Homeowners are no strangers to housework, the necessary chores of cleaning up the inside of the home are essential to its maintenance and continued upkeep. While we understand that housework is a part of keeping our homes interior spaces in order on a regular basis, we may tend to overlook the outer, most important parts of our homes.
Because our home’s exterior is its first line of defense against the elements that may cause damage, it is imperative that we are proactive in keeping it in its best shape.
Exterior windows and siding should be routinely washed to kept free of dirt and buildup, shrubs and trees should be pruned away from touching the home to keep it free from damage, and gutters and roofs should be properly maintained to minimize leaking potential.
Of course all of this work will ensure your home’s curb appeal remains at it’s best, but it also keeps your home in working order. Keeping up with regular cleaning routines for the exterior of a home gives you the opportunity to take note of any wear and tear that could lead to future, and potentially bigger, problems.
Perhaps the most overlooked area of our home’s exterior is the roof. The very idea of figuring out how to clean our roof without causing damage can be an overwhelming and cumbersome task. While cleaning a roof doesn’t have to be done as regularly as cleaning it’s gutters, annual low pressure, or soft washing, is vital to maintaining its integrity.
Not only does a clean roof improve the overall look of your property, it also ensures that the roof of the home is able to continue providing efficient and safe shelter. The benefits of low pressure roof washing are that it can remove roof algae, dirt, debris, and other hazardous materials from the roof without damaging the shingles or tiles.
This is an important aspect to consider as high pressure power washing can loosen tiles and shingles, damage gutters, and possibly push water into unforeseen crevices causing soft spots and potential for mold. Professional cleaning businesses such as WNC Wash Pro’s are experienced in low pressure roof cleaning which will free your roof from debris and materials that will eventually deteriorate it.
Keeping our home clean and maintained inside and out is an important part of home ownership. By making sure we tend to all the aspects of our most valued investment through regular upkeep, we can ensure that our home remains safe and inviting for years to come.
