Hey there! Corey from RC Power Cleaning in Rock Hill, SC, here. Spring is in the air, and that means one thing – it’s time for spring cleaning! But we’re not just talking about dusting and mopping inside your house. Let’s talk about giving the outside of your home a spring refresh with pressure washing. Wondering where to start? I’ve got you covered!

1. Plan Your Cleaning

First things first, let’s make a plan. Grab a notepad and walk around your house. Look for dirty siding, grimy decks, stained driveways, and sidewalks that need some love. These are all perfect spots for a spring pressure wash. Making a list will help you stay organized and make sure you don’t miss anything.

2. Check Your Equipment

If you have your own pressure washer, make sure it’s in good shape before you start. Check the hoses for cracks and see if the nozzles are clean. If you don’t have a pressure washer, don’t worry! You can rent one from a local store, or even call in professionals like us to do the heavy lifting for you.

3. Start with the Big Surfaces

A great place to start is with the big surfaces like your driveway and sidewalks. These areas can collect a lot of dirt over the winter, and cleaning them can make a big difference in how your home looks. Plus, it’s a good way to get used to using the pressure washer before you move on to more delicate areas.

4. Move to Siding and Fences

Next up, let’s tackle the siding on your house and any fences you might have. Remember to use a lower pressure setting to avoid damaging them. If you’re not sure about the right setting, test it out on a small, less noticeable area first. And always keep the spray moving to avoid focusing too long on one spot.

5. Don’t Forget the Deck and Patio

Your deck or patio is probably where you’ll be spending a lot of time once the weather gets nice. Giving it a good clean will make those summer barbecues and family gatherings even more enjoyable. Be careful with wood decks, though. Too much pressure can damage the wood, so start low and go slow.

6. Safety First

No matter what you’re cleaning, always remember to wear safety glasses and protective clothing. Pressure washers can kick up a lot of debris, and we want to keep those eyes and toes safe!
