Nothing makes a house look worse than old grimy siding and stained patios, walkways, decks and stairs. Cleaning your house with a good power wash can make it look nicer, brighter and more inviting. Are you underestimating the power of a clean looking home exterior? If so, you need to read about these important benefits of power washing your home.
Power Washing Prevents Costly Repairs
Built up dirt and grime doesn’t just make your home look worn; it can actually cause damage and that can cost you thousands in repairs. Mold, mildew, algae and even dirt can all infiltrate the wood in your home and cause serious structural damage. Also, a dirty house invites insects to intrude. But that’s not all. Exposure to the elements (rain, wind and sun) oxidizes over time, leaving your house vulnerable to all sorts of problems. Lucky for you a good power wash can help stave off problems and help prevent maintenance problems in the future.
Power Washing Makes Your Family Healthier
If anyone in your family suffers from allergies, a good cleaning can help get rid of the things causing all of that wheezing and sneezing. Anytime you can get rid of allergens on the exterior of your home; you make it less likely that they will get inside where they can wreak havoc on your family’s health.
Power Washing Removes Pollutants
The environment is full of pollutants: acid rain; bird excrement; smoke, and more. All of these things can settle on the surface of your home’s exterior, putting you at risk of contamination. Power washing helps clean away pollutants.
Power Washing Saves Time
Sure, you can scrub your siding with a brush or hose it down to help clean off dirt and debris, but that takes time and energy. Power washing is a quick and effective way to get the job done in a fraction of the time of other cleaning methods. Plus, it offers the kind of power a scrub brush can’t. In most cases, power washing your home takes only a few hours.
How Often Does Your Home Need Power Washing?
Depending on where you live (and how severe your home’s exposure to the elements), it is a good idea to have your home power washed at least once a year; twice if your home is under constant attack from trees, UV rays, wind and rain; or other dirt and grime.
