Benefits Of Power Washing Your House In Vancouver British Columbia
By Jordan Shaw
Power washing your house can have many benefits such as improving the curb appeal of your home to even improving the perceived value of your home if you plan on selling it. In a world of bidding wars for homes, washing your home can mean an increase in value by significant amounts.
In this short presentation, we will cover a few of the benefits of power washing your house.
Before we begin, it is important to mention that when it comes to “Power washing” your house, high pressure is never a good option. Pressure washing your house with high pressure can cause damage and push water into unwanted places causing thousands of dollars in damage.
Instead of washing your home with high pressure, we recommend a process known as soft washing. Soft washing is simply the process of using safe cleaning solutions to bring the siding back to its original look rather than relying on dangerous high-pressure washing.
Now that we’re gotten that out of the way, let’s get into it!
Benefit #1: Increase the Curb Appeal of Your Home
Have you ever experienced the feeling of an unexpected guest that came over and your home wasn’t as clean as it normally is? Of course, you have, as most people have experienced this in the past. Everyone loves having a clean and tidy house when they have family over for BBQ’s. No one wants a dirty home when guests come over to visit.
This is one of the biggest problems with algae and other organic materials that grow on the siding of your home. Your home is your biggest asset, one of the most important possessions that you own, it represents you and your family. You keep the inside of your home cleaned for visitors, it makes sense to also keep the outside of your home cleaned!
Benefit #2: Remove the health hazard presented by the airborne algae
If you have a deck or a patio and you regularly enjoy sitting outside with your family, did you know that the unsightly green algae growing on your siding and deck is also airborne? You’re breathing it in every time you sit on your deck or spend time around the exterior of your home!
The reason we love our soft washing solution so much more than pressure washing is that our solution actually sanitizes your siding, decks, and patios rather than just removing what you can see. This means that the algae is removed and will stay removed for a much longer period of time.
Benefit #3: Increase the Perceived Value of your home
If you walked by a suitcase full of 100’s you wouldn’t turn a blind eye.
When you plan on putting your house on the market it is a very good idea to do everything you can to increase the value of your home in order to maximize the price. Power washing and exterior cleaning are some of the cheapest solutions available to you that will have the biggest price increase for your home.
First impressions are everything! You wouldn’t want a prospective buyer to be turned away from your home simply because the first impression is covered with green algae and cobwebs. A quick soft wash is something that can easily and affordably solve this problem.
So as you can see, cleaning your home’s siding has many more benefits than just the looks! It can improve the value of your home and the health and safety of your loved ones.
