Pressure washing services can make the exterior of your home look refreshed, as power washing is an effective way to eliminate grime, bacteria, mildew, and other growths from various siding materials, decks, and driveways. While it’s customary for homeowners to reach out to a pressure washing company during the spring and summer, many wonder if having services during cold weather is possible. We’ll explore what you should consider before scheduling power washing in wintertime.
Factors Affecting Winter Pressure Washing Services
Here in the northeastern United States, the winters fluctuate between snow and somewhat mild, but cool days. It is days that are free of settling snow and temperatures above 40 degrees that make pressure washing in winter a possibility. Admittedly, we can’t control the weather, but many companies in our area shy away from high-powered cleanings from December through mid-March.
While the primary concern isn’t that pressure washing during winter will cause damage to a home, there are greater risks when considering windows that may become fragile during freezing temps. Additionally, the company itself has concerns that their equipment might be damaged should the water become frozen as they are spraying the home. Here at Griff’s Services, we also have concerns about our teammates getting too cold and suffering from hypothermia.
Therefore, we take all possibilities into consideration before committing to residential pressure washing services in winter. That being said, there may be a few days when an impromptu service might be possible. Some days may start out below freezing and get warmer in the afternoon, making it feasible to safely pressure wash homes. Keep in mind, that our pressure washing company can only visit so many properties in a day, so remember this when trying to schedule services in cold weather months.
Is Pressure Washing a Good Idea In the Rain?
Another question we get asked by homeowners is whether or not it’s realistic to pressure wash on rainy days, even when it’s not winter. The answer to this depends on the outdoor conditions. A light sprinkle usually won’t affect the power washing experience or the results, but heavy rain any time of year will likely require a rescheduling of services. Our teams at Griff’s Services can’t control Mother Nature, but we do our best to work around her weather plans to keep our clients’ needs met all year long!
