Is It Time To Clean The Outside Of Your Home?

Many of us regularly carry out spring cleans of our home’s interior, but rarely even clean the outside of our home. A dirty exterior can make your home look less attractive. Dirt, algae, moss, and debris can also cause damage in some cases if you don’t clean them away occasionally. This post lists some of the important home exterior cleaning tasks to keep on top of.

Windows

Dirt and mold can build up on the exterior of windows over time. This can distort the view, reduce the amount of light coming in and corrode the glass and frames. You should try to clean the outside of windows once to twice per year to prevent this. 

This guide on how to clean the outside of your windows offers a few tips for making this task easier. When it comes to cleaning upper storey windows, some people find it safer to hire professionals. 

Doors

Doors can collect lots of grime over time, which can stain and corrode them if not cleaned off. A dirty door also doesn’t create a great first impression. For this reason, you should make a habit of regularly wiping down your front door.

On top of cleaning the door itself, make sure to tidy around it. Porches can collect cobwebs over time, which you don’t want guests to get their hair caught up in – make sure to regularly get rid of these.  

Roof

A dirty roof can devalue your property. Moss and algae can also contribute to gradual roof damage, shortening the overall life of your roof.

This is why it’s worth cleaning your roof every one to two years. You may be able to climb up onto the roof and do this yourself, however in most cases, it’s safer and more efficient to hire roof cleaning services. Scheduling an annual clean could ensure that you don’t forget.

Siding

The sides of a house can also get dirty over time. Whether you’ve got wooden siding or stone cladding, it’s important to occasionally wipe it down. This can similarly prevent damage and help you maintain curb appeal. 

You can do this yourself or you can hire someone to do it. As with window cleaning and roof cleaning, hiring a professional can be safer when it comes to accessing those higher areas, although it may be possible to do it from the ground using a pressure washer on a low setting. 

Gutters

One of the most important exterior cleaning jobs involves cleaning out gutters. If guttering becomes blocked with leaves, it can prevent water from draining properly – instead causing it to spill out over the sides where it can run the risk of causing damage to foundations

The best times to clean out your gutters are the end of Fall and the beginning of Spring. You may be able to climb up to the roof on a ladder and clean the gutters yourself. Alternatively, you can hire a professional to clean them out for you. This could be necessary if the downspout is blocked.
