5 Reasons You Should Power Wash Your Home or Business

Power washing your home or business may not seem like a priority. With everything else you need to do or pay for, cleaning the exterior of your property just doesn’t seem as important. The problem is that you can’t see the real damage that is occurring under all of that filth

#1: It Decays Your Roof

Most shingle roof are made to last between 25 to 30 years. Tiles roof live expectations are over 30 years. If you want to maintain your roof during all those years the only way to achieve it is by providing them the right maintenance. Otherwise, you will have to spend thousands of dollars replacing them ahead of time. Some microorganisms like black stains, algae, mold, mild, mildew, moss, and lichens are constantly destroying your roof. You can notice this process when your roof gets darker in some areas. You can also notice that the eaves, fascia, and gutters get an ugly stain with a color similar to the roof, and when you find shingle grains in the driveway, pool deck, and close from the downspout area. The tiles roof are not the exception. Although they are made of a more durable material, if they are not properly maintained they will get darker and will absorb more sun light causing more heat in the interior of the house or business. As a result, the use of the air conditioner will increase, and your electricity or gas bill will go up too. In addition, the tiles paint will come out easily. It is recommended that you clean your roof at least once every five years. So, if your roof has not been cleaned during the last five years, it is time to do so. Do not wait until it gets too late!!! Many costumers have the wrong perception that it is too expensive to clean a roof. If you do the right analysis you will find out that it is really cheap. It is a fact that the prices varies from place to place, but if you divide the amount of money that you pay between five years, you will find out that you are really paying a few dollars per year to extend the life of your roof , the value of your property, and its beauty. In reality, the cost to maintain a roof is not an expense, it is an investment.

#2: It Eats Away at the Exterior

Moss does the same as algae, but it’s more aggressive because it contains more moisture. Moss can grow on the roof and on the sides of your home or business. The longer you allow it to sit, the more damage occurs. Before you know it, you could have weak areas or holes hidden by the moss. If you do not take care of the moss as soon as possible, there is no doubt that you will have to spend a lot of money in something that could be removed for a few dollars.

#3: It Affects Your Health

Mold can live on just about any surface of your home or business – wood, paper, and drywall. Black mold is the worst one because it can get into your body and cause allergic reactions. Not only that, prolonged exposure can lead to serious respiratory illnesses.

#4: Makes Your Home or Business Smell Bad

Mildew and mold produce a smell that can be detected several feet from your home. Neighbors, guests, costumers, employees and even you will be able to smell it after a while. You don’t want that ruining the experience of your living or working area. A clean house and business is a nice smelling one, and that includes the inside and outside of it.

#5: Your Home or Business Doesn’t Look Nice

You’ve probably noticed the black streaks on your roof or the dark patches on the sides of your property. They do not look nice, and that can ruin your curb appeal. This curb appeal isn’t just important for when you’re selling your real estate, it matters when you’re still living in it. You want your home or business to look nice for your guests, costumers, and for yourself when you come home or work every day. The longer you wait to have your property power washed, the worse it will look and the more you’ll hate to look at it. The only way to prevent algae, mold, and mildew from causing damage to the exterior of your home is with power washing. It should be done at least once a year.
