What Are the Benefits of Power Washing Your Bay Area Home?

Imagine, just for a moment, that after it rains your car looks like it just visited a professional detailing shop. There’s not a sign of a streak, every bit of dust is gone, and only a deep, glassy shine is left behind.

Wouldn’t that be nice?

In reality, we all know that keeping a car clean requires careful, skilled work, and just the right products for each aspect of the process.

The same is really true for your home. And, just like a purposeful washing refreshes and protects your car, it also offers tangible benefits for your property’s exterior surfaces as well.

What Can Professional Power Washing Offer Your Home?

  • A Longer Life for Your Paint - We talked recently about the keys to lasting exterior paint here in the Bay Area. Power washing really deserves a place on that list as well! It’s a relatively simple way to wash away dirt, mold, mildew, and other pollutants that obscure and damage your home’s paint and stain. If you live in a coastal home, corrosive salt residue is also important to proactively remove.
  • A Beautiful Shine - As you can see in the photo above, power washing can uncover healthy, beautiful surfaces.
  • Versatile Applications - In addition to your siding, power washing your deck, patio, walkways, and poolside areas is important too. Not only will these spaces look better, but it also restores traction to walking areas that get slick over time, and can sanitize outdoor kitchen spaces too.

Should You Hire a Professional to Power Wash Your Home?

We recommend it!

Power washing units are readily available to buy or rent, but they are unfortunately often used without the essential knowledge and experience. This not only makes the washing less effective, but it also can be dangerous to you and your home. The intense, powerful stream can certainly harm you, but it also, when improperly used, can damage the surface you’re washing. Many homeowners also spray up under their eaves and too tightly around windows, opening up the risk of water working its way inside.

Customer Reviews

“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 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.”

— Nora Robinson

“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”

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“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.”

— Richard

“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

“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job. He was very attentive to any changes I needed to make, was extremely careful in getting the faux paint color and effect correct. Thanks so much for a job well done.”

— Suzan D’Arcy

“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

“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

“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.”

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
