Power Washing: What’s in it for you?
Power washing offers a lot of benefits for homeowners. If you’re wondering what power washing can do for your home, consider this.
Pressure washing can improve the appearance and value of your home. Power washing removes dirt, debris and organic accumulation that can make your home look run down and unattractive. Power washing a home restores its bright appearance, and makes your home look inviting.
Aside from improving your home’s appearance, pressure washing the exterior can also boost its curbside appeal. That’s an important benefit, if you’re considering selling your home or buying a new one. According to the National Association of Realtors, power washing can increase the asking price of a home by as much as $15,000. If you’ve recently purchased a home, power washing can be a quick way to increase your equity.
Home maintenance is always an issue. Pressure washing removes organic debris and dirt, but it also removes moss, mold, mildew and lichens, all of which are biologically active. These things can all accelerate the decay of the organic materials that comprise your home’s exterior. By limiting their ability to deteriorate your home’s exterior, you can prolong the life of the building itself, and reduce the need for extensive maintenance.
Removing biological accumulations from your home does more than improve your home’s appearance and help avoid deterioration. It also removes pollen, mold and other allergens that can enter your home if they’re allowed to hang around. Power washing in the spring and fall can eliminate pollens that aggravate seasonal allergies and diminish the air quality in your home.
Power washing can also improve the appearance of decks, foundations, patio furniture, in-ground swimming pools, garage floors and cement work. If you intend to recondition an existing deck, power washing the surface can help ensure that stains, paints or finishes adhere to and penetrate the surface of the wood. That can help extend the life of a deck, and potentially save thousands in repair or replacement costs. Power washing a garage floor is a great way to prepare the surface for sealing, too!
