Can anybody here recommend a pressure washer company, in Henderson/Las Vegas area?

Google results didn't turn up anything that looked too professional.

Thanks. -- CRJ.

What are you trying to clean? If it's a driveway, I used the guy whose ad on Craigslist reads "we clean those NASTY STAINS OFF YOUR DRIVEWAY". It's a company called "AAA Swept Away Janitorial". He showed up on time and did a reasonable job. My problem was that the oil stains went too deep. His equipment was more than capable of taking off the coating that was on top of the concrete, and even the concrete itself, but the oil stains would have remained. I'm going to have to have my driveway recoated (stamped). Two-car driveways run $90 to clean.

If it's just light duty stuff like the stucco on your house, wait until that cheap Karcher they sell at Target for $129 goes on sale for $89, and do it yourself.

Call a painting company. Most of them do pressure washing, too.

Sounds like they didn't know what they were doing. They should have pretreated the stain with muriatic acid. That should have lightened the stain sufficiently.

Oil stains can be hard or at least slow to be removed. You generally cannot just wash it all off a driveway with a pressure washer. You can wash off a thick coat of oil with the pressure washing and then use some chemicals, Dawn/white flour mix etc. to draw out the remaining soaked in oil.
It might take several applications and rewashings to get it all out.

I like the DIY method. I've been tempted to buy a medium-duty pressure washer off of Craigslist or a Pawn shop.

I bought the 1600 psi electric Target pressure washer on final clearance markdown for $35...LOL.

It works much better than expected and has had tons of use this month. Previously I had only used gas powered units, this seems absolutely comparable.

Were you just lucky to run across that deal, or were you alerted to it from an RSS feed from a site like slickdeals.net?

Lucky. I saw them on clearance at the Boca Park store (50% off) and checked them at one of the slower Target locations the same day. They happened to be 75% off at the other (Deer Springs) store so I snatched one up.
