You take great pride in the way the exterior of your home looks. Just like the interior of your home, cleaning the exterior of your home is essential to keep it looking nice. Power washing just like any other exterior maintenance has a regular schedule. You may be asking what that schedule is. The recommendation from many professionals is power washing once a year. However, there are other things to consider when determining how often you should power wash your home.
The climate plays a role in how often power washing your home should occur. Some questions you should ask to determine the frequency based on climate are:
1.) Do I live in a wet, humid climate?
2.) Do I have an abundance of trees on my property?
3.) Is my environment prone to dust storms?
If you answer yes to any of the questions above, then you will need to schedule a power washing more than once per year. For example, if you live in a place where dust storms happen more frequently, then the exterior of your home will become dirty more quickly. Another example includes living in a more humid condition. If this you, then your home’s exterior is more likely to grow mold and mildew. Power washing your home more frequently takes care of both the dust and mold issue.
It may be hard to believe, but power washing your home can actually make your family’s health better. If your home is not power washed frequently, it can foster harmful contaminant growth such as mold and algae. Breathing in this toxic air can cause respiratory illness as well as increases asthma. Power washing your home more than once a year rids your home of these harmful contaminants and keeps your family healthy.
If you are planning to renovate or paint your home’s exterior, then power washing your home prior is important. Painting your home without a power washing will make it harder to apply paint, and the paint won’t last as long. Power washing prior to applying new paint allows for the paint to adhere better and last longer.
You may look at your home and think it is time for a power washing. However, someone else may look at your home and think it is fine. One of the biggest things to consider when determining the frequency of power washing is personal preference. If you think your home looks dirty or you want to make a good impression on your guest, then you may power wash your home more often than once a year.
