What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to make sure the customer knows exactly what we will be doing and I like to educate them on what should be done and what should be avoided during the cleaning process.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have extensive experience in the pressure washing and decorative concrete coatings area. I also am member of PWRA (Pressure Washing Resource Association) and many affiliations.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Although we have a base starting point, each job varies so while I can give some starting points there are other factors that go into the pricing like: size or square footage, how dirty the surfaces are, how many levels are the building, are there any stains or other items that need to be attended to (iron or rust stains, battery acid stains, black streaks, gum etc). For ballpark purposes though, we charge around $0.10 Per Sq. Ft. of homes & buildings, between $0.10 - $0.15 Per Sq. Ft. on roofs (depending on roof type) and around $0.10 - $0.12 Per Sq. Ft. on most flatwork. Again, each job must be quoted specifically to be accurate but these numbers can give a good idea.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was first introduced to pressure washing in early 2000's when I was employed by a company named Sundek, a decorative concrete coatings company. We typically restored concrete with decorative patterns like on patios, pool decks, driveways and more. Our first order of business was to pressure wash the area to get rid of any substances or debris. Then is 2014 I launched Tampa Pressure Washing after being permanently laid off from the mortgage industry when the company I worked for closed their doors.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with many types of customers ranging from mobile home owners to condo & townhouse owners to middle class neighborhoods all the way up to the most exclusive areas in Tampa and beyond like Davis Island, Tampa Palms, Tierra Verde, Treasure Island and many golf course communities. I have done work for some well know professional retired athletes as well as the former mayor of St Petersburg. I have also worked for HOA communities, medical offices, parking garages and much much more.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I am fond of all the jobs I do as long as they come out the way I hoped. Some of my customers consider me a perfectionist and I am always trying to come as close to perfect as I can in every situation. But the
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would advise customers to make sure they feel comfortable with who they are dealing with. Go with your gut but also make sure the company is: Reputable, offers some sort of Guarantee or Assurance that the job will be done right, is Insured and actually enjoys what they do. Also, check for reviews online and see if the company has any complaints.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
1. What is your process for cleaning ______ (what ever you are looking to have cleaned)? Do you use high pressure or use chemicals in place of high pressure?
2. How long have you been in this line of work?
3. Do you have any reviews or testimonials that I can refer to?
4. Do you offer any other services that would go well with what I am having done this time?
5. Do you guarantee or stand by your work?
