The Top 4 Reasons to Pressure Wash Your Home
There are many reasons to pressure wash your home- take a few minutes to read about the top 4.
Pollen season is in full swing in Atlanta, Georgia and that means most of your porches and sidewalks may be covered in a hazy green dusting. You can sweep and dust, but you may need to go the extra mile this season with pressure washing. Pressure washing is an excellent way to care for your home. There are numerous benefits to pressure washing your home just once or twice a year. These are the top four.
- Increase curb appeal and home value
Although pressure washing is a relatively simple home maintenance task, it can boost the appearance of your home. Naturally, if your home is shiny and clean, it will be valued higher than a house that is covered in a blanket of moss and mold. Pressure washing not only your home, but also your driveway or sidewalk, can be the factor that sets you apart from all of the other houses in your neighborhood. Draw in potential buyers just from the lovely facade of a freshly pressure washed home.
- Preparation for paint
If you plan on touching up the paint on your home in the future, it is critical to pressure wash first. Pressure washing clears all of the debris from the exterior of your home so that there is a smooth, clean surface to apply paint. Just like sanding before painting, pressure washing ensures the paint will apply effortlessly and stay on as long as possible. Without this preparation, you run the risk of the paint peeling or coming off earlier than expected. Additionally, pressure washing can strip paint that is chipping so that there is a level surface for a new coat to be applied.
- Prevent growth of mold/ mildew/ moss
This time of year, rainfall is abundant. Because it rains so often in spring, water on your deck or porch can become a problem. Standing water promotes the growth of mold, mildew, moss, and more. If there is enough buildup, the surface of the deck becomes slick, which can be a potential hazard for anyone using it. Having high traffic areas outside your home regularly pressure washed will prevent growth and ensure your family and friends are kept safe from harm.
- Cleans allergens (pollen)
As mentioned above, with the arrival of spring comes the wave of pollen. Tree pollen covers every outdoor surface with a neon green blanket. Unfortunately, many people with allergies have to suffer through the spring with puffy eyes and runny noses. In order to wash away these seasonal allergens, pressure washing is recommended. Even though it is not a permanent solution to allergies, clearing pollen off of and around your home can temporarily ease the symptoms. Now is the best time to have your home pressure washed to clean off pollen and other allergens.
