Penington Painting is proud to offer power washing! Power washing is using high-pressure water to clean a surface. It sounds easy, but you should leave it to those who do it best. Just take a look at this poor guy on the right, who tried power-washing his deck himself and got distracted by a bug (and he could’ve been injured even worse!). There are many benefits that are a result of this power cleaning method. Penington is concerned about your safety and the health of your property, so we wanted to break down some of these benefits.

  1. It increases building value
    Power washing improves the look of your building greatly, which will increase the value. This high-power water is so powerful, it’s capable of cleaning off graffiti, gum, stains, and other unsightly blemishes.
  2. Power washing is a preventative maintenance
    Keeping your building clean and maintained with regular power washing can prevent costly repairs due to rot, decay, and aging. Power washing helps get the gunk off the building and surrounding areas before they become too damaging in the future, costing you hefty repair bills.
  3. Keeps the building clean
    Along the lines of increasing the building value, powerwashing simply keeps the building clean! It easily removes, dirt, mold, mildew, algae, gum, stains, and other contaminants. This dirt and grime makes the building unattractive and, not to mention, dangerous. An unkempt workplace is a danger zone for injuries. Dirt can lead to injuries before you know it. For example, if there is a build-up of grease or oil in your parking lot or parking garages, an employee can easily slip and fall on their way into work. Before you know it, you’re stuck in the middle of a lawsuit; all because you didn’t get a power-washing!

As you can see, power washing, like most preventative maintenance, ends up saving time and money. It is a popular and interesting service that is vital to the care, safety, and appearance of your building.
