Hiring A Pressure Washing Company
The 5 Most Important Questions You Should Ask:
Finding the right pressure washing company can be difficult. You don’t want just anyone with a pressure washer cleaning your home. You wan’t a professional that will take care in cleaning your property. You want someone with integrity, experience, and insurance. Here are a few questions to ask when qualifying a company to work around your home:
Are You Insured?
This is the most important question you need to ask any pressure washing company you are planning to hire. Uninsured pressure washing companies are typically not as experienced or professional as companies with insurance. It is very possible to damage property while cleaning with pressure washers and chemicals if you are not properly trained. Not having insurance is a red flag. This is why Blue Mountain Services carries both general liability and workers comp insurance policies.
Do You Clean Siding With Pressure?
If they answer yes to this question you should run fast and far. Siding should only be washed using the soft wash method. It is by far the safest and most effective way of cleaning your homes siding. For more information on soft washing, see our page on house washing.
Do You Have A Website?
Having a website isn’t everything, but it does show you how serious a pressure washing company is about their industry. It’s a clue that the company you are dealing with is business minded and customer oriented. Again, its not the greatest indication, but it is something that should be considered when choosing a power washing company.
Do Your Technicians Wear Uniforms?
Uniforms are a minimum standard of how serious a company is about their business. Chances are that employees who wear uniforms will be extremely professional through the entire cleaning process. If the “guy” says no, they do not wear uniforms it is a reflection of the level of professionalism you are dealing with.
How Many Years Of Experience Do You Have
It goes without saying that experience is very important within any trade. Power Washing is no different! You can’t just buy a machine and know what to do immediately, and there is no amount of YouTube you can watch that will make up for hands on experience! So please, take the time to ask before you hire the wrong company!
