Katy Pressure Washing Services
Pressure washing and power washing are relatively easy to explain. They are basically one in the same, just pronounced differently by different people. They both have the same meaning. As a general term used for cleaning an exterior object with water, the term is used in a broad range. There are many different ways to pressure wash an object, and these different ways are what separate the fly by night companies, and the true professionals. Most surfaces need to be soft washed, rather than pressure washed, and this is why most amateurs damage property on a regular basis. Soft Washing is cleaning an object using less than 1,000 psi.
A fly by night company will have your average pressure washer, bought from a department store that has only one power setting. Unfortunately, that power setting is on high, which will damage most surfaces. A professional pressure washing company like Katy Pressure Washing, has the ability to soft wash surfaces to prevent damage from occurring.
Oil Stain Removal
Oil stains can be quite difficult to remove. “Can you remove these oil stains from my concrete?” Yes, and maybe no. Oil stains are plain and simple tough. It depends on many factors if oil can be removed with basic concrete cleaning. The most important factor is how long the oil has been on the concrete. Also, was anything put on the stain already?
Long term oil stains are almost impossible to remove completely, since they have had time to set in the pores and dry. Long term oil stains can be removed enough to were only a shadow of the oil stain is visible in most cases. Another question is what type of oil is it? Some oils are capable of being removed easier than others. And finally, how porous is the concrete? With all these factors going into the removal of an oil stain, it is hard to be able to tell someone that concrete cleaning can remove the oil stain completely. We always recommend performing a full driveway cleaning when removing an oil stain, instead of just cleaning the oil stain alone.
Rust Stain Removal
We take a number of factors into account when addressing a rust removal job: What is the rust stain caused by? How porous is the concrete that the stain is located in? We take time to evaluate each project so that we can determine the most ideal treatment is needed for your rust stain removal.
Fertilizer Rust Removal
Granules left on concrete from fertilizing the yard, or leaking from a potted plant can be one of the hardest rust stains to remove. There are chemicals to remove these stains completely, but these treatments are pricey and often times use harsh chemicals that are bad for the environment.
Pressure washing is a better and more cost-effective solution.
Hot Water Pressure Washing
Hot water pressure washing is something that we at Katy Pressure Washing provide as a service. Hot water pressure washing cleans most surfaces better, and at a faster rate. Hot water is a must when cleaning oil stains, and performing paint removal. We use hot water pressure washing to remove gum from concrete as well.
If a company does not offer hot water pressure washing, then you should probably call a better company.
