When clients approach your place of business, what do they see? Is your company’s exterior making a great first impression or turning away potential clients? Assess it for yourself. Take a walk outside, and approach your business with fresh eyes. If you were visiting your company as a potential customer, would you enter the premises with confidence, or would you head straight to the nearest competitor?
Go ahead, head outside a look around the exterior of your business. No glancing, but a real look. What do you see? Is your parking lot clean or filled with debris? Do you see gum on the sidewalk, or stains? Is your siding clean and fresh, or covered with mold and pollutants? Are the windows and doors clean or marked with stains, fingerprints, and smudges? How about your welcome mat; is it clean or has it seen better days. Each of these areas can influence potential customers, employees, and colleagues in a negative way. Now that you have taken a good hard look, what do you think? Would you want to do business with your company? Would you want to work there? Would you invest in a company which looked like yours at first glance?
All this assessment leads to the question: Can you afford not to make a good first impression? If you are like the majority of businesses, the answer is no. You need to make a good first impression and that begins with the outside of your business. Now, you may be wondering what you can do to get the outside in tip-top shape, welcoming visitors, customers, and employees, and making a great first impression. Here’s how!
You can have your property pressure washed regularly by a professional cleaning service like Tidy Team Cleaning Service. Pressure washing can help you make an excellent first impression. What is pressure washing? Pressure washing utilizes high intensity water spray (and cleaner as needed) to clear away dirt, debris, and stains from concrete and asphalt parking areas as well as concrete walkways leading up to your business. In addition, pressure washing can clean mold and dirt from your company’s roof, pollutants from your building’s exterior (siding, brick, stone, stucco, or other surfaces).
The Benefits of Professional Pressure Washing
- Pressure Washing Regularly Helps Your Business Make a Good Impression. With pressure washing, the exterior of your property is always clean and fresh, free of debris, mold, mildew, and stains, and ready to welcome visitors to your business. A clean, well-maintained building tells your customers, colleagues, and employees that you care about quality and pay attention to detail, instilling confidence and making a positive impression.
- Pressure Washing Increases the Life of Your Property. Though you may not realize it, dirt, grime, and pollutants, present in the air, along with mold and mildew, attach to your building (siding, facades, roofs, and more) and cause erosion and abrasion over time. Cleaning exterior surfaces regularly eliminate much of the potential damage, including everyday wear and tear on your building. Pressure washing, then, means you don’t have to replace costly exterior materials (roofing, siding, etc.) as often.
- Pressure Washing Can Help Prevent Illnesses. Those pollutants, mold, and mildew which attach to the exterior surfaces of your building can adversely affect those within your building. Mold, mildew, allergens, and other contaminants can get into your company’s HVAC system and result in respiratory illnesses. Employee illnesses result in decreased productivity due to sick days. Pressure washing your building’s exterior regularly can prevent these types of illnesses and keep your employees and your customers healthy.
