When should you have your home pressure washed? Ultimately, you can do so at any time throughout the year. However, it is generally best to pressure wash your home between March to November. Pressure washing should be completed before the really cold winter months arrive. There are other factors to consider. Below, you’ll find out how to determine when your home needs pressure washed.

Driveway Stains

Over the years as you park on your drive, you’re likely going to develop dirt, debris, and oil stains. Firstly, if you don’t keep your driveway clean you’re going to carry this dirt and grime into your home. Secondly, there’s a health and safety risk with slippery driveway surfaces. The last thing you need is someone taking a tumble becuase of a dirty and slippy driveway! Let a professional pressure wash your driveway to keep it clean and safe.

Do you have trees beside your house?

You’ll also need to look at your surrounding property. Some buildings are surrounded by trees. In the Summer months it’s great to have additional shade, but having trees close to your property can cause problems. For instance, they’re going to drop their leaves, branches, and sap. Unfortunately, this can fill your gutters quickly in Autumn and quickly discolour walls, driveways and sidings. Over the years we’ve found that homes adjacent to trees need to be pressure washed more frequently than those that are not.

What Time of the Day Should You Get the Exterior of your House Pressure Washed?

It is wise to get your home pressure washed regularly to minimise the build of dirt and grime. It is important to note that the timing of this can be critical in ensuring a lasting finish. Depending on the weather, you can have your home pressure washed at any point during the day. However, it is worth remembering that certain weather conditions make it harder to pressure wash a home. On a cloudy day, it can be easier to miss patchy spots. And you definitely don’t want to wait until it is too dark as this introduces a host of challenges to ensuring a good job is done.
