Many homeowners are tempted to wash their exteriors as soon as they notice dirt and dust buildup, but choosing to schedule your pressure washing at the wrong time can drastically reduce its effectiveness. You can use the benefits that summer weather provides to ensure that power washing is a worthwhile investment for your home.
Remove Mold from Spring Showers
Months of rain during spring, combined with Floridian heat and humidity, promote the growth of algae, mildew, and mold on your home’s exterior each year. These organisms are potential health hazards that eat away at the surface of your home. Other cleaning services can reduce mildew and mold growth, but pressure washing completely removes it as well as spores that can infiltrate your home’s interior.
Living in a home with mold exposes you to irritants that cause itching, sneezing, and rashes. If left untreated, mold and mildew will also harden to cause permanent discoloration. Summer cleaning services allow you to remove these dangerous elements as soon as possible to minimize damage to your health and home.
Unexpected showers during spring and falling debris in fall and winter make these seasons less suitable for roof cleaning services. Similarly, cleaning too early in the spring will allow pollen to build up again until the next time you schedule professional cleaning services.
Clear weather keeps your home clean for longer periods of time after your professional washing. Summer also has more hours of sunlight, making it easier to finish pressure cleaning projects in a single visit rather than over multiple days.
Effective Preventative Care
Including regular power washing as part of your home maintenance will reduce your costs by helping you avoid expensive or frequent repairs. Most contaminants that build up on your home’s exterior shorten its lifespan significantly, but annual pressure washing prevents problems such as cracked paint and dry rot. It will also prevent these smaller problems from compounding until you need to replace your siding or roof.
Regular pressure washing and maintenance will help your home retain its property value as well. Clean exteriors directly increase the curb appeal of homes and businesses, while unwashed dirt and grime will drive away potential buyers.
Outdoor Spaces for Activities and Projects
Summer has the perfect weather for enjoying your outdoor areas, and pressure washing can help you prepare your deck or patio for outdoor activities. Unlike other cleaning methods, power washing uses high-pressure water without chemicals that could put the environment or your health at risk. Pressure washing your patio lets you prepare for hosting summer gatherings without worrying about cleaning solutions.
Power washing is an important step in other common summer projects as well, especially painting your house. Removing dirt, grime, pollen, and more from your home’s exterior gives the painters a smooth and clean surface with which to work. This helps the paint bond more easily and last longer while reducing imperfections such as bubbles, peeling, or chipping.
