When it comes to pressure cleaning the outside of a home and the other structures on the property, most people assume they do not need regular cleanings. Pressure cleaning is only useful when you need to repaint the exterior of the home or refinish a deck, right? Actually, the entire property greatly benefits from routine pressure cleaning and it should be done regularly. For those who want to prevent exterior damages and maintain a beautiful home, Big Moose Pressure Cleaning would like to share how often you should have your home pressured cleaned.
Local Climate, Season & Weather Affects How Often Home Should Be Washed
Let’s talk about Georgia’s climate and how it can affect your home. Georgia has a humid subtropical climate where we have short winters and long, hot, humid summers. During the summer, a home can develop a number of problems such as the roof and siding of home often developing mold, moss and lichens. These organisms that thrive due to our climate can lead to exterior damages and degrade the roof of your home. It is very important to keep these organisms in check. If they overtake your home and its roof, they can lead to many damages not just outside but inside your home as well. Moss, lichens and mold can develop very quickly depending on how humid the summer season is. To keep moss, lichens and mold in check. it is often recommended that you have your home pressure cleaned keep every one to two years. Depending on the home’s exposure, you may need pressure cleaning every six months. If you see the development of moss, lichens or mold on your home’s roof along the side or on other exterior structures, it is time for pressured cleaning.
Wood & Brick Needs Exterior Cleaning More Often than Stucco & Vinyl Siding
A home’s exterior material can range from brick to wood, stucco, aluminum, and vinyl. The material used for the home’s exterior will also determine how often you should have the home pressured cleaned. It is important to protect the home from moss, lichens, mold, pests and dirt. Certain surfaces will be more prone to certain elements than will others and will need to be cleaned more often. Stucco is durable and resistant to moisture. Often a stucco home can go longer in between pressure cleanings. On the other hand, wood or brick can erode or decay if it is not properly cared for. Vinyl is also water resistant and can withstand the elements longer. You will need to determine the materials used for your home and find the right timing for pressure cleaning to protect and extend the life of the home exterior materials.
