At first glance, it might seem like power washing is an easy job you can do yourself – and in some cases, it can be. If you need to clean some dirt off your patio or prepare outdoor lawn furniture for refinishing, you can likely handle power washing yourself.
However, if you need to handle tougher jobs, bigger jobs or you simply aren’t comfortable handling power washing on your own (yes, this technique can damage surfaces!), then give Texas Elite Restoration a call. We provide professional power washing services for homes and businesses using top-of-the-line equipment and safe techniques.

What is Power Washing? How Does it Differ from Pressure Washing?
Both power washing and pressure washing use highly pressurized water to remove dirt and other contaminants from hard surfaces. While the processes are similar, there are a few key differences.
Most notably, a power washer uses high-pressure steam of hot water to blast away dirt. This makes it the preferred choice for removing salt, mildew and mold from outdoor patios, decks and driveways. Power washing is also effective at removing grease stains on driveways and garages and controlling weeds and moss.
Pressure washing, on the other hand, uses the same high pressurized water but without the heat. Therefore, it doesn’t perform as well on mold, moss or other stuck-on materials. If you only need to do a few tasks around the house, such as cleaning a small patio, you can probably get by with pressure washing. But for larger jobs, more stubborn materials or delicate hard surfaces, it’s best to call in the professionals.
Avoiding Power Washing Damage - Why it Pays to Hire a Professional
Even though power washing is common, it can damage your surfaces, which is why many people choose to hire a professional. The last thing you want is for a simple job to turn into a major headache!
Here are some of the ways that power washing can cause damage:
- Water can accumulate under your home’s siding, causing mold and mildew growth
- Shingles, siding, shutters, etc. can be accidentally damaged
- Paint or discoloration can occur on hard surfaces
- Splintering or cracking can happen on wood or stone surfaces
When you hire Texas Elite Restoration, you can count on our team to do a thorough job while also keeping your surfaces safe. Our highly trained technicians know the ideal pressure, distance and technique to use. Typically, the higher the pressure, the greater the risk for damage. Certain materials, like concrete, can handle a lot of pressure. Other materials require specialized attention.
