Whether you are painting your home yourself or hiring a professional home painter, pressure washing is an important step especially when painting the exterior parts of the house. Pressure washing is done when one is preparing the exterior walls of a house for painting. It ensures that the surface is clean and free from grease, oil and loose paint. This enables proper bonding of the paint to the surface.
It is more economical for the home painter to have their own pressure washer. However for those home painters who do not have a pressure washer, they can hire other people to do the pressure washing or hire a pressure washer. Most home owners who paint their own houses usually hire other people to do the pressure washing.
After the surface has been cleaned it is allowed to dry before the paint is applied. Exterior surfaces that are painted without being pressure washed first do not last long. The paint loosens and flakes more easily. This is especially so in areas such as Longboat key Florida which experience weather conditions such as high humidity and rainfall that cause faster wearing of exterior painting. Pressure washing is very important in exterior painting.
