Power Washing in Austin, TX

Over time, a layer of unsightly mildew, dust, dirt and pollen builds up on our home’s exterior, as well as our driveways, patios, decks, fencing and walkways. While using a power washer can be an easy and inexpensive way to enhance your curb appeal, many homeowners don’t have the equipment or time to do the job. When it comes to power washing, Austin homeowners trust the pros at ABC Home & Commercial Services to showcase a home’s best features.

Some homeowners choose to power wash their own home. In most cases, the power washers they rent from home improvement stores are designed for residential purposes. ABC’s power washing customers benefit from the use of commercially-designed power washers, which are more powerful to remove mildew and other stubborn debris. These devices also offer more functionality, such as the ability to use both hot and cold water to address different types and degrees of build-up and stains.

The most gratifying thing about having your property power washed is the difference it makes! Take a look at these before and after photos to see the results you can experience in using professional equipment.

One benefit of our warm climate here in Austin is that you can benefit from power washing any time of year.

ABC can perform power washing during the rain, as long as lightning isn’t present, so that we can keep our employees out of harm’s way.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer free estimates?

Yes! When you contact ABC for power washing services, we will send an inspector to your home to find out more about what exactly you’d like to have done. Then, ABC will send you a free, no-obligation quote. Once you approve the estimate, we can schedule a convenient time for you to have the power washing done.

How often should I have my house power washed?

Here in Austin, homeowners generally benefit from power washing once every two years. The interval between power washing appointments can vary, depending on a number of factors. Our oak trees deposit a significant amount of pollen and leaves each spring, so if you have a dense tree canopy on your property, discoloration may occur more quickly on your surfaces.

Nearby construction, winds and severe weather can also cause more discoloration, which can show up on your pathways and concrete surfaces. Homes with lighter exteriors can benefit from an annual power washing service to remove mildew and other residue.

Will power washing damage my siding, wood or plants?

When the ABC inspector visits your home to gather the information needed for an estimate, he or she will assess the condition of your home’s exterior and make notes about any areas that might be vulnerable to problems associated with high pressure. Our technicians have experience working with any type of surface, including siding, brick, vinyl, wood, concrete, stone and aluminum will vary the technique and products used based on material and the level of grime and dirt.

In addition, homeowners can point out any areas that might require special attention or care. ABC’s power washing technicians will perform the service carefully to minimize any impact on your landscaping and grounds.

Are the products that ABC uses for power washing environmentally-friendly?

All of the products ABC technicians will use on your property are designed for residential purposes. Decades of experience working here in Austin has enabled us to select only products which balance effectiveness with a concern for the well-being of your family, pets and the environment. We are happy to address any concerns homeowners might have about the power washing products we use.

Do I need to be at home while my home is being power washed?

In most cases, our power washing technicians can perform power washing while you are away at work. We just ask that you provide us with instructions on how to access your yard, if needed, and to keep pets indoors. We also recommend that homeowners double check doors and windows so that they are tightly sealed and don’t allow any moisture indoors.

Will power washing help remove oil stains on my driveway or in my garage?

We recommend that homeowners attempt to clean these types of stains on their own, using soapy water and a firm bristle brush.This method is generally more effective than having a surface power washed, although some stains may respond to the combination of high pressure and heat.

“One of ABC's electricians, Joshua, did a fantastic job installing shop lighting (inside/outside), a few panels, and re-wiring multiple areas. As a small-business owner, I know how hard it is to find great workers. Josh and his team are exceptional, and ABC should keep a hold of him.”

“ABC Home & Commercial has been taking care of me and my house for over a decade. This review is for their Spring AC maintenance. They come out every year before the hot summer months arrive to make sure that my AC system will be up to the job. Randall checked everything: He conducted amp maintenance, checked the blower wheel & blower motor, checked all amps, pressures and temperatures, cleared the drain line, flushed, and primed the u-trap, checked the capacitors, contractors and safety components and washed the condenser. I would never do all that myself. Most people are lucky if they remember to put bleach (or white vinegar as Randall suggested instead) in their drain line occasionally. AC in Texas is one of those things that always goes out at the most inconvenient time. I think it's important to do my part to take care of one of the most expensive "appliances" in my home. ABC will be back in the fall to do the checkup on my heating system. A few years ago, they discovered that my heater would not have started the next time it was needed, and they were able to replace the part right then and there for a good price. The folks they send are always professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I highly recommend ABC Home & Commercial!”
