If you've never power washed your home before, you may want to consider doing so now. As a homeowner, you know property maintenance is important and so is potentially raising the value of your home.

Power washing has many benefits for both your home as well as your health. There are tons of different benefits and facts you should know about power washing before you decide to do it and we've laid out a few of those below.

Seven Things You Should Know about Power Washing:

1. A power washer is much stronger than a garden hose.

Sometimes people will think that placing their thumb over the end of a garden hose can have the same effect as using a power washer. This is not true. A garden hose will not have the same power or be able to dislodge the same amount of grime that a power washer can. A power washer has 80 times the force of a garden hose.

2. You cannot power wash everything.

Power washing is best for you’re the exterior of your home, driveways, patios, pool decks, concrete fixtures or landscapes, and windows. You should avoid power washing outdoor fabrics, wooden furniture, crumbling concrete, plastic furniture and painted surfaces, unless you're trying to remove the paint. The pressure can damage these things.

3. You can easily remove mold, mildew, grime and dirt with a power washer.

The force created can move all of these substances. It will dislodge dirt in hard to reach areas. Removing grime and dirt between patios bricks, concrete, on your driveway and around your home can be difficult due to reach and how much can accumulate between cracks. Power washing makes this easy.

4. Pressure washing each year will extend the life of your paint.

If you pressure wash each year, you can extend the life of your paint by at least three years. It is much less expensive to power wash than repaint.

5. Pressure washing your house regularly will protect the health of your family.

If you let it go too long without power washing your home, the extended exposure to mold, mildew, algae and dirt can negatively affect the health of your family. The longer it sits there, the worse it can be.

6. It can help you maximize the sale price on your house.

Power washing your home regularly can help you sell it later on. The better your house looks, the more you'll be able to get for it when you go to sell it. It will also help your own personal enjoyment as well as longevity of your home.
