Pressure washer expert Alex Woodward loves a good surprise

Pressure washer expert Alex Woodward loves the surprise he sees on homeowners’ faces every time he and his team complete a home improvement or restoration project.

“They just light up when they see how much an old, dirty surface can be transformed in just a few minutes,” he says.

Alex owns a home improvement and restoration company in Vancouver, British Columbia. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management from Saskatchewan Polytechnic in 2010 and is a NARI Certified Remodeler. His team does a wide range of home restoration products, both interior and exterior. They also restore historic properties and those damaged by storms and floods.

Without pressure washers, Alex believes his productivity would be cut in half. “Pressure washers make our job a hundred times faster,” Alex says. “It’s nearly impossible to remove years of mold, moss, and tree sap by hand.”

Since his crew uses pressure washers nearly every day, he understands just how important safety is and knows about every tip and trick to troubleshoot problems. He’s familiar with a wide range of brands and types of power washers, which is why we’re grateful to have him as a consultant for Cleanup.Expert’s pressure washer section.

Alex resides in Vancouver with his wife of just 5 years, Amanda, and their two Border Collies, Buster and Boomer.
