5 Reasons You Should Pressure Wash Your Home Every 3 Months
Your home is your sanctuary. Your castle, your abode. Don’t neglect the literal roof over your head. Let us check out the five reasons to pressure wash your home every 3 months:
1. Get rid of unsightly dirt and grime:
Dirt builds up over time both inside your house and out. You already clean the interior regularly, why not the exterior as well? However, you shouldn’t grab your 409 cleaner or Scrubbing Bubbles and a rag. For big jobs like this, we get to use big tools! Blast the grime and mold buildup away with a power washer. If not cleaned quarterly, your house will start looking old and dingy. And what will your neighbors say about you then?
2. Keep that New House look:
If you hire a pressure washing company every three months to clean your home, then you never have to worry about the paint of the house. Your home will always look as if you have just bought it. With minimal expense and virtually no effort on your part, you can be the shining beacon of your subdivision.
3. Get rid of odor:
If you do maintain a regular pressure washing schedule, then you notice that your house will smell cleaner and fresher. You may not know this but dirt and mold smell. And not in a good way like lavender or bacon. Most pressure washing companies use detergents and chemicals to get rid of odors and keep them from coming back for months. With routine maintenance, you will never have to know what mildew smells like. Have you ever walked into an old house and thought, “this smells like an old house”? That’s mildew!
4. It’s fairly inexpensive:
If you decide to do it yourself, then you first need to buy the proper equipment for the job. Which can be expensive. And then you have to store it, maintain it, keep your kids from playing on it, etc.. And on top of it all, you have to spend a precious Saturday doing it all yourself or trying to train your children to operate heavy machinery. Which may be illegal in your state, depending on the child labor laws. So it may be better to hire a professional to save your money and as well as energy too. And possible jail time. Plus those guys are insured in case they break something.Which your kids will undoubtedly do.
5. Extend the life of your home: Mildew, mold, and dirt can eat away at concrete, brick, siding, and wood. Maintaining a clean exterior can prevent wood rot, cracks in the driveway, and the need to replace your roof. The trick is to get it all out the first time and then keep it from coming back. This is especially true if your house is in a shady area, under trees, or near water. Especially if you live in a pineapple under the sea. That’s like a magnet for mold. And sea anemones. But seriously, cleaning the exterior of your home will not only improve your resale value but also save you money in the long run.
The Industrial Revolution brought about the concept of specialization. Basically instead of being good at a lot of things, you can be awesome at one thing and have someone else who is an expert in another field handle that aspect. The same holds true for house cleaning. I know that I can’t clean my house as well as a maid service. This applies to cleaning the outside of your home as well. The team of pressure washers will know how to do it right the first time, in the best way, in less time. Don’t be the guy with the streaky driveway or have to replace your roof early because you used the high pressure setting (which voids most roof warranties).
Following a regular cleaning schedule can add years to your home while taking years off (see what I did there? Pretty slick, huh?). So don’t neglect your curb appeal. Clean today!
