Why It Is Important To Clean Your Commercial Business On A Regular Schedule

Wednesday, January 4, 2023

Your commercial property exterior is the first thing your customers notice as they approach your business. Not only is a clean commercial exterior a great way to make a positive first impression, it is also important for maintaining the property’s safety and structural integrity. Over time, your commercial property is repeatedly exposed to harsh elements. It is under constant barrage of air contaminants, pelted with rain, and baked in the sun. While it doesn’t happen immediately, your building exterior will eventually begin to deteriorate and you may begin to notice spots of mold and mildew, discoloration, etc. With SoftWashing on a regular schedule, your commercial property’s exterior will delight your customers and save you money in the long run. Here are the top 4 reasons why it’s important to clean your commercial property exterior on a regular schedule:   


  1. SoftWashing Regularly Prevents Costly Damage To Your Exterior

In addition to being the most effective method for removing stains, SoftWashing gets to the root of the problem and to eliminate future bio-growth. With new drone technology, hard to reach areas of multi-story buildings can be safely and effectively cleaned. Spots of dirt and environmental contaminants only get worse when not addressed. The cost of SoftWashing on a regular schedule is far less than the cost of re-painting or replacing siding in areas that have been neglected. Not to mention, the cost of a roof replacement on a commercial property!


  1. SoftWashing Regularly Eradicates Things That Attracts Pests

Especially important for businesses that sell food yet applicable to most types of businesses, regular SoftWashing deep cleans and prevent odors on the pavement and loading areas around your commercial property. Left untreated, debris, dirt and grease can attract pests like rats, mice, raccoons, skunks and insects like cockroaches and flies. Moreover, infestations cause a potential health hazard as many pests carry diseases. Another concern is that infestations do not always remain outside when inclement weather arrives as the creatures may move inside for more food or a safer shelter.


SoftWashing uses safe chemicals to aid in the break-down of grease and contaminants so they can be easily washed away. The products used in the SoftWash System not only clean, they penetrate, sterilize and eliminate the root of the problem, while inhibiting future growth.


  1. SoftWashing Regularly Keeps Your Exterior Attractive To Customers

A clean business exterior will show your customers you care about cleanliness, which will attract more business. Imagine being in the customer’s shoes and shopping or dining at a business that is dirty. A customer would be more likely to choose a business that is clean on both the inside and outside, which will keep them coming back knowing that your business takes pride in everything from the small details to the large ones.


  1. SoftWashing Regularly Helps Prevent Injuries To Customers

Nearly every business with a brick-and-mortar location has a parking lot. Unless you only have street parking or a nearby parking garage that your customers use, they’ll be expecting a clean and safe parking lot. Regular SoftWashing of your parking lots and walkways are an important part of your commercial property maintenance that you should never ignore as one of the most common liability issues is slip and fall injuries - many of which happen in parking lots. Oil from cars, coolant and other vehicle fluids can cause slip when walking. SoftWashing the parking lot and walkway areas regularly will help protect your customers, employees and vendors from these preventable accidents and claims.
