When Is The Best Time To Power Wash A House?


Midwest winters can be rough on any home’s exterior. The ever changing combination of rain, snow and ice can cause algae, mold, mildew and moss to build up on basically any outdoor exterior. This is why a yearly house wash should be on the top of every Midwest homeowner’s spring cleaning list. There is no better way to get your house ready for summer than a thorough outdoor cleaning.


Ideal Conditions for Power Washing

Generally, power washing a house can be completed in most weather conditions, outside of freezing temperatures and dangerous storms. Rain and wind can make for unsafe working conditions, so it is always advised to have a heightened sense of awareness when working in inclement weather. If properly executed, rain should not impact the results of your work. If anything it might help speed up the clean up process! You may be wondering when the best time of the year to power wash your house is…being located in the Midwest, we recommend washing your house once a year anytime between the months of March and November.


Best Time of Day to Power Wash

House washing can be performed at basically any time of the day, as long as you have sufficient light needed to safely complete the job. Extreme summer heat can make it difficult to properly wash your house, especially while working with certain chemicals. Getting started early in the morning or towards the end of the day can be better for both the operator and the exterior being worked on. Harsh afternoon light can lead to missed spots and can cause soap and chemicals to prematurely dry, leaving spotting and possible permanent damage to a house’s exterior. Always be diligent when it comes to rinsing off soft wash detergents as soon as possible when working in hot weather.
