What Is pressure washing?
Pressure washing, also known as power washing, uses a high powered stream of water that strips away dirt, dust, and grime. Easy to do, pressure washing takes the work out of cleaning your home’s exterior. In many cases, you don’t even need a ladder.
When is the best time to pressure wash your home?
Spring is an idea time to get rid of winter build-up, but in most cases, the most effective time to clean off outside dirt from your siding is on a mild and sunny day in general. This gives the sun the chance to dry the house thoroughly. Change of seasons is also a good time to take care of that grime. By power washing your home at the end of each season, you can strip away any leftover debris and dirt, readying your house for the next season of living.

Still not sure if it’s time for a good cleaning? Here are some other tips to help you decide:
If your home is located on or near a dirt road, you may need to pressure wash your house every few months (especially during dry periods).
If your home is located near a lot of trees, watch for sap build up.
After a big storm: high winds can bring in more dirt and debris, causing your home to look dirtier.
When the weather is rainy or hot and humid. Rain is full of dirt, which can leave your house looking dull. Also, hot and humid weather can make the exterior of your house more susceptible to mold and mildew growth. Watch for signs of both and pressure wash as soon as you notice any mold growth.
