Pressure washing Charlotte NC | Choosing a contractor | 704-400-0623

In today’s do-it-yourself society, many Charlotte homeowners are empowered with the belief that they should tackle jobs that are often far beyond their scope of knowledge and ultimately result is disaster.

One trade in which this trend is glaringly obvious is pressure washing. It is too easy for a homeowner to purchase the equipment necessary to do lasting damage to their home and its surroundings. Pressure washing is one of the few home projects that can provide instant gratification. This prospect is alluring to unsuspecting do-it-yourselfers that ultimately end up paying thousands of dollars to repair damaged property.

Consider the fact that a 4000 psi pressure washer with the wrong tip can cut a wooden 2×4 in half in less than one minute. Vinyl siding can be destroyed easily, severe water damage is possible under the siding, cement can be permanently etched, and a myriad of other problems when this easily accessible equipment is used incorrectly. Aside from the equipment issues, there are a series of other issues that can occur with the misuse of chemicals needed to clean certain surfaces. Many of the chemicals used in pressure washing are acidic, toxic, and can cause skin and respiratory problems when used incorrectly.

When considering pressure washing services for your home, one should investigate hiring a qualified contractor. A good pressure washing contractor should be able to provide references, proof of insurance, and customer testimonials. Ask your contractor if they are licensed and insured. Operating a business without a license or insurance is gross negligence and ultimately hurts the customer you are serving. Unfortunately there are numerous contractors that choose to put customers in jeopardy by not providing insurance.

Find out what kind of chemicals the contractor is using. Are they safe for children, pets, and foliage surrounding your home? In most cases, a pressure washing contractor should not use high pressure to clean a home. There are chemicals available that allow the use of low pressure to clean homes. This technique is safer for your home, windows, siding, and paint.

A good contractor should also provide extra service for their customers. A home cleaning should include removal of black streaks from your gutters. These are caused by the asphalt on your roof shingles and can be removed by professionals with the proper chemicals and equipment. Homeowners should also receive free, written estimates after an initial visit to the home in question. Never accept a quote over the phone. Ask the contractor what makes them different from their competitors. For example, do they use any additives like a house wax that will make your home look better and protect it from the elements?

Homeowners should consider these scenarios as they peruse the aisles of their local hardware stores immersed in pressure washers that can cause harm to their homes and themselves. Choosing the right pressure washing contractor will not only result in a great service for your home, but may save you thousands of dollars in repairs.
