WHEN SHOULD I PRESSURE WASH MY HOME?
We want to express is the importance and value for you to maintain your exterior paint. As the owner, you’re probably well aware when the exterior looks dirty but usually it has been noticed by other already. Here at Carolina Painting and Pressure Cleaning, we can’t stress the importance of a soft washing your home or business. As homeowners or business owners, you should wash the new paint each year after our painters depart from your property. Here are some exterior maintenance tips to keep you paint job last for years to come.
SOFT WASH AFTER SEASONS
While it doesn’t get too snowy down here in South Carolina, we do get a good amount of rain. Dust and dirt from the storms and rain could leave unsightly marks on your home, making it look grimy. Before the dirt has a chance to stick and stain the paint, make sure to wash down the exterior. Usually, if you’re diligent, a quick power washing with the hose will do the trick. Sometimes, if you wait, you may have to use some sudsy water to get out the tougher spots. Cleaning between seasons is going to be your best bet to maintain your exterior and having a spick and span home or business.
ANNUAL PROFESSIONAL SOFT WASHING
Usually, dirt will invade the exterior of your home regardless of how well you maintain it. Therefore, it’s best to schedule regular soft washing treatments. Soft washing removes dirt, dust, and mildew, giving it the clean look it had when it was first painted. Most exterior paint is durable, to withstand the elements, but they still get dirty. Soft pressure washing is safe for all homes and will make the paint look fresh rather than run down. For a consultation on pressure washing, please contact us today.
For the areas that still look worn down after being washed, you may want to consider a touch up. Instead of the entire home, you may just be able to touch up. Contact Carolina Painting and Pressure Cleaning to schedule a general touch-up. Your home is your home and you want it to look good for years to come.
WHAT IF MY HOUSE WON’T CLEAN UP?
Unfortunately, if your home is on the older side, you might just need to have it repainted. Sometimes, even if you regularly clean it, it might still continue to look run down. If your home is showing signs of mildew a few months after it is washed, it is probably time to paint. A professional exterior paint job could make it look great for years to come. We can give you a detailed estimate if you want to schedule an estimate from our Estimate Calendar.
