Your home’s curb appeal

You clean your house weekly, mop the floors, dust and wipe off the furniture, clean the bathrooms and other things to make your house a home to you.  Ah, the feeling and smell of a clean home.

And, then there is the exterior, mow the lawn, trim the hedges, mulch for the flower gardens…

Wait! What about the exterior of the home?  What about the mold, algae, mildew, and just plain dirt that collects on the exterior of our homes, walkways, driveway, and the deck….. The exterior needs a cleaning, too. Whether your just wanting to improve the exterior of your home’s appearance or getting it ready to sell, power washing your home is a must. 

Benefits of Power Washing
Increases Home Value: Power Washing is considered to be the most affordable way to increase your home’s value. According to the National Association of Realtors, a pressure washed home can add $10,000-$15,000 to the sale price. 

Improves Curb Appeal: Your home’s curb appeal is important, especially if you are thinking about selling your home. Power Washing your home removes stains and mildew that can make a home look unattractive, stalling a prospective home buyer from putting in an offer. 

It’s Considered Preventative Maintenance: Regularly scheduled Power Washings are great ways to save money on costly exterior home repairs. Keeping your home clean hinders rot, decay and premature aging of the home; it also extends the life of your siding, walkways, driveway, deck and even your roof. 

Protects Your Family: Your home is also the home to a variety of different contaminants, such as dirt, mold, mildew and algae – some of which can be life-threatening. Power Washing not only your home but your driveway, walkway, and deck can help prevent mold, mildew and algae from growing and prevent injuries caused by slipping and falling.

Along with the benefits of Power Washing your home also comes the responsibility of hiring a professional.  Yes, you can pressure wash on your own but, a pressure washer is a dangerous machine.  Great personal injury and property damage can occur by the untrained user.  Plus, professional equipment and a professional operator is much more efficient and cost effective than home equipment. 

As noted, the term Power Washing has been used in this article.  There is a reason!  A Power Washing company is a professional and educated in the field.  Also, being a Power Washing company means that the job is looked at as pressure specific, meaning applying the correct pressure from the equipment to do the job and not damage it. A Power Washer company will be a member of a national organization such as UAMCC in which they receive continuing education and training. Ron Musgraves, Executive Director of UAMCC quotes, “A sincere power washing company is a steward of the environment and protector of the client’s property.” A statement that Todd Reese, Owner of Georgia Power Washing holds dear to his heart! Most of all, when you hire a professional, have them show you their Certificate of Insurance. This is your protection that if any damage occurs, it will be covered and repaired properly!
