Commercial Exterior Power Washing
How is Commercial Exterior Power Washing Different from Residential?
One of the biggest differences between residential and commercial exterior power washing is the surface materials that are typically treated. Commercial buildings are usually made of brick or block, while homes are often covered with siding. Bricks and blocks, including any paint, can typically handle more force than residential siding. This allows them to be blasted harder, so washing is often completed faster.
Commercial buildings also tend to be subject to more dirt, and more forms of it. People driving in, around, and out of parking lots cause a gray/black, sticky dust to be lifted from the ground and settle onto every available surface. This material is actually a combination of asphalt and tire rubber. It can take some serious cleaning to get it off of things. Commercial buildings are also sometimes subject to direct vandalism, which takes even more work to clean away.
