Pressure washing before the winter should be on every homeowner’s list. Our homes take a beating throughout the year and to maintain its value its imperative we keep it clean. The National Association of Realtors stated that pressure washing your home can add 10-15,000 dollars in value. That’s an amazing number in my opinion but they are other monetary reasons to pressure wash your home as well.
I recently cleaned an extremely dirty home that was being put up for sale. The home had not been taken care of and looked worn down. It is amazing the results that pressure washing a home can achieve. Pressure washing the exterior of the home brings back so much value into it and opens up the eyes of potential buyers. I put my sign in the yard after I cleaned it and that day someone called me asking was the house for sale! It was very surprising and exciting at the same time. It made me wonder if pressure washing the home made it that much more appealing or did the lady who called already have her eye on the house but didn’t know who to contact.
I’m uncertain on what the house was listed for but I wonder how much more money could they have gotten out of that house if they had taken better care of it by pressure washing it over the years. I also wonder how much more efficient their home would have been for them had it been cared for properly.
Pressure washing your house before the winter allows your home to stay efficient during the cold season. Mold and mildew need food and energy to survive. They are NOT like plants. They do not make their own food. Which is why you will see them eat through things on your home for energy. They Mold and mildew on roofs can absorb the sunlight your home was once getting and screw up the energy levels in your home which means potential high utilities.
Remember the house for sale I told you about? I’ve included some pictures of it below. Let me know what you think!
