Painless Pressure Washing Prep

Painless Pressure Washing Prep

Professional pressure washing restores your home's siding, fencing, deck, and driveway to increase curb appeal; removes pollen and airborne pathogens that can cause your family discomfort; and protects exterior surfaces from damaging mold, fungi, and algae. Oil spills and fungus growth can cause slip and fall hazards, and roadkill and animal droppings are always unwanted on driveways and require professional intervention.

When you're ready to hire a professional pressure washing contractor for house washing, driveway cleaning, or deck cleaning, there are a few considerations and steps you can take prior to the job to ensure a quick, painless, flawless job. Peak Performance Pressure Washing makes exterior cleaning as quick, painless, and affordable as possible for you, but a little proactive painless pressure washing prep can help us do the job even more safely and efficiently.

Preplan For Pets And Children

Pressure washing can be loud and invasive for sensitive children and pets. The motor of the pressure washing machine and the water hitting the various exterior surfaces can be disturbing for some children and animals. Making arrangements to have them somewhere off the property during the pressure washing process can help avoid potential stress for the whole family.

Clear Walkways, Driveways, And Sides Of House And Property

Before your pressure washing project begins, take the time to clear away any vehicles, toys, lawn equipment, or other items you may have in the driveway or scattered around your property. This lets the pressure washing technicians immediately begin applying pre-treatment solutions to surfaces upon arrival and allows the pre-soaking process to begin dissolving grime and organic growth.

Secure Windows And Doors And Check Seals

Check that all of your windows are completely closed and properly caulked to prevent any seepage inside. Also, check doorways to ensure that the tops and bottoms of the doors are sealing properly in the door frames. On the day of the scheduled pressure washing project, lock the windows and doors for extra protection.

Move Items From The Immediate Work Area

Vehicles, patio furniture, garden tools, outdoor grills, bicycles, skateboards, and other similar items should be moved away from the work area or covered securely in waterproof plastic.

Cover Exposed Electrical Outlets And Panels

Water and electricity don't mix, so be sure to remove or cover anything connected to an electrical power source in the outdoor work area. Outdoor security panels, sound systems and speakers, and other outdoor electronics should be securely covered in addition to any outdoor wall outlets to avert damage or electrical issues.

Prepare Plants, Lawn, And Landscaping

Even though most professional pressure washing professionals use chemicals that won't harm plants and greenery, it's best to store potted plants in a garage or storage building and away from the pressure washing work surfaces. Cover what flora cannot be moved with sturdy plastic sheeting. Peak Performance Pressure Washing uses only biodegradable, eco-friendly chemicals, but it's always best to play it as safe as possible by covering or moving particularly delicate or important plants.
