It is amazing how much dirt, grime and algae can build up on walls and other exterior surfaces without us noticing. What is more amazing is the difference a single clean can make!
Pressure washing is a fantastic method of removing obvious marks such as graffiti and chewing gum but it is also brilliant at cleansing away all manner of dirt and growth. It is likely that your property is suitable for pressure washing, but there are important things to know first.
Pressure washing is a quick and effective method of exterior cleaning. It is simply water under very high pressure sprayed at a surface to remove:
- Loose paint
- Chewing gum
There is no need to use chemicals or anything other than the water itself, which makes pressure washing a good choice for the environmentally conscious.
Pressure washing walls
It can be surprising how grimy walls become without you noticing. Weather, smoke, pollution and algae can all leave their marks and the grime builds up slowly.
Pressure washing walls is a fantastic way of quickly and effectively cleansing exterior walls. Customers are often amazed by the transformation.
The benefits of pressure washing walls
Much like when you clean your car, there are many benefits to cleaning exterior walls. Not only do you boost kerb appeal and potentially increase your property’s value, you also avoid the long term damage dirt, grime and algae can cause.
Pressure washing walls can also stave off expensive repainting and even prolong the life of the walls themselves.
Aside from tackling walls, there are plenty of exterior cleaning tasks for which pressure washing is perfect.
Pressure washing driveways, patios and decking is usually a great way to make an arduous task much easier. This cleaning method not only makes your exterior surfaces look neater but actually improves safety.
As mould and algae build up, driveways, patios and especially decking can become extremely slippery. It can get to the point where you avoid treading on these surfaces because they are so dangerous. One option is to treat these surfaces with harsh chemicals but pressure washing simply uses water to achieve the same, if not better results.
Much like pressure washing walls, exterior cleaning helps boost kerb appeal and has a positive impact on house value. The real plus point however, is that you improve safety and can avoid nasty accidents on your property.
