If you’ve been looking at your home and outbuildings with a critical eye and thinking that everything could use a fresh coat of paint, there is one thing to consider first – you might want to have everything pressure washed first. There are some great benefits to washing your house on a regular basis, and if you haven’t done it in a while there are even more benefits than you might think.
The first thing to be aware of is the layer of surface dirt that builds up on your home’s exterior from the roof tiles or shingles to the foundation and surrounding structures like walkways and decks. This surface dirt isn’t immediately harmful, but the longer it sits on your shingles or siding, the more damage it could potentially do. Eventually mold and mildew start to form and attach to that surface dirt, and if allowed to go unchecked, these substances will work their way down under the dirt and into the actual surface of the building materials. Paint, at that point, is certainly affected as it begins to blister and crack from the pressure of the growth of these harmful substances.
You can also get tannin stains from leaves and bark as well as stains from your vehicles on your driveway and surrounds. In addition to the damage that mold and mildew can cause to the surface levels of your home, they are a health concern for you and your family when allowed to go unchecked.
Leaving these elements to their own devices also causes a decline in your home’s curb appeal. If you were to need to list your home on the real estate market, you would find that leaving in that condition would knock as much as $10,000 or more from the asking price. It not only isn’t good to look at, but no one can tell how big a job it would be to take care of the problem.
So making sure you take care of it first is the best course of action in every way. Pressure washing is the way to go, as well since the pressure you can get from your own hose and water supply won’t get under that surface dirt as needed. A good soft pressure wash – one that isn’t too harsh of a pressure, but strong enough to remove grime – is a wonderful way to refresh your home’s exterior in every way. Sydney Home Wash is just the company you need to do the job right and get your home and it’s outlying structures beautifully clean without any damage.
Suddenly you’ll find that you don’t need that paint job after all. You just needed a little water applied at the right pressure to get down to the beauty that drew you to your home in the first place. And if you really are going to list your house to be sold, a house washing from Sydney Home Wash is the first thing that should be on your curb appeal list. For a very low cost, you can look like you have a whole new home on display. Give Sydney Home Wash and see the difference.
