3 Tips for Pressure Washing Your Louisville Home before Listing It for Sale

By Family Realty, LLC

If you’re planning on selling your Louisville Home in the coming months one of the very best things you can do to get your home ready for sale is to pressure wash it.

Pressure washing a home is an effective step at removing months or years of dirt from the exterior of a home and get it ready for new exterior paint or cleaner for when prospective home buyers arrive.

Tip 1 – Safety First

Since you may be renting a gas powered pressure washer you should shut off the power to your home to prevent possible electrocution and keep yourself safe when you are washing your home.

Before you start pressure washing your Louisville Home you should close all doors and windows then use electrical outlet covers to cover up and outdoor electrical outlets because you don’t want to get those wet.

Once you start your pressure washer up you will then wan to focus on staying at least 10 inches or more away from the surface of your home to insure that the force from the water doesn’t cause any siding to come off.

Tip 2 – When to Use a Pressure Washer

Since a pressure washer can be difficult to use its best to use one on days when there isn’t a lot of wind or outside distractions.

Tip 3 – About Pressure Washers

Start pressure washing your Louisville home with a wide fan on the pressure washing nozzle or 15-25 degrees then 1500 dpi as your pressure.

No matter which side of your home you may be pressure washing make sure you start washing the top of your home so that the dirt falls downward.

Always be mindful to use low pressure when washing your Louisville home, especially on windows, because, you can easily clean the exterior of your home without causing damage.
