Clients and customers often have a number of questions and some concerns when it comes to pressure washing. Often you will hear how you need to cover the surrounding areas and plants to prevent damages. Many will ask questions concerning the safety and effectiveness of pressure cleaning. Big Moose Pressure Cleaning would like to answer some of these concerns and questions that are often asked by new clients and customers.
Does Power Washing Harm Plants?
Often it is asked if the chemicals used to clean the various surfaces are harmful, and will they kill the lawn, plants or are they harmful for pets or kids? Depending on what is being cleaned, such as mildew, mold, and algae; or if paint, stains and other products need to be removed, often the chemicals or cleaning solution will change. In most cases the cleaning solution is diluted to the point they are not harmful. Additionally, in most cases the surrounding vegetation is presoaked with water to help prevent contamination or harm from the cleaning solutions. Most cleaners that remove algae and mold are based with a sodium hypochlorite which is similar to bleach and is diluted 1 to 10. There is enough dilution to prevent damage to lawns or other vegetation. The surface area is rinsed with pure water. Often the surrounding area is cleaned and the access water is then pushed into the public drainage system when possible. The chemicals are in most cases harmless. The professional can help ensure safety and use the proper cleaning solutions so you needn’t worry.
Can Pressure Washing Damage Windows, Siding & Other Surfaces?
It is often recommended for a professional pressure washer to do the pressure washing, versus the do your own pressure washing mainly because improper settings can cause major damage and injuries. Yes, if the force is too strong it can cause major damage to even the hardest surface, including concrete. Each surface requires certain settings of both force and water flow when it is cleaned. Therefore, it often requires training and experience. For example, if there is a weak surface that is beginning to deteriorate, then you will want to use an even softer setting than if the surface was new or in good condition. As long as the person has a good understanding of a pressure washing and what settings are needed to clean the different types of surfaces, then in most cases no damage will occur during pressure cleaning. However, it’s best to leave pressure cleaning to the professionals. They are trained and experiences and will ensure no damage occurs. If a bizarre accident should occur and damage happens, then a professional pressure washing company should have insurance to restore or replace the damage items or repair the damaged surface. This is why it is important to know if the pressure washing company is licensed and insured.
