The Benefits Of Exterior Power Washing
By The Wilmington Experts
Pressure washing, also called power washing, is a great first step when preparing to paint or stain the exterior of your home. You see, improperly cleaned surfaces will prevent your new paint from ‘sticking’ correctly. This causes peeling whether in large chunks or small flakes.
A professional painting company, such as Johnson Home Construction, will pressure wash the surface before apply the paint.
Power washing cleans the surfaces by removing:
- Dirt & Dust
Power washing in Wilmington, Hampstead, Surf City and Topsail Island also removes most chalking that may have taken place. Chalking is the naturally occurring breakdown of the paint’s skin surface from the sunlight’s ultraviolet rays.
Other Benefits of Exterior Power Washing
Over time, a variety of contaminants may build up on the exterior of your home and need to be removed. Besides the vinyl siding on your home, decks, fences and driveways are another aspect to your home’s exterior that benefit greatly by a full-house washing near WIlmington NC.
Decks can be power washed with bleach or deck brightener to penetrate the wood fibers. This will wash away old stains, brighten up grey wood fibers caused by foot traffic, sun and sitting water, and overall restore the look and durability of your deck.
Fences often have mildew on the surface that is caused by being a soft wood, and being so close to the ground and vegetation. For homeowners in Wilmington, Topsail Island and Jacksonville, power washing will help remove these types of mildews, and rejuvenate the look of any wood.
Driveways can be power washed in order to remove minor stains, and is usually a good way to loosen dirt and extend the life of the concrete.
