The house is best maintained with an annual wash. It removes both dirt and harmful mold and algae growth, leaving the house looking clean and well-maintained after just a few hours of work.

While washing, you also get a good overview of any other maintenance tasks you should plan for this season. It could be a panel board that needs replacing, a wall that needs a fresh coat of paint, or a fence that needs staining. Boards that are damaged or full of cracks from before can be replaced before washing begins.

As soon as the temperatures rise, you should wash the decking and exterior panels with a brush, soap, and water. You can also use other cleaning agents available on the market; consult a specialist for advice.

Using a pressure washer should be done with caution as it can roughen up the wood surface, creating cracks and damaging the wood.
