It may come as a bit of a shock to you but there are many different types of pressure washing services that you can choose from depending on the type of service that you are looking for.
Yes, the days of just hiring a pressure washing contractor to perform all your pressure washing tasks are long gone. Not too long ago you were able to hire a pressure washing contractor to wash your house, strip your wood deck, pressure wash your roof, clean your gutters, stain your wood deck, pressure wash your driveway, seal your back patio and wash your dog all at the same time.
The pressure wash industry has evolved today in which contractors offer a specialty service or services that may include only washing your roof and sealing it. Or just stripping your wood deck and staining it. Over the years individual contractors have perfected methods where they have excelled in a particular service and offer just that service as their core service for their business. Here is a listing of some of the specific services now being offered by the pressure wash industry:
- House Wash
- Gutter Cleaning
- Roof Washing
- House Washing and Window Cleaning
- Driveway Cleaning
- Sidewalk Cleaning
- Concrete Patio Pressure Washing and Sealing
- Driveway Sealing
- Paver Cleaning and re-sanding
- Paver Sealing
- Wood patio/stain stripping
- Wood patio staining or restoration
As you can see from the list, there are many specialized services that you can choose from. Contractors have mastered several of the above items on the list above so that they can offer a suite of services all at one time to their customers. It makes sense to know how to seal stamped concrete after you pressure washed it.
For example, our company New Look Power Wash does not restore wood decks. We have attempted in the past to warm up to idea of stripping and staining wood decks but never made it beyond the thought of doing it. Though we feel there is a huge market in Northern California today for wood restoration I just can’t overcome the thought of investing in the necessary time to this particular service today.
As one contemplates which service you are looking for, consider what you need to have pressure washed and find the contractors that offer this service. One example I can use for this is that a pressure wash contractor that specializes in driveway sealing does not necessarily posses the expertise for wood restoration and staining and vice-versa. It may be safe to say that if a contractor is capable of pressure washing your house then he runs a very good chance in possessing the knowledge to pressure wash your sidewalk. However it is always good to ask what specific services a pressure wash company offers and then take it from there.
An individual company’s website should have their services listed on their site. By doing so will give you a good indication initially of which company you should contact to ask them to bid on your project. Always feel comfortable in asking any contractor to show you his/her work and also to explain the steps they use in to clean your property. Depending on the size of the job a demo from the contractor may be in order and it would not hurt to ask if they could do a demo for you. It is our standard practice to offer FREE demos to any commercial client in California. In conjunction with this we also offer FREE estimates to any residential customer.
