Winter will be over in just a few days, but it’s mark will be left on our homes and properties, which is why you should pressure wash your house after winter. Decks, fences, sidewalks, and siding are just a few of the structures that will be marred by a combination of dark streaks, white spots, road residue, and even mold patches. It’s not a pretty sight, but it doesn’t need to be a permanent one. By hiring a professional power washing service, you’ll rid your home of layers of built-up dirt and grime, resulting in a sparkling clean look. Here are four reasons why spring is the perfect time for pressure washing.
It’s Wonderful Weather
By pressure washing in the spring, you avoid some of the potential problems of other seasons. Many winter days are too cold for cleaning home exteriors, and the limited daylight reduces the amount time there is to work with. Some summer days are so hot that surfaces begin to dry before the washing is complete. The falling leaves of autumn are a major source of stains, and there’s always a risk that late-dropping debris will dirty up a freshly washed surface. In contrast, spring’s sunny and mild weather offers optimal opportunities for house cleaning.
It Prevents Damage
Pressure washing not only makes a home look beautiful, it also extends the life of a property. Winter’s dirt and grime often leaves streaks and dark spots on exterior walls and retaining walls, while salt and chemical residue stains driveways, sidewalks, and decks. That residue also can damage some surfaces, and it presents a health hazard for pets and wildlife that walk on it. A spring pressure washing removes that dirt and debris before it can cause any permanent damage or staining.
A Healthier Home
Having a shiny clean home will make you feel better, but it can also make you healthier. Many exterior surfaces attract mold and mildew, especially after a wet, mild winter. These fungi present allergy and health concerns for many individuals, and they’ll only continue to spread if left unattended. Furthermore, pollen is a major problem for allergy sufferers each spring, and pressure washing eliminates it and other allergens from outdoor living spaces.
It Saves Time
We all want our homes to look fantastic, and pressure washing does that quickly. There’s no scrubbing, climbing ladders, or crawling around on your hands and knees. And with a professional power washing service, you’ll further save time by not having to rent or buy a pressure washer, mix cleaning chemicals, or learn how to operate the equipment. Homeowners love the maximum cleaning with minimum effort.
