1. What is involved in the Cleaning Process?
Pressure washing isn't simple, and if improperly done it can actually damage or destroy some types of surfaces. An experienced pressure washing company should offer different methods and processes to clean different surfaces and to prevent damage. For example, a roof requires low to no-pressure clean and a driveway requires a very high-pressure clean. Make sure that the pressure washing company you hire offers both pressure washing and soft washing.
2. What Equipment and Supplies does the Company Use?
The best pressure washing companies use high-quality supplies and equipment. A company that uses state-of-the-art equipment and supplies takes pride in their business. Be wary of companies that use lower quality supplies or outdated equipment.
3. What about the Company's Reviews, Before and After Photos, and Testimonials?
It is easy to review a company's work. It is even easier for the company to provide examples of their work in pictures and ask former customers for feedback. Make sure to look up any reviews the company has and if they have few or negative reviews or testimonials, be wary. Research their online reputation and compare it to the quality of their work and customer service. Ask if they can refer past customers that you can contact. If a company cannot provide examples of their quality of past work, for example with before and after photos, or any way to talk to a past customer, don't trust them.
4. Is the Pressure Washing Company Insured? Do they have Workers' Compensation?
Liability insurance and worker's compensation is crucial if any damage occurs during the cleaning process because you will be covered by the company. This is also true if any injury occurs to a worker on your property during the job. Always ask the company to provide proof of liability insurance and workers' compensation before they start any pressure cleaning work.
5. Does the Pressure Washing Company Provide A Free Quote?
Any pressure washing company that cannot provide a quote in writing prior to beginning a job, should be avoided. Do not accept a quote over the phone. Pressure washing companies should always come to your home to review the prospective prior to providing a quote.
6. Is the Lowest Quote the Best?
You know the adage - you get what you pay for. We all want to pay a fair price for professional and experienced work. We know that cost is important, but hiring the pressure washing company with the lowest bid may not be wise. Many times, a company bids low to get the job, only to cut corners to make a profit. It's better to compare pricing, consider all these questions and then make a decision to pay for a quality job.
7. Does the Pressure Washing Company Provide a Guarantee?
Any credible pressure washing company offers a strong written guarantee. The guarantee means that they stand behind and are confident in the quality of their work, and have the expertise to do the job...
8. Is the Pressure Washing Company Environmentally Friendly
Does the company use environmentally friendly products in their process? There are several methods used to pressure clean your driveway. Many use damage causing expensive detergents and potent chemicals. In most cases, pressure washing can clean your driveway without chemicals. And, if a cleaner is necessary, there are bio-friendly cleaners available. In fact, we use cleaners that are safe for people, animals, and the environment.
9. Is the Pressure Washing Company Flexible?
Is the pressure washing company attuned to your needs and flexible enough to work with your schedule? If not, it's a testament to a poor level of customer service.
