We get that question a lot, and honestly it depends. Your home is susceptible to numerous types of damage, especially living in Florida. After weather events, such as rain and wind, your home can tend to look dirty and worn. This is where pressure washing comes in.
When you see stains on your walkway, patio, roof, driveway or home, it isn’t easy to scrub those areas clean. Pressure washing does this much more effectively and efficiently. It’s one of the simplest things you can do to spruce up the appearance of your home.
How frequently you have your home and exterior areas pressure washed depends on the weather and other environmental factors. Such as:
- If it’s been very rainy, chances are you will need to have your home pressure washed more often than times when it doesn’t rain as much.
- Months where there is high humidity. Humidity and moisture cause mold and mildew to grow. There are times of the year where this is more common.
- If your home or driveway is covered by trees. This tree cover produces shade, which allows mold and mildew to grow at a more rapid pace.
- An abundance of windy rain or thunderstorms will not only add mold and mildew, but dirt and debris as well.
Any of these factors will speed up the time between pressure washings. But it is important not to overlook these things. Keeping mold and mildew on your house and roof not only makes it ugly in appearance, but it is wearing down on the materials that keep you and your family safe. It is much less expensive to power wash a home than it is to replace a roof or siding. When left untreated, these things are possibilities.
Power washing your home not only keeps it beautiful, but it can prolong its life, and keep mold and allergens from coming inside your home potentially making you and your family sick. Power washing should be included as regular home maintenance. To get a free estimate, call (941) 322-0550 or visit us online.
