Power Washing Your Cincy Home Can Improve Curb Appeal and Prevent Issues
Over time, the exterior of your home will inevitably collect dirt, stains, grime and perhaps even mold and mildew. This can degrade your home’s visual appeal and create an unhealthy environment. But just thinking about cleaning up such a mess can be exhausting. That’s where a power washer comes in. By power washing your home, you can remove the dirt and grime more effectively and in much less time than scrubbing. Even better, you can hire a trusted handyman to do the job for you. Find out what to expect, and how power washing your home can really improve curb appeal.
What to Expect
Preventative power washing keeps your home looking nice and helps prevent problems. In general, you can expect the following from a pro handyman when power washing your home:
- A handyman knows the proper water pressure needed to effectively clean the various surfaces around your property, ensuring it won’t cause damage by being too strong or positioned too close.
- A pro also understands the proper techniques and the right spray tips to use on the different areas. For example, it’s best to use a continuous sweeping motion and a medium pressure spray on decks. Siding is usually cleaned with a low pressure spray.
- Your home will be power washed from head to toe. By starting at the top and moving downward, the dirt can flow away more efficiently. If done in the opposite order, the dirt can be sprayed back up onto the area that was just cleaned.
- If you have a porch, patio or deck, it will be washed after removing the dirt and mildew from your exterior walls to push any debris away from your house. If there are any stubborn spots, a cleaning solution may be used.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
