Grand Rapids, MI Pressure Washing


Pressure washing is one of the most valuable, yet easily overlooked, ways that you can care for your Grand Rapids home. Does it keep your surfaces fresh and clean? Absolutely, but the benefits go a lot deeper than that. Professional pressure washing removes dirt, grime, and contaminants that actually shorten the lifespan of your paint and stain, plus provides an ideal opportunity to look over all your surfaces on an annual basis.

This helps your coatings to last longer while letting you catch any potential issues early.

Benefits of Pressure Washing

Let’s unpack those benefits even more:

  • Improving curb appeal. We all want a clean and well-maintained property, right? Pressure washing can instantly enhance the appearance of your home or commercial building.
  • Cleaning dirty surfaces. Over time, dirt, mold, and mildew accumulate on your siding, patio, deck, and walkway, making them look dull and uninviting. Pressure washing efficiently removes these contaminants.
  • Preventing damage. As we touched on above, regular pressure washing can help prevent the growth of mold and mildew that inevitably cause damage.
  • Protecting against injury. There’s nothing worse than a slick concrete patio, or a grimy pool deck. Keep your property clean and safe with routine pressure washing.
  • Getting rid of graffiti. Commercial property owners, you know how much of a battle graffiti can be. Pressure washing is an effective way to wipe the slate clean.


      Understanding The Pressure Washing Process

      As valuable and effective as pressure washing can be, it has to be done right. Otherwise you run the risk of damaging surfaces, causing water intrusion, or seriously injuring yourself. As a side note, this is why we also recommend that you hire a professional power washing company rather than tackle the project yourself.

      At New Look Painting, our pressure washing process is dialed in, and we consider it a necessary part of preparing for exterior painting. We start by determining the exact pressure needed to effectively clean each surface, using specific tips and extra care to ensure the best results.

            We hired New Look Painting to take care of our our living room and dining room ceilings and walls. We could not be happier or more pleased with the level of professionalism and skill of Mike, our painter, that was assigned to the job. He tackled a big job in 4 days and I would not hesitate to hire him again for jobs around our house or our friends and family. He even worked around our family schedule. A++++
