Pressure Washing - What To Look For When Choosing the Right Company

Pressure washing is great way to keep mold and algae off the walls and other areas around your home. If not contained, mold and algae can cause damage to your home over time. Especially on the roof where black mold and algae can get into the shingles over time and even reduce the cooling efficiency of your home. The sun-reflective properties of the shingles will be diminished over time as the mold works its way into the shingles thus causing them to break down quicker. On average, algae and heavy black mold can reduce  the shingle life of your home for up to ten years.

When choosing the right pressure washing company to do work on your home there a few things to consider. First of all make sure you chose a reputable company because an inexperience company can potentially cause serious damage to your home. For example when cleaning vinyl siding on your home then it's best to only use a low pressure to clean the siding for the purpose of preventing water from getting behind the siding and causing serious mold damage to your home. Often companies will use heavy pressure in order to do the job faster without any regard to the care of your home.

Inexperience companies also may use the wrong chemicals which can potentially cause discoloration to the material of your home. For example chlorine can in some cases change the actual color of stucco. Also some companies can be careless with the use of chemicals and cause damage to the plants and landscape in the surrounding area. If strong chemicals are used then make sure they know the plants and landscape area needs to stay unharmed.

When deciding on a company also make sure the company has business insurance so in case something goes wrong they will be able to afford to pay for the damages. If you are attempting to pressure wash your home on your own make sure you do research and are familiar with your equipment before attempting to do so. There is more to pressure washing than most people think and as previously mentioned there is more than one way to cause serious damages to your home.
