The siding on your house actually gets dirty, though you may not notice until it gets really dirty or someone else points it out to you – how embarrassing! Periodic maintenance on your siding will prevent this from happening and will also keep your siding looking just like new. Not sure what to do? Here are some suggestions from professional cleaners.
After construction ends on your new property, the work for the owner has just begun. Whether you are going to live in it yourself, sell it, or use it as a workspace, you should definitely get to cleaning. This job is a pretty big one to try to DIY. Hiring a professional cleaning service will help, especially when it comes to your siding. Maybe there are paint stains that need to be removed or damage made to a wall after moving in furniture. No matter the case, hiring a professional to come in to do new construction cleaning will make things easier on whatever your next step for the building is.
Dust and debris will slowly contaminate the siding of your home. And if you’re in a humid or dusty area, it could happen quicker than you think. Professional cleaners suggest that you pressure wash your house at least once a year, but if you are in a humid or dusty area you may want to do so more than once. Take personal preference into account when setting a schedule, of course, since you will know when the siding of your house is dirty enough to need a cleaning. But we suggest you not wait too long, to prevent any damage to the siding.
Some of the siding in your house will have windows, and those will need to be cleaned as well. You may think you can DIY your window cleaning, but some may be too big or hard to reach. And a professional should come in once a year (just like the pressure washer) to examine your windows for any damage or issues with the glass. Keeping your windows intact and clean will help keep your siding looking like new as well.
Mold happens, even when we’re careful about damp places around our house. That being said, you want to treat mold as quickly as possible. Since mold can spread very quickly and often hides, what you notice is probably only part of the problem. Hiring a professional cleaner to get rid of all of the mold will prevent a reoccurrence due to a DIY mistake. Mold will need to be removed safely and quickly to prevent any damage to the house or the health of its inhabitants.
Gutters and downspouts need maintenance as well. They can get clogged with debris or develop cracks that allow water to damage the siding of your house or even the foundation. They should be inspected for damage and cleaned out regularly to make sure they are working properly. A professional cleaning company can do this safely and efficiently.
