Have you noticed mold, mildew, or dirt on your home’s siding? Power washing improves your home’s curb appeal on a budget, making a big difference in its look. Mold buildup can cause structural damage to your home and health risks to your family.
Home power washing is a form of outdoor maintenance. You can power wash your home’s siding, deck, concrete driveway, or fence. However, determining the best time to power wash is just as important as the task itself.
When is the best time to schedule your annual power wash? The experts at Propel Pressure Cleaning put together this guide to help determine whether spring or fall provides the best power washing results.
The Best Time to Power Wash
When you power clean your home at the right time, you prevent mold and mildew growth from starting on your home. You can power wash either in fall or spring, as both seasons provide mild weather to complete outdoor maintenance.
A day with lots of sunshine and mild temperatures is perfect for power washing the exterior of your home. The weather makes power washing comfortable and ensures that your home’s exterior dries faster.
Cleaning in Spring
Spring is a perfect time to power clean the exterior of your home. The preceding cold winter weather fosters mold, mildew, and dirt buildup on your home’s exterior.
You should prioritize power washing exterior parts of your home that are susceptible to mildew and mold in spring. For example, mold often grows on roofs and can penetrate your home, causing allergies and respiratory issues. It is essential to clear away this buildup before it causes structural damage or health concerns.
Some areas that need cleaning in spring include:
Depending on the weather where you live, you may also take this opportunity to soft-wash away any salt residue that accumulated during the winter months.
Cleaning in Fall
Experts recommend cleaning the entire exterior of your home at least once annually. Fall is the perfect time for this yearly cleaning!
During the spring power wash, you took care of the critical surfaces—roof, siding, gutters—so now it’s time to focus on the sturdier parts of your home.
Some of the more robust exterior surfaces you can clean in fall include:
- Other stone or concrete surfaces
Even though these surfaces can survive freezing weather without cracking or damage, they still need annual cleanings to keep them in good condition.
Wash the surfaces early before winter to keep them clean and ready for the harsh weather in winter. More mold and mildew may have built up over the warm summer if you live in a very humid climate. A quick power wash to remove mold from your home’s siding and roof helps keep your home clean and safe until next spring.
You’ll be amazed at how much brighter and newer your home looks after a comprehensive fall power wash.
