Cleaning Building Exteriors
There are many reasons why keeping your warehouse’s exterior clean is an important priority in overall building maintenance. Not only does regular cleaning keep your building up to code and in good condition, it helps maintain your reputation as a company that cares about maintaining standards. From top to bottom, keeping the building clean is an investment in your business’ success.
What to Know About Sandblasting
Why Choose Blast Cleaning?
Sandblasting, or blast cleaning, is an effective and efficient way to clean many types of things, from cars, engines, and radiators to walls, ceilings, and floors. When it comes to a building’s façade, these surfaces are exposed to lots of wear from weather and dirt. Brick, wood, metal, and plastic all have their unique textures and degrees to which dirt clings to them. Over time, the buildup of grime can deteriorate the outside of your building and lead to costly repairs.
Blast cleaning is a technique that uses a liquid with abrasive material to blast away dirt at a high pressure. Although it’s called sandblasting, sand isn’t always the material used. Silicon and glass are among the many other options for abrasive media that can be used to blast clean. Dustless blasting is a technique that uses water to catch the debris during a blasting project. The right technique will depend on your situation, and working with a professional will ensure the appropriate method is chosen.
Stay Up to Code
Maintaining local regulations and standards is an essential part of keeping your business prosperous. Your facilities manager oversees the maintenance of the building, and when your business schedules your cleaning services with local professional sandblasting contractors, they will be aware of the regulations and standards that need to be adhered to.
Prepare for Repainting
Sandblasting can be used to remove paint from your building’s exterior and prepare it for a fresh coat. Chipping or cracking paint on any material doesn’t look good, and it can be hazardous if it accumulates around the building. Deteriorating paint will also collect dirt and grime, making it difficult to clean and easier for corrosion to set into the façade’s material. An even coat of paint will protect your exteriors, keeping moisture and dirt out of the cracks, pores, or ridges of the siding.
When the outside of your warehouse is kept clean, it sends a message to your partners and anyone visiting your facility that your business is a responsible one that cares about maintaining its premises. This kind of professional atmosphere also supports good team morale, allowing them to have a sense of pride in where they work.
