Choosing a Name for Your Pressure or Power Washing Business

Once you have decided to start a pressure / power washing company and have chosen the form of business you will use, you will want to choose a name for your company. Your company name should create a clear impression in someones mind what you do. Your company name should be easy to remember, and should sound professional. Long, needlessly complicated names are often harmful to your business’s success. It is also important to keep in mind that most listings are alphabetical. Therefore, if you choose a name like “Zebra Pressure Washing”, you will always be last on the list. If you choose “AAA Power Washing”, you will always be first. Search the internet for striping company names.  You cannot use a name if it is already being used in your state, however,  if you are in Florida and someone is California has a name you like you can most likely use it because you are in different states.

If you are forming a corporation, you can visit your State’s division of corporations on the internet and see if the name you would like is available. If an online search is not available you can call them. If you are forming a sole proprietorship or partnership you will need to check with your county clerk about filing for a fictitious name. In most states and counties you can use your own name and then “Power or Pressure Washing” and you do not have to file for a fictitious name since that is your legal name already. Check with your local business license office to be sure. Whatever you pick, make sure it is what you want since it is an inconvenience to have to change it later.

Here are some good names that I have seen over the years:

  • Affordable Pressure Washing
  • Aqua Force Pressure Washing
  • Aqua Man Power Washing
  • H20 Washing
  • Hydro Clean Power Washing
  • Wash Away Cleaning

That is just a few. Good luck with your business.
