A summer spent indoors basking in the air conditioner quickly leads into the warmth of the heater as cooler temps arrive. However, autumn is a great time to get outside and enjoy the changing colors. Protect the exterior of your home and improve the look by power washing the siding.
Extend Paint Life
When you drive up to your home, the first thing you notice is the exterior paint. Over time, the wind blows dirt and debris onto the home fading the color until its dull and lifeless. Power washing quickly cleans off the dirt and debris revealing the bright hue beneath. It is a cheaper alternative to repainting. Cleaning can help you extend your paint longer or prep the surface when you do need to repaint.
Remove Black Film
The exterior of the home keeps the elements away from where you sleep, eat and entertain. Unfortunately, the elements can leave behind black films on the siding and gutters. The siding can also accumulate algae if left to itself. Cleaning it with a power washer eliminates the unsightly look and keeps it from spreading potentially leading to further damage.
Improve Curb Appeal
Extend the cleaning power of your pressure washer beyond the siding of the home to improve the curb appeal for the entire house. The driveway, sidewalks, decks, gutters and patios could all use a good cleaning every now and then. A clean exterior instantly looks better with minimal effort and cost. Whether you plan to stay in your home for years to come or plan to sell soon, spraying off the dirt, debris and caked on gunk makes your home look nicer.
Keep in mind when power washing that homes built before 1978 may require special precautions as the paint could contain lead. Professional cleaners can take those necessary precautions to make your home look clean and well-kept once again.
