DO YOU HAVE TO PRESSURE WASH YOUR HOME PRIOR TO PAINT?
Painting over a dirty surface does not provide a good or sound foundation for the paint to anchor to. Exterior painting demands a clean surface prior to applying paint. This is why it’s vital to remove any dirt, algae, oil and other pollutants from the surfaces to be painted.
HOT WATER PRESSURE WASHING
When you wash your dishes at home, you aren’t likely to use cold water. Why? Because cold water doesn’t break down the waste on your dishes. So why would you use cold water to pressure wash the exterior of your house? Cold water moves oil and grime around, whereas hot water breaks down oil and dirt.
3 KEY FACTORS OF HOT WATER PRESSURE WASHING
With these three key factors, hot water pressure washing can leave the exterior of your home far more clean than a standard cold power washing.
Heat – When heating water to 200 degrees the water molecules break free and create steam. The steam makes the cleaning agent much more effective in penetrating grime at a molecular level, producing a far cleaner wash and a quicker dry.
Equipment – We custom built two pressure washing trucks with industry leading equipment. Our pressure washing equipment cleans with water up to 250 degrees at 6 gallons of hot water per minute, and pressure up to 3500PSI. This significant hot water helps remove stubborn mold, dirt, oil and other grime.
Cleaning Detergent – We use Mean Green which is formulated to remove pollution, dirt and grime from all exterior surfaces. On most washable surfaces, inside and outside the home, nothing works better on difficult tasks. Mean Green contains more cleaning ingredients than other leading brands, making it the most powerful multi-purpose cleaner on the market.
