When you put your home on the market, you want it to look as appealing as possible so it has a good chance of selling fast. However, you also want to spend your money wisely when it comes to improving the curb appeal of your home. Pressure washing might be the solution. Here are three ways a pressure washing service can help get your home ready for the market.
1. Clean The Driveway And Walkway
Whether you have a concrete driveway or pavers, the pressure washing service can get rid of built-up dirt and stains. The service might use a wand with a wide spray or a round surface cleaner on the driveway and around your entry door. The pressure of the water can clean the concrete and make it look fresh and new.
The service can wash and restore the appearance of your patio slab in the same way. Instead of a slab covered in dirt and other stains, the concrete will be clean and fresh. This shows potential buyers you took good care of your home.
2. Wash Your House And Roof
Nearly all parts of your house can be pressure washed since the operator can control the pressure used for different surfaces. Vinyl, aluminum, brick, and stucco can be pressure washed, but they require different amounts of pressure to avoid damage.
The service can wash your roof if it's needed and even wash the windows on a low pressure. Pressure washing gets rid of dirt, stains from pollution, algae, and other stains and growths on gutters, the roof, siding, and around the foundation. You may find you don't even need to paint your house once it's been pressure washed, but if you do want to paint it, you'll have a clean surface so the paint will adhere better.
3. Restore Your Fence
You can have most types of fencing pressure washed. You might need to have algae or rust stains removed from a white vinyl fence or oxidation removed from a wood fence. Pressure washing can even remove winding vines that have taken over a chain link fence.
Pressure washing a wood fence requires low pressures so the wood isn't damaged. The force of the water removes the gray layer of oxidation on a wood fence so the original color of the wood is restored. Having a clean fence that looks like new can make your property more attractive to home buyers.
By having your home, driveway, and fence pressure washed, the curb appeal of your home will be improved, and you'll save a lot of money over painting and putting in a new fence.
