HIGH PSI was founded in 1976 by Tim Layden, a Vietnam Veteran, and Karen Layden out of their garage just days after they were married.

Tim’s background growing up on a farm in central Illinois (and hence fixing everything under the sun that can and did break), plus his post college sales experience, along with Karen’s business management degree and experience made for a perfect combination. They heard about this new tool called a pressure washer that could clean way faster than the old mop and broom method.

Almost no one was using pressure washers back in those days, so they had an uphill battle, but they dove right in. They both quit full-time jobs and started selling pressure washers.

Tim called on anyone and everyone he could, often following Karen’s directions, to not return home until the machine on the back of his truck was sold. They had bills to pay! Fast forward a few years, and they hired their first employee and were able to rent a space away from their home. With time came experience and expertise, and High PSI became Chicago’s leading source on all things pressure washing. Through the years, they have built up their team and their space.
