Your house’s exterior is built to last, made from tough materials that can withstand wind, rain, and anything else the elements throw at it. But these materials can eventually break down, especially without proper maintenance.

Part of that maintenance is cleaning and sanitization. Maintaining these exterior areas improves your home’s curb appeal, but it also serves a much more important role: protecting your home. Mold and mildew grow easily in these places, and any breach in the structure invites it into your home.

Pressure Washing

Your best friend for exterior house cleaning is a good pressure washer. Pressure washers typically feed directly from an exterior faucet, but you still have to fill them with a good cleaner. We recommend one with strong degreasing qualities to cut through muck and grime. Pressure washers also work great on decks, patios, and driveways.


Your windows, however, should not be pressure washed! The high pressure can break glass, causing huge headaches. Exterior windows can be cleaned with standard glass cleaner; the tricky part comes in reaching upstairs or in other weird locations.

Sani-Chem sells extension poles and sprayers that allow you to wash all of your windows safely.
