Once warm weather arrives and the cold winter days are gone for good, it is time to get ready for some spring cleaning. Most people clean the interiors thoroughly and in detail, but few pay attention to the fact that the exterior needs some freshening up as well. In fact, a house can never look completely clean and fresh, unless the exterior part is equally clean. Let’s see what you should do in order to ensure a proper exterior cleaning.
Gutter cleaning: Cleaning gutters is not the funniest or most interesting thing you can do, but it is one of the most important tasks you need to perform if you want to ensure safety, security and durability levels for your house. Clogged gutters and waterspouts can be the source of numerous problems for your house. Gutters should be flowing freely and they should not be blocked by debris under any circumstances, because in this case you might drive water to your side walls and foundation. Leaves, twigs and debris tend to pile up in gutters, therefore it is completely up to you to clean them and repair them. If you are not up to the task you can even hire professionals who will do the job efficiently and effectively.
Wash windows: As funny as it may sound, many people tend to wash only the interior part of their windows. After the rain and the ice of winter, though, it is absolutely necessary to clean your windows that are probably spotted and quite dirty. Spring and summer are bright seasons. Therefore you need to allow some light to penetrate your room. Window washing is also not fun, but it is quite necessary if you want a clean house that is and looks fresh. If you decide to wash windows do not forget the screens and the storm windows as well.
Mud removal: After winter, the siding and roof might be full of mud and debris. Mud is the number one danger for the brick mortar as it encourages algae and rust. Salt that stays from ice or water can also leave stains on your driveway or siding. What can you do? The best option you have is to pressure wash the yard, garden and driveway, as well as the side walls and roof of the house. Pressure washing can help you remove a variety of debris, as well as mold, mildew and all kinds of dirt, allowing the exterior of the house to look clean and fresh. You can buy a pressure machine in any home improvement store, but if you want to avoid such tasks, you can always hire a professional to do the job inexpensively.
Exterior cleaning is absolutely necessary. It is always recommended to do it when spring arrives in order to be able to enjoy a clean and nice garden or yard during the warm and friendly months of the year.
