FAQs About Professional Power Washing

If you are like most homeowners who are approaching power washing for the first time, you probably have some questions. We offer live answering services that can address preliminary questions and schedule an appointment with an expert who will walk you through the entire power washing process. However, we have provided the answers to a few of the most commonly asked questions.

What Can I Power Wash?

When performed by a skilled and experienced professional, most of your home exterior can be safely power washed, from your siding and gutters to your deck and patio. However, you should avoid power washing some items, materials, and surfaces. Working around landscaping is an incredibly delicate part of power washing. Trees, shrubs, and anything else in your garden will likely suffer if a power washer hits it.

Will Power Washing Remove Paint?

It depends. If the paint is chipping or peeling, high PSI power washing can remove some of it. However, when knowledgeable power washers adjust the PSI appropriately, your home’s exterior paint should not be harmed as long as it is in good condition.

How Often Should I Power Wash My Home?

You should power wash your home at least once a year if you want to keep it in pristine condition. Here in the New Hampshire area, many homeowners need power washing services two or three times per year. This is especially true if you live near a waterway, which causes mold, mildew, and algae to grow on your home exterior at a rapid rate.
