Power Washing Increases Curb Appeal

When selling a house, many people focus on cleaning and fixing up the interior of the home. Neglecting the exterior of the home has negative results when it comes to attracting buyers. Did you know that curb appeal accounts for 7% of the home’s value? That’s what a recent University of Texas at Arlington study published in The Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics reveals. 

In fact, working on curb appeal by pressure washing the exterior of your home including the sidewalks, driveway, decking and siding can provide a return on investment beginning at 75% all the way to 225% depending on the focus of your work. 

In a post-Covid world, many people stay home more. As a result, creating an enjoyable environment has become a priority for many homeowners. Increasing your curb appeal and enjoyment of your home can be as simple as cleaning the exterior of your home. Regular maintenance on a house is necessary to keep it in good condition. Cleaning the exterior is a worthwhile investment. What do you need to do? It depends on the type of home you live in and the condition of your home currently. Generally, a full house cleaning is recommended if it’s been several years since a home has been cleaned. A visual inspection of the home indicates what services will be best. The services we offer include:

Pressure washing is the use of high-powered water to blast away dirt and grime. This process works well on many surfaces that have natural dirt built up from normal use. 

Power washing is the use of heated, high-powered water to remove dirt and grime. The heating of the water make the power washing process more successful in treating issues like weeds, moss, and deeper stains.

Surface cleaning uses a specialized tool that spins on top of the surface with the use of high-powered water to both lift the dirt and grime and brush it out and away. 

Soft washing is a gentler process for special surfaces that uses a low pressure washing technique, along with a mixture of  surfactants and water to clean exterior surfaces of organic stains, mildew and algae.

Spot removal is specific to the stain and is best addressed with the use of bleach, algaecides or other chemical surfactants that will break up the oil or other chemical that caused the stain.

If a home has never been cleaned and it’s more than 3 years old, a thorough exterior cleaning is necessary. Algae and moss can grow on the sides of your home and on the roof causing stains and damage that will eventually lead to costly repairs. A full home exterior cleaning can remove all the spots, stains, dirt, mold, mildew, algae and moss from your home’s exterior and make it look new again.

We hired Patriot Pro Soft Wash & Exterior Cleaning to clean our house. The most professional service I could have asked for. My house, driveway, and pool decking looks amazing. Like a brand new home. Ryan and David are awesome and I would recommend them to anyone.

Patrick C., Pearland

We were so pleased with PatriotPro! We hired them recently to powerwash our driveway. They also ended up softwashing the sides of our house, making it look clean and brand new. Our driveway had some stains on it and it looks better than it ever has now. It really looks like a brand new driveway. Not only did they do a great job, the folks at PatriotPro are so nice and professional. The cost was affordable, too.
