Before your project commences, there are a number of steps to take prior to prepare for the best results. Power washing is a significant contributor to a positive end result for a number of reasons including: providing a clean canvas for paint or stain, increases your homes property value, and will save you money in the long run. In this blog post, we will discuss these benefits in further depth. 

Benefits of a clean slate:

Say you are an artist; would you rather paint on a canvas that is covered in dirt, grime, and cobwebs? Depending on your style as an artist, most would say they prefer a blank slate. This is similar to the importance of power washing before a painting or staining project. Power washing is essential because paint adheres better to a clean surface. This ensures that the paint will go on smoothly and last considerably longer. 

Increase your home’s property value:

In the long run, power washing increases your home’s property value. This is in part to the fact that after a power wash comes a fresh coat of paint or stain. Additionally, Services Plus always makes sure to include any carpentry work that might be needed prior to a painting project. Painting a house will can return up to 50% of your investment, in regards to your home’s property value. This is great, especially if you are thinking of putting your house on the market. 

Power washing will save you money in the long run:

Power washing cleans your home of dirt, algae, mold and other contaminates. Mold can eventually lead to rot, which is important to maintain your home’s health. Rather than having to entirely replace the siding, get ahead with a power wash to kill any signs on decay. These are all great factors to consider before getting your house painted. As apart of the Services Plus process, before a paint, a power wash is always necessary!
