Are you planning to start the new year with resolutions to improve your heath, become more organized or spend more time with family? They key to sticking with your New Year’s goals is starting with a clean slate – getting rid of those cookies in the pantry, purchasing a planner, opening a savings account, etc. The same is true for your home!
If one of your goals for the year is to finally have the home you want, it’s best to start by cleaning and getting rid of the old. New, beautiful landscaping or a fresh coat of paint on the front door won’t stand out much if you still have mildew on your siding or grease stains on the driveway. If you’re ready for a new home this New Year’s, start with a deep clean of the exterior. Here is what we suggest:
- Pressure wash, then paint. If you want to change the look of your home without a renovation with new materials, painting it can do the trick! However, it’s important to make sure the surface underneath the new paint is clean for a uniform coating.
- Clean your concrete. Just as you would vacuum or mop indoors to make your home look cleaner and bright, pressure washing your driveway and walkway can transform your home’s exterior.
- Gut the gutters. Clogged gutters can not only lead to damage and annoying water runoff on a rainy day, but they can also leave streaks of dirt and debris on your freshly cleaned siding. Cleaning them will keep your home fresh and in good shape, and using your pressure washer will make this task much easier.
Once your home is clean and fresh, you’re ready to start on those resolutions for your home to start enjoying them once it’s finally warm again. If you have questions about useful accessories or your pressure washer, contact your nearest Pressure Works location, or use our online form.
