House washing: 3 Reasons Why You Need It

Your home is where you spend your best times with your family. Keeping the house exterior clean is important and healthy. Consider house washing regularly as part of your maintenance routine. Here are solid reasons why cleaning your house is important.

House washing: 3 Reasons Why You Need It

1. Prevents damage
The exterior of your house is exposed to the elements such as wind, snow, and rain that lead to build-up of grime over time. This grime eventually turns into mold, stains, and mildew. It is unsightly and dangerous as it causes serious damage to your painted walls and concrete coatings. The damage can be permanent if nothing is done because the mold will remove the paint. Harmful mildew will also continue thriving while dirt and algae accumulate in the crevices.

2. Enhances curb appeal
Power washing your house will get rid of dirt, stains, mildew, mold, and bird droppings. Every part of your exterior including the siding, deck, fence, and driveway will be as good as new. Washing restores your house and gives it a fresh look without spending on renovations.

3. Increases your home value
Nothing is more striking than a clean and well-maintained place. When you wash your house, this is what happens. You replace the discoloration and degrading with a fresh appearance that is good to look at. If you intend to sell your home at some point, house washing will increase its value. You may be able to sell quickly because of the proper care you accord it which will also make it more attractive.

House washing is important to you and your family. Consider doing it every two years (as recommended) to ensure a clean environment and to increase its aesthetic value.

4 Reasons to Have Your House Power Washed After Winter

It’s been a long, cold winter. Spring is starting to show itself in warmer temperatures and new growth on trees and flowers. It’s time to take stock of your home’s condition and get ready for the year ahead. When you’re planning your spring cleaning, don’t forget to look at your home from the outside – your brick and siding, driveways and pavers, decks and patios. Freshening up these areas after each winter can instantly transform the look of your house and increase your enjoyment of your outdoor areas during the spring and summer. Additionally, routine maintenance of these outside areas can prevent more costly repairs and replacements later. Here are four reasons you should call Pearl Power Washing to get started on a post-winter clean up today!

4 Reasons to Have Your House Power Washed After Winter

  1. IT REDUCES ALLERGENS. As much as we might love the warmer weather that spring brings, we don’t love mold and mildew. Grime and dirt on your exterior surfaces creates the perfect incubator for mold and mildew to thrive. A good cleaning after winter can minimize allergy-inducing spores and help you and your family breath easily while enjoying the beautiful weather. It will also reduce the allergen level inside your home, as you won’t be tracking them in every time you come and go.
  2. IT CAN PREVENT BIGGER PROBLEMS. What may start as discoloration on your outdoor surfaces can lead to permanent staining that’s far more difficulty and costly to get rid of. If you’ve used sand, salt, or other de-icing compounds on your driveways and walkways, leaving them on the surfaces too long can actually damage concrete and decks. A good clean up after winter can help minimize future problems.
  3. IT PREPARES SURFACES FOR WORK. If you want to seal your pavement, re-stain a deck, or paint your siding, power washing is the best way to prep the work surface. A clean surface allows better adhesion for any treatment. It also ensures that you’re not simply trapping dirt, grime or mold underneath, which will cause that great new finish to degrade more quickly or separate entirely from the affected areas. Think of Pearl Power Washing as your partner in home improvement.
  4. IT HELPS MAINTAIN YOUR HOME’S VALUE. Spring and summer are when the real estate market is hottest. If you’re planning to list your home, power washing can actually increase it’s value. A clean exterior improves the buyer’s perception of your home and allows its features to shine through. Even if you’re not planning to sell soon, routine power washing – as part of your annual maintenance – helps maintain the value of your home over time. It keeps the dirt and debris from causing or masking other problems.
