Pressure Washing: Boosting Curb Appeal After Winter

Winter can do a number on your home’s curb appeal. Obviously, harsh weather can allow grime and dirt to accumulate on the various areas of your home’s exteriors. However, even when a winter is relatively mild, the cold weather will have naturally prevented you from cleaning your property thoroughly. This gives mildew, algae, and other contaminants the perfect opportunity to accumulate.

That’s why you need to coordinate with pressure washing experts when spring arrives. We at Softwash Ranger, serving homeowners throughout the Montclair, NJ area, will gladly help you improve your home’s appearance in the following key ways.

Why Pressure Washing is the Ideal Way to Boost Your Home’s Post-Winter Curb Appeal

There are many natural reasons you may wish to improve your home’s curb appeal after winter is over. One is the simple fact that most homeowners tend to be happier with their properties when they look their best.

There is in fact scientific evidence to support this idea. Research has shown people are happier in clean environments. You’ll feel much less stressed on your own property if it looks appealing.

You also want to feel proud of your home. Montclair, NJ is a beautiful place in which to live, and no homeowner wants their property to be the local eyesore.

It’s also worth noting that spring tends to be the most popular time of year to sell a house. Perhaps you’re planning on selling your home this season. You’ll be more likely to get a good offer for it if it looks impressive.

These are all good reasons to schedule service with pressure washing experts this season. Once again, winter gives many organisms and contaminants plenty of time to accumulate throughout your property. Along with building up on your siding and roofing, they will also have accumulated on your hardscapes and related surfaces. The overall effect significantly reduces your home’s curb appeal.

It’s worth noting that it can also pose a safety hazard. All that algae on your hardscapes will get slippery if it’s exposed to rain. Naturally, that means anyone walking on those surfaces could easily slip. That’s a risk you don’t want to take.

It’s also a risk you don’t have to take. Pressure washing can thoroughly remove these organisms from your driveway, walkways, and related areas. Because the contaminants that accumulate on these surfaces tend to get compacted in winter, this is the ideal method for cleaning them. Other methods will fail to yield thorough results.

Pressure washing can also remove grime from your patio, deck, fence, and in some cases, your siding. Best of all, it does so efficiently, ensuring your home’s curb appeal is restored sooner rather than later.

Just keep in mind that you shouldn’t try to handle these tasks on your own. If you don’t have professional experience using pressure washing equipment, there’s a chance you’ll injure yourself or someone else by using the equipment improperly. You also might not know what steps you must take to ensure your exterior surfaces are thoroughly cleaned. You’re better off coordinating with professionals.

Experts can also determine when pressure washing isn’t the best method for a given task. As our name implies, we at Softwash Ranger employ a gentle but effective soft wash method when a surface’s material isn’t durable enough to sustain high pressure. This allows you to clean your property without damaging it.
