You may have heard these two terms used interchangeably but they vary by one key difference: temperature. While both use pressurized water to remove dirt, mildew, paint and other substances, power washing specifically uses heated water to do this. Both have distinct advantages and best uses.
Using the right temperature and setting can be the difference between a nice clean car and one that is now sporting a multitude of dents. This is also another good reason to only use professional power washing services.
Because of its heating elements, power washers are best suited towards smaller areas that need a deeper clean. If you’ve ever been plagued by weeds growing in your sidewalk or driveway cracks, power washing is the answer to taking care of these areas. Not only will the power washer’s spray remove the weeds, the heat will help kill remaining seeds to prevent growth for longer. Additionally, since no weed killer is needed, this method is safer for you and the environment.
It’s called pressure/power washing for a reason! With 1,500 to 4,000 lbs of pressure per second, a washer is up to 80 times stronger than a regular garden hose. Not only can this cause property damage, it can even break skin which can result in deep wounds and infection.

Great job, once again. We take pride in keeping our condo clean and welcoming. Ever since we hired this company for cleaning, the environment both inside and out has become so much more pleasant. I know we’ll be using your services for many years to come. We do have to chase sometimes for paperwork and billing, so I'll take a mark off for that. But the service itself is second to none.
The new home is finally complete and all I can say is thank you! It’s exactly the way we wanted and the wall color compliments our furniture so well. I’m glad we chose Aurum Home Care’s painting service. They provided a very professional consultation and gave great advice while getting into the project. The consultation, preparation and painting went really well; your staff deserves a compliment.
I’m very impressed with the hard work Aurum did on my windows. I’ve never seen them look so clear since they were installed. The whole process was easy and simple. I called Aurum to schedule an appointment and the window cleaner showed up on my doorstep half-an-hour early and was done before sundown!
I just had my windows cleaned today June 30/16. The gentlemen names are James & Corey, they did a fantastic job of my windows. I would recommend them a lot. I gave them a 5 star rating.
Aurum Home Care does a great job at clearing driveways, parking lots, sidewalks and walkways of office buildings. They also spread salt on icy surfaces to ensure the safety of employees and visitors. Aurum did a splendid job this winter and I am looking forward to using them in the future. Let’s keep in touch.
Window cleaning was the last task we did this fall after a summer of outdoor reno. There was quite an accumulation of dust and dirt on the windows. I had difficulty wiping and cleaning off the stains and dirt myself. I called Aurum for a quote and scheduled them for an appointment the following day. They came in on time for the appointment and did a very consistent, thorough job.
My windows looked brand new and the price was affordable and reasonable. I would not hesitate to use your services again. Plus the work you did on the gutters was super. I really don't trust my knees to get up their anymore. We've noticed since your work that rain runoff is not pooling like before because the gutters are finally working fine.
