The Dramatic Effect of Professional Hardscape Washing

You might have noticed that the hardscapes around your business don’t have the same charismatic look that they used to. They have dulled and stained over the years, and now your business looks less vibrant and doesn’t stand out as much as it used to. It might be time for a deep clean to bring back some life to your business’s look.

What is a Hardscape?

Probably a good place to start is what exactly are we talking about? Well, hardscape is just another word for hard materials built into a landscape, this can include all kinds of different features, such as sidewalks, stairs, walkways, retaining walls, drive paths, or any other kind surfaces made from wood, stone, and concrete.

It really is amazing how dirty hardscapes can get if they are not cleaned regularly, and a simple cleaning can make a huge difference in appearance.

Why You Should Be Wary of DIY

Often times you can clean blemishes using a garden hose or chemicals, but sometimes these methods just won’t cut it, and they definitely won’t produce the dramatic change in appearance that comes from a deep clean.

So, maybe you should go get yourself a pressure washer and save yourself a couple bucks on hiring someone else to take care of it. However, it is worth considering that experience can play a huge factor in the results that you get. Pressure washing, if done incorrectly, can actually end up harming the surfaces you are trying to clean. Incorrect use of a pressure washer can cause pitting and end up degrading materials. The amount of pressure, the angle at which you spray and how far away the nozzle is from the surface all play a role in using the pressure washer correctly.

If you are cleaning pavers, the sand or mortar between can be unintentionally removed, potentially reducing structural stability. You can also end up washing away the seal coating from these surfaces, making them vulnerable to the elements. Save yourself the trouble and call in the pros so you can be confident that you will get high quality results and spend more time working on the things that matter to running your business.
