When you drive up to your workplace in the morning, what do you see? Do you see a pristine building that reflects the pride of your company and the pride you feel to be a part of it? Or do you see bird droppings splattered on the windows, gum littering the sidewalk, and slimy mildew buildup on the walls?
You get dressed for work in the morning with a mind to present yourself in a professional manner. In the same way, the exterior of your building determines how your company presents itself to the community. If you notice the grime buildup when you walk into work, surely your customers do too!
Your building is the first thing your customers see when they arrive! This means that their assumptions about the quality of your company and the value you provide are based on their impression of the exterior. Ensuring a positive first impression is simple: exterior cleaning and maintenance. A service like pressure washing can improve the appearance of your business and showcase the level of quality and service you provide.
Well-executed pressure washing not only has aesthetic benefits, but also financial and practical. Did you know that, especially in the humidity for which Florida is famous, algae can start to grow on your room and walls? Algae is a plant, therefore it performs photosynthesis. In other words, it is constantly absorbing sunlight to grow. As it grows, it absorbs more and more sunlight. When it absorbs sunlight, your roof heats up more than it would otherwise, and so does your building. Your AC system detects this and starts to work harder to keep your building cool. In short: your electric bill climbs as the algae accumulates.
The buildup of organisms like algae and mold also accelerates the deterioration of your property. The materials covered in grime are eaten away at and broken down over time. You can increase the lifespan of your exterior materials by at least 5 years by investing in regular pressure washing and maintenance.
But how do you choose a pressure washing company?
Pressure Washing is a highly specialized service. It is a method of exterior cleaning that utilizes a powerful water stream to knock the slime and stains off your property. If the water stream is too forceful, it can damage your property. If the stream isn’t forceful enough, the process is ineffective.
When performed incorrectly, pressure washing can strip the paint from your building, wear down your exterior surfaces, or damage your building materials. When executed correctly, by experienced experts, it strips the grime and mold and nastiness from your surfaces, while increasing the longevity and appearance of your building and property.
