Why should I Power wash my house?

Tribble Painting - Saturday, July 25, 2015

Mildew, fungus, alge attacks the substrate which means the surface/ paint. The paint surface is like the skin to your body...

It protects the house. And once that takes hold the paint can start to deteriorate and can affect the life of the paint. By powerwashing each year it can prolong the life of the paint job and not have to paint as often.Below are a few FAQ's our clients have asked.

How often should I powerwash my house?

We recommend powerwashing every year and paint every 7.

What are the benefits of powerwashing? 

1. Cleans your decks, the exterior of your house, or your front walkway more than just taking a hose to it. 

2. Great results when used properly. 

3. Powerful enough not to have to use a ladder for the hard to reach places.

4. Gets rid of bugs, dirt, and other bateria that might have formed on your house or deck.

Planning on powerwashing yourself, keep in mind these few tips.

Decks and Fences:  Keep the tip of the power washer 6 – 10 inches from the wood surfaces at all times.  Always keep the spray moving; never hold it one place as it will fur the wood surface.

Vinyl Siding:  Rinse from the top down.  Keep the tip of the power washer 1 – 2 feet from the siding. Rinse perpendicular to the siding when possible.
