It is the time of the year for watery eyes, runny noses, and itchy throats. Pollen is our least favorite part of spring, and not only can it be troublesome for those who have allergies or asthma, but pollen makes everything look dirty. We can all agree the pollen count has been especially high this year, and unfortunately, it can remain on your home’s exterior if steps are not taken to remove it properly. It’s not a pleasant experience when you walk out to your patio or walkway and discover the surface is covered in pollen.

So, even when you want to enjoy your outdoor spaces, layers of allergens can drive you back inside. Pressure washing is a great solution because it will clean mold, mildew, and pollen effectively from the siding, driveways, decks, and other outside areas of your home. 

There is no better place to live than Asheville, NC. Our area has everything you could desire. We are surrounded by the tallest mountains east of the Mississippi River, with thousands of miles of hiking trails to explore. From camping to rock climbing, fly fishing to whitewater rafting, if you enjoy the outdoors, there is no shortage of things to do. The metropolitan area is not as large as Charlotte or Greenville; yet, we have most of the same big-city amenities. We have excellent public education and healthcare, as well as world-class restaurants and excellent shopping. There is far more to do than we can ever accomplish in a lifetime. 

The one downside to having everything is that it comes with every type of weather. That, of course, includes plenty of delightfully sunny and mild days; however, we also have bouts of heavy rain, extreme winds, snow, ice, and occasionally brutal cold. We even get the occasional inland tropical storm that holds together after making landfall in the Gulf of Mexico. 

When it comes to weather, having it all means doing a number on your home's exterior and your outdoor surfaces. Your beautiful Asheville home can become dirty and dingy quickly here. Besides being the scourge of the HOA, that ugly grime is doing damage and reducing the lifespan of your siding, deck, and outdoor furniture.

While your roof is built to protect your home from the spring rain, proper maintenance is needed for them to stand up to disastrous weather. Spring is arriving, and many homeowners are taking the opportunity to clean the exterior of their home and begin yard work to improve their property’s appearance. It’s also crucial that you should prepare your home for the unpredictable spring weather. If your home is not prepared to withstand heavy storms, your roof could sustain minor damages or leaks from thunderstorms and other types of severe weather.

Spring cleaning isn’t just for the inside of your home. Your outdoor space needs just as much attention when it comes to cleaning. Some tough cleaning jobs need a little backup that requires the power of a pressure washer to blast those stubborn stains on your home’s exterior, driveway, and fence. Read on to see why you should include pressure washing in your spring cleaning routine and featured outdoor cleaning tasks.
