Powerwashing, or pressurewashing, is the application of a high pressure water spray to surfaces that need cleaned.
Powerwashing or pressurewashing is the application of high pressure water to clean surfaces.
It can be used on concrete to remove gum, mold, and dirt stains.
It’s used for wooden decks in order to bring back the wood’s vibrant colors.
It is used in houses for removing pollution, mildew and other signs of aging.
For the majority of surfaces, an annual pressurewashing should suffice. It does depend on the materials used to create/build the surface as well as the current condition of the surface, so you may need to increase the frequency of pressure washings.
While powerwashing can be viewed as a do-it-yourself project, there is a clear distinction between a DIY crew and professional services. This means you get greater capability of equipment and greater expertise by having trained power washing technicians do it for you.
A do-it-yourself washer may set the pressure too high for the surface or hold the nozzle too close to it. This can result in chipped painting, damaged screens, and ruined siding. And though most powerwashing equipment you can rent has the same PSI as commercial-grade tools, it holds a minimal amount of water—making this project take days, not hours.
PSI is the pounds per square inch. This is what delivers the punch during a power wash, forcing contaminants off the surface.
GPM is the gallons per minute. This flushes the contaminants pushed off by the PSI.
Both are very important. Some people do, however, prefer more PSI or more GPM depending on their needs. A farmer may want more GPM to flush contaminants away from the fresh soil; a business owner may want more PSI to get the grime off the exterior surface of his or her storefront.
Not with the professional technicians at Prolific Power Washing Services. We know how to properly utilize high pressurewashing equipment that has the capability to produce an extremely high pressure output. By examining the type of surface and its condition, our team can set the right amount of water pressure to be used.
