A professional power washing is a sure way to boost the overall appearance of your home. To make your pressure washing experience as easy and safe as possible, there are a few simple things you’ll want to do to prepare your home before breaking out the tools. If you follow these tips, you’ll be one step closer to enjoying your newly squeaky-clean outdoor space. Here’s how to prepare your home for a power washing.
Secure All Doors and Windows
Any opening of your home should be completely secured before a power washing. While we won’t be aiming our pressure washers directly at your windows, moisture is still certain to enter if your windows aren’t completely shut. To guarantee your windows and doors are completely shut, you can simply lock them and confirm you are unable to open them afterwards. Don’t forget to shut garage doors, storm doors and screen doors as well!
Move or Cover Anything You Want to Keep Dry
You should be sure to cover or move anything you’d prefer to keep dry during a power washing. If important items are left out, getting wet is only part of the problem. There is also a chance that dirty debris will end up resting on your treasured items. If you need a hand moving anything, we are glad to assist. Finally, be sure to cover any outdoor electrical sockets or notify your technician of their locations so they can plan to avoid them.
Keeping the Area Clear
Naturally, a clear workspace will create the safest work environment possible for you or the professional you hired to pressure wash your home. Naturally, relocating any cars from the driveway to a separate location is a good first step. We also recommend keeping any pets or young children inside during a pressure washing because accidents can happen! Keeping them indoors or in a designated area will keep your technician and your loved ones safe.
If you follow these simple steps, you’ll have done all your can to prepare your home for your next power washing!
