The Importance of Cleaning Your Exterior Before The Holidays

Tuesday, November 15, 2022

We all know how busy we get in the holiday hustle and bustle. However, as busy as you might be during the days leading up to the holiday season, it’s still important to not neglect cleaning your home’s exterior – especially before hanging your exterior holiday lights and decorations. There are many important  reasons to prioritize cleaning your exterior surfaces this time of year, but this doesn’t mean you need to handle those tasks on your own. We can help and we have outlined the three top benefits of having your exterior professionally SoftWashed for late fall cleanup before those holiday decorations go up: 


Benefit #1: It Helps Avoid Costly Expenses 

SoftWashing your property in late fall or early winter does more than simply boost your home’s curb appeal. It could also potentially help you avoid costly bills in the future. As  winter tends to offer the ideal conditions for mold to thrive in and around home. It’s important that you clean away mold now before it has the chance to grow over the course of a season. If mold spreads, it can cause those who reside in the home and holiday guests to become ill and having to endure its harmful trademark scent. Mold, mildew or algae on your roof’s exterior can eat away at your shingles and shorten your roof’s lifespan. What’s more, mold remediation is expensive. You’ll need to pay a hefty cost to remediate your home if it spreads.


Benefit #2: It Helps Keep Your Decorations From Getting Dirty & Bringing Problems Inside

Not only can harmful mold, mildew and algae transfer onto your holiday lights and decorations, so can dirt, making spring cleaning even more of chore. Importantly, you will be bringing the problem from outside of your home into your home after the holidays are over with the potential for it to cause more damage in the places you store your decorations and beyond.


Benefit #3:  Your Guests Will Focus On The Holiday Decorations -- Not Dirt!

Chances are you will be having frequent holiday gatherings beginning this month. In many cases this may be the first time that a friend or loved one is visiting your home or perhaps they haven’t been there since you celebrated last year. You’ll want a positive impression that will be lasting. Importantly, with a clean exterior your guests will notice your beautiful holiday lights and decorations, instead of noticing and focusing on unsightly black streaks, mold, mildew and algae. SoftWashing your home before the holidays will keep your guests focused on the splendor of seeing your clean home exterior all lit up for the holidays with the focus on the decorations -- not the dirt!
