3 Tips For Preserving Your Home’s Exterior Paint
Painting the exterior of your home is an excellent investment and is one that can really help to bring new life to your home's exterior. However, since this is an investment for you, it is very important that you protect it. Thankfully, there are certain things that you can do to help preserve your paint. Keep these three tips in mind to preserve the paint on the exterior of your home.
1. Pressure Wash
One of the best ways to preserve your paint is to pressure wash the exterior of your home. By using a pressure washer on a controlled setting that is strong enough to remove any stains or debris, but not so powerful as to damage your home's exterior, you can help keep your paint looking as good as new. A pressure wash will help remove any dirt, mud, hard water, bugs, etc., that have accumulated on your home overtime.
2. Cut Back Greenery
Unruly greenery can wreak havoc on the exterior of your home. The best way to handle this is simply to cut back the branches that are pressing against your home, as well as any vines that may try to grow up the side of your home. This stops the damage from occurring and can help reduce discoloration as well.
3. Keep Your Gutters Clean
If your gutters are full of debris, this debris can overflow from the gutters and create stains on the exterior paint of your home. These stains can be incredibly hard to remove and make the exterior of your home look dingy and in-need of a new paint job. A great way to prevent this is to clean your gutters regularly. If you see that they are beginning to fill, you can either clean them yourself using a gutter cleaning attachment or hire a professional to clean them for you.
