If you’re not a commercial cleaning expert, like the team from Next Level Facility Solutions, you might be wondering about the difference between commercial pressure washing services and power washing. Although the two terms are often used interchangeably, they’re quite different. For example, power washing frequently uses heat-treated water and is meant as more of a surface treatment, whereas commercial pressure washing employs heated water, high pressure, and effective cleaning solutions for the best results.
We wanted to collect some more information about this efficient commercial cleaning method and why it’s ideal for businesses of every shape and size, so read on!
What Exactly is Commercial Pressure Washing?
As mentioned above, commercial pressure washing uses a specialized mixture of water and cleaning solvents designed to be expelled under extremely high pressure to clean things like building exteriors, concrete, and sidewalks. This special solution can be forced deep into the surface without causing any external damage. Additionally, commercial pressure washing is often preferred over power washing because it doesn’t cause any cosmetic issues that could develop into cracks or leaks down the road.
Many businesses invest in commercial pressure washing services at least once a month, or on a bi-monthly basis to keep their property looking great and well-maintained.
Benefits of Commercial Pressure Washing Services
As mentioned above, there are a host of benefits to commercial pressure washing services, including:
Arguably one of the leading benefits, commercial pressure washing on a regular basis will provide preventative maintenance that can reduce the need for repairs and prevent serious issues down the road. Mold, mildew, dirt, and other debris aren’t just unsightly, they can also eat away at your building’s exterior and cause rot and added wear and tear to your façade. Even the oldest of buildings will benefit from such services, leaving them looking almost as good as new.
Boosting Curb Appeal:
As mentioned above, commercial pressure washing services will remove all the dirt and grime built up over the ages, giving your facility a revitalized new look that will really wow staff and customers. But the benefits don’t stop there. With a clean, fresh new looking building, it will stand out among other areas and boost your business’s curb appeal. This means if you’re trying to attract more foot traffic to your business, it’s a great way to do so.
Cleaning Your Sidewalks:
The sidewalks in front of any building can sometimes be a nightmare to keep clean. Unfortunately, no amount of sweeping away debris or hosing them down will keep them looking pristine; the only way is by pressure washing. This is because not only does dirt collect upon them, but also things like gum, stains from food, drink, and garbage…the list goes on. But pressure washing can remove all of this, making your facility more inviting to both staff and customers.
Have you ever tried scrubbing away graffiti from the exterior of your building? It’s next to impossible. If you don’t want to paint over your exterior every time a teenager decides to leave their mark or someone chooses your business to practice their graffiti skills, pressure washing is the best alternative. Not only is graffiti unsightly, but it can also devalue your property, as well as the others around it, and should be removed ASAP!
Improving Safety & Hygiene:
One often overlooked benefit of commercial pressure washing services is that they can improve your building’s safety and hygiene. Because it removes mold, mildew, and other dirt that’s built up over time, it can also make your business a healthier place to work and visit. These types of things can exacerbate the allergies of staff and customers who are overly sensitive to such things, as well as make it easier for them to slip and fall; this is especially true for industrial facilities with concrete or stone flooring. But pressure washing offers an easy solution to keep your business healthy and safe for all.
Reducing Structural Maintenance Issues:
It’s not commonly known, but dirt grime and mildew built up on the interior and exterior of buildings also often hide structural problems that can turn into serious issues over time. Thankfully, by regularly pressure washing your facility, you’ll be able to catch any serious structural damage or problems before they have a chance to become a real issue. It will also make it easier for local building inspectors to give you a positive review, so regularly pressure washing your facility is a must!
You’ll be able to save time and money when it comes to building inspections because any issues will be out in the open. This means that building inspectors will need much less time to evaluate your property and if there are any issues, repairs can begin immediately so you can have your business back up and running as soon as possible.
