5 Myths About Pressure Washing

Myths About Tallahassee Pressure Washing

In the world of pressure washing, there are a lot of myths floating around in terms of methods, tools, and services. It's important for Tallahassee homeowners and property owners to fully know the truth behind these myths so that they can understand the importance of hiring a pressure washing service.

Here are five of the most common pressure washing myths and the actual facts behind them.

Myth: Pressure washing is just using high water pressure to clean surfaces

Truth: While pressure washing does involve a high amount of water pressure, there are some methods that actually use low pressure instead. This soft washing is often used for more delicate surfaces such as vinyl siding or shingles. The water is combined with special detergents to remove dirt, grime, fungus, mold, mildew, and other harmful growths without potentially damaging the surface.

Myth: Pressure washing is only for large homes or businesses

Truth: You pressure wash virtually any exterior surface, no matter how big or small. Premier Pressure Washing offers pressure washing for pavers, bricks, driveways, sidewalks, and fencing. You'll want to use pressure washing for a majority of exterior surfaces to ensure they're spotless.

Myth: Pressure washing is very easy to do on your own

Truth: Do not underestimate pressure washing. While it looks simple, it actually requires careful methods and tactics to ensure surfaces are adequately cleaned and not damaged. That is why we highly recommend avoiding doing it yourself and to instead hire a professional pressure washing contractor, such as Premier Pressure Washing.

Myth: Every surface can be pressure washed

Truth: Many exterior surfaces can be pressure washed, but there are some that are too delicate for the high level of pressure. Once again, we recommend hiring professional pressure washers who are adept at finding out which surfaces can handle pressure washing and which ones cannot. Using too much pressure can cause significant, and sometimes costly, damage to surfaces around the home. Rather than take the risk, always consult with an expert first.
