Pressure Washing – Maintenance Plans
Cleaning and Pressure Washing
Keeping your property looking it’s very best can sometimes come down to simply keeping it clean. Pressure washing the exterior can wash away dirt and other harmful elements and bring back curb appeal to clients. But did you know that keeping the surface of your building clean can help in different ways?
What does cleaning the exterior of a building help you?
- Curb Appeal
- Maintain Warranty from Paint Manufacturer
- Keeping Surface Clean Reduces Foreign Growth on Structure
Let’s retake a moment to talk about curb appeal. Perception is everything from potential clients to homeowners who want to ensure their home looks clean and fresh. While cleaning the surface can help us see the natural or painted surface underneath, the other reasons to keep the exterior clean can be even more important.
Depending on the company who provides your painting services or even the product applied to protect the surface, your warranty may demand you keep your exterior clean. For this example, let’s use paint for the surface of the building. While your paint may claim to last you seven years for a warranty, it may also require you to keep the surface clean. Why would this matter? Well, let’s presume that the paint does everything it says it can do, but if there is mildew, mold, or other foreign objects on top of the paint, it can start to lose its ability to do its real job, protecting the exterior from water intrusion. If growth is not removed, the paint understandably cannot do what it was engineered to do.
What other surfaces need to be cleaned routinely?
- Brick Walls
- Stone or Stone Facades
Many other surfaces should be addressed on a routine basis to keep them looking their best and allow them to have the most extended life possible. Sidewalks, for example, can expose safety issues if not kept clean. Spills and other foreign object on the sidewalk or parking lot surface can increase liability to the owner and incur future increases in insurance premiums. Pavers are another surface that, if not kept clean, can be unsightly and create unsafe conditions for patrons. Having this work completed automatically on a maintenance plan often provides peace of mind for property owners and managers that the property is being maintained and that trained team members are keeping an eye open for other potential issues. We communicate with property management and project managers about any potential problems we see so they can be addressed quickly if needed.
Awnings can be made of different materials such as metal, wood, and even fabric. All of these need to be cleaned routinely as accent colors are often lighter than the building colors. These awnings stick out on average more than just the buildings themselves when dirty.
