Anyone living in the Queen City knows it can be quite a chore keeping the outside of your home clean year -;round. Not only are mold and pollen buildups unsightly, they can actually damage the exterior of your home, as well as decrease the value if you ever try to sell it. One way to combat the elements is by Pressure Washing your home. Whether you plan to purchase your own pressure washer from a home improvement store, or prefer to hire professionals, here are a few tips on pressure washing in Charlotte, NC.
How Often Should You Pressure Wash Your Home?
Because of Charlotte’s long summers and mild winters, homes in the area usually only need a good cleaning once a year. Because of falling leaves in the fall and occasional ice build-up in the winter, the summertime is the ideal time to pressure wash your home.
Should I Hire Out or Purchase My Own Pressure Washer?
When it comes to cost, the decision is mainly based on preference. Purchasing a pressure washer can run you around $300 for an adequate washer and up to $2,000 for a professional-grade unit. If you plan on using the unit for multiple areas of your home, or if you find your home collects more than the typical amount of grim, purchasing a pressure washer may be a good investment.
If you own a large home, you may want to consider hiring a company that specializes in pressure washing in Charlotte. More injuries and accidents can happen when people attempt to take on large home improvement projects alone and pressure washing a large home without help can be dangerous. A good rule of thumb for deciding whether you should hire a professional to clean the exterior of your home is that it depends on the square footage. If you have a two story home that is over 1,600 square feet, it is highly recommended to hire out the work.
The costs involved in hiring a professional to clean the exterior of your home once a year is around $500 to $1,500, depending on the size of your home. Prices should include the full exterior of your home, including the roof, the driveways and walkways and also any deck or porch. Most professionals will offer free estimates, so it is worth calling around to find the service that best fit your budget.
