Spray Wash PRO also assists governments, corporations, and homeowners in their search for the best professional cleaners.
The cleaning industry is full of amazing professionals, but with same-day business cards and cheap websites, it’s sometimes hard for people to differentiate between real PROs and amateurs with recently purchased power washers. Our certifications help customers make safe and informed decisions in a crowded marketplace.JOIN NOW
How We Standardize The Industry
The more power washers with expert level skills and knowledge there are, the sooner the rest of society will understand that power washing and cleaning is a highly skilled trade – and deserves to be paid as such.
Almost no one would trust their new car to be repaired by someone with an ad on Craig’s List who just bought some tools at Home Deport last week. Almost no one would trust someone inexperienced to tear up and replace the roof on their family’s home. But, unfortunately, many people hire amateurs with a newly purchased power washer and little idea what they’re doing. This presents a few problems. Not only do these amateurs accept much lower wages than they could be earning, but they often cause permanent damage to customer property.
The low price charged by amateurs leaves customers thinking that power washing is unskilled work and the damage done to property leaves many with a negative view of cleaners in general. If you make a mistake, it will hurt your business. It’s frustrating, but it’s fair. What isn’t fair is that when other power washers make mistakes and ruin property, it makes your potential customers view you with suspicion. The entire profession is hurt every time an amateur destroys a customer’s property. This is both frustrating and totally avoidable.
At Spray Wash PRO, we believe that we’re stronger together. By educating and training new cleaners, we elevate their skills and the entire market for all of our services. Better trained power washers mean better reputations and higher wages for all of us. By setting industry standards and educating our members on how to achieve and maintain those standards, Spray Wash PRO is creating a world where our members all make more money and customers across the nation respect the power washing industry as the highly skilled, well paid profession that it is.
A Better Way Forward.
We’re often asked why we would want to help other people in the same industry we’re in. Though lots of people think that way, we believe that it’s a very shortsighted view for many reasons. First, in a skilled trade like power washing, there are a lot of variables to understand to avoid damaging property. By going alone, you’re taking huge risks that are both expensive and totally unnecessary. Refusing to educate yourself about the industry makes as much sense a refusing to check a map before traveling somewhere you’ve never been before. Sure, you might still get to your destination, but it’ll take much longer and you’ll waste a lot of time. If you don’t want to maximize your earning power and minimize the risks to your business, by all means, refuse the help.
Even if you’re an established professional who doesn’t feel like they need any education on power washing topics, the networking and referrals available to Spray Wash PRO members can help you take your business to the next level..
