Very often, they tout the same information but offer alternative ways to remodel the home by using different materials as well as colors. The subject most often overlooked, is the importance of having your home cleaned both inside and out, as a critical yet less expensive alternative to new kitchens, baths, pools, landscaping, tiles, painting, and home additions.
Pressure washing is much cheaper than other home improvements. It is also a way of immediately increasing your home’s curb appeal and marketability. These two simply mean that home pressure cleaning also increases your home’s value.
It is has been said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Well, it is also said, that cleanliness is next to godliness – a little trivia — this phrase was first recorded in a sermon by John Wesley in 1778, but is found in ancient Babylonian and Hebrew religious tracts.
So Why Does Pressure Cleaning Increase Home Values?
As already mentioned, a pressure washed home has more curb appeal. In other words, the buyer, or home appraiser, sees a freshly cleaned home as more attractive, and in better condition. Also, a dirty home appears to be neglected beyond just being in need of cleaning.
Have you seen a roof with dark marks, black streaks, mold, mildew, and/or lichens?
The roof looks like it is in need of roof repair or complete roof replacement. Roof repair can cost thousands of dollars. While a roof replacement can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Both of these spell disaster for home values. The great part is oftentimes, the dirty roof with black streaks, lichens, mold, and mildew can be made to look like new with a soft-roof washing technique.
Soft roof washing is a process of gently spraying your roof with a cleaning solution and then allowing it to soak into your roof, be it asphalt, shingle, tile, or cedar roof. Afterward, water is gently sprayed on top of your roof washing away the mold, mildew, lichens, and moss. This process continues to clean your roof over the coming days as the cleaning solution is never fully washed away. So days later, your roof looks cleaner than the first day it was washed.
“Besides roof washing, you should pressure wash your house, siding, deck, patio, walkways, stairs, fencing, walls, driveway, garage, backyard, sideyard and stone, bricks, and pavers. If you want a home that is more enjoyable, clean, has more curb appeal and value.”
