Questions to Ask a Company You’re Considering for Professional Cleaning Services

Getting professional pressure- or soft-wash services done means choosing a company you can trust to do excellent work. Ultimately, it can be difficult to find which company is exactly right for your needs (especially since everyone puts their best foot forward online). The best way to tell is by knowing what questions to ask the companies you get in touch with; their answers will tell you everything you need to know about their business practices, thoroughness, and ability to get the job done. Let’s go over some of the most important questions to ask a professional softwash company you’re considering.

1. What are the training requirements for your team?

When it comes to choosing a professional softwash company, safety is one of the biggest priorities to keep in mind. A company with excellent training standards for its team will make sure that every person on-site takes the right precautions in order to keep the property they’re working on, those around them, and themselves safe. Pressure washing can be dangerous, and it’s critical that the professional you’re trusting to do it has all of the right safety precautions in order.

2. What cleaning processes and products do you use?

High-pressure washing is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and it’s critical to work with a company that understands this and is ready to apply this understanding to your home. In many cases, a softwash is far more effective at safely cleaning a residential area than a pressure wash. High pressure can cause damage to your walls and structures around your home; it’s up to your professional softwash company to know when to use it – and, more importantly, when not to.

3. May I see before and after photos of other projects you’ve done?

“A picture speaks a thousand words” is one of the oldest sayings in the book for a reason. It’s easy for a pressure washing company to advertise its high standards and excellent work; it’s another thing entirely to let their work speak for itself. Ideally, before and after pictures aren’t something you should have to ask for at all: they should be displayed and easily accessible on a company’s website, ready for you to peruse during your first visit. However, if that is not the case, be sure to ask for some photos. With something as important as pressure washing, make sure you never go in blind.

4. Can I get a free quote on my softwash?

Transparency is key to any successful business transaction, and that should start with your very first phone call. A professional softwash company should have no problem at all giving you a free quote on services, no strings attached. If a company gives you vague answers about pricing or tries to upsell you on services before giving you your quote, take your business somewhere else.
