Shimek's Powerwashing restores everything from oil-stained garage floors to graffitied store fronts, all while showing respect for Mother Nature. The company meets—and often exceeds—the standards set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency by relying on a trailer-mounted filtration system that reuses water. After ridding residential and commercial structures of debris, stains, or "kick me" signs left by local giants, the system sucks the used water back in through a vacuum, filters it right there on the spot, and uses it once again.
When it comes to washing delicate siding, the staffers forgo high-pressure washing for a soft-wash process that uses a light stream of water and powerful cleaning agents. This ensures that water won't dent the material or sneak behind the siding to make it structurally unsound. Siding isn't the only thing Shimek's Powerwashing goes easy on, though—it's also easy on client schedules, offering services anytime seven days a week.
