Preparing Your Home for Pressure Washing

Pressure washing Orlando

Pressure washing home exteriors isn’t as simple as assembling the equipment and getting to work.

Professionals recommend preparing your home for pressure washing to prevent the high-pressure water and equipment from damaging your home’s facade.

Before hiring professional pressure washing contractors, there are several things you can do to prepare your home for the job. This blog post will examine some of these necessary steps when preparing your home for exterior cleaning.

Cover Window Screens and Trim

Windows screens and window trim can become brittle over time, and high-pressure water spray can cause these items to break off and fly away. Homeowners must cover these components during a pressure washing service to avoid damage.

Cover All Electrical Outlets and Wiring

Walk around the house and unplug any appliances or extension cords. Cover the outlets with hinged covers or purchase exterior outlet covers and install them before you call the pressure washing technicians to begin working on your house. When exposed to the water stream, exposed electrical sockets can produce a surge or a jolt of electricity.

Remove Trashcans and Garbage Bags

Move trashcans away from the house, so they don’t sustain damage during your pressure washing service. Doing so prevents these items from getting wet and leaking into other areas of your property.

Cover Gutters and Downspouts

Gutters and downspouts need to remain clean if they are going to properly drain water away from your home’s foundation. Covering these items with plastic sheeting or tarps during a pressure washing job will keep them safe from water damage.

Remove Lawn Items

Remove all lawn items from your yard, such as pool deck furniture, lawn chairs, and more. This will help protect these expensive items from potential damage and make it easier for the professionals to clean your home’s exterior.

Cover Plants with Plastic Sheeting

Cover all the plants in your garden or backyard with plastic sheeting so that they do not sustain damage from the pressure washer’s water spray. You can also use a tarp or a trash bag as useful alternatives.
