Your home is your pride and joy, and keeping it looking as beautiful as it did when you first bought it makes you feel like a great homeowner. A clean home, inside and out, is a happy home, and so the best way to keep your house’s exterior looking fresh and clean is to power (also known as pressure) wash it! When you power wash the exterior of your home, it removes grime, dirt, and other stains that could have been making your driveways, porches, and decks look subpar and filthy. Power washing has the ability to benefit the look, appeal, and resale value of your home in multiple ways.
1. Increases the value of your home- Power washing your home could add anywhere from $10,000-15,000 on to the value of your home. It keeps the house in mint condition! Also, power washing takes preventative measure against damage from rotting or decaying of the exte- rior, and therefore avoiding costly repairs.
2. Increases curb appeal- Especially if you are looking to put your house up for sale, the curb appeal of your home is very important to keep in mind. The view of the outside of your house can make or break the sale, so keeping it clean is the way to go.
3. Protecting your family- Without washing the outside of your house, it will be exposed to all kinds of contaminants from the outside, such as dirt, mold, mildew, and pests. Power washing the exterior of your home prevents bacteria from growing, therefore protecting those who live in your house.
