How Often Should I Get My House Washed?

However, the best way to determine if your home needs pressure washing to simply keep an eye on the state of your exteriors.

This technique is a favorite of most industry professionals because it provides a deep and satisfying clean without the risk of damage to your exteriors. Our crew uses soft washing to handle jobs like house washing, roof cleaning, gutter cleaning, and more so that our customers will never have to worry about wear and tear from using water pressure that's too strong.
Why Should I Get Professional Exterior Washing Instead Of Buying A DIY Pressure Washer?
While a DIY pressure washer is fine for small projects, it's advisable to leave the majority of your exterior cleaning to pressure washing professionals. Because professional technicians are thoroughly trained and experienced in pressure washing, they know how to deliver the most precise, effective clean without damaging your exteriors. While DIY pressure washing may seem easy enough, it's far too common for inexperienced hands to damage the areas they're working on and get stuck with either an ugly blemish or an unexpected repair job. Furthermore, professional pressure washers are insured so that they're protected in case of injury. Whereas, if you sustain an injury while pressure washing your own home, you may face costly medical bills and get stuck at home recovering. Finally, professional pressure washing equipment usually runs longer than rentals from big box stores, meaning that the pros are better equipped to get large jobs done without issue.
