Benefits of Pressure Washing Your Commercial Property

A commercial property with a well-maintained exterior help attracts customers. Whether your property is a business building, a strip mall or an apartment community, a dirty building and parking area often turn people away. Commercial property pressure washing eliminates dirt and grime from buildings, awnings, sidewalks, and parking lots. The benefits of pressure washing your commercial property include a clean appearance as well as increased safety for your customers.

Buildings

You may think that with enough rain you can avoid pressure washing, but rain does not wash buildings. Rain can leave streaks of dirt and grime on all types of surfaces. A pressure washer has special settings for wood, stone, stucco, brick and other surfaces. It cleans off all of the streaked, caked dirt and extra layers, such as chewing gum. The pressure wash also removes algae and mold growing on the outside of buildings after heavy rains. Paint and varnish are not affected by pressure washing when you use the proper equipment. The washing will actually bring out the colors of the surface.

Wood, brick, and stone fences also benefit from a pressure wash by removing streaks and stains, along with mold and algae.

Many buildings have awnings that collect dirt in addition to rainwater and bird debris. A careful soft pressure wash removes stains from hard surface awnings.

Patios, Driveways, and Parking Lots

Many restaurants offer outside dining under a covered area. The pavement or deck must be kept as clean as the floor inside a restaurant. Pressure washing keeps patio areas clean and removes stains from spills.

A clean parking lot is very important for safety. People can slip and fall on an oily surface or stick and trip in a pavement area with spilled drinks and food. Sweet drinks and food left on the ground attracts insects and rodents. Drive through restaurants and buildings with take-out food should consistently have the parking area thoroughly cleaned with a strong pressure wash.

Commercial property pressure washing includes public sidewalks, entrances to buildings, and paved driveways along with parking lots around buildings. Driveways into commercial buildings, including apartment communities, often have oil, dirt, and debris from tires. The pavement of multi-level parking garages also needs to have dirt and oil removed for safety of both pedestrians and drivers.

Walkways and steps leading into a building need to be clean for both safety and appearances. This is often necessary after a rainstorm has left mud puddles and debris.

Instantly Improve Curb Appeal by Pressure Washing Your Pavers and Driveway

 

Looking to sell your home or commercial property? Curb Appeal is an important aspect of attracting potential buyers. The best way to keep your Brevard Florida outdoor space looking its best is with annual pressure washing. When you have a professional clean your pavers and driveway, you will instantly improve your curb appeal.

 

Here’s Why and How to Instantly Improve Curb Appeal

Understand the Why

Besides increasing visual appeal, pressure washing your pavers and driveway is an important part of building maintenance. Our Florida homes and commercial properties develop stains from mold, mildew, and moss growth. Additionally, debris from storms will build-up and can attract pests when not tended.

Be Thorough

Begin by removing objects sitting on top of the pavers including potted plants, furniture, and anything that covers the area you want to pressure wash. Next, you will want to remove any debris that has piled up in the cracks and corners of your yard. This includes weeds that are growing between the pavers. Make sure to clean the entire area, including harder to reach areas.

After clearing the driveway and pavers:

  •         Dampen the stone and cement
  •         Use a stiff brush to remove as much of the dirt and dust as possible
  •         Pressure wash the area

After everything dries, you will want to refill the cracks with fresh sand.

Use a Professional Service

A professional pressure wash service will take the time to survey your entire space and thoroughly clean the surfaces of all your pavers as well as your driveway. They will also evenly clean each section to remove streaks where dirt is embedded deeply.
