Commercial Building Power Washing

Built-up dirt and grime can wreak havoc on commercial buildings, giving them a worn-down appearance and causing long-term structural damage if left unattended.

Power washing is an effective and safe way to give your property’s exteriors – including walls and paved walkways – a facelift, leaving them thoroughly cleaned and refreshing their appearance.

Check out these four benefits of power washing your commercial building:

1.     Boost Your Building’s Curb Appeal

Up to 70% of visitors will make their buying decisions after they walk through the front door, which makes your building’s exterior appearance as important as what happens inside.

Power washing is a cost-effective way to restore your commercial building’s appearance, giving visitors a positive first impression and getting them through the front door.

2.     Prevent Injuries and Illness

Trips and falls are the third largest cause of time-loss injuries in Canada. In high-traffic areas, it’s important to remove hazardous grime before someone – whether an employee or visitor – suffers a serious slip.

It’s also important to remove built-up pollutants like mold, pollen, and bird droppings. If left unattended, they can cause breathing troubles, allergies, and respiratory diseases for a building’s residents and guests.

3.     Wash Away Built-Up Grime to Maintain Commercial Buildings

Grime not only looks unattractive, but can also cause structural damage.

Troublesome buildups include:

  • Bird droppings, which have a pH between 3 and 4.5 (on par with vinegar) and can eat away at wood, metal, stone, and tar-based materials.
  • De-icing salt, which should be cleaned up in the spring to prevent the acidic buildups and runoff from wearing away at concrete, metal, and wood.
  • Mold and mildew, which can become difficult to remove or permanently discolour the building if left uncleaned.

Regularly cleaning built-up dirt, mildew, and pollutants can help maintain your commercial property and protect it from premature wear-and-tear.

4.     Power Wash to Guarantee a Complete Clean

High-pressure power washing is the most time- and cost-effective way to tackle a variety of outdoor surfaces, including:

  • Vinyl and aluminum siding
  • Stone-clad, concrete, brick, and cinderblock walls
  • Walkways and sidewalks (concrete or blacktop)
  • Parking garages (elevated or underground)
  • Dumpster areas (to disinfect and remove odours)
  • Facades and awnings

High-pressure washing easily cuts through the most stubborn dirt, making it easy to clean large areas in a flash.

Working with the Right Cleaning Professionals

Keep your building looking its best by sticking to a regular power washing schedule, removing dirt and grime before problems crop up.
