Should I Use a Pressure Washer on My New Jersey Home?

You probably don’t give too much thought about the cleanliness of the exterior of your home. You have the laundry, kids’ rooms, kitchen and your own bedroom to clean. And since you spend more time in those rooms than you do staring at the siding or brick on your home, it makes sense for those rooms to be your top priority. But if you are feeling bored with your home and you feel like it could use a facelift, pressure washing its exterior could be the perfect solution.

Don’t Neglect the Face of Your Home

Consider how much time you spend cleaning the interior of your home. Okay…how much time you wish you could spend cleaning. It’s probably a whole lot. But the inside of your home is away from all the dirt, grim, leaves and mud—how much more susceptible to getting dirty is the outside?

It’s easy to focus on cleaning the inside of your home because you see it all the time. But the exterior paint, brick or siding of your home collects dirt and grime on a daily basis. It is also the first thing people see, whether they are just driving by or coming for a visit. Put your best foot forward by investing in pressure washing your home. Not only will it help beautify your home, but it can also help the exterior surface and outdoor paint last longer.

Pressure Washing Can be Tricky

If you do want to clean off years of build-up from your home, then you may decide to go the DIY route with pressure washing. It may seem like all you need to do is buy a pressure washer and aim it at the house. How hard could it be, right? Unfortunately, pressure washing a home can be a bit tougher than you might imagine. First you need to make sure you get the right equipment. There are quite a few different types of pressure washers and each one serves a different purpose depending on what you plan on washing. For instance, a boat would need a unit with different features than a home would.

It’s also important to know how to use the washer before you aim it at your house. If used incorrectly, you could damage the exterior paint. Your home’s exterior will determine the technique you use to pressure wash your home. For instance, if you are washing siding panels that overlap then you should avoid spraying the bottom edges of the panels and instead work across the topmost panel to the one it overlays. These techniques can you help preserve the quality of your home’s exterior as well as the outdoor paint.

If you’ve tried to pressure wash your home and found it to be incredibly difficult or if you just don’t want to deal with the hassle, we have general contractors who can handle this task for you. Just give us a call at Spectrum Painting and one of our general contractors will come to your home and leave it looking like a brand new house.

Your professional workers just left and like the last time I am refreshingly amazingly Happy!! I wish I could afford to tip them! I told them in a world where everyone is out for themselves it is heartwarming to meet people of honest quality who do a perfect job with smiles on their faces. They go beyond my expectations. This time I asked them to caulk a hole in a wall that they did not paint. They not only caulked it for me - they found the paint and painted the spot for me! I am so proud of your company and thank you very much.
