5 Ways Pressure Washing Can Spruce Up Your Property

5 Ways Pressure Washing Can Spruce Up Your Property

If you’re looking to spruce up your home or HOA property in Roseville, Rocklin, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Granite Bay, Lincoln, Loomis, and Penryn, pressure washing has many benefits. When it’s time for property improvements, scheduling pressure washing is a great first step toward a home exterior or rental property that looks like new.

How Pressure Washing Works

A pressure washer relies on three components to work: a motor, an air pressurizer, and a hose.

The motor runs the air pressurizer. When the hose is triggered, the water meets the pressurized air and comes out of the nozzle at that high rate of pressure. This high pressure is what allows surfaces to be safely blasted clean for significant improvements throughout your property.

The higher the PSI (pounds per square inch), the more dirt and grime it can penetrate. The higher the gallons per minute (GPM), the more readily dirt can be broken down and washed away.

5 Benefits of Pressure Washing Your Property

Power washing has many benefits when it comes to improving your property. Here’s what impresses homeowners and property managers we work with:

  1. Impress Potential Buyers: If you’re preparing to sell a home or rental property, pressure washing fully removes the grime, dirt, debris, and particulates from exterior surfaces. The result? Your original surfaces look like new, and buyers have a clear picture of the true beauty of your property.
  2. Improve First Impressions: If you’re advertising the rental or sale in front of your building, pressure washing leads to a better first impression. This improved curb appeal means you’ll likely have more prospective buyers or tenants than you would without making this improvement.
  3. Restore Multiple Spaces: Pressure washing is a versatile way to improve and restore multiple surfaces across your property. You don’t have to stop with exterior walls. You can pressure wash sidewalks and walkways to clear off gum, dirt, and stains. Facades, trims, and awnings can shine again. Dumpsters and loading docks can be more fully cleaned and sanitized. Gutters can be fully cleaned and cleared. Garages and parking lots can be cleaned with pressure washing to remove stubborn buildup and clarify lines and wayfinding.
  4. Prepare for Painting: When you’re ready for exterior painting, pressure washing is ideal surface preparation. The cleaner and smoother your surfaces, the better your primers and paints adhere, and the smoother and more durable the resulting finish.
  5. Improve Health and Safety: Grease, oil, and algae can lead to slips, falls, and other accidents. Mildew, mold, pollen, and other contaminants can cause allergies, and can aggravate asthma and other respiratory issues. Pressure washing can remove these health and safety risks. And when it’s done on a regular basis, it can prevent them from taking hold and spreading.
