Looking for a refresh this season? From the siding on your house, to brick patios or walkways, to even the gutters protecting your house from rain, power washing can give a brand new shine to even your dirtiest areas.
What is Power Washing?
Power washing combines water pressure with cleaning agents to remove entire layers of built-up dirt and particles, oil, gum, and other gunk that’s accumulated over time. The tools used to clean these items are usually professional grade and powerful. It is important that you have someone operating the high-pressure water who knows what they are doing so they don’t damage the siding of your house or other areas. The term power washing is often used interchangeably with pressure washing as they use similar techniques.
Why Homes Need Power Washing
Why a homeowner will need power washing is really determined by what is being washed and what they would like removed. For example, our climate in New England can encourage the growth of mold and mildew that can cling to the wood siding of your home, shed, or deck. A thorough power washing can remove the mold and washing with certain cleaners can discourage the new growth of molds or mildew.
If cleaning is your main objective, a power washing can clean up the leftover salt and debris from the winter on walkways, the exterior of a home, or decks. Many homeowners use power washing to rid their gutters of built up leaves, sticks, and trash that may have built up over the years.
If your home or deck needs repainting or refinishing, a power wash prior to applying the paint or finish can ensure that any peeling, bubbling paint is easily removed. Power washing will take it right off.
