Frequently Asked Pressure Washing Questions - Answered By Powell's Pressure Washing

Do You Work With Commercial Clients?

Yes! You can count on Powell's Pressure Washing for all your commercial pressure washing needs. We can pressure wash your commercial building's exterior from parking lots to storefronts and playgrounds to loading docks.

How Often Should I Get My House Washed?

The answer to this question depends on several factors. The climate, area you live in, recent weather conditions, and the number of trees surrounding your property all play a part in how often you need house washing services.

Most experts agree that you should invest in house washing services at least once every two years. However, the factors stated previously could warrant more frequent cleanings. Seasons of particularly harsh weather, moist climates, and lots of trees that shed dead leaves and other debris may mean you need pressure washing more often.

It's best to just keep an eye on the state of your exteriors to best determine when professional cleaning is necessary. If you're still unsure, Powell's Pressure Washing offers free estimates and can assess your property's needs for you.

Is That Black Stuff On My Roof Really Not Dirt?

As a leading choice for pressure washing in Louisville, we get asked this a lot, and it's essential to know. Many homeowners don't realize the black streaks on their roofs aren't caused by dirt but by a form of blue-green algae called Gloeocapsa magma. It feeds off of the limestone found on asphalt shingles and worsens over time. While the algae may not damage your shingles, it tarnishes your roof's appearance, and the blackening causes your roof to heat up, which increases your cooling bills. Routine maintenance, including roof cleaning, is vital to prevent this.
