The Benefits of Powerwashing Your Home in the San Francisco Bay Area

Clients often ask me about the benefits and necessity of powerwashing their homes, especially in relation to our exterior house painting services. Your home’s exterior is exposed to the elements constantly; wind, rain, pollen, dust, soot, mold and more. Over time this can mar your home and drive its value down. Powerwashing can help slow this damage. There are several benefits a good powerwash can bring to your home, and preserve and display any painting work we may have provided!

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. A thorough powerwashing of your home is an investment in its preventative maintenance and care. Washing away scratchy and potentially damaging particles of dirt and grime now can save you money in costly repair work down the road. Just as you schedule routine maintenance work for your car of even seasonal flu shots for yourself and your family, a comprehensive powerwash should be part of your home’s yearly checkup. Annual, detailed powerwashing ensures that your home is in the very best condition it can be.

A hazy film of pollen, dust and muck can obscure your home’s beautiful face. A careful powerashing gets rid of any staining or mildew that might have occurred. This greatly enhances your home’s curb appeal and leaves it with a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. Often an area that might have seemed discolored from rain or rust can be greatly improved by a cleansing powerwash. This too can offer you savings. Brick walkways and stonework can be powerwashed as well, removing any mossy growth. That’s not just unsightly – it can be very dangerous!

When powerwashing, you want to be careful with the exterior fixtures on your home and protect them from the strong pressure of the water. Covering any lights and delicate landscaping is a must. Sometimes it is helpful to manually scrub any areas of mildew or staining with a brush to help loosen it up a bit before beginning. Of course you want to make sure that all the windows are closed tight and it is a good idea to go through your home after the wash, to ensure that no water has gotten inside. And don’t forget those shutters! The shutters are a favorite hiding spot for spiders and there is bound to be a lot of webbing and even egg sacs behind them.

Your home is an enormous investment. By removing damaging grime and grit with a thorough powerwashing periodically, you can protect your home from damage and keep it looking like new!

Customer Reviews

“Today I received a beautiful bouquet from your company. It was totally unexpected and very much appreciated--a lovely surprise. Also today, your crew finished my job. I am so pleased with all their fine work. Richard is absolutely amazing and a total delight to work with. He was also extremely helpful during the paint color process. The interior work in my home far exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to you and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you, thank you for a terrific job!”

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walk through experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3 year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch up items that will show up after the job is done.”

— Joshua Jansen

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“I highly recommend MB Jesse Painting to anyone looking for a professional team that does an impressive job. They are on time, efficient and clean up well each and every day they are on site. They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

— Erin Troy

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”
