Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, you’ll want your interior to remain spotless at all times. However, you may be overlooking a crucial component of your home’s or business’s appearance: the exterior. Since the outdoors are more subject to the elements and other natural causes of wear and tear, you may be less inclined to give the facade of your facility constant care. Nevertheless, constant dirt and grime buildup may leave you scratching your head as to how your surroundings have accumulated so much dirt.
Pressure washing is often touted as a highly effective, heavy-duty cleaning option for roofs, the outer walls of homes and buildings, and other such parts of your exterior. Even so, there are other useful services that pressure washers offer, which may not be immediately obvious. This blog will touch on two such options.
Naturally, sidewalks see heavy foot traffic from hundreds to thousands to even millions of people daily, depending on the city. This amounts to dirt, grime, germs, and all sorts of unsavory materials being spread around by the simple act of walking. The amount of dirt you’re unknowingly transferring with your shoes is unthinkable, not to mention more obvious culprits such as food and drink spills.
Even for the oldest sidewalks with years of dirt and grime buildup, a pressure washer can give these sidewalks life and color again. As the name implies, pressure washing utilizes highly pressurized, high-temperature water, which forcefully sloughs off even the most deeply ingrained stains from a variety of materials. In fact, the force exerted by the pressurized water is so high that it can even cut through the material underneath! With such a potent tool, it’s no surprise that pressure cleaners can clean up even the grimiest, most well-traveled of sidewalks.
Gum does not generally come in black colors. The most common color of gum is pink, a far cry from the black wads of gum that have been ground into sidewalks, streets, and other places where people walk. This is precisely the reason that the gum that litters the ground everywhere has taken on this color: it has been stepped on countless times, dirt and other materials being pressed into it until it takes on that darker, dirtier color. This constant treading and pressing of gum into the pavement makes it all the more difficult to pry off, which is why sidewalks and streets everywhere are littered with it.
The strength of pressure washing can remove even the most stubborn pieces of gum from a surface. With the combination of heat and an extremely focused cone of pressure fixed on the gum-ridden area, what seemed like an irremovable blemish on your sidewalk or surface will come off with ease.
