Taking Control of Property Maintenance: The Role of Pressure Washing
Property damage may be avoided if residential and commercial properties are kept to proper quality and appearance standards. That’s why keeping buildings’ exterior and common areas spotless is a critical property management task. Although intensive, effective pressure washing is the perfect solution to maintain the desired appearance of your property.

5 Benefits of hiring professional pressure washing services

Properties that boast well-kept facilities are more appealing and attractive to visitors. The aesthetics of facilities directly reflect the standards of those who occupy them. Pressure washing services are necessary for maintaining the visual aspect of a property because of the many advantages that accompany it.

1. Enhanced curb appeal and property value

Dirt, grime, and mildew stain can make a property look dated and uninviting. The whole point of pressure washing is to eliminate these unsightly substances for a renewed look and feel. Improved hygiene, outer desirability, and access to public areas or amenities make it easier for potential residents or customers to envision themselves there.

2. Longer life span of the property

Routine pressure washing can help to extend the lifespan of your property by removing dirt, debris, and other pollutants that can damage your property over time. This can also help to prevent the growth of mold and mildew, which can cause structural damage. 

3. Lower maintenance costs

Some property managers may believe that a cost-efficient solution to property maintenance is handling issues as they arise. However, with regularly scheduled maintenance you can actually save money with preventative services, keeping your property clean and safe all year round!

4. Safe clean-up of high walls and rising structures

Multi-story buildings and high walls present difficulty for traditional cleaning methods. Using water jets from a high-capacity pressure washer effectively tackles the task of maintaining cleanliness and safety of your property from the uppermost crevices and eaves.

5. Protection from potential slip-and-fall accidents

Some common slip-and-fall situations on properties are due to wet, slippery surfaces and oil, grease, or paint residues found on stairs, rails, and entryways. Clearing these compounds from flat surfaces with powerful streams of manufacturer-specified cleaning solutions reduces the risk of injury.

Areas that can benefit from pressure washing

Although your community and property are not inherently dirty, they often become so due to the accumulation of airborne pollutants. The pollen, dust particles, and debris from the air settle on exterior surfaces that are hard to remove. Some common areas that require pressure washing include:

  • Building exteriors; walls, roof, gutters, and windows
  • Driveways and sidewalks
  • Decks and patios
  • Outdoor furniture
  • Swimming pool areas
  • Parking lots
  • Playgrounds and recreation areas
  • Garage floors
  • Fences

Signs that your community needs pressure washing

Lack of optimal upkeep of a property can lead to a gradual decline in the appearance of untended sites or spaces. Note that these signs do not solely represent the need for deep cleaning or disinfection, as they can also mean other things. They might require repair, rehabilitation, and replacement, but in most cases, high-pressure rinsing is effective for surface restoration:

  • Algae, slippery conditions
  • Oil spills, car oil leaks
  • Rusting, corrosion
  • Sediment, organic growth, debris buildup
  • Bird droppings, pet waste
  • Graffiti
  • Tire marks
  • Tree sap, moss
  • Faded and dull paint color
  • Garbage, mold, and mildew stains
