Many hard surfaces, such as concrete, certain plastics and treated wood, are difficult to clean with regular cleaning methods – solid but highly porous surfaces that absorb oils and other discolourations easily, but are really difficult to remove. Power washing is the obvious tool to deal with these issues. Using high pressure jets of water, we are able to remove a lot of the hard to get at discolourations and oils on these surfaces quickly. Its an excellent tool for cleaning parkades, walkways, concrete pillars and other exterior surfaces.
Parkade Cleaning is commonly overlooked when considering how to keep a building healthy and clean. Since most are under cover and/or poorly lighted, and parking areas are generally expected to be “dirtier”, they are not considered an area for regular cleaning. Nevertheless a clean parkade is essential for keeping an entire building clean. They are a major source of contaminants that are brought into a building. This includes oils, soil, salts and other chemicals from automobiles, storage and waste disposal facilities. They get tracked onto interior surfaces like carpets and hard surface floors, where they can cause discolourations and/or permanent damage. Thus its essential for buildings to have a periodic parkade cleaning as part of its general cleaning strategy.
The primary method of cleaning these areas is pressure washing, which quickly and efficiently dislodges and removes most dirt and solutions from all surfaces. During periods of water restrictions, we can bring in water tanks that meet municipal and regional guidelines for water usage. For areas where we are unable to use pressure washing, we can use scrub brushing to achieve the same effect.
