Cleaning your business’s exterior may not seem important and is probably lower on your cleaning list, but there are some important reasons to keep it in top shape. Cleaning the exterior of your building can make a world of difference. Here are 5 reasons you should clean your building’s exterior:

1. Protect the Structure

Weather and nature can be harsh on any structure. The buildup of dirt, growth of plants, and other debris can take its toll if not taken care of over time. Power washing walls and sidewalks, cleaning gutters, and removing weeds can all help prevent damage. Debris can weaken your building’s structure over time and preventative cleaning can help maintain the building and prevent these issues.

2. Appearance

Your building’s exterior is your customers and guests first impression, it’s important to insure it’s a good one. If your building is covered in dirt and grime their impression may already be low before even entering the building. Keeping the building clean, the lawn and sidewalks kept, and windows clean can make a huge difference. A clean exterior gives customer’s the impression that you care a lot about your business and in turn your customers.

3. Remove Harmful Buildup

Harmful things like mold and mildew can gradually build up on the outside of buildings if not cleaned. Not only are they not healthy but mold can eat away at organic materials like wood and damage the surface layers of your building. If not taken care of they can make their way into your building and cause large and costly problems. Keeping up on regular outdoor maintenance can keep these culprits at bay and save you from any big problems.

4. Save Money

Cleaning your building regularly can help prevent major damage and structure issues. It will also help you to identify any issues early on before they cause major problems. By cleaning regularly, you can keep the cost small and efficient. Waiting a long time in between exterior cleanings can lead to lots of build up and unnoticed damage not to mention a higher cost to take care of the amount needing to be done.

5. Increase Value

Should you ever decide to sell your business or just the building, buyers will love the cleanliness and care that has gone into the building. Your customers will also love the appearance too!
