Exterior Cleaning and Sanitizing Is Especially Important Right Now

5 Aug2020

Over the past several months, since the Covid-19 pandemic dug its heels in our world after mid-March 2020, the major concern for everyone was cleaning interior spaces. Now, without a definite end in sight, the cleaning industry has turned their sights outward to exterior spaces – high traffic areas, outdoor spaces, playgrounds, patios, building facades, windows, and sidewalks.

The CDC (Center for Disease Control) has determined that the Covid-19 virus, actually any virus for that matter, can remain live for several hours on both interior and exterior surfaces. Viruses can survive on different types of surfaces – metal, plastic, copper, and glass— for up to 96 hours.

Not only can viruses and germs be passed from touching things like shopping carts, but it can also even travel with your shoes. So, it stands to reason that pressure cleaning exterior surfaces such as sidewalks, building facades, pad sites, parking garage floors, and windows are in order.

Why Pressure Washing the Exterior of Buildings is Important

The “new normal” demands a higher level of clean everywhere. Pressure cleaning and window cleaning can help prevent the spread of the disease.  On-going, preventative, maintenance and pressure cleaning are excellent ways to protect people from spreading viruses and helps keep businesses and society running smoothly.

Pressure cleaning, especially, has become a service that is a matter of public health. Adding disinfectants in the water solutions for pressure cleaning machines has been key for keeping exterior surfaces clean. Most people feel more at ease when they know that a property that they frequent has been cleaned on a regular basis. It is essential that businesses take that extra step to make the public feel comfortable. The main message to the public is that “this business really cares about my health and well-being.” That speaks volumes about the company or building caring for its customers’ health.

Have Questions About Keeping Your Business Clean?

When looking for pressure washing, make sure to look up businesses that have been doing exterior cleaning for years and not companies who just recently pivoted their business model. This will ensure you get an effective service at your property and you can trust that everything was done correctly. Plus, this helps to avoid any property damage that can occur when someone uses the pressure washer with little experience.
