The exterior of your house plays an important role in protecting it from the elements and keeping it clean. If you want to keep your home safe, there are some simple steps that you should follow in order to protect the exterior paint job.
Keep your house exterior free from moss, mildew, and algae
You can help keep your house exterior free from moss, mildew, and algae by washing it with a power washer. To do this:
• Clean the siding using a pressure washer with an adjustable nozzle that will allow you to adjust the pressure.
• Start at low pressure and work up until all of the dirt has been removed from each section of siding and gutters before moving on to another section of house exterior paint protection.
Clean your house after every season
To keep your exterior house paint safe and protected, you should clean your house after every season. The best time to do this is in the spring, summer, fall, and winter.
• Spring – This is the best time of year to clean your home because there are no leaves on the trees yet so it’s easy to see what needs to be cleaned up before they fall off onto your roof or siding during autumn months. You can use a pressure washer or garden hose with soap as well as some scrubbing tools like sponges or brushes if needed.
• Summer – If there are any mosses growing on any part of your roof then now would be an ideal time for removing them by using chemicals such as bleach mixed with water (1:10 ratio). Don’t forget about those gutters too! Make sure that they’re clear from debris before starting work elsewhere around outside surfaces like windowsills/trim etcetera.
Use quality exterior paint
When it comes to exterior house paint, quality matters. The better the quality of exterior paint you use, the longer it will last, and the less likely it is that you’ll have to repaint again.
Quality exterior house paints contain fewer fillers than cheap paints do. Fillers are added to make up for a lack of pigment in low-quality exterior paints, but they can also make your home look duller over time, and they’re not good for your health.
Paint with all-weather paint
All-weather paint is a great way to protect your exterior house paint from harsh weather conditions. It can withstand harsh temperatures, UV rays, and moisture. All-weather paints are especially important if you live in a climate that gets very hot or cold during different times of the year. All-weather paints come in several different varieties, including acrylic latex and vinyl acrylic emulsion.
Use a primer for exterior walls if needed
Primer is a thin layer of paint that is applied before the top coat. It can be used to fill in cracks and crevices, or provide a smooth surface for painting. Primer can also be used as an additional sealant for your exterior walls. If you have an old house with chipped paint, it’s best to prime it first so that the new color covers better without having to use too much paint on top of the old one (which would make it more expensive).
Protect your home from harmful ultraviolet rays (UV rays)
UV rays are harmful. They can cause fading, cracking, and peeling on your house’s siding and roof. To protect against UV rays, you should use good quality paint that has been tested for resistance to fading by the manufacturer.
If you’re going to be painting over an existing coat of paint, make sure that all previous coats have been cured for at least six months before applying another one. If possible, take down any screens or shades from windows so they don’t block out any natural light from reaching areas where you’re painting, this will help keep them from getting too warm inside while drying out in hot weather conditions outside without being able to ventilate properly due to lack of ventilation options available within those same rooms being painted right now.
House can be a safe place to live if the exterior is taken care of properly
If you don’t take care of your house properly, then it will look bad and won’t be safe for living in. To keep your home looking great and in good condition, there are some things you should do:
• Clean regularly – make sure that there are no stains or dirt on the walls or windowsills so they can be cleaned off easily by using soap and water or another cleaning product. You should also try to clean inside windows too because this will help prevent mold from growing on them over time which could cause health problems if inhaled into lungs through breathing air currents around those areas where mold grows (e., under eaves).
• Paint regularly – once every year at least! Painting helps protect wood against rot caused by UV rays as well as insect damage caused by termites eating away at wood which could lead up towards rotting away completely if left untreated long enough (about 6 months-1 year+ depending upon severity). Paint also helps protect against moisture penetration into cracks between boards due having been exposed over time due lack maintenance caretaking actions taken during previous ownerships’ tenure(s) before yours own came along today; thus preventing further damage occurring later down road due prolonged exposure times being allowed pass without any intervention whatsoever taking place beforehand.
