6 Easy Ways To Add Instant Value To Your Home Part 5
Part 5. High Pressure Clean Old Surfaces
Clean surfaces that look as good as new is important because nothing says neglect like a dirty looking house. No matter what kind of home you have, it will always look cared for if it is kept clean. Pressure cleaners are a great way to remove things like dirt, mildew, and oil from a variety of surfaces to make them look clean and like new again. Over a weekend it’s perfectly achievable to hire a high-pressure water cleaner and tackle surfaces like:
- Courtyard pavers
- Outdoor decks
- Driveways and garage floors
- The grout in between bricks and outdoor tiles
Make sure you do plenty of research so you know exactly what attachments, water pressure and detergents you will need for different surfaces. This is important as you don’t want to end up causing any damage to your home. Of course, if your budget allows, you can always hire a professional to do it for you. An average cost is around $150-$250 for anywhere up to 40 square metres.
A neglected garden lowers your home’s value by somewhere between 5-15%.
