We have lived in our beautiful home for six years now. all the while I have maintain a clean home on the inside and have tried my best to keep check in cleaning the outside furniture at least twice a year. Mainly to get pollen off so you can sit on chair without getting your breeches dirty. The outside of our home has been on Shaun's mind for a little bit know and a couple of weeks ago, and after the two nests of birds who call our porch home had flown the coop, he decided to give it a bath with the pressure washer. Man! What a difference it has made. Our porch looks almost brand new! So clean and bright. I didn't truly realize how bad it was. I guess I was used to it.
Now, if it ever stops raining for a bit, we plan on sealing the wood. Maybe then we can just hose it off when it needs it again.
Porchy stuff gets pushed to one side during the cleaning.
