Most may associate pressure cleaning with their home maintenance; cleaning the roof, driveways, siding and sidewalks. However, commercial business properties can also benefit from a thorough pressure cleaning just the same.
The main reason for commercial pressure washing is to keep an exterior looking clean and fresh. A dirty appearance on the outside can present a negative opinion to your employees, clients, and customers, especially on first impression. Weather wreaks havoc on your property. Wind, rain and sun leave everything dirty and mildewed on surfaces of buildings, walkways, parking areas. It is an unsightly green and or brown on walls and ground surfaces. Paying attention to the outside of your building, shows that you care just as much about all the other details of your business as well.
The dangers that arise with mold and mildew, are also an important factor to consider when deciding on power washing your business’ exterior. Your employees and customers can slip and fall on moldy mildewed surfaces. Not only do they get hurt, but it may also involve litigation, which can be costly.
Pressure washing is also cost-effective as it keeps building repairs down. If you have wood siding, mold and mildew can ruin the wood. It could also possibly start creeping inside and therefore affecting employees’ and owners’ health and aesthetic appearance. The roof and gutters are also just as important. Grime builds up on the roof then runs off into gutters, along with leaves and tree branches. Gutters are an absolute must to have done. All of the roof runoff and leaves build up and cause gutters to become heavy, detaching from the building, which causes them to not do the job they are supposed to, which is protect the building from damage, inside and out. If a gutter fills up, the water starts to go into the walls which causes considerable damage inside.
The best thing to do is to have your building pressure cleaned regularly. There will still be some build-up at times, but it is much easier to maintain if you have it done often. Not only does it enhance the appearance of your building, it also increases its aesthetic value. If you plan to sell, one looks at a clean building before a dirty one.
Make sure to use a professional commercial pressure washing company. Professionals know exactly what types of chemicals to use on every surface. They also know how much pressure should be used on certain surfaces. High power is usually used on wood decks and concrete sidewalks, while less power is used on siding and gutters. Too much pressure on siding and gutters could cause them to come loose, and damage the building.
