Many factors play into a commercial establishment’s ability to attract potential customers and maintain the patronage of existing subjects. One such issue is a clean and inviting exterior. A discernible percentage of customers are far less likely to conduct business with an entity offering dirty facades, windows, and entranceways. Unfortunately, a reduction in customers often leads to a less favorable bottom line. 

Fortunately, however, businesses may avoid this possible pitfall by placing a significant emphasis on cleaning and maintenance. A beneficial action supporting such efforts is power washing. AW Painters, general contractors serving Lehigh County and surrounding Pennsylvania regions, requests our existing and prospective customers read the following article discussing power washing, the process, and the benefits said endeavor might offer commercial establishments. 

Power Washing Overview

General contractors serving Lehigh County perform this process using specialized hoses. These devices hold the capacity to dispel large quantities of highly pressurized, warm water on various surfaces employed to adorn commercial properties. Typically, during a power washing effort, roughly five gallons of water per minute blast against said exteriors. Such force breaks apart large or hard to access collections of dirt and other environmental debris. 

Associated Benefits

A properly executed power wash should yield commercial establishments several benefits such as:

Heightened Aesthetics 

Arguably, the most obvious benefit power washing precipitates is a greatly improved appearance. Well-cleansed environments offer patrons a bright, shiny, appealing, inspiring, and enticing environment. Moreover, appropriately maintained buildings often look newer than structures that do not. 

Lifespan Of Property

Power washed properties usually remain in optimal condition for extended durations. Continual exposure to and the accumulation of dirt and other potentially harmful particles might cause exterior facades to develop issues like:




*Complete breakages

These problems not only diminish aesthetics but could additionally necessitate expensive repairs. 

Increased Property Value 

Power washing is also likely to enhance the property in question’s curb appeal. This real estate principle defines the manner in which an individual views a property from afar. Buildings that offer visual enticement stand a better chance of selling faster and for optimal funds should the building’s owner opt to sell said structure. 

How Often Should A Commercial Property Undergo Power Washing?

Our team of general contractors serving Lehigh County recommend commercial property owners have their buildings power washed several times per year. However, certain circumstances often warrant the action including:

*After significant weather events

*In the wake of major property outdoor gatherings 

*After the spillage of any type of industrial product

*Following the end of each season

Furthermore, the exteriors of buildings inside which industrial products are created or businesses that produce a significant degree of smoke are more likely to need power washing on a more regular basis.
