Power Washing Services

If mold, mildew and dirt are making your home look, well, not so fresh, it may be time to book a professional power washing service. If your driveway is stained by leaf tannins, mold or red clay—you guessed it, better book a power washing appointment!

Calling a pro is a great first step, but there are precautions you need to take to prepare for power washing services.

Lock all your doors and windows

Water will come in through any opening it can, so make sure your home is secure. This goes for garage doors, storm doors and screen doors, too.

Move any items that might be in the way

This includes grills, potted plants, patio furniture and any tools you might have lying about. This step is especially important if you’re planning to have your patio or driveway power washed.

Secure your electrical outlets

Water and electricity don’t mix, so make sure to unplug all extension cords and close outlet covers. Exterior outlets are easy to overlook, so don’t make this mistake!

Park your car somewhere else

Power washing produces an overspray of water that could carry paint, dirt, debris and other things you don’t want anywhere near your car.

Keep children and pets away

The spray of water from power washing is powerful enough to break the skin and cause serious injury, so make sure Junior and Fido are nowhere near.
