Ain't No Hose Strong Enough

Pressure washing strength

It's inevitable. At some point during the cycle of the seasons, you'll notice mold and mildew have appeared or leaves have gathered on one of the paved surfaces around your home or business.

So you grab the traditional garden hose, set the nozzle on the "jet" mode, and fire away. A spot that was once a foot in diameter now is spread out and covers a much larger area, though it appears there is less dirt.

Not so. All you've done is spread the mess, and nothing is clean. In fact, the grime now covers a larger area. So you keep spraying, and eventually, you think the problem is solved. Unfortunately, it's not.

Pressure washing a paved surface involves more than just using a hose and nozzle to remove unwanted blemishes. There is a system and procedure that includes the following:

  • Water pressure and temperature.
  • Condition of material being treated.
  • Degree of contaminants on the surface.
  • Overall desired result.

Homeowners and business owners alike might think simple sidewalk washing or concrete cleaning is a simple task. Just point the hose and blast away. This actually can cause damage if the pressure is too high or result in the aforementioned spreading of dirt and grime.

Perhaps it's time to contact a professional.

Why Pressure Washing Is A Must In Martinsburg

We live in a hot, humid area with temperature fluctuations and sometimes unpredictable weather conditions. It might be clear and beautiful in the morning, but by mid-afternoon in the summer, those West Virginia thunderstorms roll in and often pound away at your roof and property.

Your roof bears the brunt of the impacts of precipitation and weather. So scheduling roof and gutter cleaning at least twice a year will ensure the mold, mildew, grime, and other hard-to-spot contaminants are washed away using proper pressure and temperature and, if necessary, an environmentally sound antibacterial detergent.

While some property owners will choose the DIY option, it's essential to seek advice from professionals. They know this business better than you do and have trained professionals who will advise you on the best course of pressure washing action, from simple sidewalk cleaning to window washing to deck and fence restoration.

So, in the end, before you grab the garden hose and point and shoot, consider seeing advice from professionals like the ones at Blue Line Pressure Washing, LLC. These guys know the trade inside and out.
