Siding Cleaning Company: Hiring and What You Need To Know
A siding cleaning company is someone who will come and do the work for you, which can be quite time-consuming to do on your own. Here’s what you need to know before hiring a siding cleaning company:
Determine how often you want to have the siding cleaned.
The frequency of having your siding cleaned will depend on how much time you want to expend doing it yourself, as well as how quickly dirt and mildew tend to build upon your siding. If your siding is exposed to a lot of trees or plants, such as an outdoor staircase nook, then plan to hire someone every six months; if not, then every sixteen months would be sufficient.
2. Look for Referrals
Get referrals from family or friends who’ve had their siding cleaned before and were satisfied with the person they hired. Ask them what method was used (steam cleaning vs pressure washing) and whether it took less than an hour for them to complete.
Look into the chemicals that will be used on your siding.
If these are environmentally friendly, then this is a good sign; if they’re not nor do they claim to be, this should be of concern to you. Ask how often they clean with these methods and why they’ve chosen them over any others – there may be different opinions depending on what type of cleaning method was used.
Years of Operation.
Take note of how many years in business the company has been in operation for as well as whether or not it’s trustworthy based on reviews from past customers by doing an internet search for “company name” + “reviews.”
Understand any contract
Understand all costs involved before signing any contracts handing over cash, check, or credit card information. This includes the hourly rate of work, whether there’s an additional fee if you need them to come on weekends, and if they offer discounts for seniors or memberships with local home improvement stores.
Ask all your questions upfront so that there are no unpleasant surprises when the siding is cleaned.
If you don’t feel satisfied with their answers, consider hiring another company to do the job instead!
Understand the length of time before you’ll see results from having siding cleaned.
It can take a week to see results since dirt and mildew start the process of decaying and will only get worse over time (that is, until they’re removed).
Get an estimate for how much it will cost beforehand.
You’ll need know what to expect at the end of the job. Ask whether tips are welcome as well as which method they recommend if you decide not to hire them as your siding cleaner at the end of your consultation – many companies offer both steam cleaning and pressure washing methods but won’t be able to tell you which one works best without seeing your property first. Make sure you weigh out all the pros and cons before hiring any cleaning company!
Hire a siding cleaning company by following these steps and you’ll get your home looking like new again in no time!
