Why should I have my home Power/Pressure washed?
Many of us keep the inside of our houses looking clean,
sometimes spending hours tidying the whole house. We do the same for yards,
garages, and windows. However, many of us seem to neglect the exterior of the
house, when in reality we should not. The exterior of your house endures wind,
rain, hail and sun. All of these elements take a toll on your house and can
cause it to look grimy and moldy. By having your home washed it will give a
fresh clean look. There are also benefits to having your home washed.
On one hand you could spend hours scrubbing the outside of your house if you do it yourself, and it may not even cause a dent in the problem. Whereas power washing allows someone else to get the dirt and grime off faster. Power washing also saves you money in the long run. Power washing could be considered preventative maintenance against various problems that could cost you much more money to repair, such as cleaning your gutters. It also helps maintain your property, giving your house curb appeal and aesthetic value. Proper washing helps prevent your material degrading. Keeping the exterior clean not only improves your homes appearance, but also can add 5 to 10 percent market value to your home.
As mentioned before, power washing saves you time. By having
someone power wash your house, it frees your time up, that means no mixing
cleaners, no scrubbing, no climbing ladders. Power washing also prevents damage
to your home, winter can cause severe stains and damage to your house and its
exterior. Leaving the dirt, mold, mildew, and stains sit on your house can
cause permanent damage to your home.
Many people suffer from allergens that can make your day horrible. Power washing can sometimes reduce the allergen levels around your home, by removing the mold, spores, and mildew that sometimes cause them. Regular house washings can stop the mildew from spreading and starting new growth spots that can lead to inside your home.
Another reason to power wash your home is to prepare it for various things. Having your home painted? Then have it washed first, remove the dirt and prep the home for a nice even and clean looking coat of paint that will be going on it.
