How Often Should I Get My House Washed?

Pressure washing in Houston should be performed at least once per year. Some properties require more frequent treatments, however.

And this depends on several factors, including:

  • Type and conditions of the surface that requires treatment.
  • Which contaminants are present.
  • If appropriate, whether the exterior is painted, stained, vinyl, wood, concrete, stucco, or brick.
  • Age of the surface being treated.

Is That Black Stuff On My Roof Really Not Dirt?

Chances are, the black streaks on your roof are a combination of mold, mildew, dirt, tree pitch, bird droppings, and actual shingle particles. As water drains off your roof, it tends to follow a specific direction and can wear away at the composite materials that coat the top side of the shingle, creating the black look that many property owners find undesirable.

Over time, rain and wind carry dust, dirt, and grime, not to mention tree branches and leaves, and your roof can become compromised without you even noticing it. Pressure washing professionals take all this into account when they inspect the job and quote a price.
