Pressure Washing FAQs

Welcome to our Pressure Washing FAQ page. Here at Dura-Shine Clean, we understand that our clients in Tri-Cities, WA may have questions about our pressure washing services. This page is designed to answer those questions, provide insights, and help you make an informed decision.

What is pressure washing?

Pressure washing, otherwise referred to as power washing, is a technique for cleaning that employs high-pressure water spray for shedding any remnants of flaky paint, mold, filth, dust particles, mud or dirt off surfaces such as structures, transportation and concrete exteriors. This method of cleansing is top-notch when it comes to tackling stubborn smudges in an efficient way.

Why is pressure washing important?

Pressure washing is an effective way to maintain the exterior of your property. It removes dirt and grime that can cause damage over time. Regular pressure washing can prolong the life of your paintwork, siding, and outdoor areas. It also helps to maintain the aesthetic appeal of your property.

Is pressure washing safe for all surfaces?

Not all surfaces are suitable for pressure washing. Hard surfaces like concrete, brick, and most types of siding can withstand pressure washing. However, surfaces such as painted wood, aged bricks, or delicate materials may be damaged by the high pressure. At Dura-Shine Clean, we carefully assess each surface to determine the best and safest cleaning method.

What can be cleaned with pressure washing?

Pressure washing can be used to clean a variety of outdoor surfaces and areas, including building exteriors, sidewalks, parking lots, driveways, patios, decks, and fencing.

How often should I have my property pressure washed?

The frequency of pressure washing depends on the location and use of the property. Generally, commercial properties should consider pressure washing at least once or twice a year. However, if your property is subjected to heavy foot traffic, surrounded by trees, or is in a high-pollution area, you might need to do it more frequently.

Do I need to be present during pressure washing?

No, you don’t necessarily need to be present during the service. However, we do request access to a water source and ensure all windows and doors are closed.

Is Dura-Shine Clean environmentally friendly?

Yes, we are committed to protecting the environment. Our pressure washing methods use eco-friendly cleaning solutions and operate in a way that minimizes water waste.
