Pressure Washing in Winter: It Can Be Done!

pressure washing cincinnatiWe’d all like to believe that our homes are 100% safe, but the reality is that our porches, decks, and siding have the potential to grow and hide algae, mildew, or mold. And it’s not just older homes, either; according to CNN Money, over 30% of brand new homes have mold of some kind.

Pressure washing can be a very effective way of eliminating these growths, which is why many homeowners use a pressure washing service in the spring and summertime. But because winter weather can pose so many problems, most homeowners assume that it’s nearly impossible to hire a pressure washing company during the coldest months of the year. Contrary to popular belief, it actually is possible to pressure wash in the winter. While it can be a huge challenge and will depend on weather and temperature conditions, you shouldn’t put off your house washing just because it isn’t summertime.

We’ll prevent freezing water

Freezing water can occur when pressure washing in cold temperatures. By hiring us for your Cincinnati pressure washing needs, we’ll ensure that our pumps won’t be damaged by frozen water. By hiring professionals to handle your pressure washing during this season, you won’t run the risk of breaking equipment or suffering a nasty fall due to ice formation.

We’ll plan ahead

When you pressure wash in winter, you have to schedule accordingly. In the summertime, you don’t need to worry much about having enough daylight or high enough temperatures. In winter, though, you only have a certain amount of daylight hours where temperatures are adequate for the job at hand. While we can’t schedule washing when temperatures are at freezing or below, we can plan ahead of time and arrive in time to take advantage of every hour we can.

We’ll account for chemical changes

The chemicals we use in pressure washing are typically a bit less effective in colder temperatures. That’s why we aim to do all power washing during the warmest portion of the day. Some power washing companies opt to use hot water rigs or powdered chemicals as well. No matter the conditions, we’ll make sure that the process we use will have a great end result on your home.
