Will Pressure Washing Make My Facility Stand Out?

What are the key indicators for something looking old and dilapidated? Lack of updating, lack of cleaning, and lack of care. When you let anything sit outside for several years, you are allowing that thing to gather whatever the elements throw at it. Various forms of debris and dust will find its way to it. Fortunately, pressure washing can wash away dirt, debris, and stains to take years off a surface. There are countless videos of how something that hadn’t been cleaned for years suddenly looks brand new again after a thorough pressure washing.

We know what wonders pressure washing can do for anything with a solid surface. Why not bring that rejuvenation to your building? Erase all the rainstorms, dust storms, and heavy wind that have impacted your building. Not to mention, there might be some markings or graffiti on your building that will need to removed. By pressure washing it, you erase all the harsh weather and damage done over the years. Passersby will notice the major change made to your building and take note of how it looks entirely new.

What is the Difference Between Pressure Washing and Power Washing?

You will typically see these two terms being used interchangeably. However, they are similar, but not the same task. They both make use of high-pressure water dispersion, the key difference between the two is the usage of heat. Power washing uses a jet wash that is heated. Essentially, high pressure, high-temperature water is used. This makes surface cleaning much more in-depth. How? You notice when you are washing dishes, that grime comes out a lot easier, the hotter the water is? It’s essentially the same idea, just used in the context of cleaning hard and differently textured surfaces. We can help you determine which service is best for your facility’s needs.

Allow Your Building to Better Promote Good Health

Your building is the protective barrier between you and mother nature. Over the years, this protective barrier will wane, as harmful substances gradually penetrate through the exterior. Mold, mildew, algae, and pollen are able to come from the outside and make their way to the inside. Pressure washing can eradicate all of this and more. Allow everyone in your building to breathe better, and know you are keeping their health in mind. Furthermore, pressure washing is able to help prevent work-related accidents.  Pressure washing can get rid of grease and mold on any surface. Ridding of these substances through pressure washing can reduce slips and falls that could potentially occur in your building.

Have Your Building Prepared For Painting

Pressure washing is an excellent way to get rid of anything on the surface of your building that would interfere with a new paint job. Cobwebs, old paint chips, and other substances will need to be removed in order to have as even a coat as possible. Dirt, grease, and grime will have to be removed as well. Pressure washing not only can get rid of these substances but also clean out any crevice on the exterior. Pressure washing also allows the paint to potentially better adhere to an undercoat.

 Prevent The Need For Future Repairs 

Stone-like material such as brick will deteriorate over time if left unwashed. Routine cleaning of your hard surfaces can prolong their lifespan. “How so?” you may ask. Much like polishing metal, pressure washing will remove layers from the surface, along with the dirt. In doing this, you’ll be bringing the stronger and less worn layers to the surface, you make the surface less prone to cracking. This is why excessive pressure washing is not recommended, and why you should only consider pressure washing the same surface only once or twice a year. This is to prevent pitting and surface degradation from excess washing. Also, this is another great reason to use an experienced professional, to ensure you don’t strip away elements of the structure itself.
