Power washing, also called pressure washing, is a great way to clean away grime, dirt and weather remnants from exterior surfaces. Power washing can be done by homeowners or by professionals. How often the surface needs to be cleaned, the cost of obtaining or renting a power washing system and the complexity of the surface will determine whether professional cleaners would be a better option than doing the pressure washing on one’s own.
Power washing systems can be purchased or rented. There are both warm and cold water systems. Warm water systems require less cleaning solution to achieve optimal cleaning than cold water systems, but typically cost more than cool water systems. Power washing systems also come with varying levels of pressure. Consulting with a local home improvement specialist can help homeowners select the appropriate power washing system for their project.
