5 Ways Parking Lot Maintenance Benefits Your Business

5 Ways Parking Lot Maintenance Benefits Your Business

If you own a business that has its own parking lot, you may not have thought much about the need to keep the parking lot in tip-top condition. However, even though
your parking lot may not seem significant in the big scheme of things, your customers will see
the parking lot before they see your business, and they will form impressions.
You should take the time and effort to maintain your parking spaces. Below are five benefits your
 business will gain if you perform regular parking lot cleaning and maintenance.

1. Promote Your Business as Customer-Oriented

One of the benefits of keeping parking spaces well-maintained is the promotion of your business
as customer-oriented. In fact, customers view the parking lot as the place where the welcome
mat is rolled out to the public.
Due to the importance placed on personal vehicles by New Zealand customers, a parking lot
says a lot about your business' commitment to individuals. A clean, well-lit, smooth, and brightly
marked parking lot lets your customers know that you care about providing safe accommodations
for visitors. By extension, you will be viewed as a trustworthy and helpful person in all your
business dealings.

2. Establish Your Business as Competent

A well-maintained parking lot establishes your business as competent. No one wants to work
with an incompetent company or be served by someone who can’t take care of their own
A parking lot that isn't overgrown with weeds or full of rubbish demonstrates that your business
can handle its affairs well. However, if potholes fill the lot and line stripes are faded beyond
recognition, then your business will look as if you don't have the resources or ability to manage
your own affairs as well as the affairs of others.

3. Prevent Liability Claims

A reason why your parking lot should be kept maintained is to prevent possible liability concerns.
A slip, trip, or fall in your business parking lot could lead to an expensive lawsuit for you to
defend against or settle.
On the other hand, however, a well-maintained parking lot that can be easily navigated by
drivers won’t involve you in a lawsuit. Parking lots that are dark and dirty are accidents waiting
to happen, and it’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt.

4. Lengthens the Lifespan of Parking Surfaces

When you maintain your parking lot, you will lengthen the lifespan of the underlying material.
A parking lot may look hard and untouchable, but asphalt can be quickly turned into a thick river
of goop if the outdoor temperatures rise significantly.
However, a maintained parking lot can resist some of the potential damage and needs
renovating much less often than neglected parking surfaces. Maintenance involves preparing
the surface to keep moisture out of the asphalt grains and crevices. In addition, sealing can help
immensely by focusing on problem areas and creating a dry space.

5. Keeps Criminals Away

Many criminals enjoy finding a dark, colorful place to ply their trades, so don't allow your parking
lot to become one. Most criminals are seeking an easy, fast getaway, and an empty parking lot is
a good target. Customers are aren’t likely to visit if they are concerned about their lives and
personal property.
As a result, keep your parking lots well-lit and patrolled by police or security. Don't allow small
problems to grow into bigger ones, but instead fix problems while they are still budding issues.
For example, be sure to replace each bad light bulb as it appears instead of holding off to grab
a few more.
If you have questions about your parking lot or need to clean it, be sure to contact
Wash Rite New Zealand for help. Our team of professionals is ready and willing to assist you.

Selling Your Home? Think About Some Low Pressure House Washing

Selling Your Home? Think About Some Low Pressure Washing

Are you selling your home? If so, take some time to get the exterior looking its best. You may be able to sell your home with ease, but you also want to get the best possible price. Apart from painting the property and staging it with modern, clean furnishings and decor, consider cleaning it thoroughly with a power washer.
A low pressure house wash gets off years of caked-on dirt and grime, and you may be able to use it in more areas than you’d think. Read on to learn about the benefits of using a house wash company and how you can use one to prepare your home for buyers.

Consider the Advantages of a House Wash
Curb appeal is extremely important when selling a home. Many home buyers are primarily interested in the look of the home. Not only do they want a home that is clean and attractive, but they may also see a lack of cleaning as a lack of maintenance. A home that is dirty looks poorly maintained and may lead potential buyers to think the property has additional problems. 

Wash the Front of the House
For the front of the house, you may want to start with washing the roof. Over time, roofs often build up unsightly algae. You may not have even noticed this happen. If you compare your roof now with pictures from when it was first installed, though, the picture may look quite different. The roof is one of the things that matters most to buyers, as this component is very difficult and expensive to replace.
The siding of your home will also likely need to be washed. Though siding is low maintenance, low pressure washing it from time to time will often have the same impact as painting a home. 
Apart from the roof and siding, consider the front walkways and the driveway. Your buyers are going to see these areas first. Washing will remove oil stains and dirt stains in addition to taking out plant matter.

Wash the Back of the House
After buyers look at the front of the house, they will often move to the back and look at the yard and around the house itself. Use a low pressure washer to rinse off your deck and restore the wood to its previous splendor. Similarly, you may want to rinse off your fences, walkways, and any accent pieces as well.
If you have a pool or a water feature, it will often get stained over time or will build up minerals. To wash this area, first drain it and then rinse it out. This step can also reveal any issues or weak spots at the bottom of the pool or water feature.

