Here\’s how we will prepare for the power washing job:

Step #2 – Pre-Treatment Process
After we have prepared for the power washing job and discussed your specific needs and preferences, the next step is pre-treatment.
Pre-treatment involves applying a cleaning solution to the exterior surfaces of your property to loosen any tough dirt or grime. This step is especially important for surfaces that are heavily soiled or have built-up stains.
Here’s how we will perform pre-treatment:
🧽 We will mix a cleaning solution that is specifically designed for the type of surface and level of soiling on your property. Our cleaning solutions are eco-friendly and safe for plants and animals.
🧽 We will apply the cleaning solution to the exterior surfaces of your property using a low-pressure sprayer. This will allow the solution to penetrate deep into the pores of the surface and loosen any dirt or grime.
🧽 We will allow the cleaning solution to dwell on the surface for a specified amount of time. This will allow the solution to fully break down the dirt and grime, making it easier to remove during the power washing step.
🧽 We will rinse the surface with water to remove any excess cleaning solution. This will also allow us to check the effectiveness of the pre-treatment and determine if any additional pre-treatment is needed.
Pre-treatment is an important step in the power washing process, as it helps to ensure that the surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and free of dirt and grime.

Step #3- Pressure Washing Process
After completing the preparation and pre-treatment steps, the power washing process typically involves the following steps:
🧽 Assemble the power washer and attach the appropriate nozzle for the job. Make sure that the water supply is turned on and that the power washer is properly connected to the water source.
🧽 Adjust the pressure setting on the power washer to the appropriate level for the surface you are cleaning. Start with the lowest pressure setting and work your way up as needed to avoid damaging the surface.
🧽 Begin power washing the surface, holding the nozzle at a slight angle and moving it in a steady back-and-forth motion. This will help to evenly distribute the water and cleaning solution, and also prevent streaks from forming on the surface.
🧽 Continue power washing the surface until it is clean, making sure to rinse the surface thoroughly with water to remove any remaining cleaning solution and dirt.
Step # #4 – Rinse and Dry Process
After completing the power washing process, the next steps typically involve rinsing and drying the surface.
To rinse the surface, use the power washer\’s highest pressure setting and hold the nozzle at a slight angle to evenly distribute the water and remove any remaining cleaning solution and dirt.
Be sure to rinse the entire surface thoroughly, and avoid standing too close to the surface to avoid damaging it.
Once the surface has been rinsed, allow it to air dry or use a clean towel or cloth to dry it off. This will help to prevent streaks and spots from forming, and will also help to protect the surface from future damage.
After the surface is dry, it is crucial to inspect it for any remaining dirt or debris and to clean up any remaining cleaning solution or water. This will help to ensure that the surface is clean and ready for use, and will also help to prevent any damage or staining.
#5 – Final Inspection of Power Washing Job
The final step in power washing is to conduct a thorough inspection of the surface after the work is done. This involves carefully examining the surface to make sure that it is clean and free of any remaining dirt or debris, and also looking for any signs of damage or wear.
During the inspection, it\’s important to look for streaks, spots, or other imperfections on the surface, and to clean them up if necessary. This may involve reapplying the cleaning solution and rinsing the surface again, or using a soft cloth or sponge to gently scrub away any remaining dirt or grime.
It\’s also important to inspect the power washer itself to make sure that it is in good working order and that all of its components are properly assembled and functioning. This may involve checking the nozzle, hose, and other parts of the power washer to ensure that they are clean and free of any clogs or obstructions.
