Sometimes when people are in a hurry to paint their home, they’re tempted to skip washing the exterior. Is it really that important? It is! Washing your home is crucial to ensuring a good and even paint job. PaintRite Pros, an experienced painting contractor with over 2000 houses painted for satisfied customers, pressure washes houses we paint to ensure the best possible results.
Pressure Washing is Critical
Pressure washing before painting is a chance to remove all dirt, debris, and cobwebs before painting. It’s important to wash your house so that the new coat has the best chance to bond with the undercoat. By cleaning off all the gunk, we can make sure the paint goes on smoothly, not just rolling over dirt. It’s not just dirt, either. Oftentimes houses can have mildew on their siding. The only way to remove this mildew is washing off with bleach. Our bleaching solution will completely eliminate all mildew from the exterior of your home.
Do I Have To Prime Before Painting?
One of the advantages to using a pressure washer to clean you house before painting is its ability to reach places a regular garden hose or bucket can’t. Our pressure washer can get into crevices and reach high up onto houses. These are places that might never have been washed before! By using the pressure washer, we’re able to clean the dirt and mildew out of these hard-to-reach spots.
Pressure washing is the first step in prepping your home for its paint job. In addition to pressure washing, PaintRite Pros also scrapes and sands, resets loose nails, prime bare areas, and patches cracks in stucco. We put extra effort into prepping the exterior of your house to ensure the best paint job possible.
