When you own a commercial property, the condition of the exterior serves as the face of your business. Go look at the outside of your commercial property; what message does it send about your business? The elements and just the natural passage of time can lead to an accumulation of caked-on dirt and residue, leaving your business looking grimy, dingy, or downright dirty. What’s the solution? Pressure washing. Read on as your Fort Myers professionals at Under Pressure explain the benefits of having your commercial property pressure washed.
Don’t Do It Yourself
You’ve decided the exterior of your business property needs to be cleaned, now what do you do? Resist the urge to run out to the nearest home improvement store, purchase a piece of equipment you know next to nothing about, and start spraying. Pressure washing can be dangerous to you, your customers, your employees, and your property if you do not have the training to safely and adequately use a pressure washer. And the hazards are real, in fact the Centers for Disease Control even have a page dedicated to the injuries pressure washers can cause, including a few of these:

Why should you pressure wash your commercial property?
Curb appeal: You may have heard of this as a factor in residential real estate but it matters for commercial properties as well. Research shows that having a well-maintained, eye-pleasing exterior to your commercial property can make a big difference in the income it generates. In fact, one study conducted at the University of Washington found that commercial buildings with a well-maintained landscape and aesthetically pleasing exterior had rental rates approximately 7% higher than commercial properties that did not. Plus, the outside of your commercial property represents the first impression of your business. External appearances matter. There’s a reason that successful major companies always operate out of buildings that are shiny and clean. There’s a reason that dilapidated, dirty, graffiti-vandalized properties struggle to draw in clients. All potential consumers or business partners want to look at a business and feel safe and welcome.
Hygiene: In our hot and humid climate here in southwest Florida, it’s not uncommon to see moss, algae, sea salt, oil, mildew, mold, and even silt lines on buildings. The accumulation of any of these substances is both unsightly and unhygienic. You, your customers, and your employees could be exposed to lowered air quality and possible biological hazards if your commercial property isn’t regularly cleaned. Allergies, asthma, and those with lowered immune systems are particularly at risk for serious health side effects when dealing with unhygienic conditions. Pressure washing is like giving your business an extremely thorough shower
Prevention: You’ve invested your time and money into your commercial property. Maintaining its appearance could have a positive effect on your wallet aside from just generating more business. Between the elements, contaminants, and a variety of other factors, your business' exterior takes a beating every day. Without proper preventive maintenance and care, you will end up shelling out to pay for eventual repairs—repairs that will cost much more than having your property pressure washed by a professional. At Under Pressure, we can perform regular pressure washings of your commercial property, helping to maintain the structural integrity of your commercial property over the long haul. That means no surprises and less costly repairs for the investment that is your commercial property.
Efficiency: As we mentioned earlier, your commercial property represents an investment of both time and money. Having your building pressure washed professionally saves you and your staff money; they won’t have to work as hard or as often to clean the exterior of your building. That leaves more time for you and your employees to spend working on other tasks. Your sole focus can remain your business and finding ways to grow it and increase your revenue. Let the professional pressure washing services at Under Pressure Cleaning & Sealing Services open the door for a potentially brighter tomorrow.
Commercial Pressure Washing Results You Can’t Deny
Your commercial property, from the roof to the sidewalks to the parking lot needs to be professional pressure washed on a regular basis. This kind of preventative maintenance seems like it’s just for visual appeal, but the truth is mold, algae, dirt, and bird droppings are not just visually unappealing. . . they can wear a building down. Bird droppings are very acidic, so a buildup of them can actually weaken your building’s structure. Mold and algae can eat away at the structure of the building too. Cleaning them off regularly will prevent serious maintenance problems in the future.
The sidewalks in front of your building become filthy over time with gum accumulation, garbage stains, and dirt. Here in Southwest Florida mold, mildew or algae easily builds up on sidewalks due to our high humidity and the incredible amount of rain we get during the summers. When they do, they create a dangerously smooth surface. People can easily slip, fall, and injure themselves on a dirty sidewalk. Pressure washing removes this danger. Clean sidewalks invite customers in.
Pressure washing is also one of the most effective ways to remove graffiti. Nothing devalues your business and your building like graffiti. It makes your business look like it is neglected and it makes the area your business is in feel unsafe. Pressure washing is one of the few ways to remove it.
Finally, the dirt, grime, and mold on your building can unfortunately hide structural and maintenance problems until they become large enough to cause you to notice. Cleaning your building regularly is a good way to be sure that you catch any cosmetic issues before they become more serious (potentially leading to costly maintenance problems or worse, a failed inspection).
When you look at all the ways your commercial property can benefit from professional pressure washing, you can see that this service more than pays for itself. Don’t wait until the appearance of your building is driving away potential customers or tenants. Don’t live with the chance of the exterior becoming damaged, or harmful particles building up to cause a possible health risk. The pros at Under Pressure can help. We can have your commercial property looking fabulous and without any potential damage from the cleaning process itself. That is because we use light sprayers to apply a gentle cleanser, and then rinse the entire exterior of your building. Using high pressure could peel paint or otherwise compromise the exterior. This is also yet another reason why you only should hire professionals to pressure wash your business or commercial property in southwest Florida.
