20 May This is Why Your Sydney Carpark Needs Professional Pressure Washing
If you own or manage a large carpark, you already understand the difficulties that cleaning your space presents. There are all sorts of contaminants that find their way into parking complexes, on the tires of vehicles, shoes of your customers, and those that are blown in by the wind.
Therefore, cleaning can require heavy-duty equipment, such as pressure washers. These are excellent at lifting tough stains from your concrete surfaces, so long as the machine is in the right hands. This is why it’s so important to hire professionals to pressure clean your Sydney carpark.
Understanding the job
It’s important to understand exactly how to get the best pressure washing results possible and unfortunately, your employees probably aren’t equipped with the right knowledge. The right knowledge makes for a faster and more efficient pressure washing service, meaning a much cleaner facility at the end of the day.
A professional carpark cleaning company like Sydney Sweep and Scrub is always your best option for a pressure washing service. Our staff have experience in utilising a wide range of pressure washing equipment, in a variety of settings. That experience has taught us how to get the best results every single time, and how to keep your facility free from damage.
One example of improper use is actually making your carpark dirtier when pressure washing! If you don’t understand how to use the equipment or what to expect while cleaning a carpark, you may simply be spreading dirt and grime from one place to another.
Health and safety
No matter the type of cleaning operation or the equipment that’s being used, health and safety must always be the priority. Pressure washing may seem like a rather innocuous activity, but there are still several risk factors that need to be considered. The most common potential injuries during a pressure washing service are:
- Slip and fall injuries, on wet concrete
- Trip and fall injuries, as there will be power leads and hoses in use
- Back and strain injuries from lifting or moving unnaturally
- Being struck by rocks and debris that is propelled by the pressure washer
- Wounds from high-pressure water, may not look serious at first but are often very deep and require medical attention.
All of these risk factors and injuries can be very serious, so it’s critical that you take measures to avoid them. Unfortunately, if you are attempting to pressure wash your carpark yourself, you’ll be putting yourself (or your employees) at serious risk. It’s likely that you’re not trained in the appropriate practices and don’t possess the right equipment.
However, if you hire professionals to clean your Sydney carpark, you won’t need to worry about health and safety… because we’ll handle it for you! Our employees are highly trained with pressure washing equipment and trained in the possible eventualities when it comes to risk management.
What’s more, they are equipped with the correct PPE, ensuring that they are protected as much as possible. This PPE includes:
- Waterproof boots with adequate grip
- Waterproof, heavy-duty gloves
- Safety goggles
- Face shield where required
- Heavy-duty clothing
- Headgear where required.
This PPE, combined with our know-how, means our employees are always as safe as can be while pressure washing your carpark.
Save yourself time and effort
Pressure washing your carpark yourself will inevitably take plenty of time and effort. It’s hard work and definitely isn’t for the faint of heart. Your carpark probably consists of hundreds of square feet of concrete that sorely needs attention, and this will take hours to clean properly.
Hiring a professional Sydney carpark cleaning company to pressure wash your carpark will save you an immense amount of time and effort. In turn, you can then focus on your business and the other things that matter, rather than trying to learn the ins and outs of operating a heavy-duty pressure washer!
There’s also the issue of knowing which pressure washer to buy. They aren’t cheap, and there is a wide range of pressure washers to suit many different applications. At Sydney Sweep and Scrub, we’re equipped with high-quality pressure washers, and all the additional apparatus to help get the very best clean possible.
Did you know that at Sydney Sweep and Scrub, all of our carpark cleaning operations are performed with sustainability in mind? We don’t use any harmful chemicals or cleaning agents… simply hot water and a lot of pressure! If needed, we can use eco-friendly degreasers for those particularly tough stains and spills.
Moreover, pressure washers actually use less water than a traditional hose or other cleaning methods that you may try to implement. Conserving resources is always important to us, whether that be water, electricity, or fuel.
This sustainable approach ensures that when you hire us to clean your carpark, you’re always having a positive impact on the environment. This is more important than ever, in carpark and warehouse cleaning and throughout other industries and practices.
Regular pressure washing will help to boost your curbside appeal. Essentially, that refers to the first impressions your carpark is making on potential customers, as well as clients who might be visiting your complex. A business that takes itself seriously will have its Sydney carpark cleaned regularly.
This also means that instead of focusing on cleaning, you can put your mind to work on the things that matter most. That includes maintaining other facets of your carpark and your business, attracting and retaining customers, and providing exceptional service.
