Painting Contractor Reveals 5 Items You Should Power Wash February 22, 2018

Painting Contractor Reveals 5 Items You Should Power Wash, Duvall, Washington

Homeowners try to keep the inside of their houses clean, but what about the outside? Maintaining your curb appeal takes more than trimming your hedges. To this end, power washers are an overlooked resource, as many worry about their capacity to damage paint. The experts at Max House Painting in King, WA, explain that there is a range of items that can withstand the pressure. Here, the painting contractors discuss five common outdoor areas you can use a power washer on.

5 Areas That Can Be Power-Washed

1. Decks & Porches

Families often spend a lot of time on decks and porches, especially during the summer, so you want to keep them in good shape. Neglecting maintenance can lead to mildew and mold growth, which compromises the integrity of the structure. Deck and porch repairs and replacements are costly, so have them washed down annually.

2. Exterior Siding

Your home is exposed to the elements all year round. High humidity and rough weather can lead to fungus, algae, moss, dust, and dirt affecting your siding. Not only is it bad for your structure—and your allergies—but they also make your home look run down. Power washing will effectively clean the build-up without spoiling your paint job.

3. Outdoor Furniture

painting contractorMany people leave their yard and deck furniture out all winter. However, over the course of the seasons, they become grimy from exposure to the elements. Once your family is ready to use them in the summer, these pieces are likely unsanitary and have become home to spiders and insects during their disuse. It’s best to power-wash your outdoor furniture around mid-spring before you start using it again.

4. Fencing

If your house has wooden or vinyl fencing, a good yearly power washing will serve it well. They can grow mold, rot, rust, and peel over the years if left untreated. They’re the first part of your home people see when passing by or coming in, so keep them looking sturdy and clean.

5. Garage Doors

Dirt and grime can build up on your garage door, especially during the winter and spring. As with exterior siding, it’s less common for owners to regularly clean. However, to freshen your house from the inside out, a seasonal washing will keep it looking like new.
