About Our President Henry Bockman

Henry Bockman is a Navy Veteran that served with the F-14 Squadron "The Starfighters" on board the USS America as an Aviation Ordinance man specializing in F-14 weapons systems.

In 1989 Bockman left the military and started a home maintenance company in Maryland called Henry's Housework. Since 1989 Henry's Housework has built a customer base of 40,000 clients for gutter cleaning, pressure washing and handyman services with 8 full time employees in Montgomery County Maryland.

In 2003, Bockman worked with the Power Washers of North America to create a nationwide program called “Clean Across America” that called upon individuals who did pressure washing and restoration services to come together to clean parks, playgrounds and public gathering places. The concept was embraced by many in these industries who followed Bockman’s leadership in taking on charitable projects on varied scales.

Henry Bockman was named the Daily Point of Light for the date of March 12, 2007. The Daily Point of Light is granted to individuals who reflect the spirit of the Points of Light Foundation, and he is the 3418th recipient of the honor.

Henry Bockman believes in the value of businesses drawing from their expertise to impact their own communities in positive ways.

He has applied this philosophy through his own business over the years, and, for his various public contributions, has been honored by the Points of Light Foundation with his own designated day.

In 2005 Bockman started a new division called Commercial Restorations, to expand into commercial, industrial  and Government pressure washing services.  Some of their projects include Military bases, processing plants, college campuses, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Abner Doubleday Stadium and other landmark locations around the Nation.

Since he started pressure washing Bockman has taken nearly every power washing training course available, and been certified by the Power Washers of North America, Wolman, Jahn Masonry and Restoration services, Seal N Lock, American Builders and Restoration, BASMA, Cathedral Stone, the Contractors Foundation, Alliance Trade Education Services and worked with other contractors to create many of the power washing classes in existence today.

In 2006 Bockman and two other prominent members in the Pressure Washing Industry joined together to create The Contractors Foundation to create advanced courses for the pressure washing industry, and classes designed to teach people how to start a successful pressure washing company. Then in 2016 Bockman traveled to England to work with Gavin Reardon and Michael Conway to help create the first International training program in the United Kingdom for softwashing and pressure washing.

Bockman has served on the Board of Directors for the Power Washers of North America as the Chairman of the communications committee, PWNA Webmaster, PWNA BBS Administrator, creator of Clean Across America campaign, and as the President and founding member of the Maryland State Chapter of PWNA. Bockman has received PWNA Marketing awards, the Joe Walters Award, letters of recognition from The Governor of Maryland and the Daily Points Of Light Award from President Bush.  

In 2016, Bockman was appointed to the Commission on Veterans Affairs, testified for Congress, graduated from the Veterans Institute For Procurement, and worked with the Historical Society, National Park Services, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Maryland Home Improvement Commission to change the laws regarding the licensing for pressure washing services.
