In July, a group of volunteers from across the U.S. converged with DeWalt Pressure Washers in hand to remove years of dirt and grime from the monument commemorating one of the nation’s greatest presidents.
The cleaning effort is part of Clean Across America, a volunteer effort organized by the Power Washers of North America (PWNA), the leading U.S. professional organization for professional power-washer contractors. Its members annually tackle projects around the country aimed at cleaning up public spaces.
The PWNA’s Clean Across America campaign began years ago when members donated their services to local communities, parks, public aid programs, and other charity-based organizations. This volunteer program has tripled the value of donated services in the past two years.
“CAA consists of a huge variety of projects. It isn’t just about large high profile projects,” states Mr. Bockman. “It’s about one person making a difference in the world around them.” CAA continues to gain momentum through highly visible projects to draw attention to the proper pressure washing techniques and standards set by the PWNA.
“Together with the PWNA, we’re pleased to be a part of this worthwhile and much-needed effort,” said John Weetenkamp, Group Product Manager for Pressure Washers. “It’s gratifying to know that DeWalt pressure washers are contributing to the enjoyment of those people who visit the Lincoln Memorial by restoring it to the more pristine state that a monument of this national importance deserves.”
