This is a question we hear often, and there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to how frequently you should pressure wash your Alpharetta home. We have a set of recommendations depending on the time of year and other factors.
As Part of Routine Maintenance
It’s good practice to have your home pressure washed at least once a year, but preferably twice. It’s not only a matter of how often, but also when. By having your home’s exterior cleaned at the proper times, you can get the most out of your investment.
- Late Spring: By this time, the last of the pollen has settled, so it’s safe to wash it away. Your pressure washing experts in Alpharetta also take this time to inspect for any damage that may have happened over the winter.
- Before Winter: The hot and humid summers can contribute to mold and mildew growth on your home’s exterior. Substantial growth can allow for more extensive damage caused by winter weather.
After a Bad Storm
Bad storms may leave debris and dirt on your home’s roof and siding. During the pressure washing process, your expert can inspect for any damage caused by the storm and clean away that debris to prevent it from causing more damage.
It’s essential to have a clean surface when painting so that the new coat of paint will adhere properly. In just a short time, the color can begin to flake. The outside of your home is covered in dirt and residue from the old paint slowly breaking down over many years. Pressure washing all of this away ensures the new paint will look fantastic for a long time to come.
When Preparing to Sell
Any real estate agent will tell you that you want to make your home look as perfect as possible before listing it. Buyers don’t want to invest time in cleaning and fixing. Pressure washing your home ensures that it looks fabulous when potential buyers come to view the property, and it also shows them that you have cared for the house during your time there. This increases its value and puts more money in your pocket.
It’s recommended to leave pressure washing to the professionals for the safety of both you and your home. To learn more about these services, call Alpha Pressure Washing today at (678) 235-6056. We take pride in making your Alpharetta home look its absolute best.
