The Importance of Pressure Washing Commercial Buildings

Things such as bird droppings and unsightly dirt make a poor first impression on potential customers. If you are a business owner looking to attract as many new customers as possible, ensuring that your commercial building has a clean exterior is a vital place to start. 

Of course, exterior cleaning for a commercial building is a task that’s easier said than done. If you throw in other exterior elements of your commercial property such as sidewalks and parking lots then it becomes even more tedious and challenging. 

Regular pressure washing and/or power washing is key to solving this challenge, and utilizing a high-quality commercial pressure washing service such as the one offered by Enviro-Master Services is the key to keeping your building spotless without all the hassle. To help you decide if these services are the right choice for your business, we’ll take a look at everything you need to know about commercial pressure washing services, including its benefits, how it works, and how to choose the best pressure washing company in your area. Pressure washing benefits infographic

The Benefits of Commercial Pressure Washing 

If you are a building owner, commercial pressure washing offers numerous benefits that make it a service well worth considering. This includes benefits such as: 

Boosting Curb Appeal 

How attractive your commercial property looks from the outside has a direct impact on how many customers are convinced to walk through your doors. This is a concept known as curb appeal and is something that every business owner should strive to improve. Of course, nothing harms a building’s curb appeal more than unsightly dirt, mold, or other forms of debris on its exterior walls. If you want to make your building as inviting and welcoming as possible to potential customers, regular cleaning is key. 

Improved Building Maintenance 

The mold and mildew growth that can collect on the exterior surfaces of your building if it is not cleaned regularly doesn’t just make it unattractive; it can also lead to costly damages. Mold and mildew produce acids that are capable of degrading the concrete. Over time, this can compromise the concrete’s strength and integrity along with permanently scarring its appearance. This makes regular concrete cleaning via pressure wash key to prevent expensive repairs in the future.  

Higher Employee & Customer Satisfaction 

No one likes to spend time in a dirty, unsightly building – and this applies to both customers and employees. Providing your customers with a clean, appealing, and sanitary space is something that is sure to boost their satisfaction. 

Higher Property Value 

It goes without saying that attractive, well-kept properties have a higher market value than properties that are not so clean and well-kept. Properties that haven’t experienced structural damage due to mold and mildew will maintain their long-term value. If you would like to keep the value of your property as high as possible, keeping it as clean as possible with regular pressure washing is a key priority.

How Does Commercial Pressure Washing Work? 

Professional pressure washing services such as Enviro-Master services utilize powerful industrial pressure washers equipped with the latest technology in order to quickly and thoroughly clean a range of surfaces. The washer works by ejecting a jet of high-pressure water that is capable of washing away even the most stubborn buildup. Often, this water is mixed with a cleaning solution designed to break down dirt and grime for an even cleaner finish. 

Commercial pressure washing companies can be hired to clean numerous areas and surfaces, including the exterior walls of buildings, parking lots and parking garages, sidewalks, and pool areas. Pressure washing is an effective method for cleaning almost any hard surface made of concrete, tile, or brick. 

Pressure washing can be used to eliminate almost any type of buildup from these surfaces, including dust, dirt, grime, bird droppings, mold and mildew growth, and any number of other unsightly contaminants. Pressure washing can also be used for the purpose of graffiti removal. 

Where to use pressure washing services

Where Does Commercial Pressure Washing Address? 

We’ve already mentioned that commercial pressure washing is a professional cleaning service that is able to address a broad range of properties, surfaces, and areas. A few areas that are commonly cleaned via commercial pressure washing include: 

Building Exteriors

This is the first area that comes to mind when most people think of pressure washing. In fact, pressure washing is really the only effective method for keeping the exterior walls of large buildings clean. There’s no shortage of debris that can gather on your building’s exterior and likewise no limit on the amount of damage it can cause both in the form of degraded concrete and in the form of unhappy customers. This makes it vital to keep your building’s walls clean with routine pressure washing. 

Building Interiors

A variety of hard surfaces in a building’s interior can benefit from power and pressure washing services as well. This is especially true in restaurants, gas stations, warehouses, and other buildings with high foot traffic. Power washing floors throughout your facility is key. It is the most effective way to remove dirt, grime, and other types of buildup that can accumulate over time. With the right machine and power washing technique, you can even benefit from sanitization.


All of the debris that is capable of gathering on your building’s exterior walls is debris that can gather on your sidewalks as well. Being exposed to a large amount of foot traffic means that sidewalks and walkways often grow dirtier even more quickly than building exteriors. This makes sidewalks one of the most common candidates for commercial pressure washing. 


Like sidewalks, any walkways within your commercial property that are used by employees or guests should be regularly maintained and cleaned. As long as these walkways are made of tile, brick, or concrete as opposed to materials such as gravel or sand then they can be effectively cleaned via power washing. 

Parking Lots

Like your building’s exterior, sidewalks, and walkways, the parking lot for your commercial property can have a big impact on its curb appeal. Thankfully, pressure washing works just as well for asphalt as it does concrete. If you would like to clean dirt, oil, bird droppings, or any number of other debris from your parking lot then commercial pressure washing is the ideal solution. 

Pool Areas 

Commercial properties such as hotels and gyms often offer pools for customers to swim in, and it’s important to keep these pool areas clean, sightly, and sanitary. Pool areas are most commonly lined with either brick, tile, or concrete, making them a good candidate for pressure washing services. 

Dumpsters and Dumpster Pads 

It should be no surprise that dumpsters and concrete pads they sit on can become quite filthy if left unmaintained. While a little dirt and grime within the dumpster itself aren’t too much to worry about, there is a limit to how much is allowable. If your dumpster is emitting odors and/or is visibly unsightly even when it is empty then it is time for it to be cleaned. The dumpster pad that your dumpster sits on needs to be kept clean as well for all the same reasons as the rest of the concrete surfaces on your commercial property. With that said, pressure washing is a highly effective method for cleaning both dumpsters and dumpster pads. 

How Do You Know It’s Time for Pressure Washing Service? 

In most cases, a simple eye test is all that it takes to know whether it is time for pressure washing services. If you notice any visible debris or growth on your walls, walkways, or other surfaces then it is probably time for routine cleaning. Likewise, if you start receiving any complaints from employees or customers about the cleanliness of these surfaces then it is time to consider contacting a professional pressure washing service.
