The warm-weather cleaning fever is about to peak. As the days get longer and the weather heats up, residents in Ohio have started working on home improvement projects with new-found energy. That’s why now is the best time for cleaning services and home maintenance.
Between long, cold winters and hot, humid summers, the midwestern climate can be harsh. But this is a great time to take care of exterior cleaning projects. Your neighbors know this too. So, be sure to call your power washing crew now to beat the seasonal rush.
Clear Out the Winter Buildup
During the winter, leaves, dirt, and grime build-up and get compacted under the snow. In the spring, you may find yourself looking at your house with disappointment. Once the snow and ice melt away, the exterior siding, as well as the driveway, deck, and patio, will likely look dingier than you remember. This is why many homeowners rush to schedule power washing services this time of year.
Clean Up the Exterior Surfaces
What should you plan on having cleaned in the spring? Well, everything! Pressure washing, soft washing, and power washing is an efficient and effective method for cleaning everything from the roof to the driveway. Here are some items to put on your checklist this year:
Improve the look of siding while getting rid of dirt, mold, and mildew. Siding should be soft washed annually to clear away contaminants. This is also perfect prep if you’re planning to have the house repainted this season.
Clean mold, mildew, black streaks, green algae, and moss from the roof. Shingles and roofing materials will last longer with this simple maintenance measure.
Clear out the gutters. Clogged gutters can cause water damage and other big problems for the eaves and roof of your house. Power washing is the quickest method for gutter cleaning that ensures that they can do their job of collecting precipitation and directing it away from the structure. Relying on a professional crew is also the safest way to have this difficult-to-reach surfaced cleaned.
Wash the windows. Having windows cleaned professionally about once every two years gets rid of built-up grime on the glass and in the tracks.
Decks often need some TLC in order to make them a nice place for your family to spend time this summer. Power washing is probably the fastest way to get the wood surface reading for a new coat of stain or sealant.
Freshen up paver stones and clear away, mold, moss, leaf debris, and tree residue with power washing. This is a great way to get your patio surface ready for backyard parties and barbeques.
Remove stains on the driveway and other concrete surfaces caused by oil, grease, dirt and plant material. Use high-pressure water for washing the driveway and walkway, after the snow and ice have gone. This will help prevent tough stains from setting as the spring sun gets stronger.
Get patio furniture ready for the summer. Power washing is a fast way to clear away the grime that settled over the winter and get your outdoor tables and chairs ready to use.
The garage is often the focus of spring-cleaning efforts, but the job can be much easier with the help of a pressure washer. This tool makes it easy to clean the surface and power stains out of the garage floor.

Take Advantage of the Warm Weather
If the night temperatures are consistently above freezing, it’s not too early to plan for power washing projects. The warm weather will help dry the area quickly after it has been cleaned. This is also beneficial for your yard and landscaping by avoiding flooding it with excess water or allow water to sit there.
The great-looking results that you get from professional power washing are more likely to last if you wait until after the early spring rains have let up. Heat and sunshine will also help keep mold and mildew from growing back on the freshly cleaned surfaces.
