Next Level Curb Appeal: Why House Washing Is More Than Just Aesthetics

Next Level Curb Appeal: Why House Washing Is More Than Just Aesthetics

A clean and well-maintained home not only looks aesthetically pleasing but also creates a positive impression on guests and passersby. While most homeowners pay a great deal of attention to the interiors of their homes, they often neglect the exteriors.

And who can blame them? Climbing up on ladders or renting pressure washing equipment to wash your home’s siding can get expensive and dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.

But regularly washing your home's exterior with a professional cleaning service that uses soft washing techniques has more benefits than just enhancing the curb appeal. In this post, the Clean ‘N Seal team will delve into three additional reasons why house washing is important.

1. Protect Your Home From Damage

The accumulation of dirt, grime, and mold on your home's exterior can cause substantial damage over time. The moisture from rain, snow, or even humidity can seep into cracks and crevices in the exterior, leading to rot, decay, and mold growth.

Mold growth and decay are especially common on log cabins or homes with cedar shakes and shingles, but any type of siding and roof has the potential to grow mold and mildew if not cleaned and treated occasionally.

Soft washing not only eliminates the dirt and grime buildup but also kills any mold spores that may be present, protecting your home from further damage.

2. Save Money On Future Repairs

Regular house washing eliminates the need for costly repairs that result from the damage caused by neglecting your home's exterior. When working with a professional house cleaning company, you are more likely to learn about areas of your home that need some TLC. From crumbling stucco to openings between your siding and roofline that you can’t see, an expert team will point out these issues to you and can even recommend how to repair them.

Extensive damage caused to siding, roofs, and foundations can cost thousands of dollars, but routine cleaning can potentially save you from those expensive repairs. Or catch small problems before they turn into huge hassles.

3. Improve Your Air Quality

Dust, debris, and mold spores on the exterior of your home can also easily be transferred inside your home, affecting the air quality. Whether you or your family has allergic reactions to these contaminants or not, breathing in mold, dust, and outdoor allergens is never good for your health.

While purchasing whole-home air purifiers can help the air quality in your home, simply soft washing the outside routinely eliminates these contaminants and instantly improves the air quality inside your home. Those with allergies or respiratory issues will thank you!
