5 BENEFITS TO PRESSURE WASHING YOUR BUILDING
Ensuring your building maintains a welcoming and professional look can be difficult. You have a variety of factors working against you, such as pollution, birds, mildew, graffiti, gum, grease and dirt that can make your roof, windows, walls and sidewalks filthy.
Get rid of these ugly marks, stains and streaks with customized pressure washing. Clean and Polish Building Solutions uses different water pressures, water temperatures and biodegradable detergents as needed for each individual project to safely rid your building free of dirt and stains. In addition removing the dirt and grime, pressure washing your commercial property can actually carry an array of benefits.
1. Improve your building's curb appeal
Whether or not your building's owner is looking to sell or lease out space, it never hurts to boost the curb appeal. Having your building regularly pressure washed by professional cleaners can actually help improve the value of the structure. It will make the building look newer and more appealing.
A clean building also benefits the businesses inside. Clients and employees will enjoy the spotless facilities and a building they can be proud to go to.
2. Prevent repairs
Not only do bird droppings, mold growth, algae and dirt buildup look unattractive, but they can actually wear away at a building, causing rot or further damage. Certain building materials, such as brick, may deteriorate over time if it's left unwashed. Regular pressure washing of the walls, windows, roof and gutters can help cut down these risks and end up saving the business money in maintenance costs in the long run.
For example, bird droppings are extremely acidic and can weaken the roof or gutter systems of a commercial property leading to a collapsed roof or break. Simply cleaning the droppings and preventing further buildup with regular cleanings can help reduce the risk of structural damage.
3. Clean associated spaces
It's not just the walls, windows and roof that benefit from professional pressure washing, other spaces and property associated with the building can be pressure washed as well. The sidewalks and walkways in front of a building are some of the most popular spaces to be pressure washed. This process can remove unsightly gum and garbage stains caused by regular public use.
Parking garages, loading docks, dumpster areas, parking lots, facades and awnings can also all benefit from pressure washing. They'll improve the employee and client experience at the building and make the building itself look better.

4. Protect against injury and promote health
Pressure washing can help make the work environment better for employees in the building by eliminating potentially harmful substances. Pollen, pollutants, dust, dirt, mildew, algae and bird droppings can all lead to negative health consequences, such as trouble breathing, allergies or diseases. Pressure washing gets rid of these substances and, when done regularly, helps prevent them from developing.
Professional cleaning can also help prevent slips and falls – some of the most common workplace accidents. Pressure washing sidewalks, walkways, parking garages and other surfaces can help get rid of grease, mold and other substances that can cause an employee to slip and hurt themselves on the building's property.
5. Get rid of graffiti
While it might not hold the same structural or safety risks as mold or bird droppings, graffiti and spray paint can be among the most offensive and unsightly stains on a building. Pressure washing can help remove the paint and give your building a respectable and professional look.
