Pressure Washing Questions
What’s the difference between pressure and power washing?
There is really no difference between the two terms. Either phrase can be substituted for our service. Don’t be concerned about the term “power” or “pressure. Window Genie technicians are trained to use the proper pressure to clean each surface.
Why should I choose a professional to pressure wash my home?
Pressure washing can quickly become a science project without proper experience. The surface, cleaning product, pressure and type of pressure washer you’re using all play a vital role in how clean your surface will get. More importantly, for how long they will stay clean too. With over 20 years experience, Window Genie understands what it takes to clean even the most difficult surfaces. From stucco, to concrete, pool decks and paver stones, we have the products, equipment and insurance to guarantee you a clean surface, every time.
Are the chemicals Window Genie uses safe?
All Window Genie products are VOC compliant and we make a strong effort to ensure the use of only “green” products. The surface you need cleaned will determine what chemical will be used. How dirty your surface is will determine how much chemical will be used. Our power washers allow for variable pressures to keep minimal pressure on a particular surface. Cleaning vinyl siding with our soft washing technique uses a mixture of eco-friendly chemicals and very low pressure. For some concrete cleaning jobs, we do not need any chemicals. Just good ole fashioned water pressure and a flat surface cleaner designed specifically for concrete cleaning.

Will high pressure damage my home?
Yes, high pressure can wreak havoc on your home’s surfaces. Without proper training, you can peel the stucco off a home, etch concrete or patio surfaces causing permanent damage or injury can be caused if high pressure touches skin or clothing. Our fully insured and skilled technicians will deliver the perfect care to your home. Window Genie uses only safe and tested methods for pressure washing.
Why should I pressure wash/clean my concrete?
Concrete cleaning is as much protection as it is aesthetic. Pressure washing concrete removes built up dirt and grim. Pressure washing and cleaning concrete can also help prevent a slippery surface. Concrete can become a breeding ground for mildew. This is especially important around swimming pools, fountains, and ponds.
Why should I seal my concrete?
Concrete and pavement should be a lifetime investment. Having Window Genie seal your concrete or driveway is a great way to insure your investment. We use ChemTec ONE to seal all concrete and Seal’n Lock sealer on pavers. Both are state of the art and VOC compliant in all 50 states. Sealing concrete is the only sure fire way to prevent cracking and deterioration.
