Pressure washing is an important step before painting the exterior of your home. The exterior walls of your house are constantly exposed to harsh weather elements every day. That causes the paint to fall off, and the dirt accumulates. It’s hard to notice these changes because they develop slowly, over time. Pressure washing the walls once a year will keep the walls of your house looking clean.
It is absolutely crucial to prep your house for new paint with a detailed pressure wash and makes sure all the dirt and broken paint are removed. This process makes sure that the new paint sticks to the walls properly.
Fairfax Painter Pro crew has identified major benefits from our years of experience.
There are other benefits to pressure washing, some of which are:
1. Increases The Value Of Your Home
When and if you plan on selling your house, pressure wash it first. Then, take care of all small jobs and touch-ups. Replace loose bricks and repaint parts that stand out. This process can increase the value of your property by as much as 3%. Get the best price for your home by doing these small, but important, jobs.
2. Improves Appeal
When spring arrives, homeowners often spend a ton of time and money to freshen up their landscapes and decorate it with new elements. The walls of your home’s exterior shouldn’t be an exception. Having clean walls adds to the appeal of the house, especially if you’re looking to sell it. Repainting the entire exterior can be costly.
If the paint is still in good condition, a good pressure washing will remove all dirt and peeling paint, giving your home a new shine that instantly increases its appeal and selling price.
3. Preventive Maintenance
Regular pressure washing can make a huge difference in maintaining your home. Pressure wash the walls once a year to prevent mildew and grime from damaging its exterior. This way, you won’t have to worry about replacing paint or rotten wood on decks, and you slow down the aging process of your home.
Pressure wash the exterior walls of the house before painting it to make the paint last longer. Paint sticks much better to clean than dirty walls.
4. Protects Your Home From Dangerous Bacteria
The exterior walls of your home gather dirt, mildew, and other harmful bacteria that should be avoided. This bacteria eats through the paint and can cause major health issues if it ends up inside a person. If you hire our team of professionals, they will pressure wash the walls and clean them from all harmful substances. You and your pets will be safe from diseases and bacteria.
Pressure washing can be applied to other elements of your home’s exterior. It works great on:
- Outdoor grills
- Swimming pools
- Garden furniture
- Doors and windows
Of course, you can rent or buy a pressure washer and get the job done yourself, but that costs a lot of time and money. It can also prove to be dangerous if you don’t know how to work one. Pressure washing on the wrong nozzle can result in injuries and property damage. That is why you should leave this job for our team of trained professionals.
