Here at Under Pressure, we love when our snowbird clients flock here to their second homes in Southwest Florida. November and December are typically the months when we get the bulk of our snowbirds back. Here are some of the reasons you should contact us to make sure everything is ready on your property before you even get on the road for the trip back here.
Some of the same reasons that snowbirds seek out Florida for the winter—such as the climate—also can affect the appearance of your home. The heat and humidity encourage the accumulation of algae, mold and mildew, which can form on the exterior of your home or in your driveway. Once mildew is allowed to gain a foothold, it can be hard to remove. Mildew also can lead to slips, trips, and falls if it forms on concrete or pavers. That’s why pressure washing in Fort Myers and throughout Southwest Florida is recommended, especially for snowbird homes that have been dormant for several months.
The Advantages of Pressure Washing
You should consider having your home pressure washed before arriving for snowbird season, for the following reasons:
It saves money – Maintaining two homes is expensive. You want to find ways to cut costs any way you can. Having your home pressure washed by professionals will save you money in the long run. Proper cleaning prevents the accumulation of mold and mildew on your home’s exterior which, if allowed to go unchecked, will ruin the paint job on your home and eventually lead to dry rot. Repainting and replacing materials on the outside of your home in Southwest Florida will have a much higher price tag than paying for a pressure wash.
It keeps you healthy – Mold and mildew can be carriers of allergens. As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website explains, mold and mildew can trigger an allergic reaction people who already suffer from seasonal allergies, causing symptoms including nasal congestion, and itchy skin or eyes. If you have asthma, mold and mildew can worsen your condition. Anyone with a suppressed immune system, or some other chronic respiratory ailment is at the greatest risk of health problems associated with mold and mildew exposure. Pressure washing eliminates these threats.
It protects the value of your home – You worked hard, scrimped, and saved to have the luxury of being able to come to Florida for the winter, and spend part of your “golden years” enjoying life in a sub-tropical climate. Having a clean, well-maintained exterior of your home enhances its “curb appeal” and, with it, maintains property value when the day comes that you may decide to sell. Regular pressure washings help preserve your paint job and siding, too.
The Advantages of Using Under Pressure
The best course of action is to add pressure washing to your regular schedule of maintenance on your snowbird home. Just like your body, your clothes, and your teeth, you need to have your home cleaned regularly, especially given the environmental factors of living in Southwest Florida. The frequency might fluctuate due to the amount of annual rainfall, but a good general rule of thumb is to have your home pressure washed once each year. Thanks to the pros at Under Pressure, you can have this completed at your snowbird home before you’ve even returned to Florida.
At Under Pressure, we use our innovative soft wash technique, which entails lightly spraying the exterior, driveway, and walkways with a gentle cleanser and then rinsing it off by using a light spray. We avoid using any high pressure on the wash or rinse to avoid damaging your paint job or any other elements of your home’s exterior. Our surface cleaner is used on driveways, preventing any missed spots or “tiger striped” look. For homes with pavers, we can even re-sand them, making sure they remain solid and stable to mitigate any potential tripping hazards.
