Softwashing is better than pressure washing.
Soft washing is an important aspect of your overall home maintenance upkeep. It’s one of the most common ways people are losing value in their home and most people don’t even know it. Life gets busy and we tend to focus on other things. This article explains why exterior cleaning can be a game-changer for your property!
The exterior of our homes (or businesses for that matter) sometimes goes unnoticed but it can be an eye-sore for those passing by. It can also be a health hazard, as your exterior can fall victim to mold, mildew, and dangerous bacteria. Most exterior cleaning treatments also include treatments that help preserve the quality of the property as well. Soft washing your property gives you only a better-looking home, more value, and safety.
Here is why washing your home or business is important:
It Preserves the Value of Your Home:
Owning a home or business comes with a set of exterior issues caused by environmental elements like pollution, rain, dirt, wind, and smoke (among other things). Living in Florida, we are plagued by severely hot weather. This too can wreak havoc on the exterior of your home or office.
The exterior paint of a home or business will chip or fade throughout time. This process can happen faster under certain conditions, like extremely warm weather. The Summer months tend to cause more issues w/ roofs and siding especially. Proper prevention methods should be employed to keep this problem at bay.
Soft washing clears your property of all the damage that can make it look old and worn over time and gives it that wow factor! When it comes to your home or office, looks matter. We all take pride in our homes and having a nice clean driveway or roof, so having it thoroughly cleaned can be VERY gratifying.
If left in disrepair, your property will devalue over time, which will make it harder to sell in the future. If you are selling your home one of the first things you will have to do is get everything in (and outside) of your home in working order. The better your house looks on the outside the more likely potential buyers will want to see what the inside looks like. It’s simple logic but effective! The majority of home-buyers agree that curb appeal matters.
It Keeps People Safe:
Allergens, algae, dirt, dust, and mold are all environmental factors that can cause health issues over time. You may notice more sneezing, coughing, runny noses, watery eyes, or overall tiredness if your home is exposed to any of them (inside or outside). Mold can in some extreme cases, coma, or death. Given the fact that mold allergies affect millions of Americans, this is something that one should be prepared to handle.
If mold is on the outside of your property it can transfer to your interior. Interior mold can be that much more dangerous to your family (and more costly). Soft washing solution takes care of most allergens and creates a healthier environment for your family and friends. Taking steps to prevent mold and bacteria growth on the outside of your property is a great investment for your family’s health.
It Beautifies Your Property:
When you have stains, mold, dust, or mildew on your property, it can look very unappealing. Your property should look the quality you deserve. To this, Soft washing can be your #1 answer. It not only restores your property’s exterior to its glory days but it’s sure to impress people as well.
For commercial properties, it shows customers that they are cared for. Small businesses lose money when their brick and mortar is not up to snuff, so make sure the outside of your business is just as clean as the inside.
It Prevents Permanent Property Damage:
Outside elements like dust, mold, algae, and dirt can create damage to your property over time and that’s why it’s so important to wash your exterior. When you have dirt and allergens caked on your property, it becomes hard. This in many cases starts to erode the outside of your property, thus compromising your foundation. If left unmanaged, you could be looking at thousands of dollars worth of damage and time wasted.
It Helps With Renovations:
When you are ready to renovate the exterior of your home or business, one of the first things you want to start with is pressure washing. Painting alone requires a brand-new slate to get the best appearance. Painting over muck and mud will show through and cause your home or business renovation project to lack that curb appeal so many people look for.
Soft washing can get your property renovation ready by reaching those impossible-to-reach places within the cracks and crevices where dirt and mold can build up. When it comes to a properly washed property, the details matter.
