Had our house washed

September 1st, 2019 at 05:03 pm

For the longest time, my wife has complained about the siding being dirty. A couple of years ago I bought some cleaning stuff that you connected to the hose and sprayed on and rinsed off. I did that and also used a brush to work on a few dirtier areas that I could reach safely. It helped some but not a great deal. So we finally hired a pro. It was someone a neighbor had used recently.

They came on Wednesday. The whole process only took about an hour. They washed the whole house and our garage roof. We didn't bother with the house roof as you really can't see that, plus the garage roof had a lot of moss growing on it being lower and under a tree.

I have to admit the house looks great. As for the roof, the treatment they do kills the moss but doesn't remove it (as that could damage the shingles). They said that over the next several weeks the moss will die and fall off. A couple of good rains should help the process.

All together, the job cost $400. We had gotten a few quotes and they were the most reasonable. They said the cleaning should last a couple of years and the roof treatment should last longer. We'll see how true that turns out to be. At least for however long it lasts, we have a nice clean house (on the outside at least LOL).

    That price is typical for our area as well. Our place needs it but I'm holding out a little longer. We have one side where the white siding starts to get green.

    Enjoy your clean house!

    Jenn, our guy said that the shadiest side of the house will get bad the fastest with the green growth. That's certainly true in our case. Fortunately, that's the side of the garage which is least visible.

    That sounds like a good deal. I think we paid less than that a couple of years ago, but we didn't have the garage roof and a moss treatment. Glad you are satisfied. Homeowner pride is worth what you spend if you are pleased.
