Power Washing Sudbury: Protect Your House’s Paint Job

If you painted your house this year or even a year or two ago, you want to do everything you can to protect your paint job. Repainting your house is an investment, and you want it to last you as long as possible. There are many things you can do to preserve your house’s exterior paint, starting with power washing in Sudbury from Painters Etcetera. But after you power wash your house, there are some simple steps you can take to make that power washing job keep your house nice and clean for months.

Here are some simple ways to protect your paint job, starting with power washing in Sudbury.


Start with Power Washing

We said we would start with power washing, so here we go. If you don’t want to use chemical cleaners on your property, high-pressure washing is the best thing you can do. The water cleans off the dirt, grime, moss, and anything else that has built up or grown on the side of your house. You can buy or rent a power washer and do it yourself, but it’s smart to hire a professional if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you stand too close or set the machine too high, you can blast the paint clean off your siding.  

Thoroughly Clean the Mold

If you have a problem with mold growing on your siding, you should clean those areas thoroughly. There are many products designed to clean mold, or you can use a solution of water and borax. After you remove the mold, you should wash the area with soap and water, then let the area dry. Check your ventilation to make sure that water is not condensing in places where it shouldn't, creating the conditions for mold growth.  

Trim Back the Trees

You could have a problem with mold or moss because your property has too much shade, or there are trees and other plants growing close to your house. Trees, shrubs, and vines trap moisture and can cause mold, rot, and water damage.
