When it comes to exterior home maintenance, most people focus on lawn care, landscaping, and keeping their yards clutter-free. Many forget to look up at their actual home exterior to consider the impact of dirt, grime, and pollution build-up on their roofs, siding, windows, and walkways.
While it is an easy house cleaning task to ignore, there are plenty of reasons why homeowners shouldn’t skip pressure washing their homes.
Most of us have driven through neighborhoods and noticed dirt, moss, and sometimes even mold growing on siding and brick. The difference between clean siding and siding covered with all manner of particles is easy to spot in any neighborhood. Driveways covered in dirt, oil, and grease have the same impact on the appearance of a front yard as a dirty carpet has on the interior of a house.
These seemingly minor appearance issues hurt the way neighbors see our homes. They can also impact our property values and the property values of surrounding structures. The exterior of your house should match the interior which is why curb appeal is important whether or not you’re preparing to list your home to sell. Pressure washing is a quick and safe way to clean your home’s exterior.
Between air pollution and natural pollution of mold and pollen spores, the exteriors of our house can be a toxic mess. Non-pressure roof cleaning will remove the dirt and grime without damaging the exterior of your home. It is also significantly faster than the hours that can be spent on a ladder with sponges and hoses.
Many of the particles that find their way to your home’s exterior surfaces are far from harmless. Humid climates such as Florida increase the chances that, mold, moss, and mildew will grow on various surfaces surrounding your home.
Without removal, this debris can eat away at wood and metal. Debris on roofs can lead to the growth of algae and moss, damaging shingles, and requiring repairs or replacement before the original lifespan of the roof comes to an end. Allowing dirt to sit and collect on concrete, such as driveways or sidewalks, provides additional soil for grass and weed growth, which cracks and permanently damages difficult to repair surfaces. Regular pressure washing not only makes our exteriors look good, but it also helps extend the life of our outside structures.
