You clean and maintain a lot of things in your life. You take your car to a car wash. You take your dog to a dog groomer. But how do you clean your siding? Since siding is the shell of your entire house, cleaning it is no small job. It requires a power washer, a low-pressure nozzle, the right detergent, and a skilled contractor to do the job well. But don’t worry! The Smart Wash team is here to help.
At Smart Wash we have specially trained exterior washing experts that know how to use the tools and solutions necessary to get your home clean.

- Hardboard composite

The Importance of Siding Maintenance
While your siding may not need to be repainted every five years, it is important to keep it clean. Heavy rainfall and other precipitation can lead to dirt and dust being caked onto the surface. That grime is not only unsightly but it can also harbor moisture which makes it a prime breeding ground for mold and mildew. The solution to this problem is cleaning, but you can’t just point a pressure washer at it and be done with it. Improper cleaning can lead to water infiltration between the boards, which will cause mold growth UNDERNEATH the surface. You want to avoid that!

Why Hire a Professional?
Many homeowners in Alexandria love DIY projects! And for many things, doing it yourself is a great idea. But that’s not the case with pressure washing. Why not? In untrained hands, a power washer can become a weapon that destroys your home instead of a tool to restore it. Using too much power can cause several years worth of damage to many of the more delicate surfaces of your house such as your roof, siding, and deck. That could cause some expensive repairs. And without experience using these tools, you could be risking your safety!
