Filthy Sidewalk? We Have The Solution!
Pressure washing has become a very popular washing method among professionals and non-professionals alike. It can be used in both residential and commercial buildings to clean driveways, sidewalks, floors, walls, roofs, parking lots and any other concrete, wood or stone surface. If you are not yet convinced about pressure washing, here are some reasons why sidewalks, in particular, should be pressure washed.
1. Best Results
If you want your sidewalk to look as good as when it was first installed, pressure washing is the best technique. A pressure washer is designed to spray water at a high pressure, more than ten times the pressure of a garden hose, thereby enabling it to be more effective.
Any dirt that has accumulated over time will not stand a chance against a pressure washer. Even stubborn stains that have resisted conventional cleaning methods will be easily eliminated.
2. Removes Biological Stains
Other than dirt and stains, sidewalks can also be attacked by moss, lichens and other small plants. These plants are not only an eye sore, but they can also make the sidewalk slippery and, therefore, hazardous to pedestrians.
Trying to remove such things with a garden hose and a brush can be a tall order. A pressure washer, on the other hand, will get rid of those plants easily and quickly. It will dig them up from their roots so that no trace of them is left behind.
3. Long-Lasting Results
As already mentioned, pressure washing is very thorough and effective. Once you get that sidewalk sparkling clean, you will not have to worry about it for a long time. With conventional cleaning methods, you might have to keep cleaning the sidewalk on a regular basis, but not with pressure washing.
Pressure washing also offers a more permanent solution for the moss and lichens, especially if you use it in conjunction with safe chemicals.
4. Quicker Results
Depending on the size of the sidewalk, it may take you an entire day to be finished, when using conventional cleaning techniques. With a pressure washer, however, you can finish that task in just a few hours or minutes. Commercial enterprises should especially utilize pressure washing, since they may have many sidewalks to clean.
