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.

Thank you so much for the incredible kitchen. Your work is really outstanding and beyond what I imagined. I am very happy. I just used my garbage disposal and I couldn’t even tell if it was on! LOL! And it didn’t throw food up on the other side of the sink like my old one. I can’t stop staring at my kitchen. J And Chance seems to like to open the cabinet doors now that they have hardware on them. LOL! Thanks again for your patience, time and excellent skills.
Thanks so much for everything. It was so great to work with so many talented and professional people. We are so excited to move in. The ceiling in the dining is truly beautiful and turned out to be just as I had envisioned it. It brought tears of joy when I saw it completed. Nick is an exceptionally professional. So is John, I love all of the colors we chose together. I'm very proud to tell them it is a very low voc green paint. It will be fine for John to take some pictures of the house. Just let us know. Thank you Nick for all your help with this project. It turned out beautifully.
I used NBM Painting. They are painting the trim on the outside of the house and some deck railings. I like their responsiveness. They came the next morning after I spoke to him. He was great in explaining about the scope of the work. He gave me his opinion on how to best solve few problems that was there.
NBM Painting Team did the interior painting of my 3000 sqft home. Nick provided a same day quote that was very reasonable. The service, quality of work, punctuality, and timeliness were all excellent. I will work with them again when I’m ready to paint the exterior of my home.
Guys did exterior house painting on my house. Paint job was exceptional. Included main two-story residence, detached garage, side picket fence, and rear yard retaining wall. I was very satisfied with their work and focus to detail. Did great job... Required sanding and smoothing, due to warping from years of wear from outside exposure. Nick is a true gentlemen. Every request I made for extra attention to project was met with complete compliance. I wouldn’t hesitate to using NBM Painting Inc. again.
