We all know that a clean home is better for our health and promotes a safe environment for ourselves and our loved ones. However, while we recognise how important this is for the inside of our homes, rarely do we think about the exterior of our homes.
Just as mould and mildew inside the home pose a health risk and impair air quality, the same can be said for the outside of our homes. A healthy home is one that is clean inside and out.
If you’re someone who books in to have carpets and rugs cleaned annually for optimal home health, adding an exterior house wash once a year should be high on your list too.
In this guide, we’ll explain exactly what house washing is, its benefits and why Kleen Genie are the team you can trust to get the job done.
What Is House Washing?
As it sounds, house washing is the process of washing and cleaning the exterior surface of your home. While you may employ a vacuum cleaner to remove dead skin from mattresses or hot washing to cleanse pillows and towels during deep cleaning of your home’s interior, exterior cleaning is performed quite differently.
Using eco-friendly cleaning products, gentle pressure washing and scrubbing as needed dirt, grime, dust, insect and animal wastes and more are all effectively removed from the exterior walls of your home.
Benefits Of House Washing
Regular external house cleaning offers several great benefits. These benefits include but are not limited to:
- Removing and preventing the buildup of dirt, grime and mould
- A reduction in allergens in and around the home – ideal for those with hayfever, sensitivities to dust mites or similar
- Enhanced street appeal
- Preventing damage to exterior services caused by build-up over time (preventative maintenance)
Deep cleaning the outside of your home can also help you discover any damage that needs repairing – helping you catch things before they become a much bigger, more expensive problem.
Additionally, when the exterior of your home is regularly cleaned you will experience better air quality inside your home. Fresh air is vital to better health and simply using an air purifier isn’t enough to keep your home’s air quality at its best.
How Often Should I Wash My Home?
We recommend washing your home every 6-12 months. At least once a year is preferred. Regular washing helps to reduce the time needed on subsequent visits and can mean a less intensive approach is needed.
For homes in high humidity or those close to the ocean where salt spray is prevalent, more frequent washing is ideal and can significantly reduce the risks of damage from build-up on exterior surfaces.
Is House Washing Expensive?
House washing is much more cost-effective than you may think! Especially when compared with the costs of repainting or replacing the exterior of your home due to damage.
The exact cost of washing your home will depend on the level of grime to be removed as well as the size of your home. Our team is happy to give you a free quote tailored to your home’s specific needs.
