Essex County Power Wash & Painting FAQs

Q: Do I need a professional technician to power wash my deck, home, sidewalk, fence, or driveway?

A: Technically, no. You could rent a power washer from a hardware store, research the details of how to power wash the surface you need to clean, get all the appropriate tips and equipment, set up the power washer, complete the work, and return everything to the store. By why would you, when you can simply hire an experience professional like Essex County Power Wash?

Q: Is power washing environmentally friendly?

A: Yes, and in many cases, it is more environmentally friendly than the alternative cleaning methods. Often, technicians use nothing but water to clean, meaning that there is no harmful runoff or damaging chemicals leeching into the ground. If we determine that a cleanser of some kind is necessary, we choose cleaners that are biodegradable and safe for plants, animals, and humans.

Q: How often should I power wash my home?

A: It depends on the area, the local seasons, and the pollutants close to your specific home, but in general, we recommend power washing in Essex County once a year. Many homeowners like to power wash all elements of their home at once, often in late summer. Since summers in New Jersey are so humid, they increase the odds of mold and mildew forming in various places. Power washing helps remove these fungal invaders, keeping the home cleaner and healthier.

Q: How expensive is power washing?

A: The exact cost, of course, depends on what we will be cleaning, how dirty it is right now, and how long we expect it to take to complete the work. If you are interested in learning more about how power washing can benefit your Essex County home, contact us for a free estimate.

Q: Will you complete the job in a timely manner without interruption?

A: Yes. We schedule each job to be completed in consecutive days (M-F.)

Q: How long will it take to paint my house?

A: The process can take as little as 4-5 days from the time we connect with you. However, the actual timing will depend on the condition of your paint surfaces, the type of work required, our schedule and weather conditions if the project involves exterior work.

During our consultation with you, we can evaluate your situation and let you know how long we think it will take to complete your painting project.

Q: How will my personal items be protected from paint?

A: On interiors, after you have removed your delicate items, all areas or remaining items, will be covered with clean drop cloths or plastic sheeting. On exteriors, shrubs and surrounding areas will be protected so that no evidence of paint splatter or paint peelings remains.

Q: Do I need to remove everything from a room before you paint?

A: Please move all small items and breakables. Unless agreed otherwise, we will move and protect all of the furniture and fixtures.

Q: What if it rains while you’re painting my house?

A: We keep a close eye on the weather and weather forecasts. If it start raining while we are in the middle of a painting job, we simply stop and return after it drys up.
