Pressure Washing for Beginners | Power Washer 101
Did you know that pressure washing is the most popular way to clean exterior surfaces of buildings? It’s true! This cleaning method removes dirt and stains from building exteriors. This includes siding, brick, stucco, concrete block or stone walls, decks and fences. Read on for everything you need to know about this method!
The Basics of Pressure Washing
Pressurized cleaning is a great way to get your house looking like new again. It’s also the most cost-effective and environmentally safe way to wash your exterior walls, gutters, windowsills and more. Make sure you do not rinse any surfaces that are peeling or flaking as it can lead to damage. If you have wooden siding on your home, make sure to remove any dirt or grime from the crevices with a brush instead of using high-pressurized water. To avoid damage to brick, stone and stucco walls, never use equipment that is rated higher than 2000 PSI when cleaning these surfaces.
The Benefits to Pressure Washing
There are so many benefits to this cleaning method! You’ll see why homeowners go crazy over it! Here a just a few:
Bringing Back Curb Appeal
Curb appeal is one of the most important things when it comes to selling a house. But, if you’re like me and don’t have time or money for expensive paint jobs. That’s where pressurized rinsing comes in. Homeowners who want to add value, but don’t want to spend a ton of money can use this method instead. When it comes time for your home appraisal make sure you have any areas that need touching up painted beforehand or else the appraiser will knock down your score because they won’t be able to see the work that has been done.
Saying Goodbye to Mold and Mildew
Power rinsing is also a great option for cleaning your home’s exterior before you try to sell it. If you have any black mold or mildew on your siding, using a rinser will help eliminate these spots and make it look fresh again. Cleaning with traditional chemicals can be dangerous and cause damage. It is a great way to clean your home’s exterior without causing any harm.
