From the sun, wind, rain, and more recently snow and ice, the exterior of your home is constantly bombarded by the elements.  This can quickly take a toll on the exterior of your home.  It doesn’t take long for your home can begin to look dingy and dirty. While there is no way to stop the elements you do have a weapon to combat the effect it has on your home.  A good pressure washing can make a remarkable difference in the appearance of your home.  One question we are often asked is, “How often should my home be pressure washed?”  We use our years of experience  to answer that question and give some guidelines on when pressure washing is not enough and the homeowner should think about replacing their boxing and siding or consider an exterior home repaint.

Benefits of pressure washing your home

Dirt, mold and grime can accumulate on the exterior of your home making it look older than it is.  Pressure washing blasts this off of the surfaces.  By using an experienced pressure washing company to clean your home exterior, you can get your home looking it’s best without the hassle of doing it yourself.

Contributing factors

Living in the South puts our homes in a more humid environment, making it more susceptible to mold and mildew accumulation.  This, coupled with the intense pine (and other) pollen that is seen in the spring means that homes in this region should be pressure washed more often than other areas.  Other factors that can contribute to more frequent pressure washing can be living in a lot with more leafy trees, and a more active hurricane season bringing intense windy conditions.

When to pressure wash your home

The best time to pressure wash your home is in the spring and summer months.  Pressure washing following the winter is an exterior spring cleaning of sorts.  It gets the exterior of your home looking its best and wash away all of the dirt and grime that have accumulated over the winter.  With our cold and hot pressure washing equipment Exterior Experts can help to clean your home in many weather conditions. 

When is it beyond a pressure washing and time to replace or repaint your siding?

There are times when your home might need more than a good pressure washing and it may be time to replace your siding.  If the siding has damage such as being broken, cracked, or warped, you will want to replace this to prevent further damage.  At Exterior Experts we can help you with your boxing and siding needs as well.  The sun can also have a powerful effect on your siding.  When this happens not even a good pressure washing can bring it back to its original luster and at these times an exterior repaint may be your best option.  The staff at Exterior Experts can also help you with any exterior home repaints that you might need as well as help you determine which course of action would benefit your home the most.
