Heavy Rainfall in Sugar Land , TX

This will almost certainly go down as the great flood of 2016.  The water rose so fast that is swallowed vehicles whole and tossed them about like toys going down a bathtub drain.  It looks like loss of life is minimal but the damage to property is extensive – especially in Katy and Cypress.  This is a reminder of how life can change quickly without your control.  Could you have bought a house somewhere else?  Sure.  Could you have stayed up late and moved all your belongings up off the ground?  Maybe.  Would your boss have understood if you didn’t come into work if it turned out not to be so bad?  Probably.  Here, we hope everyone remained safe and sound and we wish all the best.

Thee will be thousands of families just hoping to put the shattered pieces of their lives back together over the next few weeks so lets all offer a prayer for those impacted by this event, and by those impacted by the bad job market in the oil industry, and all others in need.  Pressure washing is such a small thing – as are so many others, when compared to shelter, safety, drinking water,  dry clothing and stability for our children – hopefully this even will put things into perspective for everyone.

Tips And Tricke For Pressure Washing

You may have many things to clean and sometimes warm soapy water and sponges or cleaning rags just can’t get the job done. When this happens, it’s time to bring out the heavy equipment, but it can sometimes be a little tricky. Here are some helpful pressure washing tips and tricks to make the job a little easier. If you take these tips into consideration and follow common sense safety guidelines you may just surprise yourself!

For best results, pre-soak the area to clean. You can apply a detergent or degreaser. Let is set for a few minutes before you use the power washer.  This will losen up the dirt and grime brfore you hit it with the pressure.

Do not wash all surfaces in the same manner. Some are more sensitive than others. For example, when cleaning siding or brick keep the nozzle back from the surface. Otherwise you might remove more than just dirt and grime.

When you wash your deck or fence, wait until the rest of the house is clean. Much of the dirt from the house may end up on these surfaces, so if you save them until last, you’ll have less work to do.

When using your power cleaner for the first time on a surface, clean a test area first. Make it as small as possible. This might save you a lot of problems.

Use the right nozzle for the job. If your unit has more than one nozzle, make sure to choose the one with the right pressure rating. This will help you keep from damaging some of your property.

When you have plants close to your home foundation, cover them before you start power cleaning. You can use tarps or sheets of plastic. This will help to protect them from damage.

If you are not sure how to power wash, you may wish to hire professionals. You won’t have to worry about damaging any of your things and you can rest and take it easy. It may not cost as much as you think to hire a good powering washing company.
