Why Should I Hire a Green Professional for Power Washing?


Summer is just about here and as we focus on the exterior of our home and business we begin to notice just how hard winter dirt and grime has affected the curb appeal. As you consider the Benefits of Power Washing, you might consider taking on this seemingly easy task yourself. Before you run out to the hardware store, take a moment and consider exactly what is involved. Saving a bit of money now might prove costly later!

Why You Should Hire a Green Professional for Power Washing:

  • Consumer grade power washers are not capable of providing the same output as professional power washers. Doing this job yourself will not produce the same results as a professional, costing you time and money.
  • A green power washing company uses only hot/cold water and steam, bio-degradable chemicals and wash water recovery systems. Environmentally safe solutions and state-of-the-art equipment work together to tackle whatever build up your home or business’s exterior and property have accumulated such as gum, oil residue, grease, rust, graffiti, mold.
  • An inexperienced individual can easily cause damage to the surface they are attempting to clean with the power washer and/or toxic consumer chemicals.
  • Less chance of damage to your windows and siding (check how the company deals with potential damage)
  • Safety. Do you really want to hop up on a ladder for hours at a time?
  • Time and convenience. Time is money. What might take you an entire weekend (or longer) will take a professional a few hours, producing a much cleaner result.

3 Benefits of Power Washing

The benefits of power washing

Power washing is a great way to keep pollutants such as mold, carbon, mildew, dirt, rust stains, fungus, algae and others elements from harming the exterior of your home or place of business. Having your property pressure washed on a yearly basis is not only visually appealing to your customers and visitors, it even increases its value because of improved curb appeal.  The benefits of power washing are not just on the surface.  Pollutants such as mold and mildew, when left alone, can grow and creep its way into your home causing health problems for some individuals. This is why it is very important to keep your structures clean by pressure washing them clean at least once a year.

Another important factor to consider when power washing your home or business are your windows. Dirty windows not only reduce your home’s curb appeal but also can do damage to your windows over time. Mineral deposit stains from sprinklers, rain and snow, as well as other sources, can leave permanent marks on windows if not cleaned properly and regularly.

Dirty windows let in less natural light and can actually be depressing, harming the moral of your employee’s work environment. As we know, a clean environment is always much better to work in and research has shown that personnel are a lot more productive in a clean setting.  In addition, dirty windows can make your business look old and less appealing to customers, reducing foot traffic.
