Admit it, you hate to clean! No matter the job, it can be difficult, but especially when talking about the exterior of your home can the cleaning be not just tough, but also dangerous as well! Ladders aren't always secure and of course a wimpy garden hose often doesn't do the job. But, if you hire a professional exterior cleaning service you can get your home's exterior cleaned safely and correctly the first time.

What are the benefits of hiring a professional to clean the outside of your home?

  • Crews are professionals and trained in this cleaning work so they know how to get the job done right.
  • These crews also have the right tools for the job.
  • Their cleaning materials won't damage your home and also won't damage the environment or your landscaping either!
  • When selling your home, having it professionally cleaned can increase the curb appeal and its value as well.
  • If you don't clean the home properly, this could actually damage it.
  • Damage done by cleaning it improperly can actually void your insurance policy, the warranty on your home's vinyl siding, and other warranties or guarantees you have.
  • Cleaning your home professionally can keep mold from growing as well.

A professional house cleaner will use the right materials and techniques so as to get your home cleaned as quickly and effortlessly as possible. You might take a second look at your own home and wonder why you didn't get it done sooner!

When you're going to hire a professional exterior cleaning service, be sure to ask:

  • If they are licensed to work in and if they are bonded as well.
  • If they are certified or have had training in this type of cleaning.
  • How long that training process was and what it entailed.
  • How experienced they are with this type of work.
  • How long they expect the process to take, especially if they assume it will be longer than just one day.
  • The precautions they'll take to protect any special landscaping or outdoor furniture and other items you may have.

Typically a nationally known franchise will have crews that are very experienced and well trained in these areas. Of course you can use smaller, lesser know companies as many of them do what's necessary to compete with those larger companies. No matter who you hire, be sure to check references. Interview and be familiar with anyone that will be working on your home, especially if they're working around your family.

Also, be sure everything about the job is put in writing. This means any of the outside structures that are included, such as garages or sheds, as well as the windows of the home.
