Late Summer Pressure Washing

End of Summer Pressure Washing

Summer is coming to a close and it’s time to consider a deep cleaning. Pressure washing is key to keeping your home and surroundings in tip-top shape. Here are some items to put on your fall to-do list.

Home Exterior Pressure Washing

The exterior of your home is a prime spot for contaminants to collect. Dirt, dust, pollution, mold, algae, and other debris can affect your home’s appearance. A soft washing will spruce up exterior surfaces such as your roof, siding, and bricks. An annual power washing will remove stubborn dirt so it doesn’t build up over time.

Pressure Washing Decks and Patios

Decks and patios that are clean boost curb appeal. Many homeowners assume fading or color changes are inevitable. However, a good power washing can make these areas look brand new. While you’re at it, wash down the outdoor furniture and get it ready for winter storage. 

Pressure Washing Driveways, Sidewalks, and Concrete Surfaces

Concrete can get filthy from oil, grime, and dirt. Power washing can remove these contaminants and chewing gum, too. It can also get rid of mold growth from moisture that gets trapped inside cracks, cement blocks, or pavers. Power washing can also clean away rust stains caused by oxide that appear on concrete. 

Fence Pressure Washing

A good scrubbing of your fence with a pressure washer can make it look good as new. It will eliminate the dirt, dust, and grime from the environment that can build up over time. Wood and vinyl fences can both be pressure washed. However, the pressure could remove paint, so you may need to repaint the fence.

Pressure Washing Brickwork

Bricks can be pressure washed, but it is a delicate process. Brick cannot tolerate high pressure so a lower pressure setting must be used. Damage can occur if the water comes out too strong. 

Bricks are porous and can absorb stains. Pressure washing will remove surface dirt, but not anything deep inside. If your brickwork is very dirty, it’s best to hire a professional to deep clean it. Dirty brickwork can also discolor and stain your home.  

Pressure Washing Outdoor Furniture

If soap and water don’t do the trick, outdoor furniture can be pressure washed. Take note of the material the furniture is made of and make sure the pressure washer is set properly. Cushions made of synthetic materials can also be washed on a low setting. Avoid power washing delicate surfaces like glass tables, mirrors, marble, or stone surfaces. Children’s outdoor toys can also be pressure washed.

What Not to Pressure Wash

There are some things around your home that are not fit for power washing. These include automobiles, windows, aluminum, and gutters. Also be careful with decking made from composite materials or that has been painted with stain. Stucco, painted, or brick siding is also delicate and is best left to the professionals.
