House Paint Preparation

Need to prep your house before painting?

The next thing you hear is “honey we need to paint the house”. If your like most homeowners many hard working folks can’t afford the high price that painting contractors charge for painting your home, So you decide that your going to do it yourself. You take a close look around your homes exterior and find that there is more paint flaking off than you originally thought.

Pristine Pressure Cleaning can handle even the worst paint preparation issues. When we arrive we will first apply a mildewcide and a house wash detergent to all exterior walls, fascia, soffits, around windows, doors, etc… To kill any mold, mildew and fungus. Painting over these without killing and removing them will only allow them to eat through your fresh paint in a matter of months if not weeks making all your hard work a complete waste of time. These are living organisms that eat organic materials such as the one found in paint. The second step consists of pressure cleaning to remove all loose flaky paint, chalk residue, dirt, dead mold and of course your unwanted non-paying tenants, spiders, bugs and wasps. Once this process has been completed and left to dry you will be ready for priming and painting your house. Painting your own home can be both fun and rewarding but remember the most important part is preparing the surfaces which are to be painted. In turn this will give your home a longer lasting paint job that will look great for years to come. So stop worrying about where to start. We’ll take care of that! All you need to do is start picking out colors and finding phone numbers of long lost friends and family to invite over to help you paint.
