Pressure Washing Charlotte Area Condominiums

Pleasing your customers is obviously the goal of any small company.  In the pressure washing industry it can be especially challenging due to the nature of what we do.  It is very difficult to find a true definition of “clean” given its subjective nature.  My definition and expectation of “clean” can be very different from yours.  Therefore, trying to please everyone can be rather difficult.  That being said, it’s important to discuss expectations and results ahead of time so everyone is on the same page.

This task becomes especially challenging when cleaning multiunit housing like condominiums and apartment buildings.  In some cases, pleasing as many as several hundred residents at one time can be quite a task, as everyone has a different expectation of “clean”.  Thankfully, we have the opportunity to review expectations with our property managers and determine exactly what is expected. 

Camelot Pressure Washing, Inc. provides such an exceptional service that this is often not an issue.  We also guarantee our work.  If we don’t do what we say we are going to do, then we don’t charge for our service.  Our superior equipment, professional grade cleansers, and years of experience allow us to be extremely confident in our pressure washing results.

Our property managers rely heavily on our results as they are a direct reflection on them as well.  We make townhomes and their property managers look great.  The next time your HOA is looking for clean properties, give us a call…we’ll make you look great!

Commercial Pressure Washing In Charlotte NC And Surrounding Cities

In this age of social networking and internet marketing, many companies are focusing heavily on Facebook updates, tweets about their businesses, and their LinkedIn network connections.  These are very effective ways of drawing the public towards your business.  It helps get Joe Public off his couch and into your store.  It gets a company’s name in front of thousands at a very little cost. 

What does a business owner or manager do when their company uses a successful social networking campaign, coupled with a very expensive advertising campaign, has wonderful customer service, but they can’t keep customers that visit their store?  Their product is wonderful, their prices are competitive, but for some reason Joe Public turns his back after one visit. 

 Camelot Pressure Washing, Inc. suggests that these owners and managers consider their appearance.  There is nothing more unsightly than hundreds of wads of chewing gum and years of built up grime covering the concrete in front of a business.  It lets the whole world know that a business has no regard for cleanliness.  It also makes folks wonder that “if the FRONT of the business looks like this where everyone can see, what does the BACK look like where customers can’t see?”

 The entrance to a business should be clean of gum and grime.  There should be no slippery mildew on the concrete where a customer might fall.  We live in a litigious society where business owners need to be aware of these hazards.  Mildew streaks on the front of a business scream “WE DON’T CARE ABOUT OUR APPEARANCE!” 

 These are tough economic times where customers are making very informed purchases about every product they buy.  It is important to set your business apart from the competition in any way possible.  One easy way to accomplish this is by hiring a professional commercial pressure washing firm to clean your storefront on regular basis.  Pressure washing is an inexpensive way to make your business literally stand out from the competition.  Clean, gum-free sidewalks with no mildew on them, speaks volumes about the product that is INSIDE the commercial location, regardless of what product it is.

Pressure Washing Charlotte With LOW Pressure

            What exactly does it mean when a pressure washing contractor claims to use “low pressure” cleaning methods?  Low pressure cleaning techniques are vital to maintaining the appearance of your home or business.  A low pressure technique involves using low PSI (pounds per square inch) for the application of appropriate cleansers for the surface being cleaned.  The surface is then washed and rinsed using high GPM (gallons per minute) equipment. 

            Quality pressure washing contractors using this method need to be educated about the cleansers they are using and what effect they have on the surface being cleaned.  Low pressure techniques are most effective because they greatly reduce damage to property when performed correctly.  Using too many PSI on the wrong surface can cause irreparable damage to decks, concrete, and all forms of siding.

            Unfortunately for unsuspecting home owners and business owners, high pressure contractors are generally a bargain.  Their lack of overhead keeps their pricing down, and by the time the customer realizes there is long term damage to their property, the contractor is out of business.  Ask your pressure washing contractor what their cleaning methods are before you hire them.

How To Choose Your Charlotte Area Pressure Washing Contractor.

            For many home owners and business owners, choosing a pressure washing contractor comes down to one important factor: cost.  While cost is certainly a factor in this shaky economy, it is a grave error if one doesn’t consider the long term cost of hiring the wrong contractor versus the benefit of short term price.  Pricing, along with other factors, should guide customers in making an educated decision about which company to hire for their pressure washing needs.

