Whether you own or lease a commercial building for your business, you probably put a lot of time and money into maintenance (and if you don’t – you should!). You want your building, and the area surrounding it, to make a strong first impression on your customers. You’ve carefully considered your landscaping, adding attractive plants to your parking lot and entryway. And your signage is well-designed and clear. You pick up trash every day, of course, because you know your customers would be turned off by seeing a mess when they enter your building. But are you forgetting to schedule pressure washing? Pressure Washing: An Important Part of Commercial Building Maintenance
It can be tempting to cut corners and skip certain maintenance tasks. After all, your business has plenty of expenses, and are customers really going to notice whether or not you’ve pressure washed your building?
The truth is, even if they don’t consciously notice it, customers will pick up on the clean look of a properly washed building exterior. If your building is dingy and has mildew or climbing weeds, your customers might be passing you by no matter how great your signage and landscaping are. A sparkling clean building is the background for all of your other enticing details, and without it, you might really be losing out.
Regular pressure washing has benefits beyond aesthetics, too. Cleaning off algae, mildew, and other organic growths can prevent more costly cleaning and repairs down the line. Washing off climbing weeds before they really take hold can prevent them from damaging your walls. And a pressure washing crew can take care of your parking lot and entryway surface, too. You’d be amazing how good a parking lot can look when the gum, oil drops, and dirt are washed away.
The bottom line is this – make room in your budget to regularly pressure wash your commercial building. It won’t break the bank, and it will definitely increase traffic to your business. Contact 214 Pressure Washing today to learn more about our pressure washing services.
