Should You Pressure Wash Your Home This Summer?

Did you know that the frequency of your pressure washing routine is directly linked to your homes’ siding type? Or the type of climate your home is located in? There are a lot of reasons to pressure wash your house, but is summer the best time?

Summer Climate

There isn’t much of a reason to pressure wash your home before spring. Ideally, summer is the best time to pressure wash your exterior due to the end of pollen season. There’s not much of a reason to spend your money every month for a clean home when pollen is falling around everywhere!

Pressure Wash Frequency

Experts recommend keeping your pressure wash frequency to once a year or once every two years. This is because the pressure from the washer can cause possible damage to your home. However, as previously mentioned, different houses get dirty at different rates depending on weather, climate, pollution, and location. Being in a high-humidity area may cause your house to grow moss faster or for wind or sand damage if your home is located near a beach.

Regardless of where you live, it’s important to set a schedule for your pressure washing or power washing. Whether you choose to do so every six months, every year, or every two years, washing your home is a great way to keep everything sanitary and looking great. Power washing is also a great time to take stock of your home and check for needed structural or cosmetic repairs such as wood rot, paint, siding replacements, and more.
