When it is time to sell your home, you want to maximize the amount of money you get for the home. Taking the time to thoroughly clean your home and complete maintenance prior to listing your home can help you to maximize the value of your home with very little out-of-pocket expenses. One of the best ways that you can increase the curb appeal of your home and get it ready for showings is to pressure wash your exterior surfaces. Here are just some of the surfaces you can have pressure washed prior to listing your home.
The Concrete Surfaces
You have many concrete surfaces around your home, including driveways, walkways, patios and pool surrounds. These items can get dirty in a number of different ways. They get dirty as they are exposed to dirt and soil outside. They become dirty as items drip on them, such as oil and fluids from your car or popsicles that your children are eating. Lastly, as you walk on them, they become dirty. Concrete is typically light gray in color, but as it ages, it starts to darken. When concrete is pressure washed, the stains are lifted and removed, making the concrete look lighter once again.
The Exterior of Your Home
The exterior of your home is exposed to outdoor elements constantly, including weather elements, dirt, and pests. Everything from dirty rain to wind storms kicking up dust to bird droppings can be sitting on the exterior of your home. Prior to putting your home up for sale, you may be thinking about painting the exterior of your home to help make the color more vibrant and lively. Unfortunately though, painting your home can be costly. Prior to investing in new paint, take the time to have the exterior of your home power washed. Once all of the dirt and dust that is caked on the exterior of your home is removed, you may be shocked to see just how great your home looks and that painting is not needed.
There are different types of fencing that may be up around your home, including wood, vinyl and iron ornamental fencing. Fencing can begin to look dirty, faded and even become covered in algae or mildew. Most people assume that this is simply par for the course with fencing and part of the aging process. However, pressure washing your various fencing materials can help to revive the look of the fencing and make it look younger again. This can help to increase curb appeal as you look to sell your home.
Pressure washing can clean up many of the surfaces around your home, making them look nearly as good as new. Pressure washing, also referred to as power washing, can be time-consuming and needs to be done correctly, or you run the risk of damaging a surface.
