Pressure Washing Services

Time can be very unkind on any structure or material, causing wear and tear as well as accumulation of dirt, grime, mold, algae, and other pollutants. More often than not, simply cleaning with water and a towel won’t cut it.

Pressure washing removes different kinds of filth, breathing new life to any surface. And, when it comes to pressure washing, there’s no better company than Washh.

What Is Pressure Washing?

Pressure washing is a cleaning method that uses water fed through a high-pressure spray. The force of the water can successfully knock stubborn filth — such as dirt, grime, mold, algae, mud, gum, and even paint — from surfaces. Although pressurized water alone can remove filth, the process usually requires the use of an accompanying detergent for a more thorough cleaning.

Types of Pressure Washers

There are four main types of pressure washers in the market today. Let’s break them down below:

Cold Water

This is the most commonly used type of pressure washer because it’s easy to use and the most affordable of the bunch. While a cold water pressure washer does pack some power, it’s usually used by everyday folk, with commercial pressure washing companies opting for more powerful models.

Hot Water

Hot water pressure washers can go up to 311 degrees Fahrenheit, which is significantly hotter than the 140-degree maximum that cold water pressure washers can reach. Cleaning with hot water generally tends to be more effective than cleaning with cold water, especially when it comes to oil and grease.


Electric pressure washers run on — you guessed it — electricity. This type of pressure washer is quite common among households because it’s lightweight, convenient, and cheaper than its gas-powered counterpart.


Gas-powered pressure washers are more powerful than ones that run on electricity. They’re often used for heavy-duty jobs. While gas-powered pressure washers are more powerful and portable than electric pressure washers, the noise and fumes can be off-putting to some people.

What Can You Pressure Wash?

Pressure washers are very versatile cleaning tools, which means you can use them on a variety of surfaces. To be more precise, here are some of the things you can clean using a pressure washer:


A pressure washer can clean all types of patios effectively and efficiently, with pressure levels varying according to the patio material. Keep your outdoor area clean and gorgeous no matter the material.

Wood Decks

If your wood deck needs a little TLC, a pressure washer can get the job done. Wood, especially delicate wood, requires a lower pressure of somewhere between 500 to 1,200 PSI. Coupled with a 25- to 40-degree nozzle, a pressure washer can quickly restore your wood deck back to its former glory.


Pressure washers can remove dirt, grime, mold, algae, and stains from your gutter, whether it’s made from aluminum, copper, steel, or vinyl. Maintaining and cleaning your gutter regularly ensures that water flows down properly and doesn’t damage your roof or flood your basement.

Tiles and Pavers

Having trouble keeping those pavers clean? A pressure washer between 1,000 to 3,000 PSI can do the trick! Regular cleaning can prevent cracking, staining, and fading, keeping your tiles or pavers in good condition.

Vinyl Siding

Your vinyl siding is susceptible to mold growth, algae stains, fading, rust stains, and your everyday dirt or grime. Keep your home’s exterior spotless and looking great using a pressure washer at 1,000 to 3,000 PSI and a 25-degree nozzle.


Due to its uneven surface, stucco can easily collect dirt, grime, and other filth. Synthetic stucco demands low-pressure water since it’s more fragile. To clean synthetic stucco, use a pressure level of 1,500 PSI and below. Traditional stucco, on the other hand, can take a higher pressure level of about 1,500 to 2,000 PSI paired with a 25- to 40-degree nozzle tip.

Concrete Surfaces

Concrete surfaces like driveways and sidewalks can be difficult to maintain without the proper tools. Thankfully, a pressure washer can quickly and effectively clean your concrete surface and restore it to its near-original form. Concrete surfaces can take a pressure level of about 2,500 to 3,000 PSI coupled with a 25-degree nozzle.


A common question people ask is, “Can you pressure wash roofs?” The short answer is yes. Keeping your roof clean is paramount to maintaining its condition and preventing leaks. A pressure washer can successfully clean any type of roof — asphalt, clay, concrete, wood, slate, or metal.


Because they’re more fragile, windows call for a gentler wash, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use a pressure washer. Maintain a pressure level of 500 PSI to effectively clean windows. Just make sure they’re closed and have no gaps for water to leak through!


Awnings can add a certain charm to any commercial property, and they’re also used to protect customers from the elements. Over time, though, they can also deteriorate. Maintain your awnings with pressure washing. Use a low pressure level along with a 40- to 60-degree nozzle to avoid damaging the material.

Fleet Vehicles

Your business’s vehicles carry your brand name, so it’s imperative to keep them spotless and in near-perfect condition at all times. Pressure wash your fleet using warm water, 2,000 to 3,000 PSI, and a 25- to 40-degree nozzle tip.

