One of the simplest, most cost-effective ways to improve the look and value of your property.
Dirt and mildew buildup on the siding of your home is a common issue in Houston. Most homeowners tend to ignore it, assuming that it is not important. However, they do not understand that this buildup can damage their siding. The best solution to the problem is getting pressure washing services. While some homeowners wonder if it’s better for them to do it themselves, most people soon realize that hiring a professional company like South Coast Pressure Washing is a better choice.
DAMAGE DONE BY AMATEUR PRESSURE WASHERS
Most of the damage done to siding is caused by amateurs—either homeowners or unprofessional hires—and the reason is because they use high pressure when only low-pressure cleaning is required. Amateur pressure washers have the misconception that pressure washing means they have to use high pressure, so hiring the wrong washer or attempting to do it yourself can lead to the following issues:
1. The seals on double-paned windows can be broken by the high pressure from the washer. The windows will be fogged and water will remain trapped inside.
2. Water damage to doors and windows because high pressure water entered into siding and trim
3. Roof damage and torn shingles from high pressure jets. Only a non-pressure process should be used while cleaning the roof.
4. Due to high-pressure, window screens can be torn. It might damage the stucco, vinyl siding or wood trim and decking.
5. High pressure can strip off the paint and cause damage to wood siding.
Hiring the wrong company means that you will have to spend extra money to repair the damage!
THINGS TO CONSIDER
You might have been wondering how you can differentiate between the professionals and amateurs. Here are some of the important things to consider when the right hiring pressure washing professionals in Houston.
TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGY
First, pay attention to the tools and technology that the company uses. You have to make sure that they have all the right tools needed to perform high quality washing services. Some important tools to consider are:
1. Industrial grade pressure washer with precision settings
2. Eye protection
3. Industrial hose
4. Wire brush
5. Hearing protection
6. Soft bristle brush
7. Professional grade cleaners
EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE
One of the most important things you have to consider is the experience of the company. The employees should be properly trained, because that is the only way they will provide the best service. Remember that sometimes the years do not matter, because there are many established companies that do not provide consistent services. Make sure to check the reviews and ratings of the company you are planning to hire. At South Coast Pressure Washing, we are proud of our glowing reviews and perfect ratings!
WHICH DETERGENTS DO THEY USE?
A common mistake most individuals make is that they do not pay attention to the detergents used for pressure washing. Extra strong detergents can damage the seal and surface of your siding, because most detergents have strong acidic properties which will react with materials in your siding. It is also important that the detergent is properly diluted to the correct proportions for the material in question. At South Coast Pressure Washing, we only use the best detergents and mix them to precise specifications.
OPTIONAL REPAIR SERVICES
In Houston, damages from pressure washing are common. However, only professional companies will take responsibility for any accidental damage to your house. At South Coast Pressure Washing, we assure that nothing happens to the exterior of your house, but we recognize that accidents do happen, so we provide full repair services for any incidental damages. Our experts carry repairing tools with them for emergency service, and after we are done with pressure washing, we will inspect your house to check that nothing has been damaged. If we notice any signs of damage, we immediately notify the homeowner and repair it on site.
It is important to check the certification of the company you are planning to work with. Remember that most of the amateur companies will not be certified because they will not be able to pass the test. On the other hand, professionals like South Coast Pressure Washing have a reputation to maintain, and that is why we provide you with the best services. We also insure all of our workers, which means that if an accident happens on site, all costs will be covered by the company.

The services should be within your budget, which is why South Coast Pressure Washing has different packages available to meet every homeowner’s needs. This way, you can select the package that would be best for your budget and you will not have to pay for any pressure washing services that you do not require.
