You may think the siding on your house, the concrete pavements and any wooden structures such as a deck or fence are starting to look grimy and dingy. You’re wondering if you need to repaint or refinish everything to have an attractive home again. However, your best option may be to consider siding, concrete, hardscape and deck cleaning and sealing. With a proprietary process, your outside features can look like new and stay that way for years.
The Importance of Cleaning
Dirt, grease and grime get imbedded in your wooden deck or fence and in your driveway or hardscape features because of normal wear and tear as well as from exposure to the elements. The most common way to clean these areas is with power washing. This is a process that involves a high-pressure hose to blast away dirt and grime. Unfortunately, this can also blast away part of your home. Concrete can become gouged and wood can actually be damaged by high-pressure washing.
There is a three-step process that also uses pressure washing but with a difference. An eco-friendly foam is first applied to your deck, concrete or stone barbecue. This foam has no harsh chemicals such as chlorine, but it kills mold and mildew and gently lifts the dirt and grease from the surface. Because the dirt is loosened, a much gentler power washing will clean the surface perfectly without doing any damage.
How to Make it Last Longer
The three-step process includes a sealant that is sprayed on the surface after cleaning. It soaks into the tiny cracks and crevices and protects against dirt and harmful UV rays that can bleach wood and damage siding. The sealant will stop rain and snow from damaging the surface for several years.
Add Some Color
If you want to change the color of your wooden deck or fence or your concrete patio, it can be stained before the sealant is applied. If you patio is dull cement gray, you can stain it a color to match your house. It’s even possible to use the stain to create designs around your pool or on your front walkway.
Before considering expensive home renovations such as replacing siding or re-concreting a driveway or patio, it’s recommended to look into cleaning and sealing. It’s a cost-effective way to upgrade the appearance of your home.
