Parking lot cleaning is important for many reasons, in this month’s blog post, we highlight 4 of the biggest reasons to clean and maintain your parking areas.

 1. Image is Everything. People prefer a business with a clean image. Like it or not, the exterior of your property creates a first impression before a customer even sets foot through the front door. The accumulated dirt and trash in your parking lot could adversely affect the image a potential customer has of your products and services. I visited a local restaurant once (once being the operative word) that had a scum-covered front entry. The soles of my shoes stuck to the layer of grime on the concrete. Gross. I will not be back. What message is your parking lot sending about your business?

 2. Dirt = Damage. Dirt, sand, pebbles, and other small debris are abrasive. These materials can result in costly damage to your parking lot as they slowly break down the asphalt surface. Customer traffic and weather, among other activities play a role in the constant grinding down of your parking lot. As it begins to deteriorate, it creates even more damaging materials including small pebbles and loose aggregate. Repairing and resurfacing a parking lot is much more expensive than a recurring sweeping service. Would cleaning your parking lot now be worth the time and money saved in the long run?

 3. Cleanliness Begets Cleanliness. Cleaning your parking lot can work the same as removing graffiti from your walls to prevent further graffiti. People are more likely to treat a clean environment with more respect than a dirty one. If there isn’t a scrap of trash to be seen, a litterer may think twice. Whereas if there are tens of thousands of cigarette butts in your parking lot, what is one more, right?

 4. Pride and Professionalism. Take pride in property ownership. Don’t own? That’s okay, then take pride in your place of business. It will show your community of customers and other business owners that you take your business seriously and value it enough to keep it well maintained. A clean parking lot is inviting and welcoming to a customer. Trashy parking areas make people wonder if they should just keep on driving. Which one is your parking lot?

Technicians have been busy cleaning and sealing pavers in Scottsdale, Arizona. We have successfully pressure washed over 10,000 square feet of pavers in the last 10 days. The clean pavers get a coat of commercial grade sealer that enhances the paver surface. The sealer really makes the colors pop and also protects the pavers from stains, spills, and even harmful UV rays that can bleach out paver colors. Sealed pavers are also easier to keep clean, minimizing maintenance efforts around your residential or commercial property.

We maintain pavers for several commercial customers in Scottsdale and Phoenix, steam-cleaning them on a quarterly or semi-annual basis using our industrial pressure washers.

For more information about pressure washing your pavers or to get a free estimate for paver sealing services, call (6o2) 373-1515 or visit our paver seal website.

A lot of homes are still vacant in the valley and have been sitting for months or even years. Pressure washing is a good way to get them cleaned up before placing them on the market. You clean the inside, why not the outside?

They clean all types of surfaces including concrete, asphalt, pavers, brick, stone, etc. If you have a messy situation that requires a little more power than a standard garden hose, give us a call and let us know how our pressure washers can help.

So… you have a mess. A big mess. You need the help of a mobile pressure washing service but you don’t know where to start. Don’t worry, you are not alone. Most people don’t know anything about power washing until it is time to hire a company to help them clean up the mess. The three most important factors to consider when hiring a power wash company are their equipment, experience, and professionalism.

The equipment used by a power wash company is paramount to the quality of service they will be able to provide. Good pressure washers use industrial machines that are capable of producing steam and hot water over 250°F (121°C) and 3,000psi. Heat is the key to effective pressure washing. Bad pressure washers skimp on their equipment to keep costs down, but you ultimately pay the price. They will have to spend more time on the same area and/or use harmful (and expensive) chemicals to get the same results as a “good” company. Ugly pressure washers use consumer or light-commercial grade cold-water machines with improper accessories. They can cause serious damage to your property and should be avoided at all costs.

Shiny, high-tech equipment alone will not clean up your mess. It needs to be put in the hands of a trained and experienced technician. Due to the poor economy and the relatively low start-up costs, new companies show up all the time. A good company, however, will have at least several years of experience. Many power wash companies have been in the industry for over 10 years with a proven track record backed up by references, before & after photos, and a high rating with the local Better Business Bureau. Bad companies will use unqualified, inexperienced, or undocumented workers to save money. Again, you pay the price with poor quality or property damage (3000 pounds per square inch can do a lot of damage if not properly handled). Ugly companies pay sub-standard wages to undocumented workers “hired” from the parking lot of the local hardware store that have never operated a pressure washer before. Again, irreparable damage is highly possible.

The final consideration when choosing a good power washing service is their level of professionalism. Good companies respond quickly to your requests and are have excellent verbal and written communication skills. A professional company will be able to accept credit cards as a method of payment. Contractor licenses are not typically required, but the organization should be in good standing with the state’s corporation commission and carry general liability, commercial automobile, and workers compensation insurance. Good companies will happily provide you with certificates of insurance as proof of their coverage to give you peace of mind. Bad companies use pushy sales techniques to make up for their lack of professionalism, will have little or no insurance, and be unorganized and difficult to deal with. Ugly companies are not insured, impossible to communicate with, and will likely disappear once paid or at the first hint of your dissatisfaction.

To find the good power wash services out there, search the Internet or your local business directory and invite 3 or more companies to provide you with an estimate. Good power washers will be happy to provide you with a free estimate. Depending on the size of your project you might be able to get a quote over phone, but larger projects typically require an on-site visit. This allows a good power wash company to give you the most accurate estimate possible and gives you an opportunity to examine their equipment, experience, and professionalism first hand. When you have accumulated all your estimates, use what you have learned here to choose the most qualified company for your particular project.
