Everything You Need to Know About Home Washing

External weather conditions and lovely Mother Nature often do damage on your once spotless home. Excessive rain can cause moisture for fungi and other harmful plant-like protists, such as algae and lichen to feed and grow on the sides of your home. These unappealing intruders can upset the beautiful balance of any home or neighborhood. So what is the solution to a dirty house?

All homes can benefit from a routine cleaning to remove all of the mold, fungi and dirt from the siding. If you live in an area with heavy storms, winds may carry more leaves and dirt to the sides of your home. If you live in a more humid region, the damp surroundings may also attract more mold and mildew. Because of these external factors, the frequency of house washing differs between region and climate, but for the most part you should look into washing your home every one to two years.

While most homeowners seek out professional opinions and solutions on the Internet regarding how to properly wash their home, it is important to make sure you choose the best option for your individual house. High pressure washing may seem like the most effective and quickest method to get your home back to new, but most of the time it can cause permanent damage. Not all surfaces can handle the intensity of a pressure washer. Often times, power washers can loosen caulk, strip paint, and seep through cracks and hinges resulting in an accumulation of moisture, a feeding ground for molds and mildews. These high pressure washers should be avoided if at all possible.

When deciding the best method for washing your home, it is important to start with the most gentle approach first. Pressure Brothers offers a safe pressure washing process that eliminates the possibility of potential damage. We have adopted our own method of low pressure washing, "soft washing", to ensure the safety of your home’s condition.
