Residential Pressure Washing Helps Improve A Home’s Exterior

Residential pressure washing is a process in which a high-pressure water dispensing system and hose are used to clean various exterior surfaces around your property. This is a popular and effective method for removing dirt, grime, mold, algae, grease, and other types of debris from surfaces that have become dirty or discolored. You can learn about some of the features and advantages of residential pressure washing in this article. 

Cleaning solutions offer enhanced cleaning

In some cases, pressure washing is done by adding cleaning solutions to the system that offer enhanced cleaning for stubborn stains. This is commonly done when cleaning areas like the driveway or the siding of the house. A solution can also be added to the system that helps prevent stains from returning in the near future. 

Many types of surfaces can be cleaned

Pressure washing is a great way to clean the exterior of a home because one visit can result in so many surfaces being cleaned. After the pressure washing has been done, it can noticeably improve your home's curb appeal. Some examples of surfaces commonly cleaned with pressure washing include: 

  • Exterior walls of many types like vinyl, wood, brick, stucco, etc.

  • Fences, gates, and railings

  • Decks, balconies, patios, porches, and other outdoor seating areas

  • Driveways, sidewalks, and even stepping stones

  • Roofs and canopies

  • Outdoor furniture

  • Barbecues and grills

  • Outdoor kids' toys, including playhouses and swing sets

Advantages of pressure washing 

  • Give surfaces a fresh look: When surfaces get dusty, dirty, and covered in other debris, they can look dull and neglected. After they've been pressure washed, they'll look fresh and even new in many cases. 
  • Help prevent damage: When some surfaces are covered in mold, grease, or other debris, they can end up being damaged. An example of this can be seen in driveways that can develop potholes when grease is left on them that softens the asphalt. When pressure washing cleans these surfaces, it can prevent such damage. 
  • Prepare the surfaces for painting: Dirty surfaces shouldn't be painted because the paint won't adhere correctly. Pressure washing is a great way to efficiently clean and prepare surfaces prior to painting, staining, or sealing them. 
  • Increase the property value: Pressure washing is a quick and easy way to improve the look of the home, the exterior surfaces, outbuildings, and more. This can improve the look of the home and property so much that it helps increase the home's value.
