Why Do I Need to Power Wash My House?

By in

A question we have encountered by many people over the years is, “Why do I need to pressure wash my house?” This question is usually followed by me descending into a long and complicated diatribe of pressure wash jargon explaining the terrible effects of mold and grime on your house, but, for the sake of brevity, I will keep things simple here.

Increase Your Home’s Value

In all seriousness, the main reason to keep your house clean by pressure washing is that, because your home is also probably an investment, getting your house pressure washed will increase your home’s curb appeal, and thus its value when it comes time to sell.

Give Your Home A New Look

Second to this is the fact that, since we already spend so much money trying to improve the look of our house through lawn care, decorations, additions, and more, a simple pressure washing will improve the look of your home more than any of these things will. It is, quite frankly, the most inexpensive investment you can make to increase your home’s appearance as well as its value.

Health And Safety

Finally, one more important reason to power wash your house is health. Mold and mildew circulating and collecting around your house can cause serious health problems, from allergies to infections. Getting your house washed eliminates harmful mold buildup, thereby improving the health quality of your living environment. Another, related reason is safety. Dirty, slippery surfaces are accidents waiting to happen, and a good pressure cleaning of walkways, driveways, and other areas can prevent falls from happening.

These are just a few of the many answers to the oh-so-common question, “Why do I need my house pressure washed?”
