You know those tough stains around your property that you can’t budge, no matter how hard you try? Remember the precious weekends you’ve wasted risking body parts climbing an unsteady ladder, trying to clear your gutters?
Maybe it’s that unsightly oil stain on your concrete driveway or the decades of moss and mildew on your roof. Perhaps the stained pool shade makes you shudder every time you go for a swim, squashing a tiny bit of joy each time. But you’d rather be in the pool than cleaning it.
What if we told you there’s a more efficient, safe and reliable solution to your home maintenance woes? ‘Really’, you ask? ‘What is it?’
Well, we’re glad you asked. Let us introduce you to high-pressure cleaning and how it can help you make the most of your free time.
So, what is high-pressure cleaning? How does it work?
As the name suggests, high-pressure cleaning uses air and water blasted from a nozzle at high pressure making light work of hard-to-shift substances like built-up grime, grease, mould, moss, mildew and other nasties.
The force a pressure cleaner expels water is measured in Pounds Per Square Inch (PSI). Machines ranging from 1000 PSI to 10,000 PSI are low to high-pressure cleaners. A high-pressure jetting machine expels water at 10,000 PSI, used in industrial cleaning.
High-pressure cleaning needs to be approached with caution. The combined air and water force can damage surfaces if you don’t know what you’re doing. There are also surfaces you shouldn’t pressure clean, such as asbestos roofing sheets or lead-based paints. It’s also essential to have the proper personal protective equipment (PPE), such as goggles, gloves and masks, when required.
What are the benefits of hiring a professional high-pressure cleaning company?
Life’s pretty busy, right? There never seems enough time in the day to fit everything in. And your downtime is too precious to be trying to keep on top of mundane maintenance tasks. Your time’s too valuable for that!
There are lots of benefits to outsourcing to a high-pressure cleaning professional. Let’s take a quick look at some of them:
- Time savings: This is the number one benefit that busy home and business owners get from outsourcing their pressure cleaning jobs. You get on with life while your property gets a new lease on life.
- Increased property value: High-pressure cleaning can help restore your home to its former glory, increase curb appeal and add thousands to the sale price. Maintaining a property can also extend the lifespan of commercial plant and facilities.
- Improved health and safety: Pressure cleaning removes dirt, mould and other harmful contaminants. As part of a regular maintenance plan, it can also help reduce wear and tear on plant equipment. Reducing the risk of failure or malfunction.
- Expertise, experience and assurance: When you hire an established professional cleaning company with years of experience and covered by insurance, you can relax. Hiring a credible, reputable company means you’ll have peace of mind knowing that if your property is damaged, the company is insured. They’ll also have the correct cleaning and safety equipment to complete the job thoroughly and efficiently.
