Time of year to keep up your home's curb appeal

December 04, 2008|By NAPSA

Fall is a perfect time for completing outdoor maintenance projects that'll keep your home looking great and help make spring cleanup easier than ever. Here are a few ideas from the home-improvement experts at Zinsser:

Keep it clean. Many homeowners take advantage of the beautiful spring weather to do outdoor projects. But fall is also a great time to spruce up the outside of your home. JOMAX House Wash is great for maintenance cleaning between seasons. Its built-in hose-mount is easy to use. Just attach to your garden hose, clean, then rinse. JOMAX House Wash washes away dirt, algae and mildew stains on vinyl, stucco, brick, wood, aluminum and painted surfaces.

Don't forget the roof. A beautiful home begins from the ground up and a clean roof is like icing on a cake. The hot summer sun often discourages homeowners from getting up on a ladder-so take advantage of the cooler weather and clean your roof. JOMAX Roof Cleaner removes black streaks, dirt and mildew stains from asphalt, wood, metal and composite roofs. Plus, it kills mold and mildew on tile, slate and other nonporous roofs. While you're up there, make sure your gutters are clean and clear of any debris like dirt, sticks and leaves to prevent blockage.

Make outdoor furniture last. The key to keeping outdoor furniture and accessories looking great for years is to make sure dirt, grime, algae, mildew stains and odors don't remain on your furniture. Many homeowners decide to bring outdoor furniture in or cover it up when the winter weather begins to roll in. Cleaning your outdoor pieces before packing them away will prevent contaminants like mold and mildew from changing their appearance. Try using JOMAX Mold & Mildew Stain Remover-great for use on plastic and vinyl. It cleans and removes mold and mildew stains. Plus, the fast-acting, bleach formula is easy to use-just apply, wait 10 minutes and rinse off-no scrubbing required! Here's a tip: Protect outdoor pieces with a sheet, tarp or specialty cover to prevent water and weather damage.
