A common misconception is that pressure washing and power washing are the same service with ‘power’ and ‘pressure’ often being used synonymously.  While both power washing Wilmington, NC and pressure washing Wilmington, NC are VERY similar in that they both use pressurized water to wash away dirt, algae, mud and many other materials from homes and surfaces, they are different in that power washing uses heated water to blast away materials.  Fortunately All Brite Pressure Washing & More offers both pressure washing Wilmington, NC and power washing Wilmington, NC for homeowners, business owners, HOAs, and other groups throughout Southeastern North Carolina.  Although these are both great options to cleaning your property, there are specific situations where each washing should be utilized.  

When should I use Pressure Washing versus Power Washing?
