Get the benefits of pressure washing.

For many of us, warmer weather means pulling out our power washer and cleaning everything around the yard and house.  It’s instant results and instant gratification! Well this is also the time to think about what a high powered cleaning can do for your building.  It’s time to erase all the rainstorms, dust storms, and heavy wind that can impact a structure.

Pressure washing has several benefits other than enhancing curb appeal.  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.

Routine cleaning of hard surfaces can also prolong their lifespan.  Stone-like material such as brick will deteriorate over time if left unwashed.  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.

There is a difference between your power washer and a pressure washer.  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.
