Five Reasons You Should Pressure Wash
Why do I need to pressure wash my property on a regular basis? This should be the first question you ask yourself when you consider hiring a professional pressure washer. In this article we plan on talking about a few of the many reasons why a regularly scheduled cleaning is essential in the maintenance of your home and why doing so can save you money in the long run.
The obvious answer to the question of why you should pressure wash your property is appearance. Why should the appearance of your home matter? We believe that a well maintained home gives a sense of pride and well-being which in turn leads to a happier life overall. It can even spread throughout your neighborhood making your community a better place to live.
Letting your driveway and sidewalks turn green and black is one thing but we have seen algae grow so thick it looks like a shag rug. When that gets wet you might as well be on an ice skating rink. On average a slip and fall lawsuit will cost you $50,000 with an average judgement, if you loose, is $100,000. A great reason to spend a little now!
Most people don't realize that when you let algae and dirt sit on any surface, especially wood, it can damage it. The algae and the moisture it feeds can damage the structural integrity of the wood causing you to need to replace part or all of it costing you thousands of dollars.
Your home's value depends partly on curb appeal. We've read that curb appeal can add anywhere from 3% to 5% to the value of your home! That's $9,000 to $15,000 on a $300,000 home! That is a pretty good return on investment!
Believe it or not your HOA actually has your best interest in mind. The HOA is in place to protect your neighborhood's overall appearance which in turn increases your property value. Admittedly, some HOAs can get a little out of control depending on who is running them but overall they can be a useful tool. It only takes one badly maintained home to bring down the value of your entire subdivision.
That's five good reasons why pressure washing your property is important. Hiring the right pressure washing company is the next step and we will help you with that in our next article. Another important point is that typically when you become a regular customer and your property doesn't get out of control between cleanings you get a better rate. In some cases as much as 50% less than if you only clean your property every few years, turning an all day cleaning into a much shorter job.
