Feeling the Pressure? 3 Reasons to Hire a Professional Pressure Washer

By Tyler Kirk | Pressure Washing

Pressure washing your home is one of the greatest ways to increase its value. If you tried to hand wash the exterior of your house, 2 things would happen. First, you would never actually finish, and second, you would never be able to get it as clean as you want it.

But using a pressure washer can be a dangerous feat, especially if you've never used one before and don't know what you're doing.

Along with that, if you don't know the proper techniques to pressure wash your home, you could actually do more harm than good. And the last thing you want is to damage your home while trying to clean it.

Using a professional pressure washer can be a great solution to this problem. Here are a few reasons why you should leave it to the pros!

Benefits of a Professional Pressure Washer

Don't allow a stubborn "git-r-done" mentality to stop you from hiring a professional, especially when it comes to pressure washing. Doing something you aren't experienced it can lead to bigger problems and unwanted bills down the road. Here are some reasons you should leave pressure washing to the pros.

1. Safety

Pressure washing involves spraying water with an extremely high level of pressure. If this is not controlled correctly you can actually cause damage to your home. Damage that is completely avoidable if the user of the pressure washer has the experience to use it properly.

Using a pressure washer can also be dangerous. If you lose control for even a second, it could lead to serious harm or injury to you or anyone who might be around you. Now you're looking at unexpected medical bills on top of bigger repair bills to fix your house.

When you use a professional, you are placing this tool in the hands of someone who is not only experienced but who uses a pressure washer on a daily basis. You are also taking the liability off of your shoulders if something bad were to happen. Wouldn't you rather they foot the repair bill instead of you?

2. Attention to Detail

If you're going to take the time to clean the exterior of your home, don't want it to be thoroughly cleaned? Well, a professional has the experience to know exactly how to get every inch of your home cleaned.

That means covering everything from your driveway to the top of your roof. Getting away all those old dirt stains on the top and sides of your house can make it look almost new again. 

This also helps to increase the value of your home. If you are preparing to sell your house anytime in the near future, hiring a pressure washer to clean your home can really help raise the profit margin on your sale.

But don't stop there, if you're going to clean the exterior of your home, you might as well fix up the rest of the outside as well. Updated landscaping combined with a freshly clean house is a recipe for success.

Over time there can be a build of grime and contaminants on the exterior of your home. Things that the general public might not know to look for or even know about at all. A professional pressure washer is going to know exactly what to look for and ensure that those contaminants are completely removed from the surface of your home.

3. The Convenience Factor

Let's get real for a minute, spending hours and hours cleaning the outside of your home isn't exactly the most exciting way you could be spending your time. This is yet another beautiful part of hiring a professional pressure washer. 

The sheer quantity of time you will save by hiring a pro is enough to make you wonder why you didn't think of this sooner. Instead of wasting your entire weekend breaking your back to get your home clean, you could go golfing or take the family to see a movie.

Now you might be thinking, "Won't I save so much more money by doing it myself?" If you are debating on whether or not you should rent a pressure washer for yourself, think about this.

Pressure washing your house is not going to be a one day job. That means you are going to have to figure out how many days to rent it for. Not to mention the stress of doing any maintenance that might be necessary and finding a place to store it when it's not in use.

When you look at the scale of "save time vs save money," the amount of time you would save by hiring a pro far outweighs the little bit of money you might save doing it yourself.

The Pros Know Best

As you can see, hiring a professional pressure washer is always going to be your best option. It can save you from future expensive repair and medical bills. And it also ensures that your house will be thoroughly cleaned from the ground up.

The old adage "Time is money" has never been truer than when allowing a pro to pressure wash your house. Sometimes it's okay to be lazy and have somebody else do the work for you, especially when it's something as dangerous as pressure washing an entire home.
