Pressure Washing: Luxury or Necessity?

Pressure Washing: Luxury or Necessity?

Well, it’s no secret that we are going to try and do that here in this post! We think that a lot of folks believe that pressure washing is viewed by the general public as a way to make your house look “pretty”. That is true, but do you also know that house pressure washing removes all the mold, pollen, mildew and stains caused by years of neglect?

Protecting your home and keeping up its appearance go hand in hand. The majority of homeowners in that get their house cleaned by a pressure washing company understand that it is an important way to keep up the exterior maintenance of a home. It is important to realize that if you do not keep up with the exterior part of your home, not only will the appearance suffer, but the home will begin aging at a quicker pace than anticipated, causing you to replace siding.

House Pressure Washing, when completed to PWNA-certified industry standards, is the safest way to maintain the exterior of your home. Those standards require a low-pressure, soft-wash process that uses detergent and water volume to clean, not water pressure. The cleaning detergent includes both a mildewcide and an industrial surfactant. The mildewcide attacks organic growth like mildew, mold, and algae. The surfactant foams up slightly and acts like a rag to pull down pollen, cobwebs and loose dirt during the fresh-water rinse of all surfaces.

A great pressure washing service should include:

  1. Removal of mildew, algae, and pollen from all exterior siding, foundation brick and/or front steps, window sills and trim, gutter faces and downspouts
  2. Full, fresh-water rinse of all surfaces
  3. Pre-rinsing and post-rinsing of foundation bed plants with fresh water

At Canopy we recommend ensuring your home is protected with a great pressuring washing once a year.
