Improve Curb Appeal Immediately by Pressure Washing your House

If you are planning to sell your home, host a large reunion or simply want to spruce up the curb appeal of your home, pressure washing is the way to go! Years of dirt and grime could be holding your home’s beauty back. Pressure washing has many benefits, especially if done every few years.

Remove Algae and Mildew

Most pressure washing solutions contain chemicals such as mildewcides and rinsing agents that clean mildew and algae off your home and then be rinsed off in a matter of a few hours.  Feel good knowing your home is clean and sanitized.

Brighten Exterior Paint Colors

Years of dirt and grime can make a home look less vibrant and dull.  Pressure washing allows the color to shine through again for way less than it would cost to repaint.

Safe For Your Home

Most pressure washing companies offer a low pressure wash that can safely clean most exteriors such as wood, vinyl siding, stucco and brick surfaces. They have the techniques and cleaners that can easily wash those hard-to-reach areas.

Do It Yourself

It is also possible to rent a pressure washer from a local home improvement store. They usually charge by the day at reasonable prices. However, you’ll have to read up on the rinses you may want to use to spray on your home to be able to clean it properly. You can also use it to clean your driveway or gutters.  Once you get a clean spot, its hard to quit!

Overall, pressure washing is a much less expensive way to bring back he beauty of your home.  Consider hiring a professional or renting the equipment for your next home project.

Give Your Home A Face-Lift With A Pressure Wash

Weather and time can wreak havoc on your home’s exterior. Decks can fade from brown to gray, pavers can become dull and roofs and siding can grow moss and fungi, taking away from the beauty of your home. Luckily there is a weapon to take away the grime and give your home a face-lift: a professional pressure wash. 

Why Hire A Professional Pressure Washing Company?

Although many homeowners may own a pressure washer, there are benefits to hiring a professional, especially for those big jobs. While a home pressure washer may be fine for spraying down the driveway or washing your car, there are jobs it may not be suited for. Improperly using a pressure washer can damage your home and may end up doing more harm than good. Some reasons to hire a professional pressure washing company for certain home cleaning jobs include: 

  • Protecting surfaces – Certain surfaces such as painted homes and decks or roofs can be ruined with improper pressure washing.
     
  • Environmental issues – Most areas have laws regarding the types of cleaners that can be used in conjunction with a pressure washer, as well as laws on collecting gray or run-off water.
     
  • Safety – Protect your own safety by hiring a professional to do high areas, which can be hazardous to the do-it-yourselfer. 

Pressure washing can make an noticeable difference in the way your home looks, and even protect it from damage when done correctly. Scheduling a professional pressure washing to give your home a needed face-lift can add to the curb appeal and beauty of your home, and is well worth the investment.
