Kerb appeal can seem like one of those mystery things that a home either has or doesn’t have. Perhaps your own home started out with some great kerb appeal, but over the years it seems to have faded and now it’s no longer the house you would take a second-glance at. So how do you get that kerb appeal back? How can you spruce it up and have it looking lovely again? Sometimes all it takes is a thorough clean.
For many households, Spring Cleaning has become something of a passion for homeowners. Over the years, the nature of spring cleaning has changed quite a lot. It wasn’t long ago that spring cleaning was something most of us would reluctantly do only out of necessity.
Now, however, being responsible adults, spring cleaning has become one of the most important dates in our calendars. When spring cleaning is done right, it can bring enormous benefits to homeowners. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can make the most out of your next spring clean.
Keeping a wooden deck in good shape can take a lot of hard work. Even if you stain or seal it when you first install it, the boards can still go grey, crack and splinter over time, which makes the deck look old and worn. Thankfully, if you deck is beginning to look like this, there’s no need to rip it down and install a new one. By using the right products and techniques, you can restore your deck to make it look as good as new.
Spring has finally sprung and with the weather now feeling lovely and warm it’s time to attempt a few tasks that you may have been putting off since Winter. To-do-lists will often include cleaning outdoor entertaining areas, paths around the home, driveways and even the house walls or roof. If you have any, or dare I say it, all of the above jobs to complete, it’s a good idea to consider hiring a floor scrubber or water pressure cleaner. Not only will this help make your life easier, but you’ll also see a much better end result than you would with a garden hose. And the good news is that water pressure cleaners will actually use less water than a regular garden hose while cleaning more efficiently. It’s a win win situation.
Water pressure cleaning your outdoor areas, even your walls, should one of the essential routines of any home owner before venturing outside to enjoy a summer meal on the back deck, drinks by the pool or playing with toys on the concrete or paved areas. Prepping and cleaning these areas can be made easy by hiring either an electric or petrol water pressure cleaner.
Should you wish to try water pressure cleaning yourself but aren’t quite sure where or how to start, we’ve put together these steps to help you through the process. And, as always, read the safety and operating instructions that come with the pressure washer as well.
