Boost Curb Appeal by Power Washing Your Home

As time passes, the exterior of your home can give in to the effects of unsightly mold, mildew and other pollutants that end up accumulating on the surface. Power washing is the answer to the problem if performed on a consistent basis. If you leave your home’s exterior in bad condition, it is going to become a major eyesore, something your neighbors won’t appreciate. In addition, any structures around your home, including the porch, deck and sidewalks can also end up looking dirty and unkempt. Aside from blemishing the aesthetic presentation of your home, the contaminants can lead to the premature aging of its exterior coating and cause wooden surfaces to rot if they’re not cleaned in a timely manner (once a year is a good rule of thumb) says Bob Pergolotti of Fairfield County Power Washing.

If you’re selling your home, you more than likely are struggling to keep everything “model home” ready, particularly if you’re living in the home until it sells. There are a lot of things you need to do to your home’s exterior and landscaping as well. Pressure washing should be at the top of your list.

Power Washing and Curb Appeal
There’s no better way to renew your home’s curb appeal than power washing which delivers a rejuvenated, refreshed appearance that potential home buyers will notice. As the accumulated crud is washed away during the power washing process, a fresh surface will be uncovered. This home maintenance practice will instantly increase the value of your home.

Power Washing Improves and Protects Property Value
A clean home without indications of obvious neglect is worth significantly more than a home that has been neglected for years. Pressure washing your home prior to listing it for sale just makes sense. Even if you’re not planning on selling you can also protect you invest by pressure washing, removing the grime and pollen that will eventually take a toll on the siding. Having the grime removed at least once a year will protect your investment and boost its curb appeal. The best time to have your home power washed is when the weather is sunny and mild.

Presser Washing Expertise
If you don’t have any experience pressure washing you should consider hiring a professional. Pressurized water can cause a lot of damage if it isn’t used properly and can strip away paint and cause splintering that can make mold and mildew problems worse. Combine these potential issues with the fact that climbing ladders and using pressurized water can be dangerous is reason enough to hire a professional.

Finding the Right Professional Power Washing Service
Not all power washing services aren’t equal, so you’ll want to do some research, asking for referrals, also reading online reviews, looking for one that’s been in business a significant length of time, etc. Professional power washers will use commercial grade equipment that they have experience using as well, reducing the chance of potential damages.
