While the local branch of your big box home improvement store may try to convince you that renting a power washer is a good idea, you will not be happy with the final results.
Either you will be unable to get as thorough a job done as you hoped, or you could end up injured. There is a special grade of washer meant only to be used by trained and licensed experts, get a hold of this and you could hurt yourself. Or try to use a low-grade one and it won’t do more than move dirt from one side of your driveway to the other.
Getting the Job Done
So you are aware that you need certain tasks taken care of before the cold weather moves in, but what? Keep in mind, we get that winter weather sooner than many other parts of the country, so it means preparing early. Some of the most important tasks are best addressed by professionals for the best in pressure washing.
So what needs to be pressure washed prior to the end of autumn?
Your deck needs a thorough power washing. This is especially true if you are planning on weatherproofing your deck before the cold air moves in. However, either way, pressure washing will remove debris and organic matter, so that it will be already clean once spring beings. Plus, debris that collect during summer and fall tend to leave stains, especially if left through the winter snow and freeze.
Of course your gutters are a big one. Washing out your gutters will remove the built up matter and debris that has collected. Aside from unsightly, full gutters become a hassle in fall and winter. It can clog, cause spillover on your siding or result in trapped water becoming frozen. Any of this can damage your gutters or even your roof and siding.
This is also the ideal time to get the outside of your windows power washed. Spring, summer and even fall are notorious for leaving dirt, dust and debris, such as pollen, sticking to your windows. Although it may not pose a threat, it detracts from the curb appeal making your windows look unkempt.
While you are at it, make it a point to get your driveway cleaned. Removing rubbish, even organic matter, from the drive means less material to get frozen to the ground to become trip and fall hazards. Do not take a gamble when it comes to the safety of yourself and your loved ones.
