Before and After – Metal Cleaning
We recently completed a pressure washing job that required cleaning concrete, stucco, fiberglass, windows, steel and asphalt. As a pressure washing contractor in the Philadelphia area we offer services on virtually every building and construction material there is. While you can rent a machine for about $75 a day at your local hardware store, keep in mind they may not offer the specific chemicals needed to clean multiple surfaces.
The most important aspect and what makes our pressure washer different from those that are generally rented at a hardware store is the water temperature. Most commercial grade pressure washing machines have the ability to heat water up to 250 degrees to remove those tough stains that may require heat to dissolve like oil spills.
From here, it is a three step process. You spray on whichever chemical you choose (depends on the material you are pressure washing), scrub down any necessary areas, and spray clean. There is really not much too it. You just need to learn which chemical to use on which product. A shingled roof may need chlorine, an asphalt driveway may stronger bleach, while certain types of vinyl siding may need hot water only. In this case you would use gutter cleaner, which you want to wear gloves and eye protection with.
