Does Pressure Washing Help Keep Bugs Away? 

The maintenance of your home or property is very important. Whether you are a homeowner or a property owner with multiple rental homes. Exterior care can prevent the damage that growth or infestation of insects and bugs can cause. 

The outside of your home can attract many types of insects. If you have never pressure washed your home or have not pressure washed your home in a very long time. Then this is the perfect atmosphere for various bugs and insects to start nestling into the nooks and crannies of your home. Some of them may even begin to build nests and lay eggs which can lead to a potential infestation inside and outside your home. Your home may even begin to develop a smell that lingers due to certain types of insects and the only way to get rid of it is to clean the outside of your home. 

What Insects Are More Common To Be Found On Homes

The most common bugs and insects that are found on the exterior of  homes that have not been pressured washed are: 

  • Stinkbugs
  • Cockroaches
  • Ladybugs
  • Ants 
  • Beetles
  • Centipedes
  • And many more

Your unpressured washed home can also attract wasps and bees as well. 


Prevent these insects from becoming a problem and have to pay for exterminators to come and treat your home with chemicals by getting your home professionally power washed. It is a great investment in the long run for the care of your home. 

Benefits Of Power Washing Your Home

Having your residence professionally power washed will help with any potential problems with bugs going into your home. Dealing with bugs in the home can be frustrating and at times costly. Yearly pressure washing can keep the creepy crawlers at bay. 


An added benefit of maintaining the outside of your home is that it also gets rid of all the dirt and grime that accumulates from differing weather conditions. Getting a pressure wash can also help with the prevention of mold and mildew, and with any odors that some bugs leave behind. 


The biggest bonus is you will be protecting the value of your home. The interior of your home is not the only part of importance. The outside is what everyone sees first so why not care for it. 

What Is Pressure Washing

It is a method of cleaning with high pressure, water (sometimes hot, sometimes cold), and at times a cleaning solution. The machines can clean brick, siding, and so much more. 

Do not neglect the outside of your home, add it to your list of yearly cleaning projects. This will help get rid of any existing infestations. Professional power washing can make your home look like new.
