Our team at Integrity Homes & Construction Inc. wants to help you keep your home or commercial building in great condition, and we have the right experience and knowledge to do just that. In our experience, one material that is popular for both residential and commercial buildings is stucco, and in this article, we will provide a few tips on how to keep your stucco in great condition.
- Washing – The first thing you should do to maintain your stucco walls is wash them to get rid of dirt, grime, mold, and other contaminants. This will help prevent unnecessary wear and tear and keep your stucco looking great. You can use a simple garden hose to wash your stucco walls, or you can have them pressure washed to get more thorough results. Whatever method you choose, we recommend first scrubbing the walls with dish soap or applying a bleach solution to loosen the dirt and kill mold, algae, and other microorganisms, as this will yield better long-term results.
- Patching and Caulking – Another key part of stucco maintenance is inspecting the walls for hairline cracks, and then patching those cracks as soon as possible to prevent them from spreading. You will also need to check the seams around your windows, doors, and other features and apply new caulking when necessary to maintain an airtight seal.
