Learn things you should consider before power washing your home and the benefits of doing so.
If you’re on the fence as to the benefits of pressure washing your home, here are the top five reasons why pressure washing is super important and why you should get it done.
Things to Consider Before Pressure Washing
Harsh winters and hot summers can take a toll on any building materials which can affect how often, and when to pressure wash your home. If you live in an area with these harsher climates, try pressure washing your home at least twice a year. More temperate climates can be pressure washed once a year.
Unless you know what nozzle and chemicals you need to clean your home, we recommend hiring professionals (like A&J Ecoblasting). You don’t want your paint to be stripped or leave water pressure lines on your siding.
Benefits of Giving Your House a Bath
Overall, the benefits of pressure washing prove how important this task is to protect the investment of your home and the people that live there.
It Protects the Health of Your Family
Depending on where you live and what surrounds your home, mold and mildew can settle in and on the surfaces outside your home. Mold and mildew are common irritants for those who suffer from asthma and allergies, so washing your home at least twice a year can be beneficial to ease those conditions.
Routinely pressure washing your home prevents the build-up of things like mold, mildew, and dirt. If left on the surface of your home, over time this grime can cause your home’s building materials to deteriorate and need to be replaced instead of just repaired more often. Routine maintenance is key to keeping your home in shape.
Prevents Major Damage
The last thing any homeowner wants is to have major damage to their home. Allowing things to deteriorate on the outside can lead to a breakdown inside the home as well. We’re talking leaks or general rot, which can ultimately cost thousands of dollars to repair.
Primes Surfaces for Paint
Before any exterior painting project, it is necessary to have a clean surface to work with. Painting over grime is not attractive and may use more paint than necessary (exterior paint can be expensive!). It will also clear off any old paint that is barely hanging on to allow for a smooth surface to paint.
Improves Curb Appeal
The first impression when someone comes to your home happens the second they pull up. Taking care of the outside of your home not only looks good but shows that you genuinely care about the health of your home. Keeping up with exterior maintenance helps to increase your property value and the property value of the neighborhood. When selling your home, it’ll be hard to get buyers inside if they are turned off by the outside. Not to mention, it’s satisfying watching your home transform and look totally brand new after a good pressure wash!
