Although the two practices are similar, there is one major difference between power and pressure washing: heat. During power washing, the water used is hot and during pressure washing, it is cold. Power washing is best used for removing tough, stuck-on substances like gum, mold, and bird droppings.
Our Clearwater pressure washing team uses a protocol to clean rooftops effectively, starting with removing debris like twigs, nests, and leaves. We'll then pressure wash the roof and remove stains, dirt, and mold growth. Because the gutters are an essential part of the roof, they're cleaned too. Should any roof damages be discovered, we'll let the property owner know so a repair plan can be put into place.
There are many reasons why pressure washing your home or business property is a great idea. For one, you'll instantly increase the curb appeal of your home, which could lead to boosting its value.

Our pressure-washing professionals recommend that roof cleaning services be rendered during the summer months.

Because we live in the great country of the USA, otherwise known as "The Free World," you are welcome to do as you please, including cleaning your own roof.

We recommend leaving roof cleaning to the professionals.
Having the right equipment is essential for appropriate pressure washing. You must first assess the surface that needs to be cleaned and determine whether pressure, power, or soft washing is the necessary method. The best way to ensure pressure washing is completed the right way is by hiring an experienced company.
ProClean offers the renowned soft wash technique as an option for customers with fragile or weakened surfaces like aluminum siding, shingles, and cracked concrete. Unlike pressure and power washing, the soft wash method incorporates low-pressure water that is very hot. The stained surfaces are coated in a heavy-duty detergent and then rinsed away with gentle water pressure.
According to Angi, the average cost of pressure washing a house is $0.10 to $0.50 per square foot. For the average size home, that means the final price is typically between $100 to $650.

Residential pressure washers are between1,300-2000 PSI, commercial pressure washers fall somewhere between 3,200-8,000 PSI. There is typically more surface area for workers to cover on a commercial job as well.
