Debunking 4 Common Pressure Washing Myths

Debunking 4 common pressure washing myths

There are many pressure washing myths floating around and it's important that homeowners can understand the difference between fact and fiction. We debunk some of the most common pressure washing myths below.

If you'd like to know more about the truth behind these pressure washing myths, give us a call today.

Myth: Pressure Washing Is Very Easy To Do On Your Own

Truth: You may think you're handy and a DIYer, but pressure washing can be very difficult for someone who doesn't have the right equipment or experience. Rather than risking any damage or harm to yourself trying to accomplish difficult pressure washing tasks like roof cleaning, we advise you to reach out to a professional pressure washing service, such as Bright Pressure Washing.

Myth: You Can Use High Pressure Everywhere

Truth: High water pressure can eliminate stains from surfaces like brick, concrete, and some wood. But it's too powerful for areas like shingles or vinyl siding. For these areas, we utilize a method known as soft washing, also called low-pressure or no-pressure washing. For this method, we combine low water pressure with special soaps in order to gently yet thoroughly scrub surfaces around your property.

Myth: Soft Washing Soap Is Dangerous

Truth: The soaps we use for our soft washing methods are very powerful and great at removing stains and grime. However, they are not dangerous. They won't cause any harm to you or your family, your property, or the environment. You'll be able to go outside and enjoy the wash almost immediately after we've finished our session.

Myth: Professional Pressure Washing Is Too Expensive

Truth: Many homeowners are hesitant about purchasing a professional pressure washing package because they think it's too costly. The truth of the matter is that professional pressure washing services will actually cost you less than if you were to do it on your own. This is because you'll have to spend a lot of time and effort on upkeep for your own pressure washing equipment, as well as all the time it takes to do your own pressure washing.
