Property Maintenance Through Pressure Washing

Disposable income is a rarity for many these days. Spending money on home improvement or repairs can be very costly, and in many cases debilitating, for families that are simply trying to keep with up with the rising cost of living. Some home improvement projects can cost thousands of dollars, and can be particularly stressful to homeowners that are trying to sell their home and are forced into making repairs to make their home more marketable.

In most cases, an inexpensive option for sprucing up your property is pressure washing. Getting rid of mold and mildew on your home can make a huge difference in its appearance. Hiring a professional pressure washing company to clean your home, deck, or driveway can create instant curb appeal. Many reputable pressure washing companies will offer free estimates.

Charlotte Property Management – Pressure Washing

1 2

Charlotte area residents and business owners are very familiar with property management fees. These fees are typically incurred by multi-unit housing dwellers and strip center businesses, and pay for building washing, concrete cleaning, landscaping, and other aesthetics within the community or business center. The most astute property managers utilize these funds to hire companies that keep their properties looking their best. Clean, maintained properties encourage potential residents and customers to frequent businesses and/or purchase homes on the property.

Property management companies that have the foresight to maintain the properties they manage are rewarded with quality tenants and thriving businesses. Concrete that is slippery from gum and mildew becomes a potential hazard for tenants and opens the door for lawsuits that can easily be avoided. Customers don’t wish to frequent businesses with grimy concrete that is covered in gum. It is unsightly and becomes a reflection of the business and its methods of cleanliness. Nothing says “Don’t rent or buy me” like mildew covered townhomes, fences, concrete, and walls. Annual maintenance on these surfaces will keep them looking their best.

There are actually pressure washing companies out there that warn their customer base to beware of those that join professional trade organizations.  As laughable as this concept is, these conspiracy theorists warn that these groups hold meetings to discuss price gouging their clientele.  Not only is that illegal, but completely immoral.  It makes me wonder if these same folks don’t go to doctors because they are part of the American Medical Association.

 

Professional pressure washing companies belong to trade organizations to educate themselves on proper technique, state of the art equipment, and to be part of a network of reliable, professional pressure washing companies that look to serve their customers better than the “lone wolf” water jockeys that are extolling the concepts of old school, high pressure techniques that destroy wood, and force water under your siding.  These companies are too narrow minded and short sighted to see the benefit of spending money and time for educational purposes.  Thankfully, they don’t last long and they certainly aren’t our competition.

 

Unfortunately, anyone can go purchase a pressure washer, throw it in the back of a van and join the ranks.  Thankfully, organizations like the PWNC and UAMCC weed these folks out.  Unlike organizations like the better business bureau, these groups are trade-specific and require proof of insurance and other credentials that prove you are a professional pressure washing organization, not just a guy with a business license.

 

Next time you are in need of a doctor, look to the AMA…a lawyer, see your state bar association…a professional pressure washing company that won’t damage your home, try the PWNC or UAMCC.  Also look for pressure washing testimonials from previous customers and don’t be afraid to ask for referrals from others in your neighborhood.  A good pressure washing company can supply them easily.

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 Brick Homes in Charlotte NC | Camelot Pressure Washing, Inc.

People that own brick homes generally seem to feel that pressure washing brick is not necessary.  While brick is certainly a low maintenance siding alternative, the same environmental pollutants, molds, and mildews that collect on vinyl and other kinds of siding collect on brick as well.  In fact due to its porosity, even more airborne contaminants can collect on brick as there are more “nooks and crannies” where these unwanted borders can collect.

            Green mold and mildew is naturally more difficult to see on brick than other types of siding, so some homeowners are under the impression that cleaning it is unnecessary.  The health benefits of removing mold and mildew from your home are tremendous and brick looks refreshed and renewed when cleaned properly.  Don’t neglect that brick home!

Why Vinyl Siding Should Be Cleaned By a Professional Pressure Washing Company.

The popularity of vinyl siding has increased dramatically over the past 10 years. The quality, durability, price, and visual appeal have made this the siding of choice for many homeowners. Just like any other major investment, the best way to ensure the quality of vinyl siding is to maintain it on a regular basis.
The very nature of siding is to protect the interior of your home by keeping exterior elements from intruding. This is a tough job, but vinyl stands up to the challenge very well. The vinyl siding on the exterior of your home is subject to pollutants, sun exposure, acid rain, mold and mildew, and many other elements. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, having it professionally cleaned on a regular basis can prevent premature degradation and keep your home looking great. Mold and mildew grow very rapidly on vinyl siding. If neglected for too long, it can cause permanent damage to your siding. Age, sun, and environmental pollutants can cause your vinyl to oxidize, giving your home a dull appearance.
A simple solution to these issues is to hire a professional pressure washing company to clean your home each year. Look for a company that specializes in pressure washing services. Many handymen, painters, and landscaping companies have pressure washing as an “add on” service. While more of a bargain up front, these companies should be avoided as improper technique and lack of chemical knowledge can result in irreparable damage to your home. Homeowners should use companies that have insurance, can provide references, and display a high degree of professionalism. Look for companies that offer on-site free estimates, have uniforms, and belong to professional organizations like PWNC.
Likewise, this is a service that “do-it-yourself” homeowners should avoid. Forcing water under the siding, use of excessive water pressure, and improper chemicals can not only cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home, but often result in physical injury to the homeowner. Getting your home serviced annually by a reputable, professional pressure washing company can keep your investment looking great, save you a lot of money and keep you from taking a trip to the emergency room.

What It Means To Be A Green Pressure Washing Company in Charlotte

In today’s environmentally conscious society, many local companies are scrambling to jump on the green bandwagon.  Every bit helps and those that truly make an effort to reduce waste, use biodegradable products, and reduce their carbon footprint should be commended for their actions whether it be a pressure washing company, baker, or candlestick maker.

            There are, however, many pitfalls in this surge of environmental concern.  Many companies falsely claim to be green to capitalize on the trend only to benefit their bottom line by trying to outwit the public they serve.  Not only does this isolate the consumer by insulting their intelligence, but it destroys the integrity of the industry.  This is particularly evident in the pressure washing industry. 

Pressure washing is an industry that is relatively easy to become involved in.  It is an industry plagued by unknowledgeable operators that are attracted to the low start up costs and high income potential.  They do not belong to professional organizations, participate in industry round table events, or educate themselves on the latest products, techniques, and trends that help keep our customers investments safe and clean.  These same folks will sometimes use the “green” angle to help gain new customers that are legitimately concerned about the environment.

Professional pressure washing companies that claim to be “green” should use water saving equipment, biodegradable chemicals, and have the ability to reclaim and reuse their waste water.  All of this should be coupled with the proper education on how to use the equipment and cleansers properly.  As a consumer it is important to do your research by trying to find companies that are knowledgeable in their field, not knowledgeable on the art of tricking potential customers.
