Do you have these misconceptions about Pressure-Washing?

Pressure washing is a great way to get your outdoor space looking new again. Epic Bin offers pressure washing services in Calgary and the surrounding areas to help you get the most out of your pressure washing experience, without the headache.


Here are some common misconceptions about pressure washing and the actual facts.

Misconception #1: You can pressure wash your property yourself.

It is very easy to damage your decking, vinyl or composite decking if pressure washed incorrectly. All pressures do not work the same for all surfaces. Wood, for example, is very easy to stain and damage using a pressure that is too strong. The same pressure might not be enough for a surface made of stone.

Misconception #2: High pressure is necessary for a good clean.

In fact, some surfaces cannot be cleaned using high pressure and will get damaged if you use it on them. For these surfaces a different technique, called soft washing, is used to prevent damage. High pressure only is a sign you might be working with an amateur.

Misconception #3: Pressure washing chemicals will damage the landscape and plants.

In fact, professional pressure washing companies use cleaning products that are environmentally friendly and won’t harm your plants or landscaping.

At Epic Bin Pressure Washing Services we take special care to preserve your property and the landscape during the pressure washing process.

Misconception #4: Cheaper is better.

This isn’t always the case—these cheaper companies may skimp on quality, cut corners to save money, and end up costing you more in the long run because they aren’t very proficient at what they do. At Epic Bins, we take pride in our work and are committed to providing you with quality service at a fair price. We will never compromise your landscape or plants by using inferior cleaning chemicals that might damage them—our friendly staff is dedicated to preserving your property for many years to come.

Misconception #5: A true professional can provide an estimate over the phone

A rough estimate for sure, but nothing more than that until they come out and look at your property in person. Many people are surprised to learn that a real professional will not be able to provide an estimate over the phone. This is because every job is different and requires careful planning, which simply cannot be done without seeing your property first hand.

How many cubic yards of dirt are being removed?

Is there any debris that needs to be hauled away as well?

How much will it cost for disposal?

These are just a few of the questions we need answers to in order to provide you with an accurate estimate.

At Epic Bins, our customer service staff are trained professionals who can answer any questions you might have regarding our services—they’re ready 24/7 so feel free to call anytime!
