DIY House Pressure Washing – 4 Reasons It’s a Bad Idea

Alpharetta GA Pressure Washing Services

Here are four reasons why you should avoid DIY pressure washing your home in Alpharetta and leave the job to seasoned experts.

1. Too Much Pressure

When it comes to pressure washing, more isn’t necessarily better. Dirt, mold, stains, and plant matter may come off with very little pressure. Using too much pressure can damage even materials like brick and cement.

2. Pressure Washing Can Ruin Your Exterior Finish

Do you know exactly what kind of finish is covering the outside of your home? If you don’t tailor the power wash to the details of your finish, you could cause permanent damage.

3. Pressure Washing Can Cause Moisture Damage

Using too much pressure and/or power washing the wrong areas of your home can send water into places that aren’t supposed to be wet. For example, incorrectly pressure washing wood shingles soak the insulation. These areas don’t dry out well. You may even end up sealing the moisture inside if you caulk or paint your house after power washing it.

4. Lead Paint Exposure Risk

Power washing is a good way to loosen up an old layer of paint in preparation for a fresh coat. But if the old paint is lead-based, then you can end up sending paint chips all over you or your neighbor’s yard where kids and pets can find them. Lead paint needs to be properly disposed of, not power washed away. You shouldn’t use a pressure washer if you aren’t sure what kind of paint is on your home.
