How to Protect Your Plants when Pressure Washing Your Nashville Home

Plant spruce up the entire look of your home, and can easily upgrade your curb appeal. That’s why it’s important to protect them when having your Nashville home pressure washed.

Professional pressure washing companies use a precise chemical solution to kill the unwanted intruders on your home. These chemicals combined with the pressure of the water will completely eliminate algae, mold, and dirt. However, as wonderful as our cleaning agents are for your home’s siding, it may not be so beneficial to your plants. Any chemicals used on your middle Tennessee house can have harmful affects on plants if they aren’t used responsibly, which is why it is important to use a company you know you can trust. Whether you are tackling a DIY project or hiring a professional, it’s always a good idea to make sure the following measures are being taken to protect your greenery.

First off, water! It’s no secret that plants need water to survive, but they will need some extra water before your pressure washing starts. This is because dry plants will soak up all the liquid available to them, which can unfortunately include soap. Make sure that all of your plants are well watered and happy before cleaning day!

Now that your plants are healthy and fed, you might want to consider redirecting the water flow away from your plants during the pressure washing. This can be done with hoses or other common equipment! Keep in mind that no matter where the water ends up, chemicals can be harmful to any plants exposed to them. That’s why the next step is just as important as anything else.

After your pressure washing project is complete, you will also want to make sure that your plants are rinsed off thoroughly with clean water. This will ensure that any soapy chemicals that may have slipped onto their surfaces are removed! Think of this step as an extra insurance policy to cover your tracks.
