With warmer weather on its way, you’ll want to get your home ready. One way to do it is to power wash the outside.

This article shows you how power washing can bring the luster back to your home’s exterior, including the driveway. Read on for tips to help your home look its best this summer.

Power Wash Your Way to Summer Fun

Can You Power Wash Siding?

If you’ve never done it, you might wonder if it’s possible to pressure wash your home’s exterior. The experts at A Brilliant Solution say, “yes, but use caution.”

Each material used to cover a house requires specific pressure washing tools and techniques. Here in New Jersey, the most common types of siding for residential structures are:

  • Engineered wood
  • Vinyl
  • Aluminum

They’re all three strong and durable and hold up well under New Jersey’s weather.

The mistake many homeowners make when they use a pressure washer on siding is setting the water pressure too high.

It’s an innocent error that could cost you dearly because you risk forcing water underneath the siding panels. If that happens, you could damage the siding’s finish.

For the exterior of your home, consider soft pressure washing.

Power Washing the Driveway

The exterior of your home isn’t the only thing that needs brightening up. Don’t forget your driveway!

If you’re like most folks, the driveway is where it happens during the summer. You set up the family BBQ in the garage, and the fun spills out onto the driveway.

Your driveway takes a beating year-round. In the winter, you sprinkle salt, which creates ugly stains. Grime and debris build up in the cracks making the outside of your home look unkempt.

Did you know you can erase several years’ worth of wear and tear by power washing the driveway and walkways?

Most professionals suggest homeowners pressure wash the driveway at least once a year.

Pressure Washing Landscape Features

Oh, and let’s not forget those statues, fountains, garden plants and other items that beautify your landscape. After a long winter, they can be dirty and dingy and therefore deserve a good cleaning as well. So let’s not forget them.

Is Pressure Washing a DIY Project?

That’s a great question! The average homeowner can handle using a pressure washer. The problem is that most don’t use the machine correctly.

It’s easy to set the pressure too high and use the wrong-size nozzle. Using higher pressure than needed puts a person at risk of injury.

Sometimes DIYers don’t use the proper cleaning solutions, which makes the job take longer and doesn’t get the surfaces they’re washing clean enough.

With all due respect to the weekend warriors out there, it’s better to let a professional power washing company tackle the project.

You’ll save time, money, and the appearance of your home. You’ll also stay safe!