Get a Professional House Wash
After all this, you may be tempted to purchase a pressure washer on your own or rent one so that you can clean your home yourself. However, there are many advantages to hiring a professional. A professional exterior cleaner knows exactly how to complete the washing without damaging things, such as the deck or the fence. Certain areas could be permanently damaged if you neglect to set the pressure correctly.
Further, pressure washers can be dangerous if you use them incorrectly. A pressure washer puts out a lot of pressure, which can hurt you if you lose control of it.
Expensive pressure washers also work much better than conventional, at-home power washers. That means a professional with a commercial-grade washing unit will complete the job much faster than you could.

How Often Should You Wash Your House?

How often should you wash your house?

Most people clean the interior of their homes daily.  If you have small children or pets like us, you probably clean your home several times throughout the day! We clean the interior of our home so often that we often think of hiring a maid service. Some of you may already do that. But why? It’s simple really. A clean house is safer, more comfortable to live in, and definitely more appealing to the senses! It just makes us feel more at home when we live in an organized and clean environment.

So why would we want to clean the exterior of our home? Doesn’t rain and wind wash away the things that make our house dirty? Not by a long shot.

The number one reason we keep the exterior of our home cleaned is for appearance. We are simply more proud of our home when it is clean and well-kept. Curb appeal is very important for most home owners. The visual appearance of your home also plays a large benefit in your home’s perceived value.
How often do we drive by a neighborhood and notice nearly half or more of the homes in that neighborhood are dirty and covered in algae? It’s not often that we see those homes and think, “Those are some nice homes.” Dirty homes drive the property value down!

Did you know that giving your home a good wash once a year is actually beneficial to you and your family’s health?

The eaves, soffits, cracks, crevices, and overhangs on your home are ideal hiding places for insects, spiders, and other nasty creepy-crawlers. These places are also perfect places for mold, mildew, and algae to grow. If your home is left untreated for too long, you could start seeing tiny eco-systems growing all over your home!

So what’s the benefit to your health?

Do you or any members of your family suffer from seasonal allergies? It’s not uncommon for most people to get the sniffles and sneezes during peak allergy season. But what about people who suffer from allergies all year around? Chances are, they are exposed to the very allergens that are making them sick all day long! All those mold and mildew spores that are hiding on your home’s exterior surfaces are migrating into your home, contaminating the air and creating an unhealthy environment for your family.

So how often should your house be washed?

We recommend washing your home once a year whether you can visually see mould, mildew, or algae growth or not. These micro organisms will avoid sunlight by growing in the cracks and crevices of your home’s exterior surfaces. When you finally see the growth on surfaces such as siding, soffits, or gutters, you’ve waited too long.  

What makes our cleaning process different?

It’s 2019. The days of using a high pressure, pressure washer to clean everything are over. We use a much gentler process. It’s call soft-washing. We apply a detergent based solution to your home’s exterior surface using dedicated soft-washing equipment. Our equipment is capable of washing up to four stories high from the ground at only 70 PSI to 150 PSI! That’s about the same as the pressure coming out of your garden hose. After about 10 minutes, our solution will completely eradicate any and all organic growth on your home’s exterior surfaces. We then rinse the solution off your home leaving it clean, bright, and visually appealing again!
If you’re interested in having your windows cleaned up to perfection after having your home washed, we can take care of that for you the same day. Click here for more information. Residential Window Cleaning

What Will A Exterior Wash Clean, And Why Is It Necessary?

1. Signage
Signs are important because they give consumers an idea of what to expect as a customer and a name to associate with that experience. Similarly, if your storefront signs are covered in filth, customers will be left with a lousy image to relate with your company.
2. Floors
The floor is, perhaps, a customer’s first clue to your sanitation practices, especially if you own a restaurant. Customers want to know that their food will be prepared under safe conditions; grime-filled grout and greasy floors will not convince them.
A dirty floor isn’t just unsanitary though — it’s dangerous. Customers could slip or fall, and might even file a lawsuit. Either way, its not the sort of reputation you’d want for your business.
3. Dumpster Pad Area
While this area might not be at the front of your store, it is likely nearby. Even if garbage is collected often, bacteria is sometimes left behind. Over time, dumpsters will develop an odor that will drive potential customers away.

House washing is one such example. If conducted by a novice, you won’t just be left with a home that isn’t clean; you might be dealing with irreparable damage. DIY power cleaning equipment, in the hands of beginners, can prove to be more trouble than it’s worth.

A day’s worth of toil can result in a home that looks even worse than it did before the DIY attempt. And that is a valuable weekend afternoon wasted.
