Why You Should Have Your Home Pressure Washed Before You Paint It



pressure-washing-bostonExterior painting is one of the best ways to improve the appearance of your Boston home, and it can also raise your home’s resale value. It’s very important that this job is done well, however. If the quality of the paint job isn’t excellent, the great new look of your home can quickly turn much worse, and you’ll have to have your home repainted much sooner than you might have imagined.

One of the best ways to ensure that your new paint job is as high quality as possible is to have your home pressure washed prior to painting it. The professional Boston painting contractors at The Masse Group can provide you with excellent exterior painting services, and we can also provide you pressure washing services beforehand.

Of course, you’re ready to get started on adding a new coat of paint to your home, but there are some great reasons to slow down and have your home pressure washed before the painting job begins:

Pressure Washing Will Give You a Longer Lasting Paint Job

Even if you can’t see it, your home’s exterior walls are likely lined with dirt and all sorts of particulate matter mold and mildew grow are also very common. If you paint your Boston home without washing it first, you won’t be painting your walls at all, but instead, you’ll be painting this grime.

Is that really a huge problem? Actually, it is.

When you over any dirt, grime, mold, mildew, or fungus, it won’t be very long before the paint begins to peel and chip away. The paint will react negatively and much more quickly to things like heat and rain, and the effects will be very noticeable. Pressure washing will get rid of these things, so you’ll be certain that you’re painting the walls themselves, which means that your quality paint job will be a long-lasting one.

Your Garden Hose Won’t Do the Job

Unfortunately, there’s no real DIY version of the pressure washing services that our professional painting contractors can offer for your Boston home. Using an ordinary garden hose won’t do the trick because it won’t be able to provide you with the high levels of pressure that you need to remove the dirt and grime. Even if you can see a difference, you haven’t removed what’s going to cause the real problems? It’s often what you can’t see that causes the most trouble.

Mold and mildew growth on your home’s exterior can be especially difficult to remove, and even if you decide to rent a Boston pressure washer, without professional experience and training, it’s likely that you won’t remove enough of this build-up to have a significant effect on your paint job.

Professional Power Washing Services Will Save You Money

You’ve already hired a professional for the painting, so why hire another contractor to handle this part of the job?

The first part of the answer is that it’s worth it. Power washing before you paint your Boston home will save you money in the long run by providing you with a lasting paint job that won’t need to be touched up or completely redone any time in the near future.

Secondly, our painting contractors can handle both jobs. We can provide pressure washing services that will completely clean your home’s exterior without causing any damage to any part of your Boston home, then we can provide you with high quality exterior painting services that we can guarantee you’ll be totally satisfied with.
