Power Washing – Is It Time to Clean Your Building?
When is it time to power wash your building? Here are some questions that will prompt you…”
Is your building looking fresh clean and attractive?
Over time, a building’s exterior develops a coating of dirt, dust and pollutants. If this builds up over a long period, the building can begin to look quite dingy.
Unfortunately, tenants and customers tend to judge (and quite harshly). So dim grungy buildings create a negative impression.
Is the nice white marble Starting to turn grey? Is that crisp, red Brick now a dull maroon? These Are indicators that it’s Time for Power washing.
Are there areas where dirt, dust, or pollutants have built up?
Mold and mildew can collect on buildings and damage or discolor the exterior.
Power washing is both the remedy and a good preventative measure for potential repairs or discoloration.
In addition, mold and mildew may present health problems for building tenants and their customers.
Power washing strips away these potential irritants and improve the health and safety aspects of your property.
Power washing checklist
If you decided to tackle your power washing project here are some suggested steps for taking the project off:
First do a thorough inspection of the property and determine which areas need the most attention in which areas are more sensitive to power washing
We recommend the top to bottom inspection that covers these areas:
- Exterior walls
- Gables and overhangs
- Decorative sheathing
- Decorative concrete
Power Washing – The Areas Than Can Tolerate the Stream
Determine if there are some sensitive areas that could be damaged from the high speed stream of water, such as generated by the power washing, cover them with plastic.
These areas include decorative Roofing, decorative Fypon or sunburst, or smaller decorative items on the exterior.
Although these exterior areas are already subject to exterior weather, power washing creates a very powerful stream of water that these elements are not designed for.
Also contact a professional maintenance company who has the experience and equipment to do the job safely, effectively, and thoroughly.
A top-notch service will save you time by conducting the inspection and making recommendations about what needs attention and what needs protection.
