Why You Need to Do It
Keeping the exterior of your Home or Commercial building clean helps to protect the structure from harmful elements and reduces structure maintenance. Siding, roof, eaves, and awnings protect you from all manner of natural conditions. The gradual accumulation of dirt, insects, pollen, plant debris are both unsightly and unsafe. Residue from car exhaust and outside pollutants stick to your exterior structure surfaces. Before long, the constant exposure to UV rays and pollutants move your structure from unsightly to unsafe.
Power washing is the best way to clean the exterior of a structure.
1. Helps to Prevent Damage
The outside of your home naturally accumulates seasonal moisture. As moisture collects on your home exterior, it also begins to build up a layer of grime. This layer of moistened dust, pollutants and debris soon becomes a foothold for serious issues. When grime is allowed to set, mold and mildew will grow and stains will develop and set into the surface.
Many types of mold, algae, and mildew feed on the surface paint and finish of your home. Washing the house exterior removes the pollutants before they can do permanent and serious damage.
2. Regular Exterior Washing Saves You Money
In most all cases, maintenance is less expense than repairs. Keeping painted and/ or vinyl clad surfaces clean help to extend their lifespan and reduce repair costs. In addition, clean surfaces help protect the value and curb appeal of your home.
3. Washing the Exterior Is Perfect Prep for RePainting
Pressure washing is the ideal way to prep a home exterior for refinishing and repainting. Pressure washing can strip off old paint and surface finish and dirt faster than you can do it by hand; leaving a clean, smooth surface that’s free of contaminants. On a clean surface, paint will stick to the surface quickly and dry reliably. The same is true prior to refinishing a deck or patio; you will find better results if you pressure wash before you apply the finish.
4. Cleaning Removes Health and Safety Hazards
Mildew, mold, allergens, dust and irritants don’t just mar the beauty of a home, but they can also affect the health of your family. Stop mold from growing and making their way indoors by pressure washing your home exterior. Removing the buildup of mold and mildew outside can help prevent sickness in your home.
Pressure washing pathways, patios, steps and sidewalks also gets rid of slippery weed and algae buildup.
5. Power Washing is Easier on the Environment
With pressure washing, the force of the water jet is often sufficient to remove most if not all dirt on home exteriors and other surfaces. Limited detergents and cleaning agents are needed to clean the exterior. Compare that to manual scrubbing, which takes a lot of effort but often uses buckets of detergent.
But When detergents are needed, we use biodegradable and environment-friendly products.
