Pressure washing is an outstanding way to improve the aesthetics of your property, which can go a long way toward improving its overall value. High-quality pressure washing services can be used at commercial properties to clean up brick or concrete, windows, driveways, parking lots and sidewalks.
While you can purchase or rent a pressure washer and perform this work yourself, generally it’s more economical at sizable properties to hire a professional and have them get the job done for you. Here are a few of the biggest reasons why you should hire a commercial pressure washing service in Vancouver, BC to come to your business and get it all cleaned up:
- Safer: Pressure washing can be a bit tricky if it’s a task you’ve never performed yourself before. First, you need to consider the kickback that occurs when you’re using the machine—the water comes out at very high pressure, and the machine will push back against you. Without the proper experience or training, you could injure yourself, whether due to losing control of the equipment or hitting yourself with a powerful stream of water.
- Avoid potential damage to your building: Pressure washers must be used in a very specific way if you are to avoid damage to your building, pavement or other materials and structures. They require a specific aim, angle and distance away from the substrate being cleaned. If you do not use them properly, you could strip away layers you didn’t mean to, or etch into the surface of materials that weren’t designed to be pressure washed. Professionals will understand the proper settings and techniques to use for all kinds of materials, and will not damage your property.
- Avoid potential damage to the surrounding environment: Amateurs risk not just damaging their building and the structures they’re attempting to clean, but also the surrounding environment. If you don’t know what you’re doing, pressure washing can become harmful to the surrounding environment, as you could inadvertently send pollutants and contaminants into nearby water sources. Professional companies are very careful about avoiding any sort of environmental impact with their work, using environmentally-friendly cleaning products and equipment to capture runoff.
- Savings: You might think performing pressure washing at your business yourself will save you money, but you might not be factoring in all the potential costs. First, you’d need to purchase or rent a pressure washer yourself, which can be expensive. Second, you’d still need to either pay one of your employees to use it, taking them away from their standard duties, or you’d need to use it yourself, which can take away a significant amount of time from your work week if you have a large property to clean. You’re better off going with a professional that already has all the equipment so you don’t have to invest any time into the job yourself.
