Pressure Washing America "Family Man is Proud of Continuous Growth"
By: Pressure Washing America
Such a trait in a business owner is a huge plus when you are looking for the perfect company to get a job done right.
Simmons owns Pressure Washing America—a top-rated pressure washing company based in Houston, Texas. Since starting the business in 2005, he has grown into offering a variety of services to help clean up built-up dirt and grime on homes and businesses.
Pressure Washing America works on any size project from one-story homes to enormous buildings.
"We have tackled some of the most exciting power washing projects you can think of from huge hotels to entire college campuses," he said.
There are numerous reasons to regularly power wash.
"The primary reason to regularly power wash is to keep your home or business looking great. It is likely your largest investment, so it's important," Simmons said.
Of course, how a structure looks is extremely important, but regular pressure washing helps with safety too.
Pressure washing extends the life of paint. Keeping indoor concrete floors clean reduces indoor allergies and removing the gunk also helps prevent slip and fall accidents. It also eliminates mold, mildew and algae which retain moisture and eats structures causing premature damage.
Many homeowners and businesses are playing catch-up after the world experienced Covid-19. Like it was for many business owners, Simmons said Covid was a challenging time when fear filled the air.
"People were afraid. Afraid to spend money, afraid to have other people around, and just afraid of the future in general," he said.
Simmons was already a step ahead after Pressure Washing America had previously adopted a touch-free payment system.
"We have long accepted touch-free payments and I make sure all our potential clients are aware we offer this option. I assure customers the job can be done at no risk to them," he added.
Details, like reputation, is important when deciding who to hire to complete work on your home or business.
"There are a lot of newer and possibly cheaper power washing companies, but many lack the knowledge, experience or insurance coverage you should demand before hiring a power washing company to work on your home or business," Simmons said.
"We have been in the industry for more than 15 years. Many competitors won't make it through next year, and that's the nature of this industry. Many other companies will never have the experience and knowledge we bring to every project," he said.
He is proud of how far he has come since starting the business to make a little extra cash for his wedding.
"I started as a one-man operation," he remembered. There were many challenges for a new businessman in the industry. Equipment was a big challenge for me at first," he said. "A piece of equipment would break or you would realize you weren't fully equipped to tackle a certain project."
He took it day by day and learned as he grew.
I learned how to repair and preserve the equipment to minimize the likelihood of something going wrong with it. His arsenal of tools also grew which tremendously allowed the company to tackle larger jobs.
In the first year of doing business, he completed 40 - 50 projects. By 2019, the biggest year so far, his crews completed 634 jobs including many large commercial projects.
His family drives him to keep growing.
"I am inspired to be the best husband and father to my five kids that I can be," he said. "Running your own business really helps you focus on yourself, family, and your faith."
Simmons thanked all those who helped him along the way. "I thank my family and God," he said. "Without them, I wouldn't have been able to be successful in this business or anything else."
