If you want to prepare the surfaces of your house for painting, or if your house has just lost its shine, professional house washing is the quickest and best option for you. The fact that your neighbors may take out their pressure washers to wash their houses does not mean that it’s the right thing to do. You should be aware of the risks associated to just blasting the side of your house with high pressured water. Hiring a highly trained professional team that uses top notch equipment ensures your siding is cleaned without damaging it. Burns Exterior Cleaning in Weddington is one such team!
Burns Exterior Cleaning would love to help you with your house washing project if you reside in Weddington or the surrounding area. Performing the house washing project yourself means you’ll invite unnecessary dangers to your home.
Despite the risks, some Weddington homeowners still try to wash their homes with a pressure washer and end up stripping their paint or damaging their vinyl siding. Some still try to use the garden hose kit approach, but that can often involve the use of harsh chemicals. So, why do people risk it? Well, they probably don’t know how affordable professional house washing is, and they don’t understand the risks associated with the DIY approach. The following are some of the dangers associated with a DIY approach to performing your own house washing:
- Damaging Siding: If you opt for the DIY approach and rent a pressure washer, you should know that without proper training, it will be very easy to cause serious damage to your siding. If you use a pressure setting that is too low, you will get an ugly uneven clean, but if you use a pressure that is too high on something like vinyl siding, you could ruin it by cracking it. Then you’ll have water behind it. If your siding is some other delicate material like shake, you may etch away at it, and although it might be clean, it will look awful.
- Damaging Paint: Another DIY risk is damaging painted wood, like lap siding or your trim. Again, a setting too low may not clean it properly, and a pressure too high can easily strip the paint away. If your siding is delicate, we can use gentle detergents to help break down the dirt and grime so we can rinse it away. These are specially formulated to loosen up dirt without damaging your siding. Getting the detergents into those hard-to-reach areas can be very difficult without the proper tools. That brings us to our next type of risk.
- Risk of Accident: This is one of the more serious dangers with house washing. Depending on its configuration, washing a home could mean dealing with wet ground, slippery shingles, or climbing a ladder. Handling a pressure washer while climbing is difficult even if you have the proper training and safety equipment. You could easily be thrown off balance, causing you to fall and injure yourself seriously.
