In the long run, it is going to keep your home looking sharp, free of damage, and your family healthy.
Let’s Start at the Top: Shingles and Roofing
In Florida’s humid and rainy weather lichen, moss and algae can grow on your shingles. Areas of your home that do not see a lot of sun, or are on the north side of your home, provide the perfect moist environment these plants need to grow. Once these plants take root they become like sponges, holding moisture and destructively sending down roots. Tall trees can drop sap on your roof causing unsightly stains your roof.
An unblemished roof that’s free from plant growth and debris makes a huge difference in the look of your home. A clean and maintained roof will keep your home dry and prevent water damage. A soft washing with growth inhibitors can keep plant material from growing on your roof. A high-pressure power washing is not recommended for roofing as it can cause damage to it.
Your Siding, Deck or Patio Area
Power washing the exterior of your home can keep your home looking beautiful and well maintained. Mold, mildew, and algae like to grow on the side of your home. Pollen, dust, and grime can stick to the siding causing your home to look dirty and dingy. A power wash will bring back that fresh, clean look that it was meant to have. And as long as you’re getting the siding cleaned, clean any windows, especially second story ones, too.
Power washing of your deck can keep it looking fresh, and a high power washing can strip it of old dirt and loose paint, and get it ready for a new coat of weatherproofing or paint. Keeping the wood of your deck protected will keep it from deteriorating and rotting at a rapid rate. Power washing can make quick work of cleaning up your furniture. When everything looks clean and fresh you’ll want to spend even more time in the beautiful Florida sunshine!
Roll Out the Welcome Mat
You want your home to be a place that makes others feel welcome and glad they came. The first thing visitors see is the driveway, sidewalk, and steps. Concrete and brick can develop dark, dirty looking stains. Power washing can clean all that away, leaving the concrete looking clean, neat and new again.
