Gutter cleaning does not impact the appearance of your home in the same way that pressure washing the siding will. (Unless of course, the gutters are so clogged that you have plants growing in the gutters. This is more common than you think because people tend to not look up. Our friends at Bel Air Gutter & Siding tell us that scheduling gutter cleanings will catch problems early and extend the life of your gutters and prevent damage to your house.
The exterior appearance of your house or your business says a whole lot about you. A clean building will attract customers naturally, new residents, or potential buyers if you are looking to sell. With time, there is a buildup of dirt on your building’s exterior due to exposure to weather conditions and other factors. Hand cleaning may prove a challenge and will not be as efficient. Exterior cleaning ensures that mold, mildew, debris, stains, dirt, and discoloration, are a thing of the past.
High-pressure cleaning is the method commonly used for exterior house washing. If done incorrectly, it leads to stripping. When stripping occurs, it makes some of the areas appear cleaner than the others. This is as a result of the uneven application of pressure to the surface. The paint on your wood siding will probably be stripped off due to high pressure. For this reason, it is best to leave it to the professionals to protect the exterior of your building.
Professionals are skilled with the knowledge and know-how of high-pressure washing for efficient and safe cleaning. Rather than hiring out a high-pressure washer, get a professional to do the dirty work for you. It saves you on time, money, and effort. You will also be guaranteed of safety. Landscaping and cleaning companies are some of the companies that offer residential exterior cleaning. They focus on wooden decks, sidewalks, concrete slabs, etc.
For exterior washing at homes, biodegradable cleaning is used for the safety of the plants or soil. Concrete slabs use extremely hot water and high pressure. Wooden decks require hot water at low pressure to avoid splintering the wood. Other companies include gutter cleaning which removes debris using high-pressure water and thereafter, hand cleaning.
Companies have the right products and equipment to get the job done. Due to extensive experience, they are able to reach high places at weird angles and still get the job done right. A day is enough time to get the cleaning done. However, it may depend on the area being cleaned. The cost includes labor, materials to be used such as soap, and sometimes the transportation costs. You should not be billed for items you provide yourself such as water.
