4 Reasons to Pressure Wash Your Buildings

Pressure washing is an often-overlook component of maintaining a highly-valued property. Not only does it keep your buildings looking beautiful, but even more importantly, it keeps them safe and clean. Rather than using harsh chemicals or scrubbing areas by hand, pressure washing is a more natural and effective approach that takes less time.


We rarely associate safety with cleaning up the exterior of a building, but in fact, dingy surfaces can be a safety hazard. When mold, dirt, mud, or even dust build up on a surface, it can cause residents allergies to act up – or worse. Mildew, moss, and algae can create an unsanitary environment that leaves residents feeling uncomfortable in their own home or apartment building.

Property Value

Sometimes cleaning up a property right before trying to sell it is too late – What you thought were temporary stains (quick cleaning projects) are actually permanent stains that you can’t do much about. At this point, it becomes a much more expensive project of replacing the stained areas. Anything from rain to smoke, wind, or air pollution can create a more dismal external surface on your building.

Repair Preparation

Even if you are looking to do some bigger repair jobs on the exterior of your building, pressure washing is still not something to skip. It prepares the surfaces for painting, repairs, or other remodeling work.

Curb Appeal

Many people are delighted and surprised to see the difference after their building is pressure washed. Even subtle discoloration, when removed entirely, reveals an external surface that looks brand new. It’s one of the simplest and most efficient ways to get more eyes on your building. Passersby may wonder, “What’s different about that building?” as it catches their eye for the first time.

Whether you’re concerned about the cleanliness of your property, or you’re simply bothered by stains that can be seen from far away, pressure washing is an easy solution. Decks, concrete walkways, stucco, some types of siding, brick, and other materials can be pressure washed without damaging the surface.
