Could Pressure Washing Help Keep Your Home Insect Free?
Anyone living in Florida knows that with the rise in summer temps and humidity come mosquitoes and other bugs. These bugs, when they live on and engulf your property, make going outside and enjoying your yard a problem.
Pressure washing isn’t often thought of as a bug deterrent, but the truth is that it sure can help.
Bugs, particularly insects including mosquitos, are more active during the summer months. They thrive and reproduce as they are cold-blooded and rely on the atmospheric temperature to sustain themselves.
Neglecting the exterior of your home can lead to some serious problems over time both inside and out.
Pressure Washing Keeps Bugs at Bay
Cockroaches, termites, fire ants, ladybugs, beetles, centipedes, wasps, and bees can use the outside walls and roofing of your home as a breeding site if it has not been pressure washed in a long time.
They can build nests on the crevices, siding folds, or in other areas that may serve as hiding places. If left unchecked, a small infestation can become gigantic and problematic. Many bugs can be difficult to remove from walls, fences, cars, patios, and other outdoor surfaces due to their sticky residue. Their secretions can degrade paint and other coatings, damaging your home.
Preventing insect infestations outside also helps prevent them from making their way inside your walls and into your living areas. Infestation inside the walls or inside the home can wreak havoc on your life as well as your health and well-being. In the long run getting rid of bugs in your home can be costly. Power washing is also a great way to avoid having to use toxic bug sprays or pesticides (which are not good for pets or humans despite being approved for sale and labeled as safe.)
It pays to employ a professional washing service yearly to do a good thorough cleaning of your home to help reduce the bug populous. This leads to a much more user-friendly yard space as well!
