Discolored Exterior Surfaces 

This can happen anywhere outside your home, including walls and your roof. For homeowners who deal with discoloration on their roof, it is most often black streaks caused by algae. 

Algae can eat away at the materials on your roof, leading to rotten, old, damaged roof shingles. A low-pressure wash can prolong the life of your roof as it can effectively remove algae and discoloration. 

Exterior walls easily collect dirt and grime and can make the paint look discolored or old. Pressure washing can also help clean up your walls, in addition to the roof, and is a great way to prep them for a new paint job, if you decide to look into it!

Dull-Looking Patio or Deck 

Your patio or deck is what makes up a major part of your home. It’s your community’s and guests’ first impression of your home. If your deck had collected dirt, grime, and water, this can affect the overall appearance and can even cause some damage. 

You can keep your deck in shape by giving it a power wash regularly! Even better, a power wash could prevent any damage down the line. 

Mold and Mildew are Easily Noticeable 

If you can see mold or mildew growing on the exterior of your home as you approach your driveway, it’s time to start looking into power washing. Not only are mold and mildew unsightly but they can weaken your home and, most importantly, cause health issues! 

Black mold, specifically, is as bad as it can get. Either way, when you start to notice any kind of mold or mildew, you should have it removed immediately with the help of a power wash. 

Dirty Sidings

While mold, mildew, dirt, or grime may not be easily noticeable from the front of your house, you should check the sides of your home to assess how clean they are. You may not be able to notice dirt or residue if the sides of your home are blocked by trees, bushes, or other kinds of shrubbery. 

The sides of your home are just as important as the front-facing surfaces. A power washer can remove all kinds of debris, no matter the amount of build-up, without damaging the sides of your home!

High Utility Bills

You read it right: if your utility or energy usage bills are higher than normal, this could be a sign of a much-needed power wash. This is often caused by dirty exterior surfaces. When dirt collects on surfaces, it can impede the performance of the insulation, causing a shift in your home’s temperature. 

When this happens, the debris causes your HVAC unit to emit more air out to regulate temperatures, costing more in the end. Even a simple and quick power wash can help you save on utility bills! 

Overflowing Gutters

Cleaning out gutters is always a messy job but it can be made easy when you have help from a professional El Paso power washing team. Oftentimes, when homeowners try to tackle this task on their own, they’ll find themselves having a hard time removing debris from their gutters. 

A power washer provides all the strength you need in this task. If you let your gutters get too clogged, water can start to leak into your home. You can also avoid problems with your home by power washing your gutters as soon as possible. 

Your Driveway is Stained

Naturally, your driveway will collect stains and start to brown from where your vehicle is parked. Nonetheless, this part of your home shouldn’t be neglected! Just like every other part of your home, your driveway can affect first impressions of the exterior. 

A driveway can easily be cleaned and spruced up with a power wash. Needless to say, driveways are prime locations for mold and mildew to grow, so you should have this part of your home cleaned regularly to avoid buildup.
