The use of a pressure washer can produce many positive results. While it is nice to enjoy the aesthetic allure of a clean vehicle, equipment, building, boat, etc., the benefits of regularly washing extend far beyond the pleasure of an unsullied finish. As the saying goes “Cleanliness is next to Godliness” and using a pressure washer to maintain a clean appearance is an obvious benefit, however, we thought we’d focus on a few less apparent perks of pressure washing regularly.
Pressure Washing Protects Your Investments
Whether it is a fleet of vehicles, heavy equipment, or your facility, you’ve got a lot of money tied up in material assets. Unfortunately, there are many forces at work to slowly deteriorate your property such as wind, rain, dirt, rust, bacteria, grease, grime, even sunlight. The easiest way to prevent these forces from taking their toll on your investments is to maintain a protective finish on all your assets, which starts with a regular cleaning. By rinsing off the road’s salty brine from your vehicle, spilled diesel fuel and other harsh chemicals from your equipment, you prevent these elements from damaging the protective finishes designed to preserve your possessions.
Pressure Washing Reduces Downtime
When you regularly wash your equipment, not only are you removing potentially harmful grime, you are also uncovering potential deficiencies that may cause your equipment to fail. Pressure washing provides the perfect opportunity to regularly inspect and identify issues with vehicles and equipment. When you are able to pinpoint potential problems early, it is much easier to fix inexpensively before it snowballs into a costly service incident resulting in down-time.
Pressure Washing Increases Value
While “curb-appeal” has a connotation that suggests a real estate, the term can easily be applied across many spectrums. Clean equipment, vehicles, and facilities suggest a lot about the companies and individuals to which they belong. Images matter a great deal. One study even suggests that 55% of first impressions are based on overall appearance. Every day hundreds of people see your place of business, vehicles, or equipment in passing… These people can be potential customers, clients, or friends. By keeping your facility, vehicles, and equipment fresh and clean you give the impression that you care about details and take pride in your image. This is sure to attract attention from the best type of prospects, and sure to you increase your overall value.
