Let’s face it, every home has it’s own story with memories created under a roof.
They are there before we move in and will continue after we move out.
It’s pretty special…
Every home is special, and when it is put on the market, it’s best to make it shine like those favorite memories.
Just like wearing a beautiful gown to a wedding or dressing up for a special occasion.
This is the moment where a home should sparkle, inside and out.
Like little orphan Annie said, it should shine, “Like the top of the Chrysler Building”!
In this series I am going to share with you how I got my home ready to sell.
I hope it helps you if, and when, you decide to sell.
Where did I begin?
We’ve heard about curb appeal and how important it is.
Well, here it definitely is!
We want potential buyers to drive by… and stay awhile.
We want them to look… imagine, and think… hmmm… I wonder what it’s like inside?
This is why I recommend pressure washing.
It’s amazing the dirt and grime we live with every day.
It dulls the appearance of our homes
and the concrete we continuously walk and drive our cars on.
This is where the Ryobi 3100PSI Power Pressure Washer saves the day.
You know how much I LOVE Ryobi Power Tools, and the same holds true for
I really enjoy the fact that Ryobi’s Pressure Washer is super easy to start.
The neighbors couldn’t laugh at me this time…
Nope! No way!
(Typically my husband mows the lawn, but when he is out of town, I am fighting with my mower because I can’t start it… I end up pulling out my hair until I just can’t take it anymore! I go over to my neighbor asking him to start my mower… with a little effort, he starts it. How does that happen? Anyway…)
It says “easy start” right by the starter grip and rope. I got nervous knowing the history with my mower (not Ryobi).
With one pull, I had this pretty incredible machine running.
Yay! I did it!
Now, this is a little embarrassing.
My concrete was extremely dirty… pretty bad.
I didn’t realize how dirty until I decided to have a little fun with the pressure washer.
I wanted to see how it could cut through dirt.
it definitely does the job – quickly I might add.
That’s why I always say,
Now I know why pressure washing is an addiction.
The dirt disappears like an eraser to chalk on a chalkboard.
***When using a pressure washer
always remember to follow good safety measures.
Wear protective gear
protective eyewear, shoes, pants, and gloves are a must.
Also, this goes without saying…
but I’ll say it anyway…
never, ever, point this at anyone
and read the operator’s manual before using.***
Oh yeah, pressure washing is fun…
Now I can clean inside and outside of gutters
as well as siding on my home.
Think about fences and retaining walls…
the list goes on.
See what I mean… I’m a Pressure Washing Addict!
As you can see…
Pressure washing is a must.
It not only is needed before selling a home,
but also every Spring so our homes can shine with great curb appeal year after year.
Now, if you haven’t done so already…
get out there and grab your pressure washer and make your home sparkle too.
After you’ve pressure washed, head back here.
There’s more to accomplish outside in this series

…and how you can too!
Every. Single. Moment.
