Preparing Your Home for Pressure Washing

 

Pressure washing is an excellent way to get your home looking like new. However, pressure washing does use water, which means the potential exists for water damage if you don’t adequately prepare.

Most pressure washing specialists will give you a list of things to do before they arrive. By following these instructions, you can ensure that the process of pressure washing is smooth and stress-free. Here are some ways in which our clients get their homes ready before our Propel Pressure Cleaning team starts the pressure washing process.

Secure All Openings

Take the time to identify any potential entry spots for water into your home. Keep all your doors and windows locked, and if they’re not water-tight, seal them with towels to catch any stray moisture.

Many people forget about cracks when identifying openings. Pressure cleaning uses extremely high water pressure, which can force water into a wall through even the smallest crack. We don’t expect you to seal every crack on your property, but do let us know of any problem areas. We’ll take special care in that area to avoid any potential issues.

Store Loose or Portable Items

If you have patio furniture or any other loose items outside, take them inside if you don’t want the items to get wet and dirty. Pressure cleaning will often shake loose old paint and debris, which can damage your items if you leave them outside.

The same goes for cars. If we’re washing your driveway, try to park your car somewhere far away from the spray. If you have any fixed items that you want to protect, let us know. We can provide you with plastic covering to keep these items clean and dry during the process.

Wherever possible, we also strongly recommend that you protect your plants. While we use eco-friendly cleaning materials, the high-pressure spray can cut through leaves and branches with ease. Try to move pot plants away from the cleaning area, and cover any fragile landscape plants with robust, waterproof plastic. As with every other step of the preparation process, we’re happy to help.

Cover Exterior Electrical Outlets

Water and electricity are a dangerous mix. When you store your portable items, don’t forget to pack extension cords away as well. Also, make sure that your exterior outlets are covered and sealed before we start working.

Keep Pets and Children Away

High-pressure water can be dangerous, and getting hit directly by the spray can result in severe injury. If possible, leave your kids and pets with a friend or with a sitter off the premises. Otherwise, keep them protected inside, well away from any doors and windows during the cleaning process.

Conclusion

Pressure cleaning is an eco-friendly, reliable way to get rid of external dirt and grime on your home. Unfortunately, due to the high pressure we use, there is the potential for damage to some of your items. Our team at Propel Pressure Cleaning will do everything we can to help you prepare for your pressure washing session. By following these simple tips, you can avoid the risk of property damage or personal injury.

Our Reviews

While visiting my father in Warner Robins over the Thanksgiving holidays I noticed that it’s been sometime since his house was pressure washed. I thought it would be a nice gift so when I return back to my house I spent some time looking at companies/ reviews in that area and just made a decision based off the reviews. I reached out to Jesse and received a quote within a few minutes. I set up an appointment for a few weeks later. On the day of the appointment they showed up on time and began work. My father was very satisfied with the work done. In his words these guys were very professional. My father plans on retaining their services in the future. Based off my experience setting up the appointment and my father’s feedback I would highly recommend these guys for any and all your pressure washing needs.

Jesse came by one day and gave us a price to do our house, driveway and sidewalks that just floored us. We thought it had to be too good to be true. He floored us again with the job he did. He definitely will be doing our home from now on. Awesome job Jesse!!!

I’ve known Jesse for almost 20 years. He’s an all around good guy and a great father. He’s honest, loyal, hard working, and dedicated. When we got in a pinch with both sides of the family coming in town he really came through for us. What would of taken me days to do, he did in a matter of hours. The house and the walk ways were so clean I had to put on sun glasses to walk outside it was so bright. I don’t recommend a lot of businesses or put my name on the line for people, but I can say with full confidence that I highly recommend Propel Pressure Cleaning. If you need some work done Jesse Meister is the one to call.

Great work, courteous people, on time, and very reasonable pricing. I called & received a quote on Friday. Saturday moring Jesse came out and did a Great job on my driveway, brick mailbox, and back porch. He showed up exactly when he said he would, was nice to my family, and took pride in what he did. When he was done he even asked if I would take a look at the work to ensure it was satisfactory to my needs. I’ll use him again.
