Power Washing

How do we define power washing? How is power washing different than pressure washing or soft washing? The main difference is the use of hot water. We use hot water and pressure in power washing. With pressure washing, there is only pressure – no hot water. There are appropriate applications for both pressure, power, and soft washing. 

Firehouse Pressure Washing implements both pressure washing and power washing. Why? Because we choose the technique based on what is being cleaned and the proper way to clean it.

For dirt and mildew removal we use pressure washing, for grease and oil removal we use power washing. Our expert cleaning crew determines what will be best upon our arrival at your home or business.

When You Need Power Washing

An example of power washing is removing oil and grease from a dumpster pad at a local restaurant. The experts on our staff are the absolute best at choosing the correct technique and tool for the job. We always start with low pressure and work our way up to high pressure when cleaning any surface. You can trust that your vinyl, stone, rock, plastic, metal, or fabric will be safe from damage.

The difference between power washing and pressure washing may not be clear to you.  We are experts at our trade and can distinguish the need for one versus the other. So, you should always hire a professional to perform exterior cleaning duties. Firehouse Pressure Washing is a licensed and insured company. We carry full workers compensation (including the ability to walk on roofs). We have the best equipment in the industry.

Firehouse Pressure Washing has a proven track record in pressure washing, power washing, soft washing, and roof cleaning. Check out our extensive Google reviews. You’ll see our reputation speaks for itself.

Our Pressure Washing History

Firehouse Pressure Washing is a member of the PWNA (Power Washers of North America). We stay on top of changes in technology and technique by attending industry events. In fact, the owner of Firehouse Pressure Washing is a frequent speaker and instructor.

The owner of Firehouse Pressure Washing washed his first house in 1994. And he has been washing houses ever since. He has trained the Firehouse staff as well as power washing professionals across the US.  Becoming an expert in any industry takes years of experience.  But beyond that, it’s important to us to help to improve the industry.

When one of our technicians arrives at your property, they follow our training regimen to the letter. We have strict processes, standard operating procedures to ensure safety and quality. These allow us to produce the best power washing results money can buy.

Why use a Fire Fighter for Power Washing?

Our experts at Firehouse Pressure Washing are all full-time firefighters.  They perform exterior cleaning on their days off from the fire department. Even the owners of Firehouse Pressure Washing were firefighters.

When firefighters are on shift at the fire station, we train on scenarios we may face in the field. Our staff is trained at the “burn building” which is a concrete structure used to simulate house fires. We train with vehicle collisions by cutting up and manipulating donated junk cars. Firefighters train on medical calls by using CPR manikins. Or other training aids such as artificial arms and legs to start IV’s and apply bandages. We also train on building construction, so we know what we are facing when we enter a building to fight a fire.

Power Washing Safety is Important

At Firehouse Pressure Washing, we carry over this training regimen to exterior cleaning. We are not only firefighters but also Emergency Medical Technicians such as EMT-I, EMT-P and FR. So, we train using proper personal protective equipment. Eye protection, respiratory protection, and skin protection to name a few. We use the knowledge we gained in medical school about PPE and body substance isolation. Working with our hands every day requires us to work safely. The Fire Department is where we learned how to be safe and effective on all job sites we work on. We pride ourselves on maintaining OSHA-approved workplace safety on our job sites.
