What Is Pressure Washing?
Power wash decks Pressure washing is the growing application of high pressure water spray. This spray is a hundred times more powerful than the typical garden hose. On concrete it is used to remove unsightly mold and other dirt stains. Wooden decks are returned to the look of new wood, void of graying and fatigued finishes.

Cleaning Vinyl Siding – Pressure Washing Houses
Cleaning vinyl siding is one of the easiest types of pressure washing projects but steps should be taken to ensure the work lasts for an extended period of time. A misconception about pressure washing houses covered with vinyl siding is that a simple cleansing is all that’s required. This is not true. If your main reason for cleaning the house is to remove mildew, then you will soon see that the simple wash was only a temporary solution as the mildew will usually return within a few months, especially in warm, damp weather. To keep the siding looking new for longer periods of time, a wax mix should be added to the cleaning process which will help the vinyl resist the growth of mildew as well as reduce the amount of dirt that sticks to the siding. It will also protect the vinyl siding from the elements of nature like applying wax will protect the finish of your car.
Brick Cleaning – Pressure Washing Brick and Mortar
The rough nature of these materials makes it easy for dirt and mildew to form on the surface and it contributes to creating a very tedious job. High pressure and professional strength cleaners for brick and mortar must be used to adequately remove the dirt and the stains imbedded into the pores and the joints. Non-commercial pressure washers won’t remove built-up dirt and grime very well and the work rate of this level of equipment will require many hours of your time to complete a whole house washing. This is where professional brick cleaners and equipment make the difference and make it easier to achieve great results.
