Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Exterior With SoftWash

Thursday, March 2, 2023

Spring is officially here with warmer temperatures and daylight saving time just a couple of weeks away, meaning more time spent outdoors with the bright sunlight illuminating your exterior. Now is the perfect time to wash away the harsh winter elements with SoftWashing so that you can prepare for and enjoy the spring outdoor time. Here are 4 tips for spring cleaning your exterior to get that pool deck, patio, and outdoor entertainment area back in tip top shape.

Tip #1: SoftWash Your Pool Deck

Much like the siding on your home, algae and mold can make their way to the surface of pool deck or patio. Not only will SoftWashing these contaminants away improve the look of your deck, but it will also keep it safe. For example, when algae on a deck is wet, it can become very slippery. Considering a deck is one of the primary places to host guests during warm weather, you will want to make sure yours is in not only in top shape but safe for guests.

Tip #2: Seal Your Patio And Deck

It doesn’t matter if your patio or deck is wood, paver, or stone, it is extremely important to SoftWash in the spring to rid your exterior of winter elements. Cleaning and sealing will also help protect your patio and deck from the erosion that can be caused by rainwater and the hot spring and summer sun. A clean and sealed surface will also effortlessly repel water and even inhibit algae and mold production. SoftWashing and sealing your wood patio will help prevent the wood from rotting and needing to be replaced, which can save you money on costly repairs in the long run.

Tip #3: SoftWash Your Roof

Enjoying the outdoors in a clean outdoor entertaining area is ideal, not only for aesthetics but for safety as noted above. However, being outside more means that your whole exterior will be in view, including those black streaks and dirt on your roof and siding. SoftWashing is a cost effective way to keep your home’s roof and siding looking like it has been freshly painted for a fraction of the price. In addition, the buildup of Gloeocapsa Magma, mold, mildew and other stains and streaks can lead to earlier roof replacements, lower property and lower resale values. If that isn’t bad enough, homeowner’s insurance companies are cancelling policies due the damage that Gloeocaspa Magma and other contaminants are known to cause. And who wants to be enjoying a back yard barbeque of soiree staring at a dirty and unsightly roof or siding?
