89 Times Things Were Completely Transformed By Cleaning Them (New Pics)

There’s a part of us, deep down, that instinctively feels good whenever we see a mess tidied up or something dirty being cleaned. It’s all part of our innate desire to turn chaos into order. Right up there with accidental symmetry and fractals and when things line up perfectly in a photo, is none other than pressure washing which our perfectionist souls find oh-so-satisfying to watch.

The before-and-after photos from power washing projects are too good not to share, so Bored Panda has collected some of the best ones to make you go ‘mmm’ and ‘oh fudge, yes’ and think about what parts of your home or back yard need a good, long, hard, symmetrical clean.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

If you’re anything like us, some of these pics will have calmed your OCD down, so give the images you enjoyed the most an upvote. Was this list too short for you? Then you’ll want to check out our previous posts about pressure and power washing here and here. Enjoy!

(One note of warning: if you use a pressure washer, follow the instructions carefully; do not use it to wash animals or other people, no matter how dirty they may have gotten.)

Bored Panda reached out to Stephen, a Dublin-based power washer who runs The Powerwash Man service (does exactly what it says on the tin!). “Everyone, from kids to older people enjoy watching our videos,” he told us about the fact that people love looking at pressure washing videos and photos. “I think this may be because satisfaction is nearly instantaneous, seeing the results before your eyes. And with the ease of the power washer it is so satisfying.”

Stephen also revealed how the Covid-19 pandemic affected the power washing industry in Dublin. “With Covid this year, it’s thrown everyone off. We’ve seen a difference from last year. At first, we were just ticking by, but as people were at home, business actually went up. I’d say, as customers were looking at the dirt and grime everyday, they decided to get their power washing done,” he gave us his take about the ups and downs of the business during the pandemic.

“We had to approach how we dealt with customers differently, as I love to shake a customer’s hand at the start, tell them who I am and have the chats. This year, I find I’m not engaging the same as in the past due to Covid, but I’m sure we’ll be back to normal soon.”

Ralph Ryback, writing on Psychology Today, links our desire for organization and cleanliness to the fact that our bodies are well-organized and well-regulated even on an atomic level.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

“It wouldn’t be surprising, then, if the reason we crave symmetry and cleanliness in our homes is to mirror the organization within our very own bodies. Neatness and order support health—and oppose chaos,” he explains.

Whether or not that’s the case, tidiness and cleanliness are essential parts of being a grownup. By keeping our homes neat, we improve our health and we also stay fit because we’re on the move doing chores. It’s an essential part of living a high-quality life. So the next time you’re asked to take out the trash, do it with a smile. Or tell your partner that you’d gladly switch chores with them if they’ll let you power wash the patio.

We might not have a power washer at home, but guess who’ll be doing the dishes with a grin on their face today?
