Summer is in full swing! Many homeowners in the Mooresville/Lake Norman area are shifting their focus to the exterior of their homes. It’s a great time of year to touch up a fence, stain a deck, or paint the exterior of your home. But before you tackle these projects, you’ll want to start with a clean surface. Here are a few reasons why you need to book a professional soft wash appointment before painting or staining.
- Ensure Lasting Results. For quality results that last, the surface has to be free and clear of dirt, dust, fibers, grease, mildew, and moisture before you paint. Unclean surfaces will make it difficult for paints to stick to the wood. Therefore, stain, paint, and sealant will have a difficult time penetrating the wood, which can cause premature peeling. It’s also worth mentioning that cleaning your house’s exterior can potentially double the lifespan of your paint, so it is well worth the effort!
- Remove Imperfections. Thinking about skipping the cleaning process before you paint? Think again! Not only will skipping this essential step cause painting to peel quicker, but most of the imperfections will show through your stain or paint. When you book a soft wash appointment with our team, we do more than just rinse off your home’s exterior surfaces. Our deck & patio cleaning services get to the source of algae growth and buildup responsible for staining and deterioration. By removing this gunk at its source, your deck or patio looks better overall, and the results last much, much longer.
- Damage-Free Results. Wooden decks and paver patios can’t always stand up to the harshness of traditional power washing causing damage to the structure of your deck or patio. If you are thinking about power washing your deck yourself, be sure you have the tools and knowledge necessary to avoid damage. Remember that you can also easily cause damage to your home’s exterior by using the wrong nozzle, products, or pressure level.
The bottom line is that you do need to clean off your deck or patio before you apply paint or stain this summer. Our team is here to help remove the gunk at its source for results that last!
