Every year, many of us decide on a new year’s resolution based on things we think will improve our lives. We prioritize our physical and mental health, and some popular resolutions include: being healthier, saving money and getting organized. Here at Sky Power Wash, we think our homes deserve a good new year’s resolution or two, too! Here’s a list of a few ways you can improve your home’s health and efficiency in 2021.
Give it a Top to Bottom Cleaning
Whether it’s your roof, siding, gutters, windows, driveway, or deck, your home’s exterior needs regular maintenance to stay in good working condition. Each of these surfaces needs a different treatment, but knowing how and when to take care of it will extend the life of each and save you big bucks in the long haul. Here are a few things to consider as you reevaluate and prioritize how you take care of your home in 2021:
It may be out of sight and out of mind, but cleaning your roof is one of the most important things to do if you want to keep it looking good and doing its job. Here in Puget Sound, a leaky, damaged roof won’t stand a chance against the rain. So to ensure it’s at its best, regular inspections, maintenance and cleaning are needed. Between mold, algae, mildew and debris accumulation, our roofs are vulnerable to irreversible damage. But, it’s all preventable! Our soft wash process is extremely gentle and will not damage your shingles. It also kills off contaminants and ensures your roof not only looks great, but can prevent re-growth. This is one of the more dangerous home maintenance tasks, so leave it to the trained and insured professionals at Sky Power Wash to get the job done.
It’s important to regularly remove dirt and other build up on your home to keep it in good working condition. If mold and algae are left untreated, these microorganisms can make their way into your home, causing the need for costly repair and replacement. Whether your house has vinyl, stucco, wood, brick or another type of siding, our team has the right equipment and know-how to safely and effectively clean it. Pressure washing is much more technical than most realize, so it can go very wrong if done incorrectly. Irreversible damage such as denting, fraying or cracking is common when too much pressure is used.
Gutters may actually be the most dire need when it comes to regular home maintenance. If left clogged, gutters can wreak immense havoc on your home. Standing water and flooding attracts bugs and pests, leads to rotting and mold, and creates dangerous ice dams in the winter. Simply cleaning out your gutters twice per year can help you avoid costly repairs to your roof, siding and even foundation!
