Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered By Gleaming Gutters LLC

You would be amazed at how many questions we get from customers about pressure washing. Both existing and new customers are always curious to know what it is that we exactly do. And of course, with good reason; we're cleaning their property! It's only natural to inquire about what a pressure washing company is planning on doing to the place where you and your family lay your head; not to mention, you want to make sure they know what they're doing.

In other cases, some customers just want to inquire so that they are knowledgeable about the profession and our particular services; they may even have a friend or relative that they wish to refer to us. Knowing more about our services will make it easier for existing customers to talk us up to new customers. Usually, these are the most frequently asked questions that customers have for us.

Is There Anything I Can Do To Reduce How Often I Need To Clean My Gutters?

Yes, there is. Installing gutter guards or leaf guards on your drainage system will block leaves and other debris from your gutter; which will help you avoid possible buildup. Without that buildup clogging your gutters, you won't have to clean your gutters as often; which saves you both time and money.

What Is "Soft Washing" And How Is It Different From "Pressure Washing" Services?

The type of washing is going to depend on how your home is built, the materials used, and its surroundings. Softwash is a low-pressure washing method suitable for fragile materials like roof shingles; while regular pressure washing is mainly used on more durable and concrete surfaces. Typically, you'll be getting one or the other done to your home unless you're getting your entire home done top to bottom. In that case, you're going to want a soft wash for the roof, windows, and sidings and a pressure wash for your driveway, walkways, and patios. Overall, the job would need to be broken into two phases — the first phase would be pressure washing all the hard surfaces, and the second phase of soft washing for the rest of the home.

Do You Use Any Harmful Chemicals In Your Exterior Cleaning Processes?

We've found several environmentally friendly ways to make pressure washing more effective during our short time in the pressure washing business. Oil, grease, grime, mildew, rust stains, bird droppings—you name it. While we never know what stains will pop up next, we can use a pressure washer to remove them; especially when we combine a high-pressure stream with a suitable detergent. Our experts combine the finest biodegradable and environmentally-friendly cleaners to produce excellent results.

How Often Should I Get My Gutter Cleaned?

Speaking in general terms, you should make a point of cleaning your gutters at least twice a year. Depending on what sort of foliage you have near your home (such as pine trees), you may want to clean once every three months.
