Why is pressure washing so important?
Pressure washing is more important today than ever before as pollutants from industry, atmosphere and combustion have increased the need. Regular cleaning not only enhances the
appearance of buildings and prevents damage, but it also helps in delaying the need for expensive and time consuming restoration.
Commercial buildings should always look their best. Customers often judge abilities and reputation based on the appearance of the buildings. Not only will your customers be impressed by a clean look, but it will also maintain the value of the investment.
Is pressure washing good for my paint?
Pressure washing is the 1st and best method to insure that the existing coating of paint will last longer. It is also the best way to prepare for refinishing or painting.
If you pressure wash annually, you will extend the life of your paint by at least 3 years, and often a paint job can last 10 years. It is much less expensive to pressure wash than to paint.
Dirt, grime, mold and mildew can severely damage your buildings exterior and cause wood rot and premature fading. Regular pressure washing is the remedy.
Does pressure washing kill mold?
NO. One of the biggest misconceptions in the industry is that pressure washing will remove mold, mildew, and fungus. Although they may appear to be gone, mold spores will stay and
