Is your home looking like it could use a pressure wash? Depending on the time of year, you may wonder whether or not you can even have a pressure wash done or if the weather will impact the effectiveness of a pressure wash. You can have your home pressure washed all year round – but the weather and temperatures do play a role in this.
Here’s what you need to know about how weather affects the effectiveness of a pressure wash so that you can have a better idea of when you can and cannot have your home pressure washed.
Are There Times You Cannot Get A Pressure Wash?
Absolutely. If you’re ever in doubt about whether or not the weather and temperatures are suitable for a pressure wash, you can count on the professionals to let you know either way. This can also be a way for you to know just how experienced and high-quality a pressure washing company is.
For instance, if a pressure washing company says that the freezing temperatures and the snow storm outside are no barrier to the effectiveness of a pressure wash… You should find another pressure washing company.
That said, you may be surprised about how often you can get a pressure wash. Many people assume that you cannot get a pressure wash during the winter months because it is too cold. This is something that very much depends on where you live. However, so long as the temperatures are above freezing and it’s nice and sunny, you shouldn’t need to worry about the weather impacting the effectiveness of a pressure wash.
How Do You Know If Weather Will Impact The Effectiveness Of A Pressure Wash?
When in doubt, it’s always best to consult with your local professional pressure washing company. When scheduling, they will look at factors like the weather. If the weather would impact the effectiveness of a pressure wash, they’ll reschedule.
Just like you want quality service for your money, quality professionals want to ensure that they provide you with a job well done. If the weather will impact the effectiveness of a pressure wash, they’ll let you know and reschedule as soon as possible so that you can get your home nice and clean again.
What Weather Impacts The Effectiveness Of A Pressure Wash?
So, we already touched on freezing temperatures and clear skies. You generally want temperatures to be 40 degrees Fahrenheit or higher in order to prevent issues that can result from freezing temperatures. Depending on where you live, this may mean that you can or cannot have pressure washing done during the winter months.
If the temperatures are freezing, this can lead to issues with the pressure washing equipment itself, as well as structural problems with your home. Water expands when it freezes, so pressure washing in freezing temperatures could result in damage, which nobody wants.
Other weather that impacts the effectiveness of a pressure wash include:
- Snow storms
- Rain storms
- High winds
- Cloudy skies on cold days
Plus, if there is thunder and lightning, your pressure wash will need to be rescheduled for safety purposes.
What Is The Ideal Weather For Pressure Washing?
Ideally, temperatures will be above freezing, the weather will be mild, and there will be plenty of sunlight. This is why spring through fall are the busiest times of the year for pressure washers.
You need enough sunlight in order for your property to dry properly and for the pressure washing technicians to be able to see every area that needs to be cleaned. You need mild weather, because otherwise, the weather will impact the effectiveness of a pressure wash by just causing dirt to accumulate. We have already touched on why you need to temperatures to be above freezing.
What Is The Best Time Of Year To Schedule A Pressure Wash?
Most people schedule pressure washes during the spring and during the fall. This is both because the weather tends to favor this service during these seasons and also for practical purposes. Pressure washing during the spring helps to remove the buildup of dirt and debris from the winter months. Pressure washing during the fall helps to prepare your home for the winter months.
