Power washing your property in the summer is ideal, here are 5 reasons why!

Power washing or soft washing is the most effective and efficient way to clean your home’s exterior and safeguard your investment, save your time, and protect your family’s health.

Your home’s exterior is exposed to harsh elements all the time.  Natural conditions like sun, wind, dirt, ultraviolet rays, insects, birds –  not to mention things like acid rain, smoke, pollutants and car exhaust – constantly give your home a beating and contribute to its soiling, discoloration, and damage.

As Fredericksburg’s leader in power washing and making homes pristine, we want to share our top 5 reasons why you should powerwash your home this summer!

  1. Moisture Damage
    Moisture during the winter can cause serious damage and stains to your home’s exterior surfaces. If you allow the grime to stay on your surfaces, or stains to sit for long periods of time, permanent damage can result. Mold can damage painted surfaces and concrete coatings like cool concrete if left unchecked for long periods of time. Mold actually feeds on the paint and finishes, thereby removing them.Crevices are especially susceptible to the accumulation of dirt, algae, and grime, while mildew and mold thrive in shaded areas and can grow unchecked for years if not properly taken care of.
  2. Remove Bacteria & Allergens
    Power washing protects your family’s health. All the dirt, grime, and mildew that accumulates on your home’s exterior surfaces can be dangerous. Removing them yearly with a pressure washing helps keep you and your pets from getting sick.More than 20 million adults and 6 million children suffer from seasonal allergies in the U.S. According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI). Some of the most common allergic triggers are pollen, mold spores and dust mites, all of which are washed away by power washing.Power washing the exterior can reduce the amount of allergens in and around your home, and reduce the time your family spends coughing, sneezing and with watery eyes. Our soap solution removes allergens, kills algae and fungus, and protects against harmful bacteria.
  3. Restore Original Beauty
    Restore curb appeal and increase your homes value. If you’re looking to sell, power washing could be the difference between making a sale and not. Exteriors degrade, discolor, and oxidize as time passes. Because of this, your property can lose value. Power washing helps a paint job look fresh and helps your home look new. Obviously, a good-looking, sparkling clean house is much easier to rent or sell.

    According to Consumer Reports, a good pressure washing along with needed paint touch-ups and exterior enhancements can help increase the value of your home by as much as 2-5%.Pressure washing is a restorative process. Your house gets a makeover without you having to spend a lot of money on renovations. By removing years of stains and baked-in dirt, power washing refreshes your house’s look and turns years back on the clock to help your home look new. It doesn’t make sense to spend money on landscaping and decorations if your home’s exterior is not part of the effort. No matter the surface, power washing your home is the best way to get rid of mold, mildew and stains on your home’s siding, driveway, deck, and fencing. A fresh look is a great way to feel pride in your home and is a way to contribute to your neighborhood’s community.
  4. Save You Time!
    It will save you time. Pressure washing is simply the most efficient way to clean your home’s exterior. Your time is valuable, so efficiency is key when it comes to cleaning.

  5. Prevent Other Costly Maintenance
    Preventative maintenance saves money!
    Your house is an investment that needs to be protected. The price of any sort of maintenance in addition to a mortgage and other bills can seem hefty if you don’t think of it as necessary maintenance that safeguards your initial investment and saves you a lot of money down the road. A little preventative maintenance can go a long way towards keeping your property’s value and avoiding costly repairs. By making pressure washing a part of your consistent maintenance routine, you can take years off of an older home and keep it looking new for years to come. It’s also the most cost-efficient way to wash your entire exterior.Plus, power washing your property or soft washing is actually a lot less expensive than refinishing or repainting. If you are repainting, however, power washing is a critical first step for getting your house ready.
