The “WOW” Effect of Pressure Cleaning Your Commercial Building

In the cleaning business, nothing says “WOW!” like the effects of pressure cleaning or pressure washing any surface. Most people don’t think about pressure washing because we think a little elbow grease is just as good. Whether your surface is concrete, wood, asphalt, brick or something else, pressure cleaning is always an option to help bring back the luster and shine of the original surface.

What Can You Pressure Wash?

The following surfaces on a commercial office building could benefit from pressure cleaning services:

  • Building Facades
  • Retaining Walls
  • Loading Docks
  • Trash Dumpster Pad Sites
  • Sidewalks & Curbs
  • Parking Lots
  • Parking Garages
  • Irrigation Rust Stains
  • Oil Stains & Efflorescence

Pressure cleaning can make your surfaces look brand new— it only requires cold water, applied with the correct wand nozzle and correct PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch). Hiring a professional with the right equipment is how you get the cleanest possible surface. The better the machine, the higher the PSI capability, which gets your commercial building or sidewalk cleaner than trying to rent a residential power washer to do the job. Pressure cleaning for commercial buildings requires commercial-grade machines, not your local hardware store brand.

Is a Hot Water Pressure Washing Machine Better?

Occasionally, when cold water pressure cleaning does not remove the stains in question, a hot water machine can be used. Hot water, combined with the correct nozzle or tip for the pressure cleaning wand, can remove stains caused by dirt, mold, rust efflorescence and more.

Sometimes stains will not completely come out. There are certain chemicals and cleaners that work well with commercial pressure washing machines that can help remove the stains better than just water pressure. However, there are some stains that cannot be cleaned out of a surface no matter what you do. It would take a professional to remove the stain as much as possible, but things like oil spills can create a shadow on concrete that can only be removed by replacing the concrete. As the precautions and skill set for this service is at the ultimate level of professionalism and skill, it is best to call a contractor to make sure that they have the tools and the knowledge necessary to complete the job.
