We get this question a lot and we have always had the same answer.
- “Should I have my house pressure washed before I have it inspected?”
The answer is “DUH”! If your home is dirty you are more likely to get negative marks on the inspection which could have a bad effect on the final report and even lead to a failed inspection and all the headaches associated with it. Pressure washing will also make clear if your caulking is okay, if the paint needs to be redone and if your wood is rotting or just dirty. The professionals at Pressure Washing The Woodlands have been serving the realtor market for nearly a decade and they have a wealth of information about how to safely power wash before an inspection.
The primary goal will be, of course, to get a better score on the inspection. The secondary goal – which maybe more important in reality – is to get a more accurate assessment of what is really going on with the exterior of your home. Is the mortar damaged or just dirty? Do you need to repaint? Is the concrete permanently stained or just dirty? Is the siding damaged or is there just some mold and mildew?
It is good to know the answer to these questions before going in to an inspection and give yourself an opportunity to address these issues before the details go down on paper for all to see…including your potential buyer, realtor and bank!
