Fall Preparation Tips: Power Wash Your Home’s Exterior Wall
As fall arrives, you may begin to notice a brown or green color in your house – especially if your home’s exterior is made of light colored brick or siding. You will be asking yourself what that is. The brown or green tint you saw could probably be mildew, moss, or algae. If you don’t move fast and address it, it may lead to costly and messy structural damage to your home. One of the best ways to get rid of algae and mildew is power washing or pressure washing.
You can easily buy a power washer from your local home improvement store or you can hire a professional like A+ Pro Services Inc., which offers pressure washing services. If you do not want to hire a power washing company to remove the algae, mildew or moss because you wish to do the cleaning yourself, here are a few things you need to prepare and do.
- The task requires a power or pressure washer as well as a cleaner that is suitable for brick or siding.
- The pressure washer that you will use must have a nozzle that won’t damage the exterior wall of your house. In case you are renting or buying the Myrtle Beach pressure washing equipment, don’t forget to ask for a nozzle that’s specifically designed for this reason. The nozzle is responsible for giving it a wider spray compared to the spray that is needed when cleaning a concrete driveway for example.
- You also need to protect your plants, if you have any. Cover all shrubs, plants as well as any light fixtures that are within or close to the area where you need to power wash. To protect the light fixtures, you can cover it with a plastic bag and secure it using duct tape.
- Be sure to follow the instructions when using the pressure washer. Begin from the bottom up so that you can see what you are cleaning. You also need to use smooth strokes to avoid missing any spot. Additionally, allow the solution to set for a few minutes before rinsing it off.
In case your home has not been deeply cleaned for several years, you may have to clean it more than once. Just allow it to dry in between the pressure washing so you can make sure that all the dirt and grime have been removed. It is best to do this every fall so you can continue to protect the exterior wall of your home.
