Pressure washing is a fast and efficient way to remove organic growth from the exterior of commercial properties. Mold, moss, and algae are not just unpleasant to look at, they can cause serious problems for a property owner. If you are dealing with excessive organic growth, here are some benefits that pressure washing can provide:
- Protects the Health of Visitors and Employees
Mold and mildew are general terms for types of fungi. They can cause serious health problems indoors and outside as well. The CDC states that people who are sensitive to mold may experience mild symptoms that range from stuffy noses to irritated throats. More severe respiratory symptoms can include infections in people with chronic lung disease. Pressure washing your commercial property can help to eliminate allergens and other potential irritants.
- Protects Your Roofing Investment
Algae lichen and moss can damage your roofing materials, which is a great reason to get these forms of organic growth off your roof. You can use soft pressure washing to remove algae and moss without causing damage. The right chemical cleaning product will also be necessary. A professional pressure washer will know the right tools and cleaners to use.
- Prevents Slip and Fall Accidents
Concrete walkways, driveways, and sidewalks can all become slippery fall hazards due to the growth of mold and algae. Keep in mind that when concrete coated with algae and mold is wet it becomes even more likely to cause slip and fall accidents. For senior citizens, the potential for severe injury will be even greater. A pressure washer with a flat surface cleaner can solve this problem quickly and thoroughly.
