Amidst the hot steam, an all-night employee at Mobile Power Washing wore rubber boots and yellow rubber pants. He just cleaned more than 12,000 square feet of concrete, including loading docks, trash areas, sidewalks, and about a quarter of the way along with Home Depot’s massive “A-Street” store and 400 shopping carts. Fortunately, the Power deck builder Olney MD Hero earns a set salary and commission per square foot. Tonight he was working alone, but it was cold, so he spent a good part of the evening making fog and snow. The night before he cleaned 4 1/2 fast food restaurants, the night before he cleaned a large parking lot, the night before that stadium, with a small crew of three, but the night he worked alone. He didn’t mind, he could keep the 15% commission on the job, adding another $90.00 to his paycheck next week.

When he interviewed for the job,

They asked him if he wouldn’t mind working at night, which he prefers because he likes to sleep. He wakes up around one or two in the evening and falls asleep with the sunrise. At first, it took him a while to get used to those hours, and now he has no interest in changing. One day he would like to own his own company, but on this night, he is happy to work without anyone looking at him all the time, telling him what to do. As long as he gets all the work done, without any complaints, he pretty much feels like it’s working for himself anyway. Tonight he got his work done in record time, thanks to the rain, which speeded up the process and made it safe to stop cleaning shopping carts using a children’s pool to collect the wash water. By getting your carts already wet, it saved one step in the cleaning process.

As the founder of The Wash Guys,

People often ask me what kind of work our teams do. Not so long ago two students. Mike and Colin, of Ryerson University in Ontario, Canada, asked me to describe a day in the life of a power wash employee. Before I started franchising my company, I ran a power scrubber for 10 years, just like the ones we acquired later. Some days, I worked so hard, I didn’t have time to sleep. I would laugh at friends and say; Thank goodness for dirt, that was a very smart thing to get the world out of that first day! Needless to say, we never run out of work, something always needs stump grinding Sykesville MD. I’ve cleaned bridges, buildings, trucks, trains, runways, sidewalks, garbage compactors, shopping carts, parts of car washes, chicken coops, wind generators, gondolas, playgrounds, amusement parks, and factories, and I can also go on forever, the most years I’ve cleaned everything. Carefully, monitor the environment and return dirt to its place.

Oftentimes, while using a “Hydro-Twister”

(a lawnmower-sized device that stirs high-pressure hot water on a surface) doing flat (concrete) work I would think that if humanity disappeared, Mother Nature would restore human civilizations in less than a few decades, as dirt flew out and re-covered the entire area. Most employees of energy washing companies earn very good money, well above the minimum wage. Power-wash companies that do a mix of property management and street sweeping services typically pay higher. ServiceMaster has power wash services available and some of its employees are hired by the company in company-owned units, while others are hired directly by franchisees in the company. Most of them have benefits as part of their salary.

Today we see many immigrants, who take energy laundering as a business,

These companies usually start and participate in the underground economy, so the workers get paid in cash and do not receive benefits. This is usually also unfortunate because these small businesses do not comply with the environmental requirements of local NPDES permits, such as clogging storm drains and removing rich soft washing Ellicott City MD water, while cleaning gas stations, parking lots, and driving steps in QSRs (Quick Service Restaurants) or garbage areas. Generally the employees are paid fairly by the legitimate firms and at the lower end of the pay scale by the new entrants to the market, who do not follow all the rules, the legitimate firm has to work as promised and there is a competitive aspect to the quality employees. That means right now, with low unemployment numbers (below 5.5%), it’s a decent job. Many municipalities, transit zones, and businesses hire their own in-home power washers, which are paid very well with benefits. You’ll see them at night cleaning bus stops, utilities, concrete and sidewalk walks, and sometimes you’ll see them working during the day. Oftentimes, these employees will perform other jobs besides the general job description.
