Winter is Around the Corner. How Can You Prep Your Roof and Walls for Colder Weather?

Winter in Florida is different from just about anywhere else, but it’s still worth preparing your property for. Florida winters mark the end of hurricane season, ushering in relatively calm weather after a year’s worth of thunderstorms (and the debris they bring). This makes winter the perfect time to give your home and property some extra TLC, starting with cleaning them. Today, we’re going over some of the ways you can prep your roof and walls for colder weather, as well as for the new year to come.

Inspect Your Roof

As hurricane season (and summer thunderstorm season before it) comes to an end, it’s a good idea to inspect your roof. Make sure that it is structurally intact and that no shingles or other components are loose or missing. If it’s been a long time since your roof was updated and you notice some signs of wear and tear, definitely plan for a repair before you get any pressure washing done on your home.

Pressure Wash Before Hanging Up Christmas Lights

If you want to set up a show-stopping Christmas light display on your property, it’s a good idea to make sure that your home is pressure washed first. Clear surfaces will help your Christmas decorations stand out, and unsightly stains or marks won’t take away from your light decor.

Of course, aesthetic appeal isn’t the only reason why getting your home professionally pressure washed is a good idea. Christmas lights are beautiful, but they can also prevent you from noticing potentially harmful debris – like algae, mold, or mildew – if it starts to grow on your home’s exteriors. Give yourself a blank canvas for holiday decorations and ensure that your property is as safe as it is beautiful this Christmas season.

The Benefits of Pressure Washing Your Home

Even if Christmas lights aren’t your style, the end of the year is a great time to get your home professionally cleaned and ready for the year to come. Pressure washing is a great way to make your home look better and to preserve its structural integrity. Some of the benefits of a professional pressure wash include:

It significantly boosts curbside appeal and improves your property’s value. If you’re thinking about putting your home on the market in the new year, professional cleaning is a must.


It prevents the buildup of debris and the growth of potentially harmful things, like algae and mold.


It primes your home for repainting or redecorating. If you want this new year to be a time to breathe some new life into your home with fresh paint and new decorations, a professional power wash is a great way to start.

The holiday season is called the most wonderful time of the year for good reason: it’s a time to bond with family, reflect on the accomplishments of the past year, and set new goals for the year to come. Getting your home’s exteriors professionally cleaned is a great way to set the foundation for a successful end of the year and a fresh start in the new year.
