Have you ever looked at your home and thought, I need to replace my siding, deck, gutters, or concrete? The exterior of your home takes the brunt of the weather, and these features of your home can look dreary quicker than you think. Before you open up your wallet, there may be less expensive options. Pressure washing can rejuvenate and refresh the look of your home.
We will discuss the options and applications for saving you time, money, and making your house look fresh. Pressure washers are sensitive machines that mix water or other liquid combinations with compressed air to generate a powerful stream. What makes pressure washers such fabulous cleaning tools is they are able to clean and remove deep down surface dirt using air pressure and water. Power washing employs two critical variables, water flow and air pressure.
Common areas for pressure washing:
- Concrete Pads
- Wood (Ready for Paint)
- In Ground Pools
Before you begin your pressure washing project you must first understand how to use the pressure washing system. Please see the instruction manual with your specific unit.
The main point, is the ability to save you time and money while keeping your home looking new and fresh, which is much better than the alternative of replacement. Even if you are contracting out for the service, it is much less expensive. For example for a colonial 2,000 square foot home it may cost you $6,000 to replace the siding, while pressure washing the siding might cost you $450.
Whether you are doing it yourself or hiring help, cleaning will extend the life of your deck, siding or whatever you are cleaning. If you decide to hire out make sure you do your homework, and make sure the contractor is certified, licensed, and insured.
