When you have decided that it’s time to pressure wash your home, you have most likely come to this conclusion because your siding is looking dirty and dingy. And we couldn’t agree more especially because pressure washing isn’t just a great way to give your home a beautiful shine but also because it is a great way to help protect your paint job while also removing dirt, mold, and mildew. And because of those, you may be thinking that you should pressure wash your home every week, but pressure washing too often can lead to damage to your paint and siding. On the flip side neglecting to pressure wash your home can lead to long-term deterioration from multiple environmental factors.
So you don’t want to power wash your home too often but you also don’t want to put it off either. As a pressure washing company, it would be easy to say to pressure wash your home as often as you can, however, getting these services too often can actually cause damage to your home. So how often should you have pressure washing services?
When to Pressure Wash Your Home
The first thing you should know when determining how often you should have pressure washing services is the ideal time to have these services.
As a Part of Routine Maintenance
The best way to take care of your house’s exterior is by treating pressure washing as part of your home’s maintenance routine. We recommend that you pressure wash your home every 6 to 12 months or one to two times a year. Power washing your house on a regular basis will help to prevent the build up of mold and mildew on your home’s surface while also helping to maintain a pristine appearance
However there are a few conditions and instances where you may need to have pressure washing services more than one or two times a year, so let’s break down some of the reasons why you may need to pressure wash your home more often.
Prepping for a New Coat of Paint
If you are getting ready to paint your home, pressure washing will help to rid your home of peeling and chipping paint. This helps the new coat of paint stick better to the surface. While most homeowners can go five to seven years without repainting their home you still want to pressure wash your home’s exterior each year. But if you are looking to hire someone to paint your home it is important for you to hire a team to pressure wash the exterior first.
Getting Ready to Sell
Another great time for pressure washing services is when you are getting ready to put your home on the market. While we have always heard you should never judge a book by its cover, curb appeal is a major deciding factor for people looking to buy a new home. Of course, right before your home goes on the market isn’t the only time to pressure wash your home but if there is ever a time for these services it is when you are getting ready to sell.
After Bad Weather
Inclement weather can take a toll on your home as winds whip dirt and other debris around or strong snow storms send mositure dripping down the side of your home. If you have had particularly bad weather you might want to consider pressure washing your home. Doing this will not only help to remove dirt and debris from your home but also help you determine if there is any damage to the exterior of your home too.
When the Conditions Call for It
When it comes to pressure washing there are certain conditions that you want before you can begin the services. From your family’s health to the weather there are a lot of factors you need to take into account before pressure washing your home.
Trust the Professionals to Pressure Wash Your Home
When it comes to pressure washing services you may be thinking that you can rent a pressure washer or purchase one and handle the task on your own. However, there are a lot of components that go into the pressure washing process. From knowing what nozzle to use and the amount of pressure that is safe for your surface, to knowing how to mix the perfect chemical solution to ensure your home is cleaned properly. All of these components are vital to pressure wash your home correctly.
