Why Power Wash a House?

People from all sorts of occupational backgrounds often ask us:

Why is pressure washing a house necessary?
Why do I need to power wash the exterior of my home?
Will it help me sell my home if it’s on the market?
How often should I power wash my home?

The following are some situation-specific reasons for pressure washing (or low-pressure washing) a home’s exterior.

Will it help me sell my home if it’s on the market?

The key to selling a home is to put its best foot forward. You want the potential buyers to imagine themselves in the home, right? Well then don’t you want them to  see it in its best shape possible? If a home has a grimy exterior or just looks unkempt, it makes the home significantly less attractive to potential buyers. It also suggests that the previous homeowners weren’t taking care of the house. It makes people ask, “What condition is the rest of the house in?” By regular maintenance cleanings, you can make the right first impression.  Show potential buyers you are taking care of your home!

Why Power Wash?

How Often Should I Power Wash My Home?

Many people are unsure how often they should power wash their home. They may think that the siding looks fine and potentially go years without washing it. Therefore it may be years down the road before the person even considers power washing their siding. Since the discoloration or staining takes time to develop, most people do not realize how bad their siding looks until they have it cleaned. Power washing should be done once a year, even if it doesn’t seem overly dirty.

Homes take a beating in both the winter and summer here in St. Louis, so these annual cleanings are necessary to keep your siding free of permanent staining. This can ultimately save you thousands of dollars in replacement siding.

These are just a few of the reasons you should power wash you home’s exterior.  Whether you’re trying to sell your home or just wanting to keep it looking good, power washing the exterior is a valuable investment.

How Winter and Salt Damages Your Driveway

How does the Missouri Winter and Salt Corrosion damage a driveway?


Once the ice on your driveway melts after having suffered a moderate snowfall, it seeps into the pores of the driveway and stays there until it completely evaporates or the temperature drops again. If the temperature drops, the melted water turns back into ice causing cracks in the driveway. This process can be repeated and progresses the damage to your driveway as long as it isn’t sealed. It is very important to seal your driveway if you live in a climate with these factors. If it isn’t done, it may lead to more expensive repairs down the road.

Salt is a common substance used to help melt the ice and snow in the process we just described! The salt melts the snow faster, causing it to seep into the pores of the driveway. Along with it melting the snow, it can rust the underlying rebar causing more expansion and damage to the driveway. This can accelerate the freeze/melt process that corrodes the concrete. Resealing a driveway is a safe and inexpensive precaution to prevent concrete damage, and it can save you money in the long run.

DON’T WAIT until it’s too late! NOW is the time to seal your driveway, patio, or walkway. Be sure to get it done BEFORE the weather changes and protect it for the harsh winter months ahead.
