Your usual housecleaning routine probably doesn't include washing and cleaning the outside of your house. Over time, the siding on your house will collect dirt, stains, and maybe even mold or algae. Cleaning your home's exterior will improve the appearance of your property. You may want to hire exterior house cleaning services to wash the outside of your house every spring to wash away a year's worth of dirt and grime. Here are some tasks involved in cleaning the exterior of your house.
Wash The Siding
Depending on the type of siding you have, the cleaning service may use a power washer on your house or a scrub brush on a pole. A power washer can be too strong for certain types of siding, and no matter what type of siding you have, the power washer has to be used properly and safely to prevent damage. Washing the siding cleans the exterior of your home from the roof to the ground and eliminates dirt, stains, and algae so your siding looks almost as good as new.
Clean The Windows
Cleaning the outside of your windows regularly is important to prevent etching and clouding of the glass. If you don't have windows that tilt in, you may not even be able to wash upper-level windows without the help of a professional. The cleaning service cleans the glass and around the frame while matching the cleaning products to the type of windows you have whether they're wood or vinyl.
Clean The Entryway
The entry to your house makes an impression on guests, so you want this area to be especially clean. The service may use a power washer to clean the concrete or pavers near your door. The door is carefully cleaned as well so it looks welcoming. The area under the roof can be cleaned out with a hose or pole brush so no spider webs or dirt detracts from the appearance of your entry.
Wash The Garage Door
You should have your garage door washed at the same time since it can pick up a lot of dirt over the course of a year, especially if the door is white. The service might use a power washer on the garage door, depending on the material it's made of, and it may be necessary to remove algae and scuff stains, too.
Washing the outside of your house will keep your home and property in good shape, and you may want the service to clean your driveway or patio surface at the same time. These can usually be cleaned with a power washer, and with these surfaces clean too, your home will look well-kempt and make a good impression on your guests.
