Pressure cleaning for both homes and businesses is not a luxury. It is a necessity; one that enhances property curb appeal, keeps walking surfaces safe, and protects against the spread of dangerous substances like mold, mildew, and sootWhile roofs and walkways are among the most common places in need of pressure cleaning, there are other areas (both residential and commercial) that also benefit from it for a variety of reasons. Listed below are the top ten most popular places to have pressure cleaned by a professional company.
For homes, cleaning windows by hand with a spray bottle is a tedious and time-consuming process. For businesses, it can be next to impossible. Pressure cleaning is an efficient solution to both property types. Professional pressure washers have a reservoir for cleaning solutions to be sprayed before, or with, the concentrated stream of water, making for a highly effective wash and a spotless finish.
2. Exterior Walls: Siding, Brick, and Stone
It’s very easy for dust, dirt, and grime to accumulate in the nooks and crannies of a building over time. This is especially true for surfaces exposed to the elements, such as siding, brick, and cobblestone. Having a professional company pressure wash these areas with the proper PSI and the best-suited cleaning solutions will restore the look and increase the longevity of the building material.
3. Driveways and Parking Lots
It’s an unfortunate fact: cars get dirty, and when they do, so do the locations in which they’re parked. Oil and grease from roads have a nasty habit of collecting on car tires and trailing their way onto clean pavement—allowing for the buildup of a solid layer of grime over time. With the help of a professional pressure cleaning service, however, any driveway and parking lot can look as new as the day they were paved.
4. Walkways and Front Entrance Stairs
Any sort of entrance to a home or commercial building should always be kept as clean as possible to leave a good impression on visitors and keep curb appeal intact. This can be difficult to do since shoes can track dirt and grime just as easily as car tires, affecting paths like walkways and stairs that have the most foot traffic. However, a thorough, routine pressure wash can keep every brick spotless and help to prevent slip-and-falls.
5. Garage Doors
The garage door is just as likely to get dirty as the driveway. Dust, dirt, and oil particles can collect over time to create a coat that may be too tough to scrub away by hand. Pressure washing is not only an easier method of cleaning garage doors, but it also yields better results.
6. Fascia Boards and Soffits
The fascia board and the soffit (the long board that runs along the lower edge of a roof and its underside, respectively) are parts of the roof that tend to be forgotten during cleaning. Ample amounts of dust, spider webs, and beehives or wasp nests can form if these areas are not properly maintained. If they do, they can be knocked out with a professional cleaning from a power washing company, after taking necessary precautions of course.
Almost every residence, residential community, and corporate park has a fence of some kind. Unfortunately, many people falsely believe that fading on a wood or stone fence means it’s time for a new coat of paint, or that rust on a metal fence means it’s time for a replacement. This could not be further from the truth. Whether it’s metal, wood, stone, or vinyl, the best method for keeping a fence clean is with a regular pressure washing service, which will wash away coatings of dirt and rust stains, restoring the original beauty to any fence.
8. Patios, Balconies, and Decks
The purpose of patios, balconies, and decks are to offer a sense of escape to the people enjoying the outdoors or the pool. Although, this could be challenging to achieve if the wood, tiles, or concrete is covered in dangerously slippery grime. Routine cleaning performed by a licensed and insured pressure washing company can help keep the floor safe and sparkling like new, allowing for stress-free and slip-free relaxation.
Chlorine may keep a pool’s water sanitized, but it certainly doesn’t keep the rest of the pool clean. Dirt, leaves, twigs, and other debris that gets blown or brought into a pool gathers at its bottom over time, and can cause permanent staining if left untreated. Draining the pool and having a professional give it a solid pressure wash will leave it so clean that even the refilled water will look clearer.
10. Trashcans and Recycling Bins
Trashcans and recycling bins are two pieces of property that no one thinks to clean since, well, the things that go into them are not very hygienic in the first place. It’s important to remember though that in-depth cleaning can wash away unpleasant smells as well as stains. So occasionally treating receptacles to a professional pressure washing will greatly reduce the odors that linger long after the trash has been picked up.
These are just some of the many areas of both residential and commercial properties that benefit from an occasional or routine pressure washing service.
