Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions about Power Washing / Pressure Wash.

Can you give me a quote over the phone without seeing my house?2020-01-12T18:53:56-06:00

Yes, but preferred not. Our trained professionals know what questions to ask in order to gain the information needed to give an accurate quote. We also use city records to obtain the square footage of your home to aid in this process. Some quotes ( actually majority ) require Us to visit your property to give a full quote.

I received another company’s coupon offering very low prices, are your services more expensive?2020-01-12T18:52:43-06:00

Low priced offers, according to the Better Business Bureau, result in the most complaints and unresolved problems reported to the BBB. We take pride in creating long term relationships with our customers. This is the result of our excellent customer service.

Are all power wash companies alike?2020-01-12T18:52:19-06:00

Anyone can purchase a pressure washer. Simply owning a pressure washer and advertising that you offer a service doesn’t mean you can operate it effectively. A pressure washer in the hands of an unskilled operator will do a great deal more harm than good. We have seen decks ruined by too much pressure and harsh chemicals, siding blown off houses, plants and yards killed, windows broken, and even new paint peeled.

What is the dark staining on my siding?2020-01-12T18:51:45-06:00

Most likely it is mold. All mold needs to grow is moisture (humidity) and a food source… and it will grow anywhere.

My contractor said my siding and deck were zero maintenance.2020-01-12T18:51:24-06:00

Low maintenance yes, zero maintenance no. Anything left outside in this area’s humidity and sun will get dirty. Your car gets dirty sitting in your driveway and so does your deck.

How is pricing for my power washing service determined?2020-01-12T18:49:59-06:00

The cost for each power washing service is dependent on a number of factors, including home size and siding type, the condition of the home, the time required, and other factors unique to your home / property.

What areas of my home can be power washed?2020-01-12T18:49:25-06:00

Power washing services are ideal for many areas of your home, including:

  • House siding
  • The roof of your home
  • Outdoor concrete surfaces, such as driveways, sidewalks, walkways, patios and porches
  • Gutters
  • Composite and wood decks
Is power washing safe for my home exterior?2020-01-12T18:49:05-06:00

  • Vinyl
  • Aluminum
  • Brick

Do I have to be home on the day of service?2020-01-12T18:48:09-06:00

If you are not going to be home on day of service, please remember to close all windows, clear your driveway and put away fragile decorations on your home and deck.

Why Do I need My House Pressure Washed?2020-01-12T18:47:19-06:00

It is imperative to maintain a clean property for the aesthetic value and much-desired curb appeal, along with providing lasting protection against building material degradation. When mold, mildew, algae and other airborne contaminants are allowed to remain on the exterior surfaces of a property, they will contribute to premature paint failure and can also cause permanent staining on your siding material, concrete & gutters. Their root systems will grow into surfaces causing it to split and crack.

Washing the home’s exterior is an easy and affordable way to improve the appearance of your home. Even homes with brick and stucco siding can be washed if done correctly. Did you know you can add as much as 5 to 10 percent to the value of your home by presenting it in a clean, well taken care of state?

Another reason is health. Mildew and mold are not good for your respiratory system and can create allergies. If your home is washed regularly, the mildew cannot spread to the inside of your home and start new growth inside.

Why should I pressure wash/clean my concrete?2020-01-12T18:46:40-06:00

Concrete cleaning is as much protection as it is aesthetic. Pressure washing concrete removes built up dirt and grime. Pressure washing and cleaning concrete can also help prevent a slippery surface. Concrete can become a breeding ground for mildew. This is especially important around swimming pools, fountains, and ponds.

Will high pressure damage my home?2020-01-12T18:46:20-06:00

Yes, high pressure can wreak havoc on your home’s surfaces. Without proper training, you can rip the siding off a home, etch a deck causing permanent damage or injury can be caused if high pressure touches skin or clothing. Grimy Paws Pressure Washing technicians use only safe and tested methods for pressure washing.

How often should I pressure wash my home?2020-01-12T18:45:38-06:00

House washing services are recommended every 2 years to keep built up dirt and grime from burrowing into your property. Grimy Paws Pressure Washing has perfected the art of the house wash. We use the highest quality home-safe chemicals and a clean house washing that will last.

Are the chemicals Grimy Paws Pressure Washing uses safe?2020-01-12T18:44:45-06:00

The surface you need cleaned will determine what chemical will be used. How dirty your surface is will determine how much chemical will be used. Our power washers allow for variable pressures to keep minimal pressure on a particular surface. Cleaning vinyl siding with our soft washing technique uses a mixture of eco-friendly chemicals and very low pressure. For some concrete cleaning jobs, we do not need any chemicals. Just good ole fashioned water pressure and a flat surface cleaner designed specifically for concrete cleaning. The deck cleaning chemicals we use depend on the type of deck and staining application that is currently being used.

Why should I choose a professional to pressure wash my home?2020-01-12T18:43:42-06:00

Pressure washing can quickly become a science project without proper experience. The surface, cleaning product, pressure and type of pressure washer you’re using all play a vital role in how clean your surface will get. More importantly, for how long they will stay clean too. Grimy Paws Pressure Washing understands what it takes to clean even the most difficult surfaces. From vinyl siding, to concrete, decks and paver stones, we have the products, equipment to guarantee you a clean surface, every time.

What’s the difference between pressure and power washing?2020-01-12T18:42:52-06:00

There is really no difference between the two terms. Either phrase can be substituted for our service. Don’t be concerned about the term “power” or “pressure. Grimy Paws Pressure Washing technicians are trained to use the proper pressure to clean each surface.

What are your payment terms?2018-07-07T06:36:20-06:00
