House pressure cleaning: Is it worth it?

house-washing-roof February 17, 2022

We regularly clean inside the house, but what about the outside? We rarely give it a second thought! Discoloured bricks go unnoticed, cobwebbed walls are ignored, and dust-caked concrete becomes the norm. 

Your house is open to the elements – dirt, dust, pollution, bird poo – the list goes on. Year after year, these elements build up and you can’t see the original colour of your house anymore.

High-pressure cleaning can shave years off your property and increase its street appeal. We give you three reasons why exterior house washing is worth it. 

 

3 reasons why house pressure cleaning is worth it 

1. House exterior cleaning increases the value of your home 

Selling or renting your property? You know the saying, first impressions count. The outside of a building is what buyers and renters see first, and if it’s dirty, they will assume the inside is dirty too.

Take a look the next time you go for a drive. You will notice the buildings that look worse for wear – we bet they haven’t seen a high-pressure hose for a while! Discolouration can also age your property, decreasing its value. 

So how do you revive your home and make it look its best? Invest in house pressure cleaning. Cleaning the exterior of your home will restore brick to its original colour, make your pavers look new and give your roof a healthy glow. You’ll be surprised by what a refresh can do. 

2. House high-pressure cleaning removes dangerous mould   

Another reason to get house exterior cleaning is to remove mould. Mould grows in warm, damp and poorly ventilated areas. Unfortunately, it can also grow outside, and once it’s alive and thriving, it starts to grow inside, which is bad news! 

Mould not only looks unsightly but can be damaging to your health. Black mould (Stachybotrys chartarum) can grow toxic spores which can cause respiratory illnesses or aggravate existing ones. If you have kids in the home, this is something to consider. 

If you do notice mould, we recommend hiring a professional or mould removal specialist as heavy mould exposure can trigger a reaction in some people.

Professional high-pressure cleaners will use PPE, gloves, eye protection and a respirator, so they stay toxin-free. Plus, trying to remove mould yourself is a big job to take on! And if you’re anything like us, you would rather spend your weekend doing something you enjoy. 

3. House high-pressure cleaning prepares for renovation 

Planning a fresh slick of paint? Whether you’re painting brick, wood, stone, concrete or plaster, you will need to wash exterior walls in preparation. Why? It will make your paint last longer.

Unfortunately, scrubbing with water and soap won’t cut it. A high-pressure house washing professional will remove dust, dirt and tough stains like oil. They will also be able to access hard-to-reach places like roofs and deep crevices. 

 

Can you wash the outside of your house yourself? 

While cleaning your house exterior may seem like an easy DIY job, without a commercial-grade hot-water pressure hose and the skills to know how to use it, it’s unlikely you will be able to clean your house sufficiently. 

DIY cleaning solutions can also be too abrasive for some surfaces, resulting in damage to walls, especially coloured concrete. Kleenit uses environmentally friendly, biodegradable cleaning products that are gentle on your property and won’t harm the earth! 

What about the budget? Is it cheaper to high-pressure clean yourself? After spending time researching how to DIY, buying products and equipment, and then struggling through the job yourself, a professional cleaner is often more cost-effective in the long run. Plus, you have the confidence to know Kleenit has got the job done correctly.
