It's more than clean, it's Renew Crew Clean

Why Hire a Pressure Washing Company?

Although I wouldn’t consider myself a do-it-yourselfer, I try to tackle what I can around the house. Painting? No problem. Re-caulking a tub? You got it. Refinishing furniture? Sure. But when it comes to projects that have to do with the structure or safety of my home there is no way that I am even going to attempt. For me, that includes hiring a pressure washing company when needed.

A lot of homeowners and possible DIYers don’t understand the damage that a high pressure washer can do to your property if not done properly. Gouging of wood and brick (especially older bricks) is not only unpleasing to the eye, but can cause safety issues like splitting and splintering of wood. In the case of siding, it can result in water getting underneath the siding.

Not only can improper use of a pressure washer damage your property, it can also be unsafe! A pressure washer can very easily cut any skin it comes in contact with and even worse it can shoot water into the wound causing further, more serious issues.

For me, hiring a pressure washing company is worth the investment to ensure my space is properly and safely cleaned.

Our Renew Crew franchisees are much more than the typical pressure washing company however. What makes use different, you ask? Let me tell you. In short, it is our products and process. The typical power washing company uses chlorine or bleach based products to clean your surfaces. That product can easily damage, and in some cases kill, any grass, plants, or bushes that it comes in contact with. It usually comes in liquid form and doesn’t work its way into horizontal surfaces easily. Renew Crew’s product is an environmentally-friendly deck cleaning foam that won’t hurt your plants. Additionally, it isn’t liquid. It’s a foam that is able to stick to all surfaces, loosening dirt and buildup from outdoor surfaces.

After allowing the foam to work its magic, we are able to use a much lower amount of water pressure to rinse the surface clean, removing dirt, grime, mold, dead wood particles and more. The risk for damaging your structure is minimal (and all of our technicians are well-trained).

The last large difference between Renew Crew and the other guys is that we don’t stop at just cleaning your outdoor structure. We will then go on to protect it. While cleaning a surface will leave it looking new, if it isn’t sealed and protected, it won’t continue to look that way for long. Our protectant will keep your outdoor surfaces looking newer longer.
