It’s that time again when the weather is starting to turn and the pumpkin spiced lattes are back on the menu at Starbucks, which means Fall is just around the corner. Homeowners know it’s time to prep the yard and the house for the changing of seasons and the transition into the Winter months.
Here are some great tips to help you get your home ready for Fall, and it all starts with power washing.
Power Washing Prep
Power washing your home, deck, and other areas of your property is a cleaning item that should happen at least once a year on your property checklist. Power washing is just like pressure washing, in that it uses a high-speed washer to remove unwanted substances, but power washing uses hot water for a more effective result.
Power washing can clean most surfaces including concreate, siding, wood, and brick to remove substances such as pollen, dirt, molds, and mildew from patio pavers, decks, and so much more. However, power washing can use up to 4000 psi, which means it can be a dangerous job. It’s important to undergo proper training before renting one on your own. However, you can also hire companies like Advanced Cleaning Service in Cookeville to do the job for you to ensure safety and a professional’s touch.
The transition to Fall is the perfect time to get your property looking good as new, and when you start with power washing, you create the perfect backdrop for Fall décor.
