What is a House Power Wash?
A house power wash is an easy and affordable way to clean your home. A house power wash service involves spraying high-powered water at the exterior of the home which loosens dirt and grime before it’s scrubbed away by a powerful brush. This process is done from the ground level up to the roofline, making sure no corner is left dirty or unsoaped. Cleaning your home has never been easier than with a house power wash!
To get started, you should evaluate the condition of your home’s exterior. If there are cracks in the foundation or peeling siding, contact a licensed contractor about repairs before getting to work on your power wash. You need to ensure that any loose materials are safely removed from the area before the process begins, which means removing any plants within reach of the sprayer and covering any surfaces that could be damaged by water penetration.
If there are stains on patios, decks or other areas that will remain accessible after cleaning, then consider renting an appropriate machine for use with bleach or other eco-friendly cleaners. However, if you opt for this type of deep cleanse, make sure your property is well ventilated during use to reduce exposure to hazardous fumes.
Use extreme caution when cleaning any surface that is attached to the home, including windowsills and gutters. Depending on the location of these features, you might not be able to reach them with a brush or other tools while standing safely on the ground, so consider asking for help if your arms aren’t long enough.
When preparing your home for cleaning, start by removing all loose materials from decking and patios. Be careful near windows—these surfaces are often full of dirt and residue which can scratch glass when scrubbed away. You may even want to invest in special window cleaners designed for use with power washers to reduce the risk of damage during this step in the process.
Before applying cleaner or soap, test the pressure of the water by spraying it on an inconspicuous area of the home. This will help you avoid any surprises (and potential damage) when you start cleaning in earnest.
Now that your home is ready for a power wash, it’s time to choose the right equipment. If you have a lot of exterior surfaces to clean, you might want to consider renting a professional-grade machine rather than trying to tackle the job with a standard garden hose.
Depending on your level of experience, you might also want to consider hiring a professional to complete the power wash for you. They will have the knowledge and experience necessary to get the job done quickly and safely without damaging your property.
