How Power Washing can Prep Your Home’s Exterior for Fall

Most of us are excited to get past the “dog days of summer” and into some cooler weather days and sweater weather nights. Before we can dive into our Pumpkin Spice Lattes and fire pits, there are a few things you are going to want to do to prepare your home for the colder months that are ahead.

Preparing your home’s exterior for fall

Gut it.

With all this rain we have had this year, you have probably noticed your gutters putting in some real work this season. Gutters are an important part of your home’s exterior and something you should always take note of in the fall. Fall means heavy debris like leaves and sticks that will fall onto your roof and right into your gutters causing blockages that can lead to pretty expensive roof leaks. Taking the time to clean out your gutters now means you won’t be having to looking for dry-wall repairs later when the snow hits and your gutters aren’t draining properly.

Power wash.

We do a lot of power washing for folks around Northern Virginia and there is good reason to. Most people think it creates curb appeal, and while it does, it also serves another purpose especially when it comes to your deck. Power washing your deck can remove the mold and mildew buildup before the harsh winter snow comes down on them. Mold and mildew plus water equals a recipe for disaster and can shorten the life of your deck by years. Taking the time now to prepare for the winter will help your sanity come spring plus it will be nice to sit on a deck this fall that is freshly washed. Need a quote on your deck power washing?

Turn it.

The calls we get all too often during winter months are when homeowners forget to turn off their outside faucets and end up getting a burst pipe in the middle of the night and need dry-wall repairs and painting. While remembering to turn off your outdoor faucets and prepping them for winter seems easy enough, the outcome of not doing so can cost you a lot. Put it on your calendar or on your app and make sure to set a reminder so you won’t be up to your knees in water this winter.
