Anyone can purchase a pressure washer. Simply owning a pressure washer and advertising you offer a service doesn’t mean you can operate it effectively. A pressure washer in the hands of an unskilled operator can cause a great deal of damage. Just to name a few. Wood carved into at too high of pressure, plants and lawn killed, siding blown off, paint peeled from house and even concrete cut and etched.

We are very conscious on our impact to the environment. We have valuable equipment that recovers waste water so that no water will be wasted.
I received a coupon from another pressure washing company offering very low prices, are your prices higher?
We are very competitive on our pricing. The companies that offer extremely low prices are cutting costs on equipment, using harsh chemicals and not carrying insurance. Low priced offers, according to the Better Business Bureau, result in the most complaints and unresolved problems reported to the BBB.

There is no difference between pressure washing and power washing it’s just a different terminology.
My contractor said my siding and deck are zero maintenance is this true?
Low maintenance yes, zero maintenance no. Anything left outside in the sun and humidity will get dirty. Your car gets dirty sitting in your driveway, so does your house and deck.

How much does your service cost?
There is no “set” answer to this question. The cost of our service depends on several things, including the number of light strings you’d like to hang, the size of the display you want built and how long it will take us to put your display together. Generally, our prices range from as little as $100 to as high as several thousand dollars for large residential or commercial displays.
How do you price your projects?
If you contact us, we will come out to your home or place of business and consult with you on what type of display you desire. Based upon what you’d like done, we’ll put a quote together for you.
