Whether you’re selling your home, trying to find new tenants for a commercial property, or simply want your building to stand out amongst the others in your street; the solution could be as simple as power washing. There is no doubt that over time, our properties become dirty. From the rain to the winds, snow to falling leaves – no matter what season it is there is always something that affects the exterior look of your home. And while many people simply accept this as part of life, with power washing you don’t need to.
Power washing uses hot water to clear grime and is useful for many things, including washing your exterior walls, removing old paint to make way for the new, cleaning your windows and your doors; along with cleaning the sidewalk and your driveway. There are many benefits of power washing, including the following:
Power Washing Boosts Your Curb Appeal
Whether it is for a commercial building or your home, power washing can enhance your curb appeal tenfold. For a commercial building, remember that the first point of call for your customers is the exterior of your office or shop. If you want to make a good impression, you need to ensure that first point of call is spotless – and power washing is one of the ways to do that. When it comes to your home, power washing will brighten up your property so that it stands out from your neighbors. This can assist if you are selling or leasing your property, or if you simply want your home to look nice.
Power Washing Increases The Value
As mentioned already, you might be considering power washing so that you can sell or lease your property. Whether it’s commercial or residential, having a property that looks great on the outside (and that is clean) will immediately increase the value. Mixing up a power wash with a touch-up of paint can actually increase your property’s value by up to 5%.
Power Washing is Good For Your Health
It might sound strange, but power washing your property is also good for your health. One of the biggest problems when living in an area where the weather is so unpredictable, is that you never know if it’s going to rain, hail, shine or snow. The unpredictable weather can often be the cause of the build-up of moisture in and around your property, leading to a build-up of pollutants such as mold. Mold can cause a lot of health issues, and by power washing your property you can wash the particles away from your family or staff members. Power washing also helps to get rid of any hazards that might be lying around the grounds of the property, including things like oil and chewing gum – which could cause someone to slip.
Power Washing is Good Preventative Maintenance
By keeping your property clean you can also ensure its longevity. Scheduling regular power washing will help prevent the build-up of mold, as mentioned, and other grime that could harm the foundations. If you prevent these, you could save yourself a lot of money down the track replacing rotting wood or chipped paint.
