My husband and I just recently purchased our first home and that in itself can be very intimidating. When you sit back and realize all the normal upkeep that comes with owning a home it can get even more overwhelming. We want to take pride in our new home and make it look amazing, as do most homeowners. Our house is a very old home and was due for a much-needed wash.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff and Preston when they did a house wash for me. The results were outstanding and so was their communication and friendliness. Jeff stopped by the house a few days before they came to wash the house to meet with me and do a walk-through. He looked at everything and explained what he observed and how the cleaning process would go. He told me my options for concrete, decks, and rust on the siding.

We decided to have Preston and Jeff do a house wash, our sidewalk, and part of our deck. We have a very large deck that needs a TON of work so we will proceed with that at a later date. (I will note that the spots that were cleaned on the deck to show me the options look so great!)

The before and after of our house is an incredible difference. When friends and family stopped by our house, they immediately noticed the difference in how clean the house looks now. I will be making this an annual thing!

Now let’s dive in on more of Premier Power Wash’s specifics.

House/building washing is the most common. It is recommended to get your house professionally washed every two years. A lot of people do it once or twice a year. This can include garages, sheds, entryways and porches, patios, sidewalks, driveways or retaining walls. Premier Power Wash is equipped with a commercial service cleaner that spins at high speeds with soap and special tools for retaining walls. Concrete and stone retaining walls are very porous and soak in grime and get dirtier every year and begin to look older. With the help of these guys, they can get those looking almost new again!

You can have your exterior windows cleaned as well. The crew of Premier Power Wash can reach way up high and remove those hard water stains for a spot-free finish.

One of the many things Jeff educated me about a bit more was rust staining removal. You can get those pesky rust stains removed with their help! It is a chemical process that can remove the battery and/or irrigation rust from concrete.

Some common mistakes people make are:

  • Only using water to wash their house.
  • Using too much pressure
    • Can lead to ruining the edges of windows and making them leak over time. It gets water in between the windowpane due to a broken seal. This usually isn’t noticed until years later
    • Speeds up the oxidization process from the sun which in turn lowers the lifetime of the siding
  • Not getting your house professionally washed often enough
    • Green chunks of algae will grow on siding and gutters and the paint and color will fade all around where the algae have been
  • A common mistake people make when cleaning their decks themselves is if you don’t get it clean enough, it won’t get all the algae off. Then once it is stained and sealed, it will lock in all that algae and in turn, make it almost impossible to clean it in the future.
