Why You Need a House Wash

house washing

You clean the inside of your home on a regular basis, but what about the exterior of your home?  Apart from windows, homeowners often overlook cleaning their home exteriors. Whether it is vinyl siding or brick, a simple house wash can help prevent future headaches and keep your property sparkling.

Your home’s exterior components are delicate, and pressure washing them can often lead to more damages. When used incorrectly, the high-pressure from a power washer can break, dent, and destroy vinyl siding, gutters, eaves, fascia, and other critical exterior components.  So, you may be thinking, “What can I do to clean my home safely?” The answer is soft washing. Soft washing can restore your home to its original beauty because it uses a low-pressure system coupled with environmentally friendly chemicals to safely clean your home. The best part about using a soft washing method is that it is the most affordable way to improve your curb side appeal without losing its value.

Here are 3 reasons why you need a house wash!

Enhanced Curb Appeal

The first reason many people choose to wash the exterior of their home is for appearance.  It simply looks nice to have a clean, well-kept residence.  And it also feels good too. We call it having ‘Pride in Ownership.’ or PIO.

The visual appearance of your home’s exterior also plays a role in the perceived value of your home. Neighborhoods who have cleaner, well-maintained homes tend to have higher property values. Everything from your driveway and sidewalks, patio and deck, roof and house siding can be expertly restored by our team of trained professionals.

Removing Mold, Algae, and Mildew

Untreated mold and algae can cause damage to your property, but it can also be harmful to your family, pets, and surrounding landscaping.  Whether its algae growing on your vinyl siding or black algae streaks running down your roof, it is important to maintain a healthy home exterior. Mold and algae feeds off moisture and other organic matters and it can spread rapidly if not cleaned properly.

In addition, homeowners can reduce the level of allergens in and around their home by washing the exterior. Removing mold, moss, and mildew can reduce seasonal allergies such as coughing, sneezing and watery eyes.

Save Time & Money

Soft washing your home is smart preventative maintenance. For example, cleaning out your gutters reduces debris accumulation and removes moisture that could create roof rotting. Cleaning your home can prevent costly repairs to your property. Soft washing your home is the least expensive option for cleaning large surfaces such as your home’s exterior.

Compared to conventional cleaning methods, using a soft wash system saves time in terms of mixing chemical solutions, climbing ladders, and the hours spent cleaning getting a fraction of the results. The soft wash system can clean your home in just a few hours.
