Pressure Wash Your House Exterior Before Painting

What You Need To Know About Power Washing Your House

Power washing, also known as pressure washing, is one of the leading methods of cleaning the outside of a home. A power washer uses a high-powered stream of water to remove dirt and grime from the siding or bricks of a home. Because of the ease in how the power washer is used, the job can typically be completed in one visit. However, the effects and results always leave customers shocked that power washing can make a home look like new. 

 

When is it Best to Power Wash a Home?

Sometimes it can be hard to know when it’s time to power wash a home, and how often it should be done. However, one of the most common questions we hear is about what the signs are that a home needs to be power washed. 

One of the best things we tell our customers is to take a look at the home on a mild to a sunny day and see if it has the luster that it once did. If the answer is “no,” then having a proper power washing of the home will be the best thing to do. 

Picking a time of the year that the home will have a good chance of having 24-hours to dry before any rain or storms come through is ideal. However, it’s not in any way “ruined” or less effective if, after the power washing, there are natural weather occurrences. Either way, the power washing will remove the dirt and grime and give you back an impressive, great looking home. 

 

How Often Should You Power Wash Your Home? 

Another common question that we hear is regarding how often a home should be power washed, and if there can be “too much.” Both are excellent questions and can easily be answered and explained. 

 

Does My Home Need Power Washing?

One of the best ways that a homeowner can tell if power washing is needed is by running their finger along with the siding or brick. If dirt and grime get built up and you can see the line your finger ran along, this is a good indicator that a “scrub down” with a power washer would be beneficial. 

All in all, it’s pretty hard to “overwash” a home. Having a trusted company come and have a look to ensure a power wash would be a good solution for your home is the best thing a homeowner can do. 

 

Power Washing Depends on Where You Live

It all comes down to where your home is located and the natural weather and wind patterns. Although it is not specific, and everyone will be different in the needs of their home, the location the house is located will heavily depend on how often a home needs to be power washed. Working with a company that is knowledgeable with the specific area you’re in is the best thing you as a homeowner can do.
