- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I always wanted to own and run my own business (like everyone else in my family had already done.) However, I suppressed that urge and worked in hi-tech corporate for years. Then one day I decided I "had enough" of corporate life. During this transition time, my wife and I went on a missions trip, where we helped renovate run-down homes. We did all the pressure washing, and truly enjoyed it. We became known as the "king and queen of pressure washing." Afterwards, we continued in our neighborhood doing small jobs on the side. Then business started growing... almost beyond our capacity. While contemplating this good problem to have, we met Mike S, the former owner of Aqua-nomics. With an entrepreneurial mindset, some cash, and a big leap of faith, we decided to take the plunge, and purchased Aqua-Nomics! We are carrying on the name and great reputation of Aqua-Nomics, and are eager to make a difference in this industry. It's been a fun journey. Of course, all our success depends on our most important asset -- you.
- What types of customers have you worked with?
If it's outdoors, we can clean it! Residential and commercial. We clean houses, buildings, driveways, roofs, decks, pool patios, fences, gutters, playground equipment, patio furniture and more! We also stain wood and seal concrete. We love restoring your curb appeal.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always get proof of insurance and credentials prior to starting the job. This protects you! A responsible company keeps their insurance certificate at arm's reach. Also ask for a written quote. Ask how they determine price, and if it's a firm price or "estimate only". Reputable contractors will base pricing on square footage and surface type, and will stand behind their quote. Don't fall for a low-ball offer, only to have it increase when they arrive on-site. Lastly, will the company stand behind their work? Do they offer a satisfaction guarantee or warranty? And if so, how does that work? Aqua-Nomics is proud of what we do and offer a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.
