Are you wondering how to deal with the stubborn dirt on your deck, home siding, roof, or even driveway?
You already know the answer: pressure washing!
A pressure washer can blast off up to 4,000 psi, which is enough pressure to remove the stains without damaging the surface underneath.
The only problem is you don’t have one, or if you do, you lack the expertise to operate it properly. This is why you’re considering hiring a pressure washing company.
But how do you find the best company? Read on for 5 questions you need to ask before hiring.
1. What’s Your Pressure Washing Process?
If high pressure alone were the secret to giving your home a sparkling wash, you would do it yourself. It’s for this reason you must ask the prospective company about its pressure washing process.
From their description of the process, you should be able to gauge whether they’re the right people for the job.
For instance, do they begin by examining the surfaces to be cleaned and identifying whether pressure washing is the right solution? Do they mix the water with appropriate detergents?
The ideal company should give you a detailed and logical lowdown of their pressure washing process.
2. Do Your Workers Have Special Training?
A pressure washing company is only as good as the competence of its workers (pressure washer operators).
Enquire whether these workers have any professional cleaning and safety training beyond the regular on-the-job training most companies give their employees.
Also ensure the company provides its operators with the appropriate work gear, and that they’re aware of relevant local pressure washing regulations.
3. Is Your Company Licensed and Insured?
Most states, including Texas, typically require pressure washing businesses to have a license.
Is the company you want to hire licensed? Ask for the licensing details and verify that everything is in order.
In addition to licensing, ensure the company has adequate liability insurance. You don’t want to be held responsible should a worker suffer an injury while cleaning your property.
4. How Long Have You Been in the Business?
You want experienced hands pressure-washing your home, right?
To get this, hire a company that’s had a sufficient amount of experience pressure washing houses. This way, chances are pretty good that they’ve dealt with a property like yours.
However, it’s not enough to ask how long a company has in business. Follow up the question with “how many properties have you pressure-washed?”
The company should be willing to provide a couple of references who you can call to inquire about the quality of services.
5. Do You Offer a Service Guarantee?
A pressure washing company comes in and does a shoddy job — what do you do?
Call the same company and ask them to redo the job? Sounds okay, but if the company doesn’t offer a service guarantee, it’s unlikely that your efforts will yield a positive outcome.
Don’t be caught in such a situation. Ask the potential company whether it offers a service guarantee. If it doesn’t, move on.
Any company that prides in offering quality services should not have any problem offering an unconditional service guarantee.
