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

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“High quality work from a pleasant and qualified staff. Thank you!”

— Paul Markovich

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

— Carla Banks

“In all the years I've worked with MB Jessee, I'm always so impressed by your crews. They are so respectful of everything--you never even know they're there! Except that the paint looks amazing when they're gone. We've had one showing of our home and already have an offer. I'm sure it is because the paint looks so beautiful.”

“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!”

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“I can't say enough about how courteous and professional my foreman was. He was on time every morning and arrived cheerful and ready to go. He is highly organized and very thoughtful. He was extremely careful and respectful when moving my belongings - a mature professional.”
