Power Washing can help protect any surface from the most common damage and also increase its lifespan. Getting rid of the dirt reduces the chances of decay, rot, and premature aging...hence ruling out the need for repairs; which can be costly. Also your driveway and siding become more functional overtime. In addition, pressure washing your home is friendlier to your pocket. Overall, this process protects your homes surfaces from contaminants and the process costs less than having to do any repairs on the entire home.
Of course, you could scrub your home’s siding by hand; covering every inch with a sponge, brush, and a high-quality cleaning solution. However, pressure washing saves a lot more time over other cleaning methods. You can cover a much larger area in a short period of time with the right professional; penetrating deep below the surface contaminants without scrubbing too hard (soft washing). This results in a clean area for your home with half of the work.
Power washing your home can help you prepare it for painting and other projects. Painting a dirty wall is never a good idea. Even if your home looks clean, there may be contaminants, dust, dirt, and grime layered within the surface. Pressure washing removes these contaminants, preparing your home for the most effective painting possible. Paint adheres best to clean surfaces and will crack or chip if it is rolled over dirt and grime. If you are painting the exterior of your home, the first step is to ensure that you have the exterior surface cleaned so the paint will go on smoothly and last much longer.
Many people are unaware that pressure washing a home can improve the health of your home. If you have asthma or other breathing issues, for example, then you may be susceptible to contaminants in the air. Pressure washing your home and its exterior can remove algae, mold, and other toxic contaminants, preventing them from growing into a serious problem. If your home has a moldy or mildewy smell, or if you notice algae buildup around your exterior, then your poor cleaning habits could be affecting your health. Airborne contaminants that end up on your home can be harmful. Power washing regularly never gives them the chance to grow.
This power washing benefit is great for home owners who are trying to sell. Pressure washing can transform the appearance of your home. It’s like giving your home a makeover without the high cost of a construction or renovation project. Pressure washing can blast away years of dirt, mold, and grime buildup; significantly enhancing the curb appeal of your property. Whether you are selling your home or just improving its appearance; pressure washing is guaranteed to enhance curb appeal. The National Association of Realtors suggests that a power washed home can add up to $15,000 to the sale price.
While the amount of pressure that comes out of a pressure washer is great and safe for surfaces; it is not pleasant if it hits the home owner. Accidentally hitting yourself with the jet from a pressure washer can cause serious, gruesome injuries and it is not the kind of thing you want to risk. There is also the possibility of slipping and hurting yourself, or falling from a ladder while trying to reach difficult spots. An experienced professional washer knows what to do to keep both themselves and you safe from harm. We are 100% equipped to complete your project and have full liability insurance to cover up to 1M dollars in accidental problems that could happen so you do not have to worry about a single thing.
Power washing has the potential to be hard on the environment for a couple of reasons: it uses a lot of water, it can involve soap and other cleaning chemicals that aren’t good for the soil, and it can rinse grime, grease, and other pollutants onto the ground or into the sewer.
