for $99
- A: Beware of the “Two guys in a truck” that will approach you with a rock bottom price. Chances are they aren’t insured and could actually cause damage to your property. We not only get the job done safely, we get it done right. Our highly trained and certified staff use the latest and most effective techniques. Excellence is our pledge. We guarantee your satisfaction with all the work we do.
- Q: There is a chalky residue on my siding. What is it?
- A: To get scientific, “oxidation is defined as the interaction between oxygen molecules and all the different substances they may contact, from metal to living tissue.”1 You see oxidation all the time, whether it's in the form of rust, an apple browning, or a copper fountain turning green. Oxidation can be an issue for home owners since the outermost layer of paint or vinyl begins to break down as it is exposed to oxygen and leaves it vulnerable to further damage by nature's elements.
- Q: How does Pressure Pro remove the oxidation?
- A: A specialty chemical is hand brushed onto your siding to agitate the surface and remove the unsightly “chalk.” This process is very labor intensive, and can take 2-3 times longer than a conventional house wash. Once heavy deposits are removed, annual or bi-annual cleanings will prevent oxidation build up.
