Pressure washing your home is a great way to keep it looking its best. However, you should know a few things before you start. Here is everything you need to know about pressure washing your home:

What Is Pressure Washing?

Pressure washing uses water, and a mildewcide, to remove dirt, grime, and other buildups from surfaces like concrete, brick, siding, and decks. When you wash a house, whether it is stucco, brick, or siding, you do not want to use any pressure. The mildewcide and the rinse gets in all the nooks, and crannies, without harming any of the surface.   It’s a safe way to cleanse your home’s exterior surfaces and an effective way to remove tough stains that regular cleaning can’t remove.

There are reasons why you might want to pressure wash your home. Pressure washing can restore the look of faded or stained siding, remove mold and mildew growth, and even help prep your home for painting or staining. If something on your home’s exterior needs to be cleaned and the water hose isn’t doing the trick, pressure washing is the answer.

How to Experts Pressure Wash Your Home Safely and Effectively

Now that you know pressure washing and why you might want to do it, let’s talk about how professionals pressure washes your home safely and effectively. They use a pressure washer (duh), and detergent specifically designed for pressure washers. The detergent, or mildewcide, is put into the machine, and this gives the professional, the ability to inject the mildewcide, or just use the water rinse.  

Now it’s time to start. They begin by clearing the area around your home of any furniture or other belongings that could get in the way.
