Commercial buildings are a significant investment and likely one of the largest parts of your company's capital budget. Given that fact, it only makes sense to take care of that investment like you would any equipment or other investments for your company. One thing many business owners overlook is the benefits of investing in a high-pressure pump system to pressure wash their buildings. Here's a look at some of the reasons why you should pressure wash your building a few times a year.
First Impressions Are Everything
Every business owner knows that you only get one opportunity at the first impression for a prospective new customer. For a brick-and-mortar business, that first impression starts when a customer pulls up to your business. If your building is unkempt, dirty, and poorly maintained, that's going to reflect poorly for prospective customers.
Pressure washing your building a couple of times a year helps to keep the building looking its best. The pressure washing process removes dirt and grime from the outside of the building with ease. As a result, the building will be clean and will show potential customers that your company cares about its building and the appearance it represents.
Neglect Can Lead To Damage
You might think that opting not to pressure wash your building is really no big deal aside from the fact that it leaves the building looking dirty. The truth is that this kind of neglect can be far worse than that.
When you don't keep your building clean, the mildew, dirt, grime, and other contaminants that can accumulate on the surface can cause deterioration to the outer structure of the building. Additionally, dirt and grime layered thick enough can actually hide structural problems that need to be addressed.
Pressure washing your building on a regular basis will eliminate the risk of structural deterioration due to the dirt. It may also uncover any hidden damage that you can then address right away. This will help to keep your building in good condition, reducing your emergency repair costs down the road.
Health Hazards Are A Serious Concern
Another important reason to consider periodic pressure washing is because of the inherent health hazards that can result from neglecting exterior cleaning. Oil, dirt, and other environmental hazards can accumulate on the exterior of your building. Left unaddressed, you may find that you even have some of these contaminants drawn into your air system, resulting in problems for your employees with allergies and respiratory issues. Keeping your exterior clean with routine pressure washing prevents this buildup and helps to keep your company's building a healthy and safe environment.

I'm Tom Doberstein. I have to make a confession: I am absolutely addicted to social media. And that has been an excellent thing for me because this addiction has helped me become an expert in social media marketing. I never meant to become an expert in this subject, but I just couldn't help but strike up conversations with some of my favorite brands. Some of the conversations I have had with my favorite brands through social media have been very entertaining and have made me develop an interest in the ways that businesses can use social media and other Internet tools to promote their businesses.