Finding a pressure washing contractor begins with the ones closest to you.  Ask friends and family members for recommendations.  People that have had good experiences with a contractor are eager to tell others about their experience.  The internet is an excellent tool for researching pressure washing contractors.  You want to look for companies with professional websites that offer pertinent information about the industry.  Companies that write industry related articles, belong to professional trade organizations and offer educational resources for their customers are good signs of a professional company.  Avoid companies that bash competitors or have poor website content.  Research individual companies by looking for customer testimonials, or pictures and videos of their work. 

Try and find pressure washing companies that offer free estimates, and invite them to give a quote on services.  With the exception of unusual circumstances, a pressure washing contractor should always perform a site visit to give an accurate quote.  Quality contractors are uniformed or have visible company logos that identify them as who they claim to be.  Ask the contractor a series of questions about their company, techniques, and expectations.  Pressure washing contractors should have liability insurance, business licenses, and appropriate permissions in the event of drought conditions or other local water issues.

The contractor should provide a professional, detailed quote of services to be performed.  A common trap that customers fall into is to base their final decision on price.  Due to relatively low start up costs and false perception of how to wash surfaces properly, the pressure washing industry breeds many “part time” companies or companies that offer “add-on” pressure washing services like landscapers, painters, or handyman services.  These companies often use improper “high pressure” washing techniques that cause long term damage to siding (forcing water behind vinyl and brick), concrete (etching due to high pressure), and decks (shredding deck surfaces with too much pressure).  Their prices, however, are typically low because they don’t spend money on proper machinery, professional cleansers, or in some cases insurance.

As with any contractor, the term “caveat emptor” (let the buyer beware) is applicable.  After considering recommendations from friends and family, researching them on the internet, evaluating their professionalism, and determining their professional value, one should be armed with enough information to make an educated decision.  In the end, consumers need to feel good about how much value they got for their money, both short term and long term.

Pressure Washing Charlotte Stucco Homes | 704-400-0623

The thought of cleaning Stucco or Dryvit homes can send many pressure washing contractors running for the hills.  While these types of siding require a certain degree of care, they are not any more or less difficult to clean than any other kind of siding.  A quality professional can handle this kind of job very easily and with a little research, finding a contractor should be rather painless.

The key to cleaning Stucco and Dryvit homes is low pressure and proper chemical usage.  When a contractor uses the proper cleansers, pressure becomes unnecessary.  Too much water pressure will literally remove the siding from the home leaving the homeowner with quite a mess.  Professional pressure washing companies will stress how important it is to “let the cleansers do the work.”  Proper usage of cleansers will leave a Stucco or Dryvit surface looking like new.

Many homeowners with this type of siding become exasperated as many pressure washing contractors will refuse to wash these surfaces out of fear.  Finding professional pressure washing organizations like the PWNC will help provide numerous professional contacts that can handle this kind of work.

Pressure Washing Charlotte Area Decks And Fences

 

 

 

 

            The thought of cleaning a deck or fence can be a daunting task for homeowners.  Hiring a professional pressure washing company with knowledge of wood care is a vital part of deck maintenance.  Do it yourself homeowners and pressure washing industry hacks cause thousands of dollars in unnecessary wood damage every year.

            Using too much water pressure on a deck, fence, or other wood structure causes irreparable damage.  There is an inclination to use heavy pressure on decks as the dirt is literally blown off the deck, resulting in a clean surface.  The problem is that soft, cellulose fibers in the wood are also blown out of the wood.  Unfortunately, after using excessive pressure on a deck it often looks clean, instilling a false sense of pride in the operator.  Problems arise soon thereafter as the deck develops grooves and cracks where the soft fibers used to be.  This causes premature aging of the wood, often reducing the lifespan of the deck by half!

            Improper use of cleansers causes the same issues as excessive pressure.  Too much bleach and detergent when pressure washing will dry the wood causing it to splinter and crack.  A qualified professional can make a grey, weathered deck look practically brand new using the correct cleansers and techniques so the project is performed safely.  Proper technique, water pressure, and cleansers will prolong the life of your deck and make it look fantastic in the process.
