What Are The Benefits Of Pressure Washing?

Pressure washing is a really common way to clean the outside parts of your home (your walls, deck, patio, fences, driveway, etc.). But have you ever thought about why it’s so popular?

Pressure washing (a.k.a. power washing) is the practice of washing away dirt from surfaces using a high-pressure stream of water. This is a really effective way to clean and it has a great many benefits for homeowners.

We’re huge fans of pressure washing so, in today’s blog, we’re going to be looking at 5 major pressure washing benefits of having your home exterior pressure washed. 

Maintain and increase your home’s value

We’ve talked about this on our website before, but having your home pressure washed can add up to $15,000 to its value.

That’s an amazing figure and is testimony to the power of pressure washing! Are you trying to sell your home? Having the exterior of your home professionally pressure washed could be a great option for you.

Also, pressure washing is an integral part of home maintenance and not only adds value, but helps prevent the deterioration of your outdoor spaces, such as your fences.

Prevent accidents at home

Build up on your outdoor surfaces can be super hazardous. Slips, trips, and falls outdoors are much less likely if your deck, patio, or driveway are grime-free.

Environmentally conscious

It might come as a surprise, but pressure washing actually uses around 75% less water than other popular cleaning methods. This is because the strong force created by power washers has a bigger effect without using as much water.

Reduce allergies

The dirt and debris that accumulates on the outside of your home and in your yard can actually cause allergies. Two of the most common culprits are pollen and ragweed. Having your home exteriors thoroughly cleaned with pressure washing can really reduce the likelihood that you and your household will experience allergies around the home.
