The Benefits of Pressure Washing
- Sunday, 01 May 2016
Home and property maintenance is a part of responsible home ownership. With all of the services needed for annual chores it’s best to enlist the help of a general contractor in Bellingham WA like Derek Worchel. Residential contractors are a great benefit when the tasks you need done are delicate, and pressure washing is among them. It is a service that has terrific benefits but that can also do harm if not performed by a trained professional.
Benefits of Pressure Washing in Bellingham WA
Pressure washer services are useful for many jobs but especially when stubborn substances need to be removed, such as gum, bird droppings, and moss. Water is forced in a powerful surge from a pressure washer. The water acts as an abrasive, which makes it highly effective for some aspects of home maintenance in Bellingham. When you hire a general contractor who has experience in the area, you can be confident that the professionals providing pressure cleaning services can be relied upon to do the job correctly.
An increase in home value is one of the top benefits of pressure washing in Bellingham WA. A home that has been professionally pressure-washed can add up to $15,000 to its sale price. If you have a chance to view images of a home that’s been pressure washed, it’s easy to see the difference. A pressure washing service used for a home exterior is considered the most affordable strategy for boosting home value.
Pressure washing is a form of preventative maintenance. A clean home is less likely to decay, rot, or prematurely age. The life of your deck, porch, driveway, and home siding can be extended with professional pressure washing services in Bellingham, as well.
Your home is protected from algae, mildew, mold, and dirt as a result of pressure washing services. Some of these contaminants can actually be life-threatening, making this the greatest of the many benefits of pressure washing.
Problems Avoided with Professional Pressure Washing Services
There is very good reason to let me, general contractor in Bellingham Derek Worchel, arrange for pressure washing services as part of home maintenance. There is significant potential for damage to be done by this cleaning method. Consider a pressure washer’s psi or pounds per square inch. If high psi is used on a rooftop, serious damage could be done. Gallons per minute, or GPM, is a key of pressure washing efficiency. Although 8 gallons per minute can clean twice as quickly as 4 gallons per minute, the amount of pressure available through municipal water systems is often limited. A high gpm capacity makes it possible to do a great cleaning job, even with a lower psi.
