Pressure Washing

Power washing is one of the most effective ways to clean and protect your facility. Power washers take water and put it under extreme pressure, essentially turning normal water flow into an ultra-powerful hose capable of erasing stubborn stains, dirt, and grime. Not sure if a power washer could clean your exterior? Below are some common commercial jobs that are tackled using a pressure washer.

Remove Grease

If you have ever taken the time to inspect your parking lot, you’ll likely find a number of grease spots. These dark spots not only look unsightly, but they also can negatively affect your place of business. How so? Well, when people walk on your parking lot and step on a great spot, they will then carry that into your building on their shoes. Hiring a commercial cleaning company to power wash your parking lot can be the most effective way to remove this hazard.

Another area to power wash for grease stains is around the trash bins. Oftentimes, these areas can stain and collect spilled foods and liquids, which can pose a slip threat and dirty up your exterior. 

Reduce Weather Stains

Over time, the weather and air pollutants can take a toll on your building walls, seats, trash receptacles, and signage. Depending on the material of your facility, these effects can vary in degree and can typically be cleaned using a pressure washer.

Dislodge Gum and Other Gunk

Have you ever stopped to examine just how much gum there is on sidewalks and parking lots? It’s quite surprising. If you notice this outside your commercial property, you may be in need of professional power washing.

Eliminate Mold

Mold and mildew can not only erode certain substances, but it can also be a health hazard that can cause a number of respiratory illnesses. If you have noticed mold on the outside of your business, contact a commercial cleaning company to remove this unsafe substance.

Erase Graffiti

Nothing is more inviting than a storefront covered in amateur graffiti. We are, of course, being sarcastic. Allowing graffiti to cover your sidewalks and walls is not good for business. Fortunately, for a lot of buildings, this can be removed with the help of a commercial power washer.
