Put the Pressure On: Why Pressure Washing is an Important Step

May 31, 2013

Memorial Day has come and gone and that means that the ‘unofficial’ start of summer is here in Georgia! Its a great time to clean up around your home’s interior and exterior to get it ready for summer entertainment and visitors, or just freshen up and give yourself a nice clean living space. You could paint the exterior of your home, stain your deck, and paint the floor in your garage, but before you can do any of these things, the first step is a thorough pressure washing.

Why Pressure Wash Your Home? Deck Pressure Washing

Whether you are preparing your home for some coats of paint, or you just want to give it a wash, there are lots of reasons for calling in a pressure washer to clean the exterior of your Woodstock, GA home. It is an important step before adding new coats of paint, because if you paint over the old layers of peeling paint, mold, dirt, and mildew, the new coats of paint will not stick. This means that you will then be repainting again sooner than you would expect as the new paint is going to easily peel and chip off of the dirty surface.

Pressure washing is essential when re-staining a deck. Deck boards are prone to rot and mold so pressure washing first will reveal any areas that need to be replaced or repaired, and get the surface clean and dirt free so the new coats of stain will not show unwanted dirt from underneath.

When painting a garage floor, pressure washing would remove any built up oils, dirt, or grease that has leaked into the concrete. The oils are not only unsightly, but leave odors, and will prevent the paint from sticking to the floor.

If you are ready to give the exterior of you home a facelift and remove years of built up dirt and mold, give Three Brothers Painting a call. We would love to come out to your Roswell, GA home and give you and estimate for the project you have in mind.
