Built-up dirt and grime can wreak havoc on commercial buildings, giving them a worn-down appearance and causing long-term structural damage if left unattended.
Power washing is an effective and safe way to give your property’s exteriors – including walls and paved walkways – a facelift, leaving them thoroughly cleaned and refreshing their appearance.
Check out these four benefits of power washing your commercial building:
1. Boost Your Building’s Curb Appeal
Up to 70% of visitors will make their buying decisions after they walk through the front door, which makes your building’s exterior appearance as important as what happens inside.
Power washing is a cost-effective way to restore your commercial building’s appearance, giving visitors a positive first impression and getting them through the front door.
2. Prevent Injuries and Illness
Trips and falls are the third largest cause of time-loss injuries in Canada. In high-traffic areas, it’s important to remove hazardous grime before someone – whether an employee or visitor – suffers a serious slip.
It’s also important to remove built-up pollutants like mold, pollen, and bird droppings. If left unattended, they can cause breathing troubles, allergies, and respiratory diseases for a building’s residents and guests.
3. Wash Away Built-Up Grime to Maintain Commercial Buildings
Grime not only looks unattractive, but can also cause structural damage.
Troublesome buildups include:
Bird droppings, which have a pH between 3 and 4.5 (on par with vinegar) and can eat away at wood, metal, stone, and tar-based materials.
De-icing salt, which should be cleaned up in the spring to prevent the acidic buildups and runoff from wearing away at concrete, metal, and wood.
Mold and mildew, which can become difficult to remove or permanently discolour the building if left uncleaned.
Regularly cleaning built-up dirt, mildew, and pollutants can help maintain your commercial property and protect it from premature wear-and-tear.
4. Power Wash to Guarantee a Complete Clean
High-pressure power washing is the most time- and cost-effective way to tackle a variety of outdoor surfaces, including:
Vinyl and aluminum siding
Stone-clad, concrete, brick, and cinderblock walls
Walkways and sidewalks (concrete or blacktop)
Parking garages (elevated or underground)
Dumpster areas (to disinfect and remove odours)
Facades and awnings
High-pressure washing easily cuts through the most stubborn dirt, making it easy to clean large areas in a flash.
