Your home needs to be regularly pressure washed to have an extended service life. At the same time, it is crucial to have your house professionally washed if you intend to sell your property. This is because both real and curb values are directly affected by the external condition of your home. 

If the outside area were full of dirt and grime, with the walls festooned with bird droppings and cobwebs, it would create a really negative first impression, to say the least. Apart from that, there are plenty of organic pollutants around. Algae, moss, lichen, and mildew, for instance, can spread rapidly over your property. These contaminants must be removed on a priority basis, and only highly skilled house-washing experts can get the job done properly.  

However, before you call the experts to pressure wash your property, you should get it ready beforehand. This will save them the time and effort they would rather spend cleaning your property. Here are a few ways you can prepare your home for a pressure-washing session.

Seal All Openings

Pressure washing is the best way to clean the external surfaces of your home. This means you will have to prevent the ingress of the cleaning mixture into your house. The last thing you need is a flooded basement, not to mention wet walls and floors and water all over your expensive electronic appliances. 

Close and lock all the doors, ventilation points, windows, and other areas. Inform the pressure-washing professionals if a certain area cannot be sealed off so they would be more careful around that place. 

Remove the Extra Stuff from Your Deck, Porch, and Lawn

Remove all toys, furniture, exercise equipment, and other items from the areas that have to be cleaned. Sure, your pressure-washing service providers can do the job themselves, but it will waste their time—and yours too. After all, they won’t know where to put the stuff, and you will have to sort everything out eventually. 

Always Make Sure All Power Mains Are Covered Properly

You have to cover the power mains and outlets to ensure there is no chance of water getting into the wiring and causing a short circuit. It would be best to switch off the power supply altogether until the work has been completed. 

Always remember that water is an electrical conductor and can get inside your home and create a life-threatening hazard. Keeping devices plugged in during the pressure-washing process can be extremely dangerous not just for you and your family, but also for the pressure-washing specialists. Always double-check to make sure everything is switched off.
