You sweep your interior floors, dust your shelves, and organize your inventory every day. You may even take pains to decorate your establishment’s interior for the holidays. You want to provide a clean and comfortable environment where people can shop and do business.
Unfortunately, all of these things are on the inside of your business. And like it or not, your business’ potential customers will be judging the outside of your business first.
That’s why taking steps to improve and upkeep your storefront is so important. Part of this is cleaning the sidewalks, and there’s no better way to clean your sidewalks than with a pressure wash.
Here are 3 of the top reasons why you should consider professional power washes for your storefront’s sidewalk.
1. Better Curb Appeal
A clean and tidy sidewalk simply looks better. Without debris, garbage, loose paint, leaves, and twigs, there’s a clear path for customers that goes right into your establishment.
This matters to people walking down the street. They can’t yet see what’s inside your store, so they’ll judge whether or not they want to go in based on the outside appearance. A store with chipped and peeling paint, rust stains, loose debris, and old spills gathering ants near the foundation is definitely not appealing. Potential customers will simply walk by.
2. Keep Stains Away
You might think of stains as only happening inside, but stains can happen anywhere — on your concrete sidewalk, outdoor floor mats, bricks, stone, or any other material. Generally, stains like these happen because of leaves, twigs, and other flora that are left too long. Stains can also be caused by spilled drinks, rust, ice melt salt, cigarettes, and more.
One of the only ways to ensure that stains don’t happen outside of your storefront is to have regular power washings. The process will push away all debris, and the power behind the water will even be able to lift stains that have started to form.
3. Prevent Weeds and Cracks
Sidewalks can crack any time, but they’re more likely to crack if you prevent weeds from sprouting and growing. If you allow this to happen, a number of other problems can ensue.
Namely, roots may grow so large that the sidewalk buckles, forming an obstacle that could cause someone to trip and hurt themselves. Not only would this be a terrible occurrence, but it could also lead to being sued. Furthermore, cracks caused by weeds are expensive to repair. It’s much more economical to avoid the weeds and subsequent cracks in the first place with a power wash.
