When you decide to sell your home, there are lots of considerations to make. One of the most overlooked factors in a house sale is external cleanliness, even though it helps potential buyers form an early impression of your property. Your home’s exterior is the first thing people see, so pressure washing before a house sale is a good idea.

Here are some insights into the benefits of exterior jet washing.

Why jet wash your property before you put it on the market?

Over the years, weather, pollution and other environmental factors can cause a build-up of dirt, grime and mould on exterior surfaces, affecting your home’s kerb appeal. But first impressions matter, so if you want to attract the right buyers, you need to think about how clean your home is from both inside and out.

Pressure washing solutions rejuvenate properties by removing dirt, stains and unsightly marks from lots of different exterior surfaces, enhancing their visual appeal. A clean and well-maintained exterior also shows buyers the property is well taken care of, instilling confidence in them to consider your home over others they’ve seen.

What are the benefits of pressure washing your house?

Pressure washing is highly beneficial when preparing a home for a sale, making your property stand out in a competitive market. A clean exterior creates a positive first impression (even in photos), which encourages viewings and increases the likelihood of a faster sale. It may even improve the perceived value of your home to help you achieve your asking price.

Jet washing can also help maintain the structural integrity of your home, removing things like mould, mildew and algae, which can compromise the durability of surfaces like roof slates and decking. Regular pressure washing removes these contaminants and prevents long-term damage, potentially saving you money on repairs before you move.

What external cleaning solutions are available for houses?

There are lots of external cleaning options available for houses. Traditional methods, such as hand scrubbing or using a garden hose, aren’t as effective as pressure washing in removing stubborn stains or deep-seated grime. This technique often uses a high-pressure stream of water to blast away dirt and contaminants from various hard surfaces.

Pressure washing is highly versatile and can used for bricks and stonework, decking, driveways, patios, bin cupboards, cladding, paths and even roof tile cleaning. It’s particularly effective in removing moss, mould and other stubborn grime that builds up over time.

Should you hire a professional jet washing company to clean your home?

While some homeowners may decide to jet wash their property themselves, hiring a professional pressure washing company has advantages. For example, we have the expertise to accurately choose suitable pressure levels and cleaning techniques for different surfaces, ensuring effective cleaning without causing damage.

The advanced pressure washers we use can also safely reach high and difficult-to-access areas, perfect for multi-story homes or areas that may be challenging to clean without the right tools.
