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!
