Power Washing & Window Cleaning
Hiring the right guy to power wash your home is a most or else you’ll end up having a stucco house looking like a razing track with all the marks you can create when you don’t have enough experience. Or you can blow out some siding form the house.
The frequency of pressure washing your home depends on whether your house has mildew beginning to grow. If the quality of your exterior paint is good you may not need to pressure wash until the next time you paint.
If the house mildews in the fourth or fifth year it’s because the exterior paint is breaking down. If you wash the house at this point it will only last about one year before the mildew begins to return. It’s probably a good time to think about painting again. If your house has had good paint which contains a quality mildewcide you should be able to go eight or ten years depending on the sun and shading of the house.
It is best not to pressure wash your house every year. The reason to wash a house is if it becomes dirty or has accumulated mildew. It’s a rare occurrence to have a significant accumulation of dirt unless there is new construction nearby. So mildew accumulation is generally the only reason to wash a house.
Traditionally you pressure wash your house using bleach. Sometimes you choose an additive that is designed to mix with bleach to help clean the surfaces. This process is slightly corrosive. It will break down minutely the paint film, and accelerate any potential rust almost immediately ( nail heads and galvanized gutters and other, ferrous metal surfaces.)
