Mildew, mold, dirt and grime are all things that can be removed easily by power washing. The force created by a power washer is so powerful that it dislodges deeply ingrained dirt in those impossible to reach areas. Many people think this is something they can “easily” accomplish by simply placing their thumb over the end of a garden hose to increase the pressure of the water being discharged. Although this does at times work, there is much more to power washing than what is originally perceived. If a consumer type pressure washer is used to save time and money, the potential to create damage is also much higher from it not being used properly. Therefore, business and homeowners should turn these jobs over to the power washing professionals.
A consumer bought pressure washer cannot run for hours at a time like a professional unit will be able to- which in turn causes the engine and pump to wear out much faster. Pressure washing is more important today than ever before as pollutants from industry, atmosphere and combustion have increased the need. Regular cleaning not only enhances the appearance of buildings and prevents damage, but it also helps in delaying the need for expensive and time consuming restoration.
Commercial buildings should always look their best. Customers often judge abilities and reputation based on the appearance of buildings. Not only will your customers be impressed by a clean look, but it will also maintain the value of the investment.
Pressure washing is the 1st and best method to ensure that the existing coating of paint will last longer. It is also the best way to prepare for refinishing or painting.
If you pressure wash annually, you will extend the life of your paint by at least 3 years, and often a paint job can last 10 years. It is much less expensive to pressure wash than to paint. Dirt, grime, mold and mildew can severely damage your buildings exterior and cause wood rot and premature fading. Regular pressure washing is the remedy.
