Tips from City Wide: Pressure Washing

Here are some helpful tips for safe pressure washing, to make your commercial exteriors shine as bright!

  • Don’t forget your loading docks and front entrance walk ways – pressure washing these surfaces to remove salt and sand build up from the winter will improve your curb appeal while avoiding salt from being tracked in the building.
  • Pressure washing can remove gum, stains, and more!
  • Pressure washing can be used to clear exterior paint or siding of dust and dirt before you re-paint on install new siding.
  • For most projects, such as paint or fences, check manufacturer PSI recommendations to ensure you don’t cause damage to your building’s exterior surfaces.
  • Caution: Never point a pressure washer at anyone. It’s much more powerful than a water gun or hose, and can cause lasting damage.
  • Wear appropriate clothing and shoes and do in the Spring or Fall when there are not extreme hot or cold temperatures.
  • Work in teams to sweep away extra water puddles and put up caution signs if any surfaces near your building are slippery when wet.
