Residential Power Washing: When and Where Do You Need It?
Power washing (also pressure washing) is one way to freshen up the look of your home. Its uses are straightforward: to clean a house’s exteriors by using high-pressured gusts of water to loosen the hardened debris embedded in siding panels and the gaps between bricks, stones, tiles, and other materials commonly used for home exteriors.
Renova Exterior Detailing’s professional power washing services in Seattle can remove years’ worth of accumulated dirt and stains from home outdoor surfaces. Read on to find out how you can benefit from having your home pressure washed.
A Thorough Cleaning for Home Exteriors
Wall siding, glass windows, the hardscape materials around your house (e.g., walkways, stone garden paths, patio, poolside deck), all of these can take a beating from the rain, wind, heat, UV radiation, insect infestation, pollution, and more.
The toll can leave visible marks on surfaces, which can become increasingly difficult to remove overtime. The grout on your pool deck will gradually get darker, your patio tiles duller, and your skylight more opaque than clear.
There will come a point when you’ll need something more intense than sweeping to clean off the area, a point where professional pressure washing is the only option.
We can safely pressure-wash the following areas of your home:
- Glass walls and windows
- Balconies, decks, and patios
- Sidewalks and walkways
- Storm drains
- Hardscape surfaces
When Should You Schedule a Power Washing at Home?
There is no hard rule as to when you should pressure wash the exteriors of your home, but we highly recommend doing it in early spring. The weather is warm enough at this time that freezing water will no longer be a problem. It’s also timely: winter can leave grime, sand, and salt around your home. The soil can also turn muddy when the snow starts melting. More dirt will have accumulated on your driveway, patio, and garden paths afterward.
Another appropriate time for power washing would be late fall. You can clean out your gutters and storm drain before winter.
Weather aside, any time that your home starts looking grimy and dull is a good time to call for a pressure washing service.
Pressure Washing for Home Maintenance
The main purpose of residential pressure washing is to clean your home’s exteriors, but that’s not all our services can do.
Power washing can also address the following issues:
- Mold growth – The changing temperature indoors versus outdoors can create an environment that’s conducive to mold growth. Pressure washing is very effective in washing away stubborn mold. We can also use special cleaning solutions that can prevent bacteria from growing back.
- Ice-covered decks – Walking on walkways and decks that are covered in ice is a safety hazard, hence the need to call a pro pressure washer. If your house is near a major road that’s constantly being salted in winter, a good power washing can also wash everything — dirt, debris, ice, salt — off your property.
