Professional Pressure Washing VS. DIY

Pressure washing

You want your house to look nice, to have that curb appeal, and to be a place that coming home to is a joyful experience. But, when your roof, siding, porch, and driveway are coated with dirt, grime, or even ash, it can start to lose that aesthetic. However, there’s a quick and easy way to combat the dirt that naturally accumulates over time by pressure washing. When it comes to cleaning your home and property’s exterior, you can choose to DIY the job, or contact a professional pressure washing company.

What Does Pressure Washing Mean?

Pressure washing is a cleaning method that uses high-pressure water to remove dirt, grime, and other build-up from surfaces like driveways, sidewalks, decks, and houses. It’s an efficient and effective way to keep your property looking its best and extend its lifespan.

Doing it Yourself

While it’s possible to pressure wash your home yourself, it’s not usually a wise decision. Pressure washers are expensive and can often cause damage to your home and furniture if not used properly. It’s also very time-consuming and could potentially cause an injury for homeowners with little experience in handling pressure washing equipment. 

Plus there are aspects to pressure washing that the average homeowner simply doesn’t know. For instance, there is a difference between soft washing and pressure washing, which allows for an effective clean on more delicate surfaces. There are also instances in which hot water is more useful. So, while you can rent or even buy a pressure washer to clean your home DIY-style, it’s not something everyone should do.

Why Hire a Professional Pressure Washing Company?

While DIY pressure washing is an option, there are many benefits to hiring a professional pressure washing service. Experience and expertise can go a long way toward a job well done. While you can pressure wash your home’s exterior, a professional understands the different techniques needed to properly clean a variety of surfaces, including knowing when to soft wash and when to power wash with hot water.

Professional cleaning companies also have access to commercial-grade equipment that is much more powerful than a consumer-grade pressure washer you might rent or buy. This means they can clean more effectively and in less time and will have the correct nozzles or accessories for cleaning efficiently.

It’s also a safer option. The professional will have the training and safety equipment necessary to get the job done safely and efficiently. They know how to handle the equipment and can avoid accidents or damage to your property.

And of course, it’s time-saving to hire a company to handle your home’s exterior cleaning. Instead of spending hours pressure washing by yourself on a Saturday, you can relax and enjoy a clean home all weekend long.
