As the country shifts to reopening public spaces and private businesses, business owners are looking for ways to attract customers. One way to assure customers that you have taken cleanliness and sanitation procedure seriously, is by pressure washing the exterior as part of your cleaning program. In the current environment, everyone is looking for the best solutions to keep staff and customers healthy.
Pressure washing services will not only clean exterior surfaces, but will also disinfect those surfaces from germs, bacteria, and viruses such as Covid-19. Here are 3 more reasons you should consider a commercial pressure washing company before reopening your business during the pandemic.
1. For exterior cleanliness and hygiene
Similar to how the CDC recommends washing our hands for 20 seconds to remove disease-bearing pathogens, powerwashing does the same to building exteriors, sidewalks and driveways, patios and decks, outdoor tables and playground equipment, along with soft washing any outdoor upholstery and attached seating. Pressure washing will also create a more hygienic environment because you will also be removing mold, mildew, and fungi from these same surfaces.
The CDC highly recommends that business clean and sanitize high touch surfaces such as doorknobs, windows, handles, and railings. With one visit from Griff’s Services, all these exterior surfaces are cleaned with pressure washing.
2. To enhance curb appeal
How do you get the edge on your competition as all businesses look to reopen. By enhancing your properties curb appeal with powerwashing windows, doors, screens, and the exterior siding to release a fresh look that attracts customers. It is always recommended hiring an experienced pressure washing company that knows the correct nozzle pressures and cleaning solutions that are right for your facility. A do-it-yourself job can easily leave your business with broken windows, damaged screens, and siding that has loosened due to an overly high nozzle pressure.
3. To prevent costly damage
Finally, properties that have a buildup of biological material, mold, mildew over long periods of time will experience more damage to the business’s exterior materials – including the roofing system. Mold will eventually tear into your property’s paint job, then it continues to deteriorate siding, shingles, decks, and even structural wood. If mold remains on wood surfaces for too many years, eventually you will have to replace those wooden components, because even pressure washing can’t bring back deteriorated wood.
Always use a professional, pressure washing company like Griff’s Services to prevent common do-it-yourself problems such as water infiltration or missing mortar due to improper use of the wrong equipment. Griff’s Commercial Pressure Washing Services can clean all types of building exteriors including stucco, brick, wood, and even flat or pitched roofing systems. And, don’t forget your common areas such as patio areas, composite decks, concrete driveways, and parking lots that have been stained by food, grease, or gasoline.
