Reasons You Need Pressure Washing in Keller, TX
The main motivation for getting pressure washing in Keller, TX for most homeowners and commercial property owners is that it improves the exterior appearance of their property. Curb appeal is certainly one of the reasons why pressure washing is important—especially if you’re planning to put your house on the market soon—but there are additional benefits to this service that few are aware of.
When you think about cleaning the inside of your Keller home, what are your justifications for doing so? You’ll probably state that it keeps your home healthier, happier and in great condition for years to come. The same is true for your outdoor surfaces.
Over time, contaminants such as dirt, dust, pollen, pollution and bacteria build up on your home’s siding, deck, patio, roof and driveway. If you or someone within your household struggles with allergies, power washing can help reduce their allergy symptoms by lowering their exposure to allergens. These contaminants can also harm your exterior surfaces by eating away at the finish. For wood surfaces, this is especially harmful, as deterioration of the outer layer of sealant can increase the wood’s susceptibility to developing wood rot, leading to costly repairs down the line.
There is a wide range of cleaning jobs that our Keller pressure washing service can tackle, including:
Patio furniture cleaning
Porch cleaning And more!
If you’ve tried scrubbing an area of your Keller home’s exterior with soap and water to no avail, our pressure washing service can remove dirt and grime once and for all. In addition to being a top cleaning solution, pressure washing is also a great method for stripping surfaces in preparation for painting, staining or sealing. A deck that needs some serious sprucing up can be pressure washed to remove all deeply embedded debris before sanding and refinishing.
Our Pressure Washing Service
No matter which area of your Keller home you want to be cleaned, our experienced pressure washing technicians can get the job done safely and effectively. With pressure washing machines available for rent from local hardware stores, some Keller residents wonder why they should hire a professional team instead of doing the job themselves. Some of the benefits of using our professional residential and commercial pressure washing services include:
Saving time. If you decide to rent a pressure washing machine, you’ll have to drive to the local store, wait in line, use it to clean your home on your own and drive back to the store to return i once you’re finished. This can take the better part of your day off. Using our service will give you your Saturday back.
Saving money. There’s a fee associated with renting pressure washers, plus you’ll have to purchase a cleaning solution to add to the tank. If you don’t finish the job in time, you’ll have to rent it for a second day. Alternatively, you could purchase a pressure washer outright, but this will cost you significantly more than the occasional service will.
Avoiding accidents. Our handyman experts are fully insured, so if something goes wrong, your home is protected. If you use the wrong water pressure and damage your property yourself, you’ll have to pay out of pocket for repairs.
Types of Pressure Washers
On the day of your Keller pressure washing service, we’ll show up in a company vehicle with all the supplies and equipment we’ll need to complete your service. The main tool of the trade is, of course, the pressure washing device itself. Your technician will bring the right machine for your cleaning needs. There are three main types of machines, each suited for a different purpose. These include:
Electric pressure washer. Water up to 1,800 PSI (pounds-force per square inch) can be blasted through the hose of electric models. Suitable for cleaning patio furniture and spot cleaning.
Residential gas pressure washer. For heavy-duty jobs like cleaning decks, siding and driveways, these machines are capable of producing up to 3,000 PSI.
Commercial gas pressure washer. Graffiti removal, paint stripping and industrial-scale cleaning are possible with machines that produce over 3,000 PSI.
Something that many homeowners and business owners don’t realize is that there are multiple accessory tips and nozzles that can be purchased as add-ons to a pressure washer. Different tips are suited to different project types and can maximize the effectiveness of your pressure washing service. Your handyman technician will bring all the applicable nozzles to your appointment to ensure your service is completed according to the highest quality standards and as efficiently as possible.

FAQs For Pressure Washing In Keller, TX
Do I Need to Pre-treat Exterior Surfaces Before Pressure Washing in Keller, TX?
It’s not strictly necessary to pre-treat stains and dirt with a cleaning solution before pressure washing in Keller, TX, but for very stubborn stains, this can come in handy. Tough stains tend to be most often present on driveways, where motor oil or other auto fluids can sometimes drip and be absorbed by the concrete surface. Though concrete is an incredibly strong and durable material, it’s also porous. Many homeowners today are choosing to seal their concrete driveways to protect the surface from staining.
Whether or not you’re interested in sealing your Keller driveway, removing stains as soon as possible is ideal. If pressure washing at a high PSI isn’t enough to eliminate the stain, we can add a pre-treatment solution and try pressure washing again after it’s been allowed to sit for a little while.
Which Surfaces Can Be Damaged by Pressure Washing?
As effective as pressure washing is, it’s also an incredibly harsh cleaning method. In the cleaning world, effectiveness and eco-friendliness don’t always go hand-in-hand, but pressure washing is, fortunately, an exception to this, as pressure washing machines mostly use water. We suggest adding a biodegradable detergent to the solution to improve its cleaning power without having detrimental effects on the environment.
Though water is in and of itself gentle, there are some softer surfaces outdoors that cannot handle the high PSIs of pressure washers. Some of these surfaces include:
Brick patios and siding
To clean these surfaces, we recommend using ‘soft washing,’ which is a method that involves reducing the PSI produced by a pressure washer down to 600 or less. The same machine is used, but a soft washing nozzle is added to the end of the hose and wand. By creating a wide, fan-shaped stream, the PSI is distributed across a greater area, thereby reducing the contact PSI.
How Much Does Your Keller Pressure Washing Service Cost?
The cost of pressure washing in Keller, TX varies according to the extent of the job, the difficulty in accessing the area that requires cleaning, inflation rates at the time of service and supply chain disruptions that influence the cost of cleaning solutions. Though we’d love to be able to provide you with a pricing chart on our website, it’s impossible to provide accurate pricing without knowing your project details first.
For this reason, we’re happy to be able to offer free, no-obligation on-site estimates in advance of you booking a service appointment. As stated above, we believe in demonstrating integrity in all of our interactions with customers and fellow employees alike. We strive to provide pricing that is fair for both our customers and our experienced service technicians, and if you decide to go in another direction, we won’t hold you to it.
How Long Does Pressure Washing Take?
One of the biggest benefits of pressure washing in Keller, TX is how little time it takes to complete from start to finish. Scrubbing the siding of your entire two-story home could take days, if not weeks, whereas pressure washing your home shouldn’t take longer than a few hours. The exact length of time of your service will largely depend on the extent of your project, but your service technician will take the time to discuss the project scope and timeline with you at the beginning of your service.
If something comes up unexpectedly that alters the process or the estimated timeline, we’ll notify you right away and, if needed, obtain your permission before making any major changes to your service appointment.
Should I Get Pressure Washing or Power Washing?
Power washing is almost identical to pressure washing in Keller, TX. The only difference is that hot water is used in a power washer, while pressure washers use unheated water. Thanks to the hot water, a power washer tends to be more powerful and effective than a pressure washer. Our customers automatically assume that the more ‘powerful’ service is the best, but this is not true. While power washing is a great option for the removal of graffiti and tough grease stains, too much heat and PSI can damage some surfaces. Your Keller handyman expert has enough training and expertise to be able to determine which service and PSI are right for your project.