Dumpster Pads

Due to their function, dumpster pads are notoriously dirty and smelly. Their proximity to your commercial property, though, can affect business. That’s why it’s important to clean your dumpster pads frequently with pressure washing. High-pressure warm water can effectively clean dirt, dust, oil, grease, mold, and various stains from dumpster pads.

Loading Docks

Loading docks see a lot of traffic every day, which is why they can quickly accumulate dirt, grime, and other pollutants. Make sure your loading dock remains safe and clean with a pressure washing machine set between 2,500 to 3,000 PSI and a 25-degree nozzle tip.

Parking Garages

For many businesses, parking garages are the first thing customers see. Make a good impression right off the bat by keeping your parking garage clean. Remove dirt, dust, grime, oil, rust, mold, and stains using a pressure washer set to 2,500 to 3,000 PSI.

Docks and Marinas

Docks and marinas tend to become slippery, especially due to the buildup of dirt, algae, and other contaminants. No matter what your dock is made of, pressure washing can keep it spotless, safe, and in good condition.

Pressure Washing vs Traditional Cleaning Methods

It’s normal to feel skeptical about pressure washing, especially when you haven’t seen it in action yet. But, compared to simply washing with soap and water, pressure washing offers many benefits. What edge does pressure washing have over traditional cleaning methods?

More Effective

Pressure washing is more effective at cleaning surfaces than washing with just soap and water. Because of the added pressure, stubborn dirt and grime easily get knocked off. It’s also possible to adjust the pressure level according to the surface material and pollutant you’re cleaning.

With pressure washing, you no longer need to spend hours on end scrubbing unyielding filth off your exterior wall or siding. Just stand back and let the pressure washer work its magic.

More Time-Efficient

Traditional cleaning methods are infinitely more time-consuming than pressure washing, especially when you have to clean off stubborn dirt and stains. Because pressure washing eliminates the need for elbow grease, you can accomplish a cleaning job in significantly less time.

Smart Use of Water

A common misconception most people have about pressure washing is that it uses too much water. In truth, though, pressure washers require less water to clean surfaces than traditional cleaning methods.

Pressure washing machines rely more on the pressure level than the amount of water to clean surfaces. This pressure allows for easy removal of filth without needing to scrub and rinse the same spot over and over again. If you want to conserve water when you clean, go with pressure washing.

Why Hire Washh Professionals?

Now that you know the benefits of pressure washing, you may feel tempted to take a DIY approach to it. Although you can rent pressure washers at your local stores, it’s considerably smarter to outsource your pressure washing services to a professional like Washh. Here’s why:

Start With Inspection

Washh begins every job with a thorough inspection of the surface to be cleaned. Our technicians make sure to examine every corner of the surface, taking note of any cracks, openings, or other potential hazards in our report.

The Right Pressure Level

Not all surfaces require the same pressure level, as too high a pressure can damage certain materials. When you take a DIY approach, you risk using the wrong pressure level and can end up dealing irreversible damage.

Our expert technicians are well-versed in handling all types of surface materials. We know which pressure level to use — whether it’s on vinyl, wood, concrete, stucco, etc. — to effectively clean the surface without damaging it.

For instance, concrete can take a higher pressure level at around 3,000 PSI, whereas wood requires a softer touch at around 500 to 600 PSI.

The Correct Nozzles

Nozzles can also have a direct impact on the surface material. Using the wrong nozzle can damage the surface in the same way using the wrong pressure level does.

Washh has an assortment of nozzles at our disposal — from the fan-type 65-degree nozzles to the blast-type 0-degree nozzles. We know what nozzle to use for every type of job. This allows us to strip away any stubborn grime or filth while simultaneously keeping the surface in good condition.

Eco-Friendly Detergents

Washh knows the environment is important, and our products reflect that. We use eco-friendly detergents that get the job done without harming the environment. Our proprietary mixture effectively cleans surfaces and removes pollutants.

Safety Precautions

Safety is our number one priority here at Washh, which is why all of our technicians come dressed in personal protective equipment. We also make sure to complete a Job Hazard Analysis form before every job.

Work Within Your Schedule

We understand that you’re not always available to receive our pressure washing services. That’s why we adjust to your schedule and work only within the hours you wish.

Our technicians do their best to complete every pressure washing job on time. Of course, every job is different, and larger jobs tend to take more time. Still, we can work depending on your preferred schedule.


Although you might think that doing it yourself is cheaper, the reverse is actually true. Amateur pressure washers tend to make mistakes and have to redo the entire job multiple times. Worse yet, you might deal irreparable damage. This wastes time, resources, and money.

With Washh, you can rest assured that we’ll do the job right the first time around. If we do cause damage, which rarely happens, we have the insurance to cover it. We also offer pressure washing packages that suit your budget, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
