All over Canada, property owners are embracing the importance of first impressions. There is no easier way to make the right one than with a clean and bright property. If you feel like your property is too far gone to have a beautiful exterior, let us change your mind. Our Edmonton pressure washing services can give new life to your space.
In a climate like Edmonton’s there is a lot of care that goes into property maintenance. This is obvious during the spring season when residents need to combat seasonal melting and rainfall. When that much moisture is present in the environment, it can collect and settle on the surfaces of your property. If left untreated, it can result in discolouration and even the spread of moss and algae. The hard surfaces of your property such as driveways, sidewalks and even parking lots are susceptible to this. In addition to being visually unappealing, algae can create health hazards. Slippery surfaces around your residential or commercial property can be a huge problem.
Edmonton Pressure Washing: A Multi-Step Process
Our multi-step approach to your Edmonton pressure washing involves floor scrubbers, speciality brushes, and eco-friendly cleaning agents. And that is all before we begin the pressure washing itself. This level of care is what you can expect from our highly-trained Gorillas for every aspect of your property.
Exterior cleanings are becoming an increasingly popular chore but some property owners are still in the dark about the process. Pressure washing is the process of cleaning outdoor areas with high-pressure water streams. These concentrated sprays dig deep into cracks, crevices and pores of construction materials. A professional treatment leaves properties looking their best for longer periods. Before understanding why something works, it is important to know how it works. Grabbing a hose and hard-wire brush might take a layer off of surface stains but that is only a superficial improvement. When you want to get to the root of a stain, it is best to call in the big guns!
Understanding Pressure Washers
As a whole, the makeup of any power tool is complicated but when broken down into components, power washers become easier to understand. These machines are made up of a water inlet (usually a simple hose), a motor, a water pump, high pressure hose and nozzle. Simple enough, right? Just five simple pieces but together, they pack a wallop!
While the framework of these machines might be the same, there are still different types of machines to choose from. For example, the type of stain you are dealing with dictates whether cold or hot water is to be used, and of course, gas or electric motors. Gas motors typically put out 2,000 – 2,800 PSI (pounds per square inch) of pressure, while electric models sit around 1,300 – 1,700 PSI. Once an area is prepped for service, our Gorillas approach staining with our eco-friendly cleaning agent. Cleansers loosen surface dirt and materials, making it possible to aim, shoot and blast those discolourations away.
These services are not limited to the concrete and hard surfaces around your property but can be implemented on regular brick, masonry and even patios. Whether it is for homes or businesses, there is nothing more annoying than wanting to spend time on a nice patio in summer but finding it littered with droppings from your neighbourhood birds. As bad as this may seem at home, it is even worse for businesses (restaurants in particular) that offer patio service. At Gorilla property services, all of our technicians are local to your area, making them available to answer your service calls in a timely and courteous manner.
