Aside from the cold stretches we endured recently, Calgarians have enjoyed a relatively mild winter this year. While warmer weather can still feel ages away, the official start of Spring is just around the corner. As the snow around your office building finally starts to melt away for good, you may be considering a well-deserved exterior cleaning for your building. Before hiring a cleaning crew to do just that, what are some things you should be aware of?
Pressure washing involves the use of heavily pressurized water to blast salt, dirt, and grime off of surfaces and is typically highly effective. You may have heard the term power washing used instead; the only difference between power washing and pressure washing is that power washing makes use of very hot water. In many cases, the added heat helps kill bacteria and dissolves away dirt and grime more easily. Ultimately, the type of surface that is to be sprayed will determine what kind of cleaning method works best. Pressure washing is generally recommended for cleaning building exteriors, but not in all cases. For example, pressure washing can remove coats of paint and cause damage to wooden surfaces that may already be compromised. Having a professional cleaning crew assess your particular situation is the best way to make sure that you’ll get the results you’re looking for. In addition, power or pressure washing can be a hazardous task that’s often best left for the pros to handle safely.
Spring is the Best Time for Pressure Washing
Picking the right time to have your building’s exterior cleaned can make a world of difference. Certainly, pressure washing is not something to be done right before winter, unless you want to live in the centre of a frozen puddle! Spring brings the promise of warmer weather and the melting of snow, which makes it the perfect time to get a much needed wash in. Snow can dissolve a lot of dirt and grime which can get left behind on your building even as the snow melts away. Pressure washing is the best way to get rid of that buildup and leave your building looking great all summer long!
