About Blast Off Pressure Washing Team
Tyler Gaffka, Owner
Born and raised in Brighton Michigan, I joined the Marine Corps after high school. I spent the first part of my journey stationed in Hawaii as an infantry machine gunner with 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines. From there I received orders to Parris Island where I coached marksmanship on the rifle and pistol ranges as well as instructed recruits on the basic infantry skills required to become a Marine.
After retiring from military service, I decided to stay here and continue to serve in a different way. I started Blast Off.
Knowing that a business cannot succeed without happy customers, and happy customers are created by a happy team, I have developed a culture of customer service that is both unique and unparalleled.
I have created an environment where striving to do the best job possible is both fun using our top of the line equipment and rewarding.
Our technicians are incentivized by profit share, bonuses for positive feedback and are eager to put a smile on your face!
