Do You Really Need to Hire a Professional to Pressure Wash Your House?

We live in the age of empowered DIY-ers.

And, in many ways, this is good! Taking charge and diving into your own home improvement projects can be fun and rewarding, whether you’re refinishing a bureau, getting to the bottom of that leaky faucet, or repairing the lawn mower. Youtube delivers lots of tutorials, and websites like Houzz.com provide the endless inspiration.

There are some projects, however, that require especially careful consideration. Leaping into the process without the right tools or knowledge can do more harm than good, both to yourself and to your home.

While pressure washing may seem as simple as pointing and pulling a trigger, there actually are a number of considerations to keep in mind.

Why Invest In Professional Power Washing Services?

Safety First!

A pressure washer is to your garden hose what a race car is to a mini van. This high power tool has the potential to be absolutely awesome, but without knowledgeable handling you can really hurt yourself (skin punctures, severe eye damage, etc.).

Consider Your Home

Every surface is a little different, and so is its condition. A professional pressure washing technician knows how to carefully navigate the age and nature of what is being washed, avoiding damage while maximizing the cleaning power. If you simply blast away equally and at full throttle, you can do a lot of expensive harm.

Not-so-fun-fact: using the wrong nozzle and pressure can badly scar a deck or fence!

Avoid Water Damage

Spraying directly on or around windows, or up under your eaves, can cause water intrusion. And, consequently, interior water damage. Knowing and avoiding the vulnerable points around your home is absolutely essential.

Using the Right Solution

Pressure washing with water alone can be very effective, but you can take it to a new level with the right cleaning product. A pro should be able to tell you exactly what they use, and why. For example, at Rogall Painting we use only biodegradable, environmentally-friendly cleaners that will never harm your landscaping, family, or pets.

Not every product (or professional!) is equal.
