Pressure washing is necessary for almost all exterior jobs before painting. It prevents mildew which is not only unsightly but can greatly accelerate the degradation of your home.

We have the right equipment and manpower for both commercial and residential jobs of any size. Our staff receives pressure washing training so that all safety and performance standards are always maintained. Because we understand the importance of this step for home maintenance, we offer it as a standalone service as well as part of the exterior painting process.

Two reasons for pressure washing your house

The first is to simply clean and wash the outside of your home and the surrounding surfaces, such as the deck, fence, shed walkways or driveway. Good painting companies will offer pressure washing services that can clean any surface. The average cost for this service is between $150-$250 for all surfaces on and around the home. A standard pressure washing of the exterior of the home removes dirt, cobwebs, mold, mildew and any type of chalking or pollutants. Once power washed, the surface should stay clean for 1-2 years (depending on mother nature, air bore pollutants and age of the home).

The second reason to pressure wash a house is to prepare it for painting. Pressure washing before painting usually involves using more abrasive chemicals like tri-sodium phosphate. This solution is organic so it won’t hurt kids, pets, flowers or your home, but it does clean dirt, chalk, and pollutants off the home. We also add a diluted bleach solution so all the mold and mildew gets killed and washed away, and since it’s diluted, by the time it hits the ground, it’s completely safe like pool water.

Pressure washing before painting is imperative. It’s the only way to properly clean all the surfaces to ensure the new paint sticks. If you don’t power wash before painting you run a very high risk of mass peeling in the near future because the new paint cannot stick to the dirty surface underneath. It’s the first stage of prep work with any painting project on the exterior of the home and a minor and wise investment. All reputable exterior painting services will include power washing as a standard with any painting project.
