Fall is the best time of year to check a few household chores and home improvement tasks off your to-do list. While some tasks may be a bit more tedious than others, you can engage in one task that is both quick and easy: pressure washing. By pressure washing various parts of your property in the fall, you can help improve its curb appeal while also preparing it for the upcoming winter season. With that being said, here are three fall pressure washing projects you shouldn’t overlook.
Power Wash Your Deck
Before winter, it is always a good thing to clean your deck with a high-heat and high-pressure power washer. You’ve invested a lot of money in that deck, and ensuring your deck is cleaned regularly will help guarantee the deck boards remain in good condition for years to come. This will slow down the deterioration of the boards while also killing mold and mildew. In addition, it will prepare the deck for any painting or staining you intend to do.
Clean Out Your Gutters
The gutters are by far one of the most important parts of the roofing system. Many gutters are stuffed with leaves, twigs, and other forms of debris. If they are not cleaned, they will often clog in the winter, resulting in a backup of water and potential damage to the roof. Power washing can be a quick, easy, and effective way to remove the build-up in the gutters, especially stubborn debris, while thoroughly cleaning them. This will help prevent the formation of ice dams as the weather gets colder.
Pressure Wash Your Siding
Power washing the exterior of your home will drastically improve the curb appeal of your property. This is particularly true when there is a considerable accumulation of dirt, grime, etc. on the siding. Pressure washing the siding will also remove any insects and bugs that may be making a home within the debris.
By pressure washing various areas of your property in the fall, you can help it appear cleaner and newer, which will improve its overall curb appeal. This is important if you are planning on putting your home on the market soon, although it is just as important to have a fresh exterior year-round.
