Commercial Pressure Washing in Wichita: Why It Pays To Hire A Pro

Today we talk about how DIY pressure washing can cause big problems for you and your business: environmental problems, property damage, and serious personal injuries. Discover the facts behind power washing, and then give us a call at (316) 655-5665.

Let’s say you need to clean up your business property. Maybe your building is weather-worn or covered in nasty green mildew. Maybe you have a big problem with Wichita’s downtown pigeon population turning your sidewalks into a public restroom. Maybe your property was recently vandalized and now you’ve got some serious graffiti you need to get cleaned up. Whatever the scenario, a big question faces you and your business:

Should you buy/rent a pressure washer and do it yourself or should you hire a professional power washing company to do it for you?

It’s tempting to think that doing it yourself is the way to go– you tell yourself you’ll be able to save a bunch of money. And, hey, power washing looks kind of fun, doesn’t it?

Before you rush out to the rental center and pick up a power washer, we’d like to take a minute to explain why it pays to hire a professional. It turns out there’s a lot more to effective, safe power washing than just shooting a hose at dirt.

Why it will pay to hire a pro like Clean Rite:

1) Pressure washing on your own can cause serious injuries.

A common misconception is that a commercial pressure washer is just a hose– with a little more juice. A little more juice is right! Pressure washers employ up to 4,000 pounds of pressure per square inch. That’s enough juice to carve holes in your building’s siding, seriously disfigure and splinter wooden decks or panels, and literally tear into human flesh. That kind of pressure becomes a hot, slicing knife when it comes in contact with our soft skin. Don’t believe us? Check out this video about the dangers of pressure washers.

On the other hand, the trained professionals at Clean Rite Pressure Washing are well-versed in pressure washer safety. We’ll make sure to protect you and your clients from dangerous washer spray.

2) Pressure washing on your own can destroy your property.

In addition to showing the harm of power washers to the human body, the video above shows how unprofessional power washing can really batter your business property. Did you see how that power washer sliced through pieces of wood like they were steak? Incorrect calibration of a power washer can result in holes in your vinyl siding or wooden decks. If a nozzle isn’t positioned correctly on the sprayer, it can come flying off, becoming a water-propelled bullet headed right for your business’s windows.

Plus, unprofessional high-pressure washing can fire water up into the cracks of your building’s siding, causing mold and mildew within the building. Getting these problems fixed is known to cost upwards of $10,000! Hiring Clean Rite to take care of your project can save you time, money, and major repairs down the road.

3) Pressure washing on your own can get you in trouble with the law.

Did you know that your company is responsible for the quality of water that it pumps into Wichita’s municipal drainage system? When you decide to take pressure washing into your own hands, you take a dangerous risk legally: your company can be prosecuted and fined for environmental pollution unless you’re complying with Federal and state regulations on water runoff.

When you chemically clean your business property, those chemicals inescapably run down onto the surrounding ground, potentially damaging plants on your property and spreading to the city’s drainage system. You won’t think much of it until you and your company are fined for failing to comply with Wichita’s Storm Water Ordinance, which requires that any discharge of water be chemically-reduced. These fines can total up to $50,000!

Meanwhile, Clean Rite Pressure Washing uses environmentally-friendly methods to wash your property while using a complex wastewater collection system to prevent harmful chemicals from contaminating public water. We also provide completely chemical-free cleaning options, making sure to accommodate to your company’s preference and values.
