The Importance of Cleaning Your Fire Stairs

The Importance of Cleaning Your Fire Stairs

Whilst our cutting-edge ride-on sweep and scrub machines are excellent for the main floor surfaces of your car park, there are some important areas they can’t reach.

One of these, and probably the most important of them all, is the stairs in your fire exit.

It’s imperative that these stairs are maintained to the highest order, in case of an emergency which requires evacuation.

If the stairs are not maintained, then they could end up impeding an evacuation when an emergency is declared.

That could result in injury, or even death.

Therefore, you simply must ensure your fire stairs are regularly cleaned by a professional cleaning contractor, like Sydney Sweep and Scrub.

We are extremely well versed in thoroughly cleaning concrete stairs with our modern pressure washers.

Here are the benefits of a regular pressure wash for your fire stairs.


The primary concern when it comes to fire stairs is the safety of your patrons and staff; the people who will actually use them.

If your stairs aren’t safe, they won’t be able to do the job they were built for – see people out of your car park safely.

Therefore, it’s imperative that any stains, grime, moss and dust is cleaned from your stairs on a regular basis.

The best way to do this is to schedule Sydney Sweep and Scrub to pressure wash your fire stairs regularly.

Utilising a combination of high pressure water (hot or cold) and eco-friendly chemicals, we’ll leave your fire stairs gleaming.


Unclean fire stairs can also threaten the health of your customers and staff.

For example, in an enclosed area like a stairwell, the dangers of dust to anyone using the space are exacerbated.

Dust can irritate the airways, eyes and skin and make existing respiratory conditions like asthma and bronchitis much worse.

Moreover, certain types of dust like silica dust can actually cause cancer.

Consequently, you need to be on top of the game when it comes to cleaning your stairs regularly and removing the threat that dust poses.


Perhaps your fire stairs are used infrequently, or only when they are being inspected.

Nevertheless, they need to be clean and presentable at all times. It’s a reflection on your business, like the rest of your car park area.
