Avoid Annoying HOA Violation Letters
Living in an HOA has its benefits but their rules can be difficult to navigate. They demand perfection when it comes to the appearance of your home. Your grass has to be greener, you can’t have certain trees or shrubs in your yard, your front yard must be trimmed. The cleanliness of your home’s exterior is also under scrutiny. HOAs exist to improve and preserve the community’s property value. While this is generally a good thing, it can be a huge pain to manage the stains on your home. Regulation focal points include your home’s siding, driveway, and roof. This article will inform you about different cleaning methods and help you avoid those pesky violation letters.
Clean Your Siding
One of the most common siding HOA violations is the presence of unsightly mold, mildew, or algae. These organisms thrive where moisture is present. Over time, shaded parts of your home will become stained. For lighter stains, you can use simple household materials; 70% water mixed with 30% white vinegar along with some elbow grease. Those tougher stains require more care and better equipment. When dealing with more serious stains or even moss you need to be cautious. When vinegar and water won’t due you need something more powerful. But tackling this task alone can be harmful. A lack of experience will lead to a damaged home or serious injury. Professional pressure washing companies take every factor into account; the stain severity, siding material, and surrounding surfaces. Washh understands that your home is very important to you, which is why we provide services that keep you and your home’s safety in mind.
Raise the Roof
What is the hardest part of removing stains from your roof? The ground after you fall, which is why we recommend you hire the professionals to clean your roof. All joking aside, we strongly suggest you call the experts and avoid serious injury.
You may notice black streaks forming on your roof, well so does your HOA. This is yet another violation that can be easily avoided. Similar to your home’s siding, mildew and algae grows on the shingles that are exposed to moisture for longer periods of time. (That is why you see clean streaks below vents on your roof.) There are DIY instructions out there on roof cleaning but without the proper equipment and training you may run into issues. Read this article on Roof Cleaning to learn more about its benefits.
Parking Lot Problems
Your driveway is constantly being used. You leave for work in the morning, park in the driveway at night, friends park there when you have people over; I could go on. After a while you may notice the concrete getting more and more filthy, whether it be from dirt, tire marks, or even oil stains. Neglecting to clean your driveway will lead to an HOA violation letter in no time. As stated in a previous paragraph, you can use household products to clean lighter stains from your home’s surfaces, this includes your driveway. Mixing about 3oz of washing soda per gallon of water makes for a great washing solution. After applying, scrub the pavement with a deck brush and the dirt should rinse away. For those more difficult stains, the power of a pressure washer will turn your driveway into its original shade.
