If you find yourself making lists of things that need to be done around the house, ask yourself this: why keep it inside? Just like any other standard housekeeping, pressure washing should be completed on that checklist. Generally speaking, we recommend having your house pressure washed once a year. However, there may be specific areas such as your deck, roof or gutters that may need it more frequently. Sound overwhelming? Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Here are a few things to consider to decide how often your home should be pressure washed:
Your area’s natural climate. Maybe you live in a wet, humid environment. Maybe your property is full of lush trees, or perhaps your zip code is prone to dust storms. All of these things are factors that may mean your house needs more frequent pressure washing. Contaminants like mold and mildew can grow much more rapidly in homes with large tree overhands or in wet and humid climates.
You and your family’s health. The people living in your home are always top priority, and you want to make sure you are taking the correct steps to protect their wellness. Left untouched, your home has the potential to foster the growth of harmful substances such as mold and algae. Breathing in these materials can become hazardous to health over time. Regularly scheduled, preventative pressure washing can ensure that these contaminants can’t hurt you or your family!
Your planned home improvement. Do you have big dreams of painting or refinishing various spots in your home’s exterior? Then pressure washing can help! Consider having your home cleaned prior to any of these projects to prepare the surface of your house. Pressure washing before you paint will make sure that your paint adheres better to your home and lasts much longer.
Your personal satisfaction. Do you like the way your home looks? If you don’t feel like its current appearance is as beautiful as it could be, the easy decision to pressure wash it more frequently can help. You work hard to be a homeowner, and there’s nothing wrong with wanting it to look its best!
In general, we recommend pressure washing your home each year prior to starting any other home maintenance projects. Not only will your home look beautiful all year long, but you will also have a healthy environment for you and those you love.
