From a safety perspective, it’s no different from tree trimming. If you don’t know what you are doing, you can do a lot of damage to your property, or worse yourself. Some surfaces should not be power washed, while others simply need a lower pressure.
The curb appeal to your property is more valuable than you expect. The curb appeal refers to the quality of your property and how well it looks from street level, especially regarding highly visible things like your driveway. The point is critical if you’re trying to increase your home’s resale value.

Pressure washing your driveway allows this essential part of your property to look more attractive. It creates a comforting look when pulling up in your home.
