Why every property owner should invest in high-pressure cleaning

High pressure cleaning on exterior house August 02, 2022

Have you driven into your driveway and noticed multiple oil stains? Or had lunch on the patio and thought, ‘the paving is looking a little rough?!’ The exterior of your property is open to the elements. Moss grows between pavers. Dirt builds up on bricks, and decks become discoloured from water. It doesn’t take long for your building to look unkempt.

So now you’re searching for ways to bring your property back to its former glory. Maybe you’re thinking of doing a DIY cleaning job? Or wondering about professional pressure cleaning? If you want to maintain the exterior of your building, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll walk you through high-pressure cleaning basics and give you the key benefits so you can make an informed decision.


What is high-pressure cleaning?

High-pressure cleaning removes residues from exterior surfaces such as bricks, tiles, concrete, decks and walls with a high-pressure water stream. The professional high-pressure machine has a heated water tank and a focused jet, with an output pressure of 5000psi – 50 times stronger than a standard garden hose. The combination of commercial-grade detergent and the hose pressure dislodges hard-to-move dirt and breaks down stubborn grease. As a result, high-pressure cleaning keeps building exteriors in pristine condition. 


What can high-pressure cleaning remove?

It may seem like an investment, but exterior house washing and commercial high-pressure cleaning will save you money in the long run. How? Well, think about it. If you leave residue to build up and never remove it, your property will age faster, materials will break down, and you will need to replace them down the track. Renovations are more costly than maintenance, so booking services like deck maintenance will help you save money in the long term. 

Minimises hazards and health concerns 

Dilapidated buildings can house a host of hazards, including mould, dust and pollen. Mould is a particular issue, and its build-up can quickly become toxic, making your property a health hazard. If you have mould growing on the exterior of your building, it’s best to get a professional to remove it. Professional moss removal cleaners use protective equipment to avoid breathing in dangerous spores. 


Why not do a DIY high-pressure cleaning job?

We wouldn’t blame you for being tempted to do a DIY job – you can buy house high-pressure cleaning products at the hardware store, after all! But a DIY job is risky because retail cleaning products can damage porous surfaces and discolour painted walls. It’s also easy to spray the dirt elsewhere, which is not ideal.

Trained commercial cleaners know how to adjust cleaning methods for different surfaces, e.g. when doing oil stain removal from driveways they learn to soak the oil in hot water and alkaline detergent to avoid damage. Professional high-pressure cleaning is also stronger than store-bought hoses, and cleaners use biodegradable cleaning products that are gentle on your property. As a result, you end up with a quality clean without damage.
