When winter kicks in Los Angeles, the days grow shorter and cooler, the rains come, and the sunny days are fewer and farther between. As the coldest months of winter approach, it’s best to plan to do some cleaning of the exterior of your home in late fall and early winter. By spring, the dust and pollen will be back, so taking care of these cleaning tasks now is your best bet.
While you’ll find many ways to clean your deck, windows, gutters, and the rest of your exterior, pressure washing has proven to be the most effective solution. This method can thoroughly clean the exterior surfaces and remove all build-up contaminants from your gutters, windows, siding, and fences.
At Curb Appeal Power Clean, we are experts at power washing the various styles of architecture and roofing across Los Angeles, as well as other features like fences, gazebos, garages, roofs, and gutters. Our professional-quality equipment allows us to adjust the techniques and pressures for different types of jobs so that we keep your home well-protected.
You might ask yourself, “Why pressure-wash my house and prepare it for the winter?” Well, we can tell you a few reasons, which include the following.
1) Pressure Washing Identifies Siding Issues
The heart of winter might not be the ideal time to find out that you need to repair your siding. In some cases, you may still have to do it because it will affect your house temperature. At Curb Appeal Power Clean, we not only clean but also closely inspect the structure of all the walls, roofs and other surfaces we clean so we can report any potential damages or vulnerabilities to you.
The main reason homeowners in Los Angeles often miss siding issues is that debris, dirt, and mildew build up over time. After a pressure wash, every inch of your house’s siding will be spotless, allowing us to notice even the slightest defect that may have developed.
2) Pressure Washing Removes Leaves From the Gutters
Accumulated leaves in your gutters are not harmless, and going through the wet winter season with clogged gutters makes matters worse. One winter with dirty, leaf-filled gutters is enough to make you understand the importance of cleaning them in the fall. Believe us—we’ve seen the damage it can cause.
The main problem with clogged gutters is that debris builds up and causes blockages. Blocked gutters and a heavy rain will cause leakage in or around the foundations of your Los Angeles home, which can result in thousands of dollars in repairs.
Getting a pressure wash means your gutters will be free of dirt, debris, and mildew as winter weather comes.
3) Power Washing Thoroughly Cleans the Driveway to Increase Safety
Having a clean driveway comes with many benefits – accumulated debris won’t stick to yourself or your car tires, you won’t create an environment that invites bacteria to build up, and you won’t risk sliding on a slick, oily surface and hurting yourself. Of course, the aesthetic benefit of getting rid of the dark oil spots and leakages can speak for itself.
4) Power Washing Refreshes Wooden and PVC Fencing
During the year, dirt, mildew, and pollen will attach to your fence. Whether you have a wooden or a PVC fence, don’t think you can avoid these substances from accumulating. No fencing is safe from common contaminants.
After the dust has settled from when the leaves dropped from the trees, pressure-washing the fence will get it nice and sparkling clean before the winter rains and the spring dust and pollen blow through. Pressure washing will refresh the fence’s look and make it less susceptible to pollen, mildew, and mold, which is more likely during the damp winter months.
