Pressure Washer Service Tips

When hiring a contractor for a pressure washer service, there are a few things you’ll want to make sure they have.

A good company should have up-to-date and state of the art equipment–not just a pressure washer you can buy at your Home Depot or stores like it.

They should have insurance, certifications, and follow EPA regulations concerning safe chemicals. They should also have good customer reviews on the efficacy of their pressure washing. You shouldn’t have to pressure wash your home more than once a year. 

Gather and compare several quotes from different companies. Make sure they include the price of materials (if they do), labor, and equipment so you’re getting a quote on the whole package. If they use your water, check to make sure you don’t have to pay for it. They may bring their own water instead.
