Venice is a neighborhood in the west side of Los Angeles, California. Not unlike the famous city with its canals and gondolas of the same name, Venice is a seaside resort town known for its canals, beach, front walk, and promenade.
Founded in 1905, Venice City CA was originally called the Venice of America. Intended as a beachfront town, Venice City has developed a distinct bohemian culture over the years. The famous boardwalk is lined with eclectic shops selling various funky items, and there are always street performers keeping the crowds entertained. Not to mention, the streets have several colorful murals that make your time outdoors a highly picturesque one.
Tourists and locals alike come to Venice City to enjoy the multifarious offerings in this thriving cultural center. For those who enjoy basking in the outdoor sun, there’s the famous Venice Beach, California—one of LA’s best beaches and a famous surf spot.
If you’re into other sports recreation, there’s the Venice Beach Recreation Center complete with children’s play areas, gymnastics centers, and various outdoor sports courts. In fact, many well-known NBA basketball players today developed their skills in these courts.
On the weekends, there’s the Venice Beach Drum Circle where a crowd forms to watch musicians from all over the world gather with them and play their drums, shakers, congas, and the like for an impromptu jam session.
The outdoor scene is surely a site to see in Venice City. With its unique bohemian culture and its tourist grabbing attractions, it’s never been more important for establishments to keep their storefronts, patios, and curbs clean and welcoming.

Pressure Washing Services in Venice
Being a beachfront town, the infrastructures in Venice take a bit more beating on their paint jobs and structural integrity. The sea air may be what the tourists and locals love, but this just means more maintenance work for business and homeowners in the city.
That’s why Venice properties benefit greatly from pressure washing or power washing. Check out the many reasons why pressure washing or power washing is the best cleaning method for the exteriors of Venice properties.
Cleans Like No Other
Of all cleaning procedures, pressure washing or power washing offers the most spotless cleanse. Not only is it effective against unsightly graffiti on your pristine walls, it’s also able to remove any build up that accumulates on the pavement and between bricks and tiles on your driveway, curb, and parking area.
And because power washing only uses highly pressurized water to scour surfaces, it’s also better for the environment compared to other washing methods.
Increases Property Value
The last thing you want after buying a property is letting it degrade to the point where its resale value doesn’t make it much of an investment at all.
Whether you have a business or a home, keeping your property clean and well maintained not only from the inside but also from the outside is incredibly impactful on your property’s resale value.
Pressure washing has the incredible ability to clean so that your property exterior looks as good as new…and a good-looking exterior is always good for business!
Keeping walls, sidewalks, and parking lots clean is not only for improved curbside appeal, it’s also a safety measure! When you hire pressure washers to maintain the cleanliness of your outdoor space, you are keeping your customers and staff safe from possible accidents and injuries caused by build up on your walkways and driveways.
Any good business prioritizes safety. Hiring professional pressure washers only helps keep your commercial property safe and welcoming to ensure customer satisfaction.
Prevents Unnecessary Repairs
Pressure washing services is a great investment. Though they cost a bit more than other cleaning services, they are a lot more thorough, and are able to get rid of the toughest grime, molds, algae, and mildew which means your property will not require repair and will have longer gaps between maintenance checks.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to pressure wash a house?
Cleaning power varies between pressure washer models. Eliminate anything that might trip you up or catch the hoses, while electrical fixtures and outlets outside should be turned off, and plastic should be taped down to cover them. Trim back any plants that contact the exterior of the house before wetting and covering all the plants around. Lock any neighboring doors and windows.
Avoid getting cleaning solutions or water behind the exterior surface no matter what kind of house exterior you are cleaning. For some typical exteriors, below is some information on home pressure washing:
Brick and Mortar
Before you clean the house, brick-and-mortar fix any damaged joints and let the repairs dry for at least a week. Before applying detergent, thoroughly wet the brick with a soft, low-pressure spray of water. By doing this, the detergent will be prevented from penetrating the brick. Work the spray upward while keeping your distance from the surface.
After you’ve completed cleaning and the brick has dried, you could notice efflorescence, a powdery, white substance that is a salt residue that moisture has sucked out of the brick. Apply a dry wire brush to the efflorescence to remove it. Use water and a soft-bristled brush to get rid of any leftover residue.
Before pressure washing, repair or replace damaged siding. Avoid gaps like those around the door and window trim while using the spray. If the siding panels overlap, start at the top panel and move down to the panel it covers. Do not spray underneath the panel’s bottom margins.
Before pressure washing, repair any chips and cracks in the surface and let them dry for at least a week. Hold the spray cannon or wand so that the spray strikes the stucco at a 45-degree angle in order to preserve the texture when cleaning the surface. Keep the nozzle away from the surface by at least 24 inches. Use a soft brush and a rust-removal solution to clear any copper or rust stains you see. Utilizing a garden hose and clear water, rinse the solution.
How to pressure wash a deck?
A pressure washer will do a better job of a deep cleaning than a chemical deck brightener when it comes to washing your wood deck in preparation for refinishing.
A pressure washer is a simple device that cleans very effectively using only water. However, if it’s not employed correctly, it might wreck your deck. This is a tool with enough strength to etch masonry yet delicate enough to wash siding in the right hands.
You risk extensively etching the wood and splintering the fibers if you use it with too much jet pressure, or position the tip too close to the deck’s surface. Before using the machine’s cleaning power on your deck, spend some time getting to know it.
The first steps in effectively power washing a deck are selecting the right power washer and operating it at the proper pressure level. Power washers can be harsh enough to remove a few cobwebs or powerful enough to slice into brick.
You will be best served by utilizing the lowest pressure level that is still functional when washing a hardwood deck. This is typically between 500 PSI and 600 PSI for soft timbers like cedar or pine. It may reach pressures of 1200 PSI to 1500 PSI for harder timbers.
Pick the appropriate tip to employ as well. Generally speaking, a fan tip or revolving tip, applied cautiously, will work best for cleaning wood. Always start the water pressure in a safe location, away from people and glass windows, and at least two feet from the wood deck. Then, gradually increase the distance from the deck to a range of roughly a foot to 18 inches. Never approach the deck closer than 12 inches, unless you’re using low pressure.
Keep in mind to start in a place that would be simple to fix or replace. Consider beginning with a stair tread, which is easier to replace than a whole deck board. Once you’re certain that the pressure is set correctly, start from the house and move outward while maintaining a constant distance and sweeping along the grain of the wood.
Before staining your freshly cleaned deck, you will need to sand it if the cleaning raised any soft wood fibers.
