If you’re planning to paint the exterior of your home
, you may be wondering why pressure washing is such an important step. After all, a little dirt and grime shouldn’t stop the paint from sticking, right? Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Over time, dirt, mildew, and other pollutants can build up on the surface of your home, causing the paint to chip and peel. Pressure washing removes this build-up, giving the new paint a clean surface to adhere to. In addition, pressure washing also helps to remove any chalky residue left behind by old paint. This ensures that the new paint will have a smooth, even finish. For these reasons, it’s always best to have your home professionally pressure washed before painting.
