Choosing a Power Washing Company


The appearance of the exterior of your home or business speaks volumes about you and your business. Regular power washing and soft washing are the best ways to boost curb appeal. It is extremely important to choose the right power washing company. Here are some tips on choosing a power washing company.


1. Licensed and Insured


The most crucial step is choosing a company you are going to settle with that is license and insured. A service provider that is licensed and insured shows a level of professionalism. Although rare, incidents and accidents can happen during these kinds of projects. Protect yourself and your property by confirming the contractor is insured to avoid any liabilities.


2. Equipment Used

We have all seen freshly pressure washed driveways with lines or swirl marks. This is due to inexperienced individuals using consumer grade equipment. Deep cleaning calls for professional-grade power equipment that cannot be bought at your local hardware store.

Plus, a company that has invested in top-quality equipment is looking to get top quality results. On the other hand, a company that does not have high end equipment will do a sub-par job.


3. Ask for References and Look up Reviews

Ask around for reviews about your potential contractor from people who have worked with them in the past. You can usually find reviews on google, Facebook, or the companies website. Obviously a power washing company with more positive reviews is best while one with several complaints is a big no.


4. Price

Different contractors offer different price ranges depending on various factors including the size of the project, drainage, availability of water, etc. Although going with the $99 guy is tempting, you are going to get $99 results. You should choose someone whose price range is within your budget. If you receive an estimate that is above your budget do not be afraid to ask the contractor if there is anything that can be done to lower the price. Just remember going cheap can turn out to be expensive in the long run.
