Now is the time to tackle those home maintenance checklists you have been putting off since the fall. Spring and beautiful warm weather is upon us in Middle Tennessee and if you own a home it is time to consider checking off some much needed home maintenance from your to-do list. It may seem like the list of residential responsibilities never ends, but a little maintenance can go a long way in avoiding costly home repairs.
Pressure washing is one task you can complete yourself that will improve the look of your home as well as prevent mold and mildew from growing around the exterior. A pressure washer uses a high-powered stream of water to clean out gutters and the exterior walls of your home easily. If you do not own one, pressure washers are available to rent at many home improvement stores for the day or the weekend. However, unless you know how to use one properly, you could be spending money on an appliance that won’t get the job done. A pressure washer is a heavy piece of machinery that if not used correctly can be dangerous and inefficient, so be prepared before renting a high-powered pressure washer.
Benefits Of Pressure Washing Your Home Exterior And Gutters
There are a variety of benefits to pressure washing your home. Of course, when the dirt and debris from the long winter months is removed, your home will have an increased curb appeal, which can increase your home’s value. Nothing says spring like a beautiful home that is clean and tidy. Because of the wet winter weather we have endured, mold and mildew may have built up in the cracks of your siding, bricks or wood paneling. An expert pressure washing session can remove that easily and thoroughly to reveal a sparkling clean home exterior.
Pressure washing gutters is also recommended after winter because the process will remove leaves, sticks and other debris to free your gutters of clogs and blockages. Spring can be a rainy season in Tennessee and you want to make sure your gutters are in top shape.
