Are Your Cleaners Safe for Plants, Animals, and Children?
The chemicals we use in most cases are similar to those you use in your home. Our house washing detergent is no stronger than Tide or Cascade. We add sodium hypochlorite to the detergent which is nothing more than household bleach, just stronger. The wax we use is very similar to the wax you get in the automatic car washes. All of our chemicals come from a power washing supply house in Georgia and are FDA approved, environmentally friendly and safe around people and pets. Typically, these cleaners will not harm otherwise healthy plants. However, in hot, dry months (usually late summer), some leaf discoloration or other minor effects may occur. We take special care to rinse your gardens and anything else of value around your home before, during and after the wash process to minimize any detrimental effects.
Can I Do It Myself? Will You Sell Me Your Cleaners?
Whatever we can do you can do, but rest assured that we can do it more efficiently and safer than you, because this is our profession and we possess the equipment, experience, and knowledge necessary to perform almost any power washing service. If you decide to tackle power washing for yourself, the possibility does exist to do serious damage to your property or yourself. Water can spray at such a high pressure that you can literally put holes in siding, gouge the wood of your deck or fence, dent and remove paint from gutters, and even break windows. And lastly, when you add up what it costs to do it yourself, it's likely not much less than what we charge. Why not call us first? You may be surprised by how affordable a professional job can be.
We do not sell our cleaners to the public, because we do not want the liability involved in doing so. The cleaners we use, as well as any other power washing company, are readily available through local and online distributors and dealers.
What Is Your Service Area?
We are based and operate out of Springfield, MO and service a radius up to 100 miles. We do charge a travel fee to any area outside of the Springfield metro area (Fair Grove, Nixa, Ozark, Republic, Rogersville, Strafford, and Willard).
Do You Prep Houses To Be Painted?
Paint preparation is a great reason to have your house washed. The last thing you want to do is paint over a dirty surface or one with a lot of loose material. We can power wash painted surfaces to remove mold, mildew, and surface dirt as well as knock off a majority of chipped and peeling paint. Please note that hand scraping may still be necessary.
Do You Wash Windows?
Yes, we offer window washing as an add-on option to any one of our house washing services. One of the hardest things to do in power washing is keeping the water from evaporating on hot windows, leaving the detergent to streak the glass, but it's also one of the biggest customer concerns. So even if you do not choose a window cleaning treatment, we really focus on leaving your windows as clean as possible when we're done. Furthermore, if you choose our deluxe service then our protective finish leaves your windows virtually spot-free without using a specific glass cleaner.
Do You Offer a Guarantee?
The only guarantee we make is that at some point in time your project will need to be washed again. Because our line of work is weather and environment related it is extremely difficult to give a guarantee of how long your property will stay clean. Some elements that contribute to a dirty house over which we have no control include contaminants in the air, dust and pollen kicked up from lawn mowing, neighborhood construction and road work, high humidity, insects (such as spiders), UV rays from the sun, and the list goes on. Remember, we thoroughly clean the surface and kill and remove all surface deterioration, but we don’t eliminate the causes – the weather and environment.
After My Deck/Fence Is Cleaned Do I Need to Stain It?
If you want your deck or fence to look good for years to come, then staining is a required necessity. The UV rays emitted from the sun are the cause for the majority of damage and deterioration of exterior wood surfaces. Without a UV-blocking protective coating your deck will continue to deteriorate and will turn gray within a matter of weeks.
Do You Stain Decks, Fences, and Cedar Siding?
Yes! H2Pro will gladly stain your exterior wood and we offer a variety of colors, tones, and products. We use only superior, professional products and will protect your property from drifting stain, overspray, and drips. Or, if you prefer, you may hire your own staining contractor or do it yourself.
