Pressure Washer Tips

Tired of using ladders to clean high reach places, such as gutters and the sides of your home? Or maybe you would like to clean off your driveway or garage floor yourself, without the assistance of a professional.

    Pet odors
    Stale cooking/food smells
    Cigarette smoke

Smell makes an enormous impact on people when they enter a home. Furthermore, while smokers and pet owners may not even notice the smells in their home - having become quite accustomed to them - they may be an overwhelming turn-off for potential buyers.

In this case, have a non-smoking, non-pet owning friend come over to perform a sniff test.
