The Importance of Cleaning Commonly Overlooked Areas For the Holidays

Friday, December 2, 2022

December is the month known for the most holiday visits. As guests drive or walk up to your home, just as you do every day, there are surprisingly quite a few areas of your exterior that are commonly overlooked. As your home’s exterior is the first thing your guests will notice when they arrive at your home, the holiday season is the most important time for you to make a great first impression. We have outlined the top 4 area of your exterior that are commonly overlooked so you can make sure they are addressed before the December holidays:  


  1. Walkway, Driveway And Sidewalks

Also known as the gateways to your home, these are the first areas that your guests see as they make their way to your front door. With holiday lights shining brightly on and around your home, guests are sure to notice those grease stains on your driveway and dirt on your walkways and sidewalks. Not to mention spots on your front porch and caked on dirt and mildew left over from the fall leaves.


  1. Siding

Don’t make the mistake of assuming that dirt and mildew on your siding will go unnoticed. In fact, now more than ever attention is drawn to your siding, even at night as it is illuminated with holiday lights.

  1. The Roof

Keep in mind, a clean roof doesn’t merely offer aesthetic benefits. By SoftWashing your roofing, we remove such debris and contaminants as roof algae, which eats away at your shingles if allowed to accumulate to enough of a degree. Scheduling a regular roof cleaning service allows you to protect your bank account from avoidable expenses, while also beautifying your property for the holiday season.

  1. Garage Doors

Many of us only see a quick glimpse of our garage doors as we enter and exit our homes each day. Your guests, however, will likely park in your driveway and walk past your garage doors, where they will be in full view, along with any dirt and grime they have accumulated.  

  1. Front Porch

The last area your guests see before they enter your home is the front porch. The last thing you want is for guests to see dirt, stains or mildew on your front porch as they ring the doorbell and wait for you to answer. As most people enter and leave the home through the garage or otherwise hurriedly through the front door this time of year, the front porch is often one of the most overlooked places that can greatly benefit from being SoftWashed so guests can get the feeling of a clean home even before they enter.
