Most people don’t think about the outside of their home, but it’s very important to not neglect this area. Some people decide to just spend a day or two scrubbing everything hand, concerned power washing will damage the home. Power washing reduces the need for ladders and improves the cleaning ability. Improper use of power washing equipment or using a power washer on something that has lost structural integrity can be problematic, but at Arizona Window Washers, LLC, we do it right so you don’t have to worry about it.
All of the dirt outside that accumulates on your vinyl siding, brick walls, and more can be blasted off using a power washer instead of scrubbing for hours. Humidity can lead to mold and mildew and heavy storms with wind and rain can cake on mud, dirt, leaves, and dust onto your home. Birds, harsh sunlight, and insects can all cause cleanliness problems as well. Simply living in an area with a lot of trees and other plants can lead to a frequent need for power washing, as does areas of high pollution or smoke from BBQ grills.
Plan your power washing accordingly. If there is no structural damage from the mold or mildew, it may be wise to wait out a rainy or snowy season. If you know the cause of your dirt and grime, put it off until the cause has worn down (like avoid doing it when leaves are falling and changing or during high winds). Save this task for mild weather with sunshine. This will promote drying and it will further the need of washing between visits.
Some companies recommend washing between once and twice a year, with considering repainting or replacing siding every 7 years. Proper washing can decrease damage done to your property (house, deck, fences, and more) and increase the value of your home while keeping residents safer and healthier. Many people have respiratory problems related to soot, mold, milder, and more, so just like it’s necessary to clean the interior, the exterior does best at protecting you and your loved ones from the ravages of nature. Some waxes or additives can reduce the need for cleaning in the future or protect surfaces from other damaging elements.
There are some reservations people have about power washing, but many of those problems are easily avoided with proper knowledge of the equipment, procedures, and chemicals involved. Water can be forced into cracks or crevices of wood and stone, causing some problems but most of them can be avoided or remedied.
Besides general cleaning, pressure or power washing can remove oil, house or boat paint, and graffiti. There are many uses for it, so you can call us to ask if we can handle your cleaning or paint removal needs.
