How Often Do I Need Professional Pressure Washing?

Jobs like house washing and roof cleaning can be done once a year. Removing pollen, dirt, mildew, and algae is a simple way to keep your property values high and your home beautiful.

Other tasks like gutter cleaning should be done twice a year, in the spring and autumn. Twice-yearly cleaning prevents potential clogs that lead to standing water that could freeze over winter. It also means that when heavy spring and summer storms roll in your gutters will be clear and able to carry rainwater away from your home's foundation.

Seasonal Pressure Tasks You Should Not Overlook

While you might put off cleaning your windows or your deck this year, there are a few essential areas that benefit from seasonal pressure washing that should not be ignored.

  • Roof cleaning: Yearly roof cleaning has the potential to extend the life of your shingles by 2+ years! Yearly cleaning removes leaves, dirt, and debris plus moss and algae that can trap moisture and slowly eat away at your roof.
  • Gutter Cleaning: Twice yearly gutter cleaning is important if you don't want rainwater puddling around your foundation. Clogged gutters can lead to issues like structural damage, mold and mildew growth, and foundation issues. Keeping your gutters free and clear allows rainwater to flow where it should instead of sticking around your home.
  • House Washing: While it might not seem like a big deal house washing not only keeps your property values high and creates beautiful results, but it can also help save you time and money later on. Yearly house washing helps you keep an eye on your home's siding, allowing you to spot small issues like early signs of pest infestations, cracks, or discolorations. Addressing small things before they become big expensive projects is always a good thing.
