Remember that new look your home had right after you replaced the siding? Remember driving up to your home after a long day at work and being pleasantly surprised about how fresh and new it looked? Over the years, dirt, mildew and other debris have likely caused that fresh, clean finish to dull and even appear a little dingy. Pressure washing can change all of that and give your home that newly-sided, new house look again.
What is pressure washing?
Pressure washing cleans the exterior of your home using directed streams of water, usually with a mild, biodegradable detergent. At Squeequee Squad, we only use low-pressure nozzles, so you don’t have to worry about damage to those delicate architectural details, stucco or painted window or door frames. Pressure washing removes chemical and other organic stains as well as dirt, mildew, mold and cobwebs.
Advantages of pressure washing your house
In addition to helping your home to look more attractive, there are a number of reasons to consider having your home power washed. Just a few of these are..
1. Extending the life of your roof and siding. If you’ve ever replaced your roof of siding, you know that these parts of your home are among the most expensive. Dirt, mold and mildew can cause your home’s exterior surfaces to age more quickly than normal and shorten the lifespan of your vinyl siding and asphalt shingles. Removing the dirt and other elements from your roof and siding can mean you won’t have to replace them for several additional years.
2. Improving curb appeal. In addition to making your home look good when guests and family visit, power washing can add to your home’s curb appeal when it comes time to put your house on the market. Potential buyers are more likely to stop at your open house or call your real estate agent for an appointment if they like what they see on the exterior of your home.
3. Eliminating airborne contaminants. That mold and mildew on the exterior of your home has the potential to travel into your living space and compromise the quality of your indoor air. This can be especially troublesome if you have very young or very old family members or people with chronic breathing issues like asthma or COPD.
4. Saving time. When you have your home professionally pressure washed, you don’t have to worry about climbing ladders or using scaffolding to clean the siding yourself. With us, your home’s exterior is cleaned in just a few hours.
What you can expect to pay for pressure washing
Each home is unique. That’s why we offer a free estimate before we begin any work on your home. However, the industry average for pressure washing a home is between $220 and $380. You can expect a two-story home to be on the higher end of this scale. We charge by the linear foot, so a larger house if going to cost more whether it’s a ranch home or a two-story home.
