Question 8. Do you bring water to the job?
Answer 8. It is rare that we bring water to the job site. Usually we will connect up and use the customers water source. This keeps us from hauling heavy water all over town. Water is very cheap.

Question 10. I got a letter from my HOA saying I needed to clean the oil spot from my driveway. Can you help me with this?
Answer 10. Yes, please check out our Driveway Oil Stain Removal page for more information. These oil spots are usually caused by a car leaking oil. Standard pressure washing service will not remove old oil stains that have soaked down into the concrete, it will only remove the oil from the surface of the concrete. We us a special chemical to break down the oil that is deep down in the concrete. Most of the stain will be removed the day of the service. The stain will continue to fade away for several months. It is a good idea to get the leaking car fixed so the oil spots does not return.
Question 11. How often should I power wash my driveway?
Answer 11. This depends on many factors. The heat and humidity in Houston TX and surrounding areas are a great environment for mold, mildew and algae to grow. This is often what gives the driveway, walks, porch and patio the dark and dirty look. If any of these areas are being shaded by your house or trees, the shaded areas will usually have more of a problem with mold, mildew and algae. Other factors like dust, dirt, leaves, tree pollen, grass, and other things are also building up every day. In general, after 1 or 2 years many homes will see a noticeable improvement by using our power washing Houston service.

Power washing is typically the most effective way of cleaning the exterior surfaces around your home or business like the driveway, walks, porch, patio, pool deck, and more. This being said, make sure the company you use has right experience for your job. This is a service that the lowest price bidder, usually a new inexperienced pressure washer, can lead to costly damage. A window cleaner can leave a streak on the window and it's no big deal, they just clean the window again. An inexperienced power washer can permanently damage your concrete by leaving etch marks on the surface or removing the smooth cream off of the top of your concrete. This is typically caused by using the wrong tip or applying to much pressure for the surface being cleaned. Our industry is saturated by people who run down to Lowes and spend $200 to $400 on a consumer grade power washer and start a cleaning business. For many of these people, this is the first pressure washer they have owned and operated. When they are just starting out they will attract customers by offering very low prices. It is during this learning phase when most property damage is done. Many of these companies are out of business in just a few months. It takes a couple of years to gain the experience required to tell what will and will not damage the different surfaces around you property. Your house or building is very expensive. Make sure you hire the best power washing service company that has the experience for your project. We strive to be the best power washing company in Houston TX.
