You may have noticed your home starting to look is older, dingy or just plain dirty. Many people don’t realize that just a single pressure washing treatment could change your whole opinion entirely. We can take the dingy and dirty and clean it up and make it look like brand new! There are several ways to determine whether professional pressure washing is the right solution for you.
If you have dark stains in your driveway, you might think that the y are just a part of life and there is nothing you can do about it. The good news is that professional power washing can remove ALL organic stains like dirt, mold and mildew and can help in removing man made stains like oil, tire marks and transmission fluid.
This same idea applies to patios, sidewalks and walkways – except hopefully there isn’t any automotive fluid there! This is important if you have hosted a few outdoor dinners or if you regularly barbecue outside. Oils and drippings from cooking meats can have an impact on how these surfaces look and can become a slip hazard if not cleaned properly. Consider what heppens after you walk on hamburger grease and then go inside your house – not something you really want to think about I’m sure!
You also want to think about how well your siding is looking and holding up. There are many different kinds of materials used in siding – some are great, some are not so great. Vinyl siding will generally last just about forever if you keep it clean but is prone oxidizing over time, especially of it’s in direct sunlight. Hardi-plank siding is a really durable product and will also last just about forever is cleaned periodically. Wood siding and trim is generally where we see issues where the wood rots if it is not maintained properly with annual cleanings.
Our house washing treatments are incredibly effective for cleaning mold, mildew, lichen and moss. If you have a problem with twigs, leaves and other materials clogging your gutters and downspouts, we recommend hiring a gutter cleaning service as well so that you don’t end up with the gutters overflowing and causing more mold and mildew. A little preventative maintenance can really go a long ways in maintaining the exterior of your home!
