North Carolina sees wet and stormy weather as well as hot and humid summers. Homeowners in the Northeast have decks, patios, gorgeous driveways, gardens, and more, and the curb appeal of some homes is second to none. In other words, locals take pride in where they live and like to do much of their entertaining outside when the weather is favorable. While storms blow dirt and debris, heat promotes the growth of moss and mold, and as any resident knows, these elements sure can compromise the look of their homes. Of course, cleaning the exterior of a home by hand is enough to send any owner into a tailspin, but thankfully there's an alternative solution: pressure washing in Raleigh, NC.
The effective and efficient service that removes dirt, grime, moss, mold, rust, and more, pressure washing is a high-value task that requires skill and precision. Don't risk damaging your home by taking it on yourself; just call your local Raleigh handyman instead.

About Our Raleigh Pressure Washing Service
Pressure washing is all about cleaning. It's one of the quickest ways to remove dirt and grime from around your home. With that said, there is a correct way to do it to avoid damage, considering one of these machines generates up to 7,000 psi (pounds per square inch) of force. For reference, the water that comes out of your tap has a psi of about 70. That means a pressure washer is 100 times more powerful and will damage delicate materials easily.
Different surfaces require different amounts of psi, so it's important to be properly trained in these differences before you handle a machine. Our service professionals are. We know that roof shingles require a low amount of pressure, while driveways can handle more. A few of the most common areas we can pressure wash around your property include:
Decks and Patios
You love spending time in your outdoor space, but after a big blow or a weekend of rainy weather, you may notice some dirt, mud, debris, or even mold on your deck. Thanks to North Carolina's warm weather, dirt gets caked on pretty quickly and can be difficult to remove. Mold can grow in under 24 hours with the right conditions–and it loves to grow on wood.
Other issues decks can face? Rust from screws and nails, tough stains from food and wine, peeling paint, old stain, and much more.
If this sounds overwhelming, there is a silver lining to all of these messes–they can all be removed easily with pressure washing! Let our experienced pressure washers make quick work of your deck stains and mess.
Want even better news? Because our team consists of trained handymen, if you need any sort of deck repair, we can get the damage taken care of on the same service day! That's one of the many benefits of choosing Mr. Handyman. With us, you can consider your to-do list complete!
There are many different types of siding in Raleigh and Clayton. From wood to vinyl, each requires a different pressure washing setting. Some need soft washing, while others require a little more power.
When hiring a qualified team, you can trust that your home will be properly looked after before, during, and after your Raleigh pressure washing project. Before washing your siding, we'll inspect the exterior of your home for damage if you like, including your fascia, soffit, gutters, and roof. If you'd like to add fascia repair or gutter cleaning to your maintenance service, we can make sure your entire property is in excellent condition.
You park your car in your garage every day, but how often do you clean it? Parking garages are usually very dirty places, and if it's been a while since you cleaned yours, consider this quick service for your garage floors. Pressure washing can remove dirt and debris, along with tire marks, oil, paint stains, and more. We'll have your space looking pristine in no time.
Driveways are meant to take a beating, but certain materials hide dirt and stains better than others. A light-colored driveway may have grass stains and mud, along with oil stains and tire marks from your car. Whether you want to increase your home's curb appeal or are considering selling, our pressure washing services can help.
Fences are usually secured in grass and dirt, and that means they can become stained and messy-looking. From white-painted wooden picket fences to vinyl lookalikes, cleaning up your fence can uplevel the appearance of your property. If you do happen to have a painted wood fence and find that it's time to repaint or stain, the first step in the process will always be pressure washing. Ask us about our fence repair services to address any additional types of damage after cleaning.
Outdoor Play Equipment
Exposed to the elements, outdoor play equipment easily becomes muddy in a storm. Made from PVC, wood, or metal, no matter what type is in your backyard, it could likely do with a quick blast to remove bird droppings, dirt, and possibly mold growth or insect nests.

Raleigh Pressure Washing FAQs
How Often Should a House Be Pressure Washed?
Maintenance jobs such as pressure washing should, ideally, be completed twice per year, once in the late spring and again in the early fall. This will help get your deck and patio in great shape for the summer season and will prepare it for winter.
Is it Worth it to Hire a Professional for Pressure Washing in Raleigh, NC?
In our experience, it is 100% worth it to hire a professional for power washing in Raleigh, NC. We've seen what happens when homeowners take the responsibility into their own hands, and often, it doesn't end pretty. By hiring an expert team, you can breathe easily, knowing that your property will be taken care of properly. With our professional equipment, knowledge, and experience, we reduce the risk of damage while performing the job correctly.
Is There Anything You Can't Pressure Wash?
There are many things you should never pressure wash. Considering the high-pressure water that's generated from the machine, you can do considerable damage to delicate or easily dented materials. You should never pressure wash the following:
- Grass and flowerbeds: While you may think you can give your grass and flowers a quick drink while you pressure wash the pavers in between them, you will actually destroy them in the process. Even the lowest setting of a pressure washer is too powerful for delicate flowers, which usually do best with a slow and light sprinkle of water.
- Vehicles: Thinking about spraying down your car while you clean your driveway? Think again. Though cars are made from durable materials, they dent very easily. That means if you use too high of a setting on the pressure washer, you will end up damaging your car. With enough force, you can even take out the front or tail lights too.
- Humans and animals: If you spray a living being with a pressure washer, you will seriously harm them. With enough power to cut, mark, and bruise the skin, the utmost care should be taken when operating one of these machines. It's also worth noting that the actual body of a pressure washer also generates a lot of heat. While using, you should make sure that kids and animals are kept inside to avoid accidental burns.
Pressure washing other elements and surfaces, such as roof shingles, double-pane windows, and brick washing, should be done with the utmost care. They each require specific settings to effectively clean without causing damage. That's where our experienced team comes in. With our expertise and training, we can effectively clean your exterior surfaces, and you can have total peace of mind.
What is the Best Time of Year for Pressure Washing in Raleigh, NC?
After a cold, rainy, and windy winter and spring, your deck, siding, pavers, and outdoor furniture or play equipment will likely be a mess. Late spring is the ideal time to pressure wash these surfaces. Pressure washing in Raleigh at this time can also ensure that there will be no more (or fewer chances of) unpleasant weather, meaning you won't have to think about the task again for several months.
The great thing about home maintenance tasks? Many of them can be performed at the same time. Tack on gutter cleaning, deck repair, window repair, and more to your pressure washing service to take care of them simultaneously. That way, your property will be in excellent shape for summer.
