Many people fail to realize just how dirty their home's exterior is until it has been treated to a pressure wash by Window Genie professionals. In fact, many people do not even know that a pressure washer can be used to clean their home.

 

Home owners who have seen or felt a pressure washer in action know that this powerful piece of equipment is capable of stripping wood from a deck, and consequently may not feel it is appropriate to point at their walls. This is an understandable reaction considering that the home is typically a family's greatest investment, and mold concerns have heightened in recent years. It is true that inexperienced handlers can damage their home using a pressure washer, but highly-trained Window Genie service technicians are capable of giving your vinyl, stucco or painted wood siding a deep clean without the collateral damage.

 

How does the home accumulate dirt?

 

When exposed to the elements for extended periods of time, dirt naturally accumulates on your home's siding. Blowing winds kick up gusts of dirt and debris that will envelope your house. Similarly, harsh rainfall will wash your home in dirt, salts and other pollutants throughout the fall. Dirty slush, berries, saps and the waste of bugs and animals will also gradually build up over time, leaving deceptive stain age that seriously impacts your home's curb appeal and longevity.

How to prepare your home for the best possible house pressure washing.

 

Window Genie professionals will remind you of the proper steps needed to eliminate the risk of damaging the home before they begin their cleaning, but it is useful to review them here so that you can take the initiative preparing your home for the best possible results.

 

    Locate all of the power outlets at the exterior of your home and take note of them for safety reasons.

    Close all of your windows and fill in any small ventilation holes with rolled up paper or a piece of putty that can be easily removed afterwards. This will stop any water from entering the home during your cleaning.

    Remove your shutters if possible. This will allow your Window Genie to have the best chance of clearing out spiders and wasps which commonly cluster in these hard-to-reach areas.

    Take note of all lighting fixtures and mailboxes so that the Window Genie worker can switch to low-pressure options, or avoid these vulnerable fixtures entirely when pressure washing the house.

Pressure washing has quickly become one of the preferred methods of cleaning a variety of surfaces in both residential, commercial, and business locations. From sidewalks and patios to residential home exteriors, pressure washing is suitable in a number of different cleaning contexts. Pressure washing is an excellent way of maintaining or restoring the look of the home, with many realty agents recommending that potential sellers invest in a pressure wash as a way of boosting the curb appeal and listing price of their home. When used to treat concrete sidewalks, pressure washing is a quick, easy, and efficient way of removing all manner of dirt or salt deposits that contribute to surface weathering. If you are worried about having to invest time and energy replacing another stained deck, then pressure washing may be your answer, as it is one of the best ways to boost their longevity. Read on to learn about the many benefits of pressure washing!

Pressure washing is easy for everyone.

Conventional cleaning tasks typically require a lot of time, energy, and elbow grease. With pressure washing, there is no need to scrub and strain to unsettle stubborn debris. Save your back and joints the effort. Pressure washers let you maintain a strong upright posture and direct the force of the water towards unwelcome stains. The set-up required for a pressure washing treatment is also quite simple, involving about as many steps as it would require to find soap, sponges, and fill a bucket. Simply affix a water hose to the pressure washer unit, and either plug it in or add fuel to its power source to begin.

Pressure washing saves serious time.

Compared to regular cleaning methods, pressure-washing is an anti-bacteria blitzkrieg. When you invest in a professional pressure washing, you are cutting out the need to gather materials, prepare a cleaning solution of appropriate strength, and undergo a rigorous half-day or more of scrubbing. Pressure washing eliminates the need for time-consuming ladder work, allowing you to simply point the nozzle towards hard-to-reach areas.

Pressure washing keeps your family safe.

Your home houses more than family. On decks, exterior walls, and sidewalks you will find a number of unique contaminants, varying in severity from dirt to harmful mold. Pressure washing blasts these potentially harmful substances away, keeping your family breathing the purest air possible. Pressure washing away algae or other slippery substances also minimizes your family's risk of slips or falls at home. Furthermore, regular pressure washing treatments are considered part of an overall preventative maintenance effort that can keep your home safe and in-shape. Keeping your home clean hinders the premature decay of your porch, driveway, or deck, improving safety outcomes.

Pressure washing boosts curb appeal.

When realty agents are asked by motivated sellers how they can distinguish their homes from countless other listing competitors, they often reply that increasing curb value is an effort well-invested. Curb appeal allows your home to stand out from other home listings, and will draw in many more interested buyers when it comes time to host a viewing. Many of the actions taken to improve curb appeal can be completed faster and more thoroughly using a pressure washer. Boosting curb appeal is often done by shaping up the condition of the driveway and bordering sidewalks, or by cleaning unattractive mildew off of the home's exterior. Pressure washing can take care of all of these tasks in a breeze, preserving your time and energy for more pressing issues faced when entering in to an unruly realty market!

Pressure washing is easy on the environment.

Heavy-duty cleaning is commonly associated with the application of harmful chemical cleaners. These cleaning solutions can be very effective, but typically enact a heavy toll on the environment. Pressure washing does not introduce any harmful chemicals into the environment. Pressure washers work by blasting water at high velocity, and the power of this water stream is often sufficient to lift stains and mildew without the need for harmful chemicals.

Pressure washers also use less water when compared to the amount used by a garden hose tackling the same kind of job. The amount of force applied by pressure washers means that much less water will be needed overall, with some estimates suggesting that as much as 75% of water is saved using pressure washing. This is because a pressure washer expels water at roughly 50 times the force of a garden hose. This allows the smallest amount of water to be granted the greatest amount of cleaning power.
