If you are at home more and noticing that exterior areas could do with a thorough clean, you may be thinking about prioritizing. For most homeowners, gauging the importance of maintenance tasks comes down to personal choice. In that respect, there is no right or wrong place to start.
To illustrate the point, families may consider the poolside most important when it comes to pressure washing. If you or your little ones spend a lot of time splashing in the water, poolside areas will get wet and have to deal with the harsh chemicals you use to keep pool water clean.
There are risks including mold and corrosion to think about. Although pressure washing also uses water, the right cleaning mix will help to wash away harmful chemicals and pathogens that can shorten the lifespan of poolside patios or concrete.
Pressure washing siding is more of an aesthetic consideration, but like with poolside areas, there are benefits when it comes to durability. Having siding pressure washed will improve the appearance of your home. The only issue is that using the wrong pressure or cleaning mix can actually damage most siding materials.
Having siding professionally cleaned will improve curb appeal and increase the lifespan of the structure. Any organic material that adheres to sidings will eventually break down and lead to chemical reactions. Depending on the compounds, these chemical reactions can lead to corrosion that could damage the external structures of your home.
Paving & Driveways
If you are more concerned with the areas you walk on or where you park the car, perhaps paving and the driveway are at the top of your list for pressure washing. It’s really a matter of personal preferences. No homeowner is under any obligation to prioritize one area over another when it comes to home maintenance unless there are significant safety concerns.
