Exterior House Washing
When’s the last time your house was washed? Whether your home is vinyl, cedar, brick, or stucco, it’s normal to see some dirt and grime buildup over the years. But not many homeowners put house washing at the top of their to-do lists, which can be a costly oversight. For starters, a dirty exterior can ding your home’s curb appeal – a pretty big deal for anyone looking to sell. But more importantly, it can create the perfect environment for things like mildew, fungus, and algae, which when ignored, can lead to long-term damage.
If your house is looking dingy or stained, we’re here to help! Scrubbing the entire thing yourself would be a huge undertaking, but when you contact Midwest Exteriors MN, we’ll get the project done quickly and efficiently. Our low-pressure house washing method eliminates mildew, algae, streaks, dirt, and more, without damaging your home’s exterior. Call 651-346-9477 to schedule an appointment!
Our House Washing Method
Some contractors and homeowners use pressure washers to clean exteriors, but that method is better suited for concrete or hardscapes. Using a high PSI of water pressure on the surface of your home can strip paint, crack siding, or blast water inside. You risk water damage, discoloration, and even broken windows with high-pressure house washing.
After more than 20 years working with various materials, our contractors understand the best way to care for vinyl, cedar, brick, wood, stucco, and other common home exteriors. By using warm water at a low pressure, we’re able to melt off dirt and grime and restore surfaces to their original color. Our team can safely and thoroughly clean the exterior of most homes in just a day. Contact us to learn more or schedule an appointment!
House Washing FAQs

Harmful contaminants can build up on your home’s exterior over time. Cleaning it periodically will help remove mildew, fungus, algae, salt, and other grime that can lead to bigger issues.
If you never wash your house, the contaminants it collects can cause permanent stains or even degrade materials to the point where expensive repairs are necessary. At the very least, the dirty appearance of your home will affect its curb appeal.
The stuff that collects on your home’s outer surfaces does more than just make your home look dirty. That’s why it’s important to consider house washing as a part of your yearly routine maintenance – especially for homes in shady or damp areas where mold and mildew thrive.
When it comes to water pressure and your home’s exterior, too much pressure causes damage, while too little pressure is not enough to remove dirt, stains, and other grime. Many homeowners who attempt house washing without experience end up denting their homes or stripping paint off in an attempt to save money. Hiring a professional for house washing ensures a safe, effective result. Midwest Exteriors MN technicians are highly trained and use special equipment to get the job done right.
Not all issues with your home’s exterior can be washed away. Signs that indicate your siding needs to be replaced include:
- Wavy siding or swelling
- Paint or caulk failure
- Mold or dry rot
- Separation of seams
- Moisture inside your home
If you ignore these signs, you run the risk of water intrusion, mold, wet insulation, and damage to the physical structure of your home.
