18 Aug Sydney Carpark Cleaning and the Importance of Pressure Washing
Pressure washing is an incredibly versatile method of cleaning concrete and other hard surfaces. That’s why, at Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we utilise pressure washers when cleaning carparks all over the city. This apparatus allows us to remove a wide range of tough stains and contaminants while remaining mobile.
Sustainability is always a critical element of Sydney carpark cleaning. Pressure washing allows us to use minimal water (and no harmful chemicals) to eliminate all kinds of grime from your concrete surfaces, ensuring a positive impact on the environment! If you’re on the hunt for affordable, swift carpark cleaning in Sydney, you’re in the right place.
What is pressure washing?
Pressure washers are instruments that deliver an incredibly high-pressure blast of water from a hose and nozzle. This pressure is adjustable, meaning it can be used on a range of different surfaces. We often use pressure washers to remove:
- Old paint
- Chewing gum
- Oil and grease.
Pressure washers come in a wide range of sizes and power varies from model to model. At Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we utilise a range of cold and hot water pressure washers to get the very best clean for your carpark.
Hot water pressure washing
Hot water pressure washing is ideal for lifting the toughest stains from your concrete surfaces. This application will shoot a high-pressure jet of water at temperatures of up to around 150 degrees celsius, and some go even higher. This water, hotter than boiling point, is extremely effective at removing contaminants like grease, chewing gum, oil and much more.
Cold water pressure washing
Cold water pressure washing can also utilise warmer water, but generally cold water does the trick. This is a more affordable application, because hot water pressure washers tend to be more expensive. However, cold water pressure washing can still remove a wide variety of contaminants from the concrete floors in your carpark.
That includes mould, encrusted dirt and grime, and many more unsightly stains. Cold water is also better for certain surfaces, such as timber and tiles. It’s less likely to cause unwanted damage, while still removing stains and grime. The amount of pressure applied is also adjustable, for both cold and hot water pressure washing.
Cleaning up stains
A busy Sydney carpark facility will inevitably be subject to all kinds of stains! Vehicles coming and going are inclined to drop all sorts of contaminants onto your carpark concrete surfaces, including oil and grease, coolant and a range of other liquids. These inevitably cause stains, which can be difficult to remove from your carpark.
Even dirt and dust that is blown into your carpark or brought in on the tyres of vehicles can cause stains, if it’s permitted to sit there for some time, without being removed. Moisture will also stain your carpark floors, walls and ceilings if your don’t hire a Sydney carpark cleaning company for regular service.
These unsightly stains can have an impact on your business. For instance, people are much less likely to use a filthy, unkempt carpark to store their vehicle. That sort of appearance exudes unprofessionalism and will certainly affect your business.
Chewing gum is everywhere! We see it every day on our footpaths, roads and all sorts of other public spaces. Unfortunately, it sticks and simply will not let go. Chewing gum is essentially a plastic, and is actually a huge problem in terms of pollution. Just One Ocean estimates that over the next five years, we’ll produce more than one million metric tonnes of chewing gum waste!
This kind of pollution presents a huge problem, because chewing gum, like many other plastics, takes thousands of years to decompose. And unfortunately, it’s a problem for carpark owners and managers across Sydney. For some reason, customers and commuters simply love to drop their chewing gum on the ground!
You might have tried to remove this chewing gum yourself… and then, you probably realised how difficult it is. It takes a certain amount of experience, and the right equipment to remove chewing gum from concrete surfaces. At Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we can utilise our hot water pressure washers and biodegradable cleaning agents where necessary, to remove your chewing gum swiftly.
Tyre marks are one of the most common stains in Sydney carparks, but they can be incredibly tough to remove! And in any busy carpark, tyre marks are simply unavoidable. It’s important that you do remove these stains, because they make a carpark look sloppy and poorly cared for. At Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we’ll use our hot pressure washers to remove tyre marks quickly and easily, leaving your concrete floors looking pristine.
