As we enter a new season, one that is accentuated by rainy days interspersed with periods of sunny warmth (Springtime is the word we’re looking for), the receding muck and dirt left over by months of rain, ice, and snow, will often leave an unsightly mess. This accumulation typically affects concrete pathways, parking garages, and also the sides of buildings, effectively leaving many post-winter commercial and residential areas looking very, for the lack of a better word, dirty. In addition to providing the Greater Vancouver area with premium restoration and painting services, Atlas Painting & Restorations Ltd. is also proud to provide our beautiful city with the pressure washing services needed to effectively remove this annual mess.
While on the surface pressure washing may seem like a relatively easy job, in reality it requires a level of skill that extends far beyond basic motor functions. Before undertaking any sort of pressure washing project, our team of professionals takes extra cautions to assess the work site. This requires an understanding of the surfaces that need washing, as well as an idea of which bio-degradable detergents/de-greasers and levels of pressure are going to be needed to make sure the job gets done without causing any sort of property damage.
Much like choosing paint colours for rooms in houses, different types of situations call for different pressure washing strategies. Houses, for example, should typically only be washed using low-pressure settings, as accelerated volumes of water can be severely detrimental to the paint itself. Following one of these washes with a coat of exterior paint is a sure-fire way to make any formerly dirty home look fresh and bright for springtime. On the other end of the spectrum, driveways and concrete surfaces are able to take higher volumes of pressure without deteriorating in any way. In addition to performing our duties quickly and efficiently, Atlas Painting & Restorations Ltd. is also able to provide our clients with a selection of special cleaners which can remove even the most diligent of driveway stains left by oil and rust.
As a general rule within our industry, some jobs are certainly trickier than others. Fans, windows, and lights can be pressure washed as well, but we usually recommend to not try this without dialing professionals, as disaster may result from applying too much pressure. Certain sealants may be applied to windows as well in order to ensure that moisture stains don’t re-emerge months later. Gutters can also be pressure washed, although we typically hand-clean them as this proves to be the most effective and least messy form of maintenance.
Pressure washing is something that can make or break a home or business when spring time rolls around. In order to deal with the accumulated mess caused by harsh weather, mindful eyes and hands are certainly required. By offering some of the best services in Vancouver, Atlas Painting & Restorations Ltd. is able to ensure that our clients enter the sunny season with a property that looks fully invigorated. When it comes to selling a home or attracting customers, it is truly amazing what a difference a good washing can make.
