Interior Colors Can Beat the HeatJuly 16, 2014
Pressure washing is one that most Indiana residents put off the most often. It’s often justified by the belief that typical erratic weather patterns will result a “good rinse” soon enough. Although this is a nice thought, a good pressure wash involves more consistency, resulting in a deeper clean that is vital to the health and longevity of multiple home areas.
The task gets the “hard to reach” places that Mother Nature simple can’t reach with a modern Warsaw monsoon. If it’s been awhile, there’s a good chance that some of the grime from the wetter seasons is still hiding out in the lower areas of the home exterior. Unfortunately, over the years this can decrease the longevity of the paint and potentially result in costly repairs.
It’s easy to overlook some of the dirt and grease in the driveway after a long day at work. However, a little attention now and again with pressure washing will brighten the look and appeal of a home with a tidy appearance. The cleaning method is also extremely impactful and crucial for proper deck maintenance. Whether it’s an occasional rinse to prevent mold, mildew and potential wood rotting, or a deep clean in preparation for entertaining outdoor guests, pressure washing is necessary.
When it is finally time for a fresh coat of exterior paint, a good pressure washing is needed to avoid trapping dirt, dust and other undesirable marks that will age the paint faster in the long run. Otherwise, an occasional cleaning will create a clean exterior that protects the structural integrity of any house and looks as incredible as well.
Although pressure washing is an important aspect of home care on every level, not all surfaces are created equally. Varying degrees of pressure are required for difference areas of home care. When in doubt, consult a professional for advice or assistance in the art of pressure washing a home.
