Algae, grime, and even plant growth are common problems for homeowners. Furthermore, on top of decreasing curb appeal, dirt buildup on the exterior of your home can lead to:

  • Damage to the siding, brick, or wooden materials
  • Decreased property value
  • Dangerous conditions for tenants and guests

Can I pressure wash my house? We don’t recommend it. Here’s why:

You could damage your house.

Like pressure washing your roof, pressure washing your home can cause more problems than it solves. Basically, pressure washing can lead to:

  • Moisture damage and wood rot
  • Peeling paint
  • Broken bricks
  • Loose siding

On top of superficially damaging the exterior of your home, pressure washing can lead to mold and mildew growth in your insulation, weakened structural elements, and wood rot.

It’s not environmentally friendly.

Pressure washing inevitably spreads harsh cleaning chemicals and finishes like lead paint into the yard and nearby areas, where it absorbs into surrounding gardens, soil, and water. On top of being unhealthy for your lawn and garden, pressure washing can subject your kids, pets, and neighbors to toxic substances.
