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.

Pressure washing Charlotte Is Challenging With Drought, Media.

Pressure washing Charlotte, NC has been more difficult this season due to the recent drought. Camelot Pressure Washing, Inc., a charter member of the PWNC (Power Washing Network of the Carolinas), attended a meeting in Raleigh yesterday to discuss the recent drought and how the media is helping to generate a public misconception about pressure washing companies.

Camelot Pressure Washing has permission and privilege licenses from Mecklenburg, Union, and Cabarrus counties to continue full operations. Many fellow pressure washing companies, particularly in Wake County, have been dealing with unrealistic restrictions that local government has placed on them. These restrictions are causing many pressure washing companies to fail.

Pressure washing companies that are licensed, insured, and belong to professional organizations like the PWNC are generally very well educated regarding water conservation and use very little water to clean businesses and homes across the Carolinas. The average water usage to clean a 2200 square foot home once a year is approximately 200 gallons…less than what a family of four would use to shower in one day. Businesses like restaurants and beauty salons aren’t experiencing water restrictions despite using much more water.

Pressure washing companies are being targeted due to their high visibility despite performing a public service by eliminating mold and mildew on homes of asthmatic children, making sidewalks safe by getting rid of slippery mold, cleaning bio hazards from crime and accident scenes, and helping to keep an already weakened housing market viable. The media has aided the government’s efforts by reporting the negative connotations surrounding water consumption by pressure washers instead of reporting the facts. Pressure washing companies use far less water than most other companies.

Pressure washing Charlotte NC | Beware of Who You Hire!

Many companies in the Charlotte area provide pressure washing as an “add-on” service to their painting, carpentry, or landscaping businesses. Anyone can purchase pressure washing machines at a local hardware store. These folks can, and often do, more damage than good. Although our equipment and products are some of the most advanced available, they are only as good as the operator using them. Thousands of dollars are spent annually replacing and repairing damage caused by an under-skilled operator or company that oversold their knowledge and capabilities.

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.
