3 Tips to Help You Clean Your Home’s Facade

An Englishman’s home is his castle, so goes the famous saying. That’s why it’s important to show pride in one’s home and to keep it looking its best at all times. This is especially true when it comes to a property’s facade, given that it is one of the first things a person will look at, whether they are paying a visit or simply passing on the street.

Dirt, mud, and dust can easily accumulate on a building’s exterior, especially for properties along busy roads or streets. In this blog post, your expert team 19PFM will highlight practical tips to help you to clean your home’s facade and ensure that it is the envy of the neighbourhood. Let’s get started.

1. Use a Pressure Washer

Pressure washing is a quick and effective way to improve the appearance of a home’s facade. It works to refresh paint jobs without the need for homeowners to apply extra coats and get rid of any dirt that has settled on the outer walls.

It’s effective at getting rid of those pesky spider cobwebs that like to settle in any corner, while also boosting property value in general. It’s a good idea to start with a 40-degree angle to start with and gradually work down to a 25-degree angle if you need to focus on any particularly stubborn areas.

For professional pressure washing services that you can count on, don’t hesitate to contact our professional team.

2. Scrub Brushes Help With Stubborn Stains

On the point of stubborn stains, it’s beneficial to target these with a scrubbing brush before using the pressure washer. A bucket of water, dishwashing soap, a scrubbing brush, and some elbow grease should help homeowners to get rid of any tougher stains.

In the case of tougher stains like mildew, a solution with oxygen bleach is effective. Combine around 4 litres of water with 1 litre of bleach and 30 millilitres of dishwashing liquid.

3. Say Goodbye to Graffiti

Graffiti, unfortunately, is quite common on garage doors and shop walls as well, in some cases, on a residential property’s facade itself. It looks awful, can negatively affect how a business or home is perceived and can be tricky to remove without professional help.

Your best bet when it comes to graffiti is to call the experts at 19PFM. We have the right tools to safely and effectively remove graffiti from your building’s facade without damaging the surface or paint underneath.
