3 Ways to Protect Your Landscaping During Power Washing, Milford city, Connecticut

Your house’s exterior is responsible for your guests’ first impression of your home. If you want to keep your landscaping looking its best, power washing may be in order. By taking these precautions, you can guarantee that your landscaping will look even better after a power wash than it did before.

Power Washing Precautions

1. Thoroughly Water Plants First

Water your plants before power washing them. You can do this the night before or immediately before you begin work. Watering your plants ahead of time will allow them to absorb clean water and make them less likely to absorb any dirty water that runs off.  The clean water will also help to dilute any of the chemicals used in the power wash.

2. Move & Cover

This will protect any debris, grime, or paint chips from falling into the plants and being absorbed in the soil. Power washing residue that falls directly onto the plants can be difficult to remove.

3. Rinse After Power Washing

Even if your plants were covered during the power washing, make sure to rinse them with clean water afterward. Rinsing your plants will ensure that even the tiniest debris gets removed. If it’s an especially hot day, you can ask the contractor to provide time to hydrate the plants, as needed.
