What You Need to Know About Power Washing, Southampton, New York

Since the exterior of your home is exposed to rain, wildlife, and other elements, it can get dirty quickly. To preserve its look, you’ll need to have the surfaces cleaned regularly. Power washing is an effective and efficient way to make your home’s exterior look new again. Here’s what you need to know about this service. 

What Is Power Washing?

Power washing involves blasting water over a dirty surface. It’s especially effective against grime, mold, scat, and dust. It’s a popular alternative to washing the surfaces by hand—which is always time-consuming—or using a hose, which often isn’t powerful enough.

power washingPower washing equipment uses a motorized system. Water is sourced from a tank, drawn out through a hose and powerful pump, and then emitted via rotating nozzles. The rotation ensures a consistent application of water. The pressure of the water will be more than 2,000 PSI (pounds per square inch), but the technicians will closely regulate the equipment so they wash away grit without harming your siding. 

Why Hire a Professional?

While it is technically possible to handle power washing on your own, it’s always best to work with a professional. First, you’d have to rent the equipment and train yourself to use it, which will be time-consuming and can lead to mistakes. Second, because a delicate yet firm touch is needed to accomplish the cleaning without causing damage, it’s a difficult job for someone with little experience to master.

The process is not as simple as pressing a button; you will need to strategically treat moldy and grimy areas to remove any eyesores. Finally, a professional will know exactly what equipment is needed, have the knowledge to clean difficult-to-reach spots, and use highly effective industrial equipment.
