Debunking 5 Myths About Pressure Washing

Debunking 5 pressure wash myths

There are many myths that can circulate about pressure washing, and as a homeowner, it's crucial that you are able to separate these myths from facts. That's why we've compiled five of the most common myths and provided the truth behind them below.

If you'd like to know more about the truth behind these common pressure washing myths, please call us today at 205-213-5514.

Myth: Pressure Washing Is Fine For Any Surface

Truth: While pressure washing is a great way to remove gunk and grime from a variety of surfaces such as stone or concrete, it doesn't work on everything. For more delicate areas, such as shingles or vinyl siding, we often employ a different tactic known as soft washing, also sometimes called no pressure or low pressure washing. This involves lower water pressure combined with special soaps and detergents in order to eradicate grime from sensitive surfaces.

Myth: Soft Washing Soaps Are Dangerous

Truth: As mentioned previously, we use special soaps for our soft washing methods. Although these soaps are powerful enough to eat away at even the most stubborn grime and gunk, they won't harm the environment or your property because they are eco-friendly.

Myth: Pressure Washing Is Only Good For Large Properties

Truth: You may be hesitant to hire a pressure washing company because you think it's only necessary for larger properties like estates or business parks. The fact of the matter is that any-sized property can benefit from a thorough pressure washing. Whether you have a small, one-floor rancher, or a sprawling multi-story building, you can take advantage of our services.

Myth: I Can Do My Own Pressure Washing

Truth: Many homeowners assume they can do their own pressure washing with a pressure washer they bought at the local home improvement store. However, it can actually be dangerous or difficult trying to handle your own pressure washing tasks, especially when it comes to roof cleaning or gutter cleaning. It's much safer and more effective if you hire a specialist, such as Tek Pressure Washing, to do it instead.

Myth: Pressure Washing Is Too Expensive

Truth: If money is your biggest roadblock when it comes to hiring a pressure washing company, then you'll be happy to know that it's not that expensive. Pressure washing your home can increase your curb appeal and prolong your home's overall lifespan, meaning you won't need to spend as much money on other upkeep or repairs.
