Keeping Your Property Safe With Pressure Washing

Pressure washing for safe property

Owning a residential or commercial property comes with responsibility. It's up to you to keep conditions safe for anyone who is on your property.

Whether it's the driveway, a walkway, or the deck, there are common places that gather foot traffic, and those same areas can pose a safety threat. One of the most common issues that leads to lawsuits for home or business owners is a slip-and-fall.

In the winter, the weather is a concern, and you have to keep sidewalks free from ice and snow. The rest of the year, it's often about using pressure washing to clear away slick contaminants that make surfaces dangerous.

The Power of Power Washing for Your Home or Business

When most people think of power washing, they think of aesthetics. While it's true that one of the best benefits of regular pressure washing is that it beautifies your property, there's more to it than curb appeal.

Savvy property owners are well aware of the benefits associated with professional exterior cleaning and keeping conditions safe. The most common places on a property for slippery buildup that can be hazardous are sidewalks, parking lots, driveways, and outdoor living spaces.

Hiring a professional pressure washing company to clean these surfaces helps to eradicate possible culprits like:

  • Algae
  • Moss
  • Mildew/Mold
  • Oil
  • Grease
  • Gum

Even if you schedule a house-washing or commercial exterior building wash service, you need to request cleaning for places that get high foot traffic. You'll protect yourself against being liable for personal injuries and have peace of mind about making your property safer.

Keep Conditions Safe

Examples of scenarios where someone could fall on your property are things like:

  • Carrying groceries from the car in the driveway
  • Enjoying a BBQ on your deck
  • Taking a walkway through your backyard
  • Using a sidewalk to come into your business
  • Hanging out on the paver patio next to your pool

Fail to keep these surfaces clean, and it could lead to a buildup of slick contaminants. Even worse, these conditions could lead to an injury - and one that you'll be liable for.

Of course, there are other causes of trips that lead to injuries, like cracks in concrete. However, slipping is the number one problem, and one that's easier to deal with.

It's easy for these substances to build up without the property owner even realizing it. The right amount of shade and a damper than usual season is all it takes.
