Common Pressure Washing Questions & Answers

What makes your company different from other pressure washing or paver sealing companies?

Two words: Integrity and Education.

You can trust the team at Premier Pro Wash & Seal to be dependable, competent, and well-trained to handle your job.

Are you insured?

Yes, we carry up-to-date General Insurance and Workman’s Compensation Insurance and provide proof of insurance and workman’s comp for every estimate.


A large majority of pressure and paver sealing companies do not carry proper insurance or falsely claim that they are exempt. This puts you in jeopardy!

If a contractor without Workers’ Comp Insurance gets hurt on your property, they can sue your homeowners insurance and win! For your safety, we strongly encourage you to ask your contractor for proof of proper coverage.

What does a driveway cleaning include?

  • Driveway

Corner lots will be charged an extra $30-50 depending on their size.

  • Oil

We will remove these types of stains for an additional charge. They require a completely different way of cleaning and a unique set of products.

What does a house wash include?

Our Standard House Wash includes cleaning and removing all dirt, mold, algae, mildew, and pollen from your fascia down to the ground.

As a courtesy service, we also remove:

  • Dirt daubers
  • Wasp nest
  • Spider webs

What is NOT included in a house wash?

Our Standard House Wash does not include the roof and inside/out of a lanai screen.

We can wash your lanai screen for an additional charge, but do not offer roof cleaning services at the moment.

What does a lanai cleaning include?

Our Standard Lanai Cleaning includes cleaning and removing all dirt, mold, algae, and pollen from the:

  • Deck of the lanai
  • Walls of the home within the lanai
  • Screens inside and out
  • Frames inside and out

What is NOT included in a lanai cleaning?

Any specialty stain concerns are not included in our standard service and need to be addressed before cleaning. Such stains include:

  • Barbeque grill grease
  • Rust
  • Spills

Does your technique damage the paint or screens?

No! We prefer to wash homes, screens, and any other sensitive areas with our soft wash system. This method provides a deep, thorough clean and allows chemistry to do the work.

A soft wash approach is safer and much more effective and efficient.

Do you move the furniture?

For liability reasons, we prefer homeowners to move furniture themselves if possible, but if you are unable to move your own furniture we can do it for you for an extra charge.

For Standard Pressure Wash Cleanings, we only ask that sensitive furniture be moved prior to our arrival. These include:

  • Rugs
  • Cushions
  • Mats
  • Plants
  • Remote controls

We will move the remaining furniture around and clean as we go.

Do I need to be home during the time of cleaning?

No, it is very common for homeowners to be away from home during our scheduled cleanings. As long as we have access to the area needing to be cleaned and the water is turned on at the property, homeowners do not need to be present.

How do I pay?

We accept cash, credit cards, debit cards, and checks.

How often should I have areas cleaned and washed?

We recommend every 6-18 months, depending on your location, tree coverage, and nearby water sources.

I own a pressure washer but when I clean the mold and algae comes right back. What do you do differently?

When washing with just water and pressure alone, you are not killing the root of the problem. Premier Pro Wash & Seal uses a proprietary mix specifically made to clean and kill the spore of the bacteria and fungi growing on your surfaces. Our method of cleaning provides a deeper clean that lasts much longer.

Why does my house, driveway, fence, or lanai get dirty quicker than my neighbors?

This answer strongly varies depending on location. The rain and humidity alone is going to cause funk, but if your property has a ton of shade, is backed up to a pond or some type of water source, and provides a ton of moisture then mold is going to return more rapidly. A property that is in a drier environment with no shade and no water source nearby will not.

Will this kill our plants and other nearby landscaping?

Premier Pro Wash & Seal will do everything within our power to limit any harm to plants and grass. One of the best things to do is soak the roots of the plants BEFORE, during, and after treatment.

When plants drink the chemicals first, it sends them into shock, but if we fill their roots with water first, the chance of harming landscaping is very minimal. The very rare times we have had plants initially harmed by one of our cleanings, the plants revived quickly after we do two fertilizer and water treatments

You cleaned and scrubbed off the dirt daubers, but there is still a stain where it was. Why?

This is due to the acidity in a dirt dauber’s mouth while building the nest. If the nest has been there for a long period of time, a shadow of the nest will be left behind.

For best results it is encouraged to remove the dirt daubers nest as quickly as possible and not allow the stain to set in the paint.

After cleaning my house, there are streaks along my fascia. What is that?

We call those streaks tiger stripes and they are caused by paint oxidation. The aluminum bleeds through the paint over time causing these stripes. They are more noticeable after a thorough cleaning removes the dirt and mold that was previously covering them up.

Oxidation is very normal in Florida due to our constant sun and rain. Repainting is recommended

Why are rust streaks running down my lanai frames?

Screws used to bolt down the frames have rusted over time because of the constant battering of Florida rain and humidity. After a rain or cleaning, sometimes these streaks become more noticeable.

Some areas are worse than others with the mold, algae, and mildew, why?

The North side will always be worse than other areas because the North side is shaded for the majority of the day. Mold loves moisture and shade!

Do you clean windows?

During a house wash, we spray and clean the windows with our detergents which is very effective at removing any dirt, pollen, algae, or mold on the windows and frames. This gets the outside windows very clean.

However, this is not the same clean as a true window cleaning business that uses specialized water-fed poles that leave no streaks.

Do you clean the inside of gutters?

Unfortunately, we do not. We clean the outside of gutters, but do not manually clean the inside of gutters

Do you clean oil or transmission spills?

Yes! We have a minimum charge of $250 for these types of stains regardless of size.

To remove oil and transmission spills, we need to use special degreasers and chemicals. However, we do not guarantee complete removal of oil or transmission spills. Concrete and pavers are extremely porous and these spills tend to become embedded in the substrate.

We can remove 50-70% of the stain (up to 100%) but we never guarantee these results.

There are no products available that can guarantee 100% oil removal despite the claims on social media threads. For the best results, it is critical to remove such stains within a few days. The longer it sets in, the less chance of full removal.
