The city of Vancouver is a hugely popular destination for tourists from all over the world. With mountain views, shore lines and natural beauty around every corner, the pressure is on to keep your property appealing. Curb appeal is important to not only commercial properties, but to homes and multi-unit spaces as well. Proper exterior cleaning is a tough game, but our Gorillas are experts at Vancouver pressure washing!
The Importance of Pressure Washing
Many property owners have given up trying to clean away certain areas of their outdoor space. This often applies to any average concrete surface, like driveways, sidewalks and retaining walls. The truth is, that exterior cleaning services can take care of these stains for you. You might have wasted years staring at a stain, but you don’t have to put up with them any longer!
More so than just being a visual issue, dirt, buildup and growth can cause damage to the construction materials around your property. With a damp climate like Vancouver, there is no doubt that moss, mould and algae are an issue. These invasive growths will weave themselves into every crack and crevice of hard materials. As concrete is a porous material, having prolonged periods of held moisture can weaken materials from the inside and out. This means that you are dealing with unnecessary repairs and replacements. Instead of letting dirt and stains make a negative impression of your property, when you can call a Gorilla instead. Power washing services are not only for older properties, as new masonry can be prone to an issue known as efflorescence. When water passes through a porous material, it can cause the salt to migrate to the surface. Here it forms a layer. Conventional cleaning methods can’t get rid of this chalky deposit, but our Gorillas can!
Vancouver Pressure Washing: Why Choose Gorilla?
Our Vancouver Pressure Washing Service begins by treating the area with a disinfectant and algae remover. This is designed to slowly eradicate the build-up produced by prolonged exposure to the elements. Next, our pressure washing technicians start scrubbing. They use ‘Gorilla Brushes’, backed up with some good old-fashioned elbow grease. And that’s all before we even start the pressure washing!
Our Gorilla techs use a cleansing agent that creates foam on the surface removing efflorescence without damaging the masonry and allowing your new investment to shine. Trained technicians combine hot water and technique to get the best possible results for your exterior house cleaning. Pressurized water can cause more damage than you might expect, and that is why our Gorillas are fully insured. Not all house washing uses the same types of tools, so it is important to understand the difference between a pressure cleaning and a soft wash. In addition to expert results, our Gorillas provide all the information necessary to make an informed decision about their Vancouver pressure washing needs.
Our Gorillas: Putting Safety First
Before starting out on your Vancouver pressure washing, our Gorillas treat the area for proper drainage. Our FLOGARD drain guards and basins eliminate any pollutants from entering the water system. In addition to protecting your water system, we watch over our staff and clients as well. Areas are marked with proper signage, pylons, uniforms and safety goggles.
