When Is the Best Time to Pressure Wash a House?
What is soft washing?
- As part of your maintenance routine
Cleaning the exterior of your home is the best way to take care of your home. Pressure washing should therefore be a part of your regular maintenance routine. Experts recommend that you clean your every 6 to 12 months (that is once or twice a year). Cleaning on a regular basis will help to protect your home from damage caused by mold and mildew. It will also help to prevent dirt and grime from accumulating on surfaces. Your home will look bright and new without the need to invest in a paint job.
- After bad weather
When bad weather such as a storm strikes your home, it carries debris and dirt with it. If you allow debris, dirt and moisture to remain on the surface of your home, you will soon experience issues such as rot as well as the growth of mold and mildew. Your home will probably also look like the setting of a horror movie if you leave it as it is. Cleaning is recommended shortly after bad weather strikes. This will not only freshen your home but minimize any long-term damage.
- Preparing to repaint your home
Planning to give your home a fresh coat of paint? Preparing the surface you want to paint is one of the most important steps in painting. Pressure cleaning is an effective way of doing this. The high pressure will help to remove old, chipping and peeling paint. It will remove dirt and grime and thus ensure that the paint sticks better to the surface. Your paint job will not only look better but also last longer.
- When you put your house on the market
Are you planning to sell your home? Curb appeal contributes a great deal to the value of your home. A home with good curb appeal will also be easier to sell. It is therefore important to present your home in the best light. A good clean will be an investment in your home that will be paid back when you sell it at a great price.
What time of the year is best to pressure wash your house?
If you’re planning to include a power wash as part of your routine maintenance, you may be wondering when you should schedule a clean for. The best time for this is in late spring. The weather during the latter part of spring is more temperate. The days aren’t too hot and there is little to no rain in most parts. This time of year is also great because dust and pollen have settled down. You’ll see better results and avoid costly damage by washing your home at this time of year.
How much does it cost to pressure wash a house?
If you’re like many homeowners, one of the first things that crosses your mind when you think of hiring pressure washing services is how much it would cost. The pressure washing cost for different homes varies based on the following factors:
- The location of the house
- The size of the house
- The type of siding you have on your house
- The condition of the exterior surfaces (i.e. how dirty the house is and if there is any extra work that needs to be done prior to the actual washing)
- The service you choose
- The time of year
Depending on your circumstances, a professional clean can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to just below a thousand dollars for the average home. This is a lot cheaper than trying to do it yourself. You will not only have to invest in the equipment required but also the cleaning solutions. Professionals use special cleaning solutions and methods to avoid damaging surfaces. They also adhere to strict safety standards to ensure the safety of their team as well as that of your household during the cleaning process. You are therefore much better off going with a professional service than trying to do it yourself.
