Is There A Difference Between Power Washing And Pressure Washing?
The main difference is pressure washing uses average temperature water while power washing uses hot water to better break down contaminants. However, the terms are often erroneously used interchangeably. Softwashing is the type of exterior cleaning that deviates the most because it relies more on cleaning agents than pressurized water to get the job done.
Hot Water Or Cold Water Pressure Washing: Which Is Better?
As explained in the previous question, hot water, or power washing, can help break down contaminants easier. This helps save time for jobs that require a little more elbow grease.
Why Does My Home Need A Pressure Washing?
There are a number of reasons you should get pressure washing. For one thing, it makes your home look better and rids the exterior of pollutants that can be harmful to the siding and even your health. This increases the value while enhancing the curb appeal.
How Often Should I Wash My Home?
Overall, a good rule of thumb for the frequency with which you should wash the outside of your home is once a year. There are certain features that may require additional cleaning throughout the year, such as the deck or your roof.
Why Can't I DIY My Pressure Washing?
It's true that you can rent a power washer from your local big box home improvement store. It's also true that this type of work is best left to a professional, for a number of reasons, the main one being safety. However, you also need to be happy with the final results of the job and the only way to make that happen is to let a trained and experienced pro do it for you.
