Considering hiring a professional to handle your pressure washing? Be sure to ask your pressure washing provider these questions before you book their services, so that you know exactly what to expect.
1. What are your rates?
Ask your provider to give you an exact quote for the project you would like them to tackle. (Better yet, get several quotes from several different providers, so that you can compare pressure washing prices!) It’s important to understand how much your pressure washing provider is going to charge you so that there are no surprises when they hand you the bill.
2. What kind of training and experience do you have?
Before you hire a pressure washing provider, be sure to ask them what training they’ve received and how much experience they have. If someone is going to be deep cleaning the exteriors of your home with heavy-duty pressure washing equipment, you want to be sure they know what they’re doing and have some experience under their belt before you trust them with the job.
3. Can you provide me with some references?
When you’re trying to determine whether or not you should give a pressure washing professional your business, it’s important to ask them to prove their value. When a pressure washing provider is willing to provide you with references, it shows they proud of their work and that others can vouch for them. If they don’t have any or don’t want to show you customer feedback, steer clear!
4. Do you have insurance?
Regardless of how well you vet your provider, pressure washing comes with risks. So, for the sake of your (and their) peace of mind, make sure the business you hire to do your pressure washing has their own insurance. Don’t try to save money by hiring someone who has lower rates but doesn’t have insurance. It’s not worth the risk.
