Can You Pressure Wash in Cold Weather?

During cooler winter months, many people make the decision that outside maintenance is complete, and should not be worried about until the warm days of Spring appear. Although this may be true for many property owners, it does not necessarily have to be that way for everyone.

Many building materials can be easily pressure washed during the winter months. Just because it is cold outside, does not mean that mold and mildew will not develop; in fact, winter moisture provides for an excellent opportunity for mold and mildew to develop on the surface of some building materials.

Areas such as walkways, patios, and driveways can be cleaned when the temperature is low. By having these areas pressure cleaned during the wintertime, you will be able to remove dirt, rust stains, marks on the pavement from fallen leaves, and any other stain that has developed over time. In fact, if these projects are taken care of during the winter, then you avoid having to mark-off a couple of weeks in the Spring for outdoor cleaning projects. Instead, your outdoor space will be ready and waiting for you when the warmer days arrive.

You can also use the winter months to take care of cleaning chores that are not all outdoors. Areas such as covered porches, screened-in rooms, garages, and other similar areas, can be easily and effectively cleaned during the cooler months. If you have these projects taken care of now, then when early Spring arrives, you will have a clean space that can be enjoyed, while more outdoor areas are still being cleaned.

Pressure washing projects during the winter months should be performed by pressure washing professionals. The experts know what type of building materials can be cleaned when the air temperature is cool. They will also know the right amount of water pressure to use on each individual project.

In conclusion, the answer is “Yes”. Pressure washing projects can be performed during the winter months, and in many ways, maybe the best time to take care of some outdoor cleaning projects. Projects that can be done now, will relieve you of some cleaning chores in the Spring!
