Everyone knows how important it is to keep the outside of our houses clean. This will prevent premature aging, plus it will reduce maintenance and save money. When comparing the reasonably low price of pressure washing to the high cost of home repairs, it makes perfect sense for home owners to choose to have their house pressure washed on a regular basis.

There is a lot more to pressure washing a home or business than meets the eye. Just because a person has a truck and a power washer does NOT qualify them as a qualified cleaning contractor. Occasionally these people will completely ruin decks, driveways, and homes.

One of the best reasons to hire a reliable and experienced San Francisco pressure washing company is to protect your property. This is a sensible decision for this company will take care of your needs. A real pressure washing company will do countless of hours of research and testing to make sure their methods are the safest and most effective.

Another benefit is variety. This pressure cleaning service should include a wide selection of specialties that will prevent you from looking for multiple companies to do the work that you need done. Listed below are some of the most prevalent pressure washing services offered by many San Francisco pressure washing companies.

  1. Roof Cleaning of House or Business
  2. Building Washing of House or Business
  3. Wood Deck Sealing & Staining
  4. Gutter Cleaning of House or Business
  5. Washing Services
  6. Deck Cleaning
  7. Commercial Applications

Select a professional pressure washing company that is equipped with the right equipment, chemicals, and all the appropriate requirements. These expert cleaners will be your best bet for a quality cleaning job that is done right. You will want to make sure the pressure washing specialist is insured, does this work full time, has been in business for a reasonable length of time, has client testimonials, and pictures of their previous jobs which will give you the results you anticipate when it comes to pressure washing your home or business.

Finally, follow this advice to confirm you will get the best San Francisco pressure washing company for you:

  • Be sure you understand the risks that come with pressure washing your home. It will help to reduce the risks if you are prepared with knowledge.

  • Get more than one estimate from different pressure washing contractors. Getting more than one estimate permits you to compare the companies. If you want to find the best contract among the power washing choices, you will need to devote both money and time for this project. With each of the different estimates, get detailed information about the scope, the processes and the risks of the pressure washing job.
  • Make sure the pressure washing representative will visit the job site before giving you an estimate on the cost for the services. You will want to use this as a method of evaluating the professional based on how they calculate the cost and assess the job site. Besides the cost, the pressure washing specialist should offer you the success rate of the project.

It's best to choose a Diamond Certified pressure washing company because all certified companies have passed an in-depth ratings process that most other companies can't pass. If you want quality from a pressure washing company in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area, you can have confidence choosing a Diamond Certified company.

Diamond Certified reports are available online for all certified companies. And you'll never be fooled by fake reviews. That's because all research is performed in live telephone interviews of actual customers.

If you can't find a Diamond Certified pressure washing companies within reach, you'll have to do some research on your own. If you do, it's wise to call some references provided by your pressure washing company.

Keep in mind, though, that references provided to you by the pressure washing professional are not equal in value to the large random sample of customers surveyed during the Diamond Certified ratings process. That's because references given to customers from companies are cherry-picked instead of randomly selected from all their customers. So the contractors will likely give you a few customers to call that they know are satisfied.

If you do call references on your own, specifically ask for a list of the company's 10 most recent customers. This will help avoid them giving you the names of only customers they know were satisfied.

  1. Did the San Francisco pressure washing company you hired seem interested to your input?
  2. If you need local power washing services in the future, will you consider hiring this company?
  3. Did the pressure washing professional provide answers to questions to your satisfaction?
  4. Were you satisfied with the service from the (pressure washing company's name)?
  5. What type of pressure washing project did you hire the pressure washing company to complete?
  6. Were there any unexpected costs? What were these?
  7. Did the pressure washing company clean up after completing the job?
  8. Would you recommend this wood pressure washing company to your family and friends?
  9. Was the pressure washing professional punctual?

Ways to End Conflict Quickly with Pressure Washing Companies in San Francisco

The reality is many pressure washing companies in San Francisco, including the larger neighborhoods of Sunset District, Richmond District, Mission District, Tenderloin, and Bernal Heights, are honest and do look out for their customers' best interests. However, you should know what to do if you are ever unhappy with your local pressure washing company's service or work.

If there is a problem with the pressure washing project, or the service you received from your pressure washing expert, immediately talk with the service contractor. It is often best to resolve problems directly with the pressure washing professional, minimizing conflict and getting your pressure washing project done right and on time.

When discussing the issue with the pressure washing company, keep this instruction in mind:

  • You may legally withhold payment until the dispute is resolved to your liking.
  • Remain calm and polite.
  • Let your pressure washing company know that you're willing to compromise or negotiate a mutually-beneficial agreement.
  • Set a deadline for resolution, and tell the pressure washing company that you are willing to agree on a mutually-beneficial solution.
  • If you do not get a suitable response, consider sending a letter that outlines the problem and how you would like it resolved. Send the letter by certified mail and request a return receipt. If the problem continues, it may be time for outside intervention.
  • You do have the final say. The installer was hired by you to complete a project that you are paying for, to your specifications.
  • You may legally withhold payment until the dispute is resolved to your liking.
  • Review the contract specifications with your contractor and attempt to verbally resolve any problems in person.

Document your concerns in writing with the pressure washing company or take a photograph if you have worries about the quality of the work or the materials used. Write down the pressure washing company's response to your complaints in case you need records for future arbitration.
