The New England area is known for having some interesting weather all year long from harsh winter storms to scorching summer days. The salty air and the dramatic range in temperatures are just a few of the things that can impact the exterior surfaces of buildings including built-up dirt, grime, and debris.
Power washing your building’s exterior can be beneficial not only for aesthetic purposes but also in terms of decreasing the need for repairs, promoting a healthy environment, and increasing the property’s value.
Whether you own a commercial, industrial, or storefront business, professional power washing can be advantageous in several areas.
Here are four reasons why your business may want to consider this service this summer or fall before the bite of Mother Nature hits this winter.
#1 Increased Curb Appeal
Company owners take great pride in their business, office building, and business name. That should include the physical appearance of the exterior of the building.
Over the year, dirt, grime, and other contaminants can build up and make a building look unkempt and sloppy.
Seeing a clean and well-kept building every time one passes by is a way of increasing curb appeal and the visual appearance of the business. A professional power wash can erase all the grime, dirt, stains, and blemishes that can make your business look old and messy.
Maintaining your commercial or industrial building may seem like a never-ending task. Power washing your commercial building, factory, or school is one of the most transformative ways to give your business a refreshed look and increase the curb appeal associated with your brand name.
#2 Protects the Building From Damage
The growth of mold and mildew or the rotting of wood on the exterior of a structure can be very detrimental to a business. Contaminants like salt or other components in the environment can stick to the exterior of a building and begin to damage the surfaces. Over time, these environmental factors can weaken a business’s exterior and even cause damage to the siding.
A professional power washing can clean the mold and mildew off the exterior siding to protect the building from decay or rot. This service can be completed a couple of times a year to clean things up before the winter sets in or in the spring when it’s time to refresh the exterior of the structure.
#3 Promotes a Healthier Environment
As pollutants stick to the exterior of a structure the health of the people who frequently visit the building can come into question. By professionally washing away these pollutants and contaminants, a building becomes healthier, not just in its appearance, but in the air quality as well.
#4 Increasing Building’s Value
If the time comes to sell your business to expand or move to a new location, a clean facade is much more valuable than a dirty one. A professional cleaning can bring back the original sparkle of a property and increase its worth to potential buyers.
