Pressure washing your home is a great way to rejuvenate its look and feel, and it’s even better when you choose a professional service. However, before our professionals from My Guy Services arrive, it’s critical to prepare your house for the pressure washing service. 

Here are the set of steps to follow so your home is ready to be pressure washed:

1. Check That All Windows and Doors Are Tightly Shut and Locked

Triple-check that all your windows and doors are closed and locked before we arrive. You want to prevent water from getting into the house.

2. Ensure Children and Pets Are Inside

Ensuring your pets and children are inside saves them from unexpectedly getting wet and keeps everyone safe.

3. Locate Your External Water Source

To pressure wash your home, our professionals will need access to a functional exterior water source to get the job done. If you know where your water source is ahead of time, you can direct them to it when they arrive, and they can start working right away.

4. Remove Any Furniture, Decorations and Potted Plants

Please remove everything near the surfaces that will get cleaned. Pressure washing is intense, so to prevent any unnecessary damage from happening, you can take a few simple precautions before the service starts. If you need assistance moving things or would prefer to have us handle it, let us know when you book your appointment. We’ll also water the plants in your garden beds before we begin power washing, during the process and after we’re finished to help keep plants protected from the soft washing chemicals.

5. Move Your Vehicles out of the Driveway

If possible, move your vehicles out of the driveway so that our professionals have more space to move freely and be more efficient.

6. Unplug Outside Extension Cords and Close the Outlet Covers

It’s a known fact that water and electricity don’t mix. So unplugging your extension cords and covering the outlets ensures no one accidentally gets electrocuted. Removing the cords also saves our cleaners from potentially tripping as they are moving around.
