It’s spring time, and powerwashing the exterior surfaces around your property should also be included in your annual spring cleaning routing. Dirt and grime left behind from winter snowfalls, fallen leaves and debris from spring rains, and the pollution and pollen in the air during this time of year will create a combination of contamination on all your exterior surfaces.
Before the bright and sunny day of summer arrive, here are a list of must-do outdoor pressure washing projects to maintain your home’s value and your family’s health. Removing these surface contaminants from your home will also help prevent or reduce wood rot, decay, and signs of premature aging.
Pressure Wash your House and Garage
As a homeowner, it’s easy to see the dirt and grime on the exterior of your home’s windows. You may not notice this same built-up grime on your home’s wood, vinyl, or other siding – but it’s there. Pressure washing your house and garage exterior will leave a clean and fresh appearance, that for many homeowners saved them the costs of painting.
Often, rain will mix with the pollutants in the air and on your home’s roof, and leave streaks of dirt traveling down the sides of your home. The only way to restore your home’s beauty and boost curb appeal is to remove that dingy, dirty, and moldy layer on exterior surfaces. The beauty of professional pressure washing services is that you get both your exterior windows and siding cleaned with one powerful system.
Powerwashing your Driveway and Sidewalks
Concrete and asphalt surfaces such as driveways and sidewalks will collect oils, grease, dropped food, and spilled liquids throughout the year. Everything that is dropped or leaked onto your driveway and sidewalks are exacerbated by foot traffic and vehicles rolling on top of these surfaces – causing dirt, grease, grime, and food to become impacted into the tiny crevices of the top layers.
Partner with a pressure washing services that will use the heated cleaning solution of a powerwashing system to strip away hard–to-remove stains and dirt from concrete and asphalt surfaces.
Washing Your Deck and Patios
Patios and decks can have an overwhelming amount of gunk due to cookouts, eating, and drinking in these areas. Depending on what material your deck and patio are constructed of will determine the pressure and the type of cleaning that should be performed. It is best to use pressure washer set at the appropriate pressure with a fan tip or rotating tip to prevent damage to deck boards or stone pavers.
But, when it comes to wooden decks and stone-paved patios, this is a cleaning job that is best left to your local pressure washing services that can protect your property while guaranteeing exceptional cleaning.
Hose Down Your Outdoor Furniture
Finally, after you set out your outdoor furniture for the season, give it good hose down with water. If you didn’t clean your outdoor furniture before storage, then pressure wash the furniture with a low setting and a wide spray nozzle to make sure that the flow of water is powerful enough to loosen soil and dirt without damaging the furniture.
