Washing your home is the first step to a great exterior paint job
Power washing is an important first step in the preparation of your home’s exterior for painting. Washing ensures that it is the cleanest surface possible on which to apply the paint.
CertaPro Painters of Boston’s South Shore uses a 5-step process to prep and paint your home.
Power washing removes mold and mildew:
Most of the time, we add a mold-killing detergent to the water we use to power wash your home’s exterior. This ensures we are able to inhibit the growth of mold and mildew from your home’s exterior.
If you are having trouble with mold and mildew growth on one or all sides of your home, it’s important to let sunlight reach your home. We recommend trimming trees to reduce the amount of shade on your home, otherwise mold and mildew may grow back.
Powerwashing shingles and decks:
Many Boston-area and South Shore homes have at least one side of cedar shingles, and power washing cedar shingles before sealing or staining them is imperative. The same thing is true for decks and porches – most times it is critical to power wash a deck floor before staining it.
