“Screen” Your Charlotte Area Pressure Washing Contractors

 

Screen damage

These days, many folks are finding themselves out of work, starting second careers, and running side businesses.  Unfortunately, pressure washing is generally a low cost start up company for many unqualified contractors looking for extra cash.  Many times they cause damage on the homes of unsuspecting homeowners looking to save money by hiring the “cheap” companies that are using household bleach and improper equipment/techniques on their customers homes.  There are ways, however, that consumers can protect themselves from having their largest investment destroyed for the sake of saving a hundred dollars.

First and foremost, ask your pressure washing contractor for proof of insurance.  Any respectable business will be able to provide proof of insurance quickly.  You also want to ask the contractor if they will be using low pressure techniques on your home.  Many still subscribe to the “old school” methods of blasting your home with high pressure, all the while destroying your vinyl, breaking your window seals, and ruining your screens.  Generally, these companies will market themselves as “chemical free” companies.  This, of course, is very appealling in today’s green world but it is not realistic.  They get the benefit of appearing “green” and not having costs for professional grade cleansers, so they are able to offer “$99” house washes.  In reality, cleansers are essential as mold and mildew needs to be killed and removed safely…not blown off your house only to leave roots behind that will sprout new mold and mildew within weeks.  Professional grade cleansers are designed to be safe, effective, and environmentally friendly when used properly.

When speaking with your pressure washing contractor, ask for referrals!  They should have customer testimonials, customers in your area, and maybe even customers on your block that can give you information on what to expect from your service.  In summary, three things to ask your pressure washing contractor can help save you hundreds or thousands in damage to your home…insurance, pressure washing methods/equipment, and referrals.  Keep in mind that the cheapest contractor is usually cheap for a reason.

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!

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.
