Why is Cleaning Your House Important?

When it’s time to clean the exterior of your house, it’s common to procrastinate. But the house becomes dirtier and dirtier as you try to ignore it. Algae and mold begin to creep up a side or two, and you begin to wonder: Do I really need to wash my house? We hate to disappoint you, but the answer is yes. So why is cleaning your house important?

Now that’s an answer that will need to be broken down into a few parts. We need to explain how it can affect your health, damage your home, chip paint, prevent you from selling your house, and more!

You might not know it, but your dirty house could be making you sick. To better understand how, let’s examine what is cleaned when your house is soft-washed.

 A house wash removes:

  • Pollen
  • Dust
  • Dirt
  • Bacteria
  • Mold
  • Algae
  • Mildew
  • Lichens

These microscopic particles have grouped together so much that you can see them. If you have allergies, asthma, or a chronic respiratory illness, foreign contaminants in the air can irritate the air passages, inflaming them and causing more serious symptoms. 

A clean home can mean the difference between feeling well or unwell all of the time.

Part 2: Damage Prevention

It’s hard to tell the difference between mold and dirt on the side of a house. They can both be black and unsightly.

Mold in particular is not just ugly, but harmful to the material it sits on. Like a lot of things in nature, mold secretes an acid that will permanently damage whatever it touches for too long. That’s why it’s so important to get it washed away as soon as possible. 

But mold is also tricky because it has roots that burrow into the material. Much like dandelions, when you cut off the top, it just grows right back. Unless a fungicide is used, the bottom remains behind and stays alive. Within a very short time, it will look like you never cleaned it.

That’s one reason why Premier Pro Wash & Seal will always soft-wash houses. It’s a method that combines water at low pressure and a special solution that will not just clean but kill those microorganisms while remaining entirely safe for you and your family.

Part 3: Surface Priming

If you plan to repaint your home, you will need a clean surface to start on. Dirty surfaces will prevent the paint from fully adhering to the material, causing it to flake, chip, and otherwise wear off prematurely.

Once you receive a soft wash service from Premier Pro Wash & Seal, you might change your mind about that restoration project. Our customers often comment that their house looks new afterward!

Part 4: Curb Appeal

Whether you are in a homeowners association (HOA  or you plan to sell your house in the future, the appearance of the property from the street is important. The first thing that catches people’s attention in a negative way is uncleanliness. When they see dirt and grime on the side of your house, they will assume that you do not perform maintenance on the rest of your house.

When your house is clean, it increases the perceived property value of a home. Although it doesn’t raise property value, people will perceive it as being worth more money. If you want to impress your inlaws or close that deal, having a house wash will greatly improve your chances.
