Taking these preparatory steps will ensure the exterior house painting will be a success.There is no use putting on a new coat of paint over damaged wood, stucco or siding, so start by thoroughly checking the overall condition before tackling the exterior house painting.

Make notes of all that has to be done, and set aside a period of time to complete the work.Molds and mildews can penetrate wood and damage it. Clean it away with a solution of TSP, or trisodium phosphate. Household bleach in water will also do the job. Rinse the area well once you have scrubbed the mold away, and then allow it time to dry completely.If you have found any patches of mold or mildew, these must be thoroughly removed and the area cleaned.
Either a solution of water and bleach or TSP (trisodium phosphate) will kill any remaining mold. Scrub the area with a soft brush, rinse it well, and then dry it completely.Do not forget to wash down the siding or stucco. Dirt, pollens and dust will be present, even if they are not visible. Your new paint will adhere much better to clean siding. Old paint has what is referred to as 'bloom' that should be washed away. This is caused by exposure to sun and weather. A pressure washer is the best tool for this step in preparing for your exterior house painting.When all repairs have been completed to your satisfaction, the entire outer area must be washed down.
