Commercial Power Washing Benefits

Power-washing your home or business is like giving it a facelift. It can take years off the appearance of its last coat of freshly applied paint. It can increase both its curb appeal and its resale value in record time. Power-washing can also be a highly effective tool for regular structural maintenance, as it helps prevent dry rot, premature decay, and extends the life of siding. Perhaps even more importantly, it removes mold, mildew, and bacteria that can be potentially hazardous to the health of your family or customers.

While power washers are available for rent, in the hands of an inexperienced user, they can be potentially dangerous to both humans and homes. These powerful machines deliver a range of 2,700 to 4000 pounds per square inch of water pressure, compared to the 40 psi of an average garden hose. Depending on the type of nozzle used, they can strip paint off a house, which is why professional painters use them to reduce the number of hours it takes to scrape off old paint before priming.

It’s a good idea to hire an experienced professional with the right training and safety equipment to prevent injuries. In 2014 alone, approximately 6000 people reported being injured while using power washers. Eye injuries have occurred from foreign objects such as pebbles flying at high speeds. Penetration of the skin can result in deep tissue damage, infection, and even amputation.

Shock and waterproof safety glasses, hearing protection, and adequate ventilation are as vital as a thorough understanding of the operating instructions. For multiple-storied buildings that require working on a ladder, a safety harness must also be utilized. Used safely and properly, power-washing can add years of life, and beauty, to your building.
