Soft Washing vs Pressure Washing, what is the difference?

Driveway pressure washing

Soft washing is a three step house washing technique that uses high GPM (gallons per minute) but with very low water pressure, usually only around  1,200 PSI. This is a gentle, stucco safe, and effective way to clean a stucco homes in Las Vegas. The expert technicians at Summerlin Property Services will first rinse your home to remove the heavy dirt and debris then we apply an earth friendly soap/enzyme and allow that to dwell for about 15 minutes. The enzymes will loosen up the more stubborn, problem areas and then we perform a final rinse and the end result is a home that looks years younger! Performing a soft house wash can often brighten up your home so much that you will no longer feel the need for a paint job. If you receive a HOA letter stating that your home needs to be painted, please call us first 702-965-2065 and see if a soft house wash is right for you.

On the other hand, we have pressure washing sometimes also referred to as power washing. This technique uses a very strong stream of water pressure (usually around 4,000 PSI) to muscle and force the dirt and debris off the area being cleaned. Pressure washing is a fine and very effective way to clean concrete, pavers and other surface/ground areas but it can be dangerous if used on a stucco home. If you have any previous problem areas like divots, cracking or peeling of the stucco then a high pressure wash can exasperate those previous issues and make chunks of your home come flying off. Please give the experts and Summerlin Property Services a call and we can discuss the specific details of your project and come up with a plan that best suites your needs.

Great Questions to Ask When Choosing a Window Cleaning Service

Window Cleaning Service

One of the reasons that Summerlin Property Services opened for business when we first began our journey was due to an extremely poor customer service experience when the owner tried to have the windows on his personal home cleaned. He called numerous Las Vegas window cleaning services and had trouble getting anyone to pick up the phone or return a voice mail message.  One company didn’t even show up after an appointment had been scheduled! Choosing the right professional property and window cleaning service will make all the difference in consistently clean windows handled in a courteous, prompt manner or an awful streaky mess and unprofessional, unlicensed or under insured service providers that don’t even show up.

Here are some questions you can ask that will help ensure you are choosing a high quality property cleaning service like Summerlin  Property Services.

#1:  Are you licensed and insured?

Protect yourself from the risk of lawsuits by asking about a business license and insurance. General liability insurance alone is not enough. Make certain that they also have a workman comp insurance policy. Save yourself from a potentially really big headache and do not hire a business that doesn’t have the proper insurance policies.

2: Do you have a satisfaction guarantee?

Professional window washing services should stand behind their work. Make sure you understand their policy.  What is your recourse if you are not satisfied?  Do you get a refund or will they re-wash the glass that doesn’t meet your standards? Having clarification on this will ensure you understand what can be expected if the situation ever arises. At Summerlin Property Services when your service is complete our crew leader will always offer to walk the property with you to make sure we did a great job AND we also give a 3-day guarantee.

#3: Will you give me a free estimate?

A well-established window cleaning company will agree to assess your job and give you an estimate, at no charge often right over the telephone on the first call.

#4: How long have you been in business?

It has been estimated that at least 50% of business fail in their first 3 years, however,  a company that has managed to stay in business for longer is probably doing something right.  They are likely reliable and provide quality work.

#5: Can you give me customer references?

A business that provides great customer service should have a slew of happy customers.  You should easily find a large number of reviews online at Google, Yelp, Facebook, etc. If not, that’s definitely a red flag and you should ask them to give you some references.

#6: Do you perform a background checks on your employees?

It’s important that a property service cleaning company performs background checks on their employees.  Background checks give you confidence that employees can be trusted.

Clean, pristine washed windows are key components of a well-maintained home or business.  Always ask these questions up front.  This information will assist you in reaching  an informed decision and avoiding a sub-par service provider.
