Are your driveways and walkways dingy or oily and posing a risk hazard? Then what you need is a professional power washing company to help you achieve your goals. Before your expert arrives, here are a few steps you should take to be prepared for the visit and prevent any delays or damage.
Clear Walkways and Driveways
Before your pressure washing services, take time to clear away any vehicles, toys or other items you may have in the driveway or scattered along walkways. This lets the contractors begin cleaning and applying degreasing solutions to the surfaces upon arrival.
Move Items You Don’t Want To Get Wet
Unless you plan to have your patio furniture pressure washed, it’s best to remove them from the work zone. Those garden tools and outdoor grills should also be vacated or securely covered in durable, waterproof plastic, but moving them is best.
Cover Electrical Sources and Gadgets
Water and electricity are a really bad combination, so be sure to remove or cover anything connected to a power source. Any in-wall security panels, sound systems and speakers and other gadgets should be securely covered in addition to any wall outlets to avert damage or electrical issues.
Take Precautions for Plants, Landscaping and Hardscaping
Plants and greenery can be sensitive and as much care as your professional pressure washing company will take to avoid them, it’s best to take precautions. Even though we use chemicals that won’t harm plants, we recommend that you store potted plants in the garage or away from the structures you plan to have pressure washed.
Cover what cannot be moved with sturdy plastic. If fencing or sidewalks with bushes and plantings nearby are on the agenda, cover them as well or request this service in advance from your powerwashing provider.
Seal Up Windows and Door Frames
Before having a residential pressure washing service, be sure that all of your windows with caulking to prevent any seepage from cracks. Do the same with doorways and ensure that your bottom barrister if you have one is sealing well. The day of the cleansing, lock the windows and doors for extra protection.
Make Plans for Pets and Kids
The loud sounds that stem from the pressure washer’s motor in addition to the water hitting the various surfaces on and around the home can be disturbing for children and pets. Make arrangements to have them somewhere off the property during the process to avoid upset.
